Pennybridge House, Beech Hill, Wadhurst, East Sussex TN5 6JR
Pennybridge House is a beautifully renovated Georgian country house on the edge of Wadhurst, in East Sussex. It suits parties of families and friends, and makes the ideal location for a luxurious weekend break.
The house sleeps up to 14 guests, in 7 bedrooms, with 6 bathrooms (5 of which are en-suite).
The reception rooms include a large sitting room and media room (both with televisions), and a dining room (seating up to 14 for a formal evening). The light-filled conservatory also has a table for 8. There’s a traditional country kitchen and an Aga, for cooking up a big feast of a Sunday breakfast.
For moments of quiet reflection, there’s a music room, with a piano, and for after-dinner brandies, there’s a large, comfortable drawing room. Should you feel the urge to dance, the Hall has parquet flooring and plenty of space.
Separate to the house, and within the beautiful gardens, is the pool house, with a gym, steam-room and sauna, and a swimming pool with diving board. There’s an all-weather tennis court, and lots of lovely lawn for silly games.
Also within the gardens is a big, generous terrace and a pavilion, within which is a fully-equipped barbecue kitchen.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“One of the really noticeable things at Pennybridge is the care and effort that has gone into its refurbishment and presentation for guests. It really is the most blissful place to stay and very well kept!”
About The Location
Pennybridge House is about 8 miles from Tunbridge Wells and is within the Weald of Kent. Gatwick airport is about an hour’s drive away. Both train and car take under an hour from London (the nearest train station is Wadhurst, 2 miles from the house).
Things To Do
The Weald of Kent makes for very fine walking over the North and South Downs, and there are numerous sporting opportunities. The house offers a Concierge Service, to help guests construct a schedule of activities, which might include anything from tree-walking to pony-trekking to guided Nature Walks.
There are several National Trust properties in the area, and the Bedgebury Pinetum, which works in association with Kew Gardens, and has the largest collection of coniferous trees in Britain.
There are also plenty of traditional local pubs, and lovely little villages to explore.
