Set on an idyllic village green and once part of a smugglers’ network, this exquisite 17th century house will steal the heart of you and your furry friends. Gateway to The South Downs National Park, East Dean is steeped in Saxon and Norman history and has a superb butchers, dog-friendly pub and farmers’ market every Wednesday. Eastbourne (2 miles) has four-paw beaches at Holywell (4 miles) and Royal Parade (5.5 miles), but with Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters cliffs just over a mile to the south, you’re already spoilt for local sand, sea and stone. If you’re keen to swap squidgy balls for hard little white ones, the superb Royal Eastbourne Golf Club is just 3.5 miles to the east. Inside you’ll find history, elegance and tranquillity in abundance.

The spacious drawing room incorporates charming stained glass and two huge ship’s timbers, offering a quiet space for parts or all of the family to gather and bond. The lounge, with its stone fireplace and hearth and old beams, provides a different space for getaways or get-togethers. Upstairs, the four bedrooms each have their own unique ambience and garden views – the elegant king-size bedroom is dual aspect. The sun room (with access to the second bathroom) is a joyous and restful space, surrounded by mature, terraced gardens.

Further abroad, find fabulous fur-friendly beaches at Seaford Head (5 miles), Normans Bay and West Quay Newhaven (both 10 miles). Explore the narrow Lanes, sea front, pubs, boutiques, restaurants and Pavilion of Brighton (18 miles), and the historic seaside charm of Bexhill (18 miles) and Hastings (23 miles). Discover dramatic castles at Pevensey, Herstmonceux and Lewes (9/15/16 miles). Imbibe history, Nature, culture, gastronomy and adventure in this timeless corner of England.

Delightful dog friendly cottage with a secure garden in the heart of the village. The home is within easy walking distance of the Birling Gap and surrounding beauty spots. Local dog friendly pub is across the village green and serves delicious food and local ale.

Five star cottage and excellent location in a beautiful village. Locals are lovely, Tiger Inn offers finest pub food also being dog friendly. The Thai restaurant offers takeaway which is mouth watering. The Hikers Rest Cafe is amazing for a morning breakfast or a cuppa and cake. They offer so much more to. This cottage is spotlessly clean, spaciousRead more, comfortable and we slept really well. Not much to fault, if anything. I will return to explore more of the downs, right on the doorstep.

we arrived in East Dean on a hot sunny afternoon and found ourselves in the Tiger Inn car park. The pub was heaving but we managed to secure an outside table and some cold Peronis. Across the green we recognised Glebe Cottage form the photos which is in a lovely location with dog walks from the door. The house was larger than expected and, althoughRead more the furniture and decor are looking dated, the garden is idyllic and the house well equipped. The Deli next door was great. Enjoyable week overall. Hide

Perfectly located for a very chilled weekend with deli, Thai, pub and coffee shop all steps away and easy access to some wonderful walks to work those treats off. Very dog friendly. Kitchen and shower room modern, fresh and clean. Rest of property a little old fashioned, but clean and fine for a weekend visit (beds comfortable!)

What a wonderful find. This fantastic cottage is set right in the heart of the village. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but never have they been as well equipped with quality goods as Glebe cottage is. It truly is a home from home On suits would have been nice but would it stop us returning absolutely not.
