Key Info

  • Private garden

Tucked in the top corner of East Sussex close to Bewl Water and the beautiful Pashley Manor Gardens, this character ground floor weather boarded cottage dating from the 1780's is a gem. With traditional antique furniture it conveys a genuine period feel without compromising on the comfort you would expect.

The cottage is within half a mile of the picturesque village of Ticehurst so is well placed for enjoying the Sussex High Weald in the east of the county and the many visitor attractions locally such as Bodiam Castle, Batemans and to the south the gardens at Great Dixter.

With three bedrooms the cottage will sleep five guests. It is a lovely retreat that we anticipate will be appreciated in particular by the more 'mature traveller' who enjoys accommodation that is both traditional and homely. Step in through the front door into a cosy living room that combines with the dining area. Overlooking the garden there is also a conservatory with a sofa and armchairs, a lovely space to relax or take late afternoon tea following an enjoyable day out.

There are two double bedrooms, one with a magnificent king sized four poster bed and the other with a conventional double bed. Bedroom three is fitted with a single bed so the layout here can offer a degree of flexibility for guests. There is just the one bathroom which is fitted with a bath and separate shower cubicle. We should advise there is a step into the bathroom which guests with more limited mobility should be aware of.

To the rear there is a private garden offering seclusion and privacy with a mixture of mature bushes and shrubs.

About this location

The East Sussex region

Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester Harbour and Emsworth in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.

The chalk downland of the South Downs National Park cover a large part of Sussex from where they meet the sea at Beachy Head in East Sussex through to the Hampshire border near South Harting in the west.

Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex and Brighton and Hove on the Sussex coast is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Arundel and Lewes are two historic towns within the county both have imposing castles and are popular towns to visit.

The climate enjoyed in Sussex is above the average for Great Britain, which makes it ideal for visiting throughout the year.


The picturesque village of Ticehurst is deep in the Weald of Sussex amongst beautiful gently rolling countryside that continues east into Kent and the Garden of England. The village is within a mile of Bewl Reservoir. Covering 770 acres the reservoir supplies fresh water to the Medway towns, Thanet and Hastings. Around its circumference there are footpaths and cycle tracks, and with the sailing and windsurfing activity on the water it certainly is a popular attraction in the area.

One mile to the east of Alexandra Cottage, Pashley Manor Gardens is a quintessential English garden that has been opened to the public by its owners. It features imaginative planting, many fine trees, fountains, springs and large ponds to admire. A magnificent Grade I listed timber framed house sits within the grounds which is inhabited by the current owners.

Ticehurst is nicely situated for many of the attractions in the area. Both Batemans, once the home of Rudyard Kipling, and Bodiam Castle, one of the most famous and evocative castles in Britain are within a very easy drive, while heading into Kent, Scotney Castle and Sissinghurst Castle and Garden are within 30 minutes.

A short distance to the north is Royal Tunbridge Wells and due south is 1066 Country with Battle Abbey and Hastings less than 20 miles away.
