The nearby Forest Way Country Park runs from Groombridge through to East Grinstead and can be enjoyed by walkers, cylists and horse-riders. Groombridge is within easy reach of mainline stations at Eridge (approx 2.4 miles) and Tunbridge Wells (approx 4.5 miles), which also provides comprehensive shopping and recreational amenities. The M25 (via A21) and Gatwick Airport lie within 16 and 18 miles respectively. There are a number of well regarded private and state schools in the area including the village primary school Groombridge St Thomas’ CoE (Ofsted rated Outstanding).

A door leads from the utility room, which has a further range of units and spaces for a washing machine and tumble dryer, into the rear garden.
On the first floor there is a landing with doors leading off to four bedrooms, study, and a family bathroom. A hatch from the landing leads into the loft which has the potential for conversion (subject to all necessary consents).
