This former stable block has been sympathetically converted to offer charming accommodation with plenty of features throughout. Set in rural surroundings it's a great choice for those looking for a romantic break.

This lovely cottage is situated in the village of Fairlight in East Sussex. There is plenty to see in the area, with many pretty beaches scattered along the coast, from the RSPB reserve at Rye Harbour, to the cliff-backed beach at Pett Levels, with its hidden fossils and rock pools and, further around the coast, the wide expanse of sand at Camber Sands. If you fancy a break from beaches, try a visit to the historic town of Rye with its antique shops, boutiques and huge choice of places to eat.

Passing through the wooden porch of this former stable barn, you will arrive into the welcoming open-plan living area, with stunning period features such as the exposed beams and fireplace with woodburner. The kitchen has everything you will need, including, oven, hob, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher, Butler’s sink and washing machine. There is a farmhouse table with seating for two, perfect for romantic dinners and long breakfasts. The lounge area centres around the woodburner, which keeps the cottage wonderfully cosy in winter months and has a sofa, two chairs, wall-mounted TV, DVD player, iPod dock, Wi-Fi , a beautiful hand-painted Welsh dresser, where you can find an array of DVDs and games, perfect for nights in front of the fire and a walk-in clothes storage cupboard. The delightful bedroom has a double bed, two chests of drawers and wooden hangers, as well as an en-suite shower room and views across the farm courtyard.

Outside the property, there is an enclosed, paved seating area with table, chairs and a BBQ. Parking is available.

the cottage was well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. A very good location, ear the sea, with great views and lots of footpaths. Local pubs serve very good food. The owner was next door and available for useful advice, nothing too much trouble. A perfect holiday location, nothing to complain about at all.

Spotlessly clean and had everything we required. Good shower, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and nicely decorated throughout. Beautiful location with stables close by. If you are looking to relax this is a perfect place to do so.

I wanted to give feedback for Shepherd's Cottage in Pett, Sussex, where I stayed earlier in March - the feedback form crashed part way and I can't reopen it. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well-equipped - a great shower and lovely fluffy towels. The owner left daffodils and fresh eggs, which was a nice touch. Thanks

Wonderful little cottage in a great location. Could not have been happier. All perfect - bottle of wine and milk in the fridge and eggs on the side ready for breakfast. We would love to stay there again. The booking was easy and straightforward with great communication.

Wonderful restful stay. Lovely walks and excursions. We enjoyed celebrating our birthdays with the 'fizz' and the farm eggs were scrumptious. Beautifully clean and pretty cottage and peaceful scenery. Thank you for a great break in the countryside.

We have really enjoyed our weekend here and find it a very peaceful haven! Sadly not enough time to do very much, but we thoroughly recommend the 'Tea Ship and Galley at Rye Harbor. We have had good walks around the Rye Harbor Nature Reserve and the Fairlight shoreline, and there's pleanty more to do another time! The closest pub is the Two SawyersRead more in Pett, and The Royal Oak a bit further along in Pett and The Smugglers Inn in Pett Level serves food and is right by the sea. Thank you for a lovely stay! Hide
