In glorious rural surroundings, pet friendly cottage ideal for larger groups, with footpath across miles of open countryside close by.

In glorious rural surroundings, pet friendly cottage ideal for larger groups, with footpath across miles of open countryside close by.

This attractive detached house set in the owner’s grounds provide spacious holiday accommodation situated at the end of a mile-long lane in glorious rural surroundings. Pet friendly and offering a plethora of walks on the doorstep, the cottage offers good quality linen and towels and a superb self catering base. There is a public footpath leading off the owner’s drive providing miles of walks across open countryside. A trip to picturesque Rye enables visitors to sample local foods at the Wednesday morning farmers market which is held at Strand Quay. By taking a stroll along the cobbled streets, there is also the chance to buy a memento from one of the many independently-owned shops and boutiques, art galleries and potteries - or even start Christmas shopping from the wide selection of goods available! Also worth a visit are Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Camber Sands and Camber Castle – this area of saltmarsh protects some very special wildlife, and footpaths lead to four birdwatching hides. The picturesque market town of Battle makes for an enjoyable day out, as well as Hastings, the Sealife Centre and Pevensey Castle (where the Romans invaded). The area is also well known for its local vineyards including Chapel Down and Sedlescombe. A trip to Tenterden - often referred to as the Jewel of the Weald - is an alternative and, for garden lovers, Sissinghurst (National Trust) is not to be missed. Further National Trust places to visit include Smallhythe Place, Scotney Castle and Bodiam Castle. Day trips to France are possible with the Channel Tunnel a mere 30-minute drive. An excellent sky venue for astrology, photography, or just wishing on a star. Shops 1½ miles, pub 1 mile.

    Good house for a family get together, plenty of space downstairs although we did think the bedrooms (apart from the one in the roundel) were a little small. Very well equipped kitchen but the house did feel a bit “tired”. A stair gate would be useful if there we’re toddlers in the party.

    A very lovely and comfortable 5 star rated Oast house in a delightful rural location but easy car access to Rye, sights and all the gardens of Kent and the beaches. The dining room and kitchen are particularly worth mentioning if staying as a group as theres tons of space and an abundance of kitchen utensils! the dining table seats 10 comfortably and we took great joy in eating in every evening and bought some fine rye candles for the table ! The range cooker is great for cooking for large numbers. our Labradoodle loved his stay too. The owners are easily contactable and very helpful. I would highly recommend this gorgeous holiday home ! We will be returning soon.

    We recently stayed at the Oast House for a birthday gathering. We all loved our stay there. It has such a homely feel. We had 8 in our party and there was lots of room. Plenty of places to hang out so you're not on top of each other and you don't have to all be in the same room. It has an outrageous amount of board games! If board games are your thing then it's a winner. There's also the games room area which is great. Can't beat an open fire too. The surrounding area is lovely. Very quiet and peaceful. We were not disturbed at all. We left a bag at the property which is annoying but the owners were great in sorting that out. Would definitely recommend!
