A charming, picturesque haven for couples looking to get away from it all this property offers self-contained accommodation in the wing of the owner’s home.

Region: With many quaint, seaside and market towns, historic sites and miles of glorious coastline to explore, Sussex has it all for a great holiday destination.
Town: Balcombe is one of the quintessentially English villages that surround Haywards Heath. It is situated in the heart of the High Weald and has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village itself is well-served by a range of shops, a tea-room and a pub, The Cowdray, which uses local produce to create dishes such as ‘Slow-cooked Old Spot Pork Belly’ – well worth a visit. The National Trust cares for a number of attractions in the area, such as Nymans Garden and Wakehurst Place – a vast stately home, set in stunning grounds. There are plenty of walks to be taken in the Weald Valley and many opportunities to spot wild-life in it's natural habitat. To travel further afield you can catch a train; London is just three quarters of an hour away and the seaside entertainment of Brighton is less than half an hour.

Clean, comfortable, quiet and well-equipped, this cottage is nicely situated for exploring Sussex.
Owners, who live next door, were very friendly & helpful.
Local pubs were adequate but expensive!

The cottage is very well sited to visit East and West Sussex and also Kent. We travelled far and wide each day and it was lovely to come home to a welcoming cottage that has everything we could want except a washing machine but landrettes are not far away. It has a lovely courtyard that would have been lovely in warmer weather and the owners are very friendly and obliging (even with a troubled car!!!). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to all couples.

Lovely to find such a pretty cottage in a rural setting yet close to many places of interest. It was just the right size for 2 of us, and we have found too few properties like this. Other than this it seems too long ago to give many more details, a pity we didn't have the opportunity nearer the time!

Situated in a beautiful part of the Sussex Weald our holiday property was far better than than the photo led us to believe. It was comfortable, well-equipped and had beautiful views. The owners could not have been more helpful. It was extremely well located for a range of days out - for National Trust members there was almost too much choice. Kent, East and West Sussex were all easily accessible with beautiful scenery, coastal and inland, and a number of intersting places to visit. Certainly excellent value for money - I hope we will return there in the future.
