• About The Orchard

    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.

    We had a fantastic time at The Orchard. The house had all the essentials for a holiday home, and a few extra. The pool was amazing and most of the day was spent there. The patio area was nice and big - there were 10 adults and one child so plenty of room for us all, though not keen on the 2 large round tables with benches to sit on, as we liked to eat all round same table - which you can easily do in the dinning room inside. We also brought our own loungers and deck chairs for our comfort. Overall the week we spent here was perfect for us - football and frizbee in the paddock, badminton in the garden and a fabulous pool. Local shop and park in the village was useful too and Hastings was 25 mins away. We would definitely be telling our family and friends about The Orchard and we would return again ourselves. Great Place!!

    We have styed here many times before, the last time being about four years ago. Sadly, nothing has changed in those four years, which means there has been no redecoration/updating in all that time so the place is now looking tired and unloved - wallpaper coming off the walls, carpet burns in the dining room, soft furnishings old and in need of replacement. The hi-fi in the lounge has been broken by a previous tenant and not repaired, replaced with a basic docking station so no music in the [pool as used to happen. Parts of the kitchen are in need of replacement after what looks like a water leak, with kick plates not refitted properly. The sleigh bed in the master bedroom seriously creaks every time you turn over - regardless of weight - we tried with one of our lightest children through to a full size adult. The towel rail in the pool has stopped working, as have the pool lights around the edge of the pool and two spotlights in the ceiling The cleaning was poor. Smears down the fronts of kitchen units from previous customers, not from the lack of drying but from the lack of proper cleaning. We dropped something on arrival and had to use the hoover - which we found was 'rammed full' of dog hair, so tightly compacted that we had to use various utilities to get the dog hair out in order to make the hoover suck up! The cleaner emptying this is not too much to ask. We knew there were no towels with the property but we found no soap, or even a small hand towel by the sinks - which when you arrive and need the loo isn't the greatest. There wasn't even a set of oven gloves, so we had to use a tea towel. Overall we had a good time BUT when you're paying the price for a 'luxury' house we think it's fair to expect things to be of a good state of repair with a few basics available on arrival. If it gets updated, the maintenance improves and gets a bit of TLC again it will be worth it.

    The Cottage is stunning with lovely period features. We really loved the pool that could be used at any time of the day. So much in the area to see and do. Would be happy to stay there again.

    Brilliant setting for all age groups. The pool was a huge success from kids to kids at heart. Would definitely return..excellent contact with owners and family..could do with a bit more fridge/ freezer space though as we preprepared our food.

    We had a wonderful Christmas week with the whole family. The pool was obviously a big draw and fabulous but the house itself was truly great and the owners most helpful. We would certainly te-book.

    Lovely house totally enjoyed the lovely warm pool which made our break and the beautiful open fire. Although is sleeps 13 there is no where for you all to sit down at eat at same time. Dishwasher didn't appear to be washing and the people before is put stuff back dirty so we had to wash everything before using. But it wouldn't stop us returning it was lovely thank you.

    The pool was a great success for children and adults alike, but the water on the sides did not drain away properly so could be slippery. The furnishings were comfortable and the house well equipped but would have enjoyed it more without the uninvited guests, mice, both down stairs and up stairs. The house and grounds to me could do with some TLC.
