It is all set in gardens, paddocks and woodland with further outbuildings including a greenhouse, workshop/store and under-cover garaging.

Ewhurst and Bodiam were historically one of the South-East’s main hop-growing areas, primarily growing hops for Guinness, hence the number of oast houses in the surrounding area. To the south-west of Staplecross lies the historic town of Battle, site of the Battle of Hastings, where William, Duke of Normandy, defeated King Harold II to become William I in 1066. Historically, Staplecross was part of the Battle Abbey estate.
