A majestic, detached family home complete with an indoor heated swimming pool, The Orchard sits in an acre of land which includes a private paddock for outdoor pursuits. Sitting in a picturesque location in Northiam, adjacent to the last rolling meadow of East Sussex as it joins the Kent border, The Orchard is perfectly located for exploring the many treasures of Kent and East Sussex. There is a steam train just a few hundred yards away serving the Rother Valley with stops at Tenterden and Bodiam. Alternatively, Bodiam Castle can be visited by taking a gentle boat trip or, more traditionally, by car. The village features the Church of St Mary’s which dates back to 1090, and the Great Dixter Tudor House and Gardens are just 0.25 miles away. There are many places to explore including Hawkhurst, Sandhurst, Beckley and a little further afield are Hastings, Tenterden and Camber Sands.

    The Orchard is a lovely family home we had a great time there, as I said it is a family home and it is also a large old building so please don't expect hotel conditions it got charm it rough around the edges. The pool is great fun we had the luck of the weather and spent most of the weekend laying on the grass and dipping in and out of the pool.

    Whilst we enjoyed our holiday the house was very tatty. It needs some TLC and light bulbs

    The property is pretty “tired” and could do with a good clean & refurb. The pool was very cloudy and had to be “shock treated”, this resulted in several of us having sore eyes and coughs. There were many frustrations such as the fridge/freezer’s ice maker & chilled water being disconnected, the CD player not working, the shower in the pool area disconnected etc. There were two vents around the pool which, in September, allowed too much cold air to be blown in, making sitting by the pool unpleasant. The oven didn’t work properly and a lot of the kitchen equipment in poor condition. Overall it was disappointing as, without too much effort & expense, it could be made into a really nice holiday property. The moral is - read the reviews before booking!!

    We spent the first three hours cleaning. Every kitchen handle was sticky and seemed to have had grease on them forever. We did not use any utensils as the overall cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. We did not use the bbq as have seen better in skips and no way could it be used for food. The pool was the one area that was good. Would love to know what other people found regarding cleanliness?? Does the owner ever look at the place as for cleaners going in for what!!!!

    We were disappointed with the overall cleanliness and general condition of the property. The whole house needs updating and repairing in some places. The landing carpet doesn't reach the walls and comes up in one of the bedroom doorways. There are cobwebs throughout and the whole house needs a deep clean. During our stay there was a distinct smell of dogs in the lounge (we did not bring any pets) and one of our party is allergic to dogs. If you are going to allow pets to stay at the property then it should be thoroughly cleaned afterwards. There were broken tiles in one bathroom and black mould in another. One bedroom window had no curtain. For some unknown reason all the door handles were only held on by two screws (rather than 6). The kitchen felt sticky and needed cleaning before we used it.

    Stayed at the Orchard for 2 nights. Had a nice feel to it, beds were comfortable. Pool was great. Quiet and relaxing location. My only gripe, as many have commented, is the oven. Not efficient at all, especially when you want to cook for a large gathering. Would return though.
