Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A quiet ad restful week with lots to do and see within a relatively short distance. The cottage is very comfortable and well fitted out. July 2012.
  2. Amazingly quiet location if you are looking to get away from it all. Owners very friendly and leave you to it after the introduction.Lots of wild life in the garden, (good for photography). Lots of National Trust places in the area to visit, and a lovely walking area. June 2012.
  3. Very friendly; nice extras. May 2012.
  4. Lovely, comfortable and clean with everything needed for a pleasant stay in the countryside. An excellent place to stay for a getaway in East Sussex. March 2012.
  5. Fantastic setting for the cottage, lovely country views from the garden, very peaceful, just what we wanted. Liked the open plan layout, the wine and log burner. We stayed here in September and the weather was reasonably good, only the odd light shower. Some great walks nearby across the fields, doing them was a real treat. Would definitely recommend the cottage, for the location, a car/hire is needed though. Plenty of places to visit nearby, so all within easy distances by car. Sept 2011.
  6. This was our second visit to this property and would definitely stay there again. We stayed in the depths of winter last year and during the hot early spring weather and both times we were very comfortable. Everything one needs is there for a comfortable stay.The owners are very friendly.The scenery surrounding the cottage is beautiful. April 2011.
  7. Excellent accommodation, clean, cheerful and bright with fantastic views to the Downs. On the one cold day it was lovely to be able to light the log burner. The owner Ursula was extremley helpful and pleasant. April 2011.
  8. Excellent facilities in a lovely setting. Ideal base to explore Kent particularly the many National Trust properties in the area and the coast and we could take our dog! March 2011.
  9. We had a superb holiday, the owners of the cottage were helpful, friendly, fine people! Feb 2011.
  10. Lovely self-contained retreat with everything we needed. Very peaceful location. Feb 2011.
  11. Nice decor and furnishings. Spotlessly clean and well cared for. Woodburner is wonderful and added touches of flowers, wine, maps, books, cd’s and dvd’s an extra bonus. The owners were very welcoming and would recommend this and also visit again! Feb 2011.
  12. Very cosy and comfortable. There was as much wood for the wood burner as we wanted so we didn’t have to buy more when the wood basket emptied. Great view from accommodation. Six acre field to run our dog as well as large grassed area around the cottage. Walks from the door. Jan 2011.
  13. Loved the location & the gorgeous cosy feel of the log burner. Facilities were very good & the bed was so comfortable! Perfect retreat for couples. Dec 2010.
  14. Small & cosy for two people. Plenty of heating including a log fire. Well stocked kitchen. Great views. Nov 2010.
  15. The owner and the property itself were outstanding, the extra touches, attention to detail and the comfort of the cottage was beyond compare, we are definitely going to be returning to this property and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. Oct 2010.
  16. Everything one needed for a self catering holiday was provided, and a bottle of wine too. Not having stayed in a studio before we thought the Old Library would be on the small size - not a bit of it - lovely sized kitchen and bathroom, and a real comfy bed a treat. Everything as clean as a whistle, a great self catering find. Oct 2010.
  17. Location, modern, clean accommadation; friendly, helpful owners. Sept 2010.
  18. Everything you need including a very big bed. Sept 2010.
  19. On entering the cottage the main room had a wow factor; we knew it would be a good week. Aug 2010.
  20. Hard to find better, unusually good! July 2010.
