Reviewed 12 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. Biz and her family could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The house is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. We were in happy heaven all weekend. We’ll definitely be back for another visit.

Reviewed 22 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

A really well-presented cottage in superb grounds. Well placed for exploring, (Ashdown Forest, Knole Park, Pooh Bridge and tearooms) with good pubs close by. Biz was really helpful...happy to accommodate additional needs and responded to questions quickly. Would love to go again in the summer.

“Idyllic location and setup.”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Spent 3 nights at Duck House and thoroughly enjoyed all. Secluded yet near to town/supermarkets and well equipped for 2 couples (one double/one twin room to note). Grounds are amazing, literally jaw dropping, with friendly ducks (special note to Mr Sprout) wondering around. Communication with owner was friendly, efficient and a pleasure - would recommend a stay here without hesitation.

“Peace perfect Peace”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Such a wonderful place to wake up. Looking out over the ponds listening to the birds just a perfect way to start the day.
Everything in the cottage to ensure a comfortable stay and close to many visitor attractions and lovely towns.
We were visiting family and it was great to have somewhere we could relax after a busy day.

“Magnificent venue, loved the functionality and tranquility”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Duck house was excellent, well serviced cottage, very quiet and peaceful yet close to local services. Loved the serenity of duck pond, daffodils and the friendly dog. Very central to many tourist destinations. A very comfortable safe environment. Loved to come "home" and rest every day. Wonderful holiday.

“comfortable cottage in a beautiful garden”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We (2 adults, 2 teenagers and a dog) had a lovely stay in the Duck House. The cottage is very comfortable and very well equipped. The garden is impressive. It is connecting to al little forest, so it is easy do walk the dog.
The duck house is also a good starting point to visit attractions in East Sussex and Kent: Ashdown Forest (many described walks), Royal Tonbridge Wells, Brighton, London (Park-and-Ride to Victoria Station) - only to mention a few.
We would recommend to our friends.
