Welcome to Poppets Cottage
Poppets is a gold star, award winning cottage, featured in The Guardian's 'Cool Holiday Cottages in East Sussex' guide. Part of a former convent (home to our family) it sleeps two, it's light and cosy with an open fire and snug sofa, a small, country style kitchen with Belfast sink, a sunny bedroom and modern bathroom. Stunning views and great walks into the East Sussex High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The property is on the outskirts of the village of Buxted close to Uckfield. It can be reached by direct train from London in just over an hour. Our house and cottage are approached by our private driveway. It’s ideal for National Trust Members, walkers, riders and cyclists, (secure bike storage on site) visitors to Ashdown Forest, Glyndebourne, Lewes, Brighton, Rye and Tunbridge Wells. There are many castles, historic houses, National Trust properties and beautiful gardens to visit and English country pubs, some famous for their gastronomy !
The cottage is compact, well equipped and extremely bright with views onto the garden, decorated in a country vintage style. All the heating, electricity, linen, towels and logs are included in the price.
