"We celebrated a pre-Christmas family get together with those who will be in Australia for the 25th and 26th. We also celebrated a 65th birthday in your fantastic house! All the family loved the house and its gardens, and wished it was theirs! We hope to return again soon."

December 2016 - Charlie, Sam, Mabel, Alice, Lyn, Mike, Vera, Fran and Tom

"The 14 of us had a wonderful weekend in your beautiful home. The house is great for feeling spacious, and we were not all on top of each other- but yet cosy and homely. The dogs had the weekend of their lives exploring the garden and woods, and my 11 month old son, toddling around in your corridors! Thank you so much for a very special weekend."

November 2016 - The Marshalls, Early's & Wheatleys.

"The 12 of us had a wonderful week! With much luck the weather has been wonderful. We made full use of the wonderful pool and beautiful gardens."

September 2016 - Scholefield Family

What makes this area
So special...

Crowhurst is a quintessential English village 5 miles mid-way between the popular coastal town of Hastings and historic Battle to the north. With plenty to do on the doorstep, from a vineyard tour at Sedlescombe Estate only a 14 minute drive away to a round of golf or dinner at the local club, there is enough to entertain a weekend away or a maybe a longer stay in the area.
