Woodpeckers is a luxury boutique-style holiday cottage perfect for couples wanting to relax in the Sussex countryside with easy access to country walks and nearby Ashdown Forest.
The open plan living space has been designed to a high standard using hand-made British soft furnishings and decorations in Farrow and Ball colours. There is a well-fitted kitchen with granite worktops and a welcoming sitting-area with a ready to light wood-burning stove to keep you cosy during your stay.
The bedroom has a luxurious king-size bed with quality linen. This leads to a large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, large double-ended bath and plenty of storage within the hand-made vanity unit, a heated towel rail with Egyptian cotton towels and welcome toiletries and slippers.
Woodpeckers benefits from its own private enclosed landscaped courtyard garden with outdoor furniture and gas barbecue, ideal for al fresco dining. There is also use of a shared tennis court and fitness room. Breaks can be taken all year round starting on any day of the week.
Sharpthorne is a rural village on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, home of Winnie-the-Pooh, which is popular with walkers. A car is essential and there are numerous attractions within reach including horse racing at Lingfield, shopping in Tunbridge Wells and the opera at Glyndebourne. The South of England showground has regular events throughout the year including many antiques fairs.
Keen gardeners could visit Wakehurst House and Botanic Gardens, owned by the National Trust but used and managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. There are also the gardens at Borde Hill, a beautiful English Heritage Grade II Listed garden set within 200 acres of scenic parkland and the gardens at Sheffield Park where you will find rare mature trees and shrubs.
You could also step back in time and travel on a vintage carriage on the Bluebell Railway whilst taking in the Sussex countryside. There are so many things you can do in this beautiful area and after a long day out exploring you can return to the comfort of your luxurious retreat.
