    “A lovely cottage - very cosy and comfortable.”

    We were only there for two nights and we all wished it could have been longer. We visit East Sussex often and we will definitely stay here again. The pub is just down the road and was also excellent.

The property

Gun Hill Cottage should certainly be at the top of your list if you're searching for a rural retreat for the family or with friends in this idyllic part of England.

Care and attention has gone into its refurbishment with no expense spared in making this a really comfortable and homely place to stay.

The pretty, rose-covered, weather-boarded exterior will certainly catch your eye as you venture up the front path.

Once inside you'll be won over by the charming character the cottage exudes, with its original features such as the beamed ceilings, yet all the comforts you'd expect from a contemporary home are there for you to enjoy.

Subtle tones dominate throughout adding to the feeling of tranquillity.

There is plenty to entertain here and you may find yourself whiling away more than a few hours in the games room with its pool table.

Outside you have third of an acre of garden and woodland to explore as well as a lovely pond to lounge by at the end of a busy day. Please note a starter pack of logs, kindling, firelighters and matches is included.

About the location


Battle 12 miles; Royal Tunbridge Wells 14 miles; Bexhill on Sea 17 miles; Eastbourne 17 miles; Hastings 20 miles

Heathfield is a market town in Sussex known for it's annual fair the Heffle Cuckoo Fair each April, and the Heathfield Show which takes place each May. Its busy town centre offers an assortment of shops, takeaways, restaurants and pubs. One of the most popular visitor attractions in the area is the Cuckoo Trail, a shared track for walkers and cyclists, with horses allowed on some of the sections. An extension has also been constructed to the south into Eastbourne and the trail has become part of National Cycle Network Route 21. Scattered around Heathfield are several towns, villages and hamlets including Rushlake Green with its picturesque village green and quaint looking pub serving excellent local food. For a day out to remember why not visit Rudyard Kipling's home Batemans, which is located at Burwash. This National Trust property is very much how Rudyard Kipling and his wife Carrie left it, with this beautiful 17th century house providing a much needed sanctuary to this world-famous writer. With so much to do inland you could be overlooking how close the coastline is to Heathfield. With Eastbourne, Hastings and Bexhill on Sea all less than a 30 minute drive you should leave a day to beachcomb your way along the shoreline and savour the salty air as it braces you ready to enjoy a visit to The Stade art gallery in Hastings or The De La Warr Pavilion with its exhibitions and music events in Bexhill on Sea. Tunbridge Wells is also a 25 minute drive away with its Georgian and Victorian architecture. With so many exciting places to visit and things to do and see within a short distance means Heathfield is a secret no longer!

Note: Unfenced pond is approx 1'deep. Please supervise small children.
