Little Orchard is located next to the owners' family home and is set in around 13 acres of gardens and paddocks with equestrian stabling for the owners' horses.  This superb 3 bedroom conversion is all on one level and has been styled to the highest standards with great attention to the smallest detail.  It has been converted using solar panels which provide electric heating and there is also a wood burning stove in the sitting room.  There are French doors opening onto a terraced area with fantastic views across the adjoining fields and woodland with direct access to the forestry commission land, making it ideal for keen walkers.  There are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a spacious well-equipped kitchen with the dining table at its heart - the perfect place for family meals or just catching up over a cup of tea or a chilled glass of wine.  The local area around the property is full of good country pubs and places to eat.  Staplecross is a pretty village with many period houses, nearby Bodiam has the wonderful castle ruins and Seddlescombe boasts its own organic vineyard which you can walk to via woodland footpaths.  Great Dixter House and Gardens is in Northiam and makes a great day out at any time of the year and further afield there is Hawkhurst with fishing lakes and a golf course, Tenterden with cafes, restaurants and a nostalgic steam railway.  Battle, Hastings and Rye are also on your doorstep as are the golden sands at Camber.  Little Orchard is situated right on the Sussex/Kent border, making this the perfect holiday property for families or couples looking for either a fun filled holiday or a relaxing break in the countryside.   Shop: 1.4 miles   Pub:  1.2 miles   Coast: 8 miles

We had a wonderful stay at Little Orchard. The house is beautifully decorated and is so clean. We loved using the garden and it was such a treat to see the beautiful horses. Thank you for the basket of goodies - what an unexpected, brilliant treat! Our 4-legged pals, Bailey and Norman also had the best time. The forest at the back of the property is pure bliss. Thank you.

The Talbot family,

First week away since lockdown - and what a treat it was. Our first trip to a pub and a restaurant too in 4 month. What a lovely area for it. We enjoyed lovely walks in teh woods & trips to Sissinghurst & Battle and we made good use of the BBQ! And of course the local vineyards. Hope your business continues to pick up after lockdown & thanks for a lovely stay.

Alex, Gill, L,

We absolutely loved our stay at Little Orchard! The cottage is beautiful and a perfect place to relax. We visited Bodiam, Rye, Battle and Old Hastings, walked in the woods & visited the beach at Camber Sands & Winchelsea. Had a great meal at The Queen's Head in Seddlescombe, fabulous fish and chips at Maggie's in Old Hastings & got a great selection of food for the BBQ from Buster's Farm Shop. Thank you Dan and Lindsay for the wonderful welcome basket - Tommy enjoyed his too! We will definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends.

Previous Customer,

We've had a lovely week here. Our young granddaughter thought it was all amazing, at 'the holiday house'. Lovely weather. Camber Sands at 9am was great, but was getting very busy later in the morning as we left!! Great produce from Browns Farm Shop and Buster's Farm Shop. Bodiam Castle is worth a visit - you need to book at present. Thank you very much. P.S. The sparkling wine from the local vineyard is great!!

The T,

We have had a lovely time here in Little Orchard. The accommodation is excellent, clean and fresh. We have felt very at home here. It has been a great base to stay in, allowing us visits to Rye, Bexhill and Bodiam Castle. We had mixed weather but we expected it for this time of year. We loved coming back and putting on the log burner. We would have loved to attend the fireworks on Saturday but the rain kept us away. We had 2 lovely meals at The Squirrels Inn near Battle on Saturday evening and a carvery Sunday lunchtime. We hope to return to the area and will definitely look to book this accommodation again.

Previous Customer,

Exceptional property, home from home. Extremely high standard of cleanliness and furnishings. We had an enjoyable family holiday, and the dog came too! Great woodland walks from the door, although the weather was too wet to attempt it, but it did not spoil our break. Easy to use website to book accommodation, with loads of information and true photographs. Would both use this company again and definitely return to this property.

Mrs Annette T,

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Beautiful decor throughout with everything you could ever need. The welcome hamper was the best we have ever received - thank you again for a wonderful holiday

Mrs S H,

Wow, what a stunning home Little Orchard is. Beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The welcome basket was the best we have ever had. We were expecting a forecasted week of rain but the weather was surprisingly good. We visited Eastbourne, Rye, Battle, Herstmonceux Castle and Hastings - the old town is lovely with lots of cobbled streets with little roads and interesting shops and boutiques. Loved watching the girls ride the horses every day. Thank you once again for a lovely stay.

Previous Customer,
