“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a fantastic stay at Blackthorn and would highly recommend it. The cottage was lovely with everything we needed, the garden and views just amazing and the hot tub and pool both fantastic. We particulary enjoyed having breakfast overlooking the beautiful garden and watching the variety of wild birds just outside the window. The hosts were really helpful and we hope to return in the near future.

“Lovely dream holiday”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I stayed 2 nights in Black Thron with my 5 years old son to get away from busy London. We both love swimming so when we realised the pretty cottage has a swimming pool and bath outside, I was so excited!

Thanks to Peter to pick us up from a station near by (and drop us off) . He also showed us the villages around the area. Thanks to Karen to give us fresh rhubarb. Their son Ollie rend my don some kids DVD! Thanks. My son and me had such a great time. We definitely come back soon. It is our favourite place in UK!

It is located in a beautiful country side but actually easy to get around Hastings and Rye by bus.
The village has a small but excellent variety of foods and drinks. It is about 15-20min walk from the cottage.

“Lovely place for a short break on the South Coast.”
Reviewed 1 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Returned home today after 3 nights at Blackthorn.
Arrived to fresh flowers and eggs (chicken AND duck) on the table, and we were warmly welcomed by Peter.
Pool is a lovely temperature - our 3-and-a-half month old son even had his first ever swims in there!
Beautiful relaxing countryside views - we watched rabbits, squirrels and many types of birds through the window.
Great location for driving to Rye, Camber Sands, Bodiam Castle, Battle, etc.
Will be recommending to friends!
