This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This cosy cottage has a sunny lawned garden ideal for al fresco dining, and is a perfect location for exploring both the coast and country of Kent and Sussex.

This cosy detached holiday cottage is in a rural location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful counties of Kent and Sussex, including ’1066 country’, and combines the coast and the countryside. The cottage benefits from open-plan accommodation and a sunny lawned garden. Situated within the owners’ grounds and close to the village of Robertsbridge on the River Rother, with its atmospheric pubs and black and white medieval timber framed houses.
Robertsbridge is well known with cricket enthusiast’s as the home to the cricket bat makers Gray-Nicolls, established in 1876, and who still grow their own willow locally for the cricket bats. Visit the factory for an insight into the process of cricket bat making (tours are pre-booked). Take a trip on the Kent and East Sussex Steam Railway which chugs through 10½ miles of glorious countryside from Tenterden, ’The Jewel of the Weald’, to Bodiam, with its fairytale moated castle which is well worth visiting. Spend a day at Battle Abbey and the famous battle field, the re-enactment of the battle of Hastings takes place each October. Take a guided tour of the local vineyards including Carr Taylor and Sedlescombe, which produce some award-winning wines. Hire bikes and cycle around Bewl Water or take out a fishing boat for trout and pike fishing (at cost, licence required). The coast at Hastings with its beach launched fishing fleet and iconic net huts is approximately 10 miles away. Good rail links to London from Robertsbridge offer further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 8.5 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Would have been good to know about metered electricity in advance as we had no cash when lights went out! Oven v dirty

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry you felt the Cart Lodge was not clean; my cleaner cleans the property after every visit and leaves the oven soaking while cleaning upstairs. It does say in the property description that there will be a set amount of electricity included, which is very rarely used up, and that there is a meter, which takes coins. I am usually around when visitors arrive and explain everything and say if there are any problems to knock on my door at any time. This is the first time in nearly three years that someone has found the property so unacceptable.

    Very well equipped, comfortable and in a quiet location yet just off the A21, so very handy for travelling anywhere.

    Not bad, but if you have a washing machine, you need a t,dryer, heating needs to be included in price.

    The accommodation was clean and very comfortable, everything you could possibly need. We had wonderful weather so could go out every day plenty of places to visit and the dogs had lots of walks. The owner Poppy was lovely helpful and friendly and supplied a lovely cake on arrival would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    We went for a relaxing weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. The cottage was fantastic and service from the owner superb ...down to the beautiful lemon drizzle cake on arrival. Highly recommended.

    Spacious and bright interior with all you need for a basic few days away. Shame the A21 is so close and noisy but walk in opposite direction and the quieter it gets.
