This was our second time staying at this fabulous cottage (Blackthorn Cottage) which is set in the middle of the countryside and is surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. The accommodation is ever so homely and comfortable, as it has a very relaxed feel to it and we just loved spending time in the hot-tub which is set in the courtyard next to the heated indoor swimming pool.
Both Peter and Karen are probably the friendliest hosts that we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and they are such an interesting couple to talk to, as they are just so passionate about their community and they really do care about the needs off anyone staying there, as they will both go out of their way to assist you if you need it, but at the same time they will kindly leave you alone to just enjoy yourselves. Karen even passed on some of her award winning home made honey and fig pie, which she had entered into at their local fete and had won 1st prize!
We have booked again for next year (2019) this time for two weeks, as we just feel so relaxed by being here and it will be a pleasure to meet Karen & Peter again!
A warm welcome as expected from Peter on our return visit and this time we were lucky to enjoy a beautiful sunny day in Hythe. Blackthorn Cottage boasts a beautiful view, peace and quiet and a huge bonus of a hot-tub and pool. What's not to like? PS: The honey and eggs were delicious!
My wife booked this amazing little cottage as a surprise for my 40th Birthday.
The owner Peter was very accommodating and provided my wife and I with instructions,directions and general information about the area. We both loved our stay and would definitely be booking to return. The homemade birthday cake, fresh eggs and wine on arrival was a nice touch!
We have recommended Blackthorne to our friends and family as we found it to be a relaxing hideaway.
The hot tub was amazing!
Thanks again Peter!

We had a wonderful stay at Blackthorn for my partner’s birthday. Peter was SO helpful with recommendations for walks, visits and restaurants. Everything was perfect and we were given a free bottle of prosecco to celebrate with! Thank you so much Peter and Karen! We highly recommend staying at Blackthorn or Cedarwood (we had a little tour). :) Thanks again.
My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights at end of May. The cottage is located between Rye and Hastings and is perfect base for exploring local coastline and attractions. The cottage is in grounds of owners home and is just utterly lovely and kept spotlessly clean. Peter the owner is such a nice man and makes you feel very welcome and obviously cares that guests have a pleasant stay. Having exclusive use of the swimming pool & hot tub was the cherry on the cake!
We had a lot of rain on our second day but even so still plenty to do and see. There are some lovely pubs and restaurants in the area and some exceptionally pretty villages. We had a lovely time and will definitely return again.
