Gorgeous little cottage, with a wood fire, plus cosy lounge and comfy bed. The luscious succulents added just the right amount of greenery. Heaps of kitchenware and a large outside entertaining area make this a perfect location to host a lunch party. For us it was a lovely weekend get away from city life. The location feels like you're secluded in nature, very peaceful. It would have been nice to have a hard copy of the house rules and know of a few local eateries, as we struggled to find something open on a Sunday night.

Great get away for the two of us. We loved the cosy feel in winter with the bath and fire place, but would be great in summer too! We would happily book again. Very clean and excellent communication.

Recently spent a weekend to celebrate my partner's birthday, and the cottage was exactly as described, if not a bit more spacious than the photos let on. The bath and shower were as good as the reviews have already said; the kitchen was well-equipped; the fireplace was a welcomed salve for an autumn/winter weekend; and though it was cold for us, the patio combined with sliding glass doors and privacy fencing would be wonderful in the right weather, for outdoor dining or just a great coastal breeze. Check-in was seamless and Bev was incredibly responsive whenever an inquiry arose. We had a fantastic weekend down in Rye but found it ended far too soon - definitely look forward to staying with Bev again in the future!
