Vines Cross Farm is located on the edge of the rural hamlet of Vines Cross, which is in the heart of the East Sussex countryside and lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The market town of Heathfield is 2.5 miles away.
Our two holiday Lodges enjoy a peaceful setting and provide tastefully furnished, luxury accommodation with wood burning stove, super-king double beds (or twins if you prefer), en suite shower rooms with walk in shower, 32” HDTV with freeview, free WiFi and outside a private decked area with views of the meadow and surrounding countryside. We carry out our own cleaning and maintenance and pride ourselves on our very high standards.
Vines Cross Farm is an ideal base for a peaceful, rural holiday with footpaths from the door, including a great Geocaching route, the Cuckoo Trail (old railway line) just a mile away for cycling or walking and many National Trust properties locally.
If, on the other hand, you like a spot of serious shopping then you are only 18 miles from the spa town of Tunbridge Wells.
The beaches at Eastbourne or Pevensey Bay are 15 miles away and London can be reached from Stonegate Station (8 miles). There really is something for everyone!

The lodge was very clean, comfortable and well equipped
This was an ideal base for a short break - to visit the O2 and the surrounding countryside - including Battle and Rye. Yvonne and Antony were very welcoming and helpful - many thanks
Most pleasant and ideally situated
The lodge was all we could have asked for - the owners have thought of everything, and it was a joy to stay here! It was very comfortable, very clean and really well-equipped. All the rooms were spacious and it was like a home from home! We felt very welcome and well catered for. The lodge is situated in really pleasant surroundings within very easy reach of country walks, but also just over 10 miles to the coast and towns. It offered us the chance to either stay in the quietness of the lodge itself, or visit many historical sites or more tourist-centred places. There are lots of things for all ages to enjoy in the area, being close to Eastbourne, Brighton, Battle and Hastings.There are lots of options regarding places to eat nearby too. We really enjoyed being greeted in the mornings by alpacas grazing near to the front of the lodge, and they were also there to welcome us back in the evenings. We are pleased to recommend this property very highly.
Excellent lodge, spotlessly clean, beautiful views
We had a fantastic stay at Meadow Lodge. We received a warm welcome when we arrived which was lovely. When we got inside, the lodge was spotlessly clean and everything had been provided for right down to a fan in each bedroom for those warmer evenings and a hairdryer in each. The view from the two sets of patio doors was fantastic and it was lovely to wake up to the alpacas in the field not far away. All the appliances were easy to use and all the information was provided. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were fabulous and the privacy was great so all in all a fantastic place to visit and we certainly intend to return.
Truly Amazing in every way
An absolute little gem. Beautiful and homely accommodation all to a very high specification and such attention to detail. All you could need. Beds extremely comfortable. The Owners were so welcoming and the actual situation of the lodges and the truly gawjus animals made it a truly idyllic holiday. (If only I could have brought the alpacas home!)
Thank you so much....can't wait to return
The lodge was everything we had imagined.
It was a delight to stay in Meadow Lodge.We were greeted by Yvonne & Anthony. The lodge was immaculate and had all that we needed. It was thoughtful to provide tea, coffee, sugar & even biscuits for that first drink before we unpacked.We would certainly recommend this property.
Beautiful lodge in peaceful surroundings
We had a fantastic long weekend in Meadow Lodge, great weather and lovely peaceful surroundings. The pigs and the alpaca's kept our little one amused and the lodge itself was clean, tidy and beautifully finished. Its also a great location to explore east sussex, particularly some wonderful gardens nearby including Great Dixter, Sheffield Park and Nymans. We will be back!
