White Cottage sits quietly in the beautiful coastal Sussex small town of Winchelsea, with its historic high street, picturesque church and far reaching views across the marshland to the distant sea. This cottage is a real hidden delight, full of character and charm and has been carefully furnished and equipped with great attention to detail, making it a very comfortable holiday home.  It offers a stylish sitting room and separate dining room with a log burning stove and three comfortable bedrooms.  There is a secure garden with covered storage for your bicycles and with the use of a handy picnic basket, you are all set for your first adventure. Winchelsea Beach is only a short trip down the hill and has a submerged petrified forest which is exposed at low tide - perfect for beach combing and fossil hunting. There is so much to do and see in this lovely part of Sussex, from the wonderful diverse coastline to the rural hamlets and historic towns with their cobbled streets -  it really is a wonderful place to spend your holiday whatever the season.

Cottage well equipped with lovely small enclosed garden. Winchelsea felt very unique. Pristine and quiet village with great history, with lovely walks around. A hidden historic gem! Interesting places to visit within 20 miles radius. Great little museum, church and pleasant pub with nicest beer garden I've been in. One small shop selling good quality basics. Would love to return some time to White Cottage. Thanks

Ms Jocelyn D,

The property was comfortable and had every thing one would need. An absolute joy to stay there.

Mrs Joan M,

Fabulous little cottage in a beautiful village

Mr Stephen B,

We fell in love at first sight of White Cottage in Winchelsea - that really says it all! The town, which I had seen briefly over thirty years ago, is lovely, too, and the inhabitants are very friendly.

Andrea R,

The cottage is very clean, well equipped and ideally located. The new pier at Hastings, as well as the Old Town and the Jerwood Gallery are well worth visiting.
