Seaford Cottage provides a lovely light and airy yet homely accommodation arranged over two floors. From the property there are breath-taking views over the unspoilt Cuckmere Valley to the sea.

Features within the house include oak flooring in the spacious entrance hall and an attractive fireplace with wood burning stove and full-height glazed doors in the sitting room/dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an attractive range of cream units with a limestone floor, double oven, wooden work surfaces and full-height glazed windows and doors to one wall. A useful study and a utility/cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor is approached by a wide turned staircase and arranged over the first floor is the principal bedroom with an ensuite wet room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with an exposed flint wall and vaulted ceiling.


To the side of the property there is an area of parking, from which a wooden gate gives access to the garden which lies to three sides of the property and is mainly laid to lawn. To the far end of the front garden there is a kitchen garden with a raised bed.

Lying adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room is a wide paved seating area with superb far reaching views. There is a separate parcel of land lying a short distance to the rear of the house which provides an additional parking space and a garden store. From the garden there are unspoilt breath-taking panoramic views over the surrounding Downland countryside to the sea.


Seaford Cottage lies within the South Downs National Park, with some wonderful views over the unspoilt Cuckmere Valley towards the sea. The property lies a short distance from the Rathfinny Wine Estate and some of the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust. The surrounding countryside provides spectacular walking and riding opportunities as does the nearby Friston Forest and Seven Sisters Country Park.

The centre of the picturesque and historic Downland village of Alfriston is about 1.75 miles, and offers a good range of shops and facilities for everyday needs including a number of public houses and restaurants. The larger town of Seaford is about 2 miles with an excellent range of shops and facilities. There is a mainline train service to London from Berwick Station which is about 4 miles to the north.


From the centre of Alfriston, proceed out of the village in a southerly direction and having passed the main entrance to Deans Place Hotel on the left, continue for approximately 1.5 miles, and at the top of the hill having passed the entrance to High & Over car park on the left, Seaford Cottage is the second cottage on the right.
