Sitting in the idyllic village of Winchelsea with its picturesque streets, this pretty whitewashed cottage is ideally situated within minutes' walk from the locally renowned village pub 'The New Inn' and from the village shop that is fantastically stocked with tempting local produce such as homemade jams, wine and beers from local vineyards and breweries, and treats such as homemade sausage rolls and pastries.
Well presented, this double fronted cottage provides a comfortable and homely interior, with leather sofas in the sitting room grouped around the gas fireplace giving a lovely cosy feel to the room. With a very well equipped kitchen with space to relax and enjoy a meal after a busy day sightseeing or at the beach. Winchelsea Cottage offers three bedrooms, with the master affording views over the village and across the churchyard.
The amply sized garden provides the perfect space to relax in the warmer months, ideal for a family game or just to simply sit and read a book or enjoy a refreshing glass of wine after a day of exploring.
For those looking to explore, the charming historic town of Rye can be reached within a 10 minute drive, with its charming cobbled streets ideal for wandering, and if you want to make the most of being near the coast beautiful Winchelsea beach is just a few minutes' drive away. Close to the 1066 walking route, this is truly a walkers haven, with miles of scenic countryside to discover on foot.
All in all this would be a comfortable and relaxing Sussex holiday home in a wonderful location with so much to see and do!
