The cottage is set in the grounds of the owners' home, this single storey cottage is very comfortable and perfect for a family of up to four. The main bedroom is equipped with a double bed, and the second bedroom has a single bed, which can be supplemented with an additional single bed to give the overall sleeping capacity of four. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over as well as basin and WC. The kitchen/dining room is ideal for family meals with table and chairs for four, and the comfortable sitting room has sofas and an armchair for relaxation. Outside there is a private area of garden and access to the paddock beyond.

Around East Grinstead

High Weald Cottage is just a mile from the centre of East Grinstead. From here you can catch a train on the Bluebell Railway down to Sheffield Park, or a mainline train (sadly not steam hauled) up to London. Close to East Grinstead there are various National Trust properties to visit. Wakehurst Place is open all year round, and is used by Kew Gardens as its country property and home of the Millennium Seed Bank. Standen is also nearby, and is famous for its links with members of the Arts and Crafts Movement such as Philip Webb and William Morris. A twenty minute drive brings you to Nymans Garden in Handcross, as well as High Beeches.

To the east lies the Ashdown Forest, well know to fans of Winnie the Pooh as The Hundred Acre Wood. The bridge where Pooh and Piglet played Pooh Sticks is on the edge of the Forest.

Relaxing, quiet and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in a lovely setting and it is easy to walk to town, pub and a shop. The owner was helpful and left us a lovely cake. We mainly enjoyed relaxing and doing jigsaws and games as the weather was not great but we didn't feel stuck in because there was plenty of space and it was decorated well. Our boys loved playing football in the lovely garden area and watching the birds fly in and out of the bird boxes. We all slept very well as the beds were comfortable and it was very dark and quiet at night time. East Grinstaed had everything we needed and is a pleasant town to walk about in with a good mixture of shops. A pleasant walk to Old Dunnings Mill was worthwhile. We ate very well there; it is family friendly and has a great beer garden. We also really enjoyed a visit to the nearby British Wildlife Centre.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would return.

Quiet, cozy, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I was visiting my daughter who works and lives nearby and was looking for a "home away from home." The cottage is well appointed and very convenient to East Grinstead with its shops and train station, quite close to major roadways. It is in a quiet area for a good night's sleep, which was important as my daughter needs to wake early for work

Perfect, alles is aanwezig voor een perfecte vakantie. Ook een prachtige tuin aanwezig.

  • 4 of 5

Alles is aanwezig en heel gezellig ingericht. Het enigste wat ontbreekt is een vaatwasser. Daarentegen is er wel een wasmachine aanwezig. Het huis is heerlijk koel. In de slaapkamer twee heerlijke bedden met twee aparte dekbedden(hebben wij thuis ook zo) tegen elkaar aan geplaatst. Heerlijk geslapen. Heel rustig, af en toe opstijgende vliegtuigen van Gatwick. Ligt aan de wind. Pamela de eigenaresse was heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Wij hadden hier een superweek. Wel elke dag boven de 30 graden.
