Property Description

This converted detached Coach House enjoys scenic walks from the door over fields to the gardens at Batemans, the 17th-century family home of Rudyard Kipling. Appearing much as he left it, be inspired in Kipling’s study, see his 1928 Rolls Royce Phantom 1 in the garage and stroll through the garden to the River Dudwell, where you can watch the watermill grind flour most Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Set within the grounds of the owners’ home which offers 11 acres of gardens and paddocks with views across the fields, the Coach House enjoys its own private garden and is an ideal property for family gatherings or entertaining. Guests can enjoy shared use of the main house’s swimming pool (open 18th May to 22nd September) (sole use either morning or afternoon), use of an outside play area for children and games room (shared with the main house) with table football and a pool table situated in a garage adjacent to the Coach House. Burwash is a charming village with a Norman church dating back to a bygone time when the Manor was given to the Count of Eu by William the Conqueror in 1096 in recognition of his services in battle. Visit Pashley Manor Gardens at Ticehurst, Battle Abbey – experience the most famous date in English history and find out how the nation was changed forever. Approximately 7 miles – Bewl Water - the southeast’s largest lake set within the beautiful Wealden countryside, the fairytale castle at Bodiam and the vineyards at Lamberhurst. East Sussex National Golf Club is within a 30-minute drive, many other local golf courses within 20 minutes. Shops and pub ½ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A comfortable and roomy house with excellent facilities for young children - a well stocked play area. Even with 8 adults, two children and two babies, we felt we had plenty of space. Lots of crockery and kitchen equipment too. Bedrooms were very stylish. The garden wasn’t fenced off from the rest of the property though, which meant we had to watch the children when they were outside. April 2012.
  2. Nice and spacious cottage. Beautiful bedrooms. Dining room and living room are both a bit small for 12 people. April 2012.
  3. This was a fantastic property and ideal for the 11 of us celebrating a big family birthday. The property was clean, spacious and at the same time cosy, I would highly recommend it. Nov 2011.
  4. The Coach House exceeded our expectations. Very comfortable and well furnished. we were lucky in the weather and Debbie kindly let us use the pool all day. The children (3-10) had a great time, and also loved the other games etc, on offer. Debbie kindly left us home made scones, clotted cream and butter, which made an excellent first impression. We wouild all like to have stayed longer! We didn’t have time to sample the village pubs, but Batemans, Bodiam and Battle Abbey were a great success all round. Sept 2011.
  5. The coach house provides excellent accommodation for a large family. The amount of kitchen equipment and the fabulous cooker made feeding the family effortless. We had a party aged from 77yrs to 10 months and all had a very enjoyable time. May 2011.
  6. We really loved the location and the cottage. It was spacious with good sized bedrooms and a beautiful garden and pool. The dining room also easily seated 10 for our family celebration meal. April 2011.
  7. Well equipped and spacious. Aug 2010.
