LOCATION Staplecross is a pretty hamlet with many attractive period and historic houses, a country inn, village hall and church. Nearby, the village of Bodiam boasts a vibrant history which centres around the attractive moated 14th Century castle ruins. The country inn in the village was also built in the 14th Century to provide food and lodgings for visitors to the castle, which it still continues to do. There is also a 12th Century church which is home to a brass of a knight with the arms of the de Bodeham family, after whom the Village was named.

Sedlescombe (approx. 3 miles away) is a historic and picturesque village with a charming village green, a well-stocked general store and post office, a hotel with a swimming pool and a restaurant which also hosts frequent opera and jazz nights, a garage, an organic vineyard and an antique shop. The village also boasts an extremely popular local pub 'The Queens Head' providing top quality food and drink. There is also the first-rate Black Brooks Garden Centre with a restaurant serving delicious sandwiches and cakes.

EXTERNALLY Set in 10.27 acres (source:www.promap.co.uk). The cottage is accessed via a five bar gate which leads on to a gravel driveway with space for numerous vehicles. There is a two bay garage with a log store to the side. The garden has been kept very separate from the equestrian facilities, so there is a place to sit and watch the world go by with friends and family. The garden has been well maintained and the front of the property is adorned with roses and other beautiful flowers and shrubs, giving a quintessential country cottage appeal. In the garden to the rear, there is a pretty pond that can be enjoyed from the garden room. Continuing through the garden, to the yard itself, there is a barn which houses two stables and a sheltered area to stand your horses. There are two sheds which serve as tack/feed rooms and also a 3 bay pole barn making a perfect hay storage space. This area has been cleverly separated from the paddocks as a place for short term turn out for horses. Within this area, there is also a kitchen garden, and for those with green fingers, a great place to grow some carrots! The paddocks have shelter from bordering woodland, whether it be from rain or sun. The paddocks also benefit from having a slight slope, so the chance of boggy fields is minimised.
