Sussex House Farm nestles in 63 acres of picturesque rolling countryside to the south east of Cowden, a charming and unspoilt village on the edge of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex borders.
The house is steeped in history with the original two and a half storey timber framed house dating back to 1580 and forming the core of the current house. More recently, after the Second World War, the house was owned by the actor Sir John Mills, and later by Roger Hargreaves, who wrote some of his Mr Men and Little Miss books there in the 1970s and 1980s. More recently the Grade II*-listed Sussex House Farm has been beautifully renovated by its current owners over the last 15 years.
There is a pub and a church dating from 1300 in the village as well as a number of excellent farm shops in the area. A more comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities are available in East Grinstead, 7 miles to the west, or Royal Tunbridge Wells, 8 miles to the east. Road and rail communications are excellent; the M25 junction 6 is about 13 miles to the north and central London is only 35 miles away. Cowden station provides regular train services to London Bridge, taking from about 47 minutes.
