The Location: Sandrock Hill, Crowhurst Village
The earliest mention of the settlement is in 771, when King Offa of Mercia gave the Bishop of Selsey a piece of land here; a church was then built by the Bishop. Crowhurst itself remained the king’s land until 1412, although various landowners were given possession of it over that time. The village has a primary school, good access to Hastings and Battle and is within the Claverham Community College catchment area. Crowhurst benefits from a train station with direct rail links to London.
The property is situated in the middle of the village within a short walk of the Plough Inn and nearly opposite Crowhurst recreation ground. There is easy access to the countryside and walks behind the property.
