Kingshoath Cottage is a comfortable, well-equipped grade II listed 16th-century character cottage situated in a country lane on the outskirts of the village of Beckley, between Rye and Battle.  The cottage is a short walk from a country pub the "Rose & Crown" and less than 8 miles from the Sussex coastline and beaches of Camber Sands.

The property accommodates up to 8 guests, although smaller parties often book and enjoy the space (small party discounts available for parties 5 and under).


Our Cottage

Kingshoath offers an opportunity to step back and relax in a versatile, warm, homely environment that seeks to maintain its rustic roots. Oak beams throughout and spacious floor area downstairs, space for the whole family. The cottage has a large lounge with open log fire, a separate dining room with an adjoining small sitting room, a modern fitted country kitchen, study c/w library, utility room, two bathrooms and four bedrooms (two double and two twins).

To the rear of the cottage is a well maintained enclosed mature lawn garden complete with summer house and is child friend - children's swing, garden furniture / toys, BBQ. To the side of the cottage is off road parking for three cars.  Within 400 metres from the cottage is a traditional English country pub (Rose & Crown) which serves good home cooked food in a genuine country atmosphere.

This is a truly wonderful location for exploring 1066 country, providing easy access to the Sussex Coastline / Beaches as well as the ancient towns of Battle, Rye and Tenterden or just relaxing with a good book.

If you are seeking something different, take the steam train from Northiam to the picturesque Bodium castle and have a picnic or, the antique and coffee shops in Tenterden. Visit many of the formal gardens - Great Dixter is nearby.  For shoppers, there is a very good factory outlet shopping centre at Ashford (McArthurGlen) that caters for many luxury designer brands.  Alternatively, either take the Euro shuttle for a days shopping in France or a light aircraft flight from Lydd to Le Touquet.  Plenty of good walking, horse riding, golf, water sports or simply relaxation in front of an open fire.

Relax in the spacious enclosed garde, visit local houses and gardens,  enjoy the coast line and beaches, travel back in time on the steam train to villages and castles.  These are just some of the many things to enjoy from kingshoath.

What some of our guests have said...

Superb winter break cottage
We had a great winter family break in this fantastic cottage. Really comfortable with lots of period charm, lovely and cosy too with everything you need. Hosts were super helpful and kids loved the welcome pack! Local area has lots to do, close to Rye and Hastings, also the local pub is a classic. We will have to come back in the summer to enjoy and garden and beaches! - Jan 2024

Beautiful cottage

We absolutely loved our stay, it was cosy but still spacious for the seven of us. Comfortable beds, everything we needed. Would love to visit again, thank you x - November 2023

Wonderful cosy break
The cottage was an excellent getaway with a lovely garden. In a great location - close to lots of interesting spots but staying in was also a treat. It's a cosy place with bags of charm but was also comfortably big enough for 8. The beds and linens were excellent. The hosts were great communicators and they had thought of everything to make the stay easy. Would love to go back! - Date November 2023

Excellent stay
We had a lovely stay. Very well equipped and my 3 year old nephew thoroughly enjoyed all the toys! The instructions were very helpful as well. The living space is spacious & the original features make this a lovely home full of character. The garden is great too & would be nice during warmer weather!- October 2023

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay in your beautiful, well-equipped cottage, perfect for a chilled winter weekend.

We much appreciated you coming out to us so quickly ref the heating issue - and we're relieved it was a genuine fault and not us not knowing how to work it. Thanks also for the extra logs. - Date December 2022

Beautiful, well-equipped cottage
Carol and Ian have thought of everything - they have provided all that you might need as well as a wonderful welcome basket! The cottage has all the charm of a period home and is very well-equipped. It is within easy walking distance of the Rose and Crown, a traditional English pub with a very friendly landlady, and is ideally placed for visiting Rye, Camber, Romney Marsh, and all that the area has to offer. We only spent the weekend here but wish that it could have been longer! - Date November 2022

Fabulous cottage in the countryside
This property worked its magic for our family’s purposes with was to have relatives of all ages to come to visit us while staying comfortably in this gorgeous medieval renovated cottage with all the modern conveniences. Ian and Carol were most helpful. - Date; September 2022

A fantastic property for a quick break to catch up with a couple of old friends. It really was picture-perfect and the owners Ian and Carol could not have been more helpful. There were lots of small touches including a box of goodies on arrival. I would highly recommend this property which sits within some beautiful countryside with Rye and Battle nearby. - Date of arrival - 16 May 2022    

Kingshoath is a stunning, cozy, warm, fantastically well-equipped home-away-from-home. With two big communal spaces and a beautiful garden, there is plenty of room for a group of friends to hang out, cook, eat, sleep, and spend quality time together. The communication was fantastic, before and during our stay. And the location couldn't have been better. We can't recommend it highly enough! - Date  - 12 November 2021    

Lovely old roomy home. We enjoyed trying to figure out how the building had been transformed from the 1660s to the present day. Fully modern bathrooms were a welcome plus. The large back garden would delight any child. Very good location. -

Excellent communication with the owners before and during our stay. Really comfortable cottage with everything we needed for a super holiday. Loved the spacious downstairs areas and garden. Lots to do in the local area for kids and teens - Camber Sands, pony trekking, Adventure Golf in Hastings and English Heritage site in Battle. We ate really well in pubs all within 25 mins drive of the property. Thank you for the recommendation for the White Dog Inn, that was a real favourite. - Date of arrival - 27 August 2021    

We had a beautiful long weekend at this cosy cottage made all the better by the very thoughtful welcome pack from the hosts (including our favourite some welcome sherry!) Local pub is lovely and there are great walks / runs / rides in the area. We also took the recommendation from the pub and went kayaking locally at lime wharf cafe which was a lovely thing to do on a crisp October day. The hosts provided tons of information to make our stay easy and the cottage is fantastically equipped meaning cooking up a huge Sunday roast was no problem. Gorgeous real fire in living room and generally a lovely winter hangout   - Date of arrival - 16 October 2020    

A very homely cottage. Ideal for a family group. Everything provided that you may need especially in the kitchen. Lovely arrival hamper with treats. Great location for beach and places to visit.    Date of arrival - 15 August 2020    

Hi just wanted to say we had the most amazing time in your cottage we all loved it so much the helpful tips around the house came in handy kids absolutely loved the garden and toys available it was by far one of our best holidays and we will be coming back in the near future you are both wonderful hosts and I couldn’t possibly think of anything to make the stay better I believe the house accommodates everyone’s needs both old and young in a perfect quiet area such a lovely change from the noise and fast pace lifestyle you get In London Thank you again for allowing us into the lovely home.​  July 2020

Our family group of eight found Kingshoath to be very comfortable for nearly a week. The cottage is cozy with plenty of the authentic eccentricities one expects in a nearly 400-year-old wattle and daub home. The location is excellent with plenty of conveniences and attractions nearby. The house is well equipped for small children with a high chair and cot as well as indoor and outdoor toys to keep them occupied. We highly recommend this property. Thank you!  Date of arrival - 9 March 2020


We had a wonderful break. Lovely spacious house with great facilities. My 4-year-old particularly loved the collection of Thomas books. A very warm welcome basket, much needed and set us up for the week. Will hopefully be back. 

The cottage was all and more than we had hoped for. Comfortable and spacious with a lovely garden which, as we were blessed with exceptionally good weather, we were able to enjoy to the full. We very much hope to return again and would certainly have no reservations about recommending the cottage to others looking to visit this part of England.

One of the best cottages we have rented, appreciated the kid's toys and friendly welcome touches. Would love to come again!

Great stay in a very well-equipped cottage – especially for young children.


We had a great time in your cosy cottage. Thanks!


We are “The Arty Farties”  We came, We saw, we painted! We had a wonderful time.  Thank you for your hospitality! We have had a great time.

Thank you very much.  Your cottage was perfect.  It was everything I had imagined and more.  It even snowed for a brief while on Boxing Day to add to the magic.


One of the most relaxing New Year Breaks we have had.  The accommodation setting was perfect, topped off by walking in the snow on New Year’s Day.


Very roomy and well-equipped.  Great garden and games. Home away from home.  We enjoyed walking and relaxing.  Thanks for a fun-filled break.


We have had a fantastic week!  Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage.


Wonderful stay! Hearty thanks to our hosts!
