- Despite being situated in a rural location Blackthorn guests need to be considerate of our near neighbour's privacy, keeping noise to a minimum. One reason for our limited hot tub and indoor pool hours of 8.00am to 8.00pm daily is to contain the noise levels particularly in the evenings.

About Peter Spencer
Blackthorn is attached to our home - a single storey, former agricultural building set in beautiful Sussex countryside, where we work at our freelance jobs: Karen is a full-time graphic designer specializing in book designs, while Peter is a greetings card designer and publisher, part-time gardener and musician, and also runs the cottage lettings business.
Peter Spencer purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Peter Spencer chose Icklesham
Both my wife and I came to the area independently as children and we've been under its spell ever since. Glorious beaches, medieval towns with smuggler's tunnels, a beautiful coastline and varied landscapes still hold its appeal. The property itself is quite unique: a former agricultural, single-storey black timber-clad building around a courtyard that faces south with uninterupted countryside views and a distant glimpse of the sea.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our holiday cottage is probably unique in England as it's just for two people but still has a hot tub and an indoor heated swimming pool quite literally on its doorstep. It's surrounded by peaceful countryside and is the ideal place to get away from it all and totally relax, but still close enough to good roads enabling guests to get to beautiful places within a few minutes. As the cottage is attached to our own home we are also on hand to give advice or help with anything if guests should need us, otherwise we're very discrete.
