About The Farmhouse at Lydhurst

"Owned and brought to life by the personal touches and subtle presence of the nearby situated Bailie's - both kind and helpful, but not in any way intrusive - the restoration of a 16th Century Farmhouse to its full glory in an 'easy English' style has been executed in a way that the pair should be proud of." - Samata Home (June, 2018).

Take your imagination back 500 years and this perfect example of a traditional English farmhouse was just beginning to take shape! Lovingly restored with a designers' careful eye, the exposed beams, inglenook fireplace and curved walls bring its heritage to life and allow you to appreciate the history of this classic farmhouse.

Downstairs offers a spacious kitchen with breakfast table, and a large sitting room leading through to a lovely dining room - a great space to gather together to enjoy a relaxed meal over a glass of wine. Upstairs provides four well-proportioned bedrooms and 2 shared bathrooms - one with a roll-top bath. Even when bringing the kids, parents can enjoy a well-deserved soak in the bubbles!

There is a large lawned garden enclosed by split rail fences and hedging for the children and dogs to explore outside. This Grade II listed self-catering farmhouse is also surrounded by rolling pastures, woodland in the High Weald AONB, an idyllic preserve of beautiful Sussex countryside and farmland that is rare to find - and a joy to discover.

Bring a book, bring your boots, put something in the Aga to slow cook and wind back the clock to a more relaxed pace of life.
