The Farmhouse is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and sits within a small farm surrounded by fields and woodlands. Heavily beamed throughout and preserving the innate character of this lovely old building, this property provides spacious and very comfortable accommodation for eight guests. Having the wonderful benefit of 2 separate sitting areas with glorious inglenook fireplaces, the Farmhouse is the perfect place to stay for family holidays or to share with friends. The ground floor is well proportioned with a large family sized kitchen, a dining hall and 2 sitting rooms.  There is also a study and 2 shower rooms.  On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a single room with another single room in the attic eaves.

Out and About.
The surrounding countryside and woodlands are perfect for nature lovers and provide wonderful walks and there is a small stream running behind the property. The pretty medieval town of Mayfield is close by with some lovely high street shops and a great pub.A short drive is the ancient ruins at Battle Abbey and the 1066 battlefields, slightly further afield is Sheffield Park Gardens and Bodiam Castle. For younger ones visit Drusillas Park at Alfriston, the Bluebell Railway and Go Ape and fantastic off road biking at Bedgebury Pinetum. For more extensive shopping and dining experiences a visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells is a must as it offers great restaurants and a range of independent shops.


Just returned from a fantastic week at The Farmhouse. The property was beautiful, full of rustic charm. A great layout for our group of six to have our own time in separate living rooms, but also great family meals and game nights around the huge dining table in the kitchen. Absolutely every utensil you could ever need in the kitchen. All bathrooms and w.cs, in fact the whole house, was immaculately clean. Even dog bowls, biscuits, poop bags and a towel for our dog were there. So peaceful and loved watching the squirrels, woodpeckers, blue tits and so many other birds eating from the feeder, which, by the way, was filled from a jug of peanuts provided at the property. All beds really comfortable. Surrounding grounds were gorgeous with horses in the field. Garden large and secluded however maybe a couple more outside chairs would've been nice. Location was perfect for getting around, supermarket only 15 mins away. Would love to come back again. All home feeling so relaxed and happy. Thank you!!!

Mrs H,

This was a beautiful cottage in peaceful surroundings. We were made very welcome with some provisions. Would love to visit again
