Literally something for everyone: fun, fun, fun for the kids. Relaxation and more relaxation for the adults. And space, space and more space for all. All in luxury surroundings you won’t want to leave.

Family paradise

As you drive through that signature Sussex countryside you already know you’re on your way to somewhere special. And when you round the corner to your family getaway, it’s confirmed. This stunning conversion, combining traditional with modern and some great extra touches is all yours.

Set in the grounds of a working farm with lovely views of the gardens and countryside beyond, Gildridge House has all the right ingredients for a family holiday to remember. The original 17th century features – think inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings, spiral staircase… sit perfectly alongside the modern additions. They include a kitchen fit for culinary kings, a covered pool (available May to end of October) sauna, games room and sunny conservatory.

Step into the Long Hall (8-metres long) with stunning original beams and where period furniture and fittings beckon invitingly by the open fire. Flow through into your bar, handily placed next to the dining area with room aplenty for all 12 of you. Take a peek at the gorgeous modern kitchen, flooded with natural light and supremely elegant in navy, white and light wood.

The elegance continues in the conservatory with its colourful cheques on the furnishings and best of all, access to that heated pool and sauna. Take a look outside – all those grounds are yours to enjoy. Perhaps best viewed from one of those sun loungers as you sip a little something and wait for the chefs to create in the kitchen or on the barbecue.

And if (and that’s a big if) you venture beyond your grounds, you’ll discover a world with something for everyone. Great Sussex walks and cycling routes start outside the front gates. A world of kids’ adventures is just a short drive away and for the adults, some of the best pubs and restaurants in Sussex. We said it would a family holiday to remember...

mrs T,

Just perfect in every way.

Mr H,

we booked gildridge house for a faily get-together after lockdown. the size of the house and 4 ensuite rooms, with extra beds, was perfect for us. lovely quiet rural location. the covered pool was fantastic for the kids.

Mr G,

Stunning house, beautifully furnished and well equipped, the children and adults enjoyed the swimming pool, would definitely stay again. Highly recommended

Ms J,

A beautiful, characterful and spacious house in a peaceful rural location, it made for a relaxing and happy holiday. Everything was maintained to a high standard and very comfortable. The pool was bigger than it looks on the photos, clean and a good temperature; we enjoyed the sauna and playing table tennis too. The kitchen was incredibly well-equipped, there were two huge fridges and a freezer for storage and the cooker was easy to use. Nearby Hailsham has a very good choice of supermarkets. The garden is large but open, so we needed to supervise our dog when outside and keep him on a lead when the cattle were in the field next door, but there were some good walks locally and within a short drive. Highly recommend.

Mrs K,

We all thought Gildridge House was excellent we were all surprised when walking in how beautifully furnished it was and how spotlessly clean . It was so well equipped , down to the smallest detail , we didn't want or need anything . The indoor pool was a must for us and it was clean and warm as was the house as the evenings were a bit chilly when we were there . No negatives for us at all and would definitely go back and recommend to friends .

Mr H,
