Find cottages in Sussex

Home to the most beautiful coast and countryside; Sussex is the perfect holiday escape whether you want a relaxing short break or action-packed adventure.

Walkers and cyclists will enjoy Sussex. This is great walking country or you could grab a bike and take to the network of quiet country roads. A boat trip is another great way to enjoy the scenery from a different aspect, take a leisurely cruise from Eastbourne to the lighthouse and discover a tranquil place to breathe.

You''ll find holiday cottages located within easy reach of all the region''s well known attractions and beauty spots both inland and at the coast and there''s an abundance of Blue Flag awarded beaches scattered along the coast. For a really atmospheric look at the coastline head to Beachy Head with its dramatic chalk cliffs, and make the time to stroll through one of the picturesque fishing harbours dotted around to pick up unique souvenirs and fresh seafood.

Places of interest of course include the vibrant coastal towns of Brighton, with its famous pier, Eastbourne and Bognor Regis as well as the delightful spa town of Tunbridge Wells (actually just over the Kent border) and lovely market towns like Horsham and historic Lewes.

If there''s one thing you can''t escape in Sussex, its history and the famous battle site of 1066 in Hastings holds a wealth of it, and offers a family friendly day out to explore one of history''s most important events. Similarly Arundel Castle could also be on your agenda; it sits majestically above the roof tops of the town below and is bursting at the seams with stories and relics.

For family fun, visit one of the county''s many animal parks; Drusillas Park at Alfriston is a paradise of small exotic animals or there''s the Ashdown Forest Llama Park, home to more than 100 llamas and Fishers Farm Park is great for getting the younger ones moving. The Blue Reef Aquarium at Hastings and Brighton Sealife Centre are the ultimate way to experience underworld treasures without getting your feet wet.

Be inspired by the birthplace of modern England, and come and see for yourself why so many people choose to holiday in Sussex. Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Sussex today.

    Ref: 30827


    Braynesmead cottage was built in the 1480’s and is apparently the oldest building in the village of Cuckfield. Full of character with an inglenook fireplace, low beams and steep creaky stairs. The garden is fully private and enclosed with a summerhouse as well as a raised outside dining area. The village of Cuckfield was on the main London to Brighton coaching route and once boasted 7 pubs and inns as up to 50 coaches a day would stop for accommodation, refreshments and change of horses, but when Haywards Heath was selected for the railway route, Cuckfield has remained unchanged, except there are now only 4 pubs. Cuckfield is said to be one of the prettiest Tudor villages in Britain and has a lot to explore from boutique shops, coffee and tea shops and Ockenden Manor, an Elizabethan manor house with Michelin star restaurant and spa. All 4 pubs serve food from pub grub to fine dining. From the cottage, which sits on the north end of the village, you can access public footpaths to other villages all with pubs serving food and less than 2 hours’ walk through the High Weald countryside. The South Downs National Park is only 20 minutes away at Clayton Windmills where there is parking. There are many historic homes and gardens close by including Wakehurst Place, Nymans Garden NT and only a 20-minute walk across the fields is Borde Hill, a Tudor mansion with 200 acres of gardens and woodland. If golf is your game, Cuckfield Golf Centre is only a ½ mile walk from the cottage which has a 18 hole course overlooking the High Weald, or you can visit Haywards Heath Golf Club, 3½ miles away. There is good shopping within 30 minutes of Cuckfield, with Lewes, Brighton and Horsham, all with their own unique character and boutique shops. Other attractions close by are the Bluebell Steam Railway, Glynbourne and Hickstead for polo or showjumping. Gatwick airport is only 30 minutes away and Haywards Heath railway station, on the main London to Brighton line, is only 3 miles with over 70 trains a day to London Bridge and Victoria Station, both taking around 45 minutes on the fast trains. The train service to Brighton is only 20 minutes. Shop 50 yards, pub and restaurant 220 yards.
