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, The Hurstwood, 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.

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 heated towel rail 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.

Cottage in a beautiful location with a huge pond outside (children cannot be left a attended). No shops/pubs within walking distance, but if you want a break away from it all, this is great.

We used Chauffeurs cottage as a place to get 4 generations together and we all had a fantastic holiday, from my 92 year old father to my 9 month old granddaughter. The location is perfect not only for exploring the area but for relaxing and just enjoying the peace. The owners were also very helpful and accommodating. A lovely holiday - thank you .

Lovely location away from it all but close to Uckfield and all its amenities. The cottage was very warm and comfortable. Spacious enough for all of us and the downstairs bedroom s were idea for the less more mobile members of the family.
