Located in the centre of the beautiful village of Balcombe, which is an area of outstanding beauty set in the Heart of the Sussex countryside , is this newly re-furbished and totally independent property.
Set just 15 minutes from Gatwick Airport and 1 hour from Heathrow. With trains to London (1hr) and Brighton (25 mins) and an abundance of walks on your doorstep you won't be short of things to do.

The space
It has high rise ceilings in the living area with an abundance of natural light pouring through. The french door opens onto a small but private patio with outstanding views across the countryside. The Kitchen has everything you need and with the local shop just a minutes walk away you can stock up on fresh and local produce.

The double bedroom sits just next to the living room with an optional curtain if want privacy.
We also a 2ft 6 daybed that is situated as you walk into the property if you have an extra person but plz note is 2ft 6 and more suitable for a smaller adult or child because not 3ft. It is listed as a 2nd bedroom as no other option allowed on click down but note it’s just inside front door and have to go through this room to get too bathroom. I can also provide travel cot and bedding and high chair .
The property is totally detached from our main house so have complete privacy but we are on hand if need us.
There is a local pub which serves food daily which we advise booking in advance at weekends , hairdressers, knitwear shop and tea rooms all within immediate vicinity. With fabulous walks on your doorstep and access to so much via local public transport, there is so much to do yet you still feel like you are a million miles from anywhere.

There are many beautiful places nearby you can drive/walk to including; Wakehurst Place, Nymans Gardens, Lewes, Lindfield, Cuckfield and many many more nice places to visit.
We are 10 minutes walk to station which is on the main London to Brighton train line.
There is also beautiful Balcombe Place an ideal place for a wedding

Guest access
Small private outside area
Own off-street parking spot but no really large vans/campers please.

Other things to note
We also provide tea, fresh coffee, sugar, milk, olive oil, biscuits, ice ,butter, cereal and sometimes few treats !
We have board games, cards, adult and children colouring books and crayons and children’s books.

( All above including the tea/coffee and games are probably not possible until this silly virus goes due to cross contamination but if you ask me to get you some amenities I can and put in room for just the cost of goods brought. )
If can think of another way of doing above safely I will of course
