EVER fancied getting away from it all and moving to a hidden house in the country?

Hartfield Hall can be found tucked away down a tree-lined driveway on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.

On sale for £2.45million, this grand yet cosy fairytale home has idyllic 3.9 acre gardens with lily ponds, a meandering stream and its own separate cottage and outbuildings, surrounded by magical woods.

The five-bedroom property is a modern recreation of a Wealden Hall style house, with a spacious reception hall, drawing room and conservatory to boot.

At over 4,600sq ft, the house makes for an ideal lockdown home, with plenty of outdoor space to roam near the surrounding countryside, which inspired A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and friends.

The house has been designed in a period style with inglenook fireplaces and wooden beams throughout, and has a large, homely kitchen with modern fittings.

South-facing paved terraces look out on to the sweeping lawns and a separate one-bedroom cottage extends to almost 1,500sq ft.

Upstairs in the main house, an impressive master bedroom is spread over two floors with an open stairway leading to a private dressing room and bathroom on the floor above.

A versatile family or games room occupies most of the top floor, and could make for a sixth bedroom, with dormer windows set into the steep tiled roof and a fifth bathroom.
