This stunning holiday home boasts a beautiful interior that offers fresh, stylish accommodation throughout, perfect for families and their four-legged friends.

Perfectly situated in the pretty village of Guestling, in the heart of the 1066 Country with views across the Sussex countryside, this a great escape for families. An ideal location for keen walkers who can take advantage of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including numerous footpaths that lead straight from the front door through woodlands and along to the coast. With two village pubs, a tearoom, and a local butcher all within walking distance from the property, you can easily leave the car at home. A short drive away is the beach at nearby Pett Level (1.5 miles), an ideal spot for bird watching or to see the unique petrified forest. Hastings Old Town (4 miles) is also nearby, full of restaurants, shops, coffee shops and traditional seaside entertainment.

A spacious entrance hall welcomes you into this house and guides you through to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With two comfy sofas, an armchair, a wood burner and a Smart TV, this is a stylish and cosy room for enjoying a good film after a busy day. The dining area has a large dining table and chairs to ensure there is room for everyone, with the kitchen designed with keen cooks in mind and presents a stunning light and airy space in which to entertain. An island with bar stools is the perfect spot for a morning coffee or chatting whilst dinner is prepared and here you will find an electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Just off from the lounge area is a snug with a sofa, bean bags and a Smart TV, perfect for teenagers to chill out or for a peaceful spot to enjoy a good book. There is a king-size ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room.  Completing the ground floor is a further shower room with a walk-in shower and WC and a useful utility area with a washing machine and tumble drier. Heading up to the first floor, you will find three bedrooms all tastefully decorated: a king-size, a twin (with zip-and-link beds that can be made into a king-size on request) and a double room that has magnificent views of the local church, along with the family bathroom that offers a shower over the bath and WC.

Heading outside there is a private courtyard garden that acts as a sun trap for most of the day, where you can enjoy al fresco meals around the patio table and chairs. Just off the courtyard the owners have created a separate ‘doggy boudoir’ with a wet room, floor drainage and a butler sink with a warm shower attachment for washing off your four-legged friends after they’ve been for muddy walks. There is private parking for 3 cars.

What a wonderful stay we had. Perfect set up for doggies (even a muck room!) and easy walks in the woods and a trampoline for kiddos. Photos don't do it justice, it's finished to a very high standard, an incredibly well stocked kitchen and super cozy fireplace. Emma is a delightful and extremely helpful host too. Lovely pubs nearby and we'd love toRead more come back again! Hide

A very welcoming and comfortable home with everything we needed for our stay. The children loved the snug! There was ample room for all of us to eat/lounge/cook/sleep/wash!
