New House Farm Country Retreat is the perfect rural, accessible setting to host a wide variety of inspirational retreats and workshops, including yoga, pilates and fitness camps, through to transformational and wellbeing escapes.
We are also the perfect setting for a food based and cookery weekend, being surrounded by some of the country’s finest produce, and having high end catering and dining facilities, as well as many ways of smoking, curing and brining produce.
On the East Sussex/Kent border, we are just one hour from London, and 3 minutes’ drive from the local village railway station. To come here is to enjoy a pure and authentic countryside experience, whilst based in your own private estate with luxury accommodation, heated outdoor swimming pool, elevated hot tub with stunning views across the valleys of the High Weald, and many more facilities to enhance your stay.
We respect the grounds and environment here as home to an incredible array of plants and other wildlife, and have worked hard to make it a peaceful space for our guests – with many different areas to discover and relax in – whilst staying true to the nature and history of the location.
The Main Space
We have a heated swimming pool which is available for guests.
Please get in touch with us directly to enquire about use or exclusive hire. Separate T&Cs apply.
(Please note – access to the swimming pool is subject to availability)
There is also an indoor swimming pool in the nearby Dale Hill Golf Club and Hotel.
The elevated hot tub is located at the top of the fields – with its breathtaking long views over the valleys, it is quite simply, one of the greatest ways to relax there is.
Your Time Here
As well as the heated pool, hot tub and other relaxation areas, there are 5 different public footpaths leading directly from the grounds, down through the valleys, and also up through the woodlands, out towards endless opportunities to explore this ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ (AONB).
Whilst you’re here, you may also encounter our much loved, rescued animal friends, and alpacas. They have grown up here with us, and have made many special memories for our guests. Don’t underestimate how wonderful a hug with an orphaned, bottle fed lamb can be.

Country Code & Safety
We want our guests to enjoy this rural escape in safety, and welcome you to enjoy the farm’ s grounds and gardens, being aware that this is the great outdoors, and reasonable caution needs to be taken in such an untouched environment. Please be aware of any privacy signs, and realise the care needed to be taken when near water. Any areas of water risks are clearly marked. (Our email Welcome Pack – also supplied in each suite documents all safety notices)
We also have completely free roaming chickens, cats and children. This is a peaceful destination where we need to look out for each other. We also have a couple of friendly sheep and a mini horse who are in their own paddock. We ask you to take care when driving on the farm, no faster than 5 miles per hour, for the safety of all who are living or staying here, and actively encourage walking and cycling as ways to explore the local area – we provide many walking maps and information on local sites of interest to visit as part of your experience here.
