Poppets Cottage

Poppets is a delightful one bedroom holiday cottage that sleeps two guests offering single level accommodation that is ideal for couples looking for a romantic break (and singles). Located in the grounds of the owners home in the pretty village of Buxted, East Sussex, Poppets affords lovely countryside views. Ideal for walkers, guests have direct access from the front door to enjoy the lovely walks within the High Weald AONB.

The cottage is beautifully furnished and is approached by a private driveway lined with rhododendron (a lovely sight in the spring when in flower) which leads to both the cottage and owners house.

Situated on the southern fringe of the Ashdown Forest, Poppets is ideal for walkers, cyclists and those who enjoy horse riding. It is an ideal base for exploring the counties of Sussex and Kent with easy access to Glyndebourne, cosmopolitan Brighton with plenty of attractions, Lewes with its majestic castle, the historic fishing town of Rye and Royal Tunbridge Wells with its lovely shops and restaurants. Poppets is just over an hour from London by train and within forty minutes you can be at the coast enjoying a day by the sea! There are also many historic houses and gardens open to the public in the area, along with castles and county pubs with something for all pallets from pub meals to fine dining.
