About Andre Zlattinger

We are Family of five with three active young boys and have lived in Sussex for many years. The boys love the space at home, they bike up and down the lane, we have a large field behind the house, where the boys have an original Tipi for camping. Plenty of trees to climb,a swing, climbing frame, sand pit to also keep them occupied. There are also a number of fishing ponds close by.

Fabulous oast

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous time at this beautiful property. Set down a no through lane, the house was fantastic for letting children have a little bit of independence going up and down the lane on their bikes and taking our dog (who was also welcome )for a walk. The kitchen is the hub of the house with a welcoming aga and underfloor heating. The beds were comfortable and cosy with the addition of a plentiful supply of hot water bottles. We had a fabulous christmas and stayed for two weeks! We have stayed in numerous properties in Sussex but would commend this for its authenticity and great location equidistant to Lewes, Tunbridge Wells and the added bonus of Wilderness Wood just down the road.
