Campfield Rough lies in a tranquil position surrounded by Ashdown Forest and is within its own park-like gardens. The village of Fairwarp is a mile away, and provides a church, public house and village hall. Crowborough, which offers a good range of local shopping including a Waitrose supermarket and a mainline train station to London is about four miles, whilst Buxted Station is five miles distant. Ashdown Forest is protected by an act of Parliament, providing many miles of walking and riding country, with spectacular views over Sussex and the North and South Downs. The larger regional centres in the...

area, Haywards Heath and Royal Tunbridge Wells are about thirteen and twelve miles respectively, both provide mainline train services to London in under fifty minutes. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area including Ardingly College, Mayfield School, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks. Preparatory schools include Ashdown House, Brambletye, Cumnor House, Great Walstead and Michael Hall. From the road, a tarmac drive leads to a large parking area adjacent to the garaging. A gate gives access to the front of the property and a sheltered courtyard, which has been thoughtfully landscaped, beautifully planted and laid with Indian sandstone to create a wonderful area for al fresco dining. A sandstone path wraps around the house and leads to a wide terrace adjacent to the rear. To one side of the garden is a very useful home office/studio. The gently undulating park-like gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are interspersed with a vast array of specimen trees including several types of Acer, a Pieris, Gingko and a magnificent Eucryphia and Eucalyptus. The large tarmac parking area will accommodate at least six vehicles, with the triple garage beyond. A boarded area in the roof of the garage provides a large amount of storage. A lawned area leads to the well maintained grass tennis court bordered on one side by a delightful woodland shaw.
