About The Marlpits

Peacefully nestled within acres of parkland on a private country estate in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming and picturesque cottage offers a true countryside retreat.

From the moment you pull into the gravel driveway, you are greeted by the charm of this beautiful cottage, with its exterior being nothing short of a picture you would find on a postcard. Step through the wooden cottage door bordered by pretty climbing roses, into the immaculately presented interior, which perfectly blends modern cottage living with character and charm. From the oak beamed ceilings, to the cosy open inglenook fireplaces, reclaimed floorboards and hand picked antique furnishings. Unwind in one of two sitting areas, relax in front of the impressive open fireplace with a good book or relax in the larger of the two and take in the views through the double set of french doors across the beautifully manicured gardens. Breakfast can be prepared in the attractively finished, marble topped kitchen, with the dining table carefully placed looking out through the bi-folding doors to the decked terrace and gardens beyond.

Cleverly divided into two wings with each staircase leading up to two delightful bedrooms, each with their own style and character, this cottage is ideal for two families looking to holiday together, as well as a family, groups of friends or couples looking for added privacy. The Marlpits exquisitely designed bathrooms are sure to impress, with a regal roll top bath the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring.

Beautifully manicured gardens, planted with colourful flowers and mature trees offer an idyllic spot to fully enjoy the peace of this enviably countryside location, with only the sound of the sheep in the field beyond being heard. Warm summer evenings can be spent on the patio, sipping on a glass of wine with friends or enjoying memorable family meals al fresco.

If you can bare to draw yourself away from this truly beautiful cottage, then the historic streets of the hilltop town of Rye lie just a 10 minute drive away, lined with a tempting choice of independent shops, art galleries, restaurants and tea rooms. For those who would rather explore on foot, what better location than in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with countryside walks on your doorstep, and a choice of local country pubs within 2 miles.
