    Everything you could want is provided including the most comfortable bed out of all properties we have stayed in this year. This cottage is in a great location enabling us to visit many places including Beachy Head, Seven Sisters, Brighton, Scotney Castle, Batemans, Canterbury Cathedral and many more.

    The furnishings and appliances are great and the Bed is really comfortable. We were lucky to have warm and sunny weather and enjoyed sitting in the courtyard garden with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Jamie the owner was at hand if we had any questions. The area is great for visiting National Trust houses plus many famous gardens. Hope to revisit next year.

    We loved it then and coming back was if anything even better. This is a great place to stay and within easy access of lots of interesting places (we visited 14 National Trust properties and the beach at Camber Sands!). We could not recommend this more highly.

    The weather was good enough for us to make use of the enclosed patio garden. Jamie was available on the end of the phone to help with any queries. The owners of the local Spar shop were very friendly and helpful, including recommending a visit to Seven Sisters and the Long Man of Wilmington, which was a very pleasant day out. We also enjoyed visits to Battle Abbey, Sissinghurst, Bateman's and the RSPB nature reserve at Dungeness.

    There is so much here to see & do – we visited castles at Dover & Pevensey, houses at Bateman’s & Ightham Mote, gardens at Sheffield Park, saw the Poohsticks bridge at Hartfield & travelled on the Bluebell Railway. The weather was outstanding, 28 degrees nearly every day, so we were really spoiled for sunshine. Thanks to our hosts, Jamie & Katya, for their friendly welcome & helpful tips. We should be delighted to return here in the future, as it has been such a lovely week.

    Spacious for two, most comfortable holiday cottage bed we've slept in, comfortable chairs, smart TV, internet, clean, nice kitchen and bathroom. The weather was very hot but this cottage remained relatively cool and a comfortable temperature. Slightly more expensive than a basic holiday cottage but everything is in really good condition, stylish and works as it should, so worth the extra in this case.

    Review Positives: lovely messages from the hosts prior to arrival to welcome us etc, good base to visit surroundings, comfy and cosy, smart tv and internet, adequate level of cleanliness, coffee pods and tea bags provided Negatives: had to clean the oven as was dirty, water heating went off twice during our stay but was, at least in the first occasion, quickly resolved, quite cold and only enough logs for one fire, poor communication from hosts following leaving and asking if they could sign out from tv apps (still have not heard from them), no welcome pack - not even a little butter or milk, lack of cleaning products

    We are very sorry to read this review and learn that your stay was not entirely satisfactory. We endeavour to make every guests stay as positive as we can and will take your comments on board. In response however to your comments, we would like the opportunity to respond. Cleanliness: The cottage is cleaned before every stay and checked. Wood: We provide more than enough wood for several fires including kinding and firelighters, more is available upon request and is stacked up outside the cottage and in the cottage garden wood store for guests to re stock. Heating. The cottage is fitted with Hive technology and can be controlled via the thermostat and independently at each radiator. Hot Water. this was unfortunate and irregular, however the fault was fixed as soon as we were notified. As with any home, occassionaly issues with boilers arise and we hope our guests understand this. Communication: With regards to communication and signing out from TV apps, we did explain that we were on holiday and we had to send someone round to do this despite the fact the cottage was occupied. Unfortunately, it was not easy for us to continue to respond once we had left the country as we were taking a break as a family. However, the apps were signed out as soon as we recieved word from you that you had left them on. Welcome Pack: We provided all cleaning products including dish washer and washing machine capsules, nespresso coffee pods, tea and sugar for the duration of a stay. As this is not a B&B, we unfortunately do not provide milk, butter etc.. which can be purchased at the local shop, In our welcome communication we always ask if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, however we will take this on board for the future. We thank you for your feedback, and welcome all guests if they have any issues to speak directly to us at the time as we live next door. All the best. Jamie and Katya Property Owner

  • "We had a bad experience on leaving the property."

    The exit onto a busy section of the A265 is very narrow & the bank & shrubs on either side of the drive partially obscure vision of traffic when turning out left. When making the turn left the back nearside tyre crashed into an obstruction at ground level resulting in a burst tyre. We managed to drive to Broad Oak village hall & had a 3.5 hour wait before assistance arrived to replace the tyre.

    We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience when leaving the property. We would have been very happy to assist had you let us know. The road is busy but is of a standard width and the driveway is extremely wide, allowing for generous turning space upon leaving.The bank at the property is raised but the shrubs and planting is cut back to ensure sufficient view points. We are very sorry that the pleasure of your stay was affected but we have not experienced any issues ourselves or from our guests using the drive since opening. Property Owner

    Hosts, Jamie and Katya, were very friendly and helpful but never obtrusive. The outdoor patio space was super but weather was not good enough to use it. Parking space very roomy. The only slight quibble we had that it would have been nice to have a walk-in shower rather than over the bath as headroom wasn't very good but obviously many guests may want a bath.

    We were very comfortable in the stylish , modern, spacious, clean cottage. The road next to the cottage is busy but not much of a bother. Located close to good walks and a 30 minute drive from the beach. We found bags for rubbish and food recycling, tin foil and dishwasher tablets in the kitchen cupboards. And the nespresso machine was nice to have. The little outdoor space was very welcome and nicely enclosed. Even though the cottage is right next door to the main house it still feels private. There’s a good Greek restaurant- Pilio in Heathfield. Try it. The lovely cottage helped us relax even more.

    The furnishings were high quality and the refurbishment was done to a high specification. The area was lovely too, but as mentioned previously very close to the main road, though it didn't really bother us much - but obviously thats a personal thing. Did find it hard to find, turning could do with larger signage. Bed was very comfy and everything was spotless. There were a few very minor issues - a woodburner with a few pieces of wood, but no kindling/fire lighters. The kitchen was lovely but surprisingly no where to put food (except a fridge). No additional items that have normally been provided in previous cottages I've stayed in eg tin foil, clingfilm, spare bin bags, etc. Though the welcome pack did have a washing/diswasher tablet, wine and coffee capsules for the machine. The TV signal dropped out alot, it as easier to use the wifi enabled apps - wifi was really good. We will be back, as it was in all a fab holiday - perhaps next time you could organise better weather!! ;)

There are plenty of fantastic places to visit - we walked around Bewl Water, drove down to Eastbourne via Beachy Head and a short walk to Belle Tout lighthouse, and took a slightly longer (but very worthwhile) trip to Dungeness and New Romney, with a ride on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.

The property

Heathfiled 3.4 miles.

This charming cottage rests within the grounds of the owner's home, surrounded by countryside, a private paddock and lovely outbuildings, in the quiet village of Burwash near Heathfield in East Sussex.

Stables Cottage is a quaint rural retreat for a couple or small group of four wanting to enjoy the best of the countryside and coastline of Sussex, within the High Weald AONB, as well as being a 30-minute drive from the coastal resorts of Eastbourne, Hastings and Bexhill on Sea.

Enter the property to discover a fantastic renovation to the highest standard, with each room immaculate, bright and airy, starting with the living/dining room, which offers sleek wooden flooring, lovely vaulted ceiling with spotlights, dual aspect windows with shutters, looking out onto the garden, a wall-mounted TV, a choice of cosy armchair and sofa, which transforms into a double sofa bed, as well as enjoying the warmth from the wonderful woodburning stove and a dining table where you can gather together to enjoy a home-cooked meal.

From here, you will find the spacious king-size double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and Velux window, so you can admire the view from the comfort of your bed, as well as the brand new bathroom suite, with fully tiled marble and a choice of shower over bath to prepare for each day.

With the king-size bedroom and spacious double sofa bed, Stables Cottage is great for a family of four, also allowing a fifth little one to sleep in the cot provided.

Down a set of stairs is the large, lower-ground-floor kitchen, recently fitted to a high standard, with all the mod cons you could wish for, including a dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, washer/dryer and a Nespresso machine for that morning caffeine boost, which can be enjoyed in the enclosed rear patio garden, where you'll find outdoor seating, a barbecue and fire pit, perfect for long summer nights outdoors enjoying great food, wine and company.

There is off-road parking for 3 cars, as well as use of the owner's private paddock containing an additional seating and fire pit.

The village of Burwash offers tennis courts and the National Trust's Batemans, the 17th Century former home of writer Rudyard Kipling.

Head to the bustling market town of Heathfield for a fine selection of shops, takeaways, restaurants and pubs, as well as a host of visitor attractions and the Cuckoo Trail, a walking, cycling and in part, horse riding trail that extends to Eastbourne and has become part of National Cycle Network Route 21.

Explore the pristine rural surroundings of the High Weald AONB, where you will discover woodland, farmland and grand Medieval manors, while the coast is just a 30-minute drive away, should you want to spend a day by the sea.

Eastbourne offers a 19th Century pier with a bandstand, backed by Victorian hotels, while the historic town of Hastings offers a renovated pier, the ruins of its Norman castle, once home to William the Conqueror, a shingle beach, a fishermen’s museum and shipwreck museum, which offer a sense of its rich maritime history.

There is plenty of opportunity to discover wonderful coast and countryside from this excellent holiday home.

About the location


Battle 12 miles; Royal Tunbridge Wells 14 miles; Bexhill on Sea 17 miles; Eastbourne 17 miles; Hastings 20 miles

Heathfield is a market town in Sussex known for it's annual fair the Heffle Cuckoo Fair each April, and the Heathfield Show which takes place each May. Its busy town centre offers an assortment of shops, takeaways, restaurants and pubs. One of the most popular visitor attractions in the area is the Cuckoo Trail, a shared track for walkers and cyclists, with horses allowed on some of the sections. An extension has also been constructed to the south into Eastbourne and the trail has become part of National Cycle Network Route 21. Scattered around Heathfield are several towns, villages and hamlets including Rushlake Green with its picturesque village green and quaint looking pub serving excellent local food. For a day out to remember why not visit Rudyard Kipling's home Batemans, which is located at Burwash. This National Trust property is very much how Rudyard Kipling and his wife Carrie left it, with this beautiful 17th century house providing a much needed sanctuary to this world-famous writer. With so much to do inland you could be overlooking how close the coastline is to Heathfield. With Eastbourne, Hastings and Bexhill on Sea all less than a 30 minute drive you should leave a day to beachcomb your way along the shoreline and savour the salty air as it braces you ready to enjoy a visit to The Stade art gallery in Hastings or The De La Warr Pavilion with its exhibitions and music events in Bexhill on Sea. Tunbridge Wells is also a 25 minute drive away with its Georgian and Victorian architecture. With so many exciting places to visit and things to do and see within a short distance means Heathfield is a secret no longer!
