The property is delightful. Set in the grounds of the family home yet still ensures privacy to the guests. The interior decoration and furnishings are completed to a high spec. and feel new and not tired in anyway. Super welcome tray too!

A simply stunning property that exceeded all expectations. We had a girls trip away and this was the perfect location for it. Absolutely spotless & much bigger in real life than the photos suggest. Every detail had been carefully thought through and we would highly recommend this for a country escape. Thanks so much for having us.

The apartment is ideal base, beautifully appointed with beautiful views across the gardens and neighbouring fields. It’s well positioned to access the coast, heritage sites and gardens and Ashdown Forest.

Gunbanks Forge provided a lovely setting in a beautiful environment for a short family break. Our hosts were very welcoming and provided advice & tips on local places to visit. The property is in excellent condition and completed to a high standard. The beds were extremely comfortable, the shower was great and the kitchen & dining amenities were superb. The use of the fire pit was a bonus for our evening sitting outside and admiring the beautiful gardens & wild deer roaming around. We had a wonderful stay, visiting Pevensey Bay, Eastbourne and a popular classic car show in Waldron, nearby. We were rather sad to leave Gunbanks Forge, having had such a lovely time.
