Further details outdoors

The cottage is set in a third of an acre of garden and includes a shallow band of woodland behind the cottage, which supports a diversity of wild flowers and birdlife. Relax by the kidney shaped pond (approx. 8ft x 4ft and 20” deep) with its underwater lighting system and 'statue' water feature or enjoy the lawned areas extending into the woodland beyond. NB Small children must be supervised because of the unfenced pond.

The East Sussex region


One of the vicinity's lovely walks is the Wealdway, which meanders 1¼ miles to Chiddingly, a classic English village with church, pub (The Six Bells), cricket field and street of quaint cottages. Horam Manor (1½ miles to the north) offers fishing, nature trails, riding lessons and pottery painting, while for keen golfers there are courses at Horam Park (1 mile) and Wellshurst (3 miles). Gun Hill Cottage is also conveniently close to the award-winning Gun Inn (¼ mile), which is known for miles around for its superb food and atmosphere. There is a children's play area outside.

Further afield, but still within easy driving distance, are the ancient village of Alfriston, (8 miles) with quaint tearooms, oak-beamed pubs, antiquarian bookshops and Clergy House museum, and Seven Sisters Country Park (12 miles – bicycles may be hired) where the Cuckmere River meanders its way down to the sea and a shingle beach. Not far off is Birling Gap - a charming unspoilt beach with sand and rockpools at low tide, near Beachy Head. Lewes (12 miles - Sussex's historic county town), Eastbourne (13 miles - with leisure attractions for all the family) and Brighton (18 miles - the south of England's most vibrant seaside town) are also all within striking distance. This part of Sussex is rich in stately homes, gardens and literary legacy including Charleston, the Bloomsbury Group's country home, Bateman's, former home of Rudyard Kipling, Glyndebourne (the Opera House), the Gage family's Firle Place, and others.

"Beautiful location . In need of TLC."

The position was perfect as we were attending a wedding nearby. We found the cottage attractive and pleasantly equipped, but the cottage and garden appeared neglected. The hot water supply was erra… More

We're sorry to hear you weren't totally happy with your stay at Gun Hill Cottage but hope you enjoyed the weekend nevertheless; your comments are acknowledged. We do not allow pets at this property so it is unlikely the member of your party's allergic reaction would have been triggered by dog or cat hair. Hideaways Reservations team.
