It is ideally situated for walkers, with many footpaths accessible from the door. The Old Cricket Pavilion is reached by a private lane leading only to the cottage itself and the adjacent farm. It overlooks open countryside from every aspect, with views of vineyards from the lounge. It is part of a working farm, so it is possible that livestock will be grazing in the field behind the cottage on occasions throughout the year. There is a large play area about a 10 minute walk (or 3 mins in the car)from the pavilion up our private drive exclusively for guests staying at our cottages, with swings, slides and tyres to climb, also goal posts so bring your football !!! Please email the owner if the date you are looking for is not available as we have 4 brand new properties that will be available from May 2015.

It's Brilliant !!
We have now stayed here 3 times and will be back very soon. It's great with everything you need inside. Local walks straight past the door, very quiet and a pub at the end of the lane !!! Love it. The welcome cake is fantastic - only wish they gave you a goodbye cake to bring home :)

A wonderful detached cottage with no neighbours set in farmland.
This two bedroom self catering cottage is truly a gem. Situated along a drive behind the Castle Inn in Bodiam, Secluded and very quiet. Converted to a very high standard with a double bed and two single beds. The owners have included everything you could wish for including a secure and grassed area outside overlooking farm land. You look towards the river and the Kent and East Sussex steam railway. Just a short walk to the local pub (great food) and Bodiam Castle NT. Off road parking for two cars. Terrie and Sharon who look after the cottages are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. On arrival we found home made cake, jam, milk, bread and butter. Washing up liquid, washing liquid, dishwasher tabs, and a well appointed kitchen. The bathroom has shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. We look forward to returning again.

Simply the best!
This is such a lovely place to stay. A really great location in a beautiful, peaceful spot. The accommodation is extremely light, spacious and comfortable and fully equipped with everything you could want. The private garden is a great place to relax and the views are lovely. This was not our first visit here and it won’t be our last, we have already rebooked. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a little piece of heaven on earth. Thank you Terrie and Sharon you are the perfect hosts.

We'll be back
We've stayed in Coopers Cottages for a few years now and love it. This year, we booked into The Old Cricket Pavilion. It was a lovely break. Walks straight from the front door which our little dog loved - and already misses. The OCP is a good size and very comfortable and if you have a dog its ideal as it has an enclosed garden overlooking fields. It's also just a short walk to the pub! We've already booked again for next year.

There is everything you need for your holiday in the Cottage and the very warm welcome from Sharon and Terrie is second to none. The location of the Pavillion is wonderful. We certainly will be revisiting the Pavillion. Thank you Sharon and Terrie

Lovely pet friendly cottage (Pavilion)
We have just returned from a 3 night break with our 2 dogs. We have stayed here before and loved it so much we booked again. Beautiful peaceful place to stay. We had the cows in the field and loved watching them. Terrie popped by to make sure we were all ok. We had a welcome basket which had a lovely homemade cake, butter, milk, bread, butter, jam, eggs and tea, coffee & hot chocolate. Thank you. See you again in 6 weeks.

About the neighbourhood
Bodiam is a small village boasting a magnificent castle with moat and grounds. Visitors on foot are welcome to wander through the grounds and around the castle and are usually admitted free to the many events that are held here throughout the year. However, there is a small charge to go into the castle itself. The River Rother runs through the village and in peak season a ferry operates from Bodiam Castle to Northiam. The castle is run by the National Trust and has a tea room and giftshop. The Castle Inn offers a warm welcome and serves a wide range of excellent food. The KESR station that is visible from the cottage hosts many events incuding The Hop Pickers Weekend. Visitors can also go from Bodiam to Tenterden by steam train. Tenterden is a charming old market town and offers a wide range of shops.
