For our latest Piglet Stays we’re going to transport you to the beautiful rolling hills of East Sussex where you’ll find The Grain Store: a light-filled converted barn located a short distance from the historic town of Lewes and a stone’s throw away from Brighton. Accommodating up to six people, The Grain Store is the perfect place to wind down for a couple of days while taking in the stunning scenery and enjoying everything the barn and the surrounding area has to offer.
The open plan living area and numerous outdoor spaces make The Grain Store well suited for entertaining and the ideal spot for a weekend trip with a group of friends or for reuniting with family. With floor to ceiling south-facing windows overlooking the South Downs National Park, it’s very easy to spend hours taking in the view while lounging on the sofa with a glass of wine, or cooking up a storm in the modern farmhouse style, shaker kitchen.
The outdoor spaces are a real selling point of The Grain Store, so while it is pretty impossible to predict good weather here in the UK, a balmy summer’s evening is where this place will really come into its own. Start with sundowners on the balcony, followed by a BBQ in the courtyard and end the evening with a dip in the hot tub, complete with surrounding fairy lights.

If you are able to peel yourself away from the barn for the day, the local area has lots to offer for any kind of traveller. The quintessentially British town of Lewes is only a ten minute drive away and perfect for some window shopping or spending the afternoon in a rural pub garden. If you’re looking to soak up the natural beauty of the surrounding hills, there are a number of the hiking trails and National Trust pathways in the immediate vicinity, with wild swimming spots and places to horse ride also on your doorstep. After a long day spent exploring the great outdoors, you’ll be pleased to know you can crash in super soft Piglet in Bed linen bedding at The Grain Store, which features a number of our colourful, nature-inspired linen sheets throughout.
