    The house was amazing for a group of friends and our furry friend. The facilities of the pool, gym, hot tub were well used. The house is perfect for families to get together, with enough room to not be on top of each other. We went for a nice walk to the local pub, but mainly used the house and the grounds. The owners had thought of absolutely everything - there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there and the little touches of the welcome pack and dog treats were very thoughtful. Thank you for lending us your beautiful house, we would love to come back in the summer and visit again.

The property

Idyllically positioned within Ashdown Forest, a High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty rests the impressive six-bedroom, Home Farm House.

It is enveloped in scenic countryside on the outskirts of the market town of Crowborough.

Home Farm House boasts a homely interior full of character and makes for a perfect base for a trip to Sussex, either for a holiday, short break or special occasion with family & friends.

A spacious driveway greets you upon arrival, offering ample parking spaces for your guests and making loading and unloading an easy task.

Kicking off your shoes, step over the threshold and make your way inside this lovely home-from-home for the duration of your stay, making use of the handy storage space provided in the entrance hall to store your belongings away from the main living areas.

Follow the hallway through to the cosy sitting room, home to a handful of sofas gathered around a traditional inglenook fireplace, enticing you to put your feet up and unwind with a moment of peace in front of the television.

When stomachs start to rumble, make your way through to the fully equipped kitchen, where you'll find a range of appliances to assist with your catering needs, including an electric oven and hob as well as a rustic kitchen island, ideal for sharing a bottle of wine as the designated chef cooks up a culinary delight.

Set the table in the nearby dining room and gather together with your loved ones to indulge as you recount the day's adventures or escape the excitement and head through to the living/dining area, stoke up the wood burner to enjoy an intimate meal for two before snuggling up on the sofa in the snug for a movie marathon.

Completing the ground floor is the first of six bedrooms, a sumptuous double, along with a handy cloakroom, both ideal for guests with limited mobility.

Heading upstairs you'll find four additional double rooms all with built in wardrobes, with the master bedroom benefiting from access to its own en-suite bathroom, alongside a bunk room, perfect for sleepovers for the little ones, and a contemporary family bathroom.

Head outdoors and make a splash with a dip in the heated swimming pool or end the day in style with an indulgent soak amongst the bubbles in the hot tub as your furry friends stretch their legs on the large lawn.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic stroll through woodlands or a walk on Ashdown Forest.

Alternatively, you could visit the heart of Crowborough, once home to famed author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who penned Sherlock Holmes, where you will find a host of essential amenities, including a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants, high-street and independent shops.

After stopping off for a bite to eat, get your steps in with a scenic stroll through the woodland at Crowborough Country Park, hike to the summit of Bunkers Hill, making sure to keep your eyes peeled for the delightful deer en-route, or test your swing with a round at the well known Crowborough Beacon Golf Club.

Within easy reach is the charming town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, where you can immerse yourself in the fascinating local history with a visit to the Pantiles or for the children a steam train ride to High Rocks.

Maybe treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at the Royal Victoria Place, or catch the train and journey to the nearby towns and villages to explore more of the delights of Sussex and Kent.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to embark on an adventure throughout the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famed as one of England's finest landscapes, stretching over 1461 square km of wooded hills, open farmland and medieval manors.

Choose Home Farm House as the base for your next group celebration.

About the location

CROWBOROUGH

Tunbridge Wells 7 miles; Chiddingstone 10 miles; Ardingly 12 miles; Gatwick 25 miles.

Crowborough is a popular market town in East Sussex, well known as the home to many writers, actors and artists who took inspiration from the area’s beauty, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who penned the Sherlock Holmes mysteries and lived in the town for the last 23 years of his life, with his statue standing at Crowborough Cross. Tourists will also find a nod to the books with such street names criss-crossing the town as Watson Way and Sherlock Shaw as well as the Cafe Baskerville which can be found on the Broadway. The town offers a good selection of shops and eateries, plus a monthly farmers’ market provides local produce and culinary delights, whilst throughout the year Crowborough hosts a selection of quintessentially English fetes and fairs. Adjoining the edge of this market town is ancient Ashdown Forest, set in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Originally a Norman hunting ground, the forestland offers a rich heritage and was used by the monarchy and nobility until Tudor times, including Henry VIII who kept a hunting lodge at Bolebroke Castle and Anne Boleyn at nearby Hever Castle. Covering over 9 square miles, the now tranquil open heathland offers one of the largest public access spaces in South East England. Ashdown Forest is a famous beauty spot and has been claimed as the setting for the Hundred Acre Wood in the Winnie the Pooh stories written by A. A. Milne, who lived on its northern edge and would often take his son, Christopher Robin, walking amongst the woodland. With streams, ponds, woods and grazing commonland, this area is rich in wildlife, which is nationally protected. For those that adore the countryside, this part of Sussex is sure to delight and can be explored season by season with its ever-changing scenery.
