Superb holiday accommodation overlooking the sea next to Hastings Country Park
A fantastically bright and airy three storey home that has the most fabulous views over the garden and beyond to the cliff tops above Fairlight. On a clear day you can see the coast of France and by night the lights along the French coastline.
Knowle Croft is attached to the owners' home yet is totally private. It is presented to an exceptionally high standard with clean modern furnishings. The gardens extend to over two acres and gently slope away from the house; guests are invited to enjoy the grounds with its feature ponds.
Set on a hill this is a split level home with the main entrance on the middle floor. Step into the wonderfully bright lounge with its feature balcony and enjoy what a truly open setting this is. The house will sleep four in two bedrooms found on the top floor. The main bedroom has a double bed and looks to the south taking advantage of the great views from the top of the house. The second bedroom is fitted with twin beds. There is a shower room on the lower floor where there is a spacious kitchen and dining area that open out onto a private patio reserved for guests.
Since there are three ponds located close to the house, Knowle Croft is unsuitable for young children and as such we cannot accept families with children under seven years of age.

The East Sussex region
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.
The medieval town of Rye is 8 miles away. A visit to the Heritage Centre is a must, where you can watch the town model's 'Sound & Light' show, which goes into detail about the history & the colourful past of Rye and its inhabitants. Or amble around the many antique shops in the Strand Quay and hunt out a bargain!
This whole area is of course 1066 Country and we could comment forever about what there is to see and do. Suffice to say, no visit would be complete without a trip to Battle and Battle Abbey. Read up about it again under 'Places to Visit' for East Sussex.
The house is within a half mile of the coastal footpath that runs along the sandstone cliff edge, and with peaceful walks along local lanes and footpaths the glorious views out to sea are easily accessible.
Fairlight is a small village on the coast amidst breathtaking rolling hills, three miles east of Hastings with its nearby villages of Pett and Pett Level that are equally picturesque. The area forms part of the Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve that stretches from Hastings to Cliff End where there is access to the beach at Pett Level. Further east there are long stretches of beach towards Winchelsea making it very popular with walkers and those interested in wildlife.
The Country Park has over 267 hectares of ancient woodland, heathland and grassland together with three miles (5km) of dramatic cliffs and coastline. Lying within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most of the park has been designated a Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is a designated Local Nature Reserve.Although Hastings is only three miles to the west, it feels much further away. Hastings Old Town sits at the foot of the Hastings Cliff Railways, the East Lift in fact links the old town with the Country Park and the railway is currently Britain's steepest.
