Stay in this beautiful thatched holiday cottage on the fringes of Battle.

Be part of a picture postcard setting at the Thatched Cottage, just two miles to the west of Battle. This English 17th Century cottage is very atmospheric with its traditional beams, old fashioned lighting and furnishings. Step inside and smell the open fire burning in the great Inglenook fireplace and take yourself back hundreds of years. This cottage has been lovingly restored by its owners and retains the magic and period character of the age yet offers you the comforts of modern living.

Set in an acre of beautiful gardens and grounds that back onto the Normanhurst Forest it is a private setting beside the owners' own home and is accessed through secure oak gates. The cottage will sleep up to three adults or two adults and two children (over the age of 12) in two bedrooms, one being a double and the other with twin beds. Upstairs there is also a traditional bathroom with bath and telephone style shower in keeping with the period of the building.

The main living room is beautifully presented and is split cleverly into two with the dining area separated from the sitting room by traditional cottage posts. The 'cottage kitchen' is spacious and like any quintessential English cottage would not be complete without a traditional Aga. For your convenience an electric oven and hob is also provided.

For anyone wanting additional accommodation for six or for just some flexibility there is extra room in the Lodge, a wonderful contemporary home for two that is set next to the owners' home. We feature the Lodge in the same Sussex Weald section on our website. Such is the privacy and setting here it is only for guest enjoyment and regretably other visitors cannot be accommodated.

The East Sussex region

Three miles to the south Hastings Old Town is full of historic buildings and quaint streets and is particularly famous for its beach fishing fleet, the largest in Europe. Much of the tradition has been kept and the net drying huts are today preserved at the top of the beach and sit amongst the many fresh fish stores at the foot of the cliffs. The Shipwreck and Coastal Heritage Museum is also found here and worth visiting; we carry a link under our 'Places to Visit' section.

This whole area is of course 1066 Country and we could comment forever about what there is to see and do. Take a look at all our 'Places to Visit' for East Sussex.


The Thatched Cottage is just two miles to the west of the historic town of Battle and Battle Abbey. The magnificent Abbey is so central to the town and a visit here takes you to the heart of 1066 Country. The Abbey was of course founded by William the Conqueror on the site of the Battle of Hastings and today is an English Heritage site. When William died he left many gifts in the Abbey that include his royal cloak and a portable altar used on his campaigns. Today the Abbey has a wealth of interactive displays and a cafe that offers wonderful views across the battlefield.
