Iden, Rye, East Sussex, England
This large secluded Victorian house has breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside towards Rye. Inside rooms are light and airy. The property has undergone a total restoration and refurbishment. Period features have been lovingly restored and the ambiance of the family home maintained. The house is surrounded by three quarters of an acre of enclosed gardens and in addition there is a fenced, hard tennis court. The south facing brick paved terrace is a gorgeous suntrap with lots of flexible seating. The driveway provides parking for at least four cars.

A welcome hamper is provided for each booking.

Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The house was in excellent conditon, very clean and airy. Very well equipped kitchen. All the rooms were spacious. It was located in a quiet lane with fields all around. Large garden laid to lawn and a separate tennis court with astro turf. Plenty of tennis racquets, etc in the house. Thoroughly recommend this place.
