Sussex Manor, is a luxury house rental with twelve bedrooms and 15 acres of private woodland. Located in a medieval village in the East Sussex countryside, within easy reach of both the Sussex coastline and London. The house blends the tradition of a country manor house with modern fixtures and fittings and has all the facilities you would need for a relaxing and fun filled break with family or friends.
The spacious, wood panelled entrance hall leads to the light and elegant living and dining rooms, large enough for all your group to get together, both have fireplaces too.
The sitting room has sumptuous sofas in velvet fabrics and a grand piano, for a good old sing-song. On warmer days, open the patio doors onto the side terrace to bring the outside in and enjoy the view.
Get creative in the sleek, well equipped kitchen, often the hub of a house party (bar stools for the non cooks), where you will find everything needed to whip up fabulous culinary delights. Alternatively, hire someone in to do it for you! We can make some recommendations.
If you need some peace and quiet, disappear to the second living room, snuggle down on the cosy sofa and read a book, play some games or just chat!
On the ground floor, there are 2 large double bedrooms with access to the outside via patio doors. These have access to the downstairs cloakroom, or pop upstairs to the family bathroom. (See the house floor plan here).
There are seven beautifully furnished bedrooms on the first floor, four of which have their own en-suite bath or shower rooms. One of these features an enormous wet room (no exaggeration!) with a state of the art mist/monsoon shower.
On this floor there is a family suite, ideal for parents with young children, comprising a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. These share an en-suite, which makes them perfect for parents with young children, or friends sharing. There is also a separate bathroom, again huge!
This delightful big house has a beautiful wood panelled dining room, which can cater for up to 26 guests over 3 tables. The large doors can be opened out to the terrace in the summer time, perhaps for pre-dinner drinks, before you drift in for dinner.
In the main sitting room there is a large flat screen TV, with Netflix. This house is perfect for everyone to enjoy a group weekend away.
Pool, grass tennis court and gardens
The garden and outside space has fabulous facilities for all ages, including the barbeque area and wonderful rustic dining table and log seats. Take the party out to the large, heated swimming pool, open during the summer months and relax on the loungers.
If you want to keep fit during your stay here, there’s some gym equipment, housed in its own building, or have your own mini Wimbledon tournament on the grass tennis court.
Children will love the giant outdoor games and the woodland adventure play area, whilst parents will love its woodchip safety flooring!
