You’ll find handmade British soft furnishings with decorations in Farrow and Ball colours, granite worktops to the well-fitted hand made kitchen. There are two modern bathrooms with vanity cupboards. The comfy sitting area has a Sony LED HD Smart TV with freeview, WiFi and a wood-burning stove. There is underfloor heating throughout and heated towel rails. The accommodation is designed to an exceptionally high standard in a rural, tranquil setting. Fresh flowers and a welcome basket of basic supplies greet you upon arrival together with a complimentary bottle of wine. The entrance door leads from a porch into the fully equipped, open plan kitchen with a Neff electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The open plan kitchen leads to the sitting/dining room featuring the pretty wood burning stove, that is made up with logs ready to light, ensuring you are cosy throughout your stay. The master bedroom (ground floor) features a luxurious king size bed with Egyptian cotton linen, a snuggly designer throw, comfy pillows and duvet. This leads to a modern en suite bathroom with a large shower bath, vanity cupboard and w.c. The second bedroom (first floor) has twin beds and is open plan to its private staircase and lobby with an en suite wet room (ground floor). The spacious walk in shower has two showerhead options. This is a fun space with privacy from the ground floor living area. Automatic black out blinds add to the finishing touches of this unique bedroom space. Both bathrooms have heated towel rails, Egyptian cotton towels and welcome toiletries. Deerkeepers’ enjoys its own landscaped garden with terraces, outdoor furniture and BBQ (during the warmer weather). There are country walks from the door onto a bridleway and the nearby Ashdown Forest (2,396 hectares). This cottage is in the gardens of an old coach house, which once formed part of a larger estate; therefore it has the benefit of a private tennis court and small home gym. Guests are welcome to use these at their own risk. For further information please contact the owner direct. A car is recommended. Whilst we love dogs, we do not have pets to stay. Nor do we have smoking anywhere within the cottage. The cottage is unsuitable for young children due to the steps, stairs and wood burner. Older children are welcome. For further information please contact the owner direct. There is a detached one bedroom cottage close by, ideal for family groups and friends wanting independent accommodation. See Woodpeckers Cottage. More
