Matchbox is a beautiful white weatherboarded, stylish holiday cottage for four in the heart of picturesque Winchelsea, East Sussex.

On entering the cottage you are met with a modern, calming, contemporary interior. In front of you is the galley style well-equipped kitchen. All the mod cons you would want when staying away from home. A 12 place setting dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine.

From the kitchen, you have direct access out to a small decked courtyard. A pleasant spot for a morning coffee or an evening BBQ (not currently provided).

The lounge diner is adjacent to the kitchen and is a beautiful spot to enjoy a quiet read, leisurely meals or answer those work emails if you must.

Stairs lead down to the TV snug with a large TV for movie nights in.

Stairs lead up to the first-floor king size bedroom comfortably furnished and with enviable views towards the church. Adjacent to the bedroom is a modern, stylishly finished shower room.

The second flight of stairs lead you to another king-size bedroom, the larger of the two bedrooms with beautiful views of the church. Adjacent to the bedroom is a bathroom with a large bath for lazy holiday soaks and finished to a high standard.

Everything about Matchbox speaks ‘class’ and has been finished to a very high standard. Due to the steep staircases, commonplace with a property of this age, we do not permit children under eight years. We welcome one well-behaved dog and some house rules apply.

    Super UK holiday - made even more special when returning to a beautiful village and house, with very comfy beds. Beautiful decor & lovingly looked after house. Everything was thought about. Thank you

    What a gem! Fab location, stylish decor, beautiful views, great facilities and altogether a perfect place for a staycation. Hosts have paid real attention to the little things like hairdryers and lovely bedlinen. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, parking right outside and even a little village shop. Will be back for sure!

    Matchbox is a glorious cottage and the perfect long weekend getaway, with beautiful sea views and so close to the gorgeous old town of Rye. Matchbox is so beautifully furnished and has been kept pristine, with a fully equipped kitchen and the softest comfiest beds. It was like staying at a 5 star hotel but with all the cosines of your own home! We had the loveliest time exploring the nearby towns, beaches and countryside and Matchbox was the perfect host. We can’t wait to go back there and can’t recommend it enough!
