Overview

Cottage
Peace and quiet in the Sussex countryside is the emphasis here while the beaches and historic towns are only a few minutes away. This is also beautiful walking countryside whether in woodland, by the coast, along the river Rother or the beautiful Brede valley. Rarely can one walk through orchards, vineyards and hop fields in the same afternoon! Local towns and villages of interest include Rye, Hastings, Tenterden, Bodiam (castle), Battle (1066) and Winchelsea (the smallest town in England). Both cottages (Anna & Louis) comprise a double bedroom, kitchen / dinning-room / lounge and a bathroom with shower. All rooms are appropriately equipped and fully furnished. Pets welcome

5* stay - can’t wait to return!
We had a lovely time. It was so clean - which was reassuring in these times! It had all the amenities we could need in a self-catered stay. It was modern and freshly decorated, and we can’t wait to return!

Wonderful stay at Holmdale cottages
We had a wonderful stay in Louis at Holmdale cottages. Raphaele is a lovely host she goes above and beyond to make your stay special. This is the cleanest place we have stayed at and all the little extras make your stay more welcoming. It’s an ideal place to just chill out with a lovely courtyard to sit in.

We love it so much we go as often as possible!
Louis cabin in Rye is situated in a quite, beautiful picturesque area, filled with lots of greenery, rabbits and horses. Raphaele is always so welcoming and friendly and will do whatever she can to ensure you have a relaxing stay. The cabins are clean and airy with a cosy feeling. They have all the essentials you would need such as a TV, fridge, wifi, a comfy bed and cooking facilities. The cabins location is near Jempson's supermarket which has all your essentials and more. Rye village is a 5 minute drive away with parking available. The village has confectionery shops, cafes, a cinema and lots of antique shops. Hastings is a 30 minute drive away and offers parking and a variety if stores to shop in. Camber sands is a lovely beach which takes know more than 10 minutes to drive to. I look forward to my next stay at this amazing and peaceful place.

Perfect Place For Quiet Get Away
Stayed here from just after Christmas to early January 2020. Location is quiet and off the beaten track so if its seclusion you want this is a great place. Raphaele is always there to greet you and have a welcoming chat upon arrival, she will also go out of her way to accommodate you and fix any issues that may occur. The cabin was spotless freshly cleaned upon arrival. Heating control is great so the temperature in the cabin is never uncomfortable Internet connection is good and you have the option of Wi-FI or a cabled connection for your internet-connected devices. The bedroom is spacious with ample storage space for anyone's needs and Bed are very comfortable and is like sleeping on a cloud! You have small but very stocked kitchen will all essential tools you will need to cook in the cabin and the fridge is always stocked with milk and water when you arrive. This is one of my favorite getaway spots to get out of London and relax.

The most perfect place to stay we loved it!
We stayed here as a central location to other areas we wanted to visit. Upon arrival Raphael was there to meet us and show us around our cottage. There was a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine for us to enjoy. Everything about the cottage was perfect. It had everything we needed. Raphael said to contact her if we needed anything. She was very cordial and gave great dining recommendations. We plan on returning in the future. Please don’t change a thing!

Perfect two night break
An amazing find. The accommodation is so clean and has everything you need and a delightful private courtyard style garden. Raphael is so friendly and left us chocolates, wine milk etc and provided advice on where to go, how to get there. If anything these apartments should cost more And i certainly would pay it. Myself wife, daughter and dog loved it and we will return. I can’t speak highly enough of these cottages. A small slice of paradise.

Just perfect!
Raphaele is the perfect host! I contacted through TripAdvisor with a question, before booking, and Raphaele responded almost instantly and invited me to book our stay at Holmdale Louis. Travelling with 3 dogs can be tricky, as often there is a 1 or 2 pet limit on stays, but Raphaele was happy to welcome us all. I am so glad we stayed here, Raphaele was great right the way through, from calling us to ensure we knew exactly how to get there, welcoming us on arrival and checking on us during our stay. She is a great host and very welcoming - big thanks for the wine and chocolates which we thoroughly enjoyed! We stayed here for 2 nights (3 adults and 3 dogs!). Holmdale Louis is small but perfect. There is a double bed and a double sofa bed, both were comfortable. The bathroom is lovely - super hot and powerful shower! The kitchen is well equipped - Raphaele has thought of everything and made such good use of the space. The cottage is lovely and spotlessly clean! We were provided with bedding and towels, as well as miniatures of shampoo and shower gel! There were some games in the bedroom too, which we did play with our wine! There is a big field behind the cottage, which was perfect for us to get the dogs out every now and then (although we also visited some great beaches!). Raphaele gave us walking directions to a nearby pub where we stopped for a drink during our dog walk. The cottage is in a great location, although a car is recommended! A short drive into Rye town (which is very dog friendly and has some lovely pubs). Thank you Raphaele for a lovely stay - we hope to be back one day! Jess, Catherine, Dave, Ronnie, Ruby & Elsa x
