Memorable stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to discover this cottage. It was very clean and full of character but had all mod cons. The bonus was that it was set adjacent to the owners' magnificent manor house and equally magnificently designed award winning garden. The owners, Anne and Graham, were very welcoming and friendly as were their gardeners Steve and Julie. We only stayed for a short break. Next time our visit will be much longer!

An English Country Cottage and Garden

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a short break in Alfriston to visit family who live in nearby Seaford and also to enjoy the array of walking opportunities in the Cuckmere valley and South Downs. The cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy both the exquisite and substantial gardens and beautiful walks direct from your door. The cottage itself is tastefully and sympathetically appointed and was a welcome haven to come back to after a day out exploring with exceptionally tired feet!

The owners were very welcoming and friendly but also respectful of our privacy as guests. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending and hope to visit again soon.

Wonderful cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage - we had a great week's holiday here in beautiful surroundings whilst completing the South Downs Way. The cottage is well equipped and supremely comfortable, we felt really at home and didn't want to leave! Great local walks, super local pubs and lovely chats with Geoff and Anne who made us feel so welcome and relaxed in the fantastic grounds of Follers Manor. Don't hesitate to book this cottage - we will be back!

Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Anne and Geoff for allowing us a few days in this lovely hideaway. We had our 2 children and dog with us and all were very happy! The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. It's such a peaceful and beautiful place to stay and explore from. The children walked the furthest they've walked along the river and slept very well in the cosy beds! We shall definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage. Thank you.

Beautiful Cottage and Garden

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Alfriston having stayed in the Youth Hostel (now closed) in the 1960's. Staying in Fullers Cottage was a long way up in comfort from the YHA! Comfortable, clean and fully fitted it makes a great base from which to visit this part of Sussex. If you dont want to travel far just sit in the beautiful garden Anne and Geoff have created at the rear of the Manor House overlooking the Cuckmere Valley.

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

My husband is a keen amateur Astronomer. We suffer from very little light pollution for the south east. So if the night is clear and you're interested there is quite a view to the stars. If you would like to study the sun he also has a Solar Scope which allows you to safely look at the sun. The area attracts cyclists, windsurfers and para-gliders. There is kayaking on the river at 7 Sisters Country Park. Of course instead you could just walk to your hearts content stopping at village pubs for lunch. If history is your thing, Alfriston's Clergy House was the first property bought by the National Trust. There are a great many other Historic attractions in the area. For younger guests and young at heart adults there is one of the best small zoos in the UK. Please check out Drusillas Zoo website, it really is worth a visit only 2 miles from the cottage. We are situated between Eastbourne, Brighton and Lewes which you can get to by driving or train. The surrounding countryside is amazing.

Coast/Beach:

Approximately 2-3 miles along river to coast (Seven Sisters Country Park). 3 miles by car.

Travel:

Gatwick is the nearest airport about 45 minutes away. 20 minutes from Newhaven Port. Trains to London go from Seaford and Berwick.

Further Details:

Alfriston has a number of independent shops and restaurants. While Seaford approx. 2 miles has all you would expect from a small town. We are more or less in the middle of a triangle between Eastbourne, Lewes and Brighton so you can take your pick for shopping.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: We have a large wildlife pond so please keep a close eye on young children, I would never forgive myself if there was an incident. Very well behaved pets are welcome. Parking for 2 cars but more space available for special occasions. Barbecue available if not in use. Outside: Table and chairs to side of cottage, sitting area under grapevine. We have a beautiful award winning garden with amazing views and a large wildlife pond which you are very welcome to wander or sit in (the garden not the pond!). The garden has featured on Channel 4's Landscape Man, Gardeners World and Alan Titchmarsh series "Britains Best Back Gardens". It has also appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers ranging from the Financial Times to a Shanghai garden magazine, we even made it onto the front cover of The English Garden magazine. As you can tell we were a little astounded at all the interest! If you are into Wildlife this is the garden for you. Please see the garden website www.follersmanor.co.uk Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen provided. Change of linen/towels and cleaned once a week.
