THE OLD STABLE

A perfect bolt-hole for two within the grounds of Thornden Farm, and within easy reach of Eastbourne, and Royal Tunbridge Wells.. Sympathetically converted, this heavily beamed cottage at Thornden Farm dates back to the 16th century and occupies a truly peaceful and secluded setting amidst 1066 countryside. Within the grounds of Thornden Farm are goats, free range chickens and a small flock of sheep, and from here, there are far-reaching views to Beachy Head, the South Downs and the sea. The cottage boasts an individual seating area in landscaped gardens.There is a wealth of diverse attractions and activities within the surrounding area. Visit historic Battle, where one may pause for a cream tea and visit the ancient abbey or the fascinating world of Yesteryear, a fun museum of everyday items from days gone by. Hastings is a short drive away offering freshly caught fish from the beaches in the old town, the smugglers cave and many more tourist attractions. Rye, with its cobbled streets, variety of shops and inns such as the famous Mermaid Inn which is known in history as the meeting place for the notorious Hawkhurst smuggling gang, makes a truly wonderful day out. Just a short trip from Ashburnham, one can find expanses of white sand dunes and beaches at Camber, with many other beaches and cliff top walks to be discovered along the entire coast. The Victorian seaside resort of Eastbourne (15 miles), with an indoor swimming-pool, adventure park and new Sovereign Harbour complex, still retains a sense of its opulent past. Royal Tunbridge Wells and the famous Pantiles are 18 miles away. Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling, is 5 miles away at Burwash. There are also numerous National Trust and English Heritage sites in the locality.Activities offered locally include trout fishing (fly only) in Ashburnham, Bewl and Darwell reservoirs. Horse riding, four golf courses plus fantastic cycling and walking. There are many festivals and shows throughout the year, including orchestral nights at Battle Abbey and the castles of Bodium and Hertsmonceaux. Guy Fawkes celebrations in East Sussex are a local tradition, with each area boasting its own Bonfire Society. Within 1½ miles there are two pubs, the ‘Ash Tree Inn’ at Brownbread Street and ‘The Swan Inn’ at Dallington each serve real ales and fine food. Shop 4 miles.. Open-plan living/dining room, with wood-burning stove in inglenook fireplace, and farmhouse-style kitchen area. Double bedroom with sloping ceiling. Shower room with toilet.
