Ashdown Place is approached through Ashdown Forest along a tarmac lane and a gravel drive. Beside the drive is a double garage with up-and-over door and parking in front. The garden lies to the front of the property and is mainly laid to lawn, with a selection of ornamental shrubs and trees, a mature hedge screening it from the drive and a line of shrubs separating it from the neighbouring garden.
From the centre of Forest Row take the A22 south. Continue out of the village past the sign for Ashdown Forest and take the first turning on the left. At the crossroads go straight across and follow the road towards Ashdown Place. Continue and fork right following the gravel drive and on the right is a double garage with space to park in front. Continue along the drive on foot through the opening in the hedge and the door to the apartment is on the right.
Forest Row has good local amenities, restaurants, golf and sports clubs. East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells have a further range of shops, transport and recreational facilities. There is an excellent selection of state and private schools in the surrounding area, including Michael Hall, Ashdown House and Brambletye. The Ashdown Forest is the largest free public access space in the South East and is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside.
The A22 and M23 (about 10½ miles) provide good access to London, Brighton and Gatwick. The train station at East Grinstead offers services to London Bridge/Victoria in 54 mins. Gatwick is about 14 miles
