Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

Gorgeously romantic detached annexe with stunning views across an area of outstanding natural beauty. Generously proportioned studio room with french doors to large private balcony with tree growing through it. Spiral staircase to downstairs kitchenette and shower room. Access to beautiful garden shared with the owner's family which backs onto open fields. Self catering.

Tucked away in historically rich 1066 country it is ideally located for walking, horse riding, cycling and painting. There is a strong arts and crafts movement locally and there are plenty of good pubs that serve excellent food within easy reach. For nature lovers there is an abundance of local bird life and the nearby marshes and levels on the way to the beach at Pevensey (15 minutes by car). 5 mins from the South Downs National Park it is within easy reach of Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Brighton, Ashdown (Pooh Bear) Forest and Forest Row Country Park. There is fishing at the local trout farm, golf, tennis, a windmill, Herstmonceux Castle and a Science Centre. Other nearby attractions include the Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park, Michelham Priory, the White Horse at Alfriston and Long Man at Wilmington.

It's on a tiny little lane with trees meeting over the road in places. There are lots of public footpaths including one that goes through next door's land and down through fields to the woods. Dogs that don't attack cats are welcome so long as the owners do no let them run loose unattended in the garden (especially near the vegetables) or leave them locked in on their own and make use of the pooper scooper! There is wifi but it's country wifi - ie not slow but not superfast.

Treetops is an ideal retreat or lovenest - it's wonderful space for getting away from it all and right into the countryside; to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature; to heal, create music or art or to study. It's very much a cosy country property rather than a stylish hotel setting but it's nicely and very comfortably furnished in rustic style. Horses clop along the lane outside and birdsong fills the air. There is a farmer along the lane who has equipment in use and large vehicles during the week sometimes so it's more reliably peaceful at weekends. The owner is a music teacher who lives in the main house with one child. There's a pergola with a built-in barbecue and seating which you are welcome to use or share should the owner be there at the time of your visit. It's possible to have the fridge/freezer stocked with a variety of locally sourced food on request including meat from the farm shop and wonderful cheeses and vegetables. Similarly should you require a bottle of chilled champagne on arrival this can be arranged with the owner.

For single parents or parent/child quality time the garden is ideal, with a brick-built Wendy house and a wooden climbing frame/swing/slide set and more swings and hammocks from the trees, including one suitable for adults from the major oak in the front garden. There are two ponds protected by mesh and fencing respectively. A high chair can be provided on request but there are no stair gates so it's not suitable for toddlers.

Although smoking is not allowed inside, it is permitted on the balcony.
