About the property

Barn in Fairlight, Nr. Hastings and Rye, Sussex, England - Peaceful Location 5 Minutes Drive From The Beach

Shepherds Cottage is a lovely 18 century single story barn which has just been transformed into a romantic hideaway. It sits in a courtyard setting that is part of working stables. We are located on the fringe of the village which has two pubs that both serve food, and are within walking distance. The village has a farm shop, butcher and post office.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had such a lovely weekend away for my birthday celebrations! Beautiful weather and long walks through the countryside, Pett Level, Winchelsea and Rye Harbour nature reserve. Shepherds Cottage was a lovely homely place to stay - the milk and wine were a perfect touch on arrival! Thank you for everything. We will definitely be back! Happy Xmas!
