The detail

Rising magnificently over the beautiful green Sussex landscape, Eastwood Observatory is an imposing and statuesque mansion, architecturally inspired by Greenwich Observatory and now available for groups of 24 or more guests looking for a country house in the South East with luxurious amenities. Boasting staggering views over the Sussex hills and complete with everything that an active and sporty group could possibly need to relax in style, Eastwood Observatory is the ultimate rural getaway for family reunions, weddings and other big social celebrations.

No expense has been spared in refurbishing this remarkable and historic property, which retains all of its original charm and character, with hardwood floors, large windows and delightful features throughout. Stepping into the house is like walking into another world, and you can be guaranteed that everybody in your party will be comfortable.

Outdoors, spend time on the tennis courts with an old friend, or take a dip in the majestic heated pool. Enjoy a game of air hockey or battle your cousins in a table football tournament, and end every day with a long and relaxing soak in the outdoors hot tub. From spending winter evenings snuggled up watching a movie in the cinema room to lengthy summer swims, brunches and hikes around the region, the house and grounds are a real treat in every season, regardless of your idea of the perfect holiday.

Rise first thing in the morning and catch the morning light shining through the trees before taking a solo walk in the grounds with a cup of coffee. Pack a picnic with friends and take a lengthy hike, or spend the day lounging around the pool with cocktails and a book. Whether you head into town to pick up supplies for a celebratory home cooked meal with your whole group or you choose to take advantage of the property's on site chef, Eastwood Observatory is a brilliant location for entertaining your nearest and dearest.

While most groups tend to have more than enough fun just hanging out together in the extraordinary house and grounds, a broad range of activities can be arranged from the comfort of your high-end mansion, from yoga in the grounds to a wine tasting course, stargazing with Herstmonceux Observatory's planetarium director to tennis lessons on your courts. Everything is arranged entirely on your behalf, so all you need do is attend and have fun, and every treat and course is taken by a dedicated expert instructor. More active guests will love the climbing wall which comes right to your door, while the cocktail hour and BBQ evening are guaranteed crowd-pleasers.
