This beautiful property is set in the grounds of the owner’s home in the charming village of Broad Oak. Stunning woodland walks await at Brede High Woods, just two miles outside the village. Take a trip back in time by visiting Battle (7 miles) and learning all about the Battle of Hastings at its historic abbey. For a day at the beach, head to Hastings (7.5 miles) or Camber Sands (11 miles), which offers 5 miles of fabulous sand and picturesque dunes. The beautiful town of Rye is well worth a visit, with its enticing array of antique shops, restaurants, and bars, just 7 miles away. In the centre, cobbled lanes like Mermaid Street are lined with medieval, half-timbered houses.

Step inside this tranquil couples’ retreat, into the open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room. Here you’ll find exposed beams, wooden floors, and a sumptuous L-shaped leather sofa. A dining table with seating for four guests. A striking wood burner sits in the corner, to keep you warm while you’re snuggled up watching the TV. The contemporary kitchen and dining area benefit from tall windows looking out onto the garden. Completing the ground floor is the fresh and bright bathroom with shower over the bath. Climb the spiral staircase to the spacious bedroom, which spans the whole floor and features an inviting king-size bed under the beamed eaves. This space lends itself to relaxation, with a sitting area that includes a sofa and cosy rugs, plus a fire escape door.

Feel free to enjoy sunny days in the picturesque garden with a wooden picnic table for al fresco dining and loungers to recline on.
