Little Friston South Downs Cottages
South Downs cottages with majestic views over the surrounding rolling hills and forest, Little Friston Lodge provides an idyllic base for an escape from hectic lives.
The lodge is an annexe to a large country house and provides luxury holiday accommodation for up to four people, with private access, off road parking and storage for bikes.
Located on the edge of the South Downs Way in Friston, East Sussex, close to the village of East Dean, Eastbourne and Brighton; the perfect position from which to enjoy Beachy Head, the Seven Sisters and south coast of England.
A private door leads to an inner hallway with boot rack and downstairs toilet. There is a large, open-plan living space with patio doors on to a private terrace with table and chairs enjoying wonderful countryside views.
The kitchen area is fully equipped for self-catering, with all the utensils you’ll need, plus washing machine, double oven, fridge freezer and microwave.
The comfortable lounge boasts a handsome wood-burning stove (logs provided), a TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and a Sonos WiFi speaker. The dining table is strategically placed by the French doors, offering you the perfect opportunity to drink in the views while you eat.
The living room leads to another hallway with a staircase rising to the first floor where there are are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and an ensuite bathroom with glorious views over the hills. The second bedroom is usually a twin, but can be set up as a kingsize if two couples are sharing. There is also a spacious family shower room.
The property has been delightfully decorated and furnished throughout and provides an ideal base for couples and families. Children are welcome and a travel cot is available on request.
There are two private off-street parking spaces for the lodge (plus further parking by the main house if required) and if you’re on a cycling trip, there is a store room for bikes. WiFi is provided, plus towels and linen, and you’ll even find some welcome goodies from the owners to get you started on arrival.
South Downs Cottages with direct access to pathways over the South Downs
Outside you can enjoy the full, expansive gardens that belong to the main house as well as the patio immediately outside your cottage. Patio areas include outdoor dining furniture, seats for relaxation and a BBQ if you fancy cooking al fresco, and there is an attractive pond providing a haven for wildlife (parents need to supervise children at all times).
From the gardens, you can directly access pathways to the South Downs and it’s an easy stroll to explore nearby historic gems such as Friston church (dating from 1688) or to pop into East Dean with its cricket green and regular open-air market.
East Dean and Friston are two picturesque and tranquil villages which sit between Eastbourne and Seaford. It is a fantastic location for walkers, cyclists and holidaymakers seeking a relaxed location set in beautiful countryside. The nearest beach is at Birling Gap, just one mile away, while Eastbourne town centre is just a couple of miles drive.
There is a great pub on the green which people visit from miles around – The Tiger Inn serves up tasty lunches and evening meals and you can enjoy your meal overlooking the green when the sun is shining. Or if you feel like something more exotic, there’s also the fabulous Thai Terre restaurant on the green.
