“The perfect house for a family Christmas.”

We returned for our second Christmas week at the Mount - with a new addition to the extended family! Once again the house was perfect and so full of character. It's even cosier now as it has full oil fired central heating but we still enjoyed using the log burner and open fire on special evenings. The owner is very helpful and welcoming. The kitchen is lavishly equipped - very important for all those Christmas meals. The house felt very festive with a decorated tree and outside lights! More happy Christmas memories for all 3 generations!

“Lovely family holiday! ”

Booked The Mount for a long weekend break for our family of 11 to celebrate my parent's ruby wedding anniversary. Email communication was a bit difficult at times but that was only a small matter. The house itself was full of character, the older relatives were fascinated with the place! Facilities and amenities were great - everyone enjoyed the games room which also had toys to entertain our one year old nephew. The weather was perfect so we were able to make use of the BBQ and lovely garden. Bernie had mentioned that her daughter could cater a three course dinner for us (including the washing up!) so we availed of this for one night as a surprise for my parents which was well worth it! We had a wonderful relaxing stay at The Mount with great memories of a special time together!

8 of us spent a wonderful relaxing week at the Mount with ages ranging from 8 to 68. The games room was a bonus for the children, plenty of space for everyone and the house was very clean and tidy with thick fluffy towels and super soft bedding. Fantastic farm shop next door, within easy reach of so many things to do and only a 20 minute walk from Rye. The owners were very friendly and provided a professional service. The delicious chocolate cake they left us was a very welcome gesture, The Mount is a beautiful period cottage with so much character.

“The perfect place to enjoy a celebration!”

Myself and a group of friends stayed here to celebrate my 30th birthday. The house was perfect and very well equipped. It is full of character and there is plenty of space for everyone. Bernie was very helpful prior to our stay and the home made cake was a lovely touch!
We enjoyed a group meal around the dining table, breakfasts in the kitchen and had a lovely Barbecue with the use of the large barn/games room, while looking out onto the fields of Rye.
It really was the perfect weekend and we will certainly return again someday.
Thanks Bernie!
