“Simply perfect”
Reviewed November 20, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

It was a perfect holiday home. Exactly what we were looking for. Very relaxing and cozy. We went with our 6 month old baby who seemed to enjoy the place as it was very homely and warm. The welcome pack was amazing. We would definitely come back for another relaxing weekend. :)

“Quiet and Comfy”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I was on a course while staying here so didn't see much of the area but the cottage was warm and comfy and it was so peaceful. The welcome pack was a great touch, bread, milk butter, biscuits, marmalade and more. All in all a great stay

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We only stayed a few days in The Oast, but enjoyed it very much. Our host was very friendly and welcomed us with bread, fruit, milk and nice flowers in the rooms. We took a walk through the fields, met the cows and found a beautiful landscape. We visited the Airshow at Eastbourne and saw the Red Arrows fly by, fantastic!
Although the 2nd bedroom is a bit small, the cottage itself has everything for a very nice stay!

What a fantastic place, ideally situated, very comfortable and with friendly, generous owners, Daphne and Terry who could not be more unobtrusive! We certainly intend to return.

My wife and I stayed at The Oast last summer and enjoyed it so much we booked again. It's just as quiet, comfortable and beautiful as we remembered. The Oast is well appointed, the farm is beautiful and sympathetically managed, the owners are pleasant and helpful, and the location is perfect for visiting the many local attractions.

Highlights: walking the South Downs Way; Sheffield Park; Great Dixter; Scotney Castle; Hever Castle - and the Weald in which The Oast nestles.

“Wonderful Peaceful Holiday”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is our second visit and we love staying at The Oast House. It's on a beautiful East Sussex farm with lots of places to walk and explore by car. The hosts couldn't be nicer or more welcoming. The house itself is very comfortable with a wonderful kitchen to cook in. We certainly plan to come back. Such a great holiday from city life! And a chance to explore a truly beautiful part of England.

“Great for a weekend escape”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at the Oust for a weekend whilst in East Sussex for a wedding.

The property is advertised to sleep 4 people and the main bedroom is a very good size with comfortable bed. The 2nd bedroom however is very cramped, just enough space for 2 single beds really.
The bathroom is fine (good power shower) and the kitchen was pretty well equipped. There are a few nice touches like a welcome food basket with bread, eggs & milk which was useful. The Oust also has a self-contained garden with BBQ which whilst we didn't make use of would be good for a longer stay.
