Situated in the Sussex village of Sedlescombe, in the heart of 1066 country, this wonderful cottage is full of charm and character. Furnished with warm, contemporary country-style sofas complete with a log burning stove, it's the ideal spot to relax and lose yourself in a good book; simply unwind and take time out from the bustle of daily life.
The pretty enclosed patio garden is the perfect place to drink your morning coffee and the ample living space alongside the dining area provides guests the chance to enjoy a peaceful, undisturbed dinner together.
With plenty to do on the doorstep, from a vineyard tour at Sedlescombe Estate to a round of golf or dinner at the local club, there is enough to entertain a weekend away or a maybe a longer stay in the area. The local village pub, 'The Queens Head' is incredibly charming, they welcome dogs and have an excellent menu, it's also within walking distance; a recommendable destination for an evening.
Enjoy a day at the seaside and venture down to Hastings, a traditional fishing town rich in history of smuggling. The Jerwood gallery is a wonderful place in which to admire art, with exhibitions that have included Quentin Blake, Lowry and many others. Check the 'what's on' section for workshops, a great way to entertain the kids for the day in a creative environment. With plenty of amusements, fish and chips and ice cream, you can relive childhood memories.
Or if nature and wildlife draw your interest, this area of East Sussex is rich in historic buildings and gardens to visit such as Bodiam Castle, Scotney Castle, Batemans and Lamb House. The historic town of Battle is a 5 minute drive away, where you can visit the famous Abbey and spend the afternoon browsing the independent shops or enjoy the cafes.
Closeby are beautifully renovated Castlemans Stables East and Castlemans Stables West. With their outward facing aspects to maximise privacy, making these properties perfect for larger groups.
"We have never been to East Sussex before. We realy enjoyed ourselves. Could not do all the things we would have liked. But that leaves us a return visit. Many Thanks. Ron and Clare Baker from DEVON. XXXXXX"June
"A very well appointed cottage with good quality furniture and equipment. We had a very pleasant week here in June; very peaceful and comfortable. A good location for visiting many of the National Trust and other sites in Sussex. If you enjoy good food then the Curlew restaurant (about 5 miles North) is worth a visit."Peter & Carolyn Lambert- June
