Fantastic cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Meadow Sweet cottage. The cottage was charming and full of old delights but had all the modern conveniences you could need. The kitchen had all the equipment and cleaning materials to make for a comfortable stay, and the supplies and goodies left for our arrival were an added pleasure. We loved sitting in the quiet garden in the evenings, enjoying the last of the sunshine. The cottage was ideally placed for accessing Hastings, Rye, Camber Sands and some of the national trust properties inland. The owner, Kerry, was fantastic in her correspondence and making sure we had all we needed. Loved it!

We stayed in Meadowsweet Cottage for a week. It is one of the best we have stayed in. The owner Kerry was in contact before and after our stay and had left a few provisions on our arrival. Nice touch. Thankyou Kerry. Cottage well placed for exploring surrounding areas. Two pubs in the village which we tried both. Both good for food. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

An absolute gem of a cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a great location. The owners have managed to retain all the charm and quirkiness of this period cottage but have furnished it with all the modern conveniences. The property is extremely well maintained and was lovely and clean. There was a loaf of bread and a cake waiting for us on our arrival with butter and milk in the fridge plus a range of teas and coffee. A very welcoming touch and most appreciated after our drive down.

We didn't get to meet the owners, but the communication from Kerry was excellent and she really made us feel welcome through her text messages and emails. I'm sure that Meadowsweet Cottage will remain on our list of favourite holiday properties and we'll be back for another visit.

Sweet stay at Meadowsweet

  • 5 of 5

So excited to stay in a Grade II cottage with all the old features yet modern cons in the kitchen. The cottage is clean and well maintained. The lounge and main bedroom are very spacious. Watch the low beam but that is part of the charm of the cottage.

It is located in a lovely village with a good pub ( Two Sawyers ) within walking distance.

The owners were very helpful with information before our departure from Australia and very obliging in every way.

Stayed September/October 2017

Delightful listed country cottage in Pett

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a superb 3 nights at Meadowsweet Cottage recently which was a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. We enjoyed relaxing in the characterful lounge in front of the gas log burner after long days out walking. The modern kitchen was fully equipped if you wanted to cook at home. The bathroom was very clean and modern with lovely towels. Would definitely return for another stay in the future. Many thanks Jo and Rob
