Cabin by the River, Rye
This cosy bolthole on the banks of the River Rother, complete with stylishly eclectic furnishings and thoughtful finishing touches, is the perfect base to explore the quaintly cobbled streets of Rye. Peruse the many antique shops around the Quay area and take a stroll down to the Harbour before stopping off for a glass of champagne at the historic Mermaid Inn, followed by dinner at The George. Or simply stay put and cuddle up together on the deck with a glass of wine, taking in the stunning views across Romney Marsh.
From £180 per night
The Shepherd’s Hut at Bucks Green
An idyllic retreat just made for two, nestled in seven acres of grounds belonging to a Grade II listed Georgian house. The Shepherd’s Hut’s vintage styling may feel gloriously retro, but having only been built two years ago it’s not at the expense of all the modern comforts you’ll need. The electric wood burner ensures you’ll enjoy a cosy romantic night in, and each morning you’ll be greeted with a continental breakfast hamper brimming with goodies (that’s breakfast in bed sorted then). Just keep an eye out for inquisitive neighbours-the friendly local alpacas, goats and miniature Shetland ponies may pop by to say hello.
From £75 per night
The Outbuilding Appledore
Design lovers, look no further than this stunning property. Sumptuously styled with a gloriously light and airy open plan living area, a pink cast iron bath in the master bedroom and an impressive book collection, this property makes the perfect retreat for any lovebirds. And while with the pretty local village of Appledore on the doorstep, and Rye and the famous dunes at Camber Sands just a short drive away there’s plenty to discover in the local area, we think once you’ve arrived you’ll find it pretty hard to leave.
From £160 per night
West Street Loft , Midhurst
It’s no surprise that this luxurious loft apartment in the heart of historic Midhurst has been kitted out by a designer (and owner of the rather lovely boutique below); from handmade soap and pure linen bedding on the super king-size bed to wonky exposed beams and artfully strewn sheepskins, all the modern touches complement the original features beautifully. Enjoy dinner for two at the fabulous Noah’s Ark pub in nearby Lurgashall before pulling on the walking boots the next morning to explore the stunning South Downs National Park, and well and truly blow away the cobwebs.
From £125 per night
The Barn at Bucks Green
This recently converted barn is perfect for those looking to really unwind together. Nestled in the Sussex countryside, it’s cosy and stylishly decorated throughout, with stunning views across acres of open pasture. The bedroom in particular provides real sanctuary, with a king-size bed tucked beneath the beamed pitched roof making it the perfect place to rest and recharge after a day spent wandering the many local footpaths and bridleways. And visiting foodies won’t be disappointed-The Chequers Inn at Rowhook and The Three Crowns at Wisborough Green are just two of the outstanding local pubs in the area that are well worth a visit.
From £95 per night
