UNIQUE 18TH CENTURY BEACH SIDE COTTAGE IN QUIET RURAL VILLAGE

Wealden Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4. 2 bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin, ground floor bathroom/WC

These unique cottages were built in the mid 1700's to house the preventive men, or customs men as they are known today. The Preventive men were garrisoned in this area to curtail the activities of the local smuggling gangs that plied their trade along this remote part of the Sussex coast. Seaview Cottage is the end of a terrace of three that have been extensively refurbished but have retained their character and charm.

Relax in the peace of this well maintained pretty cottage. It has a secluded rear garden with furniture for outside dining, barbecues etc. Situated on a quiet private road, yards from a clean shingle beach with sand at low tide.

The property has an attractive lounge / diner with TV and DVD. Fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, breakfast bar and stools. A small hallway to a fully tiled bathroom with over bath shower, basin and WC.

Stairs from the kitchen to one twin bedded room, one double room with uninterrupted sea view. Off road parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have really enjoyed our short stay in Sussex and found the cottage very warm, comforatble and cosy, in a great location! We have found some good walks in the countryside and would recommend two pubs in particular- The Tiger Inn at East Dean and The Yew Tree at Chalvington. The tea and biscuits on arrival were lovely-thank you!

We enjoyed our stay at Wealden/ Normans Bay at the Seaview Cottage. It was nice to be so close to the beach. Graham was friendly and helpful. I am a light sleeper so was concerned about the cottage being near a railway. I have to say I barely could hear the trains from inside the house so it was non problem at all. The Pevensey Bay village a few minutes away is lovely and there is a fabulous well priced Laundromat for washing and drying cloths.
