South Downs holiday cottages – set in gorgeous grounds with heated swimming pool

Holiday cottages with pools rarely have such glorious settings.  The Cottage at Friston Down has stunning views over the beautiful South Downs to the English Channel in the distance, plus a heated outdoor swimming pool (open in the warmer months).

Located on the South Downs Way in Friston, East Sussex, close to the village of East Dean, it provides sensational accommodation for walkers, cyclists, families and friends.  This is the perfect position from which to enjoy Beachy Head, the Seven Sisters and the south coast of England.

The beach is within easy access, there are quaint villages nearby, and a wealth of cultural and historical attractions to visit.  And if you’re looking for a bigger social scene, Eastbourne is only a few minutes drive and even Brighton is just a bus ride or drive away with its cosmopolitan cafes, shops and nightlife.

Adjoining an impressive country house, and completely self contained with its own private entrance, this three-bedroom self catering holiday cottage is a gem of a find, full of character and furnished to a high standard throughout.




Excellent cottage, great location, stunning views A very comfortable cottage set in a large garden with outstanding views across the South Downs. An ideal location for walking/cycling holidays exploring the downs plus just a 5 minute drive to the coast. A fully-equipped kitchen, plenty of space for all the family including our two little ones, many thanks to the owner Phil for the stair gate. A perfect week.
