“LOVELY COTTAGE”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The cottage is in the perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area as it is in a nature reserve. You can walk out the door and straight on a beautiful walk which our dog loved. The cottage is like home from home and we would highly recommend for a relaxing comfortable holiday. We used the pool every day before breakfast which was great and was a good start to the day.
Chris and Erick are great hosts they are around if you need them but not in your face which we liked.

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Covehurst Bay is a self catering cottage near Hastings...but it is much more than that!

The cottage belongs to Chris and Erik who live in the adjacent house and they have furnished it to a very high standard. There is a comfortable lounge area with a Smart TV, well appointed kitchen/dining area and a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Wifi was also very good in all areas of the cottage

On arrival we found a welcome tray of tea and coffee (with milk and orange juice in the fridge), biscuits, sweets and nibbles and lovely bowl of fruit as well.

The highlight for me was the bed which was a super king size (which could be changed into two singles on request) and was the most comfortable bed I have slept in. Mattress, pillow and duvet were perfection and we took the supplier details home with us!

The indoor swimming pool is a short walk from the cottage and was enjoyable on one of the poorer weather days. I imagine it would be great for a pre-breakfast swim if you can drag yourself away from that bed!

Chris and Erik were great hosts who answered any questions with a warm friendliness, even providing tide tables for an area we were proposing to visit, and seem genuinely interested in any feedback you give them.

This is a lovely place to stay to explore the surrounding area and is highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay here. The house is beautiful and new. Our two young children were very happy to sleep there. We love the swimming pool and everything at this cottage. Strongly recommended.

“Gorgeous location, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

It's not just that the cottage is beautifully put together and thoughtfully equipped, but there's an overriding feeling about the place that this is exactly how the owners would want to the place to be if they were staying in it themselves -- there is no greater courtesy they could show to their guests than that. It's a lovely place to stay for a bit of peace and quiet, plus the walks and the local area are just luscious. If I hadn't had to go on somewhere else, I might have claimed squatters' rights and be living in there still.
