A spacious driveway greets you upon arrival, offering ample parking spaces for your guests and making loading and unloading an easy task. Kicking off your shoes, step over the threshold and make your way inside this lovely home-from-home for the duration of your stay, making use of the handy storage space provided in the entrance hall to store your belongings away from the main living areas. Follow the hallway through to the cosy sitting room, home to a handful of sofas gathered around a traditional inglenook fireplace, enticing you to put your feet up and unwind with a moment of peace in front of the television. When stomachs start to rumble, make your way through to the fully equipped kitchen, where you'll find a range of appliances to assist with your catering needs, including an electric oven and hob as well as a rustic kitchen island, ideal for sharing a bottle of wine as the designated chef cooks up a culinary delight. Set the table in the nearby dining room and gather together with your loved ones to indulge as you recount the day's adventures or escape the excitement and head through to the living/dining area, stoke up the wood burner to enjoy an intimate meal for two before snuggling up on the sofa in the snug for a movie marathon. Completing the ground floor is the first of six bedrooms, a sumptuous double, along with a handy cloakroom, both ideal for guests with limited mobility. Heading upstairs you'll find four additional double rooms all with built in wardrobes, with the master bedroom benefiting from access to its own en-suite bathroom, alongside a bunk room, perfect for sleepovers for the little ones, and a contemporary family bathroom. Head outdoors and make a splash with a dip in the heated swimming pool or end the day in style with an indulgent soak amongst the bubbles in the hot tub as your furry friends stretch their legs on the large lawn. Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic stroll through woodlands or a walk on Ashdown Forest. Alternatively, you could visit the heart of Crowborough, once home to famed author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who penned Sherlock Holmes, where you will find a host of essential amenities, including a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants, high-street and independent shops. After stopping off for a bite to eat, get your steps in with a scenic stroll through the woodland at Crowborough Country Park, hike to the summit of Bunkers Hill, making sure to keep your eyes peeled for the delightful deer en-route, or test your swing with a round at the well known Crowborough Beacon Golf Club.
