This stunning, 16th-century, detached beamed farmhouse has been lovingly restored and stylishly decorated reflecting the eye of an interior designer. It nestles peacefully within the owners’ country estate in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The estate is farmed and the cottage is surrounded by cattle and sheep. The cottage enjoys its own enclosed lawned garden with a terrace and furniture, perfect for breakfast, a summers barbecue with friends and family, or to just relax and observe the wildlife.
Walk up to the village pub or take one of the footpaths through beautiful countryside and woodland, particularly delightful in the spring when the intoxicating smell of bluebells will feast your senses. For days out, visit Wakehurst Place, the country estate of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, Nymans, one of the National Trust premier gardens with glorious views stretching out across the Sussex Weald, High Beeches or a working corn mill at Clayton.
If the sun is shining, head to the beach at Brighton and don’t miss the fascinating shops in The Lanes. Visit the race track or paddocks for a flutter at Goodwood, or take a picnic to Glyndebourne.
