Guestling Hastings, TN35

about

Guestling Farm is a striking detached Grade II listed five-bedroom farmhouse with detached dairy, dating from the 16th Century, nestling in six acres of quintessentially English mature countryside situated close to the cultural maritime seaside town of Hastings.

This magical house and gardens prove the definitive in shoot locations, being of the right proportions to remain enchantingly intimate but with bountiful country house legroom to revel in, boasting hugely original natural charms to both the interior and exterior with exceptional uninterrupted views over the Brede Valley.

Guestling Farm has been sympathetically restored with paints, colours and textures hand picked from the past four centuries whilst all-important features in many rooms, such as the huge inglenook fireplaces, have been uncovered and re-established. Once safely past the giant period carved oak front door this curiously quirky country house is littered with a vast and eclectic range of truly unusual antiques, curios and decorative elements giving the whole an eccentric, yet tasteful, aesthetic with a common feel of faded gentility running through its core.

Essentially this location has plenty of different areas of exterior interest (hut, potting shed, old Dairy outbuilding, haystack, chicken coop, treehouse, fire pit) and a variety of backdrops including various gates, railings, sheds, brick walls etc.

The interior is fairly traditional and there are loads of items which can be used as props ~ old books, paintings, jars, jugs, picture frames.

On the land there are cows, pigs, and chickens too!
