About Coldharbour House

Coldharbour is situated in almost total seclusion yet only half a mile south east of the village of Bletchingley. The property and its grounds extend to some 14 acres set on the side of a hill facing South and include mature woodland, formal gardens and fields. Several mature trees and shrubs were planted in the 1920’s by the then owners and their work continues to be developed and enhanced by the present owners.

The landscaped gardens extend to some 1½ acres and enjoy breathtaking 180-degree views to virtually every corner to the South Downs and beyond. To the back of the house, a York stone and lawned terrace is fringed by a brick retaining wall, colourful borders of fuschias, lavender and wisteria. From there twin steps with crescent-shaped pathways edged by yew hedges lead past a large cotinus and fig tree to the lower lawn and herbaceous borders. The paved area extends to the east side of the house and leads to a further lawn beautifully secluded with a wide variety of colourful trees and shrubs including a Canadian maple, azaleas, potentillas, hypericum and rhododendrons. From there three different routes lead to the lower level. Gravel pathways and lawns provide very pleasant walkways through the grounds. A pergola supports mature wisterias, vine, jasmine and honeysuckle.

To the South of the gardens are grazing fields, three stables and a tennis court.
