In the sought after Hamlet of Highbrook - a picturesque location well off main roads, set on a ridge with widespread rural views.

Within easy access are the villages of Ardingly and West Hoathly both with good primary schools whilst, to the south, is the excellent centre of Haywards Heath offering main line rail link to Victoria/London Bridge (around 40 minutes). Almost equidistant is East Grinstead with rail service.

Access to the M23 is at Copthorne leading to Gatwick Airport and Crawley 12-15 miles.

Forest Row with excellent local amenities is about 7 miles with Ashdown Forest a little closer for walking and riding - by permit - although there are numerous foot and bridle paths locally also offering scenic walks etc.

The general area offers a wide range of sporting and social amenities.

From Forest Row leave the village on Priory Road behind the church and proceed out over Ashdown Forest to Sharpthorne turning left at the Fox Eating and Drinking Inn into Highbrook Lane, (also known as Hammingden Lane), proceed for just over 1.5 miles to Highbrook.
