Discover the breath-taking natural beauty of the South Downs, from Brooks Lodge at Chapel Barn. The Lodge is an architect and interior designed, contemporary extension attached to an 18th century flint barn on the outskirts of Piddinghoe village. It is situated on a private farm estate and has beautiful, rural views.

The River Ouse is a stone's throw away and it meanders its way up the river valley towards the historic county town of Lewes about five miles away. Brooks Lodge was completed in February 2012. The property won a Sussex Heritage Award in 2013 due to its well executed and interesting contemporary extension to the original flint barn.

More recently in 2018, 'Quality in Tourism' awarded the property a Five Star Gold Award. The use of sympathetic but modern materials produced an extraordinary dwelling, allowing the rural landscape to be visible from all the large windows. It has been designed to the utmost ecological requirements and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The lodge sits comfortably in the rural landscape due to the use of the traditional materials of flint, slate and bricks.The property, whilst attached to the main dwelling, has its own private entrance and courtyard garden. Guests have mentioned that the property has an air of calm.

Every room is generously proportioned with relaxing, elegant furniture. The master bedroom has french doors which open onto its own small deck with table and chairs. The deck overlooks the adjoining barn with its courtyard garden and pond.

On the first floor the kitchen/dining room has large folding, sliding doors which opens the side of the house onto a large deck and upper lawn.
