• Description

    As seen on Channel 4’s ‘Hidden Villages’ and BBC2′s ‘Antiques Road Trip’. The only house of its kind open to the public, this beautiful 15th century Wealden hall house stands in a traditional cottage garden on the edge of the Ashdown Forest in picturesque West Hoathly.

    The house was owned in turn by Henry VIII, Thomas Cromwell, Anne of Cleves, Mary I and Elizabeth I. It is now furnished with 17th & 18th century country furniture and domestic objects while the garden is planted with over 170 culinary, medicinal & household herbs. The resident curator gives fascinating tours of the house and garden if requested and you are welcome to bring a picnic to eat in the cottage garden.
