Location Summary

Thorndean Drive, a small and private, select, cul-de-sac, positioned off Brighton Road, is situated just to the east of the A/M23 and approximately 1 mile to the east of Warninglid village where there is the well-acclaimed 'Half Moon' pub/restaurant, village hall and recreation ground. The village is surrounded by some of the area's finest rolling countryside interspersed with footpaths and bridleways.

Children from Warninglid fall into the catchment area for Warden Park Secondary Academy in nearby Cuckfield for which a school bus runs through the village, in addition to a regular bus service linking with the neighbouring districts and villages.

By road, access to the major surrounding areas, Gatwick Airport and London can be gained via the A/M23 which lies approximately 1 mile to the east of the village. The nearby villages of Cuckfield and Handcross both provide a range of shops and stores for basic daily needs and the towns of Haywards Heath, Horsham and Crawley (all within a comfortable 15-minute drive) all offer a more extensive range of shopping facilities as well as mainline railway stations providing fast and regular services to London.
