“EXCELLENT MODERN COTTAGE WITH GREAT WALKS”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Situated in a quiet no through lane off the main road winding through the village of Jevington. Although it can be a bit of a rat run at peak times, Jevington is a lovely little village with pretty cottages, a parish church, a very popular local pub and excellent walks up onto the South Downs in either direction.

The Old Coach House is straightforward and convenient, with parking off the road, immediately outside the property. It is situated just behind the famous "Hungry Monk" cottages (reputed to be the inventors of Banoffee Pie when formerly a restaurant).

Entrance into open plan lounge/diner/kitchen with wood flooring, electric coal effect fire and central heating. Lighting on dimmer switches and side table lamps. Large screen TV with full range of Freeview channels.

Kitchen was fully equipped with latest dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, full oven and hob. Small shower room off kitchen lobby, which whilst small, provided a loo, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and shower.

The first twin bedroom was situated off the lounge area and provided a large 3 drawer sideboard, twin beds, bedside tables and lamps. Door into large 'airing cupboard' containing central heating boiler and clothes airer. No other clothes hanging facilities.

Stairs climb out of the lounge/dining area to the first floor where the smaller second bedroom (Double) was situated in open gallery area with a few pegs for hanging clothes. An excellent adjacent bathroom offered a loo. wash-hand basin and large bath with only hand held shower.

There was a side door out of the dining/kitchen area onto a paved patio/garden area with two wooden bench seats and gate out to parking area. This area is surrounded by a low brick wall about 4' high. Narrow planted borders on 2 sides with wall of stable block providing the other boundary. The yard also provided a reel hose which we used to wash the dog down with ~ very useful for dog owners!!

The cottage was warm and convenient in so many ways, that we would thoroughly recommend this property for those looking to access the East Sussex coast and countryside. Very close to Eastbourne and within easy access to Brighton and surrounding places of interest. Especially a wide range of walks onto the South Downs and the nearby Friston Woods for great dog walking.

We highly recommend The Eight Bells pub in Jevington (just a short walk via the churchyard) for great pub food and a wide range of beers and ciders ~ very dog friendly! We visited on an open-mike night ~ great fun, great atmosphere. Also The Tiger and Thai Restaurant in East Dean are only a short drive away.

The cottage was comfortable and convenient and although lacked a few extras experienced in other self-catering properties, was worthy of our 5 star rating.
