On a private lane with views across the valley to a 12th century church this is a peaceful location and is ideally situated between London and the south coast. I'm in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is rich in both history and culture.

The space

Staying in my house you'll enjoy a spacious, peaceful environment with all the comforts of home.
It's easy to travel into London with hourly trains just over a mile away. The spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the Ashdown forest are just a few miles away and there are masses of historical houses and places of interest to visit. Brighton and the south downs are within easy reach - great for shopping, walking and sight seeing.

Guest access

My guests have a spacious double room with use of a separate private bathroom. Breakfast is taken in the kitchen/dining room and you are welcome to relax in the garden, summer house or conservatory. During the day you have use of the comfortable sunny sitting room and the kitchen is available to prepare/ eat your own food if you prefer to self cater rather than visit one of the many lovely pubs and restaurants in the area.

Interaction with guests

I love my house and have lived here for over 30 years. I can tell you about the best places to visit and help you get the most out of this stunning area - however if you wish to be private I'm happy to leave you to yourself. The house is big enough for my visitors to remain undisturbed by my presence.

We really enjoyed our stay with Jeannie. A very welcoming and interesting person. She shared lots of experiences of her travels with us and was really interested in what we had done. Her knowledge of the local area ( as well as many places around the world ) was very helpful. We stayed up quite late chatting. Her home was lovely and the neighbourhood quiet. Our room and bed were very comfortable. Breakfast was great with really good scrambled eggs! We really appreciated the use of the kitchen to heat up a meal. Thank you Jeannie, for hosting us.

Thanks Jeannie for a lovely and welcoming stay. Jeannie's house was ideally suited for me, far enough away from the larger centres yet within easy stricking distance and on the major public transport lines. Accomodation was as indicated with a very comfortable and fitted out room ( double bed is very comfortable) with desk and wardrobe. Bathroom facilities are good and on same level as bedroom upstairs. Jeannie is a very warm and welcoming person amd very helpful with what is about to do and how to get to place. shared areas are large and clean and the garden is to die for! plan some extra time to chill out on the terraces. Loads of walks and trails on the doorstep too.
