Priors Barn Summary

"If you go down in the woods today you can be sure of an enchanting surprise....Woodland View". Quiet elegance set within woodlands complete with lake, a little gurgling stream winding through the trees and stunning treetop decking offering peace and tranquility, broken only by bird song. Woodland View is on the southern fringes of the Ashdown Forest in the tiny hamlet of Underhill and surrounded by woodland.

Lots of light creates a lovely comfortable atmosphere and with the French doors open enjoy a feeling of space on those summer evenings. Or after an autumn stroll head back to the barn for hot chocolate and a cosy evening by the wood burner.

Woodland View is a perfect retreat for a couple looking for a romantic stay.
