Herstmonceux, Hailsham, East Sussex, England
A newly converted single storey barn, Moorhen Cottage is a comfortable refuge in the heart of our organic dairy farm. There is a large garden and terrace with a stunning view over the Pevensey levels to the South Downs, a wildlife pond, and a 'ha-ha' (with a 5 foot drop!) at the bottom of the garden. One well behaved dog is welcome, (doggie rules apply!) and you can get tasty meals 200 metres away at the Lamb Inn in the hamlet of Wartling, before sauntering back to the cosy cottage. Bedlinen and towels are provided and underfloor heating and solar hot water will ensure you are comfortable in all weathers.
Local attractions include Herstmonceux and Pevensey Castles, we are 5 miles from the coast, near the historic town of Battle and within easy reach of the South Downs National park, Rye Harbour and other wildlife sites.

Ideally located for most attractions in Sussex . A peaceful retreat after a day exploring this beautiful area. We had a warm welcome from Marian, even though we arrived later than expected. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, plenty of room for a couple. We really appreciated the collection of books on the local area, which helped us...

A wonderful hideaway in a fabulous location with incredible views. The cottage is really comfortable and well equipped. The setting is gorgeous and provided just the right environment for a peaceful and restful break. Don't forget to visit the dairy to get some delicious organic milk & yoghurt! I would definitely stay again!

Management response:

Glad you had a good rest, we look forward to welcoming you here again sometime!

About the neighbourhood
On the edge of the Pevensey Levels, with views to the sea and Eastbourne, We are close to historic Herstmonceux Castle with its moat and beautiful grounds, and 100 metres from the Lamb Inn at Wartling, which serves delicious food and is full of local character. The cottage is warm and cosy and very private, the area is renowned for its wildlife and there are lovely walks across the fields and in nearby woodland, yet we are not too far from many interesting places to visit.
