We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage! We found parking outside easily and ventured to Hastings and Bexhill, which was a short drive away. Battle High Street was within walking distance, had a beautiful array of shops and we visited Battle Abbey which provided plenty of activities for our children. The Italian restaurant on the High Street was great! The cottage itself was gorgeous! It had so much character and was an ideal stay for our family. Luckily the weather was warm enough that we were able to enjoy eating in the outside dining area of the garden and there was a park within short walking distance for the children to enjoy. We would definitely recommend!
We stayed here for a midweek break in August with our 18 month old boy. The cottage is situated in a great location to explore Sussex and to just stroll into Battle. We walked into Battle high street a couple of times, which took a bout 10 minutes. We also had a couple of days where we drove out further afield. Hastings is about 20 minutes away and Rye is a bout another 15 minuted from there. We found Hastings a bit rough around the edges but really liked the Old town. Rye is a beautiful place to go and visit and would recommend it. We were battling the elements on this holiday but it didn't stop us from having a great time.
Back to the cottage, It is equipped with everything you would require from a holiday home and a bit more. It is a lovely little cottage full of character. We had an issue on arriving at the cottage where, the key box was not working properly. I contacted Keith and he had this sorted in a matter of minutes.
You get a bit of a chill in the morning but I think this is because we were only using the heating on a timer (we had an unfortunate week for weather), once on the heating is very good and we used this to dry our rain drenched clothes.
I thought parking was going to be an issue but every night I was able to park opposite the cottage on the main road.
All in all we had a nice stay and would recommend the cottage.
We travelled as two pensioners and two grandchildren aged 11 and 13. Just because the cottage has a sofa bed in the living room does not make it suitable for 4 people as advertised. The entry to the property is highly restrictive for people with a poor footing which is not mentioned in the advert. We had difficulty in contacting the owner and the procedure through Tripadvisor is complicated. There is nowhere to part a car except on yellow lines. There is no eating//dining area in the cottage so it is all meals on laps. The bath has only a hand held shower in the bath which makes it difficult to wash. The toilet and bathroom are off the kitchen so if anyone is occupying the sofa bet it is awkward to get to these facilities at night especially where a teenage girl is concerned. There are too many nick-nacks about the place that further restrict space. They only provided 2 sets of towels for 4 people I know the cottage is old and space is restricted but your advertising showld be a lot clearer. Overall we were disappointed and went home a day early as we did not want to suffer restriction any more.
Such a nice little cottage in Battle and perfect for our stay with my husband and toddler. Very easy to find and walking distance from the high street. The good weather meant we could enjoy eating in the lovely little garden. Great location for day trips around East Sussex, we went to Bodiam Castle, Batemans and the Rye. Recommended.
What a cute place to stay! lots of attention to detail and everything you need has been thought of. Really pretty bedroom and the garden is so lovely with lots of spring flowers making ir a treat for the senses.
Only downside for me was the road noise which, being a light sleeper, did wake me early most mornings. But a small price to pay for staying somewhere so lovely.
