Whitehouse Farm is a wonderfully welcoming Victorian farmhouse perfect for families and friends looking to explore the Kent and Sussex countryside.
Dog-friendly and in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the views of the surrounding countryside are stunning. You may be lucky enough to spot a herd of deer which visits the farm frequently throughout the year.
The front door, featuring stained glass panels, opens to the light and airy entrance hall. The feeling of light and space continues throughout the house thanks to the beautifully proportioned rooms with high ceilings and bay windows. Some of the rooms still have their original fireplaces (these are ornamental and not for use) and this mix of old and new creates a lovely homely feel.
There are two comfortable sitting-rooms, one with a cosy wood-burning stove, and both rooms have a TV.
The generous open plan kitchen/dining-room is a lovely sociable space to cook up a storm using the large dual fuel range. Off the kitchen is a cloakroom, the utility-room and a useful boot-room - don't forget those wellies! There is additional living and dining space in the conservatory, which enjoys pleasant views of the surrounding gardens.
The first floor has an open split-level landing leading to a twin bedroom and the traditional-style family bathroom. At the end of the landing is the principal suite with 'zip and link' beds (which can be made up as a super-king bed or three-foot twin beds if you prefer). The suite also has a dressing area and en suite bathroom. At the front of the house, with far-reaching views, are two more double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower-room.
Venturing into the garden, the pretty terrace is a lovely spot where you can relax, listen to the sounds of nature, catch the afternoon sun and perhaps enjoy a barbecue. Dogs will enjoy the garden as well but please remember it isn't entirely escape-proof!
Guests are welcome to walk across the fields and even take a picnic during the warmer months. Please note that this is a working farm so there will often be cows and sheep grazing. Guests are asked to follow the countryside code, shut gates and always keep their dogs on a lead.
