Spring Farm is a perfect escape for large families or groups of friends who want space to spread out and relax. With room for up to twelve people in six bedrooms, it can accommodate all of your nearest and dearest, setting the scene for a memorable stay in the East Sussex countryside. Whether you want a summer holiday, family or friends reunion with tennis, swimming and barbecues, or want to provide your kids with the sort of Christmas-with-all-the-cousins that you enjoyed as a child, Spring Farm will give you a warm welcome.
The house is in a scenic location less than a mile from the centre of Waldron village where you will find a fantastic pub, the Star Inn, serving regional ales and delicious food using local ingredients. Waldron also has a good village shop and tea room, and a beautiful church that has been a focal point for the community since 1195 and which enjoys some of the best views in the village. The market town of Heathfield is three miles from Spring Farm. It only takes around five minutes to drive, however the walk or cycle is worth the uphill climb for the fantastic views of the countryside. Besides, what comes up must come down, and after you have caught your breath and done a little shopping, the return journey is mainly downhill.
With its tennis court, indoor pool, snooker room and nine-acres of land, you could be perfectly happy spending most of your time at Spring Farm. However, should you decide to venture out to sightsee then you are spoiled for choice. Brighton, Eastbourne, and Hastings give plenty of variety for a day at the beach, while the South Downs National Park and Ashdown Forest have endless opportunities for walks and bike rides to suit every ability. Royal Tunbridge Wells has a great mix of history and shops, while the county town of Lewes puts the fun back into shopping with its medieval streets housing independent boutiques, galleries and antique shops, along with plenty of cafes and restaurants to refuel. Glyndebourne, Battle and Battle Abbey, Sissinghurst and Bodiam Castle are also nearby.
A fantastic holiday is as much about the place you stay as well as the people you are with and the sights you can see. Spring Farm is a beautiful home-from-home where you can take time to catch up with the people you enjoy spending time with.

To call Spring Farm "spacious" is doing it a disservice, as this property is enormous both inside and out. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, an indoor swimming pool, games room and nine acres mean there is more than enough room for a raft of fun activities whether that means snoozing on the sofa in front of the open fire after a Sunday lunch or settling family rivalries in a fiercely contested game of croquet.
Outside: A large paved patio area leads off both the dining room and the conservatory. It has several sun loungers and benches, and is a great place to relax on sunny days. Steps lead down to a flat lawn area, perfect for playing football and croquet. This area also has a trampoline and swing. There are three fields and woodland to explore, as well as a fenced-off pond. An all-weather tennis court provides hours of fun all year round. Off-street parking.
