Early 20th Century, Boulton & Paul Timber Cottage

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms. Price From £560-£900 Per Week


Enjoy the peace and total seclusion offered by this charming 5-star holiday cottage which is set amidst thirty acres of lawns, streams, woodland and lakes in the High Weald of Sussex and on the borders of the South Downs National Park.

The completely renovated 19th Century, two-bedroom cottage retains many of its original features including open fires and timber-clad walls while offering the highest standards of comfort you’d expect from a top-of-the-range destination.


Accommodation comprises:


  • The comfortable sitting room is a mixture of the new and the antique with old prints and original water colours on the wall, a flat screen television, DVD player and an original open fireplace.
  • The spacious kitchen/diner comes complete with a range of wall and floor units containing all the equipment you are likely to need during your stay. At the other end of the room, a wood-burning stove will put you in a relaxing mood as you sit down for supper at the oak table and chairs. On fine days you may want to open the patio doors and eat outside while watching the rabbits playing havoc with the vegetation.
  • The large bathroom has a separate bath and generous sized shower cubicle with endless hot water available on demand. A full range of towels is, of course, supplied for each guest.
  • The main bedroom is furnished with a Kingsize bed, deep interior-sprung mattress, pure Egyptian cotton bed-linen and an over-sized goose-down duvet. Naturally there are bedside tables and lights, a wardrobe and a dressing table for your use. Hairdryers come as standard in both bedrooms.
  • The second bedroom has two single beds, each supplied with deep Slumberland interior sprung mattresses and covered with pure Egyptian cotton bed-linen and oversized pure goose-down duvets. A bedside table and lamp controlled from switches at the door and the bedside ensure your total convenience while storage for your clothes is provided by a wardrobe and a generous supply of wood hangers.
  • The utility room is equipped with a Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer, an ironing board and iron, as well as a Dyson. A range of cleaning equipment and liquids are stored in one of the fitted cupboards.




Blackdown Cottage sits amidst a 30-acre estate of lawns, woods, streams and lakes overlooking the High Weald of Sussex in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. During the day the air is filled with the sound of birdsong and the rustle of the undergrowth as wild deer forage for food. In the silent blackness of the night you will often hear the hooting of an owl or the grunt of the badger as you stare up at the velvet vault of a star-studded sky.

Come to us on a summer’s evening when the soft breeze carries the scent of cut grass. Come to us in early May and walk through woods filled with bluebells. Or join us at Christmas when the snow is thick on the ground and the wood crackles in the fireplace. Choose the autumn, if you prefer, before the geese leave us and the heron gives up his hungry vigil, when the leaves change to red and gold and yellow and lie thick on the woodland floor. Or, in the halcyon days of summer, stay by the patio, and sip a glass of wine while you watch the sun sink behind the distant trees, at the end of another perfect day.

The estate is beautiful in all its seasons. The spring-fed lakes, the wooded trails, the rushing streams and the views over the High Weald change month by month and hour by hour in a captivating range of colours and smells that make you feel good to be alive.

And there is plenty of room for your car in the gravel car park right beside the house, surrounded by formal flowerbeds full of mature shrubs.

Hundreds of yards from the nearest road – or, for that matter, any houses – this is the perfect spot to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Sussex countryside.

And once here, there are any number of things to do. Rudyard Kipling’s old home, Batemans, is less than five minutes from here, and open to the public. Thirty-five minutes away is the world-famous Pantiles of Royal Tunbridge Wells where you can eat, drink and shop to your heart’s content. Thirty minutes in the opposite direction is the opera house at Glyndebourne while a sharp turn to the left will take you the site of the Battle of Hastings and the abbey built by William the Conquerer. The list goes on and on.

This is fabulous walking country. The South Downs National Park and The High Weald offer stunning views across some of the most beautiful parts of England and they are right on our doorstep. Several of the great gardens of England are close at hand, including Great Dixter, Pashley Manor and Penshurst Place, all of them less than twenty minutes’ drive from here. Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn is about forty-five minutes away while Leeds Castle, often described as the most beautiful in England is less than an hour down the Maidstone road.
