Mulberry cottages are delighted to announce the expansion of its offices into the East Sussex region to cope with the growth of property and interest that there is in Sussex and beyond. The Mulberry girls are moving into the charming and rural village of Hartfield, near to Crowborough, where we are fortunate enough to have offices situated next to the only café in the village!
Despite its small location, Hartfield has been auspicious over the years, providing the author A.A Milne with his childhood home and the inspiration for his 100 acre wood in the nearby beautiful Ashdown forest and creating the game ‘Pooh Sticks’ from the bridge separating the farm from the town which can still be crossed today. Hartfield was also the home of Rolling Stone guitarist Brian Jones until his death in 1969.
Historically, Hartfield is also important as the nearby Bolebroke Castle was visited often by King Henry VIII where he used to hunt boar in the Ashdown Forest. It is also thought that he wooed Anne Boleyn from here.
We are very grateful to CLM (Complete Land Management) for opening its doors to us and giving up some of their space to house some loud women!
