“Perfect family holiday - could not ask for better”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the Old Cricket Pavillion for a week in July for our family holiday. We have two young children and the Pavillion was a perfect location for all of us (and our dog!). Terri was a very welcoming host and we greatly appreciated the delicious cake which was awaiting our arrival. The accommodation was perfect and had everything you could possibly need or want. We used the garden and outside space as a superb end to our days, sitting in the evening with a glass of wine, sausages (provided by Terri and definitely recommended) sizzling on the BBQ listening to the peace and tranquility all around. The area in which the Pavillion is located is also ideal as there is every sort of activity and environment within a short travel. We were lucky enough to have some great sunshine on our stay and went to Camber Sands which is a most for anyone who enjoys a great beach. I can't recommend this holiday rental highly enough. We had a wonderful, memorable family holiday and this was made even more so by the Old Cricket Pavilion and our wonderful hosts.

“a fantastic stay”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a fantastic stay at the pavilion cottage, the welcome from Terri was lovely, she couldn't do enough for us, our Son got married at Bodiam Castle, so we stayed on the rest of the week, and were glad that we did, what wonderful views and a lovely quiet restful holiday, looking forward to booking again soon.

“Lovely place in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The Old Cricket Pavilion has been beautifully renovated and is in a fantastic location with wonderful views. We stayed for two nights for a friend's 40th birthday and brought along our two dogs. There is a sunny and large secure garden which the dogs loved and every evening we'd walk around the grounds of Bodium Castle (5mins away) and have the whole place to ourselves.

What I really liked about the place is it's suitability for all seasons. The first night we had a BBQ in the garden and enjoyed the sunshine and alfresco dining. The following night (typically, as the British summer weather took a drastic turn for the worse) we equally enjoyed relaxing in the lounge with the large log burner keeping us warm.

I highly recommend the Old Cricket Pavilion and we will certainly be returning soon!

“fabulous, peaceful and glorious home from home.”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Old Cricket Pavilion, which was clean and tidy and the added touch of a cake, fresh bread and eggs waiting for us was really nice.

We took our dog and there are so many walks to go on, especially by the river which runs not far behind the cottage, Bodiam Castle is literally on you door step, also Hastings, Battle and Rye are but a short drive away.

The area was very quiet and peaceful, the cottage had all mod cons you would get at home and we would thoroughly recommend staying here.

“Another enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Another enjoyable holiday at the Cricket Pavilion, everything was perfect as normal, but with the added bonus of Christmas decorations, which put us in a festive mood ready for our visit to see Santa at Bodiam Castle!! Thanks Terrie for making the Pavilion so welcoming for our arrival, we're already making plans for next years visits.
