Eastbourne cottage 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.
