About Woodlands CottageA former game keeper’s house, this classically-styled cottage is surrounded by woodland.
Close in distance, yet far from the hustle and bustle of London’s streets, this two-bedroom cottage is the perfect ‘get away from it all’ place to stay.
Woodlands Cottage was built in 1868, for the estate’s game keeper at the time and now hosts a comfortable stay with two bedrooms, countryside inspired interiors and a cosy stove in the lounge. There’s even room for two dogs.
During the summer holidays, why not explore your creative side by getting involved in the family fun art activites and garden games at Nymans.
You’ll be nestled in the centre of Nymans woods, excellent for bird and wildlife watching. There are woodland paths to follow revealing a tranquil lake, cascades, sandstone outcrops and giant redwood trees. Beyond the woods at the top of the hill is Nymans, with its house, ruins and world renowned gardens.
Nymans is situated in the Weald and close to the Ashdown Forest. From the cottage you can drive 30 minutes to the beach and historic Lanes of Brighton or to the extensive biking and walking trails of the South Downs.

So we can continue to preserve and care for this special woodland there will be people, including volunteer groups, working within the woods and may be using equipment such as chainsaws and tractors. On occasion this could be within a close proximity to the cottage.
The nearest properties are some distance away and it gets very dark at night, so consequently is not recommended for those of a nervous disposition.
There is a large lake 400m from the cottage and, for their safety, we advise that children are supervised.
