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.

James and Roy lent us their toaster when the one in the cottage developed a fault and bought a replacement for the cottage the same day. Excellent customer service from the owners!Mr Simon Whiting - 8th March 2019
an excellent property and very kind and generous hosts. We will come again. Mr ALASTAIR KINLOCH - 14th December 2018
Exceptional property, exceptional hosts.Mr Toby Ejsmond-Frey - 3rd December 2018
Absolutely beautiful property. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We had a perfect stay.Deborah Roe - 26th June 2018
We had a fantastic time at the Shooting Box Tower, everything about the cottage (well house really) exceeded our expectations. The lounge in itself was wonderful and we all miss those super comfortable sofas. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked each evening a fantastic meal, everything from roast dinner to curry. The garden was lovely, plenty of seating and I may have just ordered a swing seat like at the property for my own garden. The location is wonderful, secluded on a quiet road but close to Battle, in fact we never ventured further than about 30 minutes drive to all the attractions we saw, such as Sissinghurst, Battle Abbey, Bodiam Castle, Bexhill, Hastings, Rye. I had no idea that you can have such a wonderful holiday down south, so we hope to return as there is simply so much to explore. Mrs Melanie Martin - 5th June 2018
It was beautiful and the ideal place for a large group to relax comfortably. Miss Jessica Ralph - 24th November 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
