Twilight imae of Bothy Cottages

Laughton – East Sussex

Welcome Home


While the rural village of Laughton has ancient origins and ties to Roman Britain, it’s still very much a thriving and modern East Sussex community. You’ll find the cottage just on the outskirts, where the original gateway belonging to the old hospital reveals a quiet and leafy residential road bordering a Georgian manor house.


Continue down the road to find the cottage, which comes with two off-road parking spaces and a handsome red brick exterior dotted with large latticed casement and awning windows. Follow the pathway along a big front lawn fringed by trees and hedgerow, arriving at a porch with a part-glazed front door.


Inside, recessed downlights illuminate a reception hallway with travertine flooring and soft-toned walls with coved ceilings. To your left is a downstairs cloakroom with a window to the porch, where there’s space to store coats and shoes.  


Family Goals


The travertine flooring continues in the bright open plan dining kitchen, which lies straight ahead from the hallway. Here, a fantastic range of cream shaker-style cabinetry with decorative handles and a metro-style tiled splashback creates a wide galley-style layout that overlooks the garden through a large casement window. 


Integrated appliances and features include a range cooker with extractor hood, a microwave, a 1.5-bowl ceramic sink, a concealed dishwasher and washing machine, and space for a dryer and an American-style fridge-freezer. There’s also a part-glazed back door with cat flap just before the dining area, where French doors open to the garden.


Lying beside the dining area and echoing its up-lights and chandelier fittings, the living room allows for an easy flow that’s ideal for entertaining or just spending time together. While another big window soaks in the view across the front lawn, solid oak flooring and a contemporary fireplace replete with slate hearth, wood-burning stove, and oak mantle combine for a cosy and cheerful atmosphere. A similarly decorated adjoining home office or generous snug with matching solid oak flooring completes the downstairs. 


Retreat Upstairs 


From the hallway, a carpeted staircase with white-painted bannisters rises to an extensive landing. Straight ahead is a shower room containing a corner enclosure, a white vanity unit incorporating a basin and the toilet cistern, a chrome heated towel rail, and an awning window to the garden. Just to the right, you’ll find two good sized double bedrooms to the front and rear. Both have laminate floors, coved ceilings, space for additional furniture, and serene views. 


The main bathroom lies to the front and features an awning window and storage alcoves above a panelled double-ended bath. The tiled splashback continues around a basin set within a white panelled vanity unit with attractive chrome handles. A tiled floor, chrome heated rail, and wall-mounted rail add style and practicality. 


Follow the landing to find a third double bedroom. Beyond, the carpeted principal suite boasts an entire wall of integrated wardrobes and feature floral wallpaper reflecting the leafy scenes from the rear casement window. Of course, any master wouldn’t be complete without a fully tiled wet room with a double walk-in rainfall shower, pedestal basin, and close-coupled loo. 


Step Outside


While a beautiful, well-tended lawn with surrounding trees and plant borders frames the cottage’s charming frontage, doors from the dining kitchen open onto a fully enclosed rear garden. Neighbouring trees to the rear provide seasonal scenery and privacy as you enjoy quiet moments under the pergola or barbeques on the far terrace, reached by stepping stones crossing the lawn. There’s also space for a sizable shed and a small vegetable patch beside the patio.


On Your Doorstep


Laughton is a family friendly village in the Wealden District of East Sussex, five miles (8 km) east of Lewes, on the minor road to Hailsham (B2124). With The Roebuck public house, a popular local-run shop serving coffee, and a post office accessed by a roadside footpath, Laughton very much offers a traditional English feel centred around community life. 


There’s also a community recreation ground behind the nearby Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ primary school and a private cricket ground behind the village hall in Church Lane. Next to the village shop, Pound Lane leads to some lovely woodland where you roam freely or walk the dog. 


Just a short drive away in Ringmer, you’ll find a GP surgery and the King’s Academy secondary school, which has a bus service that picks up and drops off at the end of
the drive. A little further away, the market town of Lewes delivers a diverse mix of specialist and independent shops, historic buildings and landmarks, cobbled streets and Anglo-Saxon alleyways. 


Alongside its thriving markets, the town hosts the Glyndebourne festival and the Lewes Bonfire celebrations. Lewes is also a great starting point for exploring the Vanguard Way long-distance footpath, the South Downs Way, and the Greenwich Meridian Trail. 


The Brighton & Hove bus company and Compass Travel serve the town, while the station runs hourly fast trains to London and connections to Brighton, Eastbourne, and Hastings. In addition, the area’s encircling A-roads include the A22 to Eastbourne, the A26 to Lewes, and the A27.


Just a 25-minute drive from Eastbourne’s beaches and a brilliant range of amenities, Laughton balances a peaceful village backdrop with convenience – ideal for modern family life.
