Set in the green rolling hills of East Sussex, this superb oast house offers luxurious and spacious accommodation for up to eight guests across four beautiful bedrooms, along with three bathrooms. Full of characterful features and charm, this wonderful property is ideal for a group of friends or family seeking an idyllic countryside break for a spot of rest and relaxation within easy reach of the south coast.
Set along a peaceful lane just a few miles from the charming town of Mayfield, the oast house immediately impresses when viewed from the outside, with its warm, red brickwork and towering roundel. Inside, the property is a delight, with original beams and exposed brickwork complemented by tasteful and stylish décor throughout. The beautiful hallway welcomes guests into the house and leads into the kitchen, which has a large feature fireplace, now home to an Aga and perfect for keeping things cosy in the winter. With sparkling worktops and immaculate white woodwork, it is also well-equipped for creating some wonderful meals. The country-style breakfast table is perfect for a leisurely start to the day. Next door the beautiful, formal dining room has large table to seat eight and has lovely views out into the garden through the glass doors. Also on the ground floor are three of the four bedrooms, along with a smart shower room. Guests can be assured of warm toes with the benefit of underfloor heating throughout. The double bedroom is light and airy, with patio doors leading directly out into the garden. The en-suite shower room is beautifully designed with mosaic tiles, and the exposed brickwork and ceiling beam add character. The first twin room sits in the circular roundel and is pretty and inviting, with its floral bedding and exposed beams. The second twin room is equally delightful, with dual aspect windows and crisp, fresh bedding.
Heading up the stunning handmade staircase to the first floor, guests will be wowed by the superb sitting room. This huge space, with its fabulous vaulted ceiling, cosy wood burner and large, comfortable, leather sofas, is a wonderful space for guests to get together and relax. Also on this floor is the spectacular master bedroom. Set in the top of the roundel, the king-size bed sits beneath the exposed oak rafters that reach to the roof, creating a fantastic canopy. Complete with an elegant en-suite bathroom, this is a truly special room.
Stepping outside, guests will be welcomed on to the paved patio where there is a table and chairs perfect for enjoying drink. With a large lawn backed by fields of grazing sheep and mature trees, it is an idyllic spot to relax in the sunshine. Five Ashes Oast is a wonderfully elegant and spacious property, full of character and ideal for a family seeking a week of relaxation in luxurious surroundings.
