Little Turret is part of the old farm buildings of the Beauport Home Farm built in 1838 and in its time housed the farm workers. Situated above the now converted old forge and cowshed and amongst a few more modern homes, Little Turret is full of character. It has recently been renovated to provide all the modern appliances whilst keeping original features to reflect the age of the property. Tastefully decorated with a mixture of Farrow and Ball colours and William Morris wallpaper you won't be disappointed. Access is up the stone spiral staircase in the turret with its interesting ceiling, which leads to the lounge with a log burner, TV, DVD player and 2 sofas. The property has an ample dining room with vintage furnishings and a further woodburner ideal for cozy Autumn and Winter meals. Off the dining room is a small but quirky cloakroom. The fully equipped galley kitchen has a dishwasher, washer, dryer, oven, hob, microwave and fridge. The double bedroom is off the lounge with quality, luxury bedding. Please ask if you require an extra bed for a young person (minimum age 11). We can provide a foldaway bed and bedding.
Upstairs you will find the bedroom with exposed brick work, a king size Rococo bed with quality bedding, stripped floorboards and far reaching views from the unusual round window over Hastings and out to sea. The spacious bathroom has a roll top bath with Egyptian cotton towels provided for that touch of luxury.
Little Turret has its own driveway for at least 2 cars and a pretty decking area with table and seating for 4 to enable you to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon tea.
Little Turret is ideally located in the heart of the famous 1066 Country a short drive from Hastings seafront, the historic town of Battle with its Abbey, the beautiful town of Rye. It's just a 10 minute drive into St. Leonards where you are spoilt for choice for antique shops, cafes and galleries. St. Leonards even has its own independent cinema with restaurant and art gallerty. A new cinema 2 minutes away from the property has opened and features luxurious seating for just 30 at a time. There is an abundance of live music available in Hastings Old Town with many events held during the year. Hastings is known for its Pirate Day and is a must if you are in the area. It also hosts an annual Seafood and Wine Festival in September and Hastings Day Bonfire and Firework Display in October. In November nearby Battle hosts a Bonfire Night Procession and amazing firework display from Battle Abbey.
Hastings is proud to announce the re-opening of the pier, which was destroyed by fire several years ago. Now open for the public to enjoy views of the town from out to sea.
Hastings Old Town also has a mixture of antique shops and cafes alongside amusements, crazy golf and everything you'd expect from a seaside holiday. The picturesque narrow streets and fishing huts set between the 2 cliffs are worth a visit.
A little further out you can find plenty of walks, cycle routes and areas of outstanding natural beauty. For those interested in history you can visit Battle Abbey famously founded by William the Conqueror, Bodiam Castle complete with moat and turrets and Herstmonceux Castle to name but a few historical attractions.
With so many attractions and events you will barely have time to enjoy the home comforts of the cottage.
