Spectacular holiday house near Hailsham sleeping 24 with a games room, hot tub and pool for family celebrations and holidays with friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Eastwood Observatory, Herstmonceux, East Sussex, sleeps 12-24 in 12 bedrooms.

This beautifully restored Georgian country mansion near Hailsham definitely has the Wow factor. Inspired by the architectural design of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, Eastwood offers the perfect combination of traditional features and contemporary style, the ideal choice for a multi generation family gathering, a friends reunion, a special celebration, a retreat or a corporate event.

The house is set within 10 acres of grounds, surrounded by vineyards and located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The outdoor pool, hot tub and tennis court provide lots of on site entertainment for all ages. For something different, or as a business activity, ask about wine tasting or a tutored astronomy workshop.

The spacious kitchen comes very well equipped and is perfect for preparing large meals. A private chef is available for hire too. The stylish open plan dining room has a large and long table for 24, flanked by original Georgian arched windows with great views. It is a truly conducive space for everyone to sit down together, for memorable feasts and celebrations. Eastwood has plenty of opportunities to sit back and unwind inside after dinner next to an open fire although, on warmer nights, a drink next to the illuminated pool area is certain to be on the agenda.

The Observatory staircase to the upper floors is an impressive feature making for an interesting climb to the accommodation on the upper floors. 12 luxury bedrooms are individually designed with elegant soft furnishings and modern touches. All have lovely large windows overlooking the grounds and surrounding countryside. Beds are mainly king size although there are also 2 singles for preference. Bathrooms are plentiful and a useful mix of showers and baths.

This spectacular country house is just a 5 minute drive from the village of Herstmonceux which has its own castle, and also 2 pubs serving decent ales and good pub food. The town of Hailsham is 15 minutes away and Battle 20 minutes. For a trip to the coast, Eastbourne is only 30 minutes away, with Brighton slightly further afield.
