Reviews

Oast House Cottage Review - 5 STAR We had an enjoyable stay in this spacious cottage. It has a quirky layout and plenty of space for 4. Lots of thoughtful touches made the stay comfortable and we felt welcome. Date of arrival - 25 October 2019

Previous Customer,

We've had a very good week and would love to come back. The house with the evening fires was wonderful. The walk to the Queen's Head is a plus. So much to see in this part of England, we didn't know. (Happily Roelof knew). Next time we hope to see more of the farm.

family from N,

Thank you for the lovely chocolate cake, eggs and flowers. We had a great week in this beautiful cottage

Johan and A,

What a lovely "home from home" from which to explore this interesting and beautiful part of the country. Our week has passed so quickly and we have appreciated the escape from London's heat and dust! Thanks to those mad hens for the most yellow of tasty yolks - and to Maura for a delicious chocolate cake - we have been really spoiled

Keith and J,

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage. We enjoyed our stay here very much. Breakfast in the sun, many sheep, many gardens, castles, and more impressions which we will take home.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your cottage. On arrival there was milk in the fridge, eggs in a bowl and chocolate cake. We've enjoyed the surroundings, scenery and the chickens checking in on us. Winchelsea is also worth a visit (incl. the beer garden at the inn)

Previous Customer,

We love the place, the views, the people, the dogs, the beach, the castles! Thank you

Belvilla @,

We had a wonderfully relaxing week. We love the area and particularly enjoyed our 20 minute stroll through sheep-filled fields to our dinner at the Queen. After visiting so many stunning gardens we are now looking forward to planting a bit of East Sussex in our gardens at home

Jen and I,

Time passes too fast. We really can't believe that the time is over already and we say thank you very much for your hospitality. We have enjoyed the cottage, farm and lovely views - we'll definitely come back to our 2nd home

Previous Customer,

Thoroughly enjoyable stay and the weather was good. Made friends with chickens and dogs as well as the owners. Beautiful gardens, lovely views and a most comfortable cottage. Thanks for the delicious chocolate cake, eggs and flowers.

Previous Customer,

When we first visited we had such a great time that we have returned for many a year. Sadly some of our party are no longer with us. It is a great place to stay, lovely views and away from the traffic. I came this year by myself and had a great time.

Past Customer,

So lucky to have found this hospitable haven. This is our fourth of many more visits hopefully.
