This elegantly furnished holiday cottage has been stylishly designed throughout to provide stunning accommodation with contemporary features. Set in the heart of the enchanting village of Alfriston, it makes this a wonderful getaway for a family or group of friends.

This pretty three-bedroom cottage overlooking the village green and 14th-century church is within half a mile of shops, historic pubs and the first-ever National Trust property. It’s also within 5 miles of a beach, a zoo, two English wine centres and lovely walks through the rolling hills, ancient woodlands and pretty villages of the South Downs National Park, making it the perfect base for a small group interested in exploring this lovely corner of England.

 

The hallway as you enter this elegant dog-friendly cottage, is the ideal space for coats and boots and leads to the lounge overlooking the village green. There’s a downstairs WC too for convenience, and the well-equipped kitchen is a great space for cooking up a meal for everyone to enjoy around the dining table, perhaps accompanied by a glass of English wine made from grapes grown within a couple of miles of the cottage. Curl up by the wood burner in the evening, and then retreat to the three comfortable bedrooms upstairs. The family bathroom is also upstairs. Outside is a little table that’s ideal for enjoying a quick snack, and roadside parking outside the property is unrestricted.

 

This charming cottage is in the pretty village of Alfriston that links directly to the South Downs Way that can be joined 200 metres from the property. This National Trail takes you past hillside chalk figures, pretty villages and sweeping sea views towards Eastbourne 9 miles away, and as far as Winchester in the other direction. Within 2 miles of the property are two acclaimed English wine centres offering wine tours and taste experiences, and one of them is right by Drusillas Park zoo. The shingle beach of Seaford is 5 miles away, and the attractive historic town of Lewes is just 10 miles away. This attractive cottage is the perfect base for exploring the treasures of East Sussex.

A beautiful cottage and location enjoyed a great week. Property adjacent to a hotel where staff were friendly and very helpful. Only thing to bare in mind is there is no private garden.

We had a wonderful stay in this cottage. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and provided a superb base to explore the stunning landscape of Sussex. Its position, down a quiet lane and facing the village green, is ideal and minutes from the high street with its plethora of hostelries. The cottage itself provided spacious accommodation with a toRead moreuch of luxury, along with every implement you need to make it a home away from home. Highly recommend this accommodation. Hide

This cottage is in a wonderful location. It is spacious and comfortable. But it is very badly equipped. We had no coffee maker,tea towels, oven gloves, sieve, and an unusable frying pan which was only replaced two days before we returned. Disappointing when this property is quite expensive and could be so much better.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
