Set over 3 levels, guests have 8 bedrooms to choose from (kings, doubles, twins, and bunks), 4 bathrooms (2 en-suite and 2 shared shower rooms), 2 large open - plan living rooms and 2 large kitchens. So whether you want to all be together or you want a little time to yourself, you'll always find plenty of space to relax and enjoy your stay. From the moment you step into the house, you'll be 'wowed' by the contemporary interior and views across the walled garden to the beautiful Sussex countryside beyond. The house is very well appointed with everything you need to have a magical, memorable holiday, whether it's just for a few days or for a week. There is a well equipped kitchen with all the necessary pots and pans for catering for a large group. There are 2 TVs and DVDs as well as 2 A/V systems. Bluetooth technology and Free Wifi are available to stream off the Internet. There is a comprehensive collection of gardening books as well as numerous games suitable for both children and adults. Let's not forget the many musical instruments, fun for everyone! The beautiful garden is divided up into 'rooms': Read a book in the orchard, play football on the lower lawn, enjoy alfresco eating on the deck or cook up a feast on the large complimentary gas BBQ; it's all here at Merryweathers, your home from home! The house has lots of parking space (for up to 10 cars) and is within easy reach of towns such as the old spa town of Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Hastings. The local village of Hawkhurst has a number of shops as well as a couple of supermarkets and a lovely small cinema. Merryweathers nestles in The High Weald of Sussex, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so expect to be 'wowed' by the scenery and small quaint towns like Tenterden with its old steam railway. You will never be too far away from numerous places of interest including the famous Bedgebury Forest for walks, cycling and 'Go Ape', the UK's number one forest adventure. If you are interested in castles, then visit Bodiam, Sissinghurst, Scotney, Hever and Leeds castles.....all within easy reach by car. National Trust properties abound with Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling, author of The Jungle Book in nearby Burwash. Love gardens, then you are spoilt for choice with Merriments, Pashley Manor and Sissinghurst Castle, all within a short 20 minute drive. In fact there is so much to do nearby, we have compiled a comprehensive guide book and will help you plan your day so you get as much out of the area in the time allowed. This includes cycling, fishing, golf, squash, sailing etc. ...and let's not forget eating out!! Award winning pubs and restaurants are all within easy reach of the house including 'The Great House' at Hawkhurst, 'The Brown Trout' and 'The Vine' at Lamberhurst to 'The George' at Robertsbridge. Enough said, Merryweathers has it in spades! You are assured of a warm welcome where we will make every effort to make your stay enjoyable and truly memorable.

About the neighbourhood
Where to start?! You will be spoilt for choice if you stay at Merryweathers. Set in the heart of the stunning Sussex countryside, you will never be more than a short journey from historic sites, beaches, vineyard tours, outdoor pursuits, beaufitul walks, forest and reservoir. We are also situated on the Sussex border path giving miles of exhilarating walks from the property itself. We hope we have whetted your appetite and look forward to hearing from you.
Getting around
Merryweathers, whilst out in the middle of the beautiful Sussex countryside, is just a short 7 minute drive from Etchingham train station (on the south east main line service from London Chraing Cross to Hastings). We also have easy access to the A21 London to Hastings trunk road. Most guests arrive by car (car parking for 10 cars at the property) which gives the flexibility to tour the region including the wonderful historic sites of Kent and Sussex. Taxis can be prebooked if required for pickup from stations, airports and the like. Simple ask when making an enquiry.
