About the property

The Water Tower - a holiday home that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom

A one bedroom holiday cottage in Ashurstwood, West Sussex.

Totally unique, The Water Tower is a 1 bedroom detached cottage set amongst the countryside of the Sussex Weald. On the ground floor, the living area is open plan with the dining area and kitchen. A spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom, which has a four poster double bed. The bedroom also has a Juliet balcony overlooking the glorious countryside. An ensuite shower room, with a corner shower cubicle, completes the upstairs layout. Outside the cottage is a good sized, enclosed garden - perfect to enjoy an evening barbecue, or just relish in the countryside surroundings.

Around East Grinstead

The Water Tower is approximately 3.5 miles from East Grinstead. From here you can catch a train on the Bluebell Railway down to Sheffield Park, or a mainline train (sadly not steam hauled) up to London. Close to East Grinstead there are various National Trust properties to visit. Wakehurst Place is open all year round, and is used by Kew Gardens as its country property and home of the Millennium Seed Bank. Standen is also nearby, and is famous for its links with members of the Arts and Crafts Movement such as Philip Webb and William Morris. A twenty minute drive brings you to Nymans Garden in Handcross, as well as High Beeches.

To the east lies the Ashdown Forest, well know to fans of Winnie the Pooh as The Hundred Acre Wood. The bridge where Pooh and Piglet played Pooh Sticks is on the edge of the Forest.

Peaceful and private, but close to town

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay. so peaceful with beautiful views, but only about 15 mins from East Grinstead so really convenient for London. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is difficult phone signal and no Internet. Other than that it was fantastic.
