The former home of the chauffeur for Morphews House, this sympathetically updated cottage is a cosy home-from-home base from which to unwind and explore the surrounding countryside and wider rural Sussex.
This property is located in the lands of a country house and is surrounded by 30 acres of grounds, including two ponds, in the village of Burwash. The village itself is small and rural with a popular pub. Within a 30 minute drive are two attractive towns, Lewes to the south and Tunbridge Wells to the north. Lewes has a quirky, artsy feel with many independent shops, a range of places to eat and its own brewery. Tunbridge Wells is an elegant town famous for its Pantiles, a gorgeous Georgian colonnade of shops and restaurants.
This lovely cottage was once the home of the chauffeur to the family who lived in the main house. A few steps lead up to the front door, which opens into the hall of the house. The lounge is a pleasant place to relax with its views across the pond and surrounding fields. This room has an open fire, sofa, TV, DVD player and a selection of family games. The large kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an alcove with kitchen table and seating for six. Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one with a king-size bed and views across the fields, the other with a single bed which is located down two steps off the kitchen with views to the pond. The main bathroom is on this floor too, with a shower over the bath. Steep winding stairs lead to the first floor where there are two further bedrooms. One has a single bed and views to the pond, whilst the other can be made up as either two twin beds or a double; this room has its own TV with DVD player and an en-suite bathroom with hand-held shower over bath.
The cottage benefits from a quiet, private garden with a pond, garden table, benches, chairs and a BBQ. Please beware that, due to the unfenced pond, children must be supervised at all times in the garden. There is parking for two cars.
