    I did not use the wood burning stove but wood is available on site to buy. Kitchen was just right,very good wifi and the bedroom is so cute! As it was winter I did not sit in the garden but imagine in summer it must be idyllic.Not far from Heathfield town for shops.I did not have a car so used taxis when I needed to get about. The owner greeted me and afterwards unless I needed to ask anything( I didn't) was left in peace and quiet. Pretty lights in the conservatory and nicely decorated interior.

The property

Rushlake Green 1 mile.

This beautiful detached cottage sits in the grounds of the owner’s home, in the heart of the Sussex countryside just a mile from Rushlake Green and four miles from Heathfield.

The cottage is in a perfect romantic spot from which to explore the beauty of this part of the country and the ideal place to relax and unwind in luxurious surroundings.

Decorated to the highest standard, the cottage offers a well-equipped kitchen and sitting area with a woodburner where, on chilly evenings, you can settle down with a bottle of wine and a DVD, before going upstairs to snuggle down and drift off to sleep ready for another day of long country walks.

On warm summer mornings, the conservatory with its dining area is an ideal place to enjoy your croissant and coffee as you plan your day ahead.

There is also an enclosed garden with patio and furniture where you can enjoy dining alfresco or a have a refreshing drink.

There is also shared use of a quarter of an acre of flower meadow with a pond and an orchard.

Situated along a quiet lane, and only a few minutes’ walk to a country pub serving excellent food, this lovely cottage is surrounded by woodland and meadows overlooking a traditionally made "straw bale barn" that serves as an artist's studio used by the owner, who lives next door.

For those guests who enjoy walks and cycle rides, then the South Downs National Park offers over 600 square miles of woodland and heathland to venture over.

Or if you are charmed by quaint tea rooms and browsing around antique shops, the market towns of Lewes and Alfiston are only short drives away and just the places to spend a day.

Heathfield also has a mixture of small shops and country pubs with restaurants.

This lovely cottage, tucked away in rural Sussex, is a perfect choice whether you are looking for a romantic weekend or an adventure packed holiday.
