Impressive historic farmhouse sleeping 12 for large gatherings and family celebrations, with a covered pool, near Hailsham

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Gildridge House, Magham Down, Hailsham, East Sussex, sleeps 4-12 in 4 bedrooms.

Available from 1st Feb 2019.

Gildridge House is set on a working farm, with cattle and sheep, in Magham Down, 2 miles from Hailsham and near to Herstmonceaux Castle and the Observatory Science Centre and Planetarium. The house is set on the edge of the Pevensey levels with a view to Pevensey Castle and the South Downs. Perfect for a weekend escape, this house is just 1.5 hours from London, 40 minutes from Brighton, and 15 minutes from Eastbourne and Battle. Knockhatch Adventure Park is nearby.

Gildridge House is a large farmhouse which caters for large family gatherings, celebrations and cosy country weekends around the inglenook fireplace. The dining room seats 8 - 10 people with the option of adding another table for a further 6 people. However, Gildridge House has a hall room that could cater for 20 people for a special meal or could be used as the main dining room if you were wishing to all eat at a long table. One would then make the dining room the second sitting room with TV.

The heated and covered swimming pool, with graduated steps, is a mere 3 yards from the conservatory. The large boot room with sauna and shower room is also next door to the conservatory with more doors to the garden and garage. The main entrance has a small seated area for quiet moment away from the crowd!

A ground floor bedroom with shower room is perfect for grandparents wishing to avoid the two staircases and very accessible for people with mobility issues (although there is one step into front entrance and one step into bedroom). The family room in the 1990s extension has a bathroom with overhead shower and an area specifically for children with bunk beds and a truckle and space for a cot. The master bedroom has 4 single divans (or doubles) with an amazing semi circular bathroom, and the final bedroom is another ziplink double.

At the end of the long drive there is a 7 mile meandering lane with little traffic perfect for cycling across the marshes. The driveway lends itself to smaller people, happily cycling! There are two footpaths across the land and other walking opportunities are well catered for. Please note that there are two ponds in the garden.
