“Home away from home”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This whas our third stay at the Byre and once again it was fantastic. Julia and Paul are always willing to help you to find places to go to, where to find the best tearoom or a good pub. Special thanks for letting us eat so many vegetables and fruits from your garden, i never new that broadbeans could taste so delicious! Our dog Paddy had the best time ever with Wellie, they have worn eachother out every single day. The Byre is very well equiped, the bed is the best one i have ever encounterd in any cottage, as i am 1.92 meters that is a challenge. The Byre is situated in a very quiet area but a Sanesbury's superstore and a Tesco's superstore are only 10 minutes away, for good meat the's Archers' in Westfield.

“I loved this place!....didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This beautiful cottage is set in a tranquil and very attractive part of the countryside, yet so convenient to the stunning gardens, castles and picturesque villages of East Sussex. Also only minutes away by car from historic Hastings and Battle. Real 1066 country! Wonderful walks direct from the door and always a spare dog around if you have forgotten to bring your own! :)
Julia and Paul are perfect hosts and have thought of everything you might require with lots of information and also extra little treats of fruit and veg etc from the garden.
I can understand why all the guests seem to return year after year and I'm sure I will be doing the same!
Who needs to go abroad when you can have such a super holiday here? The weather was fantastic as well.
I feel well rested and ready to face the real world again but a little piece of my heart will always stay at Byre Cottage, Pattletons. I loved it!

The picture you painted of Ghilly looks fantastic,thank you so much.
We are looking forward to your next visit.
