GATE COTTAGE: Brighton Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 1995ha
Gate Cottage is a small, cosy cottage close to the entrance at Pekes. Two double bedrooms sleeping four to five people.
Myself and my partner were looking for a competitively priced cottage holiday as bad weather ruled out our original plan to go camping for the week. Therefore we had a limited budget and wanted a holiday which would provide us with things to do. We chose Gate Cottage at Pekes as the website listed our key requirements of swimming pool and tennis court. We were not disappointed and the cottage was absolutely superb. The cottage is clean and has a decent/comfortable bed. A working open fire provides a romantic addition to the normal central heating system (£2 per bag for logs). However the best point of the estate (in which Gate cottage is located) is the indoor tropical swimming pool. It really is just like the pictures on the website and is a great place for adults or children. The Tennis and Badminton court also provides great sporting activites for the family. Due to the location, there are many walks surrounding the estate most with on-route pubs - which we enjoyed walking to and staggering back from!. We also used Glebe Field Riding School which is a 5 minute drive and was a fun activity for the morning. The picturesque towns of Rye and Lewes are nearby providing a nice day out. For those looking for a more vibrant town there is Brighton. I would recommend the cottage on the grounds it is competitively priced with many on-site activities which are ideal for families or sporty/outdoor adults. as well as the cottage being ideally located for decent day drips. We had a really lovely week and no doubt we shall return.
Recommended for: Sightseeing, pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car.
