About Castlemans Stables West

With a myriad of delightful quaint tea shops and cafes to choose from in nearby Battle, it is possible to while away the hours investigating the history and the legend of the infamous 1066 battle. Browse the antique shops on the pretty streets emanating out from Battle Abbey, in autumn watch out for the firework parades and explore a bygone era at 'Yesterday's World' on the High Street, where a nostalgic trip down memory lane awaits.

Bring your friends or family to this darling stable conversion, green pastures stretch out from the roofed porch where you can sit and watch the children play or take some time out with a good book. This pet friendly accommodation is perfect to enjoy, whilst visiting the magnificent gardens of East Sussex or heading to the beach with a bucket and spade.

The larger coastal town of Hastings is only 15 minutes away by car, perfect to soak up the traditional seaside atmosphere. Wander through the Old Town where there are plenty of English pubs to choose from, offering great live music in the evenings or try the amusements by the beach, have a 'fish and chip dinner' and an ice cream to complete a wonderful day.

If you're looking to retire closer to home, Sedlescombe Golf Club can accommodate golfing enthusiasts at any skill level and 'Green's' restaurant is a perfect way to fill up on hearty local food at the end of the day. Sedlescombe Vineyard provides an excellent day out, explore the vineyard or take a guided tour with wine tasting which can be rounded off with a delicious Ploughmans lunch or afternoon cream tea. The village pub 'The Queens Head' is incredibly charming, welcomes dogs and has great food all within walking distance too.

Carefully renovated to provide outward facing aspects to maximise privacy, this holiday home can be booked independently or in conjunction with its sister property Castlemans Stables East.

"Another lovely 2 weeks spent in this beautiful setting. We love our time here as we did last year. Hope to be back 2020!"

"An enormously comfortable base from which to explore the area. We were struck by the cleanliness of The Stables & how well equipped it was. Rex was particularly pleased with the dog treats. A huge amount to do - we discovered Great Dixter Gardens in the autumn sunshine, Camber Sands, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, excellent food at Webber fish restaurant in Rye, Sissinghurst, Bateman's, the local museum in Battle (most informative) & endless walks in the woods around Blitchling area. As with previous guests a very warm welcome at the Queen's Head; great to have a local pub that welcomes childrens, dogs & produces delicious food! Many Thanks"

"Another lovely few days in your lovely cottage. We were so lucky with the weather which enabled us to visit Scotney Castle, Bodium Castle and Battle Abbey in lovely warm sunshine. Thoroughly enjoyed a day mooching around Rye and had lunch in a great tearoom. We also enjoyed two meals in the Queens head one at lunchtime and one in the evening, will hopefully be back soon. We had mum with us this time who also thoroughly enjoyed her stay too. Thanks also for the lovely hamper a very welcome treat. All in all a great relaxing break thank you. xx"

Val, Darren & Margaret

"Thank you for a lovely few days - had a lovely time and it was like home from home - we wanted for nothing - everything thought of! Thank you also for the great hamper and dog biscuits - much appreciated. We visited Hastings (recommend old town) - recommend Battle Abbey - which was very interesting. Did the steam train from Tenterden to Bodum Castle and back again. Also went to Winchelsea to see Spike Milligan's resting place and then onto Rye. Recommend the Queens Head - lovely food and dog friendly. Thank you!"
