Property code: BT074

This former stable block has been sympathetically converted to offer charming accommodation, the perfect getaway for two. Set in rural surroundings, it is ideal for walking and exploring the nearby beaches.

This charming property is located close to the village of Pett, which boasts two pubs, a farm shop, post office and family butcher. Surrounded by the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this cottage is perfect for keen walkers looking to explore the countryside and take in the many stunning vistas. Hop in the car for just five minutes and you’ll reach the Sussex coastline, where the super beaches of Fairlight, Pett and Winchelsea are well-worth a visit.

Enter the cottage through the pretty wooden porch and stable door into the main reception room. Vaulted ceilings are lined with original oak beams, which match the heated floor below, while new Velux windows flood the room with natural light. Straight ahead of you, the kitchen/diner adopts a distinctly farmhouse feel with cream cabinets, wooden worktops and a painted kitchen table. The kitchen has been equipped with an oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine, dishwasher and butler’s sink. The lounge to the right is cosy and inviting, with comfortable sofas, cushions and a woodburner with initial supply of logs set in an alcove fireplace, the perfect way to warm up after a long walk in the countryside. A hand-painted Welsh dresser houses games, DVDs and an iPod dock for additional entertainment. There is also a walk-in clothes storage cupboard. To the other side of the kitchen is the light and bright double bedroom which has a beam-lined ceiling and views over the farm courtyard with en-suite shower and WC.

Step back through the stable door and you’ll find yourself in a pretty paved area and enclosed garden with table and chairs, perfect for enjoying a summer BBQ with the farmyard ducks for company.
