The fully equipped, open plan kitchen leads off the dining area, it has a Neff electric oven, induction hob, Bosch microwave, fridge with ice box and dishwasher. The utility cupboard has a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board. The bedroom features a luxurious king size bed with quality linen. This leads to a large en suite bathroom with walk in shower having two-shower head options, large double-ended bath and plenty of storage within the hand made vanity unit, a heated towel rail with Egyptian cotton towels and welcome toiletries. Woodpeckers enjoys its own landscaped courtyard garden with outdoor furniture and gas 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. Whilst we love dogs, we do not have pets to stay. Nor do we have smoking anywhere within the cottage. There is a detached two bedroom cottage close by, ideal for family groups and friends wanting independent accommodation. See Deerkeepers Cottage.
