Description

Merryfield Cottage is a beautiful end of terrace cottage full of character and charm, set right in the heart of picturesque Robertsbridge.  The property boasts original beams throughout and a beautiful brick fireplace housing a superb wood burning stove. There is a lovely garden with a summer house and a dog is also welcome, making it perfect for enjoying the many rural walks right from your doorstep. The village of Robertsbridge has a rich history and good daily shopping where you will find a wide variety of shops including an artisan bakery and cafe, antiquarian bookshop, village stores, chemist, a bank and a post office.  There is also an Indian restaurant and two great pubs to choose from!  Touring around the scenic Sussex and Kent countryside is easy from here and a short drive will take you to historic Battle where you can explore the Abbey and the 1066 battlefields. There are great road links to the coast at Hastings and Rye as well as the long sandy beach at Camber. There are direct trains to London from the village station. Robertsbridge is a member of the Sussex Bonfire Society which is responsible for a series of bonfire festivals throughout November, making this a great all year round property.

What a wonderful holiday we've had, the cottage really is perfect. Thank you so much for all the small things you've added, like the cuddly toy digs that my daughter loved. For other visitors, we can really recommend the Saleshurst Halt - an easy walk away from the cottage. Day trips to Battle (Cut & Grill) and Hastings (Rustico Restaurants) Everyone we met was so friendly. It really has been an amazing week. Thank you again.Francis Family - London - 2nd June 2017
