Situated on the Green of the historic East Sussex village of East Dean this cottage has a wealth of charm and great historical interest. Dating back to the 1600's the cottage was used by smugglers and underground tunnels were reputed to reach the Tiger Inn and the beach at Birling Gap. Alas the tunnels no longer exist but the Tiger Inn is only a few steps away and the seashore at Birling Gap a short walk. The pet friendly property is ideally located for walkers and country-lovers exploring The South Downs National Park, Seven Sisters Country Park, Beachy Head and the wonderful surrounding Sussex countryside. The property has 4 bedrooms and sleeps up to six guests. There are two reception rooms and a garden room. The pretty secluded garden to the rear of the property is terraced with steps between terraces. The cottage has Wifi throughout and all bedlinen and towels are provided.
