Four luxury cottages in the breathtaking natural beauty of the South Downs


Situated on a gorgeous, 18th-century Grade II listed farmstead, Mill Laine Barns comprises of four luxury holiday cottages, sleeping 2-6 guests in Sussex. The stunning cottages are positioned beautifully in an accessible, yet secluded and picturesque valley on the village of Offham, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the historical site of the Battle of Lewes. 

Each barn is unique with original features such as exposed oak beams and washing coppers which have been preserved. Every cottage is equipped to a very high standard, including wool carpets, quarry tiles, craftsman made wooden furniture, wood burning stoves with plentiful free log supply, fully inclusive gas central heating, towels and linen, Wi-Fi, televisions, DVDs, free-sat, radio/CD players and washing machines. There is a tumble drier in the laundry as well. The three largest cottages have dishwashers.

The two largest cottages, the Granary and Barn - both 5* - each sleep six people, the Stable and Dairy - both 4 stars, sleep four and two people respectively. Extra cots are available for small children.

The holiday cottages are right on the South Downs AONB, with fantastic views for miles. There are lovely walks nearby where a variety of wildflowers can be found. The historic county town of Lewes, with its wide range of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, is just 5 minutes away. The farmers market in the precinct takes place twice a month and is not to be missed!

Three excellent pubs are within a stone's throw of the cottages. The nearest is The Blacksmiths Arms (just 150 yards away), a family and pet-friendly pub, where you can indulge in a delicious meal with great hospitality, before taking a short stroll back to your cottage to cosy up in front of the real fire.

The cosmopolitan Brighton and London-Victoria is one hour by train, Gatwick is 35 miles, and there are good public transport links locally. We are within easy reach of many popular amenities such as; the Royal Pavilion and Palace Pier, theatres and amusements for all walks of life at Brighton, Anne of Cleves House and the castle in Lewes, close by the Lavender Line and Bluebell Steam Railways, Drusillas Zoo at Alfriston, The South Down Way and Ouse Valley Way and Meridian walk, Stanmer Park, for equine events, Hickstead, Plumpton Racecourse and Fontwell or Goodwood, the Bloomsbury Trail, Glyndebourne Opera House, a huge selection of gardens and stately houses, including Nymans, Leonardslee, Batemans, Sheffield Park, Wakehurst Place and the Millennium Seed Bank, Firle Place and Glynde Place among many others. a little further afield is Royal Tonbridge Wells, Portsmouth is just over an hour away, Newhaven has ferries to Dieppe in France, Goodwood racing (equine or motor) is not far. Eastbourne is no more than a short trip.

Lastly don't forget to go down to the sea, Seaford beach which is very near the famous 'Seven Sisters' white cliffs and is only about a 20 min drive from Mill Laine Barns. 

Enjoy a warm welcome and the flexibility and comfort of a self-catering holiday cottage located near to every amenity, places of interest, attractions, stunning walks on the South Downs Way and Ouse Valley Way and coastal beaches.

Meet the owner

Justin Harmer

Susan and Justin Harmer will give you a warm welcome to Mill Laine Barns. We are the fifth generation to farm at Mill Laine and Offham Farms, carrying on the family traditions with prize winning Sussex Cattle and Southdown Sheep. The farm has diversified with the holiday cottages and a thriving Farm Shop that sells outstanding produce from the farm. The sixth generation is at university and college, training to farm and take over the business. There is even a member of the seventh generation just arrived. The holiday cottage complex was the worthy winner of the Rural Parliamentary Awards in 2006 for the 'best woman in farming' section. The cottages also won the Lewes District Awards for the best small business in 2014.
