The village of Hartfield is on the edge of the Ashdown Forest and is a perfect base for walking and exploring the surrounding countryside. Two traditional English pubs are a short stroll away from this self catering holiday accommodation while the village shop is on hand for all daily necessities. Both pubs have a good selection of wholesome food at lunch and in the evening.
The Red House is a generously proportioned double fronted property in an enviable location within this pretty Sussex village yet within a short drive from historical Royal Tunbridge Wells.The house offers a charming grand welcome, with plenty of space for a number of cars on the gravelled driveway. The front door leads to an imposing deep red hallway with original wood floors and occasional furniture and rugs.
The Red House is discretely nestled behind a high hedge with a sweeping gravel drive offering a warm welcome as you approach the impressive front door. The private gardens and terraces, including a fantastic barbeque area and outdoor heated pool make this the perfect place for you and your family or friends to base your stay in the Sussex countryside.
Upon entering the charming hallway of this Sussex self-catering accommodation, you can immediately appreciate the scale and warmth of this pretty Victorian home. The three light and airy reception rooms are comfortable and spacious, with a relaxed atmosphere. Choose from a sunny sitting room overlooking the barbeque and pool area, the music room and library, complete with baby grand piano or the traditional drawing room with plenty of sofas to relax for the evening. The huge kitchen dining room, with its homely Aga, dark granite work-surfaces and long oak dining table provides the perfect environment to cook up a feast for family and friends. Upstairs, the Master bedroom has a beautiful oak panelled bathroom with imposing Romanesque bust while the further four large bedrooms share two family bathrooms.
Parking is secure inside the house gates and the traditional sussex oak barn style car port provides protection for the cars from the elements. The local shops and pubs are within walking distance, and next door to the house is a large playing field recreational area where the local cricket team plays in the summer. There is also a very well equipped playground for the younger children. Within five minutes walking is the Forest Way, an ex railway line, now a National Park, which is ideal for walking, running or cycling.

There is much to see and do in this lovely part of Sussex. Hartfield is a wonderful village, famous for the place where A. A. Milne wrote Winnie the Pooh. You and your own Christopher Robin can explore the Enchanted Place, throw sticks from the Poohsticks Bridge or take a cream tea (with plenty of honey) at Piglet's tearooms. There is even a Winnie the Pooh shop in the village. The spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is only 15 minutes away with a huge array of shops and great places to eat out.
If you fancy a flutter, Plumpton races are within a couple of miles and nearby Lewes has a medieval castle on a hill top waiting for you to explore while admiring the views across this pretty and historic town.
For opera lovers, Glyndebourne is only half an hour away and a wonderful way to enjoy opera in a fabulous setting.
The cosmopolitan city of Brighton is a 35 minute drive away, where you will find an eclectic mix of individual shops and boutique, trendy bars and numerous restaurants, not forgetting the famous pier with traditional funfair rides and fish and chip shops.
The centre of London is a short hour's train journey from either Tunbridge Wells or East Grinstead.
For families, both the Bluebell steam Railway (25 mins) and Drusilla's zoo (40 mins) offer a really special day out for all.
There are many truly English villages with picturesque houses and traditional English pubs to explore - this is England at its best and we don't think you will be disappointed!.

The house was beautiful and very welcoming for new year-it was lovely to have a christmas tree and fairy lights. The extra personal touches such as cream, bath oils etc. in the bathrooms made it particularly 'luxurious'!. Also, welcoming gifts from owners unexpected and greatly appreciated. Also, great to have spices, pickles etc. left in the cupboard. We all had a great time. Not a cheap property obviously, but worth the price.

What a lovely home you have. Thank you so much for the extra touches which made our welcome and stay very special. Our guests from Denmark have had a fantastic time and the children have spent the mornings playing games in the pool. The wedding was marvelous but staying at The Red House with all our family made the whole weekend even better.

A beautiful house, we had a lovely happy time this weekend, the house felt warm and inviting so our murder mystery family gathering went really well, all dressed up and plenty of room for all. Thank you.
Hultquist - June 2012
Everything at the Red House was up to our expectations.
It was extremely comfortable and contained every possible item required for a happy family get-together.
What a wonderful place for a quiet holiday in the middle of a beautiful little village! Leslie was a great host and Mulberry Cottages have done a great job too. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool, the playground which is next to the house and the adults loved it too. The house was clean, fully equipped, with an excellent aga in the kitchen, a bbq, broadband, big cable tv, another tv to play video games or/and watch films... What else can you expect? Our kids are asking us when we are going to come back to the Red House... Hope we can do it another year. Thanks!!!!
