Try this bright and spacious East Sussex holiday cottage on the fringe of picturesque East Hoathly

Set beside the owners’ beautiful and traditional Sussex oast house, Paines Oast Cottage offers exceptional and spacious accommodation right in the heart of the Sussex Weald. In a rural setting on the edge of the picturesque village of East Hoathly, the cottage is a perfect base to explore the local countryside with plentiful walks around the patchwork of local fields all from the doorstep. The South Downs, Eastbourne, Lewes and the Ashdown Forest are all nearby, so this cottage is well placed for much that Sussex has to offer.

This one bedroom cottage makes a perfect retreat for two people providing excellent space. It also has the benefit of a downstairs shower room in addition to the ensuite bathroom upstairs. This means that the cottage can also work well for a family of four, as a comfortable sofa bed is provided downstairs. The upstairs bedroom has twin beds for flexibility which guests may push together should they wish.

Outside, guests have their own private courtyard space in front of the cottage, which makes a perfect afternoon and evening sun trap.

East Hoathly and beyond

The village is just a quarter of a mile from Paines Oast cottage. The historic centre is a designated conservation area containing many Listed buildings including the house of the famous Georgian diarist Thomas Turner, the 13th century King's Head public house and the parish church with a Grade II Listed, 15th century tower. Also central to the village are the wonderful tearooms, popular with visitors and a meeting place amongst locals. Both pubs in the village also come highly recommended, so a lot of hospitality very close by.

Also central to the village are the wonderful tearooms, popular with visitors and a meeting place amongst locals. Both pubs in the village also come highly recommended, so a lot of hospitality very close by.

For visitors in November, the Bonfire Society leads a very colourful procession through the village every year, always on the Saturday preceding Remembrance Sunday; its proud motto being “Lest we Forget”. In fact November 5 is celebrated around here; nearby Lewes has seven societies that converge on the town every year.

The historic market town of Lewes is only five miles away. It is a fantastic place to visit — full of cafes, restaurants and bars. The River Ouse flows through the town dividing it into two areas between Cliffe High Street presented in beautiful period style with its gateway, a paved bridge, crossing the river and the main High Street that heads up the hill.

Lewes is the county town of East Sussex. The castle at the top of the town is open to visitors, as is the Barbican Museum opposite. It offers a peaceful area immediately off the High Street. In the town’s Southover district is Anne of Cleves House, which is also open to the public. It was left by Henry VIII as a settlement in their divorce.

Harvey’s Brewery, central to the town was built in the 18th century, it still produces fine ales. There is a shop and restaurant close by with many pubs owned by the brewery in the near vicinity.
Visiting Lewes on the first Saturday of the month is recommended when the thriving Farmers’ Market comes to town with lots of delicious fare on offer!

The world famous opera house at Glyndebourne is three miles away so the cottage makes a perfect base to enjoy the prestigious Glyndebourne Festival.

Travel ten minutes towards Lewes taking the Ringmer road, you will find the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum within the grounds of a beautifully furnished Palladian mansion with gardens to match. This wildfowl reserve has an amazing collection of ducks, geese and swans, and the motor museum boasts a unique collection of vintage and classic cars. An unusual combination, but worth visiting.

Further afield Sheffield Park Gardens and the Bluebell Railway are within easy reach, together with the village of Alfriston nestling in the South Downs along with its Clergy House, and south from there the Seven Sisters Country Park, Beachy Head and of course the seaside resort of Eastbourne.

The South Downs meet the sea at Eastbourne. The chalk cliffs at Beachy Head mark the start of the South Downs Way, a national trail running through the heart of the new South Downs National Park on its route to Winchester 100 miles to the west. Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters Country Park next door are spectacular areas of coastline and are within a half hour drive of Paines Oast Cottage.

The chalk cliffs at Beachy Head offer wonderful views across Eastbourne. It is an idyllic seaside resort offering three miles of promenade that seamlessly merge with the Downs, a historic Victorian pier and a relaxing ambience that encourages the visitor to want to return. The seafront is guaranteed to enrich any visit.

To the north of Uckfield, and a ten minute drive from the cottage, is the Ashdown Forest, with 14,000 acres of lowland heathland that has never been cultivated; it provides a unique habitat for many species of flora and fauna, and of course is the ‘home’ of Winnie the Pooh!

This is just a flavour of what there is to enjoy within a short distance of the cottage. Take a look at ‘Places to visit’ on the website for many more ideas.

Visiting Friends

"We were very happy with the location of the cottage which allowed us to visit friends and explore the area. The only problems for us were the WiFi and mobile signals. If we had been working this would have been difficult. We also felt that it was not ideal for outdoor relaxed living as the courtyard garden was rather public/on the main drive of the house. The description noted twin beds that could be pushed together which we took to mean actually to make a double bed but as they are divans with headboards this was not possible. Although we have said we would recommend it this is qualified by the above."

A Delightful Home from Home

"We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Paines Oast Cottage and could not fault the accommodation. The cottage is in a very convenient location, close to the A22, on the fringe of a peaceful village, perfect for exploring much of East and West Sussex. It is ideal for a relaxing stay, well thought out, with everything you need from washing up liquid to wifi provided to a high standard. The cottage is warm, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and had generously provided basic essentials (milk, tea, coffee, wine and chocolate!). It was particularly good to know that our dog was also most welcome. We would not hesitate to recommend this super home from home. Thank you so much for our lovely holiday."

Nice Place To stay

"Paines Cottage is a nice place to stay ,covenient to lots of coastal towns and not too far from london. As it was rented out for two adults and two children, a double bed for us , and two singles or bunk beds for the children would have been more suitable."

Everything we could have wished for and more

"It was well equipped and very comfortable. The owners were on hand if needed which proved useful when we first arrived. The downstairs shower was a bonus. No additional charges for heating and plenty of hot water at all times. Parking in front of the cottage. Thoroughly recommend this rental. "

Exceeded my expectations

"Very clean, comfortable, spaceous and nicely decorated. The driving directions from the hosts were very clear and useful. The location is excellent - you are at the edge of s small village, forest walk is outside your porch, but yet you are just off A22, which you use to access everything quickly. Upstairs bedroom doesn't have a door, it's more like an extension from the living room, which makes it ideal, if you have kids, who are scared to sleep in a separate bedroom in unfamiliar place. You are together and yet separated. There's only one little downside - the fridge doesn't have a freezer, so don't stock up on frozen food. "
