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.
