If you’re looking for a slice of English village life that’s not too remote from city, countryside or the sea, a property for sale in Cuckfield could be the ideal solution. Cuckfield is a large and pretty village in West Sussex, ideally situated a mere 34 miles south of London and 13 miles from the coast. There’s more to Cuckfield, however, than chocolate-box good looks and a great location alone. The village sits on the western edge of the High Weald, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for those who love the countryside, wildlife-spotting and outdoor pursuits.
Cuckfield itself dates from the Saxon period of history, later gaining recognition as a staging post on the south coast to London route. Today it retains many magnificent historical half-timbered buildings and offers those moving home here a gentler lifestyle than some of the county’s larger towns and cities. That’s not to say that there’s nothing to do in Cuckfield; the village has its own tennis, cricket and football clubs, a museum and a surprisingly good range of independent shops. There’s also an abundance of great pubs and eateries to choose from in and around the village. And, of course, should you want to expand your shopping or entertainment horizons, Horsham, Crawley and Brighton are all just a short drive away.
Despite its compact size there is almost always an excellent variety of properties for sale in Cuckfield and close to it. These range from attractive one and two-bedroomed apartments that are perfect for retired folk to larger family homes both traditional and new-build. Those looking for a property in Cuckfield that is a little out of the ordinary may also, from time to time, find beautiful traditional cottages, bungalows and historical listed buildings for sale.
