“Good...could be great!”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A good property in so many ways; very comfy beds, lovely light living room, useful downstairs toilet, lovely location, post office and pub just round the corner BUT there's definitely a cleaning issue throughout, particularly in the kitchen. The back garden is not as seen on the photo. It needs a good tidy up in order to enjoy sitting in it. Also, check with the owner beforehand if you are allergic to feather pillows/duvets. We did let the owner know about these issues and "they will bring to our cleaner's attention where necessary." If the cleaning issue is genuinely acknowledged and dealt with, we would consider booking again. Only on this basis would I recommend it to a friend.

We were genuinely surprised to receive criticism of the standard of cleaning, as we and most of our guests have found the standard of cleaning to be high. However, we have acknowledged the concerns expressed relating to certain items of cleaning and to the overall appearance of the garden.
As we renew items of soft furnishings we will address the issue relating to bedding. We hope that this will assist future guests and further improve their experience of staying at Fern Cottage.

“I love this place!”
Reviewed November 14, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had an extremely pleasant few days here. The cottage is charming, with an old-fashioned feel to it but also fully equipped with all mod-cons. It was clean and anything you could possibly need was provided.
The surrounding countryside in autumn was glorious and coming from Australia we revelled in the old world charm of nearby towns such as Rye and Winchelsea. Also, as Australians, we appreciated the nearby Chapel Down winery tour suggested by the owners. Many thanks to the owners of Fern Cottage for helping to make our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
