The cottage was a little bit smaller than expected from the photographs. It was in a beautiful location but note that the beach off to the right is a private beach and also dogs are not allowed on part of the public beach between May to September. Both disappointing, as we planned to spend most of our time on the beach with the dog.

Lovely setting with beach at end of garden. Comfortable and well equipped. Had 2 granddaughters with us of 7 and 10 who loved the garden and the beach. Plenty to keep us occupied in the area as well as around the cottage itself. Would happily return

Fabulous property for a getaway - back garden opens into a beautiful beach and the front onto a canal. Great dog walking and the property is fully enclosed front & back making it ideal for pets/children.

very thoughtful use of the space which makes a small cottage very usable. The conservatory is a really nice big space. Everything works. The cottage is on a quiet road, Pett Level beach is accessed by walking thru the back garden and up a set of steps. If you want calm and quiet then this is for you.

Location of the cottage was excellent with the beach right outside the back gate. The cottage was adequate for 2 but I would think a bit cramped for 4. . The furniture is old and mismatched and it's charm may appeal to some but I found it made the place look unkempt. The cupboards were stocked with stuff however e.g. coffee tea baked beans condimenRead morets etc. And the cottage was warm and cosy. Hide

A lovely cosy cottage. Plenty of space with the large conservatory at the back. A nice secure back garden and direct access to the beach. For us it was a perfect relaxing break, but it might not be for you if you want bright lights and excitement. The nearest pub has closed, but there are a couple in easy driving distance. The towns of Rye, Battle,Read more Hastings and Winchelsea are historic and interesting to visit, and are all nearby. Hide

Fantastic location with the beach literally at the back door. The conservatory is great for meals/socialising.
