Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside, offering wonderful countryside walks, this holiday cottage has been stylishly designed throughout to provide a romantic getaway.

This cosy, contemporary cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Buxted and is within walking distance of the village pub and railway station. Brighton is just 25miles away with its Royal Pavilion and is a shopper’s paradise offering boutique stores combined with fantastic places to eat and drink. Or why not seek out The Pantiles at Royal Tunbridge Wells just 14 miles away.  Alternatively, take the train and spend the day in London sightseeing or taking in a show. Keen walkers and dog owners will enjoy exploring the many footpaths that lead straight from the front door through the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and those looking to soak up the local culture can enjoy the world-renowned summer concerts at Glyndebourne Opera House or explore historic locations such as Lewes and Alfriston. Other local highlights include Ashdown Forest which is home to the renowned Pooh Corner and the Rathfinny Wine Estate, one of Europe’s largest privately-owned vineyards.

Step inside this property and enter the light and bright lounge/diner. Relax after a busy day on the comfy sofa and catch up on your favourite TV programmes on the Smart TV. The dining area overlooks the courtyard garden and is perfect for enjoying a romantic meal that has been whipped up in the well-equipped kitchen. An office desk and chair also offer the ideal spot to catch up on important emails. Heading into the kitchen you will find everything that you may need including an electric oven and gas hob, fridge, washing machine, microwave, ice maker and coffee machine. Stairs from the lounge lead up to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with Smart TV and a separate dressing room with ample storage. The property is completed with a shower room with a shower and WC.

Heading outside leads you into the courtyard garden - a perfect sun trap with a dining table, chairs, and a charcoal BBQ, ideal for summer dining. To the front of the cottage is private parking for one car.

The property was really clean, cosy and stylish and felt very modern. The owners really have thought of everything. The secure outdoor area is perfect if you have a dog and there is a nice park nearby too.

The property was compact but decorated beautifully to a really high spec and was abolutely spotless. It does seem however, that there's little or no insulation between the adjoining properties as we could hear almost everything going on in the neighbour's house. Not that they were overly noisy - just a normal boisterous young family but unfortunateRead morely it was bad enough to wake us and did disturb us whenever we were at home. Not quite the peaceful retreat we had hoped for. Hide
