Property Details


The property occupies a semi rural setting in the village of Guestling, between the ancient cinque port town of Rye and historic coastal town of Hastings, bordered by beautiful undulating countryside and only a short drive from the coast.

There are a number of public houses/ restaurants close by , primary and secondary schooling, butchers and farm shops whilst the neighboring towns offer a range of shopping sporting and recreational amenities.

The A259 passes the property connecting the the coastal ports of Dover and Folkestone to the city of Brighton.

At nearby Pett Level there is access to miles of shingle beach, this forms part of the stunning coastline of the Rye Bay.


''We have lived here as a family since 2016 and bought Lords Wood as our forever home.

During our time here, we have had three generations living happily side by side including my mother and her live-in carer, as well as plenty of space for the children. In addition, we both work considerably from home and have been able to do so with ease. There of course is also space for our family of five large dogs!

Lords Wood has been the perfect home, which we have lovingly renovated and extended including all wiring and plumbing, as well as new kitchens and bathrooms. It has been a joy to see the transformation and we feel very lucky to have lived here in the heart of the Sussex countryside and with easy reach of some beautiful walks and beaches.

It is with great sadness that we are moving, prompted only by a new job and the need to move to the North of England. We leave many happy memories behind and a home that we hope the next owners will love as much as we do''
