Quiet and comfortable property, with great views and good location. Owners were pleasant and very helpful. 2 great pubs nearby ‘The bulls Head’ and the ‘The Ash Tree Inn’, with excellent food.

mr D,

Nicely situated. Rolling countryside and plenty of sheep to keep one amused. Proprietor friendly and helpful. Ideal for a short break away from the City. Decent pub a short stroll away.

Ms W,

This was a delightful cottage situated in the grounds of the owners' farm in the lovely East Sussex countryside. It was well appointed and very suitable for anyone with a disability being all on one level and including a wet room. The main room was very comfortable and faced out onto a field of sheep and lambs. The cottage was well situated for visiting local places of interest such as Herstmonceaux Castle and Michelham Priory and was only a few miles from the coast at Bexhill. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet peaceful break in the countryside.

Miss B,

Beautiful peaceful cottage surrounded by lovely birds and farm animals. Perfect rural escape. Clean, comfortable and well equipped.
