This beautifully decorated traditional cottage is situated within easy reach of the village amenities and countryside beyond, making it a great choice for walkers and friends and family get togethers.

Set in the charming Sussex village of Staplecross, this property is just a short stroll from the local shop and pub. Beyond the village, the market town of Rye is well worth a visit with its selection of independent shops and cafes, while the nearby vineyards make for a great day out. The picture perfect Bodiam Castle is just a short drive and why not enjoy a trip on the Kent & Sussex Steam Railway to Tenterden, another pretty market town. For beach lovers, the fantastic Kent and East Sussex coastline is close by and for those looking to explore the local countryside, there are a number of easily accessible footpaths.

Enter this charming cottage into a small hallway where there is space for dropping off coats and boots. The cosy lounge features comfortable seating, perfect for cosying up in front of the wood burner or the Smart TV on a chilly evening. The kitchen is contemporary and well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, and DAB radio. A door leads from the kitchen into the small conservatory where there is a dining table and four chairs, a cosy spot for reading, and access to the decked garden. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one king-size bedroom with a Smart TV and wood burner and one single bedroom with an additional single pull out bed (made up on request). The shower room has a shower and WC.

Outside, the decked garden is fully enclosed, with a table and chairs for enjoying an al fresco meal and stepsleading to the upper terrace, a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the countryside views. Parking is unrestricted opposite the property, subject to availability.

This is a lovely period cottage, very well equipped, and very comfortable. It provides easy access to the Rye, Hastings and Tunbridge Wells areas, as well as several National Trust properties such as Bodiam Castle and Batemans, the home of Richard Kipling. The road outside is quite busy, but both front and back gardens were enclosed, so it didn't pRead morerove a problem for us. There were lovely woodland walks for the ddog, not too far away, and he had a wonderful time! Would definitely recommend. Hide

Nice, comfortable cottage, more dog tolerable than dog friendly due to busy road and outdoor area.

The cottage is situated close to great destinations all a short drive away. It had everything you need to cook meals and a good oven/hob. The main road outside does have a lot of fast traffic and so we wouldnt recommend walking along the road at night. We found the cottage cold and needed a fire most nights (plus we used the additional oil filled rRead moreadiator in the otherwise un-heated breakfast room). The door jams are also very low to the bathroom and twin room (5ft max) - ouch!! Hide

Lovely property! We had a very nice stay here over New Year. Large fireplace which made the room very warm and cosy. Lots of lovely features and attention to detail in the cottage. Great location, close to the coast and lots of National Trust sites. Would definitely recommend.

An enjoyable stay, with many lovely days out. The cottage has a pleasing interior, but mind the low beams. We didn't use the garden because of it's tricky access.
