Holiday cottage, Ninfield, East Sussex
"Very relaxing stay.Lovely environment.Just perfick for two Adults.Great private parking very secure."
A stay in Ninfield
"Our stay was exactly what we needed. A place to rest and chill out. The Road Direction signs for the area though are very confusing to say the least, we ended up going round in circles and back tracking loads of times. Bexhill shopping area is decaying, as is Hastings, however, Hastings Old Town and Old Town Bexhill are worth a visit. Battle is a lovely place to spend time in, and Herstmonceux Castle is lovely to see. Bodiam Castle is value for money. Pevensey is also worth a visit. The Bulls Head at Boreham Street is a good place for eating in, as is the Italian Way opposite the De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill. On the whole, apart from the state of the roads and road signs, we had a lovely stay in our accomodation."
just what was needed
"We enjoy our weeks stay in The Summer House. It was just so peaceful and restful just what we needed. It had everything that was needed fro a teaspoon to a tea pot! The steam room was an added bonus. Would like to come next year."
well presented,clean and comfortable.
"Whilst the property was well presented clean and comfortable it was a lot smaller than we hoped.The only negative comment I would make is that there was a lack of controlable ventilation to the kitchen, dining area, sitting room and bedroom.There was no natural light to kitchen and dining area.Being there on hottest week of the year there were no windows which could be left open at night,the rooms had casement doors which had to secured at night making it very uncomfortable for sleeping."
"This was an ideal location for touring and a relaxing, enjoyable experience. The Summer House was clean and very well appointed with all the usual facilities. "
The Summer House is set in the same grounds as the owners' home and is accessed through secure, keypad entry wooden gates, giving you secure parking and somewhere safe to leave bicycles if you wish to bring them away with you.
The cottage is all on one level, making it suitable for anyone who has limited mobility and struggles to use stairs.
You access the cottage from a private patio garden, with outdoor seating and views overlooking the owners' stables and countryside. French doors lead you straight into a sunny lounge, with TV and a small DVD library. From the lounge you will find a bright, cosy double bedroom on the left and the dining room to your right. The kitchen is modern and well equipped for all your holiday cooking needs. The accommodation has a separate WC with hand basin, separate shower room and a beautifully tiled steam room for you to enjoy during your stay.
The Summer House is just four miles from the historic town of Battle and Battle Abbey. The magnificent Abbey is very central to the town and a visit here takes you to the heart of 1066 Country. The Abbey was of course founded by William the Conqueror on the site of the Battle of Hastings and today it is an English Heritage site. When William died, he left many gifts to the Abbey that included his royal cloak and a portable altar used on his campaigns. Today the Abbey has a wealth of interactive displays and a cafe that offers wonderful views across the battlefield.
Eight miles away is Hastings Old Town, full of historic buildings and quaint streets and is particularly famous for its beach fishing fleet, the largest in Europe. Much of the tradition has been kept and the net drying huts are today preserved at the top of the beach and sit amongst the many fresh fish stores at the foot of the cliffs. The Shipwreck and Coastal Heritage Museum is also found here and worth visiting; we carry a link under our 'Places to visit' section.
Pevensey Bay is close by and the unspoilt pebble beach is an excellent spot for a stroll or summer picnic. The castle at Pevensey is worth a visit with 2/3 of its towering castle walls still standing and the chance to spot 'The Pale Lady of Pevensey' who is supposed to haunt the grounds. Pevensey is only five miles from Eastbourne and a short distance from Eastbourne's Sovereign Harbour. It is one of the premier marinas in England with a lot of prestigious yachts moored there.
East of Pevensey is Bexhill-on-Sea, which has retained the qualities of a traditional Victorian seaside town and English life at the start of the last century. Like Eastbourne, it benefits from some of the best sunshine in the UK and is rightfully known as being part of the sunshine coast. It is filled with Victorian and Edwardian architecture and is possibly most famous for the De La Warr Pavilion located right on the promenade.
For those who want to visit further afield, the historic, cobbled medieval town of Rye is twenty miles away and is a great day out.
