A traditional cottage set within the Ashdown Forest, Twyford Farm Cottage is a delightful country retreat full of charm and character

The welcoming lounge has comfortable seating for six with an inglenook fireplace and a woodburning stove at its centre, perfect for a cosy evening relaxing after exploring the many surrounding attractions. The spacious dining area leads directly onto the outside terrace area - great for summer dining options! There is even part of the original wattle and daub wall remaining in between the living and dining rooms which hints at the history of the building.

On the ground floor, you will find an easily accessible king size double bedroom with an ensuite shower room with WC and basin. There is a also a separate cloakroom on this floor.

On the first floor, there is a cosy twin bedded room and another king sized double bedroom both serviced by the family shower room on the same floor. There are delightful far reaching views from this floor which encompass the beautiful panorama surrounding the cottage.

Outside there is a great summer BBQ area available with a large exterior table which overlook the delightful gardens, if you stroll a little further through the fields you can also visit the lake within the grounds.

Please note that due to the age and character of the building there are low beams

Horsted Keynes and beyond

Twyford Farm Cottage lies to the north of Horsted Keynes village and is set in a beautiful rolling landscape of the Sussex Weald. The village itself is a mile south east of the Bluebell Railway station. The Bluebell celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010 and runs from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead where it connects with mainline services. This takes the line to a total distance of about twelve miles passing through some of the most picturesque Sussex countryside that you will find. The railway is managed and run largely by volunteers and has the largest collection of steam engines in the UK outside of The National Railway Museum.

The village itself is a mile south east of the Bluebell Railway station. The Bluebell celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010 and runs from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead where it connects with mainline services. This takes the line to a total distance of about twelve miles passing through some of the most picturesque Sussex countryside that you will find. The railway is managed and run largely by volunteers and has the largest collection of steam engines in the UK outside of The National Railway Museum.

Right beside the station at Sheffield Park, Sheffield Park Garden is a magnificent informal landscape garden laid out in the 18th Century by Capability Brown. Four lakes form the centrepiece of the garden. There are dramatic shows of daffodils and bluebells in spring, and the rhododendrons and azaleas are spectacular in early summer.

The Ashdown Forest stretches over 1400 acres and is immediately due north of Twyford Farm Cottage. It was made famous by the stories about Pooh Bear. The forest offers extensive bridleways for both walkers and cyclists with magnificent views that draw the eye south and south east towards the South Downs.

To the west Wakehurst Place is the National Trust's most visited place, and home to the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. It is a feast for the senses, Wakehurst features natural woodland and lakes, formal gardens, an Elizabethan house, and the 21st-century architecture of Kew's Millennium Seed Bank which contains conserved seeds from ten per cent of the world's plant species. Like Wakehurst Place it is open daily.

Five miles to the north, you will find Standen which is hidden at the end of a quiet Sussex lane and has breathtaking views over the High Weald and Weirwood Reservoir. The design of the house is a monument to the combined genius of architect Philip Webb and his friend William Morris. All the big names of the Arts & Crafts period are represented, including ceramics by William De Morgan and metalwork by W. A. S. Benson. The beautiful hillside gardens provide year-round interest.

Peaceful and relxing

"We had a very peaceful and relaxing stay in the cottage. The setting is wonderful, and the birds are everywhere. We had 12 phesants in the garden at once! We enjoyed the walk in the farm wood. Would be nice to have a price reduction if only two people are occupying the cottage."

Stay at Twyford Cottage

"Lovely cottage in a peaceful area. The only comment I would make is that two of the beams upstairs are very low and you have to remember to 'duck down ' or you'll sustain a head injury! There is also a lower beam in the kitchen but this one is ok if you are under 6ft tall. Lovely woods for walking near by and nice to see rabbits and a deer one morning by the garden. Would certainly visit again."
