Coachman's Cottage - - - enlarge image
eMail from: Deborah Richards - 31 July 2014

The postcard of an unknown cottage at Iping, ref- sdm235, is in fact Coachman's Cottage which is situated at the entrance gates of the drive to Iping House. These gates were featured in a painting by Ivon Hitchens who made Iping house hotel his home for a while after being bombed out in London and prior to moving to Lavington.
This cottage used to be home to a large pack of hounds and was converted into two semi detached cottages in the early 70s. It was bought from Mrs Edwards who bred white poodles there in the 1960s. The old kennels are still there.
The larger building on the left is the side view of the Victorian wing of Iping house which was demolished in 60s, it was high on the bank above the remaining house which is beside the bridge.
My parents have lived next door at the Pheasantry since 1967.

Gravelroots publish historical information, as presented to us, in good faith. The authors of researched family history have invariably attempted to create an accurate account or no purpose would have been served in researching it. Although we do seek to ensure that information contained throughout the website is accurate it is impractical to check the accuracy of all the information contained therein. As with all historical research, you should check other sources for corresponding data, rather than rely on any one source.
