“Wonderful character cottage”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

Wonderful cottage full of character in a lovely setting in the countryside - utter peace and quiet. Every amenity is provided that you could possibly need. The cottage is very spacious and extremely comfortable and even has a log burner. Ideal location for many tourist spots in the area. Great for dog walking as well. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful.

Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The cottage is very spacious and has every home comfort you could possibly want. It is ideally located to explore Sussex and Kent but in a peaceful countryside setting so perfect for relaxing or exploring.

There is a large lounge/dining area and a well equipped kitchen. Two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite, both with showers.

Both bedrooms are roomy and have plenty of storage and hanging space.

David the owner is very welcoming and has helpful tips about the local area and beyond.

This is our 5th visit to the cottage and I can't recommend it enough. It really is a lovely place to stay.

“A perfect cottage!”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This cottage is just perfect. If you think it looks spacious in the photos, you won't be disappointed. There's a large kitchen/dining/living room area, a nice family bathroom with bath tub and shower, a bedroom with two single beds and a large bedroom that you could dance in if you wanted to with double bed and ensuit bathroom. Everything is clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped and even provides a dishwasher. There's garden furniture in front of the cottage that is probably really nice in summer (we didn't use it in October).
Most of the time there is no mobile phone signal in the cottage, but wifi is available in the living area (it doesn't reach the bed rooms).
The location of the cottage is great as well, you can get to Brighton, Birling Gap, Beachy Head, many castles and other historical sights in no time and have nature and nice walks just around the corner.
David, the owner, is very friendly. We even found a little basket with wine, cookies and tea when we arrived - really appreciated that. Definitely recommend staying at this wonderful cottage to everyone!

“Excellent Cottage”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was much bigger than we expected from the photos. Very clean well decorated and it still retains its character. In a good location for touring around the Eastbourne area. We did a lot of walking we have a 9 month old puppy she had a great time. Cottage is in a quiet location but within easy distance if main road. The flowers and bottle of wine left by David the owner was most welcome!

“Perfect home away from home with everything you need in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

All rooms were clean, bright and spacious. There was a welcome hamper waiting for us from the owner. We will definitely be returning next year. There is a charming pub not far which served fantastic food. Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting.

“well presented, perfect location and very homely”

person found this review helpful

The cottage was very well presented, with everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay. The welcome hamper was much appreciated. The layout of the cottage and the double shower in the master en-suite lends itself well to those with limited mobility. Location was superb, quiet countryside with a great walk around the farm. I will definitely return.
