My husband and I stayed at the Highlands for our 4 year anniversary and had a wonderful, romantic break away from London.
We settled in immediately and basked in the last summer sunshine in the beautiful secluded garden whilst sipping tea and catching up on the newspapers.
In the evening, we treated ourselves to a meal at Ambrette, a fantastic Indian fusion restaurant in Rye, followed by cocktails at the George Hotel opposite. We then trundled back to the Highlands to relax infront on the open fire and lounge on the comfy sofas.
Friends joined us on Saturday, of which we spent playing tennis and picnicking on the freshly mowed lawn. We also went to the seaside, only 20 minutes away by car. Returning to the house we enjoyed the jacuzzi before sitting down for dinner in the large dining room.
The rain came down on Sunday so we decided to spend the morning playing boardgames (we found scrabble and boggle in the cupboard) and then we went to the independant cinema in Hawkhurst followed by more lounging infront of the fireplace watching Downton Abbey and eating cheese.
All in all, a fantastic weekend in a beautiful setting. Gorgeous greenery everywhere and a delightful farm down the road.
I'd highly recommend the Highlands (for couples, families as well as groups of friends) and plan to go there again.

I stayed in this house with a group of old friends this time last year and we all absolutely loved it. So much so that we have just re-booked to go again in a few weeks' time. The house has a really cosy feel but at the same time enough space that even with a large group of us we never felt on top of one another. The surrounding garden is lovely and the location perfect for getting to the coast or to Rye, though we were mostly just happy to stay at home and enjoy being in such a lovely old family home. Can't wait to go back!
