Cricket Cottage is a glorious, beamed period house set right in the heart of picturesque Robertsbridge. Its name makes reference to the Gray Nicolls factory in Robertsbridge which has been making cricket bats since 1876. The Grade II listed cottage, sleeping 6/7, is the perfect place to enjoy a family holiday. It has recently been updated to a high standard with comfortable and stylish furnishings, providing accommodation full of character with all the comforts of modern living. One of the two sitting rooms has a beautiful, working inglenook fireplace, ideal for curling up in front of after a busy day out. The kitchen has everything you need but if you would like someone else to do the cooking, it is only a short walk to the village with its artisan bakery, cafe and fantastic pubs. There are lots of rural walks right from your doorstep and it is only a short drive to historic Battle with its famous battlefield and abbey. There is easy access by road and rail to the seaside town of Hastings, the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and there are direct trains to London from the village station. Robertsbridge is a member of the Sussex Bonfire Society which is responsible for a series of bonfire festivals and will definitely help November go off with a spectacular bang!

We had a very pleasant stay. Nice to be so close to the village, with bakery and (small) supermarketMr Marco Tijnagel - 26th July 2016
Lovely house in a great locationWe wanted a holiday cottage near Battle so that my 82 year-old mother could re-visit her old school and childhood haunts, and this lovely house in Robertsbridge was the perfect base for three generations of our family for a week. The house is extremely well-equipped, especially the kitchen, and beautifully clean and welcoming. At least four National Trust properties are within easy reach, as is Hastings and we really enjoyed the Jerwood Gallery, Sissinghurst, Batemans and Bodiam Castle. Robertsbridge is a very nice village with everything in walking distance including a shop at the end of the lane which never seemed to shut, also a good pub and bakery. We all loved our week here and the house is one of the nicest holiday properties I've stayed in.Leanda Shrimpton - 15th April 2016
Beautifully furnished Cottage in stunning village location: RobertsbridgeIf you're looking for a warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished home from home, this 7 bed cottage is a real delight. We were attracted to this cottage by its village location, its location in relation to the Sussex coast and the fantastic log fire in the main reception room. We weren't disappointed. The kitchen was very well equipped. The owners had put a lovely hamper of local produce together to make our first cuppa and breakfast the next day rather delicious. The beds were a dream to sleep in too. The property has a reasonably sized garden although we didn't spend much time outside. The village has a convenience store at the end of the lane. Its close to Bodiam, Mad Jack Fullers follies, the Jerwood Gallery and Old town at Hastings. We even enjoyed a day out in Brighton's North Lanes. If you're one for pubs, there's two in Robertsbridge both selling Harveys. And if you like a browse around some classier than average Charity Shops, there plenty to satisfy in Battle and Heathfield. A great week in a great place. We'll be back soon.Jill Kent - 20th February 2016
Perfekte Unterkunft für Familien - Perfect accommodation for familiesWe spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful house. Even though we got to eight (with four small children in our luggage), we were never too tight in the Cricket Cottage. The house is perfectly equipped, with everything you would want for a relaxing stay. Sophie and Ian were always reachable and took care of small problems immediately (Internet, not their fault). One notices the tasteful and high-quality furnishing to the fact that the landlords have lived here for a long time. The not very small, enclosed garden was a favourite playground for our children. Robertsbridge is an ideal base from which to explore the 1066-country, with its train station, London is also within easy reach. A small but well-stocked Spar market is within two minutes walk, a very good Indian with take-away, which also offers good Fish'n'Chips, is also nearby. Not far away also nice pubs and a great children's playground. From the park situation in front of the house no one should be deterred, it is just a narrow alley. We have however with our fully loaded family carriages always found a parking lot a few meters further and think that the short footpath absolutely worthwhile. Conclusion: Especially for families absolutely recommendable!Stefanie Kramer - 16th January 2016
