About Woodlands Cottage

A 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.

Notes for guests

Access: The drive to the cottage is along a half mile of single track. There are no lights along the track and it is best that you arrive during daylight.

The accessibility guide is for guidance only. For up to date photos, please see the images on the webpage.

Utilities: The washing machine and tumble dryer is a combined washer dryer.

Please note: The cottage is in an isolated location within Nymans Wood which is open to the public and popular for family days out, walking, cycling etc.

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.

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.
