The Mount is a magnificent 500 year old Tudor house, reputed to have been built as Lord Guldeford's summer residence. The detached house is full of character with oak beams and lovely stone, tile and oak flooring, some uneven and sloping floors with some wonderful nooks and crannies to discover. The house is well appointed and comfortably furnished in keeping with its period. With the large enclosed garden and lovely views there's no need to leave. East Guldeford is on the edge of Romney Marsh, Located just 1 mile from the Ancient town of Rye and 3 miles to Camber Sands. There is a wealth of good walks from the property and cycle routes. Just across the road there is a cycle path leading to Camber Sands and there are footpaths adjacent to the house. There is a direct Marsh rail link...The Mount is a magnificent 500 year old Tudor house, reputed to have been built as Lord Guldeford's summer residence.

About the neighborhood
Hastings is synonymous with 1066 when William the Conqueror and his Norman army defeated King Harold at Battle. William built an Abbey in the picturesque town of Battle to celebrate his conquest and left a legacy of Norman Churches and Castles throughout the South East. Of particular note are the beautiful moated castles at Herstmonceaux and Bodiam. Other attractions in the area are the gorgeous gardens at Great Dixter and the intriguing follies built by Mad Jack Fuller at Brightling. Rye and Burwash are just two of the many enchanting towns and villages to explore in this part of Sussex that is so rich in history and natural charm.
How to get there
The Mount is approximately 1 mile outside of Rye on the A259 Folkestone Road and approximately 25 minutes off the M20 junction 10 at Ashford.
