The Parlour is a beautiful property set in 60 acres of pasture and woodland. Once the milking parlour for the farm, it is a fantastic space with bags of character, combining old world charm with modern day comforts.
Step out of the rear entrance and overlook the fields and lake, just a few hundred yards away, ideal for a picnic on a warm summer’s day. Here you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. With two public footpaths on the land, explore by foot and admire the beautiful scenery whilst discovering the local wildlife.
Located just outside the village of Cowbeech, which lies within the Civil Parish of Herstmonceux, heritage and history flow throughout. The Merrie Harriers local village pub, with 16th century origins, has far reaching views over the Sussex countryside, making it the perfect place to relax after a busy day of adventure.
There are plenty of activities in the area, including Herstmonceux Castle and The Observatory Science Centre, sure to entertain all ages. Visit Drusillas Park, a zoo of around 10 acres and perfect for children, or alternatively The South Downs National Park, which offers a number of activities, including bike rides through the forest, or boat trips where you can observe the famous cliffs of Beachy Head.
Foodies can enjoy local delights including delis, pubs and restaurants, vineyard tours, locally reared meats and cheeses, freshly landed fish and locally grown vegetables. For some culture, The Jerwood gallery in Hastings and Towner Art gallery in Eastbourne are great places to start.
The town of Charleston can be reached in around a 25-minute drive. Home to Bloomsbury arts and ideas, Farley Farmhouse and Gallery (home of the surrealists), Great Dixter House and Gardens and Batemans (home of Rudyard Kipling), you can get a real taste of the lives of their famous occupants.
Although you could truly lose yourself in the wonderful countryside, there are good train connections to Eastbourne, Hastings, Brighton, Tunbridge Wells and London. Services from three local stations are all within 12 miles of The Parlour. To explore by car, the nearest beach is 10 miles away, Eastbourne and Hastings a 30 minute drive, Brighton can be reached in 50 minutes. Beach 10 miles. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile
