Description from owner


This charming detached, contemporary holiday cottage has an open plan living area, luxurious bathrooms and two beautiful bedrooms. You’ll find handmade British soft furnishings with decorations in Farrow and Ball colours, granite worktops to the well-fitted hand made kitchen. There are two modern bathrooms with vanity cupboards. The comfy sitting area has a Sony LED HD Smart TV with freeview, WiFi and a wood-burning stove. There is underfloor heating throughout and heated towel rails.

The accommodation is designed to an exceptionally high standard in a rural, tranquil setting. Fresh flowers and a welcome basket of basic supplies greet you upon arrival together with a complimentary bottle of wine.

The entrance door leads from a porch into the fully equipped, open plan kitchen with a Neff electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The open plan kitchen leads to the sitting/dining room featuring the pretty wood burning stove, that is made up with logs ready to light, ensuring you are cosy throughout your stay.

The master bedroom (ground floor) features a luxurious king size bed with Egyptian cotton linen, a snuggly designer throw, comfy pillows and duvet. This leads to a modern en suite bathroom with a large shower bath, vanity cupboard and w.c.

The second bedroom (first floor) has twin beds and is open plan to its private staircase and lobby with an en suite wet room (ground floor). The spacious walk in shower has two showerhead options. This is a fun space with privacy from the ground floor living area. Automatic black out blinds add to the finishing touches of this unique bedroom space.

Both bathrooms have heated towel rails, Egyptian cotton towels and welcome toiletries.

Deerkeepers’ enjoys its own landscaped garden with terraces, outdoor furniture and BBQ (during the warmer weather).

There are country walks from the door onto a bridleway and the nearby Ashdown Forest (2,396 hectares). This cottage is in the gardens of an old coach house, which once formed part of a larger estate; therefore it has the benefit of a private tennis court and small home gym. Guests are welcome to use these at their own risk. For further information please contact the owner direct.

A car is recommended.

Whilst we love dogs, we do not have pets to stay. Nor do we have smoking anywhere within the cottage. The cottage is unsuitable for young children due to the steps, stairs and wood burner. Older children are welcome. For further information please contact the owner direct.

There is a detached one bedroom cottage close by, ideal for family groups and friends wanting independent accommodation. See Woodpeckers Cottage.

Very Good

“Beautiful little cottage, home from home.”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2018

A wonderful cottage with everything you need. Very comfortable. Angie has made a folder with lots of places to visit. There are loads of NT properties, which we loved. The beach is about 40 minutes away, but there are lots of other places to visit. Angie also created a lovely garden which adds to the peaceful atmosphere. There are huge walks available. I will definitely be back. Karen

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for a lovely review of Deerkeepers, I am glad you enjoyed staying there. Would love to welcome you back. Best Wishes

Great property, nice area, friendly owner, had a wonderful time with my family, would recommend to all

Owner's reply: Thank you for kindly giving such a great review. So pleased that you and your family were able to all get together here for a relaxing break with lovely weather too!

“Lovely stay in secluded spot”

Reviewed 13 May 2017

We had a lovely stay at Angie's cottage. Such a peaceful cul de sac surrounded by beautiful garden and trees. Angie was very helpful and the cottage was pristine and welcoming when we arrived. Great spot to explore the nearby forest and farms. Our kids loved the tennis court and saying hello to the horses nearby. A 1 minute drive to wonderful Plawhatch farm where fresh biodynamic produce means you don't even need to go to town! Lovely exploring to be done on the farm also. Thank you Angie - we'll miss you!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your lovely review, it was such a pleasure having you to stay. I shall miss your beautiful daughters and their delicious cooked treats!

“Beautiful Cottage”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2016

Our stay in Deerkeepers Cottage was fantastic, we had everything we needed and Angela was a great host. The cottage is fitted our beautifully and has plenty of space for a family while the log burning fire ensures you are warm and cosy. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for a few days or longer as we did.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to give such a super review, delighted you enjoyed your stay. Have a very happy Christmas.
