Deep in the High Weald AONB in the most tranquil of settings, Primrose Lodge is a cosy and contemporary one-bedroom holiday home. Escape to the country at this romantic rural retreat with log burner near Mayfield, East Sussex.
The beautiful old brickwork draws you to the double door entrance into the living area. The open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room greets you, finished in rich honeyed tones to create an inviting nook for a weekend break. Tucked away at the other end of this single-storey converted barn is the king size bedroom, with a large wardrobe and fantastic double-aspect views over the fields. The lovely bathroom has a deep double-end bath with rain shower, perfect for a refreshing wake up or a long, luxurious soak.
The living area opens onto the peaceful courtyard garden with seating, BBQ and a fire pit, looking out over pretty Wealden countryside. From the door there are plentiful walks and picturesque landscapes to explore, with the traditional village of Mayfield just a couple of miles away along winding country lanes. Offering underfloor heating throughout and a log burner too, it is a warm, snug country cottage to spend some quality time away from the madding crowds.
Primrose Lodge combines the boutique beauty of an exclusive hotel suite with the privacy and charm of a quiet rural setting, creating the perfect luxury hideaway.

Local areaThe bustling village of Mayfield is just 2 miles away, housing the 16th century coaching inn The Middle House, the fine Rose & Crown pub, a historic medieval church and a variety of independent shops, cafes and delicatessens. Larger supermarkets are available in Crowborough and Heathfield, both a 15-minute drive.
The pristine rolling countryside of the High Weald is protected by its Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, and offers an abundance of local attractions and places of interest. There are several National Trust properties nearby including Bateman’s, Scotney Castle and Sheffield Park. Wadhurst is a large, pretty village to the east, and just beyond, Bewl Water provides a wide range of watersports fun along with Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest. To the west, the Ashdown Forest covers 14,000 acres of lowland heathland made famous by AA Milne’s Winnie the Pooh. Throughout the whole Wealden and Ashdown areas there are ample public footpaths and cycle routes to explore, and an endless supply of excellent country pubs to visit.
8 miles north, the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is a great shopping and dining destination. The Pantiles is a wide pedestrian street with the vibrant atmosphere of a European city. A wide choice of cafes and restaurants offer a range of cuisines, enjoy a leisurely lunch and dine alfresco if the sun is shining. During the spring and summer months Tunbridge Wells comes alive with events. Relax with a coffee or glass of wine whilst listening to the jazz evenings at the open-air bandstand, or sample organic produce from the Saturday markets. There is a great mixture of high street and independent stores, spas, and plenty of antique shops to explore.
The cottage is really comfortable
We had a great time at Primrose Lodge! The cottage is really comfortable and we also enjoyed sitting outside a lot as the weather was mostly fine. The area is nice for hiking and we also visited some interesting National trust Properties - we loved Monk's House and Ightham Mote in particular.
Would highly recommend to friends and family
Loved staying at Primrose Cottage. It is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. We were over for my grandsons wedding and enjoyed site seeing around the area. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
Cozy Cottage in wunderful surroundings
Thank you for our stay in this cozy and tastefully decorated cottage. It was especially nice to have breakfast in the sun on the bench in front of the house with a view of the greenery. The location is ideal for trips to beautiful gardens and country houses. We especially enjoyed Scotney Castle and Sisdinghurst Garden!
