Iden Cottage is completely modernised and is very attractive. We have been back three times and hope to come again.Angela and Sean Taylor, Gloucestershire. - 29th September 2017
A very well-equipped cottage, with everything you could possibly need away from home. The welcome pack was much appreciated and a nice touch. Great location for antique shopping in Rye, Hastings, Appledore and Tenterden. Broomhill Sands, just along from Camber was a great beach for dog walks / runs off the lead. An enjoyable stay had by all. Sara, Andy & Minu the dog. - 22nd September 2017
A very nice cottage, cosy and well-equipped in a very attractive location. We have done walks on the coast, along the Canal, round Rye and on Dungeness. Also loads of National Trust and English Heritage to choose from : can recommend Smallhythe Barn, Scotney Castle, Batemans and further afield, Bodiam Castle. Also Battle Abbey. Apart from one day, we had brilliant weather. A memorable trip.David and Sheila (OAP’s). - 25th August 2017
Lovely cottage - nice size and with an incredible garden in a great location. Great weather, stunning part of the country and lots of wildlife.Liz, Will, baby Mathilda and Luna the dog. - 2nd June 2017
Iden Cottage is extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. This is obviously a private holiday home which we are allowed to borrow from time to time and so should not be compared with purely commercial lettings. The kitchen is very well laid-out and equipped with quality appliances - what a boon to have a dishwasher as well! The seating area has very wide windows and patio doors overlooking the rear garden. The garden is long with semi-wild borders and a meandering lawn (cut by visiting gardener) which has frequent visits from the local birds etc. The spacious bedroom is nicely furnished, again with better quality than normal furniture.This is an ideal spot for touring or just exploring the local coast-line. This area must be one of East Sussex's best kept secrets. There is a local Co-op for daily requirements; a pub/deli nearby and other amenities.We really enjoyed our first stay here and hope to be able to do so again in the future.Christine Cook - West Sussex - 18th May 2017
Very good week regrettably cut short but will look forward to a return visit. Well-equipped cottage.Christine and Bob, Chichester. - 12th May 2017
