This recently refurbished cottage, which was available for its first season in 2011, provides comfortable living accommodation for up to six people. With its own large, enclosed garden with garden room and patio area, it provides a safe environment for families.

It is 500 yards from the stunning, moated Bodiam Castle and grounds, while the Bodiam Station of the Kent and East Sussex steam railway is visible from the property. The River Rother is also nearby. There is a pub 500 yards away and a shop 4 miles away. Rye,Tenterden, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Battle and Hastings are all within a 30-minute drive of the property, making this the perfect base for anyone wishing to explore 1066 Country and beyond. It is ideally situated for walkers, with many footpaths accessible from the door.

The Old Cricket Pavilion is reached by a private lane leading only to the cottage itself and the adjacent farm. It overlooks open countryside from every aspect, with views of vineyards from the lounge. It is part of a working farm, so it is possible that livestock will be grazing in the field behind the cottage on occasions throughout the year.

About this location

The East Sussex region

The property is within 2 miles of the Kent/Sussex border and therefore offers visitors the chance to explore both counties. There are a multitude of places to visit including BATTLE (Abbey, historic battlefield and Yesterday's World), HASTINGS (Blue Reef Aquarium, Adventure Golf, Clambers Play Centre, Fishermen's Museum, Shipwreck Museum and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery) and RYE (Castle Museum, nature reserve and Camber Castle), numerous gardens including Pashley Manor, Merriments and Great Dixter, as well as Bateman's (the former home of Rudyard Kipling), Bewl Water, Bedgebury National Pinetum and Scotney Castle. For walkers, the area is criss-crossed with footpaths. For cyclists, the roads are generally quiet and there are miles of off-road tracks for all the family at Bedgebury, where cycle hire is available. Unspoilt countryside and open-air activities abound in this area. There are also plenty of places to eat, with a wide variety of menus.


Bodiam is a small village boasting a magnificent castle with moat and grounds. Visitors on foot are welcome to wander through the grounds and around the castle and are usually admitted free to the many events that are held here throughout the year. However, there is a small charge to go into the castle itself.

The River Rother runs through the village and in peak season a ferry operates from Bodiam Castle to Northiam. The castle is run by the National Trust and has a tea room and giftshop. The Castle Inn offers a warm welcome and serves a wide range of excellent food.

The KESR station that is visible from the cottage hosts many events incuding The Hop Pickers Weekend. Visitors can also go from Bodiam to Tenterden by steam train. Tenterden is a charming old market town and offers a wide range of shops.
