This charming holiday cottage in Sedlescombe is ideally located in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is 7 miles north of Hastings and 3 miles east of Battle, roughly in the centre of the District of Rother and to the east of the county of East Sussex.The central part of the village is a Conservation Area. It is close to many walks and bridle paths and offers a peaceful location to explore both nearby countryside and towns. The village pubs in Westfield (within walking distance across farmland) and one in Sedlescome are recommended.
The historic Cinque Port town of Rye in the East Sussex countryside is perched on a hill, overlooking the River Rother and Romney Marsh, this ancient town is the sort of place you thought existed only in your imagination.
With enchanting cobbled streets, medieval church and beautifully preserved historic houses from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, Rye is almost suspended in time and has a uniquely unhurried atmosphere. Compact enough to discover the key places of interest over a week-end but with plenty of secret treasures to entice you to stay much longer and to return again.
The attractive town of Battle a few miles away gets its name from the Battle of Hastings, which was fought between Harold the Saxon king and William the Conqueror in 1066. The battle was so significant it changed the course of English history. The town grew up around the Abbey of St Martin which was built by William the Conqueror after the battle. It is said that William vowed that should he win the battle he would build such an abbey. The abbey was built between 1070 and 1094, and the high altar is believed to have been placed on the spot where Harold fell. Today the Abbey ruins and the battlefield are cared for by English Heritage and are well worth a visit. The imposing Abbey gatehouse built circa 1338 can be seen as you look down the length of the High Street.
Nearby Hastings was attacked by the French during the Hundred Years War, and in 1377, a second attack all but destroyed the town. The Old Town's architecture ranges from Medieval to Victorian. One of the oldest buildings, the Court House is believed to have been built around 1450. There are ancient churches and the Old Town Hall, which now houses a museum. There are lots of passages and narrow streets (called twittens) that are worth exploring that go off the Old Town High Street. There are cafes, bars and restaurants that add to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the Old Town.
Hastings has the largest on-shore fishing fleet in Europe that is launched from a beach, which is known as the Stade. The Castle built by William the Conqueror but now in ruins is at the top of West Hill and offer wonderful views of the area and Channel. The steepest funicular railway in Britain takes passengers from the Old Town up to the Castle.
There have been many famous and illustrious residents and visitors to the town, which include J M F Turner, Beatrix Potter and Charles Dickens. The Old Town and beach are important locations in the popular television series 'Foyle's War' starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks.
Why not visit the recently opened Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, situated right on the seafront and nestled between the famous Hastings fishing huts and the historic old town. The Jerwood Gallery, little sister of the influential Jerwood Space in London, houses some of the most exciting paintings produced in the 20th and 21st centuries as well as supporting young artists through its charitable arm, the Jerwood Foundation. It is less than 15 minutes by car from Oaklands Farm Cottage.
Amongst the interesting places to visit is the nearby Carr Taylor Vineyard, a beautiful vineyard which is planted on gentle slopes on the southern edge of the Sussex Weald, itself an area of outstanding natural beauty.
