Kingshoath Cottage is a comfortable, a 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.

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 recommending the cottage to others looking to visit this part of England.

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

Great stay in a very well equipped cottage – especially for the 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 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!
