Vera made the process easy and responded quickly to queries and requests before our stay. Her home is lovely. Near to a town but with a very rural feel. It was great to have a comfortable double bed each. The property is clean and nicely furnished, with some fun and quirky decorative touches. The WiFi worked well and the T.V. system was great once we mastered it (Virgin T.V.). There is outside space but we didn't have time to use this. Parking is at either end of the street (which we knew beforehand) and we were always able to find a space, even late at night. Unfortunately the bathroom is downstairs (the bedrooms are up) which was slightly irritating. Similarly the shower had very little power, which was surprising in a house that was otherwise well equipped and modern. None of these these things detracted from our stay, however, and we would certainly recommend this property.

A really lovely house and Vera made us feel very welcome, letting us know everything we needed to know about the house and the local area. Nice quiet location and tastefully decorated. Would definitely recommend a stay in this lovely cottage!

We enjoyed staying in the cottage - it's a nice cosy place and we found it quiet. The cottage is up a tiny lane which was easy to find with a sat nav but parking near to the cottage was difficult. The rooms are spacious and nicely designed. We enjoyed the modern bathroom with underfloor heating, and the lovely log burner in the sitting room. The main bedroom was also comfy with a large bed. There is no storage for clothes/baggage however. The kitchen was useful but a little cluttered. This was our first experience of staying in a home where the owner actually lives when not let out, so this was a different stay to our previous trips to cottages. We met Murphy the dog who was friendly but very excitable. The handover from Vera was useful but perhaps a bit rushed as she prepared to go away for the weekend. The cottage is ideally placed being close to the m23 and m25. We visited the downs and Brighton, but can't comment on the local area as we didn't explore much locally.

We spent a lovely New Year's Eve and Day at Vera's cottage. On arrival we were greeted by a box of chocolates and a card. The living room was cosy and was stocked with enough firewood and kindling for our stay. We also enjoyed using the generously-sized kitchen. The bathroom was clean and modern with both a bath and a shower. The bedroom was super cosy and we were provided with lots of comfortable bedding. We didn't get to explore much of the local area because the weather was awful but Vera provided us with lots of information on walks, restaurants and other attractions. I would definitely recommend staying in this cute cottage if you're looking for a nice escape!

The cottage is fantastic and very stylishly decorated. Vera was a great host, and even though she was away the weekend we were staying, we felt so welcomed with lovely touches (even a chocolate Easter bunny to help add a festive touch), and she made herself fully available in case of any issues (though there were none - the cottage is so well maintained and Vera had sent through all information that would be needed). I would highly recommend the cottage, and well may well be back.
