The Old Workshop is a stylish two bedroom holiday cottage in the heart of the East Sussex countryside sleeping 4 people in 2 double bedrooms. The area is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and commands fabulous views across open farmland of the Sussex Weald. There are many attractions and activities available in the vicinity. For walkers there are numerous paths through woods to explore and also the Cuckoo Trail which follows the route of the disused railway line between Heathfield and Polegate. Or you can simply relax in the peaceful surroundings and admire the view.
