Located close to Dixter, this 300 year old cottage is sympathetically decorated throughout, full to the brim with old world charm and makes a romantic getaway for two in the south east region of England.
Offering late-night walkies beneath the starry skies and early morning hikes in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this pretty Sussex cottage offers the ideal getaway for both man and dog. This chocolate-box cottage, found on a tree-lined country road, is a romantic bolthole for two and welcomes one canine companion. Saunter around the local area, hand in hand and with a dog at your heels, stopping off for a local pint – and a refreshing bowl of water for your pup.
This 300-year-old cottage retains plenty of original charm and character through exposed beams, low door frames and original pine floorboards. Relax in the cosy lounge with your dog curled up at your feet, exhausted after a long day of fetching and digging. On warmer evenings, enjoy an evening tipple or final glass of wine in the delightul cottage garden, letting Fido bask in the last of the day’s sun. When it’s time to retire, you can climb the stairs and collapse into bed, leaving your man’s best friend comfortably dreaming downstairs.
While away a morning in the village of Northiam, picking up breakfast at the local bakery (0.5 miles) or throwing a tennis ball on the green. You’ll find six local pubs within a 5-mile radius, all of which welcome your four-legged friends and make excellent stop-off points on a long dog walk. The surrounding High Weald AONB offers plenty of longer dog walking opportunities, including a fascinating 6-mile medieval trail around nearby Burwash (12.5 miles). Take in Sussex’s remarkable history whilst your pup hunts for ancient bones, stopping to explore the dog-friendly National Trust estate of Bateman’s (13.5 miles), the historic home of Rudyard Kipling.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
