  • "Enjoyed our stay."

    Good, clean and well-equipped cottage and great swimming pool. However, it is unacceptable to even mention the tennis court as a facility as it was in an unplayable condition, which was disappointing. Also, loose paving stones, especially on the steps, need fixing as an accident could happen. Final comment is that if you state 'no pets' you should also warn customers that you have a dog that wanders around the garden. No matter how well-behaved Digby is, some people may have a problem with dogs.

    Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback and positive comments. I have discussed the tennis court with Sykes and asked that all images are removed, we don't list it as a feature as i agree it's not playable so i apologise for any out dated images that were misleading. We have begun work to fix the loose paving stones as well as other maintenance work to the grounds. Thank you also for your comments about Digby, usually the owners will ask all guests if they are ok with dogs or not and he will be kept away if there are any concerns but i fully appreciate your feedback and will again have this added to the listing for customer awareness. Thank you and kind regards Heath Retreat Management Property Owner

The property

Heath Retreat is a wonderful detached bungalow set in the beautiful Sussex countryside, on the outskirts of the village of Buxted.

Boasting an open-plan layout and framing spectacular views of the surrounding greenery, Heath Retreat is the perfect base for groups of families and friends alike.

Follow the private road to reach this fabulous abode, where a large off-road parking area greets you at the foot, offering unspoilt views of the garden and the surrounding treetops.

Stepping inside, be welcomed into the bright and airy open-plan kitchen/living room, equipped with a range of amenities, a breakfast bar with seating for two, and a sitting area providing the perfect place to relax and unwind in front of the television.

The adjoining dining room is a lovely space to tuck-in to a hearty meal with your loved ones, whilst those who prefer to dine alfresco can venture outdoors to the private patio.

When sleep calls, there are three fabulously-appointed bedrooms to choose from, with the master bedroom fit with a double bed and benefiting from access to it's own en-suite, whilst the twin and single share use of the stylish shower room.

You don't have to look further than your immediate surroundings to keep entertained during your stay; pack your trunks and make a splash with a dip in the heated swimming pool.

For those days where you fancy taking a break from cooking, travel the short distance into the heart of the nearby village of Buxted, where you can indulge in a spot of pub fare at The White Hart Buxted.

Catch the train and journey to Uckfield, where you can work up a sweat at Uckfield Leisure Centre, get your steps in with a stroll through the tranquil grounds of West Park Local Nature Reserve, or catch a classic or box office film at the Picture House Cinema and Restaurant.

Those looking for an outdoor adventure can take advantage of the close proximity of Heath Retreat to the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, decorated in green landscape, historical monuments and picture-perfect villages waiting to be explored.

Enjoy a coastal retreat with a visit to Eastbourne, where the Treasure Island Adventure Park is sure to keep little ones entertained, whilst the Victorian pier and golden sands offer a traditional seaside experience.
