“Fantastic Bodiam!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our second stay at the Cricket Pavilion was lovely. Fab weather to make use of the lovely garden, perfect for the dog to run about and us to laze about!
Nice touches include the bread, eggs and Victoria sponge cake on arrival, after that and a BBQ we didn't go hungry.
Great location a short walk from the castle and pub and good places nearby drive away.
We will be back (again!)

“Another fantastic stay”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We came back here after two years away and the place is just as wonderful as last time. We were greeted like long lost relatives and there was a home made cake waiting for us and our previously ordered welcoming meal was excellent. The children's room was spacious enough for our 1 and 3 year old to share and the kitchen was well stocked to meet any family's cooking requirements.

The view was amazing and our son loved seeing the steam train puff into the nearby station every day. He also enjoyed visiting Bodiam castle which is a handy 5 minute walk away (very accessible with a buggy).

I would strongly recommend this property to families or to a couple who want a peaceful retreat as there are no nearby houses overlooking the plot. We look forward to seeing the owners in 2014 when we return.

“Perfect family holiday - could not ask for better”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the Old Cricket Pavillion for a week in July for our family holiday. We have two young children and the Pavillion was a perfect location for all of us (and our dog!). Terri was a very welcoming host and we greatly appreciated the delicious cake which was awaiting our arrival. The accommodation was perfect and had everything you could possibly need or want. We used the garden and outside space as a superb end to our days, sitting in the evening with a glass of wine, sausages (provided by Terri and definitely recommended) sizzling on the BBQ listening to the peace and tranquility all around. The area in which the Pavillion is located is also ideal as there is every sort of activity and environment within a short travel. We were lucky enough to have some great sunshine on our stay and went to Camber Sands which is a most for anyone who enjoys a great beach. I can't recommend this holiday rental highly enough. We had a wonderful, memorable family holiday and this was made even more so by the Old Cricket Pavilion and our wonderful hosts.

“a fantastic stay”

We had a fantastic stay at the pavilion cottage, the welcome from Terri was lovely, she couldn't do enough for us, our Son got married at Bodiam Castle, so we stayed on the rest of the week, and were glad that we did, what wonderful views and a lovely quiet restful holiday, looking forward to booking again soon.

“Lovely place in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The Old Cricket Pavilion has been beautifully renovated and is in a fantastic location with wonderful views. We stayed for two nights for a friend's 40th birthday and brought along our two dogs. There is a sunny and large secure garden which the dogs loved and every evening we'd walk around the grounds of Bodium Castle (5mins away) and have the whole place to ourselves.

What I really liked about the place is it's suitability for all seasons. The first night we had a BBQ in the garden and enjoyed the sunshine and alfresco dining. The following night (typically, as the British summer weather took a drastic turn for the worse) we equally enjoyed relaxing in the lounge with the large log burner keeping us warm.

I highly recommend the Old Cricket Pavilion and we will certainly be returning soon!
