Greenwood Granary is at the very end of a sparsely populated and rural “no through road” outside the small village of Punnetts Town (Click HERE to view a map).

Within a short distance of several good pubs and a village shop. The local market towns of Heathfield and Hailsham offer a range of facilities including farmers’ markets. The larger towns of Brighton, Hastings, Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells are all within 45 minutes by car as are Glyndebourne, Battle and beaches, stately homes and castles.

Greenwood  Granary is in the large garden of Greenwoods Farm which  is occupied by the owners, Graham, Sarah, their two children and pets.  Access to The Granary  is gained via an external wooden staircase and the  spacious accommodation is on the first floor. There is  solid oak joinery and flooring  throughout all finished  to an extremely high standard.

There  is a large living area with sofas, coffee table, TV with  DVD player, music system and a selection of games,  jigsaws and local tourist information.
At  one end, there is a dining area and fitted kitchenette  equipped with integrated dishwasher, fridge with freezer  section, combination oven, grill and microwave  and ceramic hob.
Steps  down lead to the bedroom suite with a king sized bed, shower room with W.C. and basin and dressing  area with a sturdy chair bed (2’8” x 6’2”) and a short single bed  (2'6" x 5'3").  A  cot and high chair can be provided if required at no charge.  A  separate utility room downstairs has a washing machine,  tumble dryer, iron, ironing board and additional WC.  There is also space for well behaved dogs, bicycles and the like. Wifi throughout.

Guests  will have exclusive use of two areas of garden. One is a  patio area immediately adjacent to The Granary with  garden furniture and a beautiful view of the valley.

The  other is the Mandarin Garden (so named because a pair of  mandarin duck occasionally visit) which is a fenced area  including one of the two ponds and is quite private.  This garden is reached via a footpath from The Granary  which is screened from the rest of the garden at  Greenwoods Farm. The portable barbecue can, of course,  be used in either of these two garden areas.

You will find a vast network of public footpaths (one is  immediately adjacent) for walking and country lanes for  cycling. Starting from The Granary, it is possible to  walk for miles through ancient woodland and forestry  without using a public road. In addition, the Cuckoo  Trail is a disused railway line which has been opened  locally and runs for several miles of open walking,  cycling and horseriding.Graham has been paragliding in the area since 1993 and will put you in touch with local instructors for hang  gliding and paragliding if required and impart local  knowledge of the flying sites for those more  experienced.  

The garden is a haven for wildlife with, for example,  coal tits, willow tits, nuthatches, woodpeckers and  finches making regular appearances.  The resident  nightingale may also entertain you in the evening.  A  flock of redwings numbering hundreds often arrive and numerous pied wagtails live on  the lawns.   Roe and fallow deer are abundant in the  valley surrounding us.  We have three particular herds  of deer that commonly visit and interested visitors will  recognise them by the end of the week! Both Graham and Sarah ride and lessons and hacks can be  arranged nearby.  At certain times of the year it may be  possible to bring your horse with you on holiday to  Greenwood Granary.  Please enquire. 

Open houses and gardens in the vicinity include  Batemans, Michelham Priory and Hever, as well as  Sissinghurst Castle. Bodiam Castle is a fascinating ruin  enjoyed by adults and children alike. 

Groombridge Place Enchanted Forest and Garden,  Knockhatch Adventure Park with its ski and snowboard  centre and  Drusillas Zoo are all within easy reach with  each capable of providing a full day’s entertainment  for all the family

Having  said all that, our guests may well prefer to stay put  and enjoy Greenwood Granary in its beautiful setting  surrounded by nature.

However, if you have young children, please be aware  that the garden has two fenced ponds and an electric  fence on one perimeter.
