A lovely detached character house set in 2.5 acres of beautiful grounds which backs onto a forest. Further afield is Brighton & Eastbourne and the Sussex coast. The surrounding area is full of places to visit and things to do - historic houses to see, lovely villages with traditional pubs to try, beautiful gardens such as Sheffield Park Gardens to enjoy, the Bluebell steam railway, plus excellent local golf courses and 14,000 acres of Ashdown Forest to explore. Ideal for more than one family to share, this house is beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard and has wonderful facilities for children of all ages making it a dream holiday home.
