    We have enjoyed our stay in Russett Cottage and Rye. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday with max. 4 people (we were 3). Beautiful view on the fields around Rye and very nice walk from the cottage through the fields to Rye (45 minutes). My daughter used the bedroom upstairs and was comfortable with the little bit steep stairs. We had nice chats with the owner Lisa. So yes if we would travel again to Rye, we would for sure consider going back to Russett Cottage. There are 3 other cottages if you want to come with larger families.

    Tidy little cottage with a shower room , double bedroom , snug kitchen diner sitting room and a hayloft bedroom up a ladder staircase from the lounge . Good for couples , and families of 4 who tolerate each other well but not babies that crawl or pre-schoolers due to hazards of farm / water / bedroom in hayloft . On a farm so sheep and ponds and beautiful scenery Wifi is via a hotspot , the previous people ran the data out but it was back 2 days later. EE reaches the cottage , id mobile has no signal To be safe print off trip advisor restaurants near rye and download some films before you go I would book again my husband would not Owner was fine and smiley when we left . I think she is stressed , she only gets a bin collection every fortnight !

    Rye is beautiful, and the location of the cottage couldn't have been better. Unfortunately, the cottage itself is a different story... I called up to arrange for key collection as stated on the booking confirmation email and spoke to Lisa which sounded very polite and advised us not to get there before 4:00 o'clock, even though the confirmation email says 3:00 o'clock. When we arrived at the cottage, we were greeted and spoke briefly with the owner. As we entered the cottage, we found out that one of the bedrooms is actually combined with the kitchen with no dividing door. The stairs are not just steep, they are dangerously steep and my partner didn't feel comfortable walking down them. The only door separating this bedroom from the rest of the cottage was the kitchen door which had a broken latch and the only way we could have kept it closed is by putting something against it. The cottage was not built for 4 people in mind and it seems like the top bedroom was once a "storage loft" and is now a cramped bedroom. I guess you can house two adults and two children, but I would be scared of letting my children up and down the stairs. Having 2 couples in the cottage wasn't comfortable due to the lack of privacy - if someone wanted to use the kitchen or living room, whilst someone else is sleeping in the top bedroom, there is no door to separate the areas. It advertised that it comes with wifi, of which it did, the internet is on a "dongle" and it ran out 3 days in. We've decided not to bother the landlady and carry on with it. My partner, her parents and I decided to stick to it and not let it ruin our holiday. The holiday came to an end and we all packed up and got ready to leave. The landlady showed up the right second we were closing the cottage door, and said that she was just about to go in, which made us feel like she was watching us, waiting for us to leave, given that it was only 9:30 and check out was at 10:00?! We said our goodbyes and she went into the cottage, only to come out a minute later and in an insulting tone of voice, said that the state that we left the cottage was unacceptable and even went as far as stating that we have signed a contract that we should have left the cottage at as we found it. At that point, my partner and I asked questioned why this is the case and her answer was that we didn't put away the clothes airer and have left the crockery that we used that morning on the sink drainer after we washed them. She kept on insisting that we should have put everything away before we left and again threatening us about this contract. Not wanting to cause a fuss, I got out of the car and went back to the cottage. It took a full 2 minutes to put the plates and the airer away. During those 2 minutes, the landlady kept on complaining and saying that she has back problems and she has to tidy up the place all by herself. My partner also came back into the cottage and started confronting the landlady, at which point the landlady decided to leave without saying anything. We all got very offended by her attitude and the way she spoke down to us. It felt like, as the holiday was over and she got the money, it was all right to be rude to people. Overall, we wouldn't be going back to this cottage and neither would we recommend Lea Farm to anyone. You can get better cottages and avoid having to deal with an unprofessional and rude owner. Don't just take my word for it, have a look at previous ratings and you can pick out the similarities.

    We had a lovely, hot bank holiday, stay here. The cottage was clean and just the right size for 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) The upstairs bedroom would not be suitable for younger children as the staircase is very steep. The kitchen was suitably stocked with crockery, cutlery, pans etc. We took our dog and walked each morning across the fields at the back, there is a Public Footpath. Advisable to take or get a map of the local area as there isn't one there, but plenty of local "to do" leaflets. Rye is very near and worth a trip as is the Nature Reserve for a walk down to the beach. Winchelsea too, when the tide's out it's just a great stretch of sand (some places a little sinky!) We also visited Dungeness...there's a small steam train that can take you to Hythe, with stops along the way. A local Jempsons, a supermarket, open every day apart from Sunday. The farm itself was lovely and quiet, apart from the sound of toads , lambs and ducks...what more would you expect from a working farm? Plus lots of welcoming farm dogs. Have already recommended Russett Cottage to friends.

    My friend and I (with 2 dogs) had a very pleasant stay at Russett Cottage. We went over the Easter weekend when it was lambing season and it was adorable to see the babies just outside the window. The cottage is well equipped & clean, although the stairs are a little steep to mezzanine level (twin room) so not great for those with any mobility problems. The shower's water pressure was quite bad which was disappointing after looking forward to a hot wash after being outside in the cold which might make me a little reluctant to want to stay for more than a few nights but other than that, everything was fine. Situated 15 mins by car to Rye there are plenty of lovely pubs & tearooms and the wonderful Camber Sands beach is pretty close by for a refreshing morning walk. It's such a beautiful area and the people very friendly. I will definitely
