Stay in this beautiful 17th Century thatched holiday cottage on the fringes of Battle, with inglenook fireplace and large enclosed garden.

You enter this charming holiday cottage from the porch, straight into the heart of any home, the kitchen. Here you will find the traditional exposed beams, country style finishes and a warming Aga. The kitchen is equipped with all your catering needs and just in case you are not used to cooking on an Aga, an electric oven and hob are provided.

From the kitchen you enter the large open plan lounge and diner. A beautiful, warm, comfortable space to while away the hours, with large inglenook fireplace with woodburner, perfect for those chilly evenings. The dining area is slightly elevated and is a great spot for lazy breakfasts or casual evening dining.

A door with the traditional Sussex latch leads to the stairs, bedrooms and bathroom. As you would expect from a cottage of this age, some of the exposed beams are low and the stairs a little steep but a hand rail is provided. The bathroom has a bath with traditional telephone style shower attachment, WC and pretty hand basin.

The first bedroom is the double and is beautifully furnished with floral patterns and cosy quilted throws, it really is quite dreamy. The twin bedroom has a window overlooking the garden and one to the front of the property and again has been finished to a high standard.

The owners can provide on request a travel cot and high chair but you will need to bring your own bed linen for that.

The cottage sits in the grounds of the owners home but you have a 1/3rd of an acre of enclosed, landscaped garden all to yourself. A stone terrace area directly outside the cottage, with seating and sun loungers with cushions is the perfect spot to soak up the sunshine or enjoy an evening tipple. Plenty of lawn area for children to let off steam.

If you are bringing your bicycles away with you, storage can be provided and their is parking for up to four cars, all behind electric gates.

Such is the privacy and setting here it is only for the guests enjoyment and regrettably other visitors cannot be accommodated.

Battle and beyond

The Thatched Cottage is just two miles to the west of the historic town of Battle and Battle Abbey. The magnificent Abbey is so 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 is an English Heritage site. When William died he left many gifts to the Abbey that include his royal cloak and a portable altar used on his campaigns. Today the Abbey has a wealth of interactive displays and a café that offers wonderful views across the battlefield.

Nine miles to the south Hastings Old Town is 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.

This whole area is of course 1066 Country and we could comment forever about what there is to see and do. Take a look at all our ‘Places to Visit’ for East Sussex.
