The conversion of this cowshed, simply perfect for families of all ages, has been designed with great flair and attention to detail. There are exposed beams in the spacious open plan sitting room and under floor heating throughout to chase the chills away.  Wheelchair accessibility has been given great thought - access from the car to the house being completely flat and one bedroom having an en-suite wet room. The Cowshed is located on the owners' farm within walking distance of the pub at Bodle Street Green and is in the most wonderfully quiet location with a pond right outside your front door, fenced for safety - home to the many resident ducks! The property is ideally located for entertaining the children at the Herstmonceux Science Centre or Drusillas Park and not far from Bedgebury Pinetum with it's "Go Ape" tree top walk and for the grown ups, Batemans, Pashley Manor Gardens and Battle Abbey are all close by.  The seaside is only seven miles away at Pevensey Bay and you can enjoy the many trails and rural walks right from your doorstep.

We really enjoyed the very rural and peaceful location,, very quiet lanes, little passing traffic, very pretty farm and countryside. The location was perfect for visiting the coast and exploring rural Sussex too. The cottage completely lived up to our hopes in terms of being mobility friendly - worked very well for my elderly father who has both visual impairment and poor mobility. We could all relax! Would love to return!Ms J Nichols - 5th August 2016
We highly recommend this cottage for its comfort & cleanliness friendliness of the owners & easy access to surrounding attractions plus all transactions with Kent & Sussex cottages made the whole holiday a great success.Mr D Fox - 17th June 2016
Peaceful and well equipped property thoughtfully suitable for those of us with mobility problems but just as comfortable for those without.Mrs S King - 6th June 2016
A lovely, peaceful place which we want to come back to. We found Cowshed spotlessly clean, and very thoughtfully arranged for disabled visitors (I've been in a wheelchair so I know). We especially enjoyed the stunning views and the excellent food at the very friendly White Horse Inn. Thank you too for the lovely welcome - a fully laid tea tray with milk in the fridge and biscuits , and pretty flowers. Tony & Hilary, Cambridge - 5th March 2016
A lovely quiet setting, the accommodation has been furnished to a very high standard and has everything there that you would wish for.Ms L Davies - 21st September 2015
We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable cottage surrounded by many interesting places to visit. We would definitely recommend the Cowshed Cottage to friends, particularly those walks in these nice surroundings. Gotte Family, Belgium - 5th August 2015
A wonderful holiday in this thoughtfully equipped cottage. Definitely one of the best - if not THE BEST - we have stayed in. Thank you ( love the ducks!). Sheila, James & Linda. Maidstone - 17th June 2015
Lovely cottage and very wheelchair friendly. Sitting by the duck pond, under the stars, in the silence of the country-side will be an enduring memory. Sarah & Brian - 11th June 2015
Cowshed Cottage is a very nice place. We have had a great holiday and we enjoyed every day here. South England is for us the most beautiful country. Gunther Family, Stuttgart, Germany - 17th March 2015
What a lovely holiday cottage, it rates one of the best. We've has a great week exploring.Graham Derbyshire - 8th February 2015
