Enjoy the peace and total seclusion offered by this charming 5-star holiday cottage which is set amidst thirty acres of lawns, streams, woodland and lakes in the High Weald of Sussex and on the borders of the South Downs National Park.
The completely renovated 19th Century, two bedroom cottage retains many of its original features including open fires and timber-clad walls while offering the highest standards of comfort you’d expect from a top-of-the-range destination.
And once here, there are any number of things to do. Rudyard Kipling’s old home, Batemans, is less than five minutes from here, and open to the public. Thirty-five minutes away is the world-famous Pantiles of Royal Tunbridge Wells where you can eat, drink and shop to your heart’s content. Thirty minutes in the opposite direction is the opera house at Glyndebourne while a sharp turn to the left will take you the site of the Battle of Hastings and the abbey built by William the Conquerer. The list goes on and on.
This is fabulous walking country. The South Downs National Park and The High Weald offer stunning views across some of the most beautiful parts of England and they are right on our doorstep. Several of the great gardens of England are close at hand, including Great Dixter, Pashley Manor and Penshurst Place, all of them less than twenty minutes drive from here. Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn is about forty five minutes away while Leeds Castle, often described as the most beautiful in England is less than an hour down the Maidstone road.
