A two bedroom, early 20th Century, Boulton & Paul timber cottage,

set in a private, 30-acre estate of lawns, woods, streams and lakes in the High Weald of Sussex


This two bedroom, early 20th Century timber clad cottage, set in a private, 30-acre estate of lawns, woods, streams and lakes in the High Weald of Sussex, retains many of its original features, including open fires, cast iron door furniture  and exposed wood walls and floors, without compromising its 21st Century standards of comfort and technology – including complimentary wi-fi connection.

On the estate, you can explore our ancient bluebell woodland or stroll along the banks of our three lakes or just sit and admire the spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. We are also within a few minutes drive of some of the most beautiful gardens in England as well as more than half-dozen ancient castles and, of course, some stunning National Trust properties.

Look through our website where you’ll find full details of the cottage and the estate. You’ll also find a full list of things to do and places to visit including Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling and Battle Abbey built by King William on the site of the Battle of Hastings.

About The Cottage

Blackdown Cottage was built in about 1890, originally as the Estate Manager’s house for what was then a substantial estate of many hundreds of acres. Major renovation work on the cottage was undertaken during 2008 bringing it up to 21st Century standards while still retaining many of its original features such as the wood-clad walls in the hall, the cast-iron fireplaces in the sitting room and two bedrooms, and the solid iron door furniture.

Our prices range from £540 to £870 per week and include everything you are likely to need during your stay with us, including Wi-Fi connectivity, pure cotton bed linen, huge, pure cotton towels, toiletries, fuel oil and electricity. A selection of  the latest books, DVDs and CDs are provided for your entertainment while younger guests have access to a chest full of toys and board games.

Naturally, guests staying with us for a week or more will find a complimentary basket of local goodies.
