Winchelsea, East Sussex
Large groups can enjoy the whole wing of this historic, listed gothic mansion in Winchelsea, comprises of two self catering apartments with a wood fired hot tub.
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 3 nights low season & 7 nights high season
Sleeping up to eight adults (and one child up to 16 years old) in total comfort, Eagles Nest and Herons Wood provide a perfect setting for a larger group to holiday together whilst still having privacy. Ideal for a family and grandparents, two family groups, or a larger group of friends, this property is spread over two self catering apartments in a grand gothic mansion.
Both apartments have been beautifully restored, with a plethora of original features, including stone mullion windows, ornate plaster coving, original fireplaces and oak floors. Guests can relax and unwind whilst enjoying stunning views over the estate parkland, the sea and the 12th century Franciscan abbey ruins.
The welcoming living rooms, where you will find restored fireplaces, woodburners and baskets of logs, invite you to curl up with a book on the comfortable sofas. The well appointed kitchen/dining spaces overlook the dramatic Abbey ruins, and have all you need to cook up a feast. Guests can enjoy dinners inside, or when the weather's nice you can dine al fresco in the walled courtyard outside.
After a day at the local Winchelsea beach or famous Camber Sands, sink into beds of cashmere and wool mattresses with 800 thread count linens, or enjoy a movie on the smart TVs. On chilly days individually controlled underfloor heating keeps you toasty, and on warm summer days the terrace doors of Eagles Nest can be left open, meaning the terrace becomes part of the living space, and leads down to the courtyard.
Guests will love watching the stars from the aromatic wood fired hot tubs in the gardens, with a glass of Charles Palmer sparkling wine supplied in the welcome basket. A deep sense of peace pervades the ancient site, whilst the accommodation provides a sense of quiet luxury throughout your stay.
After an al fresco breakfast in the communal courtyard, or out on the terrace, wander five minutes up the road to explore Winchelsea’s cellar tours, 13th century church with stunning stained glass windows, farm shop, pub and the nearby Charles Palmer’s vineyard. Guests may also wish to explore the cobbled historic Cinque port of Rye, with its restaurants, boutiques and picturesque harbour.
Prices vary through the seasons.
Two well behaved dogs welcome at an additional cost of £50 per dog.
