Accommodation Frankwell Farm was built by its current owners in around 1994 on the site of a war damaged house which had a fascinating historical background including an entry in the doomsday book. The original property was bombed in 1940 and rebuilt in Sussex Farmhouse style using reclaimed materials and with later additions including two substantial outbuildings, since the original build a further wing has been added to the proeprty. The property is situated towards the centre of its own land, approached over a farm drive of approximately three quarters of a mile and offering total seclusion and privacy away from any noise pollution, neighbours or footpaths.

The drive continues through a five barred gated entrance to the side and rear of the house, flanked with lawns, shrub beds, mature trees and with brick patio. A particular feature of the property is the delightful spring fed natural lake encircled with mature oak trees, raised decking, a haven for bird and wildlife. There are formal lawns with raised vegetable beds and young orchard, chicken and duck arks. The remainder is laid to fenced paddocks which adjoin neighbouring farmland.
