Arts & Crafts family home with Morris and Co. interiors, set in a hillside garden
Philip Webb, friend of William Morris, designed this family house in the 1890s. A showpiece of the Arts & Crafts Movement, it is decorated throughout with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, complemented by contemporary paintings, tapestries and furniture. The house retains its original electrical light fittings. The beautiful garden gives fine views over the Sussex countryside and there are delightful woodland walks set in the AONB of the High Weald
