A lovely cottage in the countryside. Very warm and comfortable with all the equipment you need. Plenty of room for everyone. The hot tub was used whilst the owls were hooting! Beds very comfortable. The view from the main lounge is quite beautiful.

We simply could not have asked for a more magical Christmas than we had at Scrag Oak! It was the perfect setting for our UK and German families to come together for the festive period! We all adored how cosy and traditional it was. The peaceful setting was a dream, the house was super well-equipped (we cooked an enormous Christmas dinner and had evRead moreerything we needed). We had great fun learning to cook on the aga, playing board games and using the hot tub. We made so many precious memories! Hide

ScragOak is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable and well equipped. The hot tub was clean and nice and warm and we got a good view of a passing tawny owl while using it. The Robin Hood pub at the top of the lane was excellent. I would love to return in the summer months so we could make more use of the garden. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay with family. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could need. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub looking across the garden and taking in the views. We ventured to nearby Rye, Camber sands and Dungeness whilst we were there - all great places to visit! We plan to return!
