Gorgeous wood cabin situated down a quiet residential dirt track road only 2 minute drive from the stunning pebbly/sandy shores of Winchelsea Beach. The house is designed in an open plan arrangement. Originally built in the 1930s it has been extensively renovated in a relaxed shabby chic style, filled antique and vintage furniture while the double height pitched ceiling in the the main living room gives the house a great sense of space and light. White washed reclaimed wood is used on walls and floors. The house sits in its own pretty garden with off street parking. Accommodation comprises one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, one double bunk bed room (sleeping 4) and another 4th bedroom/snug with a double sofa bed, bathroom/shower room and a second WC. Despite its reclaimed emphasis comfort has not been compromised and the house boasts a stainless steel Smeg cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, underfloor heating, wood burning stove and cotton sheets on all the beds.

About Atlanta and Dave Coote

We are a local family. We have 4 children and we just love the area with its copious beaches. The ancient town of Rye is one of our favourite spots with its cobbled streets, antique shops and many restaurants.

Atlanta and Dave Coote purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Atlanta and Dave Coote chose Icklesham

Winchelsea Beach is great place to go with the kids for an old fashioned bucket and spades holiday. We love the beach shack feel for this 1920's wooden house although we have not compromised on creature comforts or style. We actually run a photographic locations agency for our day jobs and this house has been photographed many times for magazine and catalogues like Boden and The White Company.

What makes this bungalow unique

This house has an old fashioned English charm harping back to childhood holidays by the sea. A local family of ducks are regular visitors and if you are lucky they will waddle up the garden and say hello! In fact we have even created them their own little entrance so that they can come and go as they please. We have extensively re-decorated the interior with vintage furnishings and with the emphasis on reclaimed materials. It is in a quiet location near the sea, and although on a residential road it feels secluded without being remote. It has beautiful views across a meadow at the back. THe whole property is fully fenced in and a picket fence separates the main garden from the parking area so you can feel secure letting little ones roam freely. Please note though that there is a river running along the back of the property and although fully fenced off we do advise that you make sure children climb on or over it.

relaxation heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were a mixed family bunch of 5 and all of us loved the cool design both inside and out of "Wynchelsea". We were also blessed with exceptional weather so could enjoy breakfast on the veranda. There was nothing lacking save a few light bulbs here and there, brilliantly appointed and decorated; I think one or two of us wished it had rained so we could have enjoyed the many board games in the games cupboard! We would thoroughly recommend this home as a superb escape from the hustle and bustle of today's life.

  • 4 of 5

Stay here for a long weekend with friends. The house is lovely and has everything you would need for your stay. It was very clean. Only downside was the single beds were a little hard for me but that's down to preference, other than that I couldn't fault it. Would recommend to friends and family

Winchelsea Beach is a lovely coastal village and the local pub called The Ship serves great food and is only a 5-10 minute walk away. The beautiful and ancient town of Rye with its copious restaurants and antique shops is only a 5 minute drive away. Other local attractions include Hastings, Camber Sands Beach, Bodiam Castle and of course the stunning coast line of East Sussex and Kent, all this only one and a half hours form London

Wynchelse house is a truly peaceful spot but not at all remote. Perfect for couples,families and even two families who want to share! Please not this house is near the beach not ON the beach.
