What a fantastic way to see in the New Year! Everything we could have wanted washere in this beautiful stable! The surrounding countryside - although muddy - provided lovely walks for us all, always ending at the Queens Head in the village which we couyldn't recommend enough. The welcome, the beer & food were all top notch. Thanks for the lovely welcome pack and logs! We'd love to come back in the summer!

A great week - we were so lucky with the weather. Pip (the dog) njoyed the sea and on frosty mornings the woods - slightly less muddy with a frost! The stables are lovely, comfortable, warm with everything you could need. The welcome hamper was much appreciated. Thank you for your hospitality.

This is our 6th or 7th stay (starting to lose count) and we still love it. This is our sanctuary. Somewhere we can have fun & relax. The stables are still of such high quality & we always want to stay longer. Thank you.

My second stay in Jessie - first night with my boyfriend who wanted to see what all the fuss was about after my first stay in August! Great steak at village pub 'Queens Head' Saturday evening, sat in the sun with breakfast Sunday morning then lunch at 'The Squirrel' just outside Battle .... and then time to myuself (with Lulu sausage dog) - SO COSY with the woodburner, wonderful peace in the luxurious space - what a tonic! PS only suggestion - little tray for those in bed cuppas:)

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.

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.

A perfect place to stay. Relaxing & cosy by the log burner. Comfy bed. All you could wish for. Coming back in the summer to enjoy relaxing outside and BBQ's & wine!

After moved to London in 2018, Jessie was our first countryside weekend holiday. It was really interesting and beautiful time for us. Made us remember our childhood, cottage house, woodburner, some food within. Thanks for this amazing place, having great time -and for everything.

Really enjoyed our time here in Jessie and around East Sussex & Kent. A beautiful part of the world & somewhere my family visited when I was a child. Jessie is se well put together & thought out. Beautifully designed & kitted out & finished. Lovely. Sandy felt very at home and loved sniffing her way round the 'garden' . Lots of walks meant she slept well too. We will be recommending to our friends and family for sure.

We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this one rates above the rest. Attention to detail is outstanding. Great location to explore Sussex and into Kent. The village shop has a great variety of groceries. The granddaughters loved having their own bedroom and bathroom. Thanks for making us so welcome.

So good to be back for our third visit this year. The Stables are really like home from home. We had some splendid days out despite the poor weather and as always found the cottage warm and welcoming. Our dogs especially loved the chance to use the field and over the two weeks have become much fitter and better trained along with their owners! Thanks again to Sue and her team for the attention we received during our stay.

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!

Thank you for a lovely stay at 'Jessie', it has been wonderful being surrounded by nature whilst in a very warm, comfortable, very well-decked out shepherds hut! Everything we needed was provided (minus a tea towel!) and is very homely and cosy. Our dogs had a lovely time running outside & watching the sheep, cows & shetland ponies! Thank you again - we will be back

Jessie was booked as my birthday present and what a special present it turned out to be. Beautiful setting and Jessie was lovely. Everything we needed and the extra touch of the basics in the fridge already there was great. Lovely cosy wood burner helped to make it a memorable weekend. Thank you for a lovely mini holiday.

We had a lovely stay at Jessie's over the weekend, we sampled the local pub food at the Queens Head - the fish starter is a must try!! and came back to a roaring fire, it was so homely and cosy, excellent walking around Battle on Saturday. Made for a lovely weekend. We will be back!! Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend n a beautiful and comfortable hut. Its gorgeous!!

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!!

September 2019

Jessie

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.

I really enjoyed the view
