This pretty cottage is set in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and presents an attractive blend of old and new through its carefully chosen furniture and original features.

Situated in the small hamlet of Burwash Weald, in the heart of the High Weald AONB, this delightful cottage is ideal for a countryside getaway. On your doorstep are a few village shops and country pubs to enjoy, while a short drive will take you to many places of historic interest. The former home of writer Rudyard Kipling, Batemans, now cared for by the National Trust, is just two miles away. Meanwhile, eight miles to the south you will find the town of Battle, where the famous Battle of Hastings took place at the town’s impressive abbey. Here you will also find a wider choice of shops and places to eat.

After heading up the garden path to the entrance of this pretty cottage, you will find the cosy lounge. With its open fire, comfortable furniture and TV/DVD, this room is the heart of the home. The lounge also has its own folding dining table and chairs where you can enjoy breakfast or a delicious evening meal. From the lounge, you can reach the kitchen, well-equipped with everything guests could need, including a large range oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine. Heading out from the kitchen, you will also find a small porch area leading to the garden, ideal for storing boots and shoes. This accommodation is arranged all on one floor, meaning the property’s two bedrooms are also found on the ground floor: a double and a single, with a step up into each. In the bathroom, you will find a vintage-style bath and WC.

The garden can be reached from both the lounge and the kitchen porch, and is a traditional enclosed cottage garden, with a patio, flower beds and a table and chairs. Parking is available for one car.

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.
