  • "The cottage was welcoming and comfortable, the owners where very friendly and helpful."

    The cottage had everything you need for family cosy nights in and cooking a family meal, and the site the cottage is on was fine and a great safe space for the children to explore, plus local to drive to all the local beauty spots would definitely go again Thankyou.

  • "We had a wonderful time at the cottage."

    Although there were no bath towels available initially, the owner went out of his way to provide us with some straight away. The cottage was in a wonderful peaceful setting as well and it was a lovely stay. Many thanks.

  • "I struggled with the steep steps and the inclines but that is probably more to do with my heart problem."

    I did think there would be a secure place at the cottage for dog to run freely but otherwise beautifully peaceful surroundings and the cottage was ideal thank you.

  • "I stayed at Lilyrose cottage for 4 nights just recently, it is an absolutely beautifuly clean cottage, with a welcoming feel, with added little extras to make your stay totally home from home, the owners thought of everything and the cottage is very well equipped, the surroundings the cottage sits in, are also very beautiful, peaceful and tranquil, i did have some lovely strolls around the estate, i would highly recommend this little gem for a peaceful, relaxing stay, but saying that, it is not to far away from local amenities and towns for exploring, thankyou for letting us stay in your delightful cottage."

The property

This well-presented, detached bungalow sits on a rural site with similar properties on the outskirts of Stone Cross, East Sussex.

Well-presented with an open-plan living space and enjoying access to on-site facilities, Lilyrose Cottage is a perfect choice for a family of four looking to getaway to Sussex for a little while.

Upon arrival there is dedicated off-road parking in the car park, however you can drop off your bags just outside the property.

Enter through the stable door into the open-plan living space; take over the kitchen as you become familiar with appliances, whilst the rest of the group lays the dining table with crockery and cutlery in time for a big feast.

Move over to the corner sofa and flick on the TV for entertainment, pondering on the next adventure.

As the evening comes to a close, freshen up in the bathroom with choice of bath and shower over before retiring to either of the bedrooms; there is a double and a twin with zip/link beds.

At the rear of the property is a small patio with table, chairs and barbecue, perfect for enjoying a grilled feast in the summer months.

On-site there are some facilities; take a splash in the outdoor pool, allow the children to explore the play area or cast your rod in one of the fishing lakes.

Head out the park and within two miles there are two pubs, The Holly Blue and The Red Lion, where you can enjoy a pint and traditional pub fare, whilst there are two garden centres just outside the park which offer cafés and farmshops.

The village of Pevensey is close and is home to Pevensey Castle, one of the last remaining ‘Saxon Shore’ forts, whilst slightly further along lies Eastbourne, where you can enjoy beach days, explore the Victorian pier and a host of amusements, the Towner Art Gallery, the historic Redoubt Fortress and the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway.

Alternatively, travel to the historic town of Hastings; here you can tour Hastings Castle and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.

Lilyrose Cottage is a fantastic base for exploring this part of Southern England.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

The hamlet of Stone Cross is located close to the village of Polegate, near to the seaside towns of Pevensey and Eastbourne. Stone Cross has a few essential amenities and Polegate and Hailsham several pubs and tea shops to choose from and the shops provide all your daily requirements. Near to the cottage are several places where you can access the Cuckoo Trail, which has 14 miles of walks and cycle ways, from where you can take in the Sussex air as you enjoy the views. The village of Pevensey, with its famous castle, gives you the chance to step back in time, where you can explore the towering ruins or delve into the dungeons; as one of England's oldest castles, it is a fun day out for all the family, plus Pevensey Bay is a haven for wildlife, or whilst you’re here why not take a dip in the sea? For children, young and old, a day at Drusillas Zoo offers a day to remember, or perhaps spend a day in the village of Alfriston, where you will find cobbled streets and antiques shops. With excellent transport links to all parts of Sussex and into London, Stone Cross makes an excellent place to stay when exploring the coast, or the many historic towns, which you will find nearby.
