About Diana Brennan
We have lived here since 1975 and enjoyed living in such beautiful surroundings
Diana Brennan purchased this Cottage in 1975
Why Diana Brennan chose Buxted
This property is situated in the heart of the AONB of the Sussex Weald which in Roman and Tudor times was the main iron producing region in Britain. The iron ore was used, amongst other things, to make canon ball to help fend off the Spanish Armada. We have a hammer pond dating back to this period and the remains of the bloomery and other workings of this industry can still be found nearby.
What makes this Cottage unique
The main house is an Arts and Crafts house, and the cottage is approached through the archway of this house and is situated at the end of the drive next to a large unfenced pond well away from the road and surrounded by the beautiful and unspoilt Sussex countryside

Real country feeling
We enjoyed our stay in the chauffeurs cottage! Wonderful house, a magnificent garden and everything we needed for a perfect holiday was not far away!
An excellent property
An excellently presented property by owners who really care. It was big enough to easily accommodate three generations of the same family.
Cozy cottage in lovely setting
Really lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere - 5 of us had a cozy new year break here. Great as a base for walking - the Vanguard Way passes close by. Even has a coal fire for those chilly evenings.
Beautiful location and great property
This served not only as a great base to explore the local area but had everything we needed for a perfect stay, including a very warm welcome. The house was well equipped and was comfortable. There were board games and DVD's, a roaring fire and a great lake for fishing, or just watching the ducks. Our 3 young boys spent most of their time fishing ( their first time) and had a lot of success. Would go back for sure
quiet, clean comfortable cottage in a superb position
. Equiped with all we needed for a relaxing holiday. Comfortable accommodation in a quiet place, stay sitting by the lake or exploring the coast and countryside arround.
