The Almond Barn is a 25 year old, fine furniture shop in Five Ashes near Mayfield, specialising in unique wooden furniture and pottery. The barn is also the workshop and home of award winning furniture designer, Charles Thomson who uses local Sussex hardwoods to make his creations by hand.
There are ready-made pieces available from the showroom or, if there is something specific you need, Charles welcomes enquiries regarding personal commissions. His wife Yolande Beer specialises in Japanese inspired pottery, which you can also purchase on-site.
We want to make it easy to find new and interesting places to visit. We research, visit and photograph every place ourselves and use our website, app and books to help inspire people to discover new things.
Lovely guide to Sussex. Great informative book of my local area and beyond with nice pictures and layout. Has reminded me what a great county Sussex is and not just in my area of Brighton & Hove. We'll be visiting many of the new shops, restaurants and areas in the coming months for sure!
