This pretty semi-detached weather boarded cottage is situated in a fabulous location right on the edge of Bewl Water.  It has stunning views from the ground floor raised terrace and also from its first floor roof terrace.  Bewl Cottage has been beautifully renovated and offers stylish and comfortable modern family living for 5 adults and one child, with a spacious sitting room and a kitchen/dining room with fabulous far reaching views across the water.  There are bi-folding doors from the dining area onto the terrace which is perfect for watching the wildlife and letting the relaxing effect of the water lap over you.  The cottage is generously proportioned with 3 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms and the master bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and roof terrace. There is access straight from the garden onto the reservoir for walking and there is a 13 mile cycle trail around Bewl through woodlands and meadows with a stop off at the nearby pub, The Bull, at Three Leg Cross for a welcome drink.  Nearby is the pretty town of Ticehurst offering local independent craft and vintage stores, cafes and a local foodie pub.  Royal Tunbridge Wells is a short drive away and offers more extensive dining and shopping opportunities. This area of Sussex borders closely with Kent and has an abundance of National Trusts properties such as Bodiam and Scotney Castles and the beautiful gardens at Sissinghurst and Pashley Manor. There are golf course at Dale Hill and Lamberhurst and Bedgebury Pinetum is a wonderful place to wander through the ancient pine trees and there is also a Go Ape site for the more adventurous.

Previous Customer,

What a great beautiful spacious house in a beautiful location. Welcoming with a homemade lemon cake, delicious after such a long journey; a cup of tea with honey and a nice piece of cake ... The area lends itself to nice trips to the coast, but we have also been a day by train to London, 45 minutes and we were in the heart of London! Supermarket 10 minutes drive, well equipped.

Lizzy C,

Wow! 5 stars is not enough for this lovely house. What a warm welcome we've had with that gorgeous yummy cake! Great views, great surroundings. Love to come back. Thank you!

Past Customer,

Sublime. View of the reservoir is so calming and peaceful.

Mrs chloe b,

The house was lovely and the views amazing. We were given several treats including a home-made delicious birthday cake. We were very happy during our stay. The ferries had just started to operate on a call-and-collect basis (end of March) which meant that we could walk some of the way around the lake and then get the boat back to near the cottage, and this service was great fun. The lake was more than full with water and that's why it looked so pretty.The footpaths were a bit muddy, but you cannot have it both ways. I feel we had chosen the perfect hide-away for our holiday.

Mrs Doris H,

A five star house - one of the best I've stayed in. Some lovely finishing touches. Wonderful views - we hope to return. Thank you so much.

Lisa R,

A beautiful house - comfortable and catering for your every need. Stunning views - we loved it!!

Kathy W,

Possibly the best holiday cottage experience we’ve had (and we consider ourselves veterans of the game!) We loved every moment of our time in the property and have recommended it to friend’s unhesitatingly. The view through the kitchen bifold doors is to die for!

Mrs Nathalie M,
