Nutley Edge is a beautiful rural property overlooking the stunning landscape of the Ashdown Forest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We offer some of the most picturesque holiday cottages in East Sussex.

Originally a working farm, the buildings were converted into self-catering holiday cottages in 2011 and opened to the public soon after. Nutley Edge is the perfect destination for couples, families or groups looking to ‘get away from it all’ and enjoy the peace and quiet of the East Sussex countryside.

You can choose from a range of quality accommodation, including twelve individual self-catering cottages, ideal for families and groups of friends, as well as a large four-bedroom Old Farmhouse and events venue. Want to bring your pets? We have dog-friendly holiday cottages. Nutley Edge is also available as a venue for group bookings and events, including wedding receptions. We can recommend some excellent local caterers.

The natural world on your doorstep

Set on eleven acres of rolling farmland, guests can roam our sheep paddocks, as well as a number of designated wildlife habitats, including a wildlife pond, spruce woodland and ancient gill woodland, which even has its own stream. There is also a country-challenge course and a nature trail.

Nutley Edge is a stone’s throw from the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you can really lose yourself in the natural world. Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, the Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access spaces in south east England.

Nutley Edge is a gated, secure site with CCTV. There is plenty of parking available on-site and you might also get to meet Popcorn and George, our resident goats.
