“Benchmark quality and great location”
Reviewed February 7, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is the best holiday rental I have ever stayed in by far - furnished to a high standard, really comfy and it's as though the owners have anticipated everything you could need, e.g. even a sewing kit. Chris gave us a really warm welcome, thoroughly explained everything, including the brand new outdoor hot tub which is great. We also used the gym, which has all you need. The local area is very attractive and in our short visit we did a walk - the views are stunning and there's loads of potential walks - the welcome folder even has several copies of each walking route map the owners have produced, so you can take one with you. This is truly benchmark quality and we plan to be back!

Very pleased with the choice of this property. Poor weather prohibited access to closest beach but there was plenty of alternatives. Would recommend.

“Amazing attention to detail”
Reviewed December 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My wife daughter and I stayed for two nights at Swallows next in the second week of December.

I have to say that we loved Swallows Nest. the attention to detail and all the little small touches just made a very nice cottage amazing.

The place was impeccably clean well though out with everything you would need from a self catering accommodation.

The heated indoor pool was the icing on the cake, very clean with lots of pool toys for the family to play with.

I definitely would like to go back may be in the summer as well, hopefully it will not be fully booked by then.

“Swallows Nest! Great place to stay!”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in Swallows nest for a few very enjoyable days.
The cottage is lovely with a super king very comfortable bed, underfloor heating in bathroom and a jacuzzi bath, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and comfy lounge. We loved the swimming pool, which we had to ourselves each day. There is lots of nice walks just across from the accommodation too, including down to the beach following a lovely stream.
Hastings is a few minutes drive and has a shopping centre but also has lots of smaller shops in the old town. We also visited Rye which has narrow streets with some lovely quaint shops and antique shops.
The owners were very welcoming and friendly and were on hand if we needed any help or advice. Our many thanks to them for our welcome pack of goodies and fresh flowers.

“We'll be back!”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A lovely well-equipped cottage with real attention to detail which made it feel like a home away from home. Hopefully next time we visit the weather will be better and we will be able to take advantage of the recommended walks through local beauty spots. However despite the fact it rained every day, we had a fantastic week which is testament to the fab facilities - in particular the pool! Hope to return soon!

“Great Attention to detail!”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

the whole process of check in was easy, as the keys are left in a safe box outside the front door which meant i didnt have to ring around for the owner to come and let me in.

the instructions in the guest book was very clear on how to use appliances etc. the WIFI signal was excellent (this was important to me as I needed to keep in touch with elderly family members at home).

the property was immaculately clean, and well decorated, and loved the little muffin hamper. also loved the fact that there was enough supply of tea, coffee, milk and sugar for the duration of the stay.

the swimming pool was an amazing addition to the holiday, and loved the full access at any time day or night.

the owner was very friendly and approachable, and was only too happy to help with any queries.

the only niggle we had was the bed was super soft (perhaps the mattress topper?) and also the pillows, as i am used to firm mattress, BUT we could live with it.
