Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside within a short drive of the coast, this wonderful holiday cottage has been stylishly designed throughout to provide a fantastic getaway for families.

A countryside haven in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this spacious property is perfect for family get-togethers. Forge House sits on the ancient site of the iron master’s house and offers a peaceful rural setting nestled amongst fields between the villages of Etchingham and Burwash. Enjoy scenic walks from the doorstep along local footpaths or a family day out at nearby Batemans, the former home of Rudyard Kipling or Bodiam Castle, both National Trust properties. Keen gardeners will enjoy the beautiful local gardens on offer including King John’s Nursery, Pashley Manor Gardens and Great Dixter, and for some family fun, head to the Sussex coast with a wide choice of beaches at Bexhill, Hastings and Camber Sands.

Enter the property into the ample and welcoming hallway where you are greeted with lush views of the garden and the countryside from the kitchen/diner beyond. Turn left and head into the spacious lounge where you will find a large, comfortable corner sofa and plenty of relaxed seating. Snuggle up in front of the cosy wood burner on chilly evenings and enjoy watching a film on the Smart TV. For a more intimate space, turn right from the front door into the atmospheric and opulent “Woodland” room. Head back through the hallway and into the kitchen/diner with its fantastic open aspect and bi-fold doors that lead directly into the garden. The kitchen offers everything you will need to create delicious family meals including a five-ring gas hob, two electric ovens, an American style fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and coffee machine. Enjoy relaxed dining at the seating space for 16 people or breakfast at the breakfast bar. The ground floor is completed with a utility room that offers a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a separate WC. Heading upstairs to the first of two upstairs floors, you will find four bedrooms: two large double suites, one of which has an en-suite shower room with shower and WC; a spacious super-king master suite, with a luxurious en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC and seating area with sofa bed; and a triple with bunk bed and a single bed. A family bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC completes the first floor. Heading up to the second floor there are a further two bedrooms: a quad room (a bunk bed and two singles) and a king-size with an additional single bed, these two bedrooms share a large bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC.

Outside, with step-free access from the ground floor, there is a large, peaceful, south-facing garden that acts as a real sun trap. Beyond the garden, stretching as far as the horizon, are exquisite views of fields, woodland and the beautiful natural world. Relax in the hot tub after a busy day exploring or enjoy sociable family mealtimes at the outdoor seating area with charcoal BBQ. Children and young adults will enjoy getting together in the annex situated above the garage. The annex room also offers a sofa bed and WC. There is private parking for six cars.

The accommodation was exactly as described - all the facilities were in excellent condition - the welcome basket a really nice surprise - the hot tub was well used - the garden was just right for games and the dog to run around. We thoroughly recommend this property - we used it for an overdue family get together and everyone agreed it was perfect.
