About our home

Welcome to Spring Farm! In 2015 we finished the complete architectural remodelling of what was a cottage in the traditional Sussex style. We are on the edge of the village of Hurstpierpoint and the South Downs national park; and the house has been designed to make the very most of the views over the hills and farmland. Our state-of-the-art open plan kitchen has 10m of glass which folds away to bring the outside in. And when it rains (it does sometimes, in England...) you can close up and look out while enjoying a log fire, a movie, the Playstations, or just a nice hot cup of tea. We love the picture windows in our large master bedroom (with huge en suite). There are three more bedrooms (two with en suite bathrooms and one with its own shower room down the corridor), two cosy living rooms in addition to the enormous open plan kitchen-living area, and a library landing with window seat.
If you have kids we will leave the football (soccer) goals...
Hurstpierpoint is a lovely, lively village with three pubs, individual cafes and great food shops. The Horse Inn is five minutes walk, with its own micro-brewery and tapas bar. The New Inn is more traditional, with a pretty garden and good food. We can also recommend the Nupur Indian and the Fig Tree.
Vibrant, cosmopolitan Brighton, with its beach, cafes, seafood restaurants independent shops and quirky vibe, is 15 minutes down the road. You can be in central London in an hour by train. Or you can just enjoy the South Downs - miles of hills and farmland with walking and cycling paths through quintessential English countryside. You are a short drive from castles at Bodiam and Arundel, impressive Chichester cathedral, Littlehampton's sandy beaches and the Tudor town of Lewes, home to Henry VIII's wife Anne of Cleves. The locally-grown champagne isn't bad either!
Best of all is to fire up the barbecue on the west-facing patio and watch the amazing sunset over the countryside.
Getting here is easy - we're 20 minutes from Gatwick Airport and can arrange pick ups. Our cleaners come weekly and can do a clean after you leave. And in case of any problems, Ben's parents are only 20 minutes up the road and will be happy to provide help with the house, suggestions of places to go and anything else you need.
We are very keen travellers so will listen to any offers for 2020!
