Property code: 83845

Lovingly refurbished, this picturesque cottage boasts light and airy accommodation mixed with traditional charm, the perfect getaway for couples. Coastal resorts and countryside are both within easy reach.

This quaint country cottage is Grade II listed, dating back to 1450 and conveniently located on the main road in the heart of the village of Sedlescombe. It is within a short stroll of the 15th-century gastropub, village shop with the post office, and an antique shop. Keen walkers and their dog will enjoy exploring the many footpaths over the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and for those looking to explore slightly further afield, the towns of Hastings and Rye are both a 5-mile drive and have much to offer visitors, from the host of quirky antique shops and cobbled streets in Rye to the beachfront and fresh fish stalls in Hastings. Royal Tunbridge Wells is nearby for excellent shopping opportunities and historic Battle is a great place to visit with its ruined abbey and battlefields.

 You enter this cosy cottage into the welcoming hallway, with space for dropping off coats and shoes, and the lounge can be found to the right of the front door. This room is comfortably furnished with a sofa and armchair where you can get comfy around the gas flame-effect fire and put a film on the Smart TV with DVD. The dining table is here too with comfortable seating for two to enjoy meals together after a day exploring the area. Continue to the kitchen, where the low beamed ceiling means it has retained much of its original charm whilst offering everything the cook needs, including an electric double oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washer/dryer. The stable backdoor opens out from the kitchen onto an enclosed cottage garden. The bathroom is located on the ground floor, with a hand-held shower over the bath and WC. Narrow, steep cottage-style stairs lead to the first floor where there is a pretty double bedroom with a view over the front garden.

Heading outside, there is a typical cottage-style garden, which has a bistro table and chairs for al fresco meals, and the rear garden gate gives access to the private parking area for one car.

We had a fabulous time, the cottage was well equipped and clean whilst keeping all of the character we were promised. Its location was brilliant lots of walks around the village and driving distance to so many other walks on the marshes and beaches. The village has an amazing pub, good food and so dog friendly. We all loved it and will be back.
