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 space

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 !

Guest access

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.

Great location, beautiful little town. Loved the fact there was no wifi, TV or phone signal!! Enjoyed the vintage record collection very much. A perfect cute little house.

Quirky but comfortable accommodation. Single bed not great, but owner intends to replace this. Otherwise fine. Alfriston is beautiful and the house is dead centre to everything.

A perfectly located house, in the heart of Alfriston. Great for walkers completing the South Downs way, or just enjoying the scenic countryside and heart of the village. Very easy access to pubs, restaurants, the local store and bus routes to Eastbourne? Lovely to be able to have the entire house to ourselves- very quiet and comfortable stay: exactly what we needed! Thank you Mark for letting us take the dog with us to the location.

Alfriston is a lovely little village to stay in, and Mark's house is amazing. It was really great to stay in a 'whole place' airbnb which actually felt like a home (albeit a much cooler and cleaner home than ours...). The record collection is immense, and lends such a nice atmosphere to the house. The kitchen is great as well - really well equipped, with plenty of useful things. We had a great stay - would very much recommend!

Beautiful village, great pubs and lovely walks. Cottage is comfortable, quirky and in a fab location. We enjoyed the drums and the records, not sure if the neighbours do so tried to keep it quiet. The cottage is Mark's home so has a lived in feel which was a little too personal for us, but after saying that we had a very relaxed break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
