Our location in the heart of East Sussex is the ideal base to explore the South East. An area of contrasting countryside – to the South and West, landscapes vary from river valleys and chalk cliffs to rolling green hills sheltering picturesque villages and panoramic views to the sea. An unrivalled coastline to include such beauty spots as the Seven Sisters and the dramatic white cliffs of Beachy Head. To the North and East, the Weald with picture book towns and villages, undulating wooded terrain, with some of the finest oak and specimen trees, leading down to the Romney Marsh and Pevensey Levels, now part owned by English Nature and managed by the Sussex Wildlife Trust.
Some quotes from Barry Reynolds of the Hampstead & Highgate Gazette in his Travel article on Beechcroft :
…’Not far south of London in an unspoilt part of England where you will find a cottage you will never want to leave’
…’a very good line of silence too, as well as some more breathable air’
…’the fact that the county is without a motorway certainly adds to the effect’
…’here is that unique countryside all together – hills, downs and ragged coast line – that the guide books are full of yet seem increasingly difficult to find’
…’Cowbeech is a sleepy little place that seems to have had a 21st century by-pass…luckily’
