A family house built in the 1890s, designed by Philip Webb, friend of William Morris, and a showpiece of the Arts & Crafts Movement. It is decorated throughout with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, complemented by contemporary paintings, tapestries and furniture. The house retains many of its original electrical fittings.

The beautiful hillside garden gives fine views over the Sussex countryside and there are delightful woodland walks set in the area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of the High Weald. 2013 Sees the major restoration of the gardens get underway. A superb plant collection and lost garden features will slowly return to showcase the original Arts & Crafts garden.
