The picturesque village of Burwash is only 1.5 miles away is renowned for its old smuggling connections and hence the skull and crossbones on some of the gravestones in the churchyard.

Both are only 25 minutes drive and in Hastings Old town there is one of the last remaining fishing fleets in the South of England so you can get the best Fish & Chips in the world! At the other end of the scale the owners can also recommend a Chef who can come to cook for your group at the cottage if you wish.
