Take a look inside this converted hayloft in Sussex

10 images

This historic period cottage, built in 1840, was originally a hayloft and stable for a local coaching inn in East Sussex. It was converted around 75 years ago into a residential house and is now home to the founder of an artisan food company, her husband, a transport manager, their dog and two cats. It was already a two-bedroom home with courtyard garden, but the new owners have refurbished an additional neglected outbuilding, re-designed the kitchen as well as injected personality throughout with antiques and colourful accessories.
