  • "We had a fantastic stay at Archery Retreat."

    It was immaculate throughout. As a group of 10, 6 adults and 4 children, we found we had plenty of space and privacy with plenty of toilets/bathrooms available. The bathrooms are luxurious! Dale was so accommodating and helpful, making herself available to take in a delivery of balloons as a surprise for our birthday guest. We all commented on the tasteful design choices and lovely furniture. My mum was so impressed with the sofa, she has been out shopping to find one similar! A short walk from the beach, where the children loved running around and playing football. An absolutely beautiful house in a great location. Thanks so much for having us!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the house, the amenities, and the location. It was an absolute pleasure to host you and your family and I look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Property Owner

  • "The house is beautiful, and a very short walk to the seafront, the sea can be seen from upstairs so you know it’s not far, all the lovely little touches, fresh flowers in the rooms, the welcome pack, chocolate, bread, marmalade and wine, very special touches throughout the house, facial wipes, cotton pads etc in the bathrooms, very nice, thank you."

    Our only moan would be that we booked the house thinking it was a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom (we were 5 couples so we all appreciate having our own bathrooms) and it was actually 5 toilets, spread over the 4 floors but only 3 actual bathrooms, 2 being en-suite and the other 3 bedrooms having to share one bathroom, which is not the end of the world I know but did cause slight issues when we first checked in, but other than that little blip the house was lovely and we would highly recommend it. Thank you

    Hi Paul, Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback. We are so thrilled you enjoyed the house, location, amenities and the warm welcome. It was our pleasure to host you and your group. Please accept my apologise that your expectations regarding the number of bathrooms were not met. I have contacted Sykes Cottages to correct this error in their records and on their website to ensure only correct data is promoted. I’m sorry you had to experience that. Thanks for sharing & you are welcome back anytime. Dale@ArcheryRetreat Property Owner

  • "On arriving at Archery Retreat I was amazed at how beautiful the house was as soon as you walk into entrance hall it feels welcoming."

    The owner had left us a welcome pack with essentials and a beautiful hand written welcome card. Every room was spotlessly clean and there was everything you needed in the kitchen. The lower level was ideal for my daughter and the two doggies it was like a self contained flat . All of the bathrooms were fitted to the highest standards our favourite feature the roll top baths. This house really has to be seen to appreciate just how wonderful it really is. Thankyou Dale for an amazing experience we hope one day to come back again x

    Thank you Janis for your really lovely feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed the house. It was wonderful to host you and i look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

The property

Situated in the bustling seaside resort town of St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, lies this outstanding, Grade II-listed holiday home, Archery Retreat.

With a wealth of on-site facilities, exquisite Georgian decor, and great positioning to nearby attractions and amenities, this fabulous property offers everything you'll need for a memorable stay with family or friends near the Sussex coastline.

As you step into the property, you'll be greeted by wonderfully-maintained, elegant living spaces, including a stylish, fully-equipped kitchen/diner where you and your loved ones can rustle up tasty meals to be savoured around the dining table whilst you gaze out upon breathtaking views of the not-so-distant sea.

As the evening grows darker, treat yourself to a long, hot bath in the large, well-appointed family bathroom before retiring to one of five plush bedrooms, each tastefully-laid out and waiting to whisk you off to a night's refreshing embrace.

If you fancy exploring your local area, take the short walk into St Leonards-on-Sea where you can enjoy a pint at The Horse & Groom, book a table at the seafront spot of La Vista, or even just spend a day lounging and reading a book on the beach of St. Leonards On Sea Beach.

Battle is a brief car trip north, where the historic landmark of Battle Abbey can be found, along with the English Heritage - 1066 Battle of Hastings Museum, must-visit locations for history buffs.

Slightly further afield, a drive east along the coast will bring you to Rye, a town home Rye Castle Museum and Viewpoint, as well as the Rye Heritage Centre, all worthy of your time whilst you’re in the area.

Whatever time of year, bring your family and friends for an unforgettable stay in Archery Retreat.
