About the Granary

A tranquil place to unwind with family and friends. The Granary is a luxurious converted barn in rural Sussex. It is in the village of Fulking, six miles inland from the coast and Brighton in a stunning setting by the South Downs National Park. It has four and half acres of maintained gardens. It sleeps eight and includes 2,500 square feet of floor area including a full height two story sitting room. Accommodation would suit one or two families or a group perfectly and comprises a gabled double bedroom with super-king bed (this bed can be set up as two singles with prior notice) and en suite shower room, a twin bedroom, a four-bed bunk room and family bathroom. The large and homely kitchen provides the perfect place for family gatherings, as does the main timbered reception room with wood burner, or the 27 foot games room (sofas and chairs, no games set up but very useful space for spreading into - esp for kids/teenagers) which is separate from the main house with covered access.

It is a perfect place for a getaway at any time of year for familes or groups. Its beautiful situation, comfortable furnishings and large grounds mean there is no need to leave, but there is plenty on offer nearby for the active and adventurous as well.

South Downs National Park and the South Downs Way

The South Downs National Park was established in April 2011 and is the newest of Britain's national parks. It is now an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. The Granary is situated inside the Fulking Conservation Area. The South Downs Way is a long distance footpath in Southern England and is one of Britain's National Trails. It runs for around 100 miles from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in Sussex. Fulking lies on a central section between the Adur valley at Upper Beeding and Pyecombe, which passes by Devil's Dyke and enjoys views of the sea between Brighton and Shoreham. It is used by walkers, cyclists, runners and dog walkers and horse riders and passes by a number of sites of historical interest.

History and Locality

Fulking lies in the quiet parish of Edburton, the next of the spring villages. Edburton church - founded by St Edburga (Alfred the Great's Granddaughter) - is Saxon in origin and was rebuilt in 1180. It contains the oldest leaden font in England. The Shepherd & Dog pub, a well-established favourite across the area, is four minutes walk from the Granary. The popular Royal Oak in Poynings is a mile away. The Granary is close to Fulking's Spring and Fountain which were donated to the village by John Ruskin (a frequent visitor to the village) and dedicated in 1886. Brighton is just 6 miles - and another world away - on the other side of the Downs. The historic towns of Lewes and Arundel are 15 and 20 miles away.

Outdoors and Sports

There are four golf courses within three miles of the Granary, including the parkland of Singing Hills and the Downs links of Pyecombe. The South Downs Way and surrounding trails are very popular with mountain bikers and the area is also well-liked by road cyclists whether heading for downland hill climbs or the flatter and rolling routes north towards the Weald. There are two popular riding stables within a couple of miles - Chestnuts and Three Greys, and a number of local fishing ponds including Steyning, Lancing and Small Dole. Sailing and watersports are available at Hove Lagoon, Brighton Kings Parade and Brighton Marina. Brighton & Hove Albion and Hickstead showjumping are each 20 minutes drive from the Granary.

An Excellent Luxurious Property in a Stunning Location.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Granary for a long weekend to do some walking on the downs and the place could not have been better. A very spacious property with and excellent dining kitchen and comfortable living room made the stay very easy and enjoyable. The location was perfect for walking out onto the Downs and the nearby pub had an excellent menu and great choice of beers and wines. Highly Recommended.

What an amazing place! Great accommodation, ideal location, lovely garden and well kitted out.

  • 5 of 5

We choose the Granary for our girls weekend away and couldn't have done better. Gorgeous high quality accomodation with comfy beds (even the bunks!). Easy access to Brighton for fun and the south downs way right on the door step for relaxation. Lovely pub with great food in walking distance. Also good for families with a huge garden. The owner was really helpful. What more do you need, I would happily recommend this property to anyone.

Spacious, peaceful and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 recently stayed at the property in Fulking. We were made to feel very welcome, with excellent communication and advice from Jo (the owner) both before and during the trip.

The house itself is perfect (even bigger than it looks in the photos!) It is well appointed, with ample space for cooking, dining and relaxing. The beds are comfy and the showers are great - all very welcome for a weekend break.

We were unlucky with the weather so weren't able to make the most of the incredible grounds, but the peaceful setting was appreciated nonetheless.

The house is well sited for a number of easier and longer walks. The local pub is well worth a visit too (good for a rainy day).

On the whole we would definitely recommend the property. We had a fantastic weekend and hope to return again very soon!
