About Shepherd's Cottage

Shepherd's Cottage is a beautiful 18th Century stable conversion, deep in the East Sussex coastal countryside and close to Pett Level, Winchelsea Beach, Rye, Hastings and Camber Sands. On a relaxed working farm with sheep and horses in the fields - and the occasional chicken popping its head round the door to say hello - this is an excellent setting to escape the city and enjoy a romantic break.

The wood-clad porch leads you into the open plan living area, with a modern country kitchen and a wonderful farmhouse table for lazy breakfasts and romantic dinners. The sitting area offers a cosy sofa to curl up in front of the fire together, and finish that book you have been wanting to do for too long. Through a stable door you step into the courtyard garden; with a large wooden table and chairs this is a perfect quiet spot to relax in the evening sun with a barbecue and cold drink.

The comfortable bedroom looks out over the farm courtyard and has a double bed, chests of drawers, and hangers set on chunky iron pegs as old as the stable itself. The en-suite shower room completes the carefully considered layout.

The interiors have been carefully styled to complement the history and location, with beautiful touches to ensure your stay is comfortable and contemporary. A special blend incorporating modern conveniences such as a dishwasher, washing machine (useful for long walks over the fields) and luxurious underfloor heating, with ancient oak beams, rustic furniture and a gorgeous wood burning stove.

What makes this area
So special...

For days out you are spoiled for choice! Pett is in 1066 country and the whole area is crammed with walks and delights to discover for all. Within walking distance by road or a stroll through the fields there are 2 pubs - the 16th Century Two Sawyers (0.5m), and the Royal Oak (1m). The beaches and cliffs of Fairlight Cove and Pett Level are only 2 miles from the cottage, and Winchelsea Beach is 5 miles (also offering fishing lakes). There is fantastic bird watching around the Pett Ponds and the Royal Military Canal, and also at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve (8m). As well as Rye, also a short drive away is the vibrant, historic seaside town of Hastings. You will find all the shops you need in old Hastings with narrow streets called The Twittens, packed with cafes, quirky shops and restaurants where you can enjoy a morning coffee in the sun or browse the interesting stores. For those a little more adventurous, windsurfing and kitesurfing can be enjoyed at Camber Sands (lessons available) - and Pett Level for those with experience.
