Lovely quite location had a relaxing weekend. Lovely views from the old dairy. Kitchen table a bit big for 2 people could get away with something smaller. Overall well equipped, sofa not very comfortable but OK. Bedroom plenty big enough with comfy bed. Garden could do with a bit of colour needs tlc. Fox came into Garden just after dark so beware if you have dogs,lucky ours were fast asleep after their evening walks. Pity we didn't get to meet the owners. Would definitely recommend a stay at this cottage.

A pleasant week away, lucky with the weather, saw East Sussex at its best. The location is ok but beware if you aren’t that mobile as the property is situated off of a relatively steep hill and it’s a good 20 minute walk into town. Although the property is on one level, the concrete area outside is not so is not wheelchair friendly, nor small old dog friendly either for that matter. The old dairy is comfortable enough with just about enough equipment for a week long stay. The sofa is rather old and tired and the bed could be bigger as the bedroom is quite large. Biggest bugbear was the flies. As it was hot, we kept the main patio door and bedroom window open (only one as the other wouldn’t open) which meant that it was open house for the local (noisy) fly population. A couple of fly screens would have easily and cheaply sorted this issue out. The only other issue my wife had was that the bathroom door didn’t lock. Out and about, Battle is okay, not a lot there and the road through the town can get very busy. There are plenty of places to visit that aren’t too far away and the White Hart pub up the road and the Bull Inn in town are worth a visit.
