Thank you for preparing the hut for our stay over the weekend, we really enjoyed staying. The goodies in the fridge were a great treat together with the logs to get us started with the log burner we used over both nights. We hope to come back soon, thats for the recommendations of the pubs as well! Best wishes.

What can we say what's not already been said so many times. The stables are very comfortable, perfect. The view lovely, very "English" (as we love it). So we had a marvellous time here! Thanks for all your care and hospitality. Kind regards from the Netherlands

We have had the most relaxing time here. We came away for our first wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place to celebrate. A lovely walk to the local pub and some very friendly locals made us feel very welcome in Sedlescombe. Thank you

Such a cute little place with all the home comforts you would think of. A beautiful area with great walks and a lovely local pub (The Queens Head). Left a page on a walk we did. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Sawmill

This is the 4th visit to Sawmill and still we find something different to do. Just discovered Mount Edgecumbe in the sunshine on a Sunday afternoon & American pancakes at Smith & Western for breakfast. Also try 'The Beer Craft cafe' at the top of the hill! Wonderful place to stay and we're looking forward to coming back again soon.

What a beautiful shepherds hut and peaceful surroundings. We love all the trees and the fact our little dog is free to roam around to her hearts delight! The hut itself is so well organised and very comfortable - we love it and feel its a home from home. Thank you so much Sue for the thoughtful goodies and the dog bowls, bed and towels, we have already booked to come back in the Autumn and get to put the logburner to good use, see you then! With grateful thanks.

Finally made it here for a summer visit and absolutely loved our stay as usual. Gorgeous weather meant we could make the most of the garden. Already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for everything!

What a delightful find. Beautiful 'hut'; wonderful scenery; so so comfortable and almost unbelievable that so much can be in a small space - the fire is so easy to start and so warming any time of day. Nut hatch, woodpeckers, long tailed tits and buzzards visited. What more to ask for. Thank you Sue for creating this 'Jessie'

Stables

Thank you Sue! Another lovely week in the 'stables' - you realise that you have spoilt us so much that we compare all other holiday cottages to yours!! Poppy enjoyed the field every morning and then a longer walk in Battle Woods where she met lots of four-legged friends!! This visit we actually got to Hastings where we had the best fish and chips ever at Maggie's (phone number is in the information folder!) - best to book as very popular even on a wet and windy day!! Thanks also to Don who is always so helpful and cheerful - and to your girls who do such a great job of making the Stables sparkle! See you again very soon. PS Had an excellent lunch at a pub called the 3 Chimneys near Sissinghurst - then needed a walk around the gardens at the Castle to walk it off!!

Wow! What an amazing little get away. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Sue for all your extra touches such as the goodies in the fridge and the dog bowl, bed and towels. The area around the hut is just perfect, What a lovely view to wake up to in the morning. We cannot wait to come back soon and will definitely be telling all our family & friends. Milo the dog says a massive thanks for giving him the garden he has never had! Kind regards

What a way to spend our first anniversary. Idyllic views, peace and quiet and bunny rabbits! Jessie is simply magical and we want to take her home.... but our tow bar isn't big enough! We will definitely be back for another visit. Thank you so much for making the whole stay so simple and relaxing.

A lovely break for the two of us! Jessie was the perfect host - a lovely little hotel on wheels. We want to take Jessie with us! ... And next time we'll take our very own Jess - our border collie.

We came to stay to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been a more perfect setting. Jessie is beautifully finished and equipped in a perfect setting. We spent our short stay resting, reading, BBQ-ing, walking and bird-watching. We are already planning our return. Thank you so much.

We enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable place, nice space outside. Visited a couple of places nearby. Loved Rye and Eastbourne & Seven Sisters. We had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone. Much greetings from Holland PS We highly appreciated the useful information in the house on sites and pubs in the area. I really enjoyed the view

Absolutely amazing place! What a lovely surrounding & perfect hiding spot for such a beautiful shepherds hut. We loved the weather and space outside of London - an escape from the hustle and bustle. Thank you so much for having us and I'm sure we will be passing the info to all our family and friends. Hopefully be back soon!

We love this cottage and this area so much. In fact we moved just ten minutes away!! (This week) This cottage has brought us many happy memories. Always spotless and inviting. I'm sure our family and friends will be staying here when they visit us. So thank you yet again.

A fantastic cottage - one of the best we have stayed in (and we've been to many!) It is immaculately clean and comfortable and we have appreciated your thoughtful attention to detail - providing everything we need. The hamper was so useful. It is in an ideal position for visiting many interesting places in this lovely part of the country. We have really enjoyed our short break - despite the very wet weather. We hope to return for a longer stay in the sunny weather! Many thanks.

Our first visit to this part of Sussex in order to explore the countryside and its country houses like Bodiam Castle, Great Dixter and Sissinghurst. We actually liked Scotney Castle best for it is not as touristy as the others and still breathes an authentic air. Recommended! Castlemans stables was a very comfortable place to stay, with everything provided for, lots of space and so pleasantly designed. Special thanks for the welcome basket, very much appreciated, in particular the local eggs. Congratulations on the Green Tourism award, something we very much like to support. Best regards.

Our 2nd visit and its just as lovely as we remembered it! Thank you for the welcome goodies - our last cottage in Devon left us a bottle of Prosecco but, despite being from Essex, we are much more a cuppa & kit kat family! Had a lovely day at Battle Abbey & we enjoyed the crazy golf at Hastings. Back to the reality of work & uni now. Thanks for all your hard work.

Our 5th visit to this fabulous cottage. We have had a wonderful two weeks. Had a couple of days at Spa Valley enjoyed the train rides and pub lunches. We always find something new to do. As always the cottage was spotless and as welcoming as ever. So sad to leave. Thank you once again

Well what an adorable place ... Everything is so well thought out from the windy trail through the orchard down to the ironmongery on the doors - everything is in the detail and its made our stay very relaxing. Nelly the dog was in heaven roaming around the ground and we never moved more than fifty feet during the two days. An absolute delight. Congratus on have made such a wonderful place for people to relax and recharge.

Our 4th visit to Sawmill Cottage feels like our 2nd home (wish it was!!). Just relaxed at the cottage because of the heat (not fair on Ruby our dog to be out in the extreme temperature) We had our walks in the evening when a little cooler. We still enjoyed every minute of it. Roll on August for our next visit. Thank you once again.

Sawmill

A really comfortable and superbly situated cottage. Excellent access to the Pantiles, the station and the shops. A short drive to so many places of interest. We needed a much longer stay to do them justice but enjoyed our visits to Hever Castle, Penshurst Place, the Downs at Birling Gap and Sissinghurst. Would recommend Sankeys at the Fish Market and Thackerays for meals but only if you're not counting the pennies! Overall, a wonderful week.

This was our second holiday in the Stable East and we loved every minute of it. It felt like home. There's so much nature to look at, it never bores. It was wonderful weather and we loved to sit on the veranda to enjoy the view. Batemans, house of the National Trust, was nice to visit. Also Hever Castle was a well spent day. On cooden Beach, Bexhill is a nice terras with good food and drinks. Thanks for letting us stay in your cottage and hope to come back again.
