About Castle Hill Cottage

Castle Hill Cottage is a beautiful combination of classic styling, contemporary conveniences, and spectacular views. It's a semi-rural location three miles from Crowborough and 1.5 miles from Rotherfield. Step out of the door into miles of the beautiful South Downs National Park with the knowledge that shops, supermarkets and other amenities for your self-catering holiday are only a few minutes away. Guests who stay at Castle Hill Cottage range in age and interests. The house sleeps 14 people in six bedrooms and is as welcoming for multi-generational family gatherings as it is for celebrating with friends. With facilities including a heated outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, this holiday home is the perfect spot to relax and spend time with the people you love.

It's possible to get from London Bridge station to Castle Hill in around two hours by train and taxi via Tunbridge Wells. The drive is also straightforward. It's great if you can escape for an extended stay, but even if you only have a few days, the peace and serenity of the scenery will make you feel like you've had a proper break from the norm. There are stables nearby in Ashdown if you fancy a trek on horseback, or you can use the bridleways to explore on a bicycle. An excellent treat is a bird's eye view of the countryside in a hot air balloon, with the Bluebell Railway in Uckfield offering a more sedate but equally lovely sightseeing experience. Gourmands will appreciate the scope and quality of the food and drink produced by local farmers and places like the Rathfinney Wine Estate and neighbouring Davenport Vineyards.

Castle Hill Cottage is close to Sheffield Park and Gardens, Bodiam Castle, Lewes Castle, Pashley Manor, Sissinghurst Castle, and Great Dixter House. Beachy Head and Brighton are under an hour away, and there is an entire stretch of East Sussex coastline to explore and enjoy. If you would rather stay closer to home, stretch out by the pool and enjoy the sunshine.

Location (East Sussex)

Accommodation Comprises:

Castle Hill Cottage is a modern property built in a traditional style that wraps around the pool terrace in an L-shape. Five bedrooms are in the main house with the sixth bedroom in a separate studio apartment.

  • On entering, guests can move right to go to the living space or left to the bedroom wing.
  • Vaulted ceilings and natural light feature prominently in the open-plan living area which has a living room, dining area, snug, and a kitchen. This space is designed for socialising and entertaining - doors open from the snug onto the covered terrace and barbecue area, allowing the easy flow from indoors to outside.
  • Large sofas, a contemporary log burner, and fantastic views make the living room a place to relax, chat and watch TV. Glass doors open onto the deck and frame fantastic views.
  • A timber dining table with 12 chairs sits centrally in the space to create a focal point for memorable moments.
  • Lots of bench space, including an island worktop, and a big modern range cooker, make it simple to cater for a dozen people. It's also a kitchen where external caterers can easily work. The proximity to the outdoor dining and barbecue area is perfect for summer meals.
  • Bedroom One has single bunk beds, a single bed, and a high ceiling.
  • Bedroom Two is a triple or family room. Choose from one king or two single beds on the ground floor. A ladder climbs to a mezzanine with a single bed.
  • Bedroom Three features a king-sized bed, built-in storage, and an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Bedroom Four also has a king-sized bed, ample storage and an ensuite shower room.
  • Bedroom Five has doors opening onto the pool terrace, a king-sized bed, built-in storage, and an ensuite shower room.
  • A separate family bathroom is shared between bedrooms One and Two.

Studio: A few metres from the main house, the studio has a king-sized bed and an ensuite shower room. There is an internal sauna and a hot tub on the patio just outside.

Outside: The cottage sits in extensive grounds with lawn and ample parking. Guests can use the heated outdoor pool between May and September, and the hot tub all year round. There are sun loungers by the pool, an outdoor dining table, barbecue and pizza oven.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen, bath towels and pool towels are included, as is fuel for the wood burners and the barbecue. Smoking and pets are not permitted. Please note that there is a cleaning fee of £350 per booking.
