    "A fully enjoyable 5 day stay from the the very friendly welcome to the wider week experiences in and around the cottage and farm. Ideal for 2 adults and a dog and located very close to popular attractions such as Battle and Hastings as well as numerous walks and local pub👍"

    "Andrew & Penny were the perfect hosts - they were very welcoming and supportive throughout our stay, especially when we needed to get veterinary advice for one of our dogs at the local vets in Battle. The farm location was brilliant and so relaxing, with a short walk to the bottom of Sedlescombe village & a number of pretty woods nearby for off lead walking. The cottage is very cosy and peaceful, the bed and sofa very comfortable & the shower was spacious and powerful, which makes all the difference. We enjoyed visiting old haunts in Hastings Old Town, Bexhill, Battle, Rye & Camber, eating some fresh seafood and fish and walking on the beach. Many thanks!"

    "Lovely stay. Owners very welcoming friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure your stay was comfortable. They went above and beyond in our hour of need and we can't thank them enough."

    "What lovely hosts. We didn't want for anything. Thank you Penny and Andrew."

    "Having never experienced a cottage holiday; with the dog before - we were pleasantly surprised. Can not fault our hosts; so friendly and on hand if any issues. The cottage is situated within the farm; had an enclosed courtyard which was excellent for the dog and we also be for young children. Following on the cottage came with three enclosed paddocks which were completely dog friendly which had been allocated for guests. The cottage had a warm and comfort feel, no problems with coping with a large dog / two adults - plenty of room both up and downstairs. Excellent network connections.Came away very relaxed. Would highly recommend and we are hoping to return again. Thankyou"

    "The owners are very friendly however the cottage itself has some major problems.The sleeping accommodation, (I can't call it a bedroom) in the eves of the apartment is completly enclosed with not the slightest possibility of fresh air circulation or daylight. It's actually unhealthy.That is the same problem with the toilet/shower, totally enclosed with no light or fresh air possibilities and the tiny fan doesn't do much so there is often a quite unpleasant smell of stale water. It's not possible to stand up and the storage possibilities for clothes is very limited and difficult to use.There is no dishwasher and very limited cutlery available, so always washing, sometimes during the meal.The WIFI is the slowest I've experienced single dial-up internet in the 80/90's, less than 1Mb.. streaming totally impossible.When we arrived, the cottage smell was completely overpowering due to 'scent makers' covering latent smells. After we removed them, the room was bearable but it was a toss up what was worse in the shower/ toilet.The very steep stairs could be a problem for many Exiting the property is quite dangerous; it's on a VERY busy A21 and you have poke you nose out to see traffic from the right and visibility to the left very limited. With the traffic often highly exceeding the speed limit, you cross your fingers coming out.The building is divided into two VERY small accommodations, if they were made into ONE, with a normal bedroom, it would be a normal acceptable size, however calling them bijou is misusing the word.. they are smaller. I'm afraid that without major improvements, I would definitely not recommend Quince cottage or its adjoining twin."

    "Nice holiday cottage just off main road so there was some traffic noise. Quite steep stairs to the bedroom and limited head room because of the sloping roof/eaves also no window so I imagine it would get hot and stuffy in the summer though there was an electric fan provided. Nice walk across field to village and pub on a sunny day but as we had quite a lot of rain it became quite soggy and as the grass was long your trousers ended up getting wet too, shame there was no safe other walking route to village."

    "Beautiful place nice and clean and very friendly owners would be definitely coming back ??"

    "Quince cottage is a small and very clean accommodation. It is well situated to access Hastings. There was a large field available for the dog to run in and it was lovely to see the chickens and give the pig a brush when we were passing! We were disappointed that there wasn't a DVD player available but not the end of the world on a two night break. Be aware that the upstairs room is in the roof and therefore quite tight for headroom!"

    "Andrew and penny were very welcoming and accommodating, we were lucky enough to have a guided tour Around the farm to meet the swans, pigs, chickens, sheep and thier dogs, Andrew kindly gave me some rare breed bacon from the farm shop (amazing).Great location for walks in and around battle and and a charming cottage, and only a short stumble to the local pub."
