Description

Approached down a secluded country lane through beautiful woodland with wild anemones and bluebells - this imposing tower, adjoining the owners' farmhouse - originally the Shooting Lodge for the Ashburnham Estate, is in the most wonderful location. The views from the top of the tower are incredible - not only over the fields and woodlands but to Hastings and beyond.  Walk to nearby Eatenden Wood and observe some unique birds in the hedgerows. For medieval history just a short drive to nearby Battle will take you right into the heart of 1066 country. Experience a real taste of country life in the sympathetically renovated splendour of this unique property. Shop: 1.5 miles  Pub: 1.5 miles Coast: 9 miles

Reviews

A perfect holiday at a perfect place. Thank you to the owners. Mrs Dohler from Germany - 29th April 2014
We have been staying in holiday cottages for 18 years and this is the best yet. The furnishing is very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone with lots of thoughtful extras. James and Roy made us very welcome and the home made bread was delicious. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do. I recommend The White Hart in Netherfield - excellent food and service. If you want a relaxing break in a beautiful house then The Shooting Box Tower is the place for you.Cox - 2nd August 2008
We have had a delightful week at The Shooting Box. What a superb cottage and so well equipped, especially with extra touches, eg picnic boxes. Thanks for a great week.Green - 27th July 2008
We have had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. We felt very well looked after and hope to return one day soon. - 9th July 2008
