“Our dog smiled when we returned to the Old Cricket Pavilion”
Reviewed 22 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Well, Urma was looking forward to trips on the railway - her own Daily Rover return ticket - and other adventures to places round and about. Needless to say, we like it too. The Pavilion is small enough to be cosy and large enough to really spread out. Terrie and Michael have thought carefully about the details and contents so that you can sit indoors or outside and enjoy the surrounding countryside.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 5 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Wow, what a wonderful little cottage ! We really enjoyed our stay in this perfect location and I think, it was not my last time in the old cricket pavilion. I really like the area around Bodiam and in this cottage you can relax perfect and watch the animals around ( "good morning call " from the pheasant, squirrels, sheeps, foxes....). A "big thank you" to Terrie !

“A perfect countryside escape”
Reviewed 13 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Of all the many holiday homes my family has stayed in across the UK, this is without doubt one of the best, and it is perhaps exceptional in that the place is even better in reality than in the photos. The setting is tranquil and picturesque, the Old Cricket Pavilion feels like home as soon as you set foot in the door, and the hosts who run the farm it is set on are wonderfully warm, kind and helpful. We strongly recommend the Sunday roast at the Castle Inn which is a few hundred metres away, and the neighbouring village of Hawkhurst has good supermarkets and takeaways. There is also a very fine deli a mile or so out of Hawkhurst.

We will certainly be returning to this idyllic retreat.
