“Relaxing farm retreat”
Reviewed August 21, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We enjoyed a peaceful two week stay at the Apple Press with our two girls, filled with farm adventures. The farm provides plenty of space for the kids to enjoy themselves playing in the hay barn, collecting eggs and petting the cats.

The cottage offered all the comforts of home in a rural setting, and is also a good base for visiting the region. Tunbridge Wells, Brighton and Canterbury are all within driving distance and worth visiting. The cottage is decorated with care and Zoë's creative touch. We especially liked the framed quotes of local authors. We would love to come again.

Dear Pepijn and Geke,

Thank you so much for reviewing us on Trip Advisor. We're so pleased that Eatonden Manor Farm provided a homely base for you to visit Kent and Sussex and that the kids were kept happy and busy at the farm.

We hope to see you again. Warm wishes, Zoe

“Perfect wedding accommodation for Swallows Oast”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We booked both The Apple Press and The Hay Barn for our wedding accommodation, and it was perfect. Myself and my bridesmaids had a lovely evening in the hot tub the night before the wedding - I've definitely never been in a hot tub in a field of sheep before! There was plenty of space for us to get ready on the morning of the wedding. My new husband and I stayed in The Apple Press for the rest of the weekend, and enjoyed relaxing in front of the log fire after a busy day! Zoe and her family were very welcoming, and the cottages are decorated in a lovely quirky style.

“The ultimate relaxing retreat”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We booked this as a 10th wedding anniversary get away for the two of us. We were looking for a relaxing getaway in a peaceful county setting. I have to say we were not disappointed, in fact we loved it. The cottage was lovely, plenty of space and had all the necessary mod cons that you would expect. It also had its own, charm and character, including lots of quirky artwork decorating the walls and bespoke fixtures and fittings like the handmade cushions.

Set in the middle of the country-side, the setting was tranquil and simply beautiful. The rest of the farm was delightful and we made good use of the hot tub! On the Saturday afternoon, we followed one of the suggested walks across the country side and into the nearest village where we checked out some of the local ales!

We met Zoe and Jim who were both very friendly and helpful. All in all, it was the perfect weekend away and we would highly recommend it. We came away as a treat for just the 2 of us but we would also consider coming back with our 3 young boys as we’re sure they would love it too.

“Fun on the Farm”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We had a very nice midweek stay in the Apple Press at Eatonden Manor Farm with our twenty month old son. The accommodation was nicely presented with comfortable beds, a nice living area and well equipped kitchen suitable for cooking basic family meals. Nice touches included a shark child towel for our son, together with suitable plates, cups etc., he also loved playing with the toy tractor!

The Apple Press has a good size private garden area, but we were also free to explore the farm and our son enjoyed having chickens, ducks and pigs on our doorstep. The large field was also great for him to run around and made a nice change from city living.

Away from the farm we visited Bodiam Castle, the Kent and West Sussex Railway, Bedgebury National Pinetum, Drusillas and Camber Sands, all within a short drive.

“Lovely holiday in the apple press cottage with the warmest welcome from Zoë Davis and her family”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Enjoyed a lovely holiday in the Apple Press cottage! Zoë, Jim and the kids made us feel very welcome and right at home. The cottage is beautifully decorated, not only art by Sarah Lewis but also lovely Zobo Designs from Zoë Davis! Loved the produce from the veggie garden and of course gathering your own eggs.. our little boy loved it!
Beautiful surroundings, lots to see and do!

“Absolutly Wondeful!”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a truly delightful stay! I cant say enough good things about this place, I absolutely loved it! We were looking for a weekend away for my husbands birthday with our 18 month old son to escape from building works in our house and we could not have found a better place to relax and unwind. The drive was just over an hour from London and We stayed in the Apple Press which was stunning, immaculate and decorated to a very high standard with a high attention to detail. Everything we needed to have a wonderful weekend was there. Zoe and Jim are both lovely and so welcoming. We particularly liked being able to collect fresh eggs from the hen house for 'Daddy's birthday breakfast' which my son really enjoyed. Also great for Mums and Dads who don't want to cook but can't eat out in the evening was the Mobile wood fired pizza on offer in Ticehurst. A quick jump in the car, order the pizzas, go for a pint in the gorgeous pub next door and then back to the Apple press for a delicious dinner, with no washing up! The setting is also particularly idyllic and we were very sad to leave. We will definitely return and have recommended to all our friends and family!
