Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely long weekend at the cottage and found it to be clean and well thought out. There was everything that you would need and some. The owners were very friendly and approachable for any issues that arose due to ill children. The poll is fantastic, clean and heated with everything you would need to enjoy it available. We have already booked another weekend !

“fabulous!”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fantastic holiday for our family of 4 and dog (2 boys aged 12 & 9). Cottage was perfect, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Owners were amazing, provided great service with so many extra touches. Swimming pool and gardens were gorgeous, pool warm, clean and it was difficult to get the boys out! I'm no gardener but these gardens are well tended and loved. Location is great too, a super walk to Hastings and to a quiet beach. Rye is only 15/20 mins in the car and is a perfect old town.

Perfect for a walking holiday and also for families, highly recommended.

Had a wonderful short break. The cottage is immaculate and the bed a dream! The added bonus was the indoor swimming pool. Would definitely go back to Swallows Nest again.

This was undoubtedly the best holiday home we have ever stayed in. The cottage was clean, tidy and all modern amenities. Ideally situated yards from Hastings Park with lovely walks and views. Also ideally situated for the many National Trust sites in the South East. And after a lovely day out and about the indoor swimming pool was a wonderful extra treat. The welcome pack was also excellent with flowers on the table, cider and milk in the fridge, tea/coffe/biscuits, etc. also. Chris and Erick were excellent hosts, very friendly but did not impose themselves during the holiday. Have defintely pencilled this in for a future visit.
