PostSubject: History od Bolebroke   Sun Jun 21, 2009 2:00 pm

Bolebroke Castle at Hartfield, the village made famous by Pooh bear, was built around 1480 and is the earliest brick built building in Sussex.

Henry VIII used Bolebroke when he went hunting for wild boar and venison in the nearby Ashdown Forest. Anne Boleyn, who lived at Hever Castle 5 miles away was courted by Henry VIII from there.

Set in a stunningly beautiful location on a 30 acre estate away from main roads and noise where pheasant and deer roam the meadows and woodlands.

Each season provides its own beauty - in Springtime the carpets of daffodils and bulbs, the rhododendrons of May/June, the mantles of water lilies on the lakes in July/August and the turning of the Virginia creeper to red on the castle and the autumn tints of September/October.

The castle has been loved and cared for through the centuries and has a wealth of history having been owned by the Earls and Dukes of Dorset.

There are many fine rooms with original beamed ceilings and wood panelling. Everywhere in the castle is 16th century furniture and tapestries depicting scenes of the period.

The Elizabethan staircase carved from solid oak is one of the finest in existence.
