Outside the formal gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature yew and beech hedges creating individual garden rooms. A pretty woodland area provides a haven for wildlife, as does the pond, and a detached brick outbuilding currently provides two stores and a kennel but has good potential for conversion, subject to planning consent. The house has around 2.2 acres.
Sempstead House is located near the pretty villages, and facilities, of Ewhurst Green and Northiam and Etchingham main line station offers services to London.
