“Fabulous place!”

I would really recommend this lovely cottage to anyone heading to southern England. It is a really quaint old cottage on an old farm that has been very tastefully renovated. It sits in beautiful gardens and has gorgeous sweeping views of rolling English hills and dales. It can be a bit hard to find so make sure you have directions handily because there is no formal address. Nat has done an excellent job with this and everywhere you look there are wonderful thoughtful touches. Bravo!

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We found this hidden gem by chance and what a find! It was exactly what we were looking for and I simply cannot recommend Downoak Abbey Lodge enough! It's a gorgeous wee apartment with lovely views and perfect peace and quiet! I am gutted to be leaving so soon and wish we had booked for a longer period.. There is loads to do nearby as well as some lovely restaurants & pubs. We particularly enjoyed visiting Bodiam Castle and Rye. We would also recommend Whites Seafood and Steak Bar in the heart of Hastings Old Town for a laid back atmosphere with delicious food and HUGE portions.
Overall, our stay has been an absolute delight. Thank you very much Nat.. We would love to come back next time we are visiting family down south.

“Perfect peace and quiet…”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

…except for the bees, the birds and nothing much else! A very enjoyable and very quiet break away from the madness. However it is close enough to get a loaf of bread or bottle of wine when you need. The lodge is well-equipped and comfortable. It has very positive energy and is conducive to complete rest and relaxation. I would recommend visiting Rye, Winchelsea, Bexhill de la Warr pavilion and Great Dixter gardens. The Wild Mushroom restaurant is fantastic — don't believe those negative reviews — and it's just up the road. I recommend Downoak unreservedly.

“EXCELLANT”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I brought my wife here for her 30th birthday. We had an absolutely lovely time. Although Nat was not there to greet us due to other commitments he arranged for his two friends Stephen and Simon who welcomed us very warmly. When we got to meet Nat he was very polite and again very welcomed us very warmly. The apartment is of a very high standard. The cleanliness of it was exceptional. The bed was just magical and my wife loved that it had heated blankets and I loved that she could control her side and I could control mine so I didn't have to sweat buckets.

The garden and orchid is amazing and such a peaceful place.

If ever down that way again we will be staying here!!
