About Mrs Deacon

The main house, holiday let and grounds have been a huge renovation project since we moved here nine years ago. We live here with our two labrador dogs and two horses. I run a successful sports and deep tissue massage business from a dedicated treatment room at home, guests are advised to book massages before they arrive as I do get very busy.

Mrs Deacon purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Mrs Deacon chose Ticehurst

The Garden Cottage is a great location for singles, couples and families either wanting to get away from it all or who want loads of activities on their doorstep. We are in walking distance of Bewl Water which is great for walking, cycling and offers watersports including sailing. Ten minute drive from Bedgebury Forest and Pinetum for amazing cycle trails for families through to high adrenalin ones, plus extensive kids areas and Go Ape. Loads of sightseeing opportunities, less than 20 miles from coast, beautiful historic villages and towns, golf courses, vineyards. Good rail links to London. The list of things to do is endless. And at the end of the day if you don't feel like cooking there is an amazing 18th century pub and restaurant 200 metres away. What more could you ask for?

Well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well equipped and comfortable. It is in a lovely quiet location, with views over the countryside. It's near to a local pub with good food and there are lots of places to visit in the surrounding area.

Great property, great location - would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We booked this trip with only weeks before we travelled with our 7 week old son and were so pleased with our choice.

The cottage was immaculately clean, a great size and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

We'll always rave about the shower and huge bed which were pleasant surprises, but the rest of the cottage was a delight. The decor is splendid and all completed to a high quality. The amount of crockery and cooking equipment available also made this feel like a home from home.

The instructions on everything in the cottage were useful, as was the large folder on local places of interest - of which there was plenty to do!

We can't leave a review without recommending the local pub - The Bull Inn; the staff are so friendly and helpful and the food really was pub food at its best.

All in all this was a wonderful stay and we already know we'll be back for another visit.
