About this listing
Myles Cottage aka 'Rockstars' is a rural retreat with a difference. It is situated in the boundaries of the South Down's National Park, East Sussex within the soul of the historic village of Alfriston. My home is in a former stationing post for soldiers during the Napoleonic Wars dating from 1812. The theme of 'Rockstars' is a retro one, as an affordable place to stay; in a popular tourist destination at an inclusive Airbnb price. A great location for walkers and music fans alike.
The theme to my cottage is obviously a musical one, from my life long obsession with collecting vinyl and my career as a film editor and drummer. With over 500 l.p. records to access embracing all musical genres from Abba, to Frank Zappa and most Soul music, with pop classics in between from the 1950's to the present day, there is something for everyone. There is wealth of more obscure artists in my collection also for guests to impress the most knowledgeable of vinyl music aficionados. I also have my drum kit on display for guests to enjoy playing or just to try out for fun !
A film about the provenance of my cottage called ' ROCK STARS IN MY ATTIC' is available on dvd also plus the uncensored version of Kurt & Courtney I personally edited ! Also so guests are aware, there is no direct internet access or TV at my property but on my doorstep if WI-FI is required, guests are able to access it at the local Smugglers Inn pub opposite my house plus it is within a BT wi-fi hot spot zone, so no panic on this front. For entertainment there are many other films on DVD's to enjoy watching, catering for most tastes and of course the l.p records from my private collection for guests to enjoy listening to during their stay.There is even a 1970's working Goblin teas made in the master bedroom upstairs.
Interaction with guests
I will meet you if convenient to our mutual schedules and answer any questions you may have or want any clarification. Alternatively there is a key safe at the property which is easily accessible
Other things to note
Moderate smoking is permitted but I recommend the back courtyard where there is seating and on a clear nite is a perfect place to watch the stars. The back door is a good place to stand and smoke if need be as there is a stable door. Again, there is no direct Wi-Fi at the property but if you need the internet in all the local restaurants and pubs it is readily available.
House rules are minimal , relax and enjoy what my 'Rockstars' cottage has to offer. Enjoy listening to my extensive L.P. vinyl collection. Be respectful towards the space etc. Also all the rock-n-roll archive film footage which inspired the name of my cottage and which I found in my attic, can be viewed by guests on request. Regards, Mark Atkins.
