Emley is a Grade II listed substantial farmstead in an idyllic rural setting. The farmhouse and surrounding buildings are largely unaltered since the nineteenth century and retain a unique charm and character. Many original features remain such as the internal well and large fireplaces. The reception rooms are spacious and there is a traditional country kitchen.
Cottage Approach: The track to the cottage is uneven and unlit and is used by local farmers. Caution will need to be taken for low slung vehicles or at time of bad weather.
Parking: Please do not park in front of the house as access is required at all times by the farmer to fields beyond the house.
Accessibility: There are uneven floors throughout the cottage with some low beams. There are wooden raised steps into each room (access may be difficult if elderly or mobility impaired)
Please Note: Up to a maximum of 10 bags of sweet chestnut logs per stay can be ordered in advance via Contact Centre at a cost of £6.00 per bag. The wood supplied is sweet chestnut, cut from local National Trust coppiced woodland. Please be aware that the doors to the stoves need to be kept closed at all times as the wood has a tendency to split: the stoves work more efficiently with doors closed.
Long eared bats roost in the loft at this cottage. If a bat gets into the living room area during your stay please open a window to allow it to escape. Further information can be found in the Cottage Welcome Folder.
The Aga will be switched off from 1 May – 30 September
You could think it may be densely populated and just home to the bustling metropolis of London, but don't underestimate the South East's capacity for hidden charms, secluded landscapes and shady nooks to catch your breath. There's lots to explore from the hazy meadows and pastoral valleys of the South Downs, the dazzling White Cliffs of Dover and the glorious gardens at Sissinghurst and Polesden Lacey.
