The Old Vicarage is a classic Georgian house in the heart of 1066 country. The village of Icklesham is close to the historic Cinque Ports of Rye 5m, Winchelsea 2m, and Hastings 7m. There are some fantastic beaches nearby.
Guests are encouraged to make use of the patio and gardens where there are several areas in the sun or shade to take in the fresh air and tranquil surroundings. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside, apple orchards with many public footpaths, and a nature conservation wood within easy walking distance from the house.
