The former home of the chauffeur for Morphews House, this sympathetically updated cottage is a cosy home-from-home base from which to unwind and explore the surrounding countryside and wider rural Sussex.

Set in the grounds of the main house surrounded by 30 acres of fields and gardens, this wonderful holiday home offers peace and tranquillity all year round. With a popular pub nearby, guests can enjoy long strolls in the surrounding countryside followed by hearty meals of fresh, locally-sourced produce. Nearby Uckfield boasts a selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, ideal for collecting provisions for your stay. Within a 30 minute drive are two attractive towns, Lewes to the south and Tunbridge Wells to the north. Lewes has a quirky, artsy feel with many independent shops, a range of places to eat and its own brewery. Tunbridge Wells is an elegant town famous for its Pantiles, a gorgeous Georgian colonnade of shops and restaurants.

An entrance hall welcomes you into this house and provides a useful space to leave boots and coats. The lounge beyond is inviting and cosy, with an open fire and comfortable seating. Here you’ll find a TV, DVD player and family games for evenings in, while in the day you can enjoy views over to the pretty pond and grazing sheep beyond. The kitchen is light and airy and shares an open plan space with the kitchen table with seating for six. There is an electric oven and hob, washing machine and tumble dryer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and microwave. Also on this floor is a king-size bedroom with pretty dressing table and views across the fields, while, down two steps from the kitchen, there is a single bedroom with lovely views over the pond. These bedrooms both have access to the ground floor bathroom with a shower over bath and WC. Steep winding stairs lead upstairs where you’ll find a bedroom with a single bed and another bedroom with twin beds, also with an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC, complete with charming sloping ceiling with skylight.

Outside, there is a large private garden with table and chairs and a BBQ for summer meals. An unfenced pond sits alongside the garden, so children should be supervised at all times when playing in the garden. This is a perfect for nature lovers as it attracts plenty of wildlife.

We absolutely loved this clean, comfortable cottage in the most delightful rural setting. Sitting in the large grassy garden by the pond with trees and flowers around us was just perfect. The owners were helpful and friendly and the hens, who often wandered over, completed the relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Beautiful cottage in a stunningly quiet location within the grounds of the owner's house. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage configuration was perfect for us as a couple with three older children, and grandmother. We struggled a bit to cook with the slightly outdated cooker, but this really wasRead more a minor problem. We would definitely recommend :) Hide

We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage and would highly recommend having a holiday here. The owners were very kind and we had everything we needed for a lovely stay. The cottage was very warm and cosy as the owners had taken every care including putting the heating on for our arrival which meant we could settle in straight away. The countrRead moreyside around was truly beautiful and when we stayed the Autumnal colours made it very special. We hope to return soon. Hide
