Property code: OC-SX952

In a lakeside setting on the Oastbrook Estate, this lodge house offers wine lovers doorstep access to the estate grounds and tours as well as a beautiful base from which to explore East Sussex. The dramatic fortress of Bodiam Castle is just 2.5 miles by car; a scenic 1.5-mile riverside walk will take you to the castle site on foot. Captivating Rye is 12 miles – set aside a day to wander Rye’s historic, rambling streets, lined with independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Just 4 miles south-east of Rye, the vast Camber Sands provides a picturesque beach walk – a glorious, 7-mile golden stretch.

This fabulous lodge house is impressive in its setting and just as striking indoors, with stylish, Scandinavian-inspired interiors. On the ground floor, you’ll find an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with full-length gable-end windows and French doors which open out onto a balcony. Here, a sleek kitchen area is flanked by a breakfast bar with stool seating for four, and an adjacent dining area has a smart dining table and chairs framed by light from an overhead skylight. The lounge area is cleverly positioned by the glazed gable end to make the most of those lake views. Here, a large, comfortable sofa – a sofa bed which can be used as a double bed – and a TV area will be made wonderfully cosy by lighting the wood burner on cooler evenings. A modern shower room with a rainfall shower completes the ground-floor accommodation. Up on the first floor is a king-size bedroom and a staircase leading up to a snug, mezzanine-level loft where a twin room has zip-and-link single beds which can be arranged as a king-size on request.

Outdoors, the leafy vineyard setting is even more romantic when enjoyed from the hot tub on the decked balcony. Savouring a glass of the estate’s wine while admiring the lakeside views will prove irresistible – guests are invited to make use of a BBQ and outdoor furniture too.

Booking was easy enough but I prefer to talk to a person when I have a query rather than rely on emails

We had a fantastic break in this very beautiful and peaceful property. It was finished to a very high standard with comfy beds and a very nice rain shower. Check in was easy and the owner popped in just to show us the property, pass on a bottle of fizz and direct us on a nice 10 minute stroll through the countryside to a great pub serving good beerRead mores and food. Returning from the pub to enjoy a nice hot tub on the private deck was perfect and the local fizz the owner gave us was amazing! Would definitely use this property again. Hide

The property is a new build and has been very well set up with quality equipment. The owners thoughtfully provided a bottle of wine from their own vineyard, some local cheese and biscuits, and a small supply of tea, coffee pods and a carton of milk. The folder gives useful details of local restaurants and places of interest. The owners are charmiRead moreng, provided a quick explanation of the lodge facilities and then left you to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. I can recommend the 1.5 mile walk along the river bank to Bodiam Castle. Will definitely look to there again. Hide
