Barefoot in the woods is a beautifully decorated safari tent, a very romantic space for adults only. The tent is secluded and hidden away with breath taking views over the Brede valley. This is self catering with all you need for a comfortable stay and for those who want a unique and peaceful experience. Welcome all year round due the large wood burner for cosy winter stays, ample free wood supplied.
“This is an absolute GEM of a place. The scenery alone is stunning, then add in the cosy, romantic (I think ideal for couples) spot in the woods and all the gorgeous finishing touches and you have yourself a truly perfect weekend. If you're on the fence... get off it. You will NOT regret booking barefoot in the woods and when the weekend is over, you'll rave about it to all your friends! The weather wasn't great when we were there but it made it all the more cosy. The fire never went out and we enjoyed doing all the camping-related fun bits without the actual camping <3”

“Just had a lovely stay in the Badgers Den. Would definitely return & recommend to others. The hosts had excellent communication, were friendly & thoughtful but not intrusive. Lots of lovely touches, such as putting the temp of the pool up as we had a baby, fruit & flowers on arrival, etc. The house was lovely, not large but plenty big enough for 4. The whole house inc. kitchen was well equipped. The single beds were upstairs & double downstairs, fine for 2 couples or slightly older children, we were also fine as husband went upstairs with 4yo & I stayed downstairs with baby. Both bedrooms easily big enough for the travel cot. Have to also mention the water pressure was fab, so I had a lovely hot power shower which was great. The pool was great, it was the reason we booked this house and we weren’t disappointed. Good size, temp & depth so we used it every day. Also a nice touch that there were inflatables & toys. Sadly we didn’t get to use the hot tub, it was a little distance from our holiday home so we didn’t feel comfortable leaving the kids for that distance. Would have been ideal if we didn’t have the kids with us though. Location was great, lots to do around Hastings so could easily stayed for longer than the weekend that we had. Thank you again for a lovely stay.”
Blackthorn is a luxurious retreat for two. Attached to the owner's home, and situated on the edge of Icklesham village, the property lies halfway between the ancient towns of Rye and Hastings. There is a distant view of the sea, and the garden is surrounded by beautiful AONB countryside. The cottage has a private, south facing verandah, and guests are welcome to use the heated, indoor swimming pool and outdoor hot tub throughout their stay but exclusively between the hours of 8.00am and 8.00pm.
“We found Blackthorn to be the perfect holiday haven for couple-friendly relaxation and sighsteeing along the Sussex coast. indeed i'd return happily to write away, or bring family and friends too. It's a beautifully-kept cottage with scenic balcony, jacuzzi and pool access, set in a tranquil landscaped garden surrounded by nature and the great outdoors. Listening to the timeless birdsong in the morning and taking in the stars from the jacuzzi were magical moments, as was simply relaxing with a roaring fire with good wine and scrabble. Local places well worth exploring are charming Winchelsea, picturesque Rye (Lamb house, the Mermaid Inn for Sunday lunch and Webbes Fish bar for an evening supper) and the more vibrant Hastings. We'd love to come back soon and leave where we left off, with more walks and possibly a local wine tasting/tour (we spotted many tempting local wineries whilst out and about!). Thank you Peter and family for having us to stay in your beautiful holiday home. You were the perfect hosts!”
