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. 

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 ruined house and world renowned gardens.

From the cottage you can drive 30 minutes to the historic Lanes and classic seafront of Brighton or to the hazy meadows and extensive biking trails of the South Downs.

Notes for guests

Heating: Oil central heating included.

Garden: A large enclosed informal garden.

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.

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.

Children should be supervised as there is a large lake approximately 400 metres from the house.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC 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 is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

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 sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
