About Welbeck Cottage

Nestled on the vast Sheffield Park estate in the glorious Sussex countryside, this gardener’s cottage puts you at the heart of the historic parkland.

Fomerly occupied by some of the estate’s gardeners, you’ll love this cottage’s location in the estate, close to the old stables, shop and tea-room. With out-of-hours access to the wider estate it’s great for walkers, cyclists, families and couples looking to kick back with acres of space for outdoor adventures.

Inside the cottage, you’ll find a sympathetic and comfortable renovation with a neutral colour palette, beautiful wooden floors in the sitting and dining room and feature walls of artwork, echoing the history of the parkland and water features of the landscape garden. In terms of layout, downstairs the small utility area gives way to the kitchen with the dining room on the left, and there’s also the sitting room and the bathroom. Upstairs you’ll find the double master bedroom and the second twin, with another toilet and sink. Outside you can stretch your legs in the lawned garden, or sit down for an alfresco lunch or dinner when the sun is shining.

As you approach this semi-detached cottage, you’ll find you’re only 100m from the National Trust shop and tea-room, which means you don’t have far to go for delicious cake! And with the whole of Sheffield Park estate as your playground, you’ll find so much to explore, from the winding paths, grand trees, lakes, cascades and bridges to quieter spots perfect for picnics. Off the beaten track nature thrives in the 300 acres of parkland and woods that surround the garden - and if you’re strolling the river Ouse, look out for a flash of blue darting past you, as it’s home to pretty kingfishers. 

Beyond the estate, there’s even more Sussex countryside to take in when you stay. The Ouse Valley walkway stretches for 42 miles, brilliant for walkers and nature lovers. You could also head to Ashdown forest, or onto the bluebell train line, or go llama walking at a local farm; there’s plenty to keep you entertained when you stay. When you’re looking for a meal or shops, then you’ll find Fletching with its cafe and two pubs only 2.5 miles away, and both Haywards Heath and Uckfield are less than 10 miles from the cottage. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards caring for special landscapes and places, like Sheffield Park.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
