The Monks House is pleasantly positioned in the heart of the highly desirable village of Withyham, which is located within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is thought to have been founded to accommodate the workers on the Buckhurst Estate. The old railway line lies a few 100 yards to the north now forming the Forest Way walking, riding and cycling path which extends for miles in both directions. A bus stop outside the house gives access to both East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells. The area is superb for walking, with the Ashdown Forest close by (one of the largest free public access spaces in the southeast) and delightful rolling countryside all around. Local amenities include an historic church, a primary school, a public house and a village hall within Withyham, with Hartfield, about 1.5 miles away, offering a general store, farm shops, a medical centre, a gift shop and tearoom and cricket and tennis clubs. More comprehensive facilities are available at Crowborough (about 4.7 miles) and Tunbridge Wells (about 7 miles).
