About The Highlands

This self catering holiday home in Sussex is a truly comfortable property n the ridge above the historic smugglers town of Rye. The owners have thought of everything to make your family holiday in Sussex one to remember.

The Highlands is a large Victorian holiday house with spacious rooms, light streams in through the bay windows with the most stunning views of the surrounding Sussex countryside towards Rye. Having recently been updated with a stylish new kitchen and new bathrooms, it is a great place to stay for a short break or longer holiday.

This holiday home has a great garden which completely surrounds the self catering holiday house with a hard tennis court at one end and lots of parking on the driveway - a fabulous place for children to play. The south facing brick paved terrace is a lovely sun trap with seating and a barbeque to while away those summer days in the Sussex sunshine.

This is an ideal self catering holiday home, close to the sea with the space to ensure a happy time is had by all with plenty of room for everyone to unwind.

"Beautiful cottage. Perfect weekend. Highly recommended."

June 2015

"We had a brilliant stay at The Highlands Iden. My elderly parents were able to access everything easily due to the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. We will definitely consider returning to this house or looking at your other properties."

June 2013

"Thanks once again - we had a lovely time at the cottage last weekend and the weather on Saturday was beautiful. The kids loved the tennis court!"

Catherine C

"We had a LOVELY weekend at your lovely house! We were, of course blessed with beautiful weather and we all really enjoyed sitting in the garden and playing a bit of tennis. Also we had a very good meal at The Bell with the very friendly new owners. It was also so nice to be somewhere with old furnishings rather than IKEA everywhere! Thank you!"

Laurie and family

"Very comfortable and well equipped house."

Mrs B, Sept 2010

"We were very impressed with your customer care."
