We were lucky enough to be able to stay in the cottage, prior to it's grand opening. Whilst the cottage was still in renovation (early June), it was only the garden that was still to be completed. The owners were well ahead of schedule it seemed.
The cottage is like a tardis- it doesn't look that big from the photos but inside it actually will sleep 8 easily + baby. It can probably sleep even more too. It is spacious and extremely well decorated and kitted out. Think of it as the John Lewis of rental properties (actually you will when you see that most of the items in the kitchen are from John Lewis!). The owners have catered well and there was no need for me to bring anything other than my food, clothing & toiletries which was great. The interior has been decorated & furnished to a high spec and is the best rental property I have stayed in so far. Despite being a terraced house, there was no noise from the neighbours. Opposite there is a Church & school so a pretty quiet location.
You will need a car as it is in a small village. It is worth a walk up to the windmill and see the views from there. It is lit up at night. The playground was an attraction for our twins aged 5. There is also an outdoor gym which my hubby & myself liked to use. There are 3 local shops plus a post office. There are many towns nearby.
Whilst it was very wet when we visited, we managed a quick visit to Camber Sands which looks lovely, although you do have to pay to park there. I found Rye a delightful place and wish we'd had more time to explore it (there is a nice seafood shop nestled between Rye & Camber). Ashford Designer Outlet is not far away either and we could easily have spent a whole day there. The nearby village of Appledore looked cute and we kept passing a lovely looking tearoom......
Next time we'll stay longer- it's a great cottage in a great location.
