Situated on the owner’s 44-acre smallholding, these two adjoining, converted farm buildings (refs 28697 and 28698) offer a rural holiday base with glorious views and opportunities to see native wildlife. There is direct access to footpaths and bridleways; cycle or walk the Cuckoo Trail, which is 14 miles of surfaced pathway through the Sussex countryside, via Horam, Hailsham and Polegate to Eastbourne Park. The properties are not far from the Wealden market town of Heathfield, where visitors may be able to see or hear the cuckoo at the fair in April, which signifies spring. Visit the Ashdown Forest, one of the largest, free public access spaces in the south east and an area of outstanding natural beauty, known the world over as the home of Winnie the Pooh! Visit the home of Rudyard Kipling, Batemans at Burwash or climb the towers of one of the most evocative castles in England, the moated Bodiam, with its stunning views across the Rother Valley. Michelham Priory and Gardens, Sheffield Park Gardens and the Bluebell Railway make for good days out. Historic Battle and Abbey is 12½ miles, the fishing town of Hastings is 16 miles and Eastbourne is 18 miles. Guests can enjoy coarse fishing on the farm, which is available by arrangement with the owners. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
