The Robin's Nest is a thoroughly charming Grade II listed cottage conveniently located in the village of Sedlescombe which is only a short distance from the fascinating town of Hastings.  This lovely property has pretty cottage gardens to both the front and the rear, perfect for outside dining.  Although the property was built in about 1450 and retains many traditional timbers it is bright and well furnished making it an excellent choice as a base to explore the beautiful surrounding Sussex countryside and coastline.  You can walk to the village gastro pub, which welcomes dogs, shop in the general stores and then go further afield and enjoy the walking and sights from Fairlight Country Park or stroll along the seven miles of golden sands at Camber.  Hastings Old Town is vibrant and full of retro stocked shops and the ancient town of Rye isn't too far away either.  There are two vineyards locally which are worth a visit and a golf course. Historic Battle is also a great place to visit with its ruined Abbey and battlefields.
