Rose Cottage is an attractive detached house of period origin with later additions and presents mellow brick, white-washed and timber clad elevations. The house provides light and well-arranged accommodation over two floors which is now in need of updating. The drawing room is a lovely large room and has a fireplace, wooden floor and glazed doors leading to the garden. In addition there is a well-proportioned dining room/sitting room which also has a fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden fronted units, adjacent to which is the double aspect breakfast room. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Arranged over the first floor is a spacious principal suite which has glorious far reaching views. In addition there are three further bedrooms and a second bathroom. Other features within the house include panelled doors, some sash windows and good ceiling heights.

This property has 1.2 acres of land.


The property is approached from the no-through lane via its own sweeping drive which leads up to the house with an area of parking to one side. From the parking area a short flight of steps leads up to a wide sandstone paved seating area which lies immediately to the front of the house and has a lovely outlook over the garden and far reaching views beyond. To one side of the house there is a mature fig tree and climbing the front elevation of the house there is an established wisteria.

The remainder of the garden is laid principally to lawn and from the far end of the garden there is a lovely outlook towards All Saints church spire. Attached to the rear of the house there is a lean-to store. Bordering the parking area and entrance drive is the property's paddock (not fully fenced). Situated to one side of the entrance drive is a brick and tile open fronted outbuilding. In all about 1.2 acres.


Rose Cottage is situated in an elevated and peaceful position on the edge of the pretty village of Old Heathfield. The village has a church, primary school and renowned public house. The old market town of Heathfield is some 2 miles, and provides a good range of shops and amenities including a Waitrose supermarket.

The regional centres in the area, Tunbridge Wells and Lewes, are 14 and 18 miles respectively. Stonegate Station is about 6.75 miles, and provides a mainline train service to London (Charing Cross/Cannon Street about 67 minutes).

Continue for about a 0.25 mile, before turning right signposted Battle (B2096). Continue along this road for about 0.3 mile, before turning right signposted The Star Inn.
