Located between the historic towns of Hastings and Battle in Sussex, this ideal location offers the perfect blend of coastal charm and historical significance, making it an ideal destination for your getaway. Just a short drive away is the iconic Hastings, a bustling seaside town known for its picturesque Old Town, pebble beach, and iconic fishing huts. Stroll along the promenade, enjoy fresh seafood at one of the quaint restaurants, and explore Hastings Castle for a dose of local history. A little further inland lies Battle, renowned for the 1066 Battle of Hastings. Visit Battle Abbey and the Battlefield, where the historic clash took place, and delve into the captivating past of this significant event. In addition to the rich history, the surrounding countryside offers breath-taking landscapes and serene countryside walks and for those looking to further explore the area, there are numerous attractions within 20 miles including Bodiam Castle, Batemans, Great Dixter and the charming towns of Rye and Bexhill.

On arriving at this lovely cottage, which was originally built for the gardeners of Beauport estate, the cottage is accessed either via a steep set of steps that leads you down a secluded pathway to the front door or use the other access from Battle Road which has 3 even steps and a slight slope ideal for prams/pushchairs. Enter into the charming lounge, which features two comfy sofas, one of which is a sofa bed, surrounding a Smart TV to enjoying watching your favourite programmes after a busy day. The kitchen/diner beyond is well-equipped with everything you may need for whipping up a delicious family meal before gathering everyone together at the dining table with seating for four where on a chilly evening you can light the electric wood burner effect stove for extra ambiance and warmth. Heading up to the first floor you will find two bedrooms: a king-size and a twin room. The property is completed with a family bathroom. Please not the staircase is steep.

Outside, the cottage is approached via a set of steps from the pretty front garden, which has a naturally wild area for encouraging bees and the local wildlife. Relax in the hammock strung between two trees with a good book and listen to the local birdsong, while the stunning pebbled garden at the rear of the house has been beautifully planted and features a handmade bar area with charcoal BBQ, a wood fired pizza oven and patio table and chairs for al fresco dining.

This is a lovely cottage to stay in, especially with dogs. There is a good sized garden with access directly from the garden into a woodland walk. There are other walks from the cottage and Hastings Country Park is a short drive away with many different areas to explore. The cottage is well equipped including a comfortable bed and a hot shower.
