Just an hour from London – yet this luxurious converted East Sussex Oast House feels like a million miles from the city

There are a lot of reasons for choosing to stay on this sumptuous 12-acre Sussex private estate. One is its gorgeous location in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, not far from the enticing Sussex village of Mayfield. Another is its extraordinarily comfortable accommodation, which would suit a couple, a group of friends or even a family of four. Finally there's the fact that it's only an hour or so from London yet it feels like a million miles: if you're looking for a easy, accessible break in the country, you really couldn't do better.

The Oast House forms part of the award-winning Fair Oak Farm country estate, where an array of buildings – everything from the original farmhouse and converted barns to treehouses and shepherds huts – are let together for wellness and business retreats. However, the Oast House is the only property on the estate available to rent on its own, benefiting from its own gated entrance, private parking and private courtyard garden and allowing couples and small families the chance to appreciate the estate’s setting and style.

At the heart of the property is an awesome single-storey, open-plan, living space, consisting of a huge sitting room and dining area that opens out onto the small walled garden. Off here, there's a well-equipped kitchen with oven, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge-freezer, and a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Upstairs, the vast master bedroom boasts a super-king-size bed under oak beams, air-conditioning, a Smart TV and large wardrobes and a dressing area leading into a bathroom in the converted round tower of the original Oast House that has a walk-in 2-person shower and a bath that you can really wallow in. The second bedroom is below here, in the base of the tower, and has a king-size bed and floor-to-ceiling book shelves, along with access to a downstairs toilet and shower room across the hall. Throughout there's good wifi with a digital guest guide, a music system and Smart TVs and lots of books for rainy days in the second bedroom (which used to be a small library).

​Finally there's the location, which is special, not only because of the property's secluded location on the estate but also because there is so much to see and do nearby. There are lots of activities on hand:  cycling in nearby Bedgebury Forest, rock climbing at Eridge, or just plain walking – footpaths lead every which way from Fair Oak Farm,. You can also walk or drive into the village of Mayfield, just a couple of miles away, which has a picturesque high street, indy shops and a couple of pubs. Plus there are vineyards galore in this part of Sussex and over the border in Kent, and the National Trust sight of Scotney Castle is only a 20-minute drive away.  Who would have thought that rural heaven was so easy to reach?
