Location

East Sussex, England, United Kingdom

Close to Lewes and Brighton with a multitude of restaurants and pubs. Wivelsfield has a church, pub, petrol station and village shop/ post office. Haywards Heath is just 3 miles away with supermarkets, chemists and many high street shops. There is also a hospital with A and E.
The farm buildings have mainly been converted into offices so during the week it is quite busy in office hours. Very quiet in the evenings and weekends. The Old Calving Yard is tucked away in the far corner next to the farmhouse.
