Out and About:

There is a mainline station at Wadhurst 5 miles away and the quaint village of Mayfield is 2 miles away. There are many things to do and see close by: the beautiful gardens at Pashley Manor which hosts an annual tulip festival, National Trust Properties at Hever, Bodiam and Scotney Castles. Battle is 17 miles away with its ruined Abbey and Herstmonceux Castle and Observatory Science Centre are an enjoyable day out as is Batemans, the former home of Rudyard Kipling. Charleston House, the former home of the Bloomsbury Set, is 24 miles away with circular walks from the house and a lovely tea room en route. If you're a fan of the Opera then Glyndebourne is approximately 40 minutes away.  The Seven Sisters Country Park is situated in the South Downs National Park and is perfect for walking, bird walking and cycling.  There are dedicated cycle routes and trails at nearby Bewl Water and Bedgebury Forest. Pevensey Bay is 26 miles away; dogs are allowed on this beach although restrictions may apply in high season. Rye and Camber Sands are to the south or Brighton with its eclectic mix is to the north.  The nearest pubs are in Mayfield where you will find The Rose & Crown which is dog friendly and The Middle House, both of which serve excellent food and local beers.  The Star at Old Heathfield again serves very good food and is dog friendly. Tunbridge Wells is a 20 minute drive and is an historical spa town also known for its vibrant cafe and shopping culture.



We live in Tunbridge Wells but came here as our windows are being replaced and also for some respite after a recent bereavement. A beautiful little house, well thought out and tastefully furnished. A lovely peaceful retreat.

Jill & B,

Thank you for a fabulous weekend, a perfect retreat for working without the distractions of home. We loved sitting by the fire and watching the sensational sunsets. The bed was really comfortable and the kitchen had everything for a cosy supper. The warm floors were a real treat on this frosty weekend. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

S&S R,

A gem of a cottage, so well thought out and spotlessly clean! Thank you, we had a wonderful cosy weekend, would like to return!

Previous Customer,

Lovely stay, will definitely be back.

Mr K,

We had a really lovely stay at Primrose Lodge. We even stayed a few extra days because we didn't want to leave! The surrounding countryside is stunning and thoroughly enjoyed the views. Thank you

Mr B F,

Perfect. Very pet friendly as well

Mr Tim B,

My only disappointment with our stay was that I couldn't find a single thing out of place. Absolutely perfect. The cottage has been created to the highest standard, with views to die. And for once a truly dog friendly set up, especially the log fire for them to snooze in front of. The ideal relaxing getaway. Hope to come back soon.

Mr B,

Nice lodge and wonderful surroundings to walk!

Previous Customer,

Quiet and peaceful "home from home" whilst in between house moves. Many thanks to Primrose Lodge

Previous Customer,

Booked at short notice and so pleased we managed to find Primrose Lodge. Had a busy week but the cottage provided all that we might have wished for. Similarly we only managed to scratch the surface of. the walks but loved them all and lots more to explore next time we are in the area.Thank you very much.

Mr J H,

A peaceful place to stay with nice views and lovely walks nearby. Easy access to Tunbridge Wells and the wonderful Batemans. Thank you very much.

guests from H,

I stayed here whilst attending a course which was quite hard work at times. The cottage was a welcome retreat each evening. Staying sunshine all week so no need to use the woodburner but it is a lovely addition and must be very cosy in cold weather

lady from S,
