A charming period farmhouse set within beautiful gardens and grounds with views over the surrounding countryside to the South Downs. In all about 0.9 acre.

Little Wildbees is a much loved, unlisted period farmhouse which has been sympathetically enlarged by the current owners and has been in the same ownership for almost 35 years. The house provides spacious, well-arranged accommodation over two floors with a wealth of period features. The drawing room is a lovely room with an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and has two sets of doors leading out to the garden. Also of note is the generous dining room, which again has a feature fireplace.

In addition, there is a large garden room with a polished slate floor and a study. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden fronted units and includes a two-oven Aga and from the kitchen steps lead down to the breakfast room which has glazed doors out to the garden.

A leisure room with Jacuzzi & sauna, together with a cloakroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor.

Arranged over the first floor is a principal bedroom with a large ensuite bathroom, a guest suite comprising bedroom and bathroom, two further bedrooms and family shower room. From the house there is a lovely outlook over the property's garden, paddock and open countryside with the South Downs beyond.

This property has 0.9 acres of land.


The property is approached from the lane via a wooden five-bar entrance gate which leads through to an area of parking, to one end of which is the garaging and store. Immediately adjacent to the rear and south-west of the house is a charming, sheltered sandstone paved seating area. Climbing the rear elevation of the house is a mature rose.

Beyond the seating area the garden is laid to sweeping expanses of lawn and to one side is a picturesque pond. Bordering the far end of the garden is the property's paddock. In all about 0.9 acre.


Little Wildbees lies in a lovely rural position, a short distance from the centre of the picturesque village of Arlington with its church and public house. The larger village of Alfriston is about 4 miles and the regional centres in the area, Eastbourne and Lewes are 9 and 10 miles respectively. Within 2.25 miles is Berwick station which provides rail access to London Victoria/London Bridge in about 1 hour 20 minutes. Lying some distance to the south of Arlington is the South Downs National Park which provides extensive walking and riding opportunities.

Continue along this road for just under 0.5 mile, and immediately before the Berwick village signs and at a small crossroads, turn right, signposted to Arlington (Chilverbridge Road). Proceed along Chilverbridge Road and into the village of Arlington. Having passed the Yew Tree Inn pub on the left, continue for just under 0.25 mile and the entrance drive leading to Little Wildbees will be found on the right.
