A sympathetically renovated and award winning 3 bedroom (all en suite) barn conversion in a rural yet accessible location offering spacious and contemporary accommodation.


Possingworth Barn enjoys a quiet semi-rural location on the edge of the popular village of Blackboys which has a public house, local store and cafe and a well regarded primary school and is well placed for access to surrounding towns and villages with excellent transport links to major roads and to London.  The larger centres of Heathfield and Uckfield are about 4 miles and 5 miles distant respectively both offering a range of shops, services, major supermarkets and state education for all ages.  For more varied shopping and leisure interests, the county town of Lewes is about 11 miles to the southwest and Tunbridge Wells with its excellent shopping centre is 15 miles or so to the north.  The coast and vibrant city of Brighton are about 40 minutes by car.

Mainline services to London (London Bridge) are available from Uckfield and Buxted (3.5 miles).  Gatwick airport is about 40 minutes by car.

The area offers fine country walks in the immediate vicinity and excellent recreational facilities nearby including equestrian pursuits, cycling, golf courses, local cricket and rugby clubs and watersports.

There is an excellent choice of educational facilities in the general area.  Nearby private schools include St Leonards-Mayfield School for girls, Skippers Hill Manor Prep at Five Ashes, Bedes at Upper Dicker, St Andrew’s at Eastbourne, Eastbourne College and Lewes Old Grammar School.
