Once the shooting lodge for the Ashburnham Estate. Shooting Box Tower is now a fabulous holiday home.  The views from the top of the tower are fantastic, looking out over fields and woodland (fabulous for bluebells and anemones in the spring) towards Hastings. Ideal for country walks and visiting the many historic, interesting places that East Sussex has to offer. Battle Abbey and 1066 country are on the doorstep. A visit to the seaside is not too far away either.

Excellent property and great hosts! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Thanks to James and Roy for a lovely stay at a stunning property! Rohan Saha - 22nd September 2017
A perfect holiday at a perfect place.Thank you to the owners.Mrs Dohler from Germany - 29th April 2014
We have been staying in holiday cottages for 18 years and this is the best yet. The furnishing is very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone with lots of thoughtful extras. James and Roy made us very welcome and the home made bread was delicious. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do. I recommend The White Hart in Netherfield - excellent food and service. If you want a relaxing break in a beautiful house then The Shooting Box Tower is the place for you.Cox - 2nd August 2008
We have had a delightful week at The Shooting Box. What a superb cottage and so well equipped, especially with extra touches, eg picnic boxes. Thanks for a great week.Green - 27th July 2008
We have had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. We felt very well looked after and hope to return one day soon. - 9th July 2008
