About the property

Cottage in Fletching, Nr. Uckfield, Sussex, England - In High Weald AONB Close To London And The South Coast

"The Lodge" is a beautifully finished self contained holiday let in the middle of a working alpaca farm. The Lodge is fully equipped with a separate double bedroom with a king size bed. In the sitting room / kitchen, the facilities include a modern fitted kitchen, single sofa bed, flat screen TV with Freeview, Blu-ray / DVD and Wi-Fi. Tastefully decorated, fully insulated and centrally heated, The Lodge is perfect for peace and tranquillity whilst maintaining every creature comfort.

About Vicki and Chris Agar

Chris and Vicki have lived in the village for the last 18 years and have run the farm all that time. The alpacas arrived in 2000 and are an integral part of the farm as a business. We have approximately 100 alpacas and 4 llamas on the farm all of whom are halter trained and we also offer alpaca walking as an optional extra.

Vicki and Chris Agar purchased this cottage in 1997

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Envious of anyone with the opportunity to stay here!"

My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic stay over Christmas and New Year.

The lodge is really delightful; bright, well-equipped, modern and very comfortable. Huge shower, comfy bed.

Vicky and Chris couldn't have been better hosts, even lending me wellies and sending back a DVD I'd forgotten.

The Alpaca farm is a real novelty, it's great to see the animals. My daughter had a great time mucking out. Beautiful countryside too.

Absolutely gorgeous, highly recommended.

Notes on accommodation: The Lodge comfortable sleeps two in a large king size double bedroom with floor to ceiling wardrobes and ample storage. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room for occasional use. Outside: The Lodge is in the middle of a working alpaca farm. You will be surrounded by our fields which are in Higher Level Stewardship. This means we don't use fertilisers and pesticides and our fields abound with wildlife. The alpacas graze fields right up to the Lodge although we ask that you enter the fields under supervision. We offer alpaca walking on the farm which can also be booked as a great walk in its own right or as an introduction to alpacas and our farm.

die Ferienwohnung ist sehr schön, man könnte den ganzen Tag die Tiere beobachten. es ist sehr sauber in der Wohnung, die Küchenausstattung ist hochwertig und umfangreich. der Flat-TV ist groß und erfüllte unsere Ansprüche. Der Internetempfang ist nicht besonders, aber das ist im Ländlichen nun mal so. Die geographische Lage der Ferienwohnung ist optimal um den gesamten südenglischen Raum schnell und einfach zu erreichen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind gut und schnell erreichbar. Die Vermieter sind sehr, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten bei der Ankunft einen Reifenschaden und unsere Vermieter haben alles für uns organisiert und uns auch in den ersten Tagen bis zur Reparatur unseres Fahrzeugs sehr liebevoll betreut. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder nach Uckfield. Es ist wie ein Zuhause.
