Peaceful Garden Flat With Stunning Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Aug-2016
Cottage in Dallington, Nr. Battle, Sussex, England - Tranquil Village Location

Away from traffic, Laburnum Cottage enjoys views over the Sussex countryside as far as the South Downs. Dallington is set around an ancient church; it is quiet and peaceful, situated between the market town of Heathfield and Battle, the centre of 1066 country. The area is not only designated AONB but is steeped in local interest and history. Dallington is surrounded by great walking country with a dense network of footpaths, woods, quiet country lanes, and country pubs. Nearby there are villages to explore such as Brightling, Burwash and Mayfield (the centre of the Tudor iron industry). Further afield are the towns of Lewes, scene of the Barons revolt in 1264, and the Cinque port towns of Hastings, Rye and Tenterden. There are many historic castles to visit: Bodiam(NT), the epitome of moated castles; Herstmonceux, the only brick-built castle of the fourteenth century; Hever, the home of Anne Boleyn; Scotney(NT), a fairytale castle set in a beautiful garden; and Pevensey, where Romans and Normans landed. There are famous houses too: Charleston with Bloomsbury group associations; Batemans(NT), Kipling’s house at Burwash – you can walk there across the fields; Penshurst, home of Sir Philip Sidney with its wonderful gardens. And if you love to visit gardens, Sissinghurst(NT), Great Dixter and Pashley Manor are all within reach. Along the coastline between Rye and Brighton are Winchelsea, Hastings old town, Eastbourne, and the spectacular Seven Sisters white cliffs that can be reached by walking from Alfriston along the banks of Cuckmere river.

Events In 2016 include the Charleston Festival 20-30 May, and the Glyndebourne Opera Festival 21 May - 28 August.

A cozy retreat in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to East Sussex where we visited some of the many historical houses and gardens in the area. Garden Flat is in an ideal location with very good facilities, and our hosts were very friendly and informative but not intrusive. We would definitely return if we are ever in that part of England again.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

The most relaxing week ever with wonderful views over the downs and a very interesting village.

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as it showed in the picture. Beautiful, peaceful garden and extremely comfortable cottage. Excellent base for many local attractions and the coast, with vineyards, gardens and country houses in easy reach. Great tv reception!Our hosts were very welcoming and we did not want for anything. Definitely a returning venue.

Beautiful and Peaceful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this cottage was a real treat - thank you! It was a delight every day to return home to the tranquillity of Laburnum Cottage after sightseeing or walking in the hills. There are many National Trust places to visit within easy reach, and nearby Battle made for such an interesting day out. We were also very happy to just sit and admire the stunning views from the cottage and its gorgeous garden. The cottage had everything that we could have needed and was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would highly recommend and look forward to returning very soon.

Quite superlative - we had a splendid holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by Carolyn and Robin who continued to ensure our comfort without being at all intrusive. We could enjoy the wonderful garden, especially the lawn outside the flat, overlooking peaceful countryside. The furnishings were very comfortable and all the necessary equipment was in place. The slightly tenuous email connection was blessing for us - but some might find it a problem, We would unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone who asked. Dallington is small with few facilities, but the Swan pub is within a 15 minute stroll with excellent beers and good pub food. The National Trust card got plenty of use, and we visited other local attractions. But the main thing was the ability to stay at the flat all day if we wanted to, to sit in the garden and read - or potter down some local footpaths.
