  • Charming chocolate-box cottage located in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Originally built around 1450 but offers light and bright accommodation for couples
  • Bistro table and chairs in the cottage garden, perfect for summer stays
Property code: 83845

Lovingly refurbished, this picturesque cottage boasts light and airy accommodation mixed with traditional charm, the perfect getaway for couples. Coastal resorts and countryside are both within easy reach.

This quaint country cottage is Grade II listed, dating back to 1450 and conveniently located on the main road in the heart of the village of Sedlescombe. It is within a short stroll of the 15th-century gastropub, village shop with the post office, and an antique shop. Keen walkers and their dog will enjoy exploring the many footpaths over the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and for those looking to explore slightly further afield, the towns of Hastings and Rye are both a 5-mile drive and have much to offer visitors, from the host of quirky antique shops and cobbled streets in Rye to the beachfront and fresh fish stalls in Hastings. Royal Tunbridge Wells is nearby for excellent shopping opportunities and historic Battle is a great place to visit with its ruined abbey and battlefields.

 You enter this cosy cottage into the welcoming hallway, with space for dropping off coats and shoes, and the lounge can be found to the right of the front door. This room is comfortably furnished with a sofa and armchair where you can get comfy around the gas flame-effect fire and put a film on the Smart TV with DVD. The dining table is here too with comfortable seating for two to enjoy meals together after a day exploring the area. Continue to the kitchen, where the low beamed ceiling means it has retained much of its original charm whilst offering everything the cook needs, including an electric double oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washer/dryer. The stable backdoor opens out from the kitchen onto an enclosed cottage garden. The bathroom is located on the ground floor, with a hand-held shower over the bath and WC. Narrow, steep cottage-style stairs lead to the first floor where there is a pretty double bedroom with a view over the front garden.

Heading outside, there is a typical cottage-style garden, which has a bistro table and chairs for al fresco meals, and the rear garden gate gives access to the private parking area for one car.

Well equipped cottage with good off-road parking and garden space, dog friendly. Very helpful owner. Great location for striking off to Rye, Battle, Hastings and wider area, abundance of National Trust properties close to hand. Steep stairs common to small cottages but good hand railing assists. Would be happy to re- book.

Beautiful little cottage well maintained and in a great location. A real home from home with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The cottage is full of character. Stairs are steep typical of a property of this style and age but might not be ideal for those with limited mobility. Our little dog did not want to use them !!
