This spacious Sussex oast house holiday home is the perfect choice for larger groups wishing to celebrate a special occasion in style, set in extensive grounds for everyone to relax and enjoy.

This large five-bedroom country house set in gorgeous established gardens is a real find, and the versatile layout inside will ensure a smooth-sailing family get-together, whatever the occasion. Boasting two kitchens, two cosy lounges and several dining areas, young families or teen relatives can relax in their own space, and there's room for everyone to come together too.


Pulling into the grounds, your group will take a collective sigh as your gazes flit from ancient twisty trees to manicured hedges and colourful flower displays. The distinctive shape of the historic house, once used for kiln drying hops as part of the brewing process, gives the property a fairytale feel and inside the magic continues. Faithfully restored with many original features and furniture, the house is homely and welcoming – and seems to go on forever. Wander through the ground-floor rooms discovering the cosy lounge, the cute dining room in the roundel, and full kitchen, before heading upstairs to the main lounge/diner with fantastic countryside views and dining table for ten. The roundel room on this floor houses another kitchen, with a stunning circular worktop and central dining table. Bedrooms and bathrooms on both the first and ground floor complete this unusual home, featuring some beautifully carved wooden beds, while outside a large charcoal BBQ is on hand for summer celebrations with seating for ten on the patio overlooking the pretty gardens.
