On the edge of the small village of Hooe, where the local publican James Blackman once operated a notorious smuggling gang in the 1700s, lie these 19th-century barn conversions. High House Holiday Cottage No 1 (ref POOV) and Wheelwrights (ref UKC3510) each provide thoughtful holiday accommodation for two guests. Enjoy rural views from the patio and stroll around the owner’s orchard. Close to the unspoilt pebble beach at Pevensey Bay, see the castle with two-thirds of its towered walls still standing and maybe spot “The Pale Lady of Pevensey”.
The award-winning beaches at Eastbourne are a short drive away, with access to the South Downs National Park, or stroll along the pier. Enjoy a concert at the bandstand, or visit Eastbourne’s Sovereign Harbour where you can take a boat trip out to the iconic cliffs at Beachy Head. At the heart of “1066 Country” is the attractive market town of Battle, perfect for enjoying afternoon tea, or finding a souvenir of your holiday in one of the art galleries and experience the famous battle itself through dramatic film and audio tours witnessing the event that changed the course of English history – The Battle of Hastings. Take a picnic to Glynebourne, visit National Trust houses, castles and gardens, or book a wine tasting tour at an award-winning vineyard. Good rail connections from Battle to London for further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 4 guests.

Very disappointed with cleanliness and outside space over grown with brambles running alive with ants not secure for dogs

Mr Moon was very friendly, meeting us on arrival, with a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. The cottage was well located for the places we planned to visit. The Red Lion pub in the village had a good atmosphere, serving good food on both nights. However we found the furniture in the living area was not as shown on the website and had been replaced with dated sofa and chair. There was dust in areas including a copy of Hello magazine dated 2015 under the bed. The garden area was very scruffy with overgrown brambles/roses and shrubs and the garden furniture had not been cleaned in a while.

We enjoyed our stay at High House. The cottage is very well positioned for touring East Sussex. Cottage has all you need for a comfortable stay. Nice little orchard for taking dog for exercise, also little gravel patio area outside cottage was useful. The owner was most helpful and kind as we broke down on the way. Some tourist information leaflets would have been useful for us. Only suggestion would be a shelf in the shower to put shower gel, shampoo etc. We have found this a problem in several cottages we have stayed in, there is nowhere to put things in the shower.
