Redlands farmhouse sits at the end of Redlands Lane to the west of the A24, at the foot of Redlands wood. Built in the sixteenth century it originally had three bays. It has several later additions. The farm also has an early sixteenth century barn, an eighteenth century milking parlour and a nineteenth century granary.

Recorded as a farm since at least the sixteenth century, it was owned by the Sondes family in the seventeenth and during the late eighteenth it was part of the great Bury Hill estate.
