About our home

We moved out of London about 7 years ago and have never looked back! We absolutely love our house, tucked away at the bottom of a lane in rural Sussex . The garden is about 12 acres - half garden and half bluebell woodland. There’s a large lake (rowing boat included !) and a river running round the edge of the property.

There is loads of space outside for entertaining or lounging. And lots of different places to sit. Tennis court , bikes , fire pits, pizza oven, table tennis and several BBQs.

Inside, there are 7 bedrooms, 3 en-suite bathrooms, a family bathroom and a large wet room with shower . There’s a large conservatory , a playroom and a huge drawing room with a big open fire. The kitchen has an aga, electric oven and hob and every bit of cooking equipment you can think of, including juicer, coffee machine, food processor , blender, meat slicer , kitchen aid etc etc!

There is excellent internet access - 100MB fibre installed throughout the house and gardens - and an office for anyone who needs to work from home. The local train station is 10 minutes drive , with direct trains to London Bridge.

Sleeping arrangements:

Bedroom 1 - super king , en-suite with bath
Bedroom 2 - super king , en-suite with bath
Bedroom 3 - twin, en-suite with bath
Bedroom 4 - double
Bedroom 5 - double
Bedroom 6 - double (low bed)
Bedroom 7 - double sofa bed

There are chickens, a greenhouse and large veg patch . We also have three very well behaved and low maintenance cats !

We have built a large yoga platform in the wood and plan at some point to start running yoga retreats here . But for now, we would love to try house swapping ! 2021 is the first year we’ve explored this and excited to see all the beautiful places on this website .

We have three teenage children so restricted to swaps in the school holidays at the moment and ideally we are looking to swap with places of a similar size . But we can also be flexible on that so please do get in touch if you’re interested

Parking available for multiple cars!

Where is it?


Moons Mill is an Arts & Crafts inspired Edwardian House in the village of Hadlow Down, East Sussex. The current house was built in 1901 and the location has been known as Moons Mill since 1912. Close to amenities but also far from the madding crowds

An hour by train to London, East Sussex has much unspoilt coast, the South Downs, Ashdown forest and many other outdoor activities. Shopping options in Tunbridge Wells & Lewes are again unique and quirky and about 25 minutes drive from Moons Mill. Brighton is about 45 minutes away.
