General Safety Code:

Take care – swimming pools are hazardous; water presents a risk of drowning; injuries can come from hitting the hard surfaces and misuse of equipment. Never swim after a heavy meal; avoid holding your breath for long periods; take special care if you suffer from medical conditions such as epilepsy, asthma, diabetes, or heart condition. Make sure you know how deep the water is; do not run or perform acrobatics; do not shout except in real emergencies. Keep an eye open for others, particularly children; get help immediately if someone is in difficulty.

Thank you for your co-operation

The Estate

We have lovely green spaces around the Cottages. You can hear bird songs and see squirrels playing on the grounds. There are two public footpaths at the far end of the cottages, leading you over farmers’ fields, these lead you to Hank ham, Hailsham or to Polegate. The cuckoo trail is close by, a walk and cycle trail along the old disused railway line that extends for 14 miles through the Sussex countryside. A map is displayed in the Information centre.

There are many paths, woodlands, gardens and open spaces to enjoy within the 17-acre estate.
Within the grounds of the estate, guests can enjoy the lovely lake and beautiful woodland which is home to some of England's most unique birdlife - guaranteed to provide a memorable time of discovery and relaxation.

There is a basketball unit that can be used, located next to the Manor House car park.

Fishing Lake

  • We have a small lake to the rear of the Manor house which is stocked with carp and some roach. The carp go to about 6lb, with a large number of smaller carp under 1lb.
  • Please note- the fishery is not open to the general public
  • Holiday guests are free to fish in the lake while staying in one of the cottages
