We enjoyed a week here and were so lucky with the weather. Nikki is helpful and friendly and she soon sorted out a minor glitch we encountered with the wifi. This attractive house is in a lovely quiet location, set in beautiful gardens. The conservatory is an excellent place to relax and we made good use of the two reclining chairs in there after long, busy days exploring the area. The house is tastefully furnished, comfortable and warm with all mod cons. We ate a couple of evening meals at The Three Cups Inn which is only a short walk away. We also had some meals at Elite in Heathfield, with their £9.95 mezzes for two people being unbeatable value at less than a fiver each. What is good about Heathfield is that it has free parking (unlike most of the other towns in the area which unfortunately do charge). However, you can park for three hours free at Sainsburys in Tunbridge Wells and Tesco in Lewes (and yes we did shop in them both!). There are lots of interesting towns within easy reach, such as Rye, Battle, Lewes, Tunbridge Wells, to name but a few. There are also a good number of historic houses and gardens in the area, including Michelham Priory (HHA), Batemans (NT), Scotney Castle (NT), Bodiam Castle (NT), Great Dixter House and Garden (HHA), Sissinghurst (NT) and many more. We could have done with a second week to see all the places we wanted to visit, as there are so many in that corner of the country and we didn't have time to get to them all.
Situated in a beautiful part of East Sussex and ideal for anyone who loves the English countryside. Ideal for walkers with one walk straight from the cottage and others nearby but yet close enough to the coast at Rye, Hastings and Eastbourne (for Beachy Head). Good pub food available about 200 yards away and in the pretty village of Rushlake Green (1 mile).
The cottage is very well furnished and fitted out and has a superb conservatory overlooking the garden which we used both for eating and just relaxing in the very comfy recliners. Nikki the owner made us very welcome right from the start with some lovely plums from her garden which were soon turned into a plum crumble. We would not hesitate to return.
