We would definitely recommend The Mount. A beautiful old building with lots of character. We had a fantastic stay with all the family. Everyone, inluding the teenagers, enjoyed it! We were a party of 10 and there was lots of space, so were never under each others feet. Even the bad weather didn't put a dampener on things. Will hopefully be going back one day...
We had a wonderful weekend at The Mount for my mums 60th birthday, the house is fabulous, full of character and so spacious. The kids loved exploring all the rooms, playing in the wonderful gardens and the great play room outside. There was plenty of room outside and inside for dining for our party of 13, ranging in age from 6 months to 60. The weekend we were there was incredibly hot, thankfully the house remained lovely and cool. We made a trip to camber sands one day and walked over the fields from the house to Rye another. Bernie and Heather were great and very accommodating, very quick to reply to messages, the whole booking process was very efficient. Thank you so much.
We have just got back from a three night stay at The Mount and I must say we had a great time. We were there with family to celebrate a 60th birthday and with 12 adults, a toddler and a baby we were a big party. However, The Mount veritably swallowed us up. At no point did we feel crowded or on top of each other. Everyone had their own room, all of which ooze character and original features whilst being comfortable and well appointed. The two sitting rooms have more than enough seating with the option of a wood-burning stove in one. For television watchers there were two choices. Then a wonderful big kitchen with Rayburn and conventional cooking options and every bit of equipment you could possibly need. We easily produced all meals for the entire gathered multitude with minimum effort and a great long kitchen table completed the picture. We took advantage off the magnificent dining room and even lit the fire in the inglenook fireplace on the evening of the grand birthday dinner. I have never stayed anywhere with such a wonderful selection of crockery, cutlery and glassware - it made everything so easy. Everything had been thought of and Bernie's relaxed and welcoming approach made us feel entirely at home. The location is spot one and a quick stroll across the field found us in Rye and all it has to offer. I would highly recommend The Mount for a stress free, relaxing weekend with the added joy of a spectacular building seeped in character and history. We had a great time and would definitely go back again if we are lucky enough to get a chance.
What a wonderful house 500 years old with low beams, and charming throughout, well stocked kitchen basics, a range type cooker made it very welcoming in the kitchen, in the morning, it had a warm cosy feel to the house with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy their area, we had the men watching footy, and the women could escape to another sitting room to admire the beautiful sunsets. good size dinning room that sat everyone around, and a large kitchen table too, Bernie kindly left us a cake, and when we thought we were getting low on supplies she came along with more, we didn't actually need them, the house has everything you need to have a great time ,games room, BBQ, seating, 2 fridges !!! with amazing views and a short walk over the field to Rye, also next door was a farm shop/tea room which although was expensive, was ideal for an emergency purchase, they did the most delicious ice cream, and there was a Costcutter less then 5 min drive away I would thoroughly recommend this house, for a large groups of family/friends, and Bernie was a very thoughtful host, we hope to return again in the winter and sit around the log fires !!

We returned for our second Christmas week at the Mount - with a new addition to the extended family! Once again the house was perfect and so full of character. It's even cosier now as it has full oil fired central heating but we still enjoyed using the log burner and open fire on special evenings. The owner is very helpful and welcoming. The kitchen is lavishly equipped - very important for all those Christmas meals. The house felt very festive with a decorated tree and outside lights! More happy Christmas memories for all 3 generations!
Wonderful cottage, will be back! Very close to everything and stunning inside. Even had a home made caked baked fresh for us all!
Booked The Mount for a long weekend break for our family of 11 to celebrate my parent's ruby wedding anniversary. Email communication was a bit difficult at times but that was only a small matter. The house itself was full of character, the older relatives were fascinated with the place! Facilities and amenities were great - everyone enjoyed the games room which also had toys to entertain our one year old nephew. The weather was perfect so we were able to make use of the BBQ and lovely garden. Bernie had mentioned that her daughter could cater a three course dinner for us (including the washing up!) so we availed of this for one night as a surprise for my parents which was well worth it! We had a wonderful relaxing stay at The Mount with great memories of a special time together!
