                                                                                      We all had a great time at Little Bucksteep Oast. The location is very good for visiting the many attractions that East Sussex and Kent have to offer. Brighton, Lewes, Hastings, Battle, Rye, Camber sands and many more are within easy reach from LBO and yet LBO is in a very peaceful location. LBO is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are in themselves set in rural surroundings. The property itself is a converted oast mostly dating back several hundred years however it has a modern feel to it. Two of the three bedrooms are located in the 'oast'. One is a double in a very generously sized room and the other is located upstairs towards the top of the oast and contains the most enormous 4 poster bed I have ever seen! It felt as though I needed to text my wife to check to see if she was in the other side of the bed! I would however like to point out that in my 30 years of marriage holiday beds have tended to be a bit of a let down in terms of comfort on my wife's part. Not this bed at LBO! 'One of the most comfortable ever' according to my dearly beloved! The third bedroom is located off a landing as you go up to the top bedroom. This is a delightful twin (+1) room which floods with light from 3 windows. Back downstairs there is a large sitting room in the main part of the old oast. This is complete with log burner and I would think would be al lovely cosy room on a cold evening (we were blessed by good weather so didn't have the need to test this out!). Past the lounge there is a really good shower room (upstairs there is a modern bathroom with shower over bath) and a utility area with washing machine. This then leads through into a great kitchen/ dining/living space where we spent most of our evening time (when not outdoors). This is a superb space for gathering to eat, talk, play games etc. The kitchen has everything you could need (including dishwasher!) and the dining table could easily seat 10 or more around it. The sitting area is comfortable and overlooks patio and gardens. Outside the 3 burner gas BBQ was well used (there is also a traditional Weber charcoal type of BBQ if this is your preference) and of course the tennis court and swimming pool. Overall a great time was had by all. Our group was 2 x 53yrs, 2 x 21 yrs and 2 x 18yrs but I would think all age ranges could enjoy a stay at LBO. Our only disappointment was that we could only be there for 1 week - you really need more! PS Nearly forgot the 2 lovely Dalmations and the cat!

There was plenty of room for the whole family and so much cutlery and crockery. Beds were very comfortable but low beams caught us out several times! Thank you for providing a travel cot. The house was a great base for the family to get to a wedding nearby. We enjoyed the pool and the trampoline and the wonderful views. It was such a peaceful place to be.

We stayed for a long weekend with friends (and three babies!) and enjoyed every minute. Dilnot barn is finished to the highest standard and was impeccably clean upon our arrival (it was like we were the first guests to ever stay there). We were particularly impressed with the high-spec bathrooms, including brilliant showers. All three bedrooms were lovely and each a great size - we were the first of our party to arrive and struggled to choose which we'd like to use as they are all so nice. The open-plan living room/kitchen made the perfect space to hang out, cook and eat together. The barn is in a beautiful setting with a huge private garden surrounded by trees. The owner, Sophie, was very helpful and responded really quickly to questions by email. We will definitely make use of Dilnot barn again if we are back in the area. Thank you Sophie!
