Description

This beautifully presented thatched cottage is the perfect location for a quiet break away.


Built in the 17th century, Thatched Cottage boasts oodles of character and charm with original features kept, including beams (some of which are low), a wood burner set in an inglenook with a bread oven, and an Aga that provides all the hot water. Set within 1066 country, this detached cottage resides in the owner’s grounds, and is situated in a small hamlet, with direct road access to the delightful market town of Battle. Battle will be every history enthusiast’s dream, as this was where William Duke of Normandy and the Saxon King Harold fought with their bows and arrows and changed the course of English history. The grounds back onto Normanhurst Forest which provides an array of wildlife spotting opportunities, including foxes and badgers which coexist with the owner’s two goats, chickens and parrots. Opportunities for walking, riding and fishing are all on the doorstep. Once guests have explored the tea rooms, antique shops and galleries in Battle, head towards Hastings and then on to the beach where you can purchase freshly caught fish from the boats. The Cinque Port Town of Rye is slightly further afield, where guests will find miles of golden sand dunes at Camber. In the other direction visit the Science Centre at Herstmonceux. Alternatively, beautiful gardens can be seen at Great Dixter and Pashley Manor. Burwash will reveal Rudyard Kipling’s Home at Bateman’s (National Trust), and castles can be explored at Bodiam and Leeds. Good rail services to London from Battle station. Beach 3 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    What a gorgeous thatched cottage in a very pretty town of Battle. It was really nice to have a lend of our very own thatched cottage with all its little quirkiness. Leo and Kate made us very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very pretty area of England.

    Nice old house with low ceilings and a beautiful fireplace. It is a pity that the “Aga” is not fully in operation. This would make the picture complete. The lovely garden is shared with the owners so there is not much privacy. The owners are friendly people and very helpful. There eggs are delicious! The house borders next to a busy road. So when you leave the driveway you need an extra pair of eyes. We had a great fortnight in the thatched cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; It was lovely meeting you and your family. Thank you for your feed back. The Aga is fully functional and is serviced annually. It is programmed for cooking heating and hot water. Should you have need assistance with the programming of the Aga we would have happily helped you. The gardens are 2 acres in all in which the Thatched Cottage has its own private fenced garden, which is approximately ½ acre. As for the busy road unfortunately your visit to the UK coincided with several big events and necessary road works taking place in the area. We have no control over these events and we would hope to welcome you again.

    The owners are really nice and if it's old world charm you are looking for look no further than Thatched cottage, but beware the low beams (you will bang your head). The main negative for us was that there is only a shower attachment in a bath and no stand-under shower. The mattress on the double bed was the best ever in a rental. The extensive gardens are a delight. Access to the road must be done with care. The Squirrel pub 1/2 mile up the road is a gem in every respect.
