About this location

The East Sussex region

This self catering holiday cottage in Sussex is located close to the winding cobbled streets of Rye, ancient Winchelsea, the 1066 attractions of Battle, and the seaside resort of Hastings, complete with Rick Stein-acclaimed fish and chips! Hastings has a reputation for huge and colourful events throughout the year from Jack-in-the-green at May Bank Holiday to the Sussex Bonfire season in the autumn. There are events every week throughout the summer such as the Seafood and Wine festival, Old Town week, free outdoor theatre and much else besides.

For nature lovers and walkers staying at this holiday cottage in Sussex, the local ancient woods and Sussex countryside are a must, as is the Nature Reserve at Rye Harbour and Hastings Country Park. The 1066 long-distance way passes through the churchyard just 100 metres away from this self catering holiday cottage in Sussex and the surrounding farmland and woods are perfect for walking. Pett Level beach is wonderful and just a few minutes away from the luxury holiday cottage in Sussex. At low tide you can see the remains of the prehistoric submerged forest at this Sussex beach. There are also several National Trust houses within the Sussex area, golf within 6 miles of the holiday cottage and slightly further afield are the Sussex towns of Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells for you to enjoy during your stay at this holiday cottage in Sussex.

Why not visit the recently opened Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, situated right on the seafront and nestled between the famous Hastings fishing huts and the historic old town. The Jerwood Gallery, little sister of the influential Jerwood space in London, houses some of the most exciting paintings produced in the 20th and 21st centuries as well as supporting young artists through its charitable arm, the Jerwood Foundation. It is less than 10 minutes by car from the Granary.

Close to this self catering holiday cottage in Sussex there are several well-regarded pubs with CAMRA recognition. The excellent local pub, The Two Sawyers, is open all day and serves good food for those who may not wish to cook in this self catering holiday cottage in Sussex. It is just 4 minutes' drive away or a walk of 15 minutes through the Sussex woodland. Although there is a local supermarket 2 miles away from this luxury Sussex holiday cottage, you may enjoy exploring the excellent farm shops in the surrounding Sussex villages.
