Inviting Battle Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests
Ideally located for exploring the seaside towns of Hastings and Eastbourne, and the stunning landscape of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
S104343 is a stylishly presented semi-detached holiday home which is part of a 17th-century house adjoining the owner’s home in the village of Ninfield. Originally the village cobblers, it then became the local post office and now provides very welcoming accommodation. The attractive enclosed terrace at the rear of the property is a great place for an al fresco breakfast or catching the late afternoon sun with a good book.
The village sits on top of a ridge and it is said that William the Conqueror had his standard planted on the highest point during The Battle of Hastings in 1066. Smuggling was prevalent in the area and the village still has iron stocks and a whipping post! Visit Battle Abbey and Battlefield where the most celebrated confrontation to take place on English soil occurred. Battle itself is a delightful market town and an ideal destination for afternoon tea. During the 17th century, Battle was also the home of the gunpowder industry and the Battle Bonfire Boyes celebrate the gunpowder plot each November with a spectacular firework display. In fact, firework celebrations at different towns and villages in the area start as early as September.
There are beaches at Bexhill, where you can also take in a show at the art deco De La Warr Pavillion. Eastbourne, the heart of ’The Sunshine Coast’, and Hastings, with its fascinating old town, pier and castle ruins, are a short drive. Fishing is available at Herstmonceux Brick Farm Lakes, licence and day tickets are required. Visit Pevensey, Herstmonceux and the beautiful moated fairytale Bodiam Castle or stroll around antique shops in a historical setting in Rye or Royal Tunbridge Wells.
