Embrace the quirky, cosy interiors in this romantic getaway. Open the doors to the terrace, and let the sounds of nature waft through the lodge. Fire up the BBQ, enjoy a good meal and then spend the evening in the hot tub gazing up at the stars.
“Perfect... a lovely place to escape everyday life. Quiet, suitably secluded and just a short walk away from local amenities if you need it. The place was spotless and we felt immediately comfortable. The hot tub was immaculate and a superb place to relax. Mike & Barbara made the whole weekend perfect, they have the balance of being welcoming, communicating and available if required but provided us with privacy so as soon as we arrived we could enjoy our break. Will definitely return and recommend to family”
Blackthorn is a luxurious retreat for two. Attached to the owner's home, and situated on the edge of Icklesham village, the property lies halfway between the ancient towns of Rye and Hastings. There is a distant view of the sea, and the garden is surrounded by beautiful AONB countryside. The cottage has a private, south facing verandah, and guests are welcome to use the heated, indoor swimming pool and outdoor hot tub throughout their stay but exclusively between the hours of 8.00am and 8.00pm.
“We found Blackthorn to be the perfect holiday haven for couple-friendly relaxation and sighsteeing along the Sussex coast. indeed i'd return happily to write away, or bring family and friends too. It's a beautifully-kept cottage with scenic balcony, jacuzzi and pool access, set in a tranquil landscaped garden surrounded by nature and the great outdoors. Listening to the timeless birdsong in the morning and taking in the stars from the jacuzzi were magical moments, as was simply relaxing with a roaring fire with good wine and scrabble. Local places well worth exploring are charming Winchelsea, picturesque Rye (Lamb house, the Mermaid Inn for Sunday lunch and Webbes Fish bar for an evening supper) and the more vibrant Hastings. We'd love to come back soon and leave where we left off, with more walks and possibly a local wine tasting/tour (we spotted many tempting local wineries whilst out and about!). Thank you Peter and family for having us to stay in your beautiful holiday home. You were the perfect hosts!”
Sit back, relax and enjoy the ambiance of our beautiful holiday cabin and fishing lake. Set in the heart of the glorious East Sussex country side, situated in semi ancient woodland, yet only a minute or two drive from the pretty village of East Hoathly. Our rustic cabin is fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Whether you're escaping for a relaxing stay, a romantic weekend, taking a ramble through the country side and Weald Ways or a spot of fishing.
“The cabin on the lake is so beautiful I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little bit of rest and relaxing. The cabin itself is beautiful, so comfortable and had everything we needed and more. We were lucky enough to get some sunshine so could enjoy the decking it really is beautiful. Juliette is a fantastic host, even let us have a late check out. Thanks you so much, we would definitely love to come back again.”
