Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Friston - The Cottage at Friston Down

3-bed cottage with an unrivalled setting, extensive gardens and access to a pool

The Cottage at Friston Down is a delightful three-bedroom annexe to a larger house - set within beautifully maintained, expansive gardens and with shared use of a swimming pool.

The annexe has its own private entrance and is set over two floors. Upstairs, in the eaves of the cottage, is a huge master bedroom with views over the South Downs, a walk in wardrobe and TV. This room can easily accommodate a cot or a camp bed for an extra child (both can be provided). Across the top of the stairway is a large family bathroom, complete with bath, separate walk in shower, toilet and bidet.

Downstairs are two further bedrooms - one double, one twin - plus another family bathroom, again with separate shower and bath.

There is a spacious, comfortable lounge with views over the gardens and French doors leading to your own private terraced area - perfect for summer BBQs or an evening drink. With a large screen TV with Sky TV, DVD player, stereo, free WiFi and even an iPod docking station, you're perfectly equipped for a relaxing break.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Carl & Sarah Stanger

Exclusively Eastbourne was set up by husband and wife, Carl & Sarah Stanger, after they recognised the need for high quality self catering accommodation in Eastbourne.

Both Carl & Sarah have travelled extensively, lived abroad and enjoyed (and occasionally endured) a wide spectrum of holiday and business accommodation and this experience has shaped their understanding of what makes a great holiday home.

Their ethos is simple – to listen to and understand what guests require and provide only the best holiday homes.

If there is something that would help to make your stay extra special, just ask. Maybe you’re organising the holiday as a birthday treat and you need help organising a cake or decorations? Perhaps it is a romantic getaway and you want champagne chilling and flowers on arrival?

Carl & Sarah Stanger purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Carl & Sarah Stanger chose Suffolk

Imagine views over the South Downs to the sea, race horses galloping, birds singing and the chance to take a dip in a private pool.

Situated literally on the South Downs Way with the National Park, the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head beckoning.

Unique is a horribly over-used term, but is fully justified with this beautiful cottage, which offers a wonderful base for families and friends to be close to nature, but within easy reach of pubs and restaurants

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location,. Or should it be pool, pool, pool??

Guestbook comments from the manager

Comfortable, cosy, welcoming, everything you can want for a holiday rental, stunning scenery, beautiful walks, beautiful drives along costal and country roads. Will not hesitate to book next year.

Birling Gap

The idyllic villages of Friston and East Dean are the gateway to The South Downs National Park, adjacent to Beachy Head, Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters.

It is a fantastic location for walkers, cyclists and holidaymakers seeking a relaxed location set in beautiful countryside. The nearest beach is at Birling Gap, just one mile away, while Eastbourne town centre is just a couple of miles drive.

Steeped in history, with strong Saxon and Norman influences, the flint church and cricket green, with its regular open-air market, offer quintessentially English treats. There is a great pub on the green which people visit from miles around – The Tiger Inn serves up tasty lunches and evening meals and you can enjoy your meal overlooking the green when the sun is shining. Or if you feel like something more exotic, there’s also the fabulous Thai Terre restaurant on the green.

East Dean has a small selection of village shops, including a post office, hairdressers, grocery store, delicatessen and an award-winning butcher, as well as a doctor’s surgery. There is a weekly farmer’s market every Wednesday. For more details on this lovely village, visit the East Dean and Friston community website.
