Bedroom details

Bedroom 1


This characterful cottage is located in Gingers Green just outside the village of Herstmonceux, with beautiful views of the Sussex countryside and South Downs. It's the perfect retreat for couples of all ages.

As you enter through the stable-door you will find space for coats and walking boots before heading into the open plan living area with its oak beams, delightful wood-burning stove and creative decor all of which add to its charm. The kitchen is well-equipped with an electric hob and oven, perfect for preparing meals which can be enjoyed at the dining-table. Curl up on the sofas, watch films, read a book, or simply admire the views of the garden and fields beyond.

Double doors from the living area open to the garden. It's a peaceful spot to sit on a summer evening, al fresco dining or toasting marshmallows over the fire-pit whilst listening to the evening bird song and sounds of mother nature.

When the land of nod calls, retire to the bedroom which has dual-aspect windows, a lovely comfortable bed, and an en suite shower-room.

The cottage is only a short drive from the village of Herstmonceux where there are a couple of shops, restaurants, a coffee shop and pub. Herstmonceux is also home to the Observatory Science Centre and picturesque medieval moated castle.

There are some lovely walks and cycle paths nearby including a Green Lane which is adjacent to the cottage. Other popular routes include the Cuckoo Trail, South Downs National Park, and the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The market town of Hailsham is nearby and has several supermarkets including a Waitrose, independent shops, pubs, and restaurants. The nearest train station is Polegate, which has services to London Victoria and Gatwick Airport. 1066 Country is only a stone's throw away so why not visit the historic town of Battle, with its abbey ruins, battlefield and several independent shops, pubs, and restaurants.

The coast is only a short drive away. Visit Eastbourne, Hastings, Pevensey Bay, Birling Gap or a little further afield, Brighton or Camber Sands. Eastbourne's Sovereign Harbour is a lovely place to watch the boats, enjoy a meal, or take a boat trip to see the iconic cliffs at Beachy Head.

Get tickets to Glyndebourne and picnic in the wonderful grounds or enjoy a day exploring National Trust Houses, Castles, and Gardens. Visit Charleston House, The Clergy House in Alfriston, Lewes Castle, Michelham Priory, Pevensey Castle, or Rudyard Kipling's home at Batemans.

However you decide to spend your days here in Sussex, Gingers Green Coach House is the perfect bolthole for all your holiday adventures.
