Relaxing by the river
The property is very well presented with great outdoor space and has all the home comforts that you need. We were made to feel very welcome (appreciated the goodies on arrival). Lovely walk over the fields to Rye. Stunning views and a glorious sunset made each day a pleasure and we will be going back in the near future to enjoy this little gem by the river. The annex had all the home comforts which made the stay even more pleasurable topped off by Connie & Clem who were the perfect host from start to finish.
A really relaxed break
We stayed for 5 days and from the outset Connie and Clemm made us feel extremely welcome. The location was ideal for a quiet relaxing break plus an ideal centre for walking and exploring the local area. Additionally all required amenities are located close by.
The cottage had everything you needed and was clean comfortable and warm. It was ideal to be able to sit out by the river and enjoy the views and wildlife.
Connie and Clemm made sure we enjoyed our time there and were perfect hosts. We will recommend the cottage to family and friends
and will return. We thank Connie and Clemm for all their hospitallity.
fun, relaxing & such a warm welcome
I stayed with my 6yr old granddaughter. What lovely couple of people Connie & Clem are. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The welcome pack was appropriate to a child & the extras of cooking oil, salt, etc showed a real interest in supporting our stay. The wine was welcome too. The annexe provided a relaxing comfortable space for us to have privacy whilst knowing support was immediate if required. The views are excellent, the garden space interesting. The nik naks, ornaments & other items within the home intrigued us, as did the lights along the decking each evening. We had a lovely week which was only improved on by our hosts providing a single bed for my granddaughter on our first night. We slept more comfortably.
The annexed is within walking distance of the beach, brief travel to Camber & other beaches & Rye is also close.
The annexed was well equipped & could provide easily for 4/5 people. It wasn't just a base for us it was a lovely happy holiday home for us to have quality time together. We will return.
