Located close to Dixter, this 300 year old cottage is sympathetically decorated throughout, full to the brim with old world charm and makes a romantic getaway for two in the south east region of England.

Located in the East Sussex village of Northiam, the local area boasts popular pubs, antique shops, butchers and farm shops. It is also famously home to Great Dixter, Christopher Lloyd’s celebrated hall house and garden, which is well-worth a visit. Situated in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, keen walkers will enjoy exploring the many footpaths, stopping at quaint villages for afternoon tea or a pub lunch along the way.

The front door opens into the charming lounge area, which features exposed beams, a large inglenook fireplace with comfortable sofa and an exposed brick wall. The kitchen beyond is compact but opens out to the garden and has everything you’ll need including an electric double oven with a grill, hob and overhead hood, microwave, fridge, freezer, and washing machine. Once you have finished preparing your meals, dine at the round oak gate-leg table that sits in the pretty dining area by the kitchen. Go up the steep turned stairs to the bedroom, which is extremely cosy and inviting, with exposed beams above and original pine floorboard below, and a cupboard with hanging space. Also on this floor is the stylish bathroom with bath with overhead shower next to the pretty cottage window, basin, mirror and WC also features original floorboards.

Outside, the cottage is approached via a pretty front garden, while the stunning pebbled garden at the rear of the house has been beautifully planted and features a handmade bench and cafe style table and chairs for al fresco dining.

Quirky 300 year old cottage, so except low beams & steep staircase. Dog friendly downstairs, but not allowed upstairs. Small but adequate seating area outside. Lovely location, but doggie walkers be warned, there is no street lighting at night, so extremely dark for the night time walk around the block. However, you do get a wonderful view of the sRead moretars. Hide

We had a wonderful stay in Elsies cottage, which is located in a peaceful village on the door step of Great Dixter House. The cottage itself is lovely, its small and cosy and perfect for 2 adults and a dog. The cottage has original features such as steep stairs, uneven floors and low doorways which all add to the character of this property. Our dogRead more Rufus loved the garden especially the wooden seat that caught the morning sun. We are definitely coming back! Hide

Very nice comfortable old cottage with local walks and easy reach of the seaside.

Reviewed by Diana Sally, 14th June 2019

This is a lovely 300 year old cottage, and because it is that old it has low door frames, the rooms are small and the staircase very steep, so if you are over 6ft tall you need to be prepared to watch your head all the time. However the cottage is very comfortable and cosy and in a beautiful part of Sussex and we loved staying there.

A lovely cottage in a great location. Equidistant to many places of interest in the South East of England

A really charming, quaint, cosy cottage! Beautiful place, and very close to Rye. Will definitely stay again during the summer, it was perfect for the two of us. We already look forward to our next visit here again.
