Take a break from city life this Year

We’ve all heard of a city break, but what about a blissful getaway in the rolling hills of East Sussex? We can all let the hustle and bustle of our busy work lives take over, then before you know it you haven’t booked a holiday or trip yet.

Sometimes life gets too busy and you don’t have time to take 10 days out of your schedule for a holiday. That’s why a gorgeous, green countryside escape is perhaps what you need.

Why stay in the countryside?

Staying in the countryside can really give you a moment to stop, pause and breathe. Really take in the fresh air and countryside views. A weekend or mid-week break within a rural location will help you escape from the business of city life. It can feel like the whole world has slowed down and there is nothing but you and nature for miles. Staying in such a rural area will mean you will get the chance to see some beautiful animals that you might not usually see living in the city. You’re likely to spot deer, foxes, rabbits and all sorts of different types of birds from the comfort of your cottage.

A countryside getaway is the perfect time to put your hiking boots on and look up some local walks. East Sussex is home to some amazing trails and walks that you can take full advantage of.

Whilst on your walks, research into local pubs and coffee shops. East Sussex has some amazing rural pubs that ooze countryside cosiness. With open fires and great pub grub. It’s the perfect reward after a countryside stroll.

Bye, bye city life!

If you live in a busy city, it can sometimes seem like the countryside is miles away, when in reality places like East Sussex are only an hour away.

And one of the best things is we are really close to the sea as well!

If you are a family from London and are craving fields, fresh air as well as the south coast, you really can’t get any better than the countryside accommodation here at Blackstock Estate.

Meet here with friends, bring the family or perhaps organise a reunion with that close knit group who haven’t managed to see each other in a while! We have a great selection of accommodation which can offer endless opportunities for you all.


The Flint Cottage

Our Flint Cottage really is the perfect excuse for a family break in the countryside. With three double bedrooms all built with their own ensuites. A beautifully light and spacious lounge area, you simply won’t want to leave. The Flint cottage is equipped with a kitchenette that has a Nespresso coffee machine and complimentary tea and coffee (so, all the essentials really!). Each bedroom contains it’s own flat screen TV so everyone is happy within their own space.

You can rent this cottage on it’s own.

The Farmhouse

Get your whole family together and make your way to East Sussex, because The Farmhouse sleeps up to 12 people. Big family getaway, yes please! With 6 large luxury double bedrooms (three of them fitted with en-suite) sleeping up to 12 adults and 5 children, it is the ideal retreat for families or friends. Just like all our other accommodation you will have all the amenities you could need for a break in the countryside.

The Goat Shed

If you want to accommodate the rest of the family in the Flint Cottage or Farmhouse and would love a cosy romantic escape for two, then The Goat Shed is the perfect place to be. The Goat Shed is simply idyllic. With views of the Sussex Downs and it being far enough away from The Estate you will be nestled away for the perfect weekend break. The Goat Shed is equipped with all the amenities needed for a short stay. This includes a hairdryer, a modern bathroom, a super comfortable double bed and a furnished kitchenette with tea and coffee making facilities.

This is a really popular choice for our bridal couples when they book all of our accommodation.
