  The Detail...

Amidst the woodlands of Beckley in East Sussex, Boxwood Retreat is an architect-designed haven with an eco-friendly touch. Accommodating up to six guests, this house is five miles from the charming seaside town of Rye and only 40 minutes drive from Ashfords international train station.

Surrounded by oak, chestnut and pine trees. Boxwood Retreat is hidden away in a secluded spot, perfect for a little peace and quiet. Theres an open-plan living space on the upper level which leads out to two spacious terraces for dining and socialising in the fresh air.

Natural light floods into the house, which features oak wood flooring throughout. Boxwood Retreat is well insulated, but has both underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove to warm things up as needed in the colder months.

You have a kitchen leading through to the dining area and living room, while on the lower level you will find three contemporary double bedrooms. One of these has its own large en suite wet room, and theres a second bathroom on this level too. A low-energy Air Source heat pump keeps the hot water flowing.

The location of Boxwood Retreat, close to the Kent and East Sussex border, means much of the best of these two counties is within easy travelling distance. With Camber Sands just 20 minutes drive away, a trip to the beach could be in order. The golden sands stretch for miles, and be sure to look out for the sand dunes, a rarity around these parts. A little further east, evocative Dungeness has very much its own vibe either desolate or inspiring, depending on your point of view but its well worth a visit for the experience.

For a pretty harbour, galleries, cafs and restaurants, Rye is the place to be. Its easy to spend the day pottering around the old towns cobbled streets, looking at churches and lingering over coffee. Once a week theres a market and, once a year, an arts festival. Many of the towns restaurants make the most of the catch of Ryes fishermen, and plenty of old-school pubs can be explored if youre seeking out local ales.

Bodiam and Sissinghurst Castles are picturesque properties for heritage lovers, and with Tenterden around ten miles away, youre not far from the steamy Kent & East Sussex Railway or Chapel Down Vineyard for winery tours and tastings.

For a relaxing getaway in south east England, Boxwood Retreat surely ticks all the boxes.
