Sedlescombe in East Sussex Village Guide

Tithe Barn Tearooms

Does anyone remember the Tithe Barn Tearoom in the village in the 1960’s. I stayed there as a child with my godfather David Prosser and his family. There was also a blacksmith in the village. I am hoping to visit Sedlescombe in September whilst on holiday in the area and would love to have some information particularly about what happened to the tearooms as I can’t find any mention of them online anymore. Many thanks.

    Hello Geraldine,

    Re Tithe Barn tearooms-my partner and I-Joan Cocks & Eileen Hoskin were the proud owners of Tithe Barn from 1965-1970. We enjoyed very happy times and made many friends with our visitors, who came from miles around as our reputation grew. We sold it as a tea room, but sadly it is now a private dwelling.
    I hope you enjoyed your visit to Sedlescombe-a most beautiful village. The Queen’s Head, Holmes House, were our favourite places.

    Your query brought back many happy memories.

    Kind regards,

    Joan Cocks
