First time visit to East Sussex/Kent. Very impressed with the area and especially Rye. Very pretty.

Christopher S,

The cottage was furnished to a very homely finish, and we just loved everything about it.

Mrs Nicola M,

It was a lovely cottage, with quirky features, lots of stairs, plenty of space for the two of us and nicely decorated. nice to have a small dishwasher. Parking was challenging and the steep stairs are steep!!

Mrs Karen E,
