Description
Wimbles is an attractive and appealing character family house (not Listed) converted in the 1970s from a range of traditional farm buildings, the elevations being brick beneath a tiled roof. There is oil-fired central heating and double glazing. The property has been in the same family for 65 years, and is located in a private yet not isolated location.
A particular feature of Wimbles is that many of the rooms enjoy the beautiful outlook across the fishing lake.
The main features are:
• Front door to entrance hall leading through to the farmhouse kitchen/dining/family room with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbering, butler sink, slate working surfaces with cupboards beneath, tiled floor, two-oven electric Aga, open fireplace in pine surround and inset coloured patterned tiles, picture window overlooking the lake and door to the driveway and garden.
• The inner hall leads through to the drawing room with a woodburner fire set in a pine surround and mantelpiece, picture windows at one end overlooking the garden and fishing lake.
• There are three bedrooms, one with a wash basin and wardrobe cupboards. There are also two shower rooms both with shower cubicles, basins and WCs.
• The first floor is approached from a side hall in the oast roundel which has a woodburner (functional but not safety compliant) and a door to the garden.
• From the side hall in the oast roundel a staircase rises to the landing/study area. Bedroom 1 commands wonderful views over the lake and has wardrobe cupboards and eaves storage cupboards. Bedroom 2 is double aspect.
• The family bathroom has a bath, basin and WC.

The Sussex Barn
This comprises a detached Sussex Barn with consent to convert into a separate dwelling (reference WD/2015/2018/F) and is located adjacent to the main house. It has been partly converted to form a studio/workshop on the first floor, and thus retains the planning consent approval. The elevations are part-brick and weatherboarded beneath a tiled roof.
Attached is an open-fronted Byre with space for four cars. Also attached to the Sussex Barn is a useful storeroom and a log store.

Gardens and Grounds
These form a really beautiful setting to Wimbles with a gravel drive approach and parking area in front of the main house and Sussex Barn. There is an attractive established garden with areas of lawn, good selection of shrubs and a paved terrace abutting and overlooking the spring-fed fishing lake.
This is a superb feature of the property, extending to about an acre, with a wild natural fish stock including specimen carp and perch, and attracts a wide variety of waterfowl.
Beyond is a useful polytunnel, two traditional outbuildings comprising a stable and a pole barn, together with a garden shed and a productive vegetable garden with asparagus beds. There is also an apple orchard and a Kent Cob plantation
In addition, there are four hedge-enclosed pasture fields, enhanced by established oak trees and wild flowers, and with separate gated access onto the lane.
In all about 14 acres.
NOTE: a further 6 acres of paddock available by separate negotiation

The Holiday Camping Enterprise
This was established by the present vendors in 2000 and has proved to be an enjoyable venture with potential for expansion.
We recommend you visit the website www.experiencesussex.co.uk to fully appreciate all the benefits.
It comprises a fishing lodge 17’2 x 10’3 with wood-fired Rayburn oven, and available by separate negotiation are two shepherds huts, all set within the flower meadows abutting a small stream. There are also four different secluded eco-camping areas.
The season is from 1st May until 13th September whilst glamping is available from late March until the end of October. This operates within the 28-day allowance.
