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!

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.

Ein wunderschönes Urlaubsdomizil als super Ausgangspunkt für schöne Ausflüge in der Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage ist wunderschön eingerichtet mit allem was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub braucht.

Die sehr nette Vermieterin Liesha war immer mit guten Tips und Hilfsbereitschaft zur Stelle.

Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten der Gegend sind vom Cottage super zu erreichen, z.B. die Gärten und Landhäuser von Nymans, Standen, Sheffield, ebenso wie Brighton oder die Küste.

Mit unseren Hunden haben wir außerdem die traumhaften Spaziergänge im gegenüberliegenden Wald genossen.

prima cottage

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een leuke vakantie gehad. We hadden het geluk dat we 2 weken prachtig weer hadden en we veel weg waren. Want de A26 is toch wel een hele drukke weg. Dus rustig in de tuin zitten is er niet bij. In het huisje geen last van het verkeerslawaai. Het is comfortabel ingericht. Misschien wel een tip om in de slaapkamer met de losse bedden een kastje met planken of laden te plaatsen. Er is nu geen ruimte om ondergoed en truitjes etc. te leggen. De badkamer heeft een heerlijke regendouche en zachte handdoeken. De keuken inventaris is ook compleet. De verhuurster Liesha is heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Dit huisje is een goede uitvalbasis voor mooie trips. Veel tuinen en kastelen gezien, b.v. Leeds Castle, Penshurst en Borde Hill. Ook de plaatsen Brighton, Eastbourne en Alfriston zijn een aanrader. En niet te vergeten de Cliffs, The Seven Sisters en Beachy Head. Kortom te veel om op te noemen.
