(Reference number: 79184) On the outskirts of pretty little Orlestone, this sixteenth-century Grade II-listed cottage is picture perfect – so much so that it was featured in the Wealden Times Lifestyle Magazine. Beyond the manicured gardens are comfy rooms packed with original features, ideal for hunkering down. Pick your spot on a plump sofa with your feet up on the pouffe in front of the wood-burning fire, catch forty winks in the dreamy beds under Egyptian cotton sheets and patchwork quilts or tuck into your hosts’ homemade cake around the antique dining table. Spend glorious summer days on the lawns sprawled out with a picnic, enveloped in the sweet scent of the rose bushes while industrious bumblebees toil away in the foxgloves. On more adventurous days, don your walking boots and explore. Set off past the pond, through shady spots and open fields, eventually arriving at the Hamstreet Woods National Nature Reserve. After your yomp, a slap-up feast is well deserved; gastro pubs and tearooms await in nearby villages, just a short drive away. Home truths: *The annexe to your home is also a rental and might sometimes be let during your stay *Your hosts provide homemade cake and local wine for stays of seven days or longer *The property is set over three floors and has two staircases – one of which is steep and winding so won’t be suitable for small children or those with limited mobility *Due to the home’s remote location, it’s best to have a car for ease of getting around
