Fantastic three days at blackthorn. Huge thanks to both Karen & Peter for all the local advice and for being the perfect hosts. Three days of total relaxation in beautiful countryside with the added bonus of our own pool and hot tub. Ideally located for day trips to a lot of Sussex attractions we would totally recommend this holiday. Peter I think you should consider changing blackthorn's name to Elysium cottage. Thanks again hope to see you both again soon.
Only here for three days, which was just not enough, but we still managed to unwind and enjoy the scenery and the quiet. Peter and Karen are the perfect hosts, there if you need them with a vast knowledge of the area/wildlife/places to eat, but they leave you alone to enjoy their surroundings. Cottage is a dream and more than comfortable for two. The pool was a great bonus too. Felt at home immediately.
You have a beautiful home Peter and Karen. Thanks too for the hens eggs, they were lovely. We will definately return but for longer next time.
Great place for our stay, everything we needed and pool was great. Such a good location and view as well. Thank you!
Cedar wood is a dear little cabin, most tastefully decorated and furnished, and with everything one might need for an overnight, or weekend stay near Rye. There are so many restaurants, walks and other attractions within a short car ride, that we regretted we were not staying longer. Sharing a huge lawn with Blackthorn Cottage, Cedarwood is far enough away from it to offer peace and privacy. We stoked the little fire with logs when the weather was bad, and lunched on the sunny deck when the weather was good. We enjoyed the dorma window above the bed, and fell asleep under the stars, listening to the rustle of leaves overhead.
From the onset of our initial enquiry, through to the end of our stay, Peter was the perfect host. He was prompt and attentive in all communications; considerate and accommodating - always to hand if needs be, but never imposing.
We would definitely consider Cedarwood again, and Blackthorn Cottage for a longer stay, only due to size.
6th stay at blackthorn and booked for next year. Shame the weather was not the best but still relaxed in pool and hot tub.
Peter and Karen are brilliant hosts and there is lots of information in the cottage and they know most things about the area.
Cottage is well equipped with TV, DVD player, dishwasher, microwave and kitchen equipment. Just bring your food and drink.
Great views and not far from rye and local pubs with great food.
Well worth the stay for relaxation and chill out
