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.
