Gate Cottage
1 of 13Gate Cottage
Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Chiddingly, East Sussex, England
One of six charming self-catering converted houses in the grounds of Pekes, a Tudor Manor House, Gate Cottage was originally built in 1911 for ‘Willie the coachman’. It is a quite small but sweet county cottage (sleeping 4-6)

The cottage is situated in the grounds of a private estate. It has its own secluded, large garden, mainly trees and grass, which is safely enclosed making it suitable for small children and dogs.

This tile-hung cottage is cosily furnished with floral country prints and colours, fitted carpets and a mixture of furniture making it a very restful place to stay. The TV/Living room has a working fireplace, and the dining room and kitchen are fully equipped for up to 6 guests. There are two bedrooms, a sofa-bed and a bathroom with electric shower over bath. It is very tranquil and has lovey views over the park and countr...

This is such a full Review that we couldn't have written it better ourselves! Just to pick up on Colin's comments: We have left the grass in the Park long this year for the 1st time, hoping that it's a more natural and earth-friendly method,...More

Gate Cottage at Pekes Manor is a slightly more private experience than the other properties of Pekes Manor. As such, it offers a nice level of privacy. The experience of our wedding guests was 5 out of 5 stars. All loved the beautiful scenery and...More

About the neighborhood
Guests can use the shared indoor swimming pool and hard tennis court and wander round the extensive gardens and park. Walks lead away from the house, and link up with other country footpaths
The sea and the lovely Seven Sisters cliffs are 10 miles away, there are lots of interesting & entertaining things for adults and children to do locally, and the seaside towns of Eastbourne, Hastings and Brighton are within easy reach.
The nearby village shop is open 8 to 5 (Saturday 9 to 12:30, closed Sunday). There are 2 pubs (the 6 Bells and the Gun) each about 1 mile away. Hailsham is about 4 miles away with Supermarkets, Banks and many other shops.
Getting around
Pekes is very rural. There are many country walks nearby, but otherwise a car is necessary to visit all the other attractions in the area.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Gatwick: 34.2 mi
Railway: Polegate: 8.1 mi
Ferry: Newhaven: 14.3 mi
Polegate is our nearest rail station, and there are quite frequent trains from London Victoria, Gatwick airport, Brighton and Eastbourne. There are always taxis at the station, and Pekes is about a 15 minute ride away.
By car, turn off the A22 along Nash Street. In less than a mile, at a cross roads signed Muddles Green and Chiddingly, turn right up Pekes long drive.
The bus service is not a good option.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, Horse Riding Nearby, Nearest Beach: 14.3 mi.
