About La Gallina

If you are looking for a cute and quirky cottage with a beautiful rustic finish yet with all the modern comforts, step into the calm oasis of La Gallina. For years it was hidden away behind mature trees in this quiet part of the Weald, however it has been carefully renovated into a cosy and inviting romantic getaway.

As you enter the door into this cottage in Sussex it reveals a large open plan sitting and dining room, with a huge sofa to curl up on and smart dining area in front of a full picture window looking out over your private garden. A cosy log burner, wood carvings, colourful artwork and animal skins draping the chairs completes the unique, warm ambiance of this room. Behind a door from the main room the bathroom can be found; with Victorian blue patterned fittings, an enamelled roll top bath and vintage brass shower. This is the cutest shabby chic bathing experience you could wish for. A short hallway brings you to the cosy, well-equipped country kitchen.

Up the steep staircase leads you into the cosy attic bedroom. Through the double-aspect windows, the sloping pine-panelled ceiling reflects a kaleidoscope of light into the room.

Outside, the semi-wild garden offers a lovely combination of spaces - a gravel patio area in front of the house with vintage table and chairs, a lawned area perfect for reading, dozing and picnics, and a large space left wild for roaming through the long grass and ferns. A fire pit style BBQ completes this rustic natural haven.

"Had a lovely stay at La Gallina. Cosy, Quirky, little cottage with nice views. So nice to be close to nature! The accommodation was very comfortable and we really enjoyed having a log burner. It was lovely to watch the birds from the picture window and we were lucky enough to see some deer walking through the garden. We enjoyed walks through the forest and exploring the footpaths close to the cottage. Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay!"
