Cottage fully equipped and homely. The extensive garden was beautiful to relax in. Good base for Hastings Rye and Dungeness. Mrs Dee (August 2020)
The owner had left a very good list of details on how everything worked in the house, places and things to see and do and pubs and cafes to eat out. The whole week was extremely relaxing, surrounded by woodland, wildlife and quiet. And the fact that the cottage is painted blue made it easy to find when we arrived! Mrs Valentine (July 2020)
Fell in love with the peacefulness as soon as I arrived. Two little niggles: no dishes with lids to microwave food; water heater switches off at 08.30 am which I didn’t discover immediately - thought the husband had used all the water! Far too early for holiday-makers! After a few days of lukewarm showers and boiling up kettles to wash up I found the controls in a wardrobe in a room we weren’t using. Turns out it’s a combi-boiler, so no reason why hot water can’t be left on continuously. I hope the owner will take note. He asks renters not to alter the controls, but I can see why they do! But a lovely place to stay, with a delightful rose garden which sadly we were locked out of - it would’ve been nice to sit in it at the end of the day. Garden full of birds, middle of a wood, a short drive to nature reserves on the salt marshes, good restaurants and pubs, interesting places and small towns to visit - what more can one want. Oh the dog loved it too. Hope to go back next year. Mrs West (September 2019)
Dirty windowsills in kitchen full of insects. Mismatching broken crockery, no wine glasses. Feedback not acted upon from a previous guest who had commented on all the above in the house book in June. Not good enough for £1025. Such a shame as it is a beautiful location. Mrs Sayer (August 2019)
Lovely cottage in idyllic surroundings - a perfect getaway yet still close to Rye and surrounding countryside. Had a wonderful time! Mrs Watts (June 2019)
We're experienced travellers, we accept that 'things happen ' and a couple of minor problems were quickly resolved by owner Tim, but the quality of the beds (except one single) was not good and the t.v.. reception poor. Thankfully the wi.fi. was excellent though so we survived(!). and all in all it was easy to accept the few short-comings and we enjoyed a wonderful week. Mr Alanskas (March 2019)
Especially the garden was a great pleasure to us. Only the road to the house was a complete desaster, full of pot holes and not at all convenient for normal vehicles, so that we decided to leave the car about 200 yards before the house, where the proper road ends, except for loading the luggage. Mr Bushe told us that he is in negotiations with the community to get it fixed. Mrs Schroeder (July 2018)
The garden is huge, but just a note for dog owners, it is not enclosed. Mrs Wilkins (July 2018)
Set in magical woodland (advise guests to take wellies to have a good ramble even if it has been raining) with a lovely garden, the cottage comes into its own on a sunny day when you can enjoy a meal in the garden, or a quiet coffee sitting on a bench watching the comings and goings of birds, pheasants, squirrels and rabbits. Accommodation is homely and has all that you need, but could possibly do with a little updating. As our dog came with us, it would have been better if the garden were properly enclosed. She had to be tethered as she is prone to go exploring! The pot holes down the lane are really bad... but we knew that in advance from other reviews. Mrs Goddard (May 2018)
There were just a couple of issues with the property - we could not use the front door as it was locked, although when I phoned the owner he said that this was not possible...perhaps it was our mistake but I have never been unable to open a Yale lock from the inside of a house before. We used the French doors to get in and out, which made shoe changing a bit of a challenge. The layout was a bit strange with the two bathrooms opening directly into the sitting room. Both of the bathrooms had translucent blinds on the glass doors, so silhouettes of people were clearly visible from the sitting room! Perhaps some blackout blinds or solid doors would be a good idea. These were in the end relatively minor problems and overall we had a good stay. Jempsons supermarket was fabulous, as were a couple of forays into the woods. Mrs Jenkins (December 2017)
Ideal quiet location ,unmade road a few large pot holes but it is in the woods so just beware and don't take the sports car . Mr Rayner (November 2017)
A really cosy cottage in a beautiful location! Would highly recommend this cottage to nature lovers, walkers and dog owners. Ms Asby (April 2017)
Would highly recommend this cottage to nature lovers, walkers and dog owners. Ms Asby (April 2017)
Beautiful location in the woods just be aware of the precarious pot hole track to get to the cottage Mrs Marriner (March 2017)
Excellent cottage very deceptive from the outside, got everything you need and the garden is just a bird paradise. Great kitchen, 2 lounges the garden lounge opens out to the patio area, 2 bathrooms is great one with a bath other with a shower Relaxing stay and lovely and warm on cold November nights it was -2 and we where still cosy. The only negative point is the unmade road to the cottage it will test your suspension filling in the pot holes would make all the difference . Would book again as we had a excellent stay Mr Warden from Farnborough (November 2016)
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings with lots of walks straight from the door. Lots of wildlife in the garden. Owners very helpful Mrs Powroznyk from Leicester (October 2016)
IN THE INFO THERE DESCIBED A SHOWER ROOM WHICH WAS ACTUALLY A SHOWER CUBICLE. THIS WAS UNSUITABLE FOR A DISABLED PERSON WHICH OUR ADULT SON IS AND A SHOWER ROOM TO OUR THINKING IS ONE YOU COULD WALK INTO AND PERHAPS BE SEATED. HAVING SAID THIS WE MET MR BUSHE AND HE WAS VERY HELPFULL GETING OUR SON ON TO THE WEB AND THE COTTAGE IS SITUATED IN A GREAT PLACE. WE HAD TO ABANDON OUR STAY HALF WAY THRO THE WEEK DUE MY WIFES ILLNESS AND MRS BUSHE WAS VERY KIND WITH HER THOUGHTS TO US ON THAT PROBLEM. WE HAVE SAID WE WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN PURELY BECAUASE OF THE SHOWER (which I can add would be most suitable for an able person) Mr Page from Worthing (October 2016)
We enjoyed a relaxing week in this spacious and comfortable bungalow in peaceful surroundings, with a large garden full of wildlife and woodland walks nearby. Mrs Neale from Binningen (July 2016)
Great location, very peaceful with just birds and animals for company. Close to some lovely beaches and other attractions, though best walks just from the doorstep. We would like to return in Autumn. Mrs Powroznyk from Leicester (June 2016)
It was a particularly peaceful and pretty location just on the edge of Bixley wood. Enjoyed the garden being visited by several rabbits and squirrels. Mrs Corbett from Ixworth (March 2016)
The location was lovely and the cottage was spacious with a great secluded garden. There was easy access to Rye and the surrounding attractions. This was a very nice cottage to stay in. Mr Water from Ipswich (May 2015)
The setting in the woods was wonderful as also was the view into the garden. The dog loved watching the rabbits! The cottage had a very convenient layout with a straight walk through from one end to the other. The deck area was a sun trap and the kitchen was roomy and nice to use. Mr Bennett from Holt (April 2015)
Brilliant setting and surroundings especially for our grandchildren. Plenty for them to do, exploring and able to enjoy the freedom of a child friendly garden. Mrs Gamble from Caddington (August 2014)
