Inkpen Cottage is a charming, detached Grade II listed red brick building originally thought to have been a farmworker’s cottage. You’ll find it tucked away on Strawberry Hill Farm, where the owners are working towards developing a self-sufficient lifestyle. There’s plenty to see on the farm itself, including a vegetable garden, fruit trees, a poly tunnel and geese and chickens, not to mention the odd pig or two!
Recently renovated, the cottage has been refurbished to a high standard. The attractive, locally-made clay tile flooring has underfloor heating throughout, while the open-plan sitting room and kitchen benefits from a wood burning stove with French doors leading out to the private garden. The garden has wonderful views of the East Sussex countryside. In one corner, you’ll find a copse with a hammock and hot tub, perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring.
The cottage is situated in the High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with ancient woodlands, iron workings and meadows teeming with wildlife. With many beautiful villages and towns nearby to explore including Battle, Rye, Burwash and Tenterden and the south coast is a short drive from the cottage.
