Delightful character cottage situated in the historic village of East Dean within the rolling countryside of the stunning South Downs National Park, just one mile from the iconic Seven Sisters Cliffs and the Seven Sisters Country Park is just two miles away.

Escape to the country with a trip to East Sussex and a stay in this charming 17th-century cottage. Ideal for the extended family, the property sleeps six across four bedrooms and has more than enough space for the group to relax after exploring the surrounding countryside. You can even bring four dogs to share in the fun.

Traditional throughout, the property is decorated with classic British themes. Floral patterns and pastel shades can be found within the two spacious living areas. The first is a calming room basked in sunlight and overlooking the private garden, the ideal space to sit and read a book. The second is a larger open-plan living and dining space featuring large shipping timber beams distinctive of period cottages, and has plenty of seating options for sitting down to watch the TV. There is also a light-filled garden room reached via cottage-style stairs on the first floor, with doors opening outside to a set of external steps leading to the garden. This vast, multi-level garden is fully enclosed and is made up of multiple terraces connected by steep stone stairs and is surrounded by foliage. Outside you’ll find a table and chairs for dining alfresco.

The quaint cottage overlooks a picturesque village green, a picture-postcard scene. Moments away from a deli and local pub, it’s only walking distance from necessary amenities. Families with a penchant for the outdoors will adore the 3.5-mile walk through the South Downs towards Beachy Head, an iconic South Coast landmark. Stop and enjoy a local ale at the nearby pub having soaked in the glorious view. Alternatively, a 4.5-mile walk south-west will take you towards the beach at Cuckmere Haven. This pebble beach sits at the mouth of the River Cuckmere under the chalky shadow of the cliffs of Seven Sisters.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage ideal for our needs as a group of 6 friends getting together for New Year. Plenty of space to sit around and relax. Kitchen well equipped to cook for 6. Fabulous location in a beautiful ancient village. Access to wonderful walking trails right from the door. Local pub and Thai restaurant both good.

Glebe Cottage is excellently situated, right on the village green opposite a fine old pub. We appreciated the garden - so pretty with cottage garden plants and various seating areas. Having two separate sitting rooms really helped out family arrangements - some watching TV in one and some playing cards and reading in the ' quiet room'. As for the aRead morerea! If you like the South Downs they really are on the doorstep. There is nothing not to like. Hide

We had a great holiday with family and friends in a super location ! I would recommend that occupiers are advised to use the Garden Room steps for safe access to the garden ! Or a proper handrail is provided to the rear steps ! As for below, my friends are mad and think flying abroad is still acceptable !

Perfect cottage on an idyllic, quiet village scenery. We will definitely be back for regular escapes. Perfect for large families and pets. Very close to seven sisters and lovely area for relaxed walks and local car trips. Lovely bistro shop next door and pub across the road. Strongly recommended.

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.
