The farmland consists of about 119 acres of attractive rolling pasture land, classified as Grade 3 and consists of slightly acid loamy and clayey soils which suits its current use well. There are two main amenity blocks of mature broadleaf woodland known as Sussex House Wood and Little Heathersome's Wood.

Straddling the Sussex/Kent border between Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and East Grinstead, Sussex House Farm is the perfect family home for horse lovers with facilities and an indoor school that would be the envy of many an owner. The house lies in the middle of its own land and the various elements generate good income with further potential to develop some of the buildings should the new owner wish to.Chris SpofforthProperty agent
