Everything was excellent. Mrs Victoria Gorin - 18th February 2018
A delightful cottage. Very warm and cosy. Cranbrook is a lovely small town with lots of private shops. The George is great for Sunday lunch. Several nice coffee shops. Hartleys Farm shop nearby has a really good fishmongers.Mrs Shelagh Tee - 27th December 2017
Lovely ambiance, so quaint and cosy. Lots of provisions left for us and flowers made us feel welcome. Mrs L Davidson - 25th September 2017
Nice cottage with lots of useful things thoughtfully provided. Found the garden after opening the other gate (firstly to be nosey). Windmill was open and working on our first day so it was good to do something very local without having to use the car. Had a great week with lots of trips out, shopping and the pub, fish and chips and lots of short walks.Mr E Robson - 25th August 2017
The owners are very generous towards their guests, ie good quality bedding, plenty of hot water and towels, even plenty of toilet rolls, believe me this is not always the case. Also welcome pack of milk and bread with wine and beer. There were lots of dry goods in the larder which helps a those of us who travel by train. The owners are to be commended in every way.Ms Kathy McLaughlin - 21st August 2017
What a well appointed cottage, everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The well stocked larder is particularly appreciated by those of us who who didn't come by car. The George is good for a meal and a drink. Would definitely recommend.Ms K McLaughlin. - 18th August 2017
Thank you for a brilliant week in this gorgeous cottage. Our girls (5 and 7) loved the cosy room on the top floor. The house was an excellent base for our trips to Sissinghurst, Rye and our friend's house in Winchelsea as well as a wonderful place to relax in the evenings.Mr M Enzensberger - 28th July 2017
Before going back home to Denmark we would like to thank you for a lovely week here in Wisteria Cottage. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for all the goodies, very helpful when arriving late in the afternoon with two children. The garden is wonderful.Mr Ornbjerg - 21st July 2017
We have had a wonderful week in Wisteria Cottage. The house is lovely and very comfortable.Mr R Enright - 14th July 2017
Thank you for the welcome treats. Wisteria Cottage is beautifully renovated and decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday week. I especially liked the lovely written labels on the closet doors and for the TV, what a lovely idea. We had a wonderful week here.Mr B Fleischmann - 7th July 2017
Thank you for the lovely welcome treats and for such a well equipped and delightful cottage and garden. We really enjoyed discovering Cranbrook and the surrounding area, chatting to the friendly neighbours. A real treat all round.Mr P Winterbottom - 30th June 2017
A comfortable, well equipped cottage with a pretty secret garden off of the back pathway. It was easy to use the free car park just down the hill. Cranbrook has an interesting museum and a smock mill which are both worth visiting. It is also an excellent location for visiting the many Gardens, NT properties, coast, villages and rural countryside.Mrs Linda Edwards - 29th June 2017
A lovely comfortable and cosy cottage, equipped with all we required and more. Thank you for all the goodies, they were very welcome. Discovering the pretty garden around the back was a surprise and the neighbours are all very friendly. We were blessed with the heatwave week and enjoyed the many beautiful gardens and NT places which are abundant in this area. The vision Mill is very interesting and worth a visit, also the Cranbrook museum. Thanks again.Mrs L Edwards - 23rd June 2017
Wisteria Cottage is an excellent base for a holiday, comfortable and very well equipped. The lovely garden is a bonus. Thank you for the welcome pack, after a long journey a drink was much appreciated.Mrs M Szymokowiak - 26th May 2017
Lovely little cottage and will come again one day. Thank you.Mr A Wood - 23rd April 2017
Very generously supplied with more than the basic items one would expect.Mr Mike Frowen - 16th April 2017
We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. We appreciated the small attentions of the owners, the equipment, the comfort and the localisation. The neighbourhood was very quiet and relaxing. Miss S Vandreck - 8th April 2017
