This pretty semi-detached weather boarded cottage is situated in a fabulous location right on the edge of Bewl Water.  It has stunning views from the ground floor raised terrace and also from its first floor roof terrace.  Bewl Cottage has been beautifully renovated and offers stylish and comfortable modern family living with a spacious sitting room and a kitchen/dining room with fabulous far reaching views across the water.  There are bi-folding doors from the dining area onto the terrace which is perfect for watching the wildlife and letting the relaxing effect of the water lap over you.  The cottage is generously proportioned with 3 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms and the master bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and roof terrace. There is access straight from the garden onto the reservoir for walking and there is a 13 mile cycle trail around Bewl through woodlands and meadows with a stop off at the nearby pub, The Bull, at Three Leg Cross for a welcome drink.  Nearby is the pretty town of Ticehurst offering local independent craft and vintage stores, cafes and a local foodie pub.  Royal Tunbridge Wells is a short drive away and offers more extensive dining and shopping opportunities. This area of Sussex borders closely with Kent and has an abundance of National Trusts properties such as Bodiam and Scotney Castles and the beautiful gardens at Sissinghurst and Pashley Manor. There are golf course at Dale Hill and Lamberhurst and Bedgebury Pinetum is a wonderful place to wander through the ancient pine trees and there is also a Go Ape site for the more adventurous.

This property is amazing! Stayed here as a family ( 3 generations from 64 to 20 months) in October half term and was so homely, cosy and had everything you could possibly need! Looking out onto Bewl water, the location was beautiful and ideal for exploring the local area.Our host couldn’t have done more for us,books,baby equipment and a delicious homemade cake. Lots a lovely walks ( don’t forget your wellies!) and places around to visit for all ages- would recommend the Observatory at Hertmonceux for children..great fun! We didn’t want to come home!!

Previous Customer,

Wow! 5 stars is not enough for this lovely house. What a warm welcome we've had with that gorgeous yummy cake! Great views, great surroundings. Love to come back. Thank you!

Familie Cramer, H,

What a great beautiful spacious house in a beautiful location. Welcoming with a homemade lemon cake, delicious after such a long journey; a cup of tea with honey and a nice piece of cake ... The area lends itself to nice trips to the coast, but we have also been a day by train to London, 45 minutes and we were in the heart of London! Supermarket 10 minutes drive, well equipped.

Lizzy C,

We have had a wonderful time in a very nice cottage.
