A STUNNING five-bed country bolthole that would make the ultimate staycation retreat has hit the market for £1.2million.
The Sussex Bell House used to be one of the oldest pubs in Surrey, lying on the outskirts of Haslemere where it was opened as a tavern in 1837.
It has since been transformed into an idyllic grade II listed home, complete with nearly two acres of land, a cellar and plenty of space for entertaining.
The former pub still has many character features running throughout, with ancient wooden beams giving it a cosy feel.
The farmhouse style kitchen comes complete with Aga, while a cellar downstairs allows for plenty of storage.
The property has five bedrooms in total, with an en-suite bathroom and dressing area for the master suite and an en-suite shower room for another.
There are also three main reception rooms, each with large fireplaces for keeping warm in the winter.
Potential buyers will be able to get to London Waterloo in under an hour, making it ideal for a quick getaway or a hassle free commute.
They will also be surrounded by country walks, bridleways and the South Downs National Park.
The home's gardens outside span 1.91 acres in total, with views stretching out towards the South Downs National Park.
The garden's boundary runs deep into woodland, while closer to the house, there is a barbecue and terrace for entertaining.
There is plenty of room for guests as the front of the house has space for off road parking for several cars – as well as a drive leading to a double garage.
Hamptons International describe the home as "beautiful" and are expecting a huge amount of interest.
