    A beautiful cottage. Love that it was dog friendly. Thank you for the supplies you left for us. Milk, wine, tea bags. Dog treats. So lovely. Everywhere was clean and fresh. Just needed a larger bath towel!! For me not the dog!!

    Lovely cottage full of everything you will need. The enclosed garden was great for our dog. Lovely view from the kitchen but it's a shame the hedge blocks the light and view from the lounge. Bit tricky with the sloping roof as one of us is 6ft 3, however this was disclosed in the description and we managed. Location very pretty with sheep in the adjacent field. Didn't use the pub down the road but plenty of others within short drive that take dogs. Lovely big bathroom with super shower. Overall very nice accommodation.

    Ideally situated cottage with all the inbuilt amenities one needs to enjoy a break in a lovely area of East Sussex. This enabled my wife and I to have a relaxing short break rediscovering an area which we had passed through on many occasions earlier on in our lives. One can be assured of a restful break in a peaceful location.

    A lovely place to relax and unwind. Everything you would need has been supplied by the owners including a welcoming bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. The dog was also well catered for with treats, dog bowls and poo bags all provided. A short walk to the local pub where we received a warm welcome from the landlord and the lovely staff. Dogs are most welcome and the food is great. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place to anyone.
