Cake on the Table

"The owner had freshly baked a cake and left it on the kitchen table for when we arrived, together with fresh flowers in a vase. How good is that? Property very well equipped. Good wi-fi connection. Excellent location for Bluebell Railway, Standen House (NT) & Forest Way for walking/cycling (amongst others). The only possible downside - the second bedroom isn't really big enough for two adults."

Pleasant cottage

"I found the cottage was very quaint and nice to stay in,adequete room for us both,and problems we had the lovely couple who owned the cottage were happy to help. Good location to go out and about especially for the Bluebell railway."

Other Reviews

“This was our first trip to England and our hosts were wonderfully helpful in assisting us in our arrival from the airport and ensuring we had what we needed to settle into the cottage. Their advice on getting around, suggestions of good places to eat etc. was accurate and most appreciated. They were generous and kind and we would love to return for another holiday. The cottage itself is very self contained; with a lovely private garden space, a sunny well appointed kitchen with everything you need, the living room was cozy with lots of interesting books, fireplace DVDs, and TV. The beds were comfortable. The up to date binders with information on local attractions were interesting and made us want to return to see more of the area. We really enjoyed our walks in this safe, semi rural and extremely beautiful neighbourhood. We wish to thank our hosts for a lovely stay and for sharing their wonderful cottage with us.

“The cottage was comfortable and the owners friendly, welcoming and helpful. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Peaceful surroundings, yet not isolated and close to all needed amenities. We would certainly recommend this cottage.”

"The cottage was beautiful and hosts friendly. Our boys (7 and 5 yrs old) were enamoured by the garden and their freedom to explore it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most certainly be back. Thank You. "
Mrs L. V.
"The house was perfect for my husband and I travelling with my mother. With separate kitchen/dining and lounge areas there was plenty of room to get privacy and on a couple of occasions we entertained friends of my mothers which was lovely - this just would not have been possible in a "hotel" or a bed and breakfast type situation. There were a great supply of novels and non fiction books along with a wonderfully prepared book of local attractions etc. Lots to enjoy and explore within just a few minutes of the accommodation. Free WiFi was a great bonus."
A. Bowman
"Nice and quiet property with very friendly and welcoming owners. Lovely sitting room and good heating. Great beds/mattresses. We were very pleased with the property."
Mr D Bosman
"Cottage was in a great location for getting around the area. Very quiet road. Owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful."
Taylor
"We would love to thank you for your lovely welcoming and beautiful home. Our time in East Grinstead was very enjoyable and it really felt like home away from home. Would have loved to have stayed longer after seeing what there was to see south of London and the fantastic country side. Thank you again."
M Putland
"Lovely, roomy but cosy, well-equipped cottage in a beautiful area. Best of all were the owners, who were helpful above and beyond the call of duty."

A great cottage setting to visit the Sussex High Weald and a great spot for the Bluebell Railway

A traditional and comfortable ground floor cottage, that is perfectly placed for the many visitor attractions located in the north of Sussex, such as the Bluebell Railway, Standen, Wakehurst Place and the Ashdown Forest. High Weald Cottage is in the grounds of the owners’ home, yet enjoys its own private garden with access onto the paddock beyond. The gardens and paddock offer a display of colour throughout the season.

The cottage is situated in a beautiful rural area to the south of East Grinstead, yet is only a mile from the centre of the town. It is a two bedroom cottage that will sleep between three and four. The second bedroom is available with a single bed however it will open out to make an exceptionally comfortable full double. Although it does makes the room a little tight it is easily do-able. The principal bedroom has twin beds.

The cottage is comprehensively equipped, as you would expect with any home. It has a large and separate living room that faces south, with gas fire and plenty of books making it feel very homely. The kitchen and dining room are also of very good size allowing plenty of room for four to dine in comfort. There is just the single bathroom, recently fully refurbished which has both bath and a shower with shower screen. The garden space is large and private and is a wonderful feature of this property.

East Grinstead and beyond

A mile away is the market town of East Grinstead with its traditional wide street and shops that have been very much retained at the southern end of the town.

This area of Sussex offers excellent access to many well known visitor attractions. The National Trust property at Standen is within a mile of High Weald Cottage The Victorian house inspired by the architect Philip Webb and his friend William Morris is tucked away at the end of a quiet Sussex lane and offers stunning views over the High Weald towards the Weir Wood Reservoir. A visit here can easily keep you occupied for a day.

Now open to East Grinstead, the Bluebell Railway passes within a mile of the cottage and steam trains can be heard from the nearby Imberhorne cutting! Take the railway south through Kingscote and Horsted Keynes to Sheffield Park, and visit Sheffield Park Gardens, an internationally renowned garden and parkland also owned by the National Trust.

Other nearby attractions are Wakehurst Place, home to the Millennium Seed Bank, Nymans House and Gardens, and High Beeches. All are within a twenty minute drive of High Weald Cottage.

Three miles south east is the beautiful Sussex village of Forest Row, and south from there the Ashdown Forest and the many walks that the Forest provides. This is just a flavour of the area. Take a look on our homepage under ‘Places to visit’ for full details on all the attractions.
