Be kings and queens for a while as you rule your very own tower. Feast your eyes on the unique period charm at all corners while basking in the glorious views of the Sussex countryside.
As you draw up along the secluded lane deep in the Sussex countryside, you get your first glimpse of the flint and brick tower, reigning high above the woodlands. Gothic revival windows twinkle along every façade, welcoming to your very own lofty retreat. Step inside and your dreams of grandeur come true – rarely do holiday homes come as unique as this one. And all in absolute comfort.
Once the shooting lodge for the Ashburnham Estate, this three-storey tower offers the perfect combination of period charm and modern comforts. Shooting Box Tower is also about the views. Those vistas that greet you at every window on upper floors. Gaze far across the Sussex woodlands and pastures. Make the Cream Room or Country Room yours and those views stretch as far as Hastings on the coast.
Back downstairs, feast your eyes on the interiors. High ceilings, wood panelling with corbels, Gothic windows on all aspects and tapestries sitting on elegant wooden floors make up the open plan living space. Sit back in comfortable on the stylish sofas in front of the cosy wood stove set in the original fireplace as you return to the 21st century for a quick challenge on the Nintendo Wii.
Natural light floods into the kitchen too, also with an original feature fireplace and rustic look but fully equipped for modern culinary creations. Tasteful artwork by local artists graces every room and the tapestry theme runs throughout the tower adding a quirky touch.
Outside is just as lovely. Time your visit to see the carpets of bluebells and wild anemones in the woodlands, to enjoy the lush summer greenery or the unique glimpse of your tower clad in snowy white in the winter.

James and Roy lent us their toaster when the one in the cottage developed a fault and bought a replacement for the cottage the same day. Excellent customer service from the owners!Mr Simon Whiting - 8th March 2019

Exceptional property, exceptional hosts.Mr Toby Ejsmond-Frey - 3rd December 2018
Absolutely beautiful property. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We had a perfect stay.Deborah Roe - 26th June 2018
We had a fantastic time at the Shooting Box Tower, everything about the cottage (well house really) exceeded our expectations. The lounge in itself was wonderful and we all miss those super comfortable sofas. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked each evening a fantastic meal, everything from roast dinner to curry. The garden was lovely, plenty of seating and I may have just ordered a swing seat like at the property for my own garden. The location is wonderful, secluded on a quiet road but close to Battle, in fact we never ventured further than about 30 minutes drive to all the attractions we saw, such as Sissinghurst, Battle Abbey, Bodiam Castle, Bexhill, Hastings, Rye. I had no idea that you can have such a wonderful holiday down south, so we hope to return as there is simply so much to explore. Mrs Melanie Martin - 5th June 2018
It was beautiful and the ideal place for a large group to relax comfortably. Miss Jessica Ralph - 24th November 2017

A perfect holiday at a perfect place.Thank you to the owners.Mrs Dohler from Germany - 29th April 2014
We have been staying in holiday cottages for 18 years and this is the best yet. The furnishing is very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone with lots of thoughtful extras. James and Roy made us very welcome and the home made bread was delicious. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do. I recommend The White Hart in Netherfield - excellent food and service. If you want a relaxing break in a beautiful house then The Shooting Box Tower is the place for you.Cox - 2nd August 2008
We have had a delightful week at The Shooting Box. What a superb cottage and so well equipped, especially with extra touches, eg picnic boxes. Thanks for a great week.Green - 27th July 2008
