Lovingly refurbished, this picturesque cottage boasts light and airy accommodation mixed with traditional charm. Just a short walk from the village pub and other amenities makes this a great base
This quaint country cottage is conveniently located on the main road in the heart of the village of Brede, with easy access to local bus routes and its cosy pub which produces and sells its own fresh bread every day, as well as offering take away fish and chips alongside their usual bar menu. Also worth a visit are the fascinating and beautifully restored steam water pumps, The Giants of Brede. Keen walkers will enjoy exploring the many footpaths that cris cross the High Weald AONB and for those looking to explore slightly further afield, the towns of Hastings and Rye are both a five-mile drive and have much to offer visitors, from the host of quirky independent shops in Rye to the beachfront and fresh fish stalls in Hastings.
As soon as you arrive at this picket-fenced cottage you will feel as if you have arrived in the heart of the countryside. As you enter this cosy cottage the lounge can be found to the right of the front door. This room is comfortably furnished with two sofas collected around the inglenook fireplace with open-fire, as well as the Smart TV, Netflix and DVD for quiet nights in. Continue to the kitchen, where the low beam ceiling means it has retained much of its original charm whilst offering everything the cook needs, including electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The dining table is here too with comfortable seating for four. The backdoor opens out from the kitchen onto an enclosed courtyard. The main bathroom is located on the ground floor, with hand-held shower over bath and WC (please note there is limited headroom above the bath). Narrow steep stairs lead to the first floor where there are two bedrooms: a double and a twin, that complete the cottage.
Outside there is a typical cottage-style courtyard garden, which has a picnic table for al fresco meals and a BBQ for guests’ use. The back gate gives access to the village and there is roadside parking across the road from the cottage on the village green.
