Lovely Sussex Countryside Cottage with use of pool & hot tub, sleeps 4

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Sleeps 4: 2 bedrooms+sofa bed, 1 bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining, use of pool

Welcome to the Countryside Holiday Cottage.

This hidden gem offers you lovely seclusion, whilst not being too far away from amenities.

It lends it self well to families, having ample space for children to play safely in the garden or the field right next to the cottage and it also suits those of you who wish to enjoy the outdoors.

It sleeps up to 4 people, as the cottage offers; bedroom 1 with a double bed, bedroom 2 with two single beds. There is a sofa bed in the open plan living space which could accommodate a 5th person. A supplement will be added to the cost.

The bathroom is equipped with a bath and shower. The kitchen is open plan, allowing for maximum interaction with each other.

The cottage also has the use of a swimming pool (summer season only) and a hot tub which is used by the owners as well. It offers a lovely sun trap, where sunbathing really is enjoyable and as the pool is only a few steps away, its quick and easy to cool down and have a swim.The pool is heated during the summer season (only) by the means of an air source heat pump. This means that the temperature can vary depending on the ambient temperature, but we always work on reaching an as enjoyable temperature as possible.

We have the lovely historical town of Battle only a short drive away.


Check in is from 4pm (16:00) and check out is by 10:00am.

Use of our 9 acre field: As you can see in some of the photographs, you have some lovely views over a field and woodland. The actual field is right outside the Cottage and you are welcome to go for walks in it and we also have a picnic bench at the far end where its lovely to sit down and just enjoy the outdoors.

We have installed a top of the range hot tub which you are welcome to use. Children are welcome to use the hot tub as well - but only under DIRECT Adult supervision. There are controls which adjust not only the jets, but also the settings. These must not be pressed as it can change settings for the hot tub and without knowing what has exactly been changed, restoring it can be very difficult and may mean that the hot tub will be out of use until it has been restored. Safety and proper use are such important factors to bear in mind and we wish for you to respect this. Also pool and hot tub hygiene is imperative for an enjoyable experience, both for your selves and for other guests. Therefore, please shower before using the facilities and make sure your swimming costumes are rinsed free of any soap/washing powder residue.

A few words: very clean, luxury kitchen, dishwasher, oven, microwave, luxury bathroom, bathtub, separate spacious shower, wifi, luxury beds made up, scented towels, comfy sofas, modern tv, dvd player, heated pool, awesome hottub, fresh eggs from chickens owner, welcome pack, delicious cake from the owners; Richard and Maria, beautiful surroundings, Heathfield (and supermarkets) close by. The view is beautiful, we have seen deer in the woods near the field! And do you want to shop? In 45 minutes you're in Brighton! Richard and Maria, we will definitely be back!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here over Easter 2017. The cottage has everything you need, and is well placed for visiting many local places. We particularly loved the hot tub. Richard and Maria are very friendly and welcoming...we couldn't ask for more!

Amazing Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at this amazing property.

The Property is maintained to a magnificent standard and is very modern. The pool and hot tub were fantastic.

We had some great weather which was a bonus as it meant we spent a lot of time relaxing around the pool area.

The cottage is surrounded by lovely trees and fields which is home to some lovely wildlife including deer and rabbits. We have stayed in a lot of cottages throughout the UK and it goes without saying that this property is simply the best.

Last but not least we would like to stress how lovely and friendly the owners were. Richard and Maria are brilliant hosts. Heathfield town centre is ideal for a weekly food shop, as well as having nice coffee shops and a couple of restaurants. Eating out is great with lots of nice pubs within a short driving distance.

Lovely cottage and lovely friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a furnished to a brilliant specification, the welcome pack was very welcome. The area around the pool is a lovely sun trap, the hot tub is incredibly warm, the pool is fantastic, and though it can vary in temperature due to the air source heat-exchanger, most of the time it was swimmable. Just to note the pool and tub is shared with the owners. Everything is surrounded by trees or fields, so it's very private too. The icing on the cake, was the apple and rhubarb cake we got brought on Wednesday by Maria, which was amazing

amazing, beautiful, relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

5 star customer satisfaction and care. Richard and maria take great pride in providing a excellent experience. They genuinely care about providing a lovely holiday for their guests and make a real effort . Facilities are fantastic and cottage is clean and extremely well presented. On arrival a hamper and fresh eggs. Maria made beautiful animal shaped towels.

When looking out one window there was lovely countryside views with animals. And looking out the patio a lovely swimming pool and hot jacuzzi and sauna which we enjoyed the cold month of march. It made us feel we were in two completely different destinations....extremely refreshing. Richard, maria and jeni even gave our girls a pony ride which the loved and made it so memorable for them. Thank you. The icing on the cake was maria made a delicious cake. thoughtful. A unforgettable holiday break.

Thanks again...hopefully will see you again soon.
