A perfect place for a short break — or a longer holiday

What people say

Thank you for providing a well stocked cottage  so many thoughtful touches, such as the well-stocked book shelves, with books of local interest. The cottage is cosy and warm with the “crafty” artwork, beautiful cushions and painting.

Many thanks.

Thank you for providing a well stocked cottage. We kept cosy and warm while it hailed, sleeted and snowed outside with over 40 MPH winds! Look forward to our next visit.

Back again!  This feels like our “second home”.  Making use of the Nature Reserve and the excellent bus service here. Thank you Katy & Richard for allowing us here – we will no doubt be back again soon!

It’s been another great stay at your lovely cottage. On Wednesday morning I joined an organised walk at the reserve, meeting at the shelter next to the public toilets at 9.45 a.m.

I hope to be back soon!

Another enjoyable stay at the cottage.

We have a record of being here on the hottest day every recorded in the U.K. Next time I may do the walk from the reserve. Thank you K & R.

it’s about the 8th time we’ve been here –

Mainly for the birds but this time also did a nice walk round Rye town. Weather has been very warm with thunderstorms at night. Went to RSPB Dungeness as usual but need to come for longer to explore more – there’s always next time! Many thanks again Katy & Richard for providing such a lovely place to stay in.

All four of us love the cottage – 

and the village, and the town! Many thanks.

We had a lovely visit.

The cottage is so cosy in dodgy weather and we took advantage of sunny days, too! Saw quite a few birds – more than expected. Hope to return soon.
