This pretty cottage is full of rustic charm and makes a great getaway for couples or families offering easy access to the historic towns of Winchelsea & Rye, also just a short drive from the local beaches at Winchelsea, Pett Level and Camber Sands.

Boasting a desirable location near the ancient town of Winchelsea, this cute country cottage is perfect for couples and small families who want to get back to nature with long rambles in the countryside. The area is crossed by a network of footpaths and is part of the National Cycle Network, making it a top choice for keen walkers and cyclists.

Kick off your muddy boots in the large porch before stepping into the cosy lounge, complete with striking wall art and plants. Settle back to watch TV or flick through a magazine in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire. The traditional farmhouse kitchen is a fantastic space to enjoy home-cooked meals around the wooden table in front of the original Aga (available September-April). There's also a separate utility room that doubles as a sunroom where you can read or enjoy a coffee overlooking the pretty courtyard garden. On balmy summer evenings, set the table outside for a sizzling BBQ in the sunshine. And every morning, wake up to lovely countryside views from the upstairs bedrooms.

Winchelsea Beach is just over a mile from the cottage, and a wonderful place to escape the hubbub of city life. Enjoy long bracing walks along the pebbled seafront before grabbing a bite to eat in the cafe. Head to the medieval town of Rye (3 miles) to find charming independent shops, antiques and restaurants offering freshly caught seafood. Other options for fantastic days out in East Sussex include Bodiam Castle (12.5 miles), Great Dixter House and Gardens (10.5 miles) and Hastings (10 miles) with its lovely old town and pier.

Eastwoods is a lovely cottage in an ideal location. Spotlessly clean with all the comforts of home. Perfectly located its a 10 minute walk to the friendly New Inn pub in Winchelsea and a 10 minute drive into Rye.

Eastwoods is a family friendly cottage. Visited with daughter and 2 year old grandson and the owner had thought of everything you could need. Place was very clean, loads of little extras even in the covid time, she was also nearby if you had any queries but left you alone. Definitely need a car or liked a long walk to the beach. Lovely outside spacRead moree with seating and lots of other extras. Would definitely recommend this cottage. Also some good takeaway places in Rye that deliver to the cottage. Hide

A very pleasant semi-detached cottage in a quiet village. A good, central base for visiting the East Sussex coast.

Very clean cottage with everything we needed. Winchelsea is a beautiful village and the local beach was perfect and so close. The cottage is set back from the road so noise is minimal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It had everything we needed for our week away. The Rye and Wincheslea area is picturesque and the local beach readily accessible by both car and bicycle and not as busy as those slightly further away. Would definitely consider another visit.

Well equipped spacious property a short walk from the village centre. The property was very warm with plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean. Despite being near a main road very peaceful. Many attractions within easy travelling distance of the property. Made to feel very welcome by the owner and her father who lives in the adjoining property.

We had a fantastic week at Eastwoods Cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and homely with a well equipped kitchen. It's a short walk into Winchelsea, a short drive to the beach or into Rye and it made a great base for exploring East Sussex. Communication with the owner was great. We definitely made ourselves at home here and would stay again.

The welcomme of the owner was wonderful with a bouque of flowers, scones with clotted cream and a very clean and well equipped kitchen. The Estwood Cottage was a lovely and very nice place to calm down and it is a good place to start activities at the nearby beaches of Camper or Winchelsea. We recommend the cottage without any limitation.

Such a lovely clean, well equipped cottage. The gardens and surrounding area are lovely and the patio garden a great sun trap for eating outside, with its own herb patch. Had such a relaxing time with my family. Thank you.
