Welcome to the first luxury cottage profile in Blue & Green Tomorrow’s cottages4you series. We kick things off with Little Park Hill Farm, a spacious country retreat in Sussex.
In the heart of Kipling country, this beautifully presented detached oast house enjoys a delightful rural setting, off a quiet country lane, with stunning distant views over the rolling countryside; from all of its rooms, visitors can admire the Rother Valley, High Weald and the Ashdown Forest beyond.
Adjacent to the owners’ home, Little Park Hill Farm boasts its own large sweeping garden with a natural spring-fed pond overlooked by a raised, wisteria clad deck. Meadows lead to bluebell wood with picnic area. Peaceful country walks, cycling and riding also abound in this scenic area, whilst trout fishing can be found at Lakedown Fishery about 5 minutes’ drive away.
Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling, is about 3 miles distant, along with other National Trust properties and gardens, including Scotney Castle, Great Dixter and Groombridge Place. Glyndebourne, as well as Herstmonceux and Bodiam Castles, Bentley Motor Museum, the Bluebell and Lavender Line steam railways and Battle Abbey are further places of interest to visit.
There is golf at East Sussex National about 20 minutes’ drive, numerous smaller courses are close at hand. Little Park Hill Farm is midway between the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the coast of Eastbourne and Brighton. For horse racing enthusiasts, there are courses at Lingfield, Brighton and Plumpton, all within easy reach. Shop 2 miles.
