My sister had fallen and injured 3 slipped discs in her back which prevented her driving. We were due to stay at Knelle Dower, so she wrote to Bettina asking for advice and heads up on local taxis and eateries and shops. A most extraordinary email came back. I quote from it. " I am not quite sure if, given...

Edited like this my email sounds indeed negative. You completely omitted my explanation about our remote location and why it unsuitable accomodation without a car. You also omitted the information I sent you about train connections from London and the links to local taxi companies. A list of restaurant was already sent to you as part of our welcome pack...

There is nothing we could even think of changing. From booking the studio to check out, we couldn’t have been more impressed with the service. The studio was so welcoming and had everything we needed and more. From the super-king bed to the fluffy towels, every little detail was thought about. We didn’t want to leave. The studio was clean,...

This was a wonderful place to stay! Bettina and Jonathan were very welcoming and helpful. The Studio was lovely, very spacious, with a very comfortable bed and gorgeous views. It also had a very good WiFi connection. The breakfast was fantastic: not only delicious, but large enough to last until dinner. The Knelle Dower Studio B&B gets my highest recommendation...

Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary. The studio exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed plus amazing views. Bettina and Jonathan were excellent hosts who not only provided an excellent breakfast both mornings, but couldn't do enough to help us with places to visit and local knowledge!!!

We stayed for a two night weekend in early December. The 'cabin' which is not far from the main house, (which is stunning), is situated with a lovely view over countryside. For better weather the cabin has a small deck and chairs to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. The cabin is nicely fitted out with a bathroom and...

Absolutely gorgeous accommodation which would be ideal in summer or winter. Completely secluded with luxurious finishes and lovely hosts who will cater for your every need. It's a 10-15min drive (£15-20 cab) from Rye town centre where there are some great restaurants, cafes and boutique style shops. A great weekend!

Thank you, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry the taxi was expensive, the Bonfire season keeps them very busy and slight premiums are charged at night. However it didn't dampen your enjoyment, Rye really is a lovely place to explore.

We had a lovely time in a beautiful peaceful property over looking farm land. Property was tastefully furnished and everything was spotlessly clean. We would most definitely be returning in the future.... thankyou Bettina & Jonathan.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Knelle Dower Studio is a detached Studio B&B nestled into the secluded grounds of Knelle Dower a 15th century timber-framed Tudor building. Reached by its own driveway, the Studio is completely self-contained, quite a distance from the main house and totally private, giving our guests the flexibility and total freedom of their own space. With its chic interior design combining a traditional and contemporary style, the Studio offers an open plan bedroom with a super king sized bed dressed with fine Egyptian cotton, as well as a light and airy living area, all housed under a vaulted, beamed ceiling. All mod cons are included: a Nespresso coffee machine, luxurious linen and towels, a widescreen Freeview TV and fresh milk and soft drinks in the fridge, to name but a few. On a sunny evening, guests can enjoy stunning local views on the terrace. And, of course, look forward to a home-booked breakfast each morning. Located near the medieval town of Rye, Knelle Dower Studio attracts visitors from around the world. Trips to Great Dixter Gardens, Pashley Manor and Sissinghurst Castle, as well as the stunning beaches of Camber and Wilchelsea are an enjoyable way to while away a few hours and are within easy reach. ... more   less
