Rose Cottage is a little gem. If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a picture book cottage with character in abundance, then you'll have to go far to beat Rose Cottage. It is set in the centre of the beautiful village of Middleton-on-Sea in West Sussex.
The cottage is Grade II listed and dates back hundreds of years, with the first formal records of it dating from 1606. It was lovingly restored over a 2 year period by previous owners, using traditional building materials and techniques, in conjunction with the English Heritage. Some of this work is visible through viewing panels in the cottage and it won a Conservation Award in 2008. The cottage can also boast a 4-star rating from the English Quality in Tourism scheme. The accommodation consists of a cosy sitting room with a wood-burning stove for the chilly winter evenings and an HD TV with FreeSat channels. Internet access is also available. There is a well equipped kitchen, which includes a slim-line dishwasher. The double bedroom is a particular feature, with its exposed beams and its bed with its foot board made up from old stocks! There is a further bedroom with bunk beds and a modern style wet-room with shower, wash basin and toilet.
Outside, the cottage is set in beautiful gardens with well stocked flower beds and lawned areas. There is a Bistro set so guests can enjoy afternoon tea 'al fresco', or for just relaxing. There is off-road parking available, with a converted garage as a utility room and secure storage area for sports equipment or a cherished vehicle.
