This was a xmss gift. We were made very welcome at this dog friendly location. The house was very quaint and cosy. All of the staff were very accommodating. There are some lovely walks near to the house.

What a beautiful building and surroundings. You have to be aware of very low ceilings in the main house if you wish to stay there. There is a much newer 'cottage' in the grounds and other accommodation (which I did not see) for those who may have a disability. The Winchelsea bedroom is above the kitchen. One huge disadvantage of... More

My husband and me decided to treat ourselves with something special. So after a research on the internet about romantic and nice places in which spend a weekend, we found the lovely Strand House in Winchelsea just nearby the old medieval town of Rye. Strand House has such a character...so beautiful and full of history....so spotless and so cosy. Our... More

We were lucky enough to find Strand House and to stay the night for my birthday. We had a fabulous afternoon tea and a glass of fizz on our balcony in the Battle Hill Suite overlooking the meadows on arrival. Great food and hospitality, and a beautiful house and garden with lots of character. Lovely canalside walk from the door... More

Returned to the Strand house after almost 30 years. New owners but still a wonderful place to stay. Marys team provided excellent food and Hugh was the ideal host. Thinking of staying? You will not be disappointed.

As an American travelling in the UK this is the ultimate bit of England; charming and picturesque. It was managed by two very passionate people who enjoy ensuring everything is perfect...especially the food. on a side note and this is not a negative as a 700 year old home is smaller than your average British and a lot smaller compared...

I got married at the Strand House this month, and if I had to sum up the experience I could only say Wow! Mary and Hugh, the owners, made the day simply amazing. They helped select the menu using an almost random list of our desires turning it into a delicious feast. Assistance was also given in decorating the house... More

I would heartily recommend Stand House to anyone as an outstanding B & B. The rooms (thoughtful), beds (really comfortable), toiletries (really good quality), breakfast (so much choice), service (beyond the call of duty- I even got a lone of pyjamas as I had forgotten to pack mine!) FIVE STARS ALL ROUND. Thank you so much for hosting my brother... More
