          Our unique and beautiful, newly converted property is located in the heart of the village of Maresfield and is set in the Ashdown Forest. Across the road you can enjoy the Grade II* listed Chequers Pub/restaurant and Grade I listed St Bartholomew Church. The Ashdown Forest is an ancient area of tranquil open heathland. The breathtaking vistas extend across the wooded hills of the Weald to the chalk escarpments of the North and South Downs. The Ashdown Forest is also home to 'Winnie the Pooh' and visitors will enjoy exploring the forest and visiting the famous 'Pooh Stick Bridge'. This is the perfect location for walkers, cyclists, golfers and many local attractions including many National Trust and English Heritage sites. We are situated just 14 miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells, 20 miles from both Eastbourne and Brighton and Gatwick Airport is also only 20 miles away. Good rail links are close by which provide easy access to London.

          Maresfield is surrounded by an abundance of great village pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Golfers have access to a number of fantastic courses suitable for all abilities. Walkers will enjoy the breathtaking views, wildlife and trails the Ashdown Forest has to offer.
