A recently modernised five bedroom family home with 80ft garden and comfortable and spacious open plan living downstairs. Located 10 minutes walk from Balcombe train station which offers a direct train service to London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport. Balcombe is a characterful village with a pub, shop and tea room as well as beautiful surrounding countryside.
The house is a spacious 5 bedroom family home with flexible accommodation, sleeping a maximum of 7 people (in 2 kingsize bedrooms - both ensuite and three single rooms, one of which can have a mattress on the floor and/or a cot). There is a pretty 80 foot long garden with seating for 6 around a table. The garden has swings and a playhouse for children.
Downstairs, there is an open plan sitting room with dining area, leading through double doors to a large kitchen-dining room. There is a working fireplace in the sitting room. There is a study / playroom and a downstairs cloakroom.
Upstairs there are five good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom and secondary bedroom both have king sized beds and en-suite bathrooms; there are three further bedrooms which have single beds.
We have been Airbnb hosts for three years now, but in 2016 spent the year undertaking major building and renovation works on the house (hence no hosting, or therefore reviews from 2016). The photos of the garden are from 2014 and don't reflect the current lack of patio next to the house (which should be being replaced shortly, but the bottom of the garden remains the same and is fully functioning.
Guests are invited to use the whole house, except for the garage.
Interaction with guests
The house is available when we are away on holiday ourselves, hence the restrictions on when we let it out (and the minimum stay needed as we are not around to arrange for guests to changeover). There is one resident cat (which sleeps in the kitchen) so please be aware if you are allergic.
Other things to note
There is WiFi access throughout the house and Sky TV (with access to hundreds of channels) plus a DVD player. There is also off street parking for 3-4 cars.
Balcombe is a friendly, tranquil village and the house is located in a quiet cul de sac. We would be grateful if our guests could refrain from being noisy after 11pm as some of our neighbours have young children.
Smoking is allowed outside only and pets may be allowed by specific arrangement.
