The Games Barn is a self catering holiday home in East Sussex with excellent disabled facilities sleeping up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. It has been rated as a 3-star facility by both Tourism in Britain and , more recently, the AA and has been assessed by Disabled Holiday Information, a charity run for and by those with disabilities. We converted the Barn to a holiday home in 2008 and have enjoyed welcoming very many people of all ages as our guests since then.
The Games Barn is located on the edge of the beautiful ancient village of Mayfield in an extremely quiet location on a 30 acre working farm in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farm has a small number of animals including sheep, pigs, cows, chickens and ducks. The grounds also include a stream with a weir, a wildlife pond and an ancient woodland . The peaceful setting is absolutely ideal for those guests wishing to get away from it all and take a rural break on a farm but is just two kilometres away from the village of Mayfield and all of its facilities and is a short drive from all the main tourist attractions in Sussex, including the south coast beaches.
We welcome people of all ages and are happy to let you help us around the farm including feeding and caring for our animals, collecting eggs etc.
The flexible accommodation makes it ideal for family reunions and we are very happy to provide extra bedding so you can invite different friends to stay with you at different times (up to a maximum of 8 on any night).
The Games Barn is perfect for family gatherings, and is able to accommodate a maximum of 8 people in its four bedrooms (2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms which can be converted to doubles). It has excellent disabled facilities, making it ideal for wheelchair users (we can supply a wheelchair if required) and those with reduced mobility but is equally suitable for able bodied people of all ages.
The dining area seats 8 (we can supply a high chair if required) and opens out onto the decking area. The sitting room features an excellent woodburner (we supply all the wood) and a variety of different comfortable chairs to suit all ages including disabled friendly armchairs.
The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob (4 rings), oven, microwave, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and all the pots, pans, utensils etc you could possibly need (we hope!)
The barn has full mobility facilities including a wet room with sit down shower without a shower basin allowing full wheelchair access and hand rails etc for the toilet area and wash basin. There is level parking with a ramp up to the bungalow. The main doors (front and back) are double size patio doors which open fully. There is a slight threshold on these doors but otherwise once in the barn everything is on one level with no steps. The floors are tiles throughout with rugs that can easily be removed if preferred. Please note the kitchen is a standard size and does not have low work tops for wheelchair users.
We have a separate laundry area which includes a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board, clothes airer and an outside clothes line.
There is an outside decking area with patio furniture seating up to 10 people and there is an enclosed grass area for children (and dogs) to play in.
We have Wi-Fi but please note it works at rural speeds!!
We allow a maximum of 2 pets but please note we charge £25 extra per pet per week/short stay and we expect you to poo pick!!
There are electric heaters in all the rooms. We include 420 units per week of electricity within the rental. If you exceed this usage (very unlikely) we charge 15p per additional unit.
We ask for a damages deposit of £150 in cash on arrival which we return in full on the day you leave provided there are no issues. We expect the property to be clean and tidy on departure.
We ask for 2 payments to secure the property. The first payment of 25% is a non returnable deposit and reserves the dates for your stay. The balance of the rental is due 6 weeks before the holiday starts. Our terms and conditions explain our cancellation policy in detail but please note the deposit is non refundable but we will refund the balance (if paid) provided we are able to re-let the property for the same dates.
