“A special place run by special people”
Reviewed February 15, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Pickle Cottage twice and each time was wonderful. Guy and Clare are very responsive in their emails prior to the visit and very helpful. The place is of a simple elegance and full of rural charm - just as the surroundings -, we just love it!
There's everything you need for self-catering, the wood burner is wonderful and easy to start, the main room is airy. And when there's gale force winds, you just feel soooo cosy inside!
Also, and that's what makes the place and their owners so nice and so special, is that if you're ask nicely, you could even bring your dog, provided it's very well behaved, i.e. he doesn't jump on the sofa or in the nearby pond (!), and provided he doesn't chase ducks nor pheasants!
Will we go back again? Ooooh yes!

“Perfect get away, we didn't want to leave”
Reviewed January 26, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Prior to our stay I sent a couple of emails to Guy and Clare, who answered our questions immediately. Comprehensive directions were also sent in good time to ensure distribution to all those travelling. Pickle cottage did not fail us on any level. Whilst the weather was not at it's best, Pickle cottage was. Set in the grounds of an oust house, recently renovated and surrounded by a charming garden, the cottage was true to the photos online but the feel, atmosphere and warm greeting we received far exceeded our expectations. We would all highly recommend a stay here, and a walk with K8

“Wonderful cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Pickle Cottage. It is a lovely cottage which has everything one might want in a holiday home. Everything we needed was there, the rooms are delightful and are tastefully decorated. Parking was extremely easy and the location is so pleasant. It is very quiet yet you can get everywhere fast. We found the directions very helpful and had no trouble at all finding the cottage. Clare and Guy were very friendly and helpful.

Tenterden is an ideal location for exploring Kent and East Sussex. There is so much to do and see, we could have easily filled another week. If you enjoy visiting gardens go and see Hole Park, it is a truly wonderful place.

We hope to return to Pickle Cottage and can truly recommend it!

“Met all our criteria and made our stay so very pleasant.”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The owner dealt with any concerns or questions and insisted that we knock on his door if necessary. The layout was ideal for my daughter who is disabled.

Our privacy was respected which is so very important to us all. We are considering returning next year as Tenterden is one of our favourite places.

We felt that the directions need to be clarified as it was not easy to find the correct road. Perhaps some distances would be helpful and look at road names.

“Could not be better!”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Excellent property - description does not do it justice. Wanted for nothing - so well equipped and comfortable. Guy and Clare excellent hosts, carefully supervised by Katie, the most friendly dog you will ever come across. Ideal rural setting yet only 2 mins from Tenterden and 1.5 minutes from a great farm shop (Gibbet Oak - turn right out of gate) with delicious frozen home-cooked ready meals. Good centre for touring - lots of attractions on the doorstep. Will definitely be returning.

“Great find !”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Really nicely converted pig sty to give a homely modern welcome. all the facilities in the overview are not exaggerated ....so difficult to add more details..recent conversion. Excellent location to explore the garden of Kent
Worth a note ...Double room has a memory foam mattress which gives good support.. I found initially it may take a little getting used to if you are not used to them...but worth the try... perseverance! Sure to be back another year. Big family space!!

“Beautiful barn in a lovely peaceful setting.”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful stay in pickle cottage with our elderly mum. The barn is converted beautifully with all you need for a comfortable stay.
The setting of the barn & it's surroundings are picture perfect.
We all fell in love with Kate the owners dog.
Thank you to Clare & Guy for making us so welcome.
