Dairy Cottage is situated in the heart of Holbeam Wood farm in the rural East Sussex countryside with spectacular views across meadows. The property is betwixt Wadhurst and Ticehurst, both villages offering a good range of local shops, cafes and excellent pubs. The spacious living area is open plan and is furnished in a comfortable traditional style offering country living.  There is a cosy wood burning stove to gather around and there is a raised outside seating area which can be also accessed from the master bedroom.  The master bedroom is on the ground floor along with the bathroom making this property suitable for guests with impaired mobility.  There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, bedroom 2 is accessed through bedroom 3 - ideal as a family room or for children to share.  Dairy Cottage is a real home from home offering an escape to the countryside with great access to walking and cycling and is a great base from which to explore the local area whether you are looking to visit some of our castles, Bodiam and Scotney or our famous gardens at Sissinghurst and Pashley Manor, you will find something for all the family to enjoy.  There are two local golf courses at Dale Hill and Lamberhurst and there are water sports and fishing at Bewl Water.  London is only an hour from Wadhurst station.

This property is in a lovely location overlooking countryside with a huge number of places to visit nearby. We particularly loved Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Pashley Manor as well as many other attractions within easy reach by car. Dairy cottage owners are particularly helpful and are keen to make your stay with them as comfortable as possible. We loved it here and hope to go back again in the near future.

Mr N,

Very comfortable well equipped cottage in a beautiful setting. Quiet and secluded, with plenty of wildlife around to watch as well as the farm animals! Perfect for our dog too. You will need to use the car though, especially to visit some of the many lovely gardens and NT properties around and the nearest pub isn’t really a walk away. Bewl reservoir is a lovely setting but we were disappointed not to be able to paddle board there. We found Bodium bridge instead which was excellent.

Ms N,

Comfortable and well-equipped property in a peaceful location on a farm, sheep in the nearby fields. The views were amazing over the Kent countryside. Comfortable beds, good bathroom facilities and very reliable wifi. The woodburner was easy to use. Friendly welcome from the owners including Tess the dog. Lots of walks to do from the property. Would definitely love to return.

Mrs M,

The Field is beautiful. The beds are really comfy. We had a lovely holiday. Thanks

The E,

Fantastic barn, very spacious with everything you need. We were very lucky with the weather. We will definitely recommend The Bluebell railway for a very enjoyable evening. We will certainly be back, Thank you.

Previous Customer,

Great stay, stunning view and we loved the cows who came to inspect us on our arrival.

Previous Customer,

We thoroughly enjoyed our week. The initial heatwave provided a brief chance to enjoy the veranda before autumn arrived. This is a great base for some spectacular walks and so lovely to return to the serenity of the barn and it's wonderful views. Many thanks

Previous Customer,

A Fabulous few days at Dairy Cottage. Peaceful and relaxing and we give 5 stars for the cottage. It has been one of the nicest places we have stayed in. Friendly, war, and cosy, we will definately be back. Thank you!

Previous Customer,

We had the best time. So peaceful and quiet (apart from the odd Spitfire which represents joyful music to my ears rather than an intrusion), and the cottage was one of the nicest we've stayed in during our married life (over 20 years). We will come back as soon as we can 'engineer' the time off.

Previous Customer,

We want to thank you for organising our trip to Dairy Cottage, it was all very last minute! We also want to thank Jane for being a wonderful host. We wanted to upload a review, but as we can't do that directly we've forwarded it on to you. We had a wonderful short break at Dairy Cottage over the May Bank Holiday. • Jane is a great host, we got a very warm welcome. The cottage has been put together with a lot of thought and is well kitted out. • The location is wonderful. At the top of a valley, the views are beautiful with no one overlooking the property. • Ticehurst and Wadhurst are both beautiful villages, with great pubs, delis etc. There's also Bewl water, as well as Bodiam castle, Battle, Hastings - so masses to do within 30 mins drive. The cottage is a real find. Highly recommended.
