The open-plan living area maximises the space and gives it a bright and airy feel. Prepare a romantic dinner for two in the bespoke kitchen and eat in or outside on the patio depending on your mood – and the weather.

Absolutely superb and well equipped cottage, with beautiful gardens surrounding it, including a bird table, which we loved. Angela was extremely helpful upon arrival and there if needed, but her, and John, were unobtrusive during our stay. Thoroughly recommend it for a quiet/secluded getaway.

Brands Cottage is a very tastefully converted building set in beautiful gardens. We can honestly say that this is probably the cleanest, most well equipped holiday let that we have ever stayed in which really made us feel safe during these strange times of COVID-19. We chose this cottage because it looked really nice on the website but even the picRead moretures don't do it a real justice, it is beautiful. The owners were most welcoming but left us alone, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend Hide

Brands Cottage is a wonderful, cosy cottage with excellent features.

The cottage is located in a super quiet location and yet within easy reach of local gardens, castles, Hastings, Rye, Battle and Tenterden.
