Description

Gracious manor house with wood panelling, Tudor rose ceilings, wood burning stove, tennis court and swimming pool, Chartwell nearby.

In a most beautiful setting, amid 150-acre parkland grounds, and with two acres of formal garden complete with sole use of swimming pool and tennis court, this gracious country manor house offers a warm and characterful retreat (owner retains a service wing for private use). With origins in the 12th-century, the present house was built in 1616 and is full of period features and furniture, such as original fireplaces, 16th and 17th-century wood panelling, Tudor rose ceilings and a grand staircase with twisted balustrade dating from 1682. The themed bedrooms, intimate reception rooms and dining room combine to make it an ideal holiday choice for family celebrations and get-togethers. The surrounding area is steeped in history, with Sissinghurst Castle, Penshurst Place, Hever Castle, Chartwell (Churchill’s home) and the moated splendour of Leeds Castle all beckoning exploration. Golf, fishing, horse riding and hunting can all be arranged locally. Etchingham Railway Station is
15-minute walk, or 3 minutes by car, for rapid access to local places of interest, and the sites and sounds of the capital can be accessed in around an hour and a half. Shops 2 miles.

    The place is lovely situated and has for sure been marvelous quite a while ago. Currently (July 2016), however, it is literally falling apart and needs serious renovation. One could easily live with and even enjoy an old place and compromise on lots of unnecessary luxury but meanwhile the house even needs scaffolding on the most beautiful parts outside so as not to fall over... This reminds you every day that it is not just old but simply very badly maintained. It is ridiculous from the owners that this house is still rent out at the regular price with no discount and without even properly informing people of the status. Pipes are leaking (what else than laughing can you do, when all of a sudden a sewage pipe leaks over the barbeque place...), fabrics on furniture and curtains are disgustingly dirty and full of holes and cuts, lots of litter and old building material is spread over the backside of the gardens, tennis-court and pool are poorly maintained (usable though) only to mention a few highlights. Once we got the 1-liner information only a few days before arrival that there is "some small scaffolding" set-up (which had already been there for months...) we had no chance to re-book or change our holiday plans so we went for it and tried to make the best out of it. With lovely weather and lots of nice things to see in the surrounding we still had a great time at Haremere Hall and didn't allow the rip-off pricing of our home base in southern England to destroy the mood of our holidays. If the owners ever decide to renovate the place, it must be marvelous but before that, don't touch!

    Haremere Hall is a wonderful Jacobean manor house, with large rooms authentically furnished. The upholstery was quite worn, but fit right in with the house's period decor. (In fact, we were very amused to see that the furniture in several of the National Trust houses we visited seemed to be in approximately the same condition.) There are no end of beautiful villages, castles, pubs, and restaurants in the area; in fact Bodian Castle is only five miles away, and Battle Abbey only a few miles farther.

    The historic nature of the house and views are amazing. We loved the gardens, pool and tennis court. The downside is the equipment really needs to be modernised. Very old beds, old bedding, sofas uncomfortable etc. watch out as there is no fence around the pool. We also had a lot of scaffolding on one side of the house that wasn't clearly explained before arrival.

    Sorry to say, but Haremere Hall is so desperately in need of renovation that it wasn't a very comfortable stay. There are some serious health and safety issues in the house. The furnishings are old and very tired, and the gardens are scruffy. The pool area needs attention, as does all the paved areas. We arrived to scaffolding, which we hadn't been forewarned of. Okay, this indicates some renovation, but a long way to go!

    This is a lovely old building in a beautiful setting. We had a really good weekend. There was plenty of warning of potential hazards. The main drawback was the lack of an upstairs toilet for the use of the rooms without en-suite facilities. The other was only one set of door keys for a large party. It is very unlikely that we shall have another such time away as we are all getting too old now.

    Whilst the Hall is beautiful and in a lovely location it needs a huge amount of renovation and is not value for money. Two bedrooms had substandard beds..one was a z bed and not suitable for an adult.. One bathroom was unusable and in another the hot tap poured incessantly. The kitchen floor was not clean and though there was a mop there was no dust pan and brush or floor cleaner. There was plenty of equipment once you found it.We enjoyed the tennis court including retrieving balls from the hole in the court where it is subsiding.Both fridges had seen better days so the temperature control was dodgy.
