Occupying a wonderful countryside setting, surrounded by landscaped gardens and its own land of over 5 acres, yet well placed to enjoy the benefits of the mainline station at Etchingham and access to the A21 and its links to the motorway networks.

Internally the property retains many original features including inglenook fireplaces, leaded windows and exposed timbers whilst retaining a sense of light and good ceiling height to the majority of rooms.
