In the heart of 1066 Country Packed is this 15th-century cottage, full of character and a perfect retreat for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle to unwind in the peaceful East Sussex countryside.

This beautiful listed cottage is located in the village of Ninfield in East Sussex, conveniently situated on A269 giving easy access to all local amenities attractions. The village is quiet and rural, and benefits from a village shop, farm shop and two popular pubs. Further afield, the property is close to the beautiful Sussex coast and is within a 20 minute drive of the town of Hastings, with its beach and cliffside funicular railway, and Bexhill-on-Sea with its iconic art gallery, the De La Warr Pavilion. The National Nature Reserve at Pevensey Levels is also a 20 minute drive away for those who enjoy quiet, coastal walks.

This gorgeous Grade II listed cottage dates back to the 15th century and offers a range of original features. A pathway leading through the garden brings you to the front door of the property which opens to a small hallway. Off from here is the cosy lounge, with beamed ceiling and inglenook fireplace with woodburner. Of particular interest in this room is the 27ft well, which is illuminated behind safety glass. The comfortable sofa and chairs are arranged around the open fire and the TV and DVD player are cleverly hidden away, so as not to detract from the period atmosphere of the room. A step down from here leads to the dining area with a table seating six, feature fireplace and windows looking across the beautiful garden. The kitchen is conveniently located just off the dining room and is light and airy with everything you would expect, including electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. There is also a kitchen table and chairs for less formal meals. Take the stairs from the hallway to find the bedrooms. The master bedroom is located to the front of the cottage and has a double bed and space for a travel cot, if required. Storage space in this room is cleverly built into the alcoves. The second bedroom has twin beds, as does the third bedroom, which also benefits from a small en-suite bathroom. The main bathroom to the rear of the property has a walk-in shower.

The property benefits from a beautiful, private cottage garden which is mostly laid to lawn with pretty, well-maintained borders. There is parking for two cars, one on the drive and one just outside the gates to the property.


Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

The cottage was very comfortable and clean. We have never been in a cottage that was so well equipped. We had every facility in the kitchen that you could think of. The owners own ornaments etc were around the house not to mention the 2 large bookcases overflowing with books so it felt very 'at home' and not feeling empty.

Tim and Bridget are very, very kind hosts. They gave us a lot of tipps, where to go, which gardens or pubs to visit etc. Their garden is a hidden jewel - it is awesome.

Reviewed by Marion, 19th May 2017

This is a lovely cottage in a truly magnificent garden. We were only there for a short time so have arranged for a longer stay later on. We found it helpful to have the owners in the adjoining cottage. Anything we needed help with was sorted out with a smile.

We were so welcome at Hollis Cottage, to be greeted by a delicious home made cake was a real treat. The cottage was a very comfortable and easy place for a holiday. Very well equipped, comfortable beds, loads of hot water and a beautiful sunny garden. Location is great, easy to get to so many places without having to drive long distances.
