The Old Vicarage Cottage
6 bedrooms, sleeps 12

This larger, period holiday property is in an ideal location for exploring Sussex with beaches and historic Cinque ports.

Built in 1820, this elegant, classic Grade ll listed, adjoining Georgian family home retains many original features. It is an ideal holiday destination for extended families and groups of friends, just 5 miles from the Cinque port town of Rye. The stylish accommodation is spread over three floors. There is an open plan drawing room and dining room, with a welcoming fireplace, a games room with pool table for some after dinner entertainment or chilly day recreation, complete with wood-burning stove! The light and airy conservatory is also a congenial place in which to relax and catch up with the Sunday papers. When the weather is fine, take full advantage of the mature gardens spread out to the side and front of The Old Vicarage and enjoy a glass of wine, or a picnic in the summerhouse.

The attractive terrace also loans itself to alfresco dining. From the upper floors there are views across the beautiful countryside with sheep filled fields and apple orchards, with Rye in the distance and even glimpses of the sea! There is a CAMRA award-winning pub which serves good food, a local shop and a public park with playground within walking distance, and footpaths close by. Visit the cobbled, medieval town of Rye, 5 miles, and explore the art galleries, tea rooms and antique shops.

There is also a leisure centre. Winchelsea, described by Kipling as a ‘port of stranded pride’ with distant sea glimpses, offers hidden wine cellars beneath the wide streets to discover, once embroiled in the town’s smuggling past!. Winchelsea beach and Rye Nature Reserve are great for bird spotting, and Camber offers miles of golden sand dunes. Vineyards and National Trust properties and gardens abound. Rye station connects with Ashford and London St Pancras station, and also mainland Europe. There are local buses to Hastings and Rye. Beach 31/2 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub 440 yards and restaurant 1/2 mile
