It was a magical stay, and we had the chance to get to know our 8 month old grandson much better than we ever could on our weekend visits from our home in Manchester. The gardens and set up of Pirates Lookout provided beautiful safe surroundings where we could enjoy being together, but the benefits of two bathrooms and bedrooms meant we had some luxury as well. Some excellent places to visit, all within 30 mins; Hastings, Rye, Battle with outstanding views from Fairlight village. It's the first time we have taken a property rather than a hotel stay, and it was fantastic. The owner has thought of everything and the property is everything we could have wanted and then some.

The gardens and accommodation are immaculate and the owners very welcoming. The views from the nearby beach are stunning and although there are other cottages sharing the same area we really appreciated the privacy. The onsite facilities (swimming pool and hot tub) were lovely, and the cottage has everything you could possibly need to make your stay easy. Would definitely stay again.

                                                                                                What an absolutely beautiful place to spend a few nights! This cottage is perfect for any couples wanting a quiet short break, and I cannot fault the owners whatsoever. When I arrived, the cottage was spotless with fresh towels and bedding. I was also greeted with fresh eggs, a loaf of bread and bottle of juice, Thank you! No need to bring or buy any essential odds and ends such as dish washing tablets, cooking oil etc, as the owners provide plenty for you stay. I regret going food shopping to an out of town supermarket, as there is a bakery next door and a deli shop. They have a reasonably large range of foods you can buy, so if a next time comes, I won’t be going out of town for food. However, this could be expensive if you eat a substantial amount of food. There are also plenty of restaurants in the old town of Hastings if you do not feel like cooking at home. In addition, the cottage really is very beautiful with lots of original features. If you are taller than some people, you might want to be careful or you might bump your head a few times! Also, the ceiling lamp above the dining table is a bit too low for my liking. I bumped my head on it a few times when getting off my seat, so the lamp could be lifted a little bit higher. Lastly, the little court yard is very nice in evenings and can be used for a little BBQ feast. In spite of that, maybe a small roll out canopy could be as a future improvement, as Hastings being a coastal town; the rain can come and go quick. I enjoyed my stay here with my partner and I would love to visit again on a long weekend break. Thank you for everything and best wishes for the future! Bobby
