About Josephine Wadman
A country girl who loves to travel to new places and experience new cultures. I have worked and travelled all over the world and stayed in some wonderful and hospitable places. Highlights were working on a Dude Ranch in Colorado, trekking in Nepal and backpacking down the coast of Vietnam. I have a horse and love to ride, I'm a beginner cross-fitter, I like running and generally being outside if the sun is shining!
Why Josephine Wadman chose Polegate
I now have a lovely property for rent and I only hope that I can be as welcoming and accommodating as some of the people I met on my travels! This warm and welcoming farmhouse is perfect for friends or a family who want to explore the gems of Sussex from the British countryside. And why not start by enjoying the 800 acres of land that the farm sits on, equipped with a lake and a small reservoir!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
It's location is such that you feel completely tucked away in the countryside, yet Eastbourne is only 20 minutes by car and Brighton 45 minutes by car. The South Downs National Park is 25 minutes by car and London is 1 1/2 hours on the train direct from Polegate to London Victoria. Knockhatch adventure park, Druisllas zoo and Sharnfold farm are all close by and perfect for children. There really is something for everyone and it is all so accessible, from such a fantastic location. Step outside the door for views of the south downs, horses grazing and tucked behind the trees, our reservoir, where you can be the only one fishing.

Lovely Cottage in the Sussex Countryside
Everything was perfect, the cottage, the location, and the facilities. Jo, our host was very easy to communicate with and helpful when we needed extra days. Highly recommend this cottage.
Perfect spot for exploring the countryside and local areas of interest. The property is an ideal place to stay, and Jo ensures you receive a warm welcome and you have all you need.
This property is situated in a lovely area for walking and is only a 10 minute drive into Eastbourne. We were really impressed with the attention to detail in the property, it was beautifully decorated, very comfortable with lots of niceties such as tea/coffee and milk left in the fridge. There's a dishwasher and washing maching not mentioned in the spec. The garden is also a lovely place to sit and relax in. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night!
Lovely stay with everything we needed for a comfortable weekend.
Erholsam und gut eingerichtet
Das Haus ist sehr gut eingerichtet und ideal gelegen für die Besichtigung der Umgebung. Die Farm, auf welcher sich das Haus befindet, ist - ausser ein paar Pferden - inaktiv.
Ruhig gelegen: kein Strassenlärm, auch die Windräder hört man nicht.
Kurz: alles bestens! Herzlichen Dank und gerne wieder.
Feel free to walk on our in hand farm of 800 acres; discover our beautiful lake which you can swim in and fish in our reservoir. The farm has easy access to the Cuckoo Trail, a 14 mile surfaced path through the Sussex countryside which mostly traffic free and is a safe route for walkers and cyclists of all ages.
There are lots of other activities just a 20 minute drive away. Head down to the seaside and visit the South Downs National Park, home to the picturesque Seven Sisters and Cuckmere River. Have a pint in some delightful pubs tucked away down country lanes, browse the antique shops in Lewes and stop for afternoon tea in the quintessentially English village of Alfriston.
