Imagine a cottage just for two - a stone built period cottage which has been lovingly restored.  The Retreat is located in the peaceful village of Brede, surrounded by beautiful Sussex countryside and is conveniently situated for visiting the coast.  This charming semi-detached cottage has many traditional features and has been tastefully furnished and styled to a high standard, offering a modern twist.  There is an added bonus of a wood burning stove for winter nights and on the first floor landing you can enjoy views over the large rear garden from the window seat, making this the perfect spot for a holiday at any time of the year. You can enjoy a short stroll to the village pub and enjoy free WiFi and delicious food at The Red Lion or venture further afield and explore Rye with its famous cobbled streets or catch a movie at the Kino cinema. The Sussex coastline is particularly stunning with seven miles of golden sand at Camber and fantastic dunes to explore.  Historic Battle is a great place to visit with its ruined Abbey and battlefields as well as Royal Tunbridge Wells, Ashford, Dover and beyond.
