Apple Cottage is perfect for a romantic holiday for two. Nestled on a farm stocked with sheep and pigs, the cottage was once a cow barn. It’s been beautifully renovated with oak beams and exposed brickwork providing plenty of character.
The bedroom is on a mezzanine level under the sloping roof eaves, and the kitchen and dining space offers all the fittings needed for cosy, couple’s meals.
If you fancy eating out, walk to Sedlescombe village where there’s a traditional country pub dating from the 14th century that comes with rave reviews.

Talk a stroll through history by walking the 1066 way – retracing the footsteps of William the Conqueror from Pevensey to Battle you pass through woodlands, windmills and oast houses.
The route is 31 miles long in total, so you might not cover it all in one go. In Battle there’s the spectacular Abbey and the famous battlefield to visit. And the museum brings all the local history to life. There’s a castle at Pevensey where the tower, keep and chapel remain to be discovered.
Take a tour of a vineyard, there’s an organic one at Robertsbridge. They produce 30,000 bottles a year here and offer tours and special events throughout the year. Head to the Sussex coast for a choice of seaside towns. Hastings is the nearest, and the old town has an eclectic mix of antique shops, gift stores and ice-cream parlours.
A new art gallery attracts lots of visitors, and the shingle beach has a long promenade to walk along. If you are after a stretch of sand, head east to Camber where there’s a long beach that is ideal for sunbathing. Windsurfing and kite surfing take place here if you want to try these sports.
For a romantic break away in a pretty location, Apple Cottage is the perfect holiday home. Snuggle up in the cosy bedroom under the beamed eaves or sit outside in the sunny courtyard area – there are a number of places here that are just made for relaxation.
