Large family home in East Sussex village

The Old Vicarage East is a large and spacious yet traditional semi-detached house on 3 floors and great for two families to comfortably stay. We have enough beds to sleep 10 people. There are two bathrooms both with shower and bath and a downstairs toilet. All rooms are a very good size & the beds can be moved to suit your needs.

We have recently extended our kitchen to a modern and large open plan living space with bi-folding doors opening out onto a patio and the garden. The kitchen is an ideal space for entertaining or relaxing and where we spend most of our time. Close to the kitchen we have a cosy snug with TV and log burner. We also have a playroom/music room (with piano and drums) full of toys and games and a traditional lounge/sitting room with log burner for cosy evenings by the fire. Upstairs we have 5 large bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The well managed and secure garden is mainly laid to lawn with flowerbeds, fruit trees, a small wildlife pond and a patio area with a traditional pizza oven, BBQ and outside seating. We have a trampoline, bicycles for all the family, football goal, playhouse, table tennis table, and plenty of toys for your children to play with. We have a vegetable patch and greenhouse, please help yourself to produce! We also have chickens who ideally will need caring for but they are in their enclosed run and are very low maintenance - of course they lay delicious eggs! If you prefer not to look after the chickens we can ask a neighbour to help. We do have a dog but she will stay with a friend during your stay or come with us if possible.
