The Little Barn

The Little Barn is clad in traditional white weatherboard. The barn which in total has a footprint of 68m2 has an open plan central space with a wonderful vaulted ceiling with a sitting area around the wood fired stove, with a HD TV, Blu-ray DVD player, stereo and wireless broadband. The two bedrooms are accessed off this central space. One bedroom has a King Sized double bed with organic mattress and ensuite bathroom with a shower. The other bedroom has two single beds with organic mattresses which we can zip together to form a Super King double bed, and a bathroom with a bath and shower combined.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook some good meals (and what isn’t there we will have so just shout!), dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine.

You’ll be welcomed by homemade cake, cooked with organic ingredients of course, and a number of hints and tips about the surroundings to help kick start your holiday in this wonderful area on the south coast.

About the property

Gorgeous converted barns

The three barns are at Stone Cum Ebony, a secluded hamlet between Rye and Tenterden. Two barns sleep four and one barn sleep six and were converted in 2013. Restoring the barns we have aimed for a light, informal and relaxing approach. The style is a mix of modern and old, flooring is oak, coir and painted floors, grey, blues and naturals. The barns, which are heated by our wood chip boiler and use 100% renewable electricity, are part of the Grade II listed farmyard and has amazing views. Each barn has a wood fired stove, stereo, HD TV and wifi. We're in the middle of the countryside here and the views are spectacular, yet its only six miles to Rye or Tenterden, two lovely small towns. Our web site is Go to the holiday cottages tab to look at further photos and to book.

About Kristin Syltevik

We moved to Odiam Farm in 2012 and love it here. We live on the farm - we are farmers and also have a vineyard.

Kristin Syltevik purchased this barn in 2012

Why Kristin Syltevik chose Tenterden

Odiam Farm is on the Isle of Oxney - it is a land locked island which was previously surrounded by the river Rather and the estuary. It is as a result quite remote - while still only six miles from Rye and Tenterden, two gorgeous small towns.

What makes this barn unique

The holiday cottages are a great base for exploring. Visit our vineyard, explore some incredible landscapes, the beach, pretty towns and fantastic food and drink. If you have a moment to stay in we have a new tennis court, a play room with table tennis and more, or sit in the sun and enjoy the view.

A delightful place to stay, and met all our requirements we were impressed with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely, comfortable property and we instantly felt relaxed. The area is full of interesting places to visit so the cottage is ideally located for visiting Rye, Dungeness and is course shopping in Tenterton! The cottage had all we needed to make our stay perfect. Even enjoyed a game of table tennis!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Little Barn. It has been very tastefully and skillfully renovated, I would say it has a much nicer feel than the pictures suggest, we were very pleased when we opened the door. A nice fire for the cold evening, somewhere to store the bikes, a nearby pub (The Ferry Inn) serving good food and not too far from Rye or Tenterden. Very peaceful stay, would return again. Almost forgot to mention, the owner supplied some fresh local apple juice and the best homemade brownie I've ever tasted - my partner likes to bake and she was very jealous that her brownies were not as good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us Colin. It was great to hear that you had a good time and loved the barn. I will let Michelle, who looks after the barns so well, know that you loved her brownies! Very much hope to have you back here again. Kristin

A perfect break

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well kept property in peaceful setting. House had everything we needed. Easy access to many places of interest and attractive villages. Host very kind and helpful. Replaced a lightbulb during our stay to make things just right. Have gone to a lot of effort to make a very pleasant and comfortable holiday let.

Owner's Response: Thanks for lovely comments Rachel. It was great to have you and your family here for Christmas. Really good to hear your comments on The Little Barn - we have as you say tried hard to make it a place you can relax and get away from it all. Thanks again! Kristin

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

This an amazing location and the accommodation modern, clean and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the Brownies and apple juice supplied by Kristin. If you need anything, all you need to do is ask. 15 mins. to Tenterden along narrow country lanes. Good location to visit many places. Ferry Inn has great food as do restaurants in town. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Special interest holidays:

Please visit our vineyard and winery for tastings and a tour.


The barns are nine miles from Camber Sands, a very large sandy beach with sand dunes stretching from East Sussex into Kent.


The barns are 70 miles from Gatwick (about 1.5 hours drive) and 95 miles from Heathrow (about 2.5 hours drive). The Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone is 38 miles away (60 minutes drive). The barns are very much in the middle of the countryside so a car is essential.


You can walk to the village of Stone. Stone has two pubs and a lovely old church. The two small towns of Tenterden and Rye are very close -- each a six mile (14 minutes) drive away.
