About Orchard House

Introduction

"In a quiet corner of old Sussex with views over the South Downs the enchanting Orchard House lies just east of the ancient Ashdown Forest on the southern edge of the Weald.\nThrough a large central entrance hall the glorious open plan kitchen dining and snug room has been recently extended and renovated to offer an impressively large convivial space for entertaining and celebrating. Three sets of French doors open onto two patios the gardens and a small orchard beyond a nod to its past as a former fruit farm drawing you out to admire the views across paddocks and the peaceful Sussex countryside surrounding you.\nThe drawing room is a refined graceful space to gather for a civilised aperitif or game of bridge on the card table. Next door the relaxed and inviting sitting room offers a roaring log burner deep comfortable sofas and a large TV projector for a more informal evening of board games and films - or a perfect room to allow the kids a social space of their own.\nUpstairs five elegant bedrooms await. The vast and irresistible master looks out on two sides over the gardens offering a double-end bath and separate shower in its en-suite. There are a further two en-suite bedrooms plus a king size double and a twin sharing a bright pretty bathroom with a free standing bath and walk-in shower.\nWith Crowborough Tunbridge Wells and Lewes all within a few miles there are so many treasures to discover and enjoy locally an easy journey to return to your house in the country. There are also several yoga and pilates teachers nearby for smalls groups looking for a retreat. For larger groups of up to 17 people Orchard House can be booked together with the adjacent Medley’s Barn and The Tea Hut. Close to the house there is also a tennis court shared with the other properties."

    What makes this area so special

    There are plenty of outdoor pursuits such as golf, horse-riding and clay pigeon shooting locally. The Ashdown Forest (home of Winnie the Pooh) begins less than 2 miles away, with its fabulous heathland views, woodland walks and the quaint villages of Forest Row and Hartfield. Take a stroll into High Hurstwood village just down the road, and stop in for a drink at the popular country inn ’The Hurstwood’ less than a mile away. For a more bustling and vibrant day out you can explore the shopping, restaurants and cafe culture of Crowborough and Tunbridge Wells. Also close by are Hever and Chiddingstone Castles, Groombridge Place, Penshurst Place and Chartwell - home of Winston Churchill. For those who love opera, Glyndebourne is a short drive. Crowborough is just 10 minutes away, Tunbridge Wells 20 minutes, and the pretty market town of Lewes is well worth a visit 12 miles south. Brighton is also within an hour’s reach.
