About this property

This extraordinary Dutch-style house is famous for its association with Elizabeth of Bohemia ('The Winter Queen'), Charles I's sister, to whom the house was 'consecrated'. There are spectacular views from the roof, as well as beautiful walks in neighbouring Ashdown Woods. Nearby Weathercock Hill and Alfred's Castle – an Iron Age defended settlement where in 871 King Alfred is rumoured to have defeated the Danes – offer fine walking country.
