The property is set in this idyllic hamlet with just a handful of other houses and with its own church. There are delightful walks onto the open countryside all around. Folkington (pronounced Fo'ington) is less than 5 mins from the main London line to Victoria, making this an ideal family home for commuters or a perfect weekend retreat. The nearby village of Berwick is very conveniently situated within easy reach of the A27 and also enjoys the benefit of a mainline railway station, a Post Office store, petrol station, and a public house with beer garden. Arlington Reservoir is within a 5 minute walk of Berwick village. Approximately 10 miles distant is the historic county town of Lewes with major supermarkets including Waitrose and Tesco along with many individual or specialist shops.
