Greenwood Granary is at the very end of a sparsely populated and rural “no through road” outside the small village of Punnetts Town (Click here to view a map).
We now have a wall mounted tethered charger for your electric car. (ev charger - pod point)
Within a short distance of several good pubs and a village shop. The local market towns of Heathfield and Hailsham offer a range of facilities including farmers’ markets. The larger towns of Brighton, Hastings, Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells are all within 45 minutes by car as are Glyndebourne, Battle and beaches, stately homes and castles.
Greenwood Granary is in the large garden of Greenwoods Farm which is occupied by the owners, Graham, Sarah, their two children and pets. Access to The Granary is gained via an external staircase and the spacious accommodation is on the first floor. There is solid oak joinery and flooring throughout all finished to an extremely high standard.
There is a large living area with sofas, coffee table, TV with DVD player, music system and a selection of games, jigsaws and local tourist information.
At one end, there is a dining area and fitted kitchenette equipped with integrated dishwasher, fridge with freezer section, combination oven, grill and microwave and ceramic hob.
Steps down lead to the bedroom suite with a king sized bed, shower room with W.C. and basin and dressing area with a sturdy chair bed (2’8” x 6’2”) and a short single bed (2'6" x 5'3"). A cot and high chair can be provided if required at no charge. A separate utility room downstairs has a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron, ironing board and additional WC. There is also space for well behaved dogs, bicycles and the like. Wifi throughout.
Guests have exclusive use of two areas of garden. One is a patio area immediately adjacent to The Granary with garden furniture and a beautiful view of the valley.
The other is the Mandarin Garden (so named because a pair of mandarin duck occasionally visit) which is a fenced area including one of the two ponds and is quite private. This garden is reached via a footpath from The Granary which is screened from the rest of the garden at Greenwoods Farm. The portable barbecue can, of course, be used in either of these two garden areas.
You will find a vast network of public footpaths (one is immediately adjacent) for walking and country lanes for cycling. Starting from The Granary, it is possible to walk for miles through ancient woodland and forestry without using a public road. In addition, the Cuckoo Trail is a disused railway line which has been opened locally and runs for several miles of open walking, cycling and horseriding.Graham has been paragliding in the area since 1993 and will put you in touch with local instructors for hang gliding and paragliding if required and impart local knowledge of the flying sites for those more experienced.
The garden is a haven for wildlife with, for example, coal tits, willow tits, nuthatches, woodpeckers and finches making regular appearances. The resident nightingale may also entertain you in the evening. A flock of redwings numbering hundreds often arrive and numerous pied wagtails live on the lawns. Roe and fallow deer are abundant in the valley surrounding us. We have three particular herds of deer that commonly visit and interested visitors will recognise them by the end of the week! Both Graham and Sarah ride and lessons and hacks can be arranged nearby. At certain times of the year it may be possible to bring your horse with you on holiday to Greenwood Granary. Please enquire.
Open houses and gardens in the vicinity include Batemans, Michelham Priory and Hever, as well as Sissinghurst Castle. Bodiam Castle is a fascinating ruin enjoyed by adults and children alike.
Groombridge Place Enchanted Forest and Garden, Knockhatch Adventure Park with its ski and snowboard centre and Drusillas Zoo are all within easy reach with each capable of providing a full day’s entertainment for all the family.
Having said all that, our guests may well prefer to stay put and enjoy Greenwood Granary in its beautiful setting surrounded by nature.
However, if you have young children, please be aware that the garden has two fenced ponds and an electric fence on one perimeter.
