It should be true that good design, especially in a home, comes from the heart. The Tack Barn says so. The creativity of work here is both generous and accessible, you can feel it. Blending the woods, the water, the quiet harmony of growing flowers, grazing animals and glass, print, steel and technology, has been done with warmth and wisdom.
Spending just a brief time here has been a delight. Corina's welcome and her attention to practical details underpins the spirit of the place. Thank you.

I've stayed at the Tack Barn perhaps a dozen times, for both work and pleasure. When I'm not there, I dream of it almost daily: the view across the small lake/large pond, the help-yourself vegetable garden in summer (arthichokes! kale! asparagus!); the wood burner and naked trees in winter. The hosts are charm personified and the location hard to beat. Close to Lewes and Glyndebourne, closer still to ancient forests. I'd say go as soon as you can, but leave some nights spare for me.

Stayed here for our 1st anniversary and it could not have been a more perfect stay. The Tack Barn is absolutely gorgeous and Corina and Dominic are fantastic hosts. Cannot recommend this stay highly enough.

Thank you for making such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay - the perfect honeymoon location and a real romantic escape after the busyness of the wedding. We loved eating outside and then cooking marshmallows on the fire! Our highlight was driving to Birling Gap to watch the sunrise with bacon butties. We will most certainly be coming back.

I must admit I got a bit misty-eyed pulling out of the Tack Barn driveway as I wanted to stay there forever. This place is just magical (without being too clinical or perfect). We spent one of our best holidays ever here in East Sussex and Corina's place certainly added to our joy (we spotted an owl, a fox and lots of frolicking squirrels). The Tack Barn is located in some beautiful grounds and tastefully decorated. A true home from home. Corina is the perfect host, with lots of tips on what to do. She even invited us to take whatever we liked from their kitchen garden. Really lovely. We absolutely recommend this place!

The Tack Barn is absolutely delightful. We've just left after the most relaxing week staying at Corina's beautiful property. It's in a lovely spot, just in front of a lake and set on a wider property which is great for walking. The barn itself is finished to a very high standard, tastefully decorated and furnished. We loved exploring the surrounding area and many walks and charming villages and pubs. Corina was the perfect host, great to deal with to organise the stay and very friendly and helpful during the week. Would definitely stay again and will be recommending to others!

This was exactly what I needed. Safe, warm, calm, restful, my voice dropped a tone by the end of the first evening. Welcoming hosts, fantastic welcoming breakfast basket, lots of options of where to eat, lovely kitchen to cook in, great local produce. I'd rather have a few days here than a week in Spain if rest and recoup is what you are looking for.

We stayed for a long weekend during our visit to the area for the Lewes Bonfire Celebrations.
The barn was furnished beautifully, comfortable, clean, luxurious and cosy. We loved the wood burner, pond and garden area with the tree house and patio. During our stay we enjoyed a short stroll around the grounds to see the pigs and chickens. Corina was the perfect host and gave us some great tips on how to best enjoy the bonfire celebrations and recommended a few local spots to visit which we really enjoyed. Our little welcome hamper was a lovely touch with delicious local produce and even some sparklers. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it.
