The Cottages

Our Sussex Holiday Cottages have been attractively converted from Victorian cart-horse stabling into self-catering holiday cottages with exposed beams and flint walls. The holiday cottages form a courtyard around a lawn in the old farmyard, with one of the largest 17th century Tithe barns in Sussex. The historic buildings of this ancient courtyard are overlooked by  the impressive stone built Grade II listed farmhouse mentioned as part of the manor of ‘Sillingstone’ in the Domesday Book of 1086.

We love to welcome visitors and share this beautiful spot and some families have been returning for decades! The surrounding Sussex countryside is outstanding and the working farm is at the heart of the South Downs National Park.

Good-sized, outdoor heated swimming pool, open during the summer months, newly resurfaced tennis court and table tennis table are available throughout your stay. Guests staying in our idyllic country cottages can enjoy many footpaths and walks on the farm including the South Downs Way. If you are looking for a holiday place to enjoy (rather than just sleep) then these lovely self-catering country cottages are ideal!

Sorry, no pets.

A Working Farm

Sullington Manor Farm is a traditional working farm on 500 acres in the heart of the beautiful South Downs National Park.

Situated, as Sussex is, between London and the South coast of England means relatively easy access to and from the continent which means that Sussex has been inhabited for centuries. The result is – lots to see and do!

The Wedding Venue Barn

Sullington tithe barn was recorded in 1960s by Nicklaus Pevsner as the ‘finest’ barn in Sussex and is known to be one of the longest barns in Sussex. Although restored in 2013 the 400 year old barn retains its warm atmosphere and authenticity and we now offer a wonderful wedding or event venue.

Sullington Tithe Barn comes with exclusive use of all cottages so your function will not disturb other guests.  To maintain the tranquillity of the farm we only host six weddings each year.
