Tucked away in a beautiful corner of rural East Sussex, the village of Forest Row is largely surrounded on by the magnificent Ashdown Forest. This has prevented any major expansion of the village, although it has grown gradually over the last 150 years to accommodate a population of 5,500 villages. Buying a property for sale in Forest Row allows you to become a part of this delightful community and enjoy the benefits of a more relaxed lifestyle away from the hubbub of the city. That said, if London calls it’s only a ninety minute drive away on the A22 trunk road.
Although the epitome of a rural Sussex village (you’ll often find beautiful traditional cottages among Forest Row properties for sale), residents are spoiled with an excellent selection of independent shops and businesses. There’s also a fine old English pub, the Chequers Inn, which dates back to the fifteenth century. Here diners can enjoy meals created from excellent local produce. In terms of things to do, besides exploring the village’s stunning surrounding countryside Forest Row has football, cricket and sailing clubs, an amateur dramatics society, Women’s Institute. The Royal Ashdown Golf Club, which has two courses, is also nearby.
On those occasions when a greater choice of shopping, entertainment or nightlife is needed, the vibrant town of East Grinstead is less than three miles from Forest Row.
If you’re looking for a gentler pace of life in rural surroundings and a village that thrives on its community spirit, you’re sure to be interested in properties for sale in Forest Row. There’s a home here for everyone. In addition to those traditional cottages you’ll find a good selection of modern terraced, semi-detached and detached houses to suit families of all sizes. There are also desirable flats, apartments and retirement properties for sale in Forest Row too and even the occasional grand manor house.
