Why Louise and Graham Jarvis chose Robertsbridge
Robertsbridge is a beautiful part of East Sussex. Easy access to South Coast and its attractions. It is the childhood home of Louise. We just want our guests to have a lovely time escaping to the country. Robertsbridge is a friendly social village with excellent pubs, restaurants and shops. The Parlour and The Dairy are attached properties. The connecting party walls have been sound tested to building regulation standards. The Dairy has one en-suite bedroom with a king sized bed and is suitable for two people. The Parlour is of similar specification to The Dairy, it has two en-suite wet rooms with king sized and super king sized beds. The Parlour also provides level entry access suitable for people with disabilities, so if you wish to holiday with friends or families with disabilities you may consider renting both properties or The Parlour instead of The Dairy. Please note that The Dairy is NOT level entry access, it has a step to the front door. These properties are idea if you are holidaying with friends or extended family as it provides individuals with your own independence and personal spaces.

Perfect base for touring attractions of East Sussex & Kent
The property is relatively small but perfectly formed. Although it adjoins the Dairy property it was extremely quiet & private. Comfortable beds with good quality linens. We were two mature ladies attending a study day at Great Dixter, property was absolutely ideal for what we needed. Centrally located for many of the attractions in the area being within easy driving distance. Louise & Graham were in no way intrusive even though they live across the courtyard. Excellent hosts & property, would highly recommend.
Warm, hospitable hosts, lovely clean cottage, wonderful location. We would love to have stayed longer. Such a perfect holiday.
We had a really lovely stay. It is a great place that we enjoyed very much.
Thank you very much, Louise, for your warm welcome and your kind help with returning our forgotten items!
Pleasure to meet you all.
Very comfortable accommodation
My Mum, husband and I had a very enjoyable stay here. The accommodation is spacious, clean and modern and the views from the property are spectacular. There's plenty to do within easy distance and Robertsbridge is a picturesque village.
A great place to stay to explore the local scenery.
We are a family of three, with my son being 2.5 years old. We stayed for three nights in this lovely place and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was spotlessly clean, very well furnished and overall super comfortable. Louise was super helpful and gave us a lot of tips about our plans. My son enjoyed seeing horses from close, as well as walking down the road to the centre of the village. Lunch in the George Inn is highly recommended, good food and great prices. We will gladly stay in this cottage again.
Very nicely kept and everything you need!
Very friendly welcome on our arrival. Accommodation is bigger than it looks in the picture with lots of space to relax. Very comfortable beds and strong shower power. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to cook. Some of the saucepans weren’t suitable for an induction stove?? Lovely surprise realising it was an induction and not electric, works very well!
Log burner is very good quality, super easy to light and keep burning all night. Do, let it go out a while before going to bed or you’ll be too hot! Recommend going to the Globe inn for food, lovely and abit quirky. Hastings new town is gross but the old town is lovely, check out Di Pola ice cream!
