Property description

Newly-built flint cottage inside the secluded walls of a recently-restored Georgian walled garden. Enjoy the peace, quiet and the magic of this working garden, which has been carefully recreated to match historic depictions of the garden. The high flint walls surrounding the garden provide privacy and shelter from the wind, while trapping in warmth and sunlight.
Sleeps 4 in one double bedroom (en-suite) and one smaller bedroom with two single beds and a separate bathroom.
Finished to a remarkable standard, the cottage is designed to make your stay effortless and relaxing. Beds are coil-sprung with Egyptian cotton sheets, and fresh towels are provided for you.
The open-plan cottage is ideal for spending time with friends and family, and makes a great base from which to explore the area. You can start your walks directly from your cottage, without the need to drive.
You can also relax on your own terrace area or meander the garden looking for a tasty addition to your cooking.

Car: Recommended

This Cottage has a wonderful location in the centre of the historic village of East Dean, winner of 'The Best Kept Village in Sussex' Award on many occassions. The village boasts a terrific pub within walking distance as well as a deli, thai restaurant, butchers shop, post office, newsagent, tea room. The village is 3 miles west of Eastbourne which has theatres, international tennis, museums, water sports, beer festival as well as restaurants, supermarkets, shopping and events. One of the best things about the cottage location is it's proximity to the South Downs, Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. The dramatic coastline and countryside can be accessed straight from the door of the cottage and some of England's most specatular walks and views await. You can also enjoy the beach at Birling Gap which is great for children and rockpooling, as well as surfing in the winter and BBQ's in the summer evenings. You can also take skiing lessons at Knockhatch dry ski slope 15 minutes up the road or visit Brighton (40 mins) or London (1.5 hrs) during the day.
