This charming weatherboarded holiday annexe is the perfect hideaway for couples looking to escape from their day-to-day routines, offering innovative and cosy yet airy accommodation in a beautiful location.

This bijou property is located in Sedlescombe, a beautiful rural village in East Sussex, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Just outside the village is an organic vineyard which offers seasonal wine tasting tours and has walks through bluebell strewn woodlands. Further afield, the towns of Rye, Hastings and Bexhill are all within an easy drive away, as is the beautiful former-home of Rudyard Kipling, which is where he came to write The Jungle Book.

A bright hallway welcomes you into the property and leads on to the open-plan lounge/dining room/kitchen. The lounge area is comfortable and cosy, with sofa, TV and DVD player. French doors lead onto the decked area. The dining table is situated in front of the French doors, so you can enjoy the views while you eat. The kitchen area comprises a small unit with oven and sink, whilst the washing machine can be found tucked under the stairs. There is also a wet room on the ground floor, with shower. Stairs from the hall take you to the landing with writing desk and Velux window, to the right of which you will find the bedroom with its king-size bed, and French doors which lead onto a small balcony, offering glorious views across the countryside.

Guests have shared access to the garden, which seem to be an extension of the meadows beyond, with their abundant wildlife. There is even a large fish pond with huge Koi carp. The French doors from the dining area, lead to the decked area with BBQ and outdoor seating. Parking is available to the side of the property. Please note that the property is attached to the owners' house.

 

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.

Please note there is a refundable £300 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Very comfortable and easy to find. Perfectly situated to go and visit local areas, we went to Camber Sands, Hastings and Rye whilst we were here and loved it all. You are also located next to a couple of really pretty walks, great for pets!

This cottage was so lovely. It was exactly as pictured and situated next door to the owner and in their beautiful gardens. It was clean and comfortable with brilliant views of the countryside which could be seen from bed in the morning! The kitchen area is compact but it was enough space for us to cook full meals every day. The cottage is a short wRead morealk (10/15 mins) from Sedlescombe village where the local pub and shop is and a short drive to the coast and other local pubs/restaurants. Hide

Cottage was really nice and the owners friendly and helpful. The location is on the corner of a very busy road so not able to comfortably walk into the local village, also some road noise at night.
