About the property

Family English Holiday House

Poundgate Park Cottage is a beautiful two bedroom holiday home for four people. Set in an Edwardian walled garden enjoying a private patio and decking area and large area of lawn with an orchard and mature trees.

The rooms have glorious garden views or far reaching views of rolling hills and the South Downs.

The property adjoins the owners' property and backs onto the owners' 5 acre gardens including a woodland and duck pond (unfenced).

Just across the road is Ashdown Forest with excellent opportunities for walking, picnics and horse riding. There is a character pub/restaurant opposite with open fires in winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a week at Poundgate Park and it was terrific. The cottage is attached to the owners' home but you would never know it. You have your own entrance to the garden and your own front door - you can't see their home and you feel like you are walking into a secret garden.

The cottage is nicely done and was a perfect size for our family of three plus a small dog. It had absolutely everything we needed (tho' the iron was a bit temperamental...but then so am I when ironing!), and it was just lovely to sit out in the evenings and watch our daughter playing on the slide.

The owners are lovely and made us feel welcome but did not intrude on our privacy...even their elderly dog made friends with ours!

The only thing that some people might see as a downside was the fact that the entrance to the garden is on a busy road but we genuinely did not hear it once we were in the garden and certainly not in the cottage. The upside was easy access and a great pub across the road.

We would thoroughly recommend Poundgate Park and indeed will be going back next year!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay came with a warm welcome from Leisha. The cottage was very comfortable with

excellent access to the large private walled garden. Everything provided that was needed. Will definitely book again.

Wonderfull quiet and fully equiped holiday house with an enclosed garden.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay in the heart of the garden of Engeland. This holiday house was a perfect place to visit all nice spots we had in mind.

After opening the gate along a busy road you enter a different world. We enjoyed the view on the garden and everything was there to have a pleasant stay!

High standard accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is beautifully designed, warm, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a particularly impressive! Our only issue is that the picture of the garden is of the owners garden. Please note this is not for the residents to use. However we did have a lovely walled orchard to play in. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Tucked away and charming.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well presented and charming cottage.It has a delightful aspect,and is close to a reasonable pub and the Forest.We had a few hours spent in the pub,food is ok but not the best pub food I have tasted.We walked in the forest with two small children ,and that was a highlight ! The only downside is the proximity to a very busy road.This does not affect the noise level, but means with small children one should be vigilant. The owner is kind and concerned ,to make ones stay as pleasant as possible,and I would recommend it to friends for a short stay.

What a beautiful cottage this is. It is extremely clean and has everything you need for a wonderful stay. We took our 14 year old daughter and her friend plus our dog and had a fantastic time. The location is excellent for walking in Ashdown Forest, which is just across the A26 - our dog loved the expanse to explore! I would definitely recommend the pub over the road - excellent food choice.

The cottage has a beautiful garden and is secluded away so there is no noise.

We would definitely recommend this cottage - the owner was extremely helpful and polite. thanks for a wonderful time!

Wonderful Setting

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage set behind a private entrance. The cottage has a large private garden behind a brick wall. Although on the A26 I was not bothered by any traffic noise, I am sure the brick wall and trees help reduce any noise. The layout of the cottage is very nice and large fluffy bath towels are provided. The washer & dryer are within the rental itself and a nice change from having to walk to a utility room as I have experienced at other rentals. My only issue was with the beds. Mine seemed to slat to one side and the person in the double room found the bed to be lumpy. I think new mattresses are called for. Otherwise a great location to tour East Sussex and Kent, and I would certainly stay again so can highly recommended Poundgate Park Cottage. I gave 4 stars rather than 5 due to the beds.
