Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

How to get there
DIRECTIONS: Use WHAT3WORDS app: ///humble.phantom.hoops This code will bring you direct to our car park. From the A272, turn off at Hadlow Down into School Lane towards Crowborough. Keep straight on into Hastingford Lane for 2 miles, past Hastingford House, Hastingford Farm on left, and then Hastingford Cottage on right. In about 150 mtrs up the hill, our entrance will be found on the right with a wooden fish hanging outside, (Hastingford Oast entrance is on left). Go through black iron gates and The Fishery is about 200 mtrs along the track. From Crowborough town go through the High St, down the hill towards Jarvis Brook/Crowborough rail station. Pass this on your right, go under the bridge, and take Western Road 2nd turning on right. Go 1.2 miles, turn left just before Parkers and the bridge, onto Hadlow Down Road. Keep straight on into Hastingford Lane, go up the winding hill, then halfway down the next hill on the left you will see a wooden fish hanging outside. Narrow lanes so beware. Pick up/drop off service available to/from Crowborough or Buxted train stations or Five Ash Down bus stop (No 28 or 29 from Tunbridge Wells or Brighton).
