About Karen Harrison
Our family bought the cottage four years ago,we love this area and we never tire of coming here. We all enjoy a shopping trip to Hastings especially my teenage daughter, as there are great vintage shops and a bargain can still be found!!! Fish and chips at 'Maggies' in an old fishermans hut is a must. (definitely the best we've ever tasted) . Rye is also a favourite this time with my younger son, as it has two old fashioned sweet shops to choose from, and an amazing church tower to climb. But for views you can't beat the cottage and I often find my self staring out of windows entranced..... On a clear night you can see the lights of France twinkling across the sea. Last but not least, 'Stanley'our dog is in heaven chasing rabbits along the cliff top, and the birds across the beach.

Amazing cottage with stunning views!
The cottage is easy to find. Its location is unique! Clifftop views from the French coast line over to Beachy Head. The master bedroom under the roof is great, as the sun wakes you up and the sunset lets you start dreaming. Inside you will find cozy rooms, exactly like you see on the pictures. We spend a relaxing week there and were blessed with sunny days and a cool breeze. One car can be parked in front of the cottage. The garden is beautifully located westwards and hosts a bench-table for 4. The welcome-gift was appreciated after a long journey. The wide land across the cliffs is just a step outside the cottage, where you can walk the unleashed dog.
It's truly a secret gem. We would like to come back asap, as we liked it so much! Thanks a lot for your hospitality, Karen!
Thank you Thomas for such a lovely review! It's so great when our guests love it as much as we do 😊� . Please come back if you can, you are always welcome.
All the best
Beautiful cottage, amazing views, wonderful location.
Well where do I start ...
We (a family of 6 adults and 2 dogs) stayed at Coastgaurd cottage over the wonderfully sunny May bank holiday week. The weather was glorious and what a place to be to enjoy it!
The cottage has everything you need. Is cosy and welcoming, the beds are comfy and Karen the owner is super helpful. The kitchen is full of plenty of glasses and plates etc and there was some bread, milk, butter and jams waiting for us on arrival which was also a lovely touch.
If you enjoy the outdoors then this is the place to visit. It sits on an amazing national park with stunning views and there is a quiet secluded beach just a 20 minute walk through all of the wonderful wild garlic. The property is also close to towns such as Rye with quaint little shops meaning that there is plenty to do.
I would say that the property is perfect for a family get away with children, adult escape or couples retreat.
We will most definitely return and I have to say this has become one of my favourite places in England :)
What views!!! Bed a delight!
We managed to arrive a day late because of illness at the start of the coldest and snowiest week in decades, and it was cold having been unoccupied the week before, however we huddled round the wood burning stove and got the place warm ( I have to state that I do not think that would normally be a problem!!!) Upstairs seemed warmer and the bed we slept in was sooooo comfortable!! Next day there was a little snow which transformed the views to something quite ethereal. However we were not well enough to visit our relatives which was our main purpose in being there and we left on the Wednesday, having worked out that it was the best chance we had in making it home in one piece and not being snowed in. We had a wonderfully clear journey home A21, M25 and M40 had never been seen so empty!! I hasten to add that the accommodation was fine and quite quirky and comfortable. I would happily return there and look forward to doing so, - it was our misfortune that our illness, the weather and my brother's state of health combined to work against us.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I really felt for you that week it couldn't have got any worse! Do let me know if you want to come again sometime . Also many thanks for your DIY skills. 😊�
Stunning location and cozy, stylish cottage
We had a lovely week with our 2 children and grandparents. We even managed to walk to Hastings which was a very muddy but beautiful 1.5hr walk. The coastal path is partially closed but still worthwhile.
Thankyou Sally . So glad you had some sunshine . All best wishes Karen X
Stunning views and very comfortable accommodation
The property is in a fabulous location with stunning sea views in all directions. An added bonus were the lovely sunsets to the front of the house and a beautiful sunrise from the back.The nature reserve is right on the doorstep, affording easy access to great country walks. The house was really comfortable for 3 couples for a New Year break and the owner thoughtfullly left welcome provisions for our arrival including milk, bread, eggs and butter.
Really lovely homely place to stay. Views & walks lovely
Thank you 😊
