There is a large terraced area which leads to a tiered garden and there are views directly onto the parish church of St Laurence and the village. There is a useful bike storage shed provided.

Telscombe and beyond

Telscombe is a unique village in East Sussex. Nestled in a crook of the Downs about two miles from the coast is one of the prettiest villages in Sussex. For walkers Shannon Cottage is ideally located for joining the South Downs Way at Southease just one mile away. You can continue from here on a 9 mile walk over the Blackcap to Lewes where you can experience the superb views, particularly to the south and east. Cyclists will also enjoy the easy access to the Egret's Way and the Ouse Valley Cycle Network. The nearby village of Piddinghoe offers direct access to the River Ouse which has rowing and sailing activities available at the marina.

Newhaven and the coast is a mere 10 minutes drive away where you can find much to explore including the Newhaven Fort offering breathtaking panoramic views of the South Downs and Sussex coast. Within half an hour drive and you can be in the bustling and cosmopolitan coastal city of Brighton offering a wide variety of attractions including the Royal Pavilion, the Summer palace of the Prince Regent, and Brighton Pier along with 'The Lanes' which offer a shopper's paradise of independent shops and boutiques.

Shannon Cottage is located just 6 miles south of the impressive county town of Lewes with its Norman Castle and medieval streets. Surrounded by chalk cliffs, Lewes is also home to the handsome townhouse of Anne of Cleves, fourth wife of Henry VIII. There are also a host of contemporary art galleries, bookshops, boutiques and antique centres to explore. The River Ouse flows through the town dividing it into two areas between Cliffe High Street presented in beautiful period style with its gateway, a paved bridge, crossing the river and the main High Street that heads up the hill. Visiting Lewes on the first Saturday of the month is recommended when the thriving Farmers’ Market comes to town with lots of delicious fare on offer!

Spot on!

  • 5 of 5

Shannon Cottage was everything and more. Perfectly clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the vase of daffodils and the pint of fresh milk in the fridge. Perfectly situated for walking.

Also the bed was the most comfortable one and we are due for a new one so will be buying the same.
