About the property


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!

Vines Cross Farm Lodges - Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

January 2018 - We were greeted by Yvonne and Anthony (the owners).

The lodge was meticulously clean. Everything had been thought of to have a very welcome break. We found the beds to be of a very high quality coupled with no light pollution at night meant we were able to sleep well.

A very peaceful location with a very pleasant outlook over the field with Alpacas grazing.

Breathing space...

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 5 days in East Sussex with Meadow Lodge as our base. East Sussex offered many delights in terms of walks, coastal and rural landscapes, wonderful places to visit. Meadow Lodge was a perfect 'home' to begin and end each day - comfortable, thoughtfully presented throughout and to a very high standard - a place to relax and find some peaceful moments. The weather was mostly good so sitting outside watching the alpacas and taking in the lovely views was just what we needed - thank you Yvonne and Anthony!

Lovely accommodation, well thought out, in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful & peaceful location with well thought out, well equipped and comfortable accommodation in excellent condition. Walks from the door as well as numerous places to visit within a short drive and a bevy of excellent pubs within spitting distance.

The owners , Eve & Anthony, were on site and were charming yet inconspicuous hosts.

The perfect getaway.
