    > This attractive detached house set in the owner’s grounds provide spacious holiday accommodation situated at the end of a mile-long lane in glorious rural surroundings. Pet friendly and offering a plethora of walks on the doorstep, the cottage offers good quality linen and towels and a superb self catering base. There is a public footpath leading off the owner’s drive providing miles of walks across open countryside. A trip to picturesque Rye enables visitors to sample local foods at the Wednesday morning farmers market which is held at Strand Quay. By taking a stroll along the cobbled streets, there is also the chance to buy a memento from one of the many independently-owned shops and boutiques, art galleries and potteries - or even start Christmas shopping from the wide selection of goods available! Also worth a visit are Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Camber Sands and Camber Castle – this area of saltmarsh protects some very special wildlife, and footpaths lead to four birdwatching hides. The picturesque market town of Battle makes for an enjoyable day out, as well as Hastings, the Sealife Centre and Pevensey Castle (where the Romans invaded). The area is also well known for its local vineyards including Chapel Down and Sedlescombe. A trip to Tenterden - often referred to as the Jewel of the Weald - is an alternative and, for garden lovers, Sissinghurst (National Trust) is not to be missed. Further National Trust places to visit include Smallhythe Place, Scotney Castle and Bodiam Castle. Day trips to France are possible with the Channel Tunnel a mere 30-minute drive. An excellent sky venue for astrology, photography, or just wishing on a star. Shops 1½ miles, pub 1 mile.

    This is a lovely house with lots of space and very well equipped throughout. Great kitchen, lots of bathrooms etc. The garden was totally dog proof - even for our very lively spaniel - which made a huge difference as she could sniff around and explore outside in total safety. Our only issue was that we hadn't realised prior to arrival that the property wasn't entirely suitable for an extremely fast moving toddler. It is open plan with quite a few stairs so someone had to be on suicide watch most of the time she was up and about which wasn't altogether relaxing. For slightly older children it was ideal. Lots of games, puzzles etc plus a dedicated games room with pool, bar footie plus table tennis in the garden. We would certainly revisit but not for a few years. Lots to do locally. We went to Great Dixter, Rye town and a lovely walk along the coast from Rye Harbour, Hastings, Winchelsea and - favourite of the dog and the toddler - Camber Sands. Would definitely recommend.

    Good house for a family get together, plenty of space downstairs although we did think the bedrooms (apart from the one in the roundel) were a little small. Very well equipped kitchen but the house did feel a bit “tired”. A stair gate would be useful if there we’re toddlers in the party.

    A beautiful property set in a lovely country surrounding. Amenities were a fair distance so a car is definitely needed. The oast house was clean and catered for all the family. The owners thought of everything needed from kitchenware to the games room, that was a real bonus. There were 10 of us in our family plus 2 dogs and we had loads of space in the house, good parking too. A lovely retreat for us, and would certainly come again. Rye is a lovely place to visit.

    A very lovely and comfortable 5 star rated Oast house in a delightful rural location but easy car access to Rye, sights and all the gardens of Kent and the beaches. The dining room and kitchen are particularly worth mentioning if staying as a group as theres tons of space and an abundance of kitchen utensils! the dining table seats 10 comfortably and we took great joy in eating in every evening and bought some fine rye candles for the table ! The range cooker is great for cooking for large numbers. our Labradoodle loved his stay too. The owners are easily contactable and very helpful. I would highly recommend this gorgeous holiday home ! We will be returning soon.

    It was large and functional although the washing machine was problematic at times. However, although clean, the property the property was tired and in need of general maintenance e.g. window latches and chipped bathtub. Something needs to be done about the mice that were present in the kitchen. Perhaps the main problem is the off road access and the excessive pot holes.

    Lovely cottage and great location. We all had a fab weekend. Could do with a good clean (lots of cobwebs) and don't rely on the Wi-Fi as hardly worked at all

    My whole family (mixed ages) enjoyed the house and location. My suggestions for improvement would be: Yard needs weeding and additional relaxing garden furniture would enhance the stay. The front porch is in desperate need of a clean up. Cleaning materials needed to ensure visitors can maintain the cleanliness. 2 dishwasher tablets does not cut it. Deep clean to brighten the house.

    The property is in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful location. We stayed as a large family group of 9 and overall had a lovely holiday. The outside area is of a good size and was great for two kids and two dogs to play in safely. However we were very disappointed with the general condition of the property, which was shabby, tired and in desperate need of a thorough deep clean, redecoration and refurbishment. This is potentially a beautiful property so it is a shame. The list of issues is too long to include here, but I have written to the owners so that they are aware and can hopefully take steps to improve things. In its current state I would not recommend this property as a place to stay, however with a bit of work and TLC it would be lovely.

    This is a stunning unique property set in beautiful countryside near Rye. It is very well equipped and was ideal for our family reunion. The property is on various levels and we did take a stair gate which helped with 20 month old twins! I would not hesitate to return.

    An interesting property in an interesting area. The property is large but cosy. The owners provide a range of maps and leaflets to help you decide what to do. If you don't what to do much at all, there is a generous outdoor area and and gas barbecue. Local pub a c. 20 minute (brisk) walk, but worth it for excellent beer and very good, and reasonably priced, food.

    We had a very relaxing time with plenty of space for everyone. Very peaceful and only wish we had known there was no table tennis equipment as the weather was lovely and we could have played outside even though it was March. Loved the views from Most of the bedrooms and also loved the open fire to sit round During the evenings.

    Cottage worked for a weekend family get together, but bedrooms are small, apart from the one in the Oast section. Kitchen and cottage in general could do with some TLC and tidying up - plastic bags in cupboards and wellingtons etc in storage box by front door.

    We recently stayed at the Oast House for a birthday gathering. We all loved our stay there. It has such a homely feel. We had 8 in our party and there was lots of room. Plenty of places to hang out so you're not on top of each other and you don't have to all be in the same room. It has an outrageous amount of board games! If board games are your thing then it's a winner. There's also the games room area which is great. Can't beat an open fire too. The surrounding area is lovely. Very quiet and peaceful. We were not disturbed at all. We left a bag at the property which is annoying but the owners were great in sorting that out. Would definitely recommend!

    I won't recommend this place as 5 rooms cottage but 4 only. The room downstairs is as big as a single and most of all, next to the fuel tank room which makes it smelly and toxic. The heater system wan't functioning properly either. The safety device was also off during that week end. Therefore, one couple decided to go back to London, as they neither wanted to sleep in those terrible sofas. We unfortunately had issue with our communication with the owner, but he tried to reach us as well. However, those issues should have been taken care before our booking anyhow and really hope it will be corrected in the future. We had a great time, as we are a good group of friends, but not because of the house unfortunately. It is not extremely expensive cottage, so we were not expecting anything grandiose. But the safety, the overall cleanliness and comfort were not enjoyable. The fireplace is also requiring a lot of wood (we only had 6 log for the week end in winter at 2 degrees outside) as it is far too big and let wind coming in as well. The location is great. Rye village was the highlight of the week end.
