Boutique Cottages in Sussex


Flaunting culture, country and coast, Sussex is as perfect for secret escapes as holidays in the heart of the action. Only 1 hour from London yet home to 150 kilometres of coastline and mile upon mile of uninterrupted countryside, it affords the perfect opportunity to revel in relaxation and exploration. 

Get to know the chalky face of the South Downs, the medieval woodlands of the Sussex Wealds and the abundant towns and villages, from the vibrant bubble of Brighton to the inexorably charming Bexhill-on-Sea. Say hello to the Long Man of Wilmington, travel to India with a visit to the Royal Pavilion in Brighton and follow in the footsteps of William the Conqueror at Hastings Castle. 

Whether you are looking for a dog-friendly bolthole, family-friendly cottage or are whisking your beloved away for the most romantic of rendez-vous, our luxury home stays in Sussex afford the most luscious experience however you want to write the pages of your holiday. Fill your days with as much or as little as you please and return to your Boutique Retreat knowing there’s nowhere else in the world you’d rather be.

Calling to foodies from far and wide, Sussex’ rich and fertile soil produces some of the tastiest, organic produce in the country. Famous for its wealth of homegrown goodness and traditional favourites, including the “seven good things of Sussex”, it is a great place to delight and, maybe even challenge, your taste buds. Look out for the county’s Pulborough eel, Selsey cockle, Chichester lobster, Rye herring, Arundel mullet, Amberley trout and Bourne wheatear, as well as its popular puddings and pies!

With more cafés, restaurants, bistros and pubs you could wish for, there are plenty of opportunities to sample Sussex’s culinary delights. Also boasting a huge number of local farm shops and markets, budding chefs will be in their element. Wander along to the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival in May (the largest festival of its kind in South England), Joy Festival in June, Wealden Food & Wine Festival in July and the Worthing Food & Drink Festival in September, to get your fill of demos and dishes before heading back home to channel your inner culinary creative.
