“beautiful location, exquisite interior”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed over Easter and used it as a base for our stay around the area. It was fairly easy to find, once we got out of bank holiday traffic. We found the cottage had everything we needed, the kitchenette is just lovely and I was able to prepare several full meals there. The shower room is just lovely, the shower pressure was a little bit less than desirable but that's the only picky thing you could possibly say!

On Easter Sunday I took a walk around the fields and found the neighbours on the farm were so friendly and helped me with a suitable route.

Lovely and peaceful and just what you need for a romantic getaway!

“Superb, Stylish and Spacious”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

What a wonderful find. We visit my aunts who live in Hastings, we have stayed at many different places in the area and this is by far the best.
Nat is efficient and friendly, he answers email queries quickly and is most helpful. He was there to welcome us when we arrived and even though we were quite late, because of a road closure, he took time to show us how things worked.
The lodge is spotlessly clean with plenty of room and is exceedingly comfortable. There is a very comfortable king size bed with quality bed linen and lovely pillows.
The bathroom has a fabulous extra large walk in shower with the bonus of big fluffy towels.
Garden furniture on the deck just outside the french windows so you can breakfast outside in the summer.
A private enclosed garden and beautiful views across the countryside. No one could ask for more.
We will certainly stay here again and recommend this beautiful lodge without reservation.

Thank you so much for such a great review. I'm really pleased you had a nice stay. Please come back again. We are in the process of purchasing the land adjoining us, so hopefully the view will be even better for your next visit! And I'll make sure those fluffy towels are there. :) Nice meeting you both.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just finished a stay here, and was pleasantly surprised, a small single story, self contained bed sit. Very clean and modern, overlooking a corn field and rolling countryside. The accommodation is next to the main house and you have the welcome of using the very spacious garden and helping yourself to the orchard, not only apples but pears and plums as well. A friendly visit from next doors Labrador is guaranteed. Nat is a pleasant and friendly host.

I didn't realise you can respond to this, so apologise for the delay. Thank you ever so much for my first review on Tripadvisor and your very kind words. It was great meeting you both and I haven't forgotten about the names of those plants you asked but I haven't been able to find out yet. I'm glad you had a nice stay. Hope to see you again in the near future.
