  • "Very nice cottage, all comfort was present."

    Just a small remark : the extraction hood in the kitchen was not very clean.

  • "We did enjoy our stay at Jasmine cottage , it was clean and comfortable, nice and warm too , In a beautiful setting ."

    We did experience a few issues as follows . 11 dead flys on bedroom floor on arrival . The Wi Fi was not existent , the just about managed to watch one movie on the Fire stick we brought .Our other devices all struggled unable to use them much at all . Tv remote not working batteries had corroded, Ginnie housekeeper quickly sorted this out thank you . Sound bar/box wasn’t working at all and tv sound very tinny such a shame . Shower door came off its runners , handy man was offered but never showed . No first aid box , veg peeler , or bottle opener . Like others we did experience noise travelling from next doors adjoining cottage , which distracted from this remote setting , not a huge issue as our neighbours very respectful .

  • "An excellent stay, with great facilities."

    When we had a problem with the sockets, our hosts simply sorted the cottage next door for us, so our holiday wasn't spoilt. The area is beautiful with many footpaths to explore and towns to visit.

  • "Shower had black mould all round bottom ."

    Garden furniture could do with an update and as it was very hot when we were there an umbrella would have been really helpful. Beds comfortable and good location. Garden not secure for small dogs.

  • "The garden furniture needs changing and updating the present garden furniture should be put on a bonfire."

    Though the floorboards creak when you move there is not a lot you can do about that . Also the rug in the entrance and the mat on the doorstep are threadbare and need replacing.

  • "The now notorious squeaky floor is good fun and means that people who ordinarily live in bungalows won't be worried about being burgled."

    Very comfortable and extremely quiet (we had quiet neighbours too). Gorgeous walks all around and many of the Jarrold walks within easy travelling distance. Both Tenterden and Rye are lovely towns - independent shops and big supermarkets at Tenterden and hours of interesting history at Rye. I'd stay there again.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jasmine, comfortable quiet location, the creaky floor has been well documented on the reviews but it didn't bother us, we would go back there again."

    Thanks for a lovely stay

  • "This is a gorgeous property in a beautiful setting, it is in very peaceful surroundings also."

    The house was clean and well outfitted for the most part, however, if I have any feedback it would be that the WiFi wasn't great, especially upstairs (1 bedroom you couldn't get it at all) and the tvs weren't smart tvs, i know it's a 21st century problem but i do think that people kind of expect these things nowadays. If you don't want those things though this place is so lovely and relaxing and close to a couple of lovely towns and some good eateries.

  • "Lovely stay in Jasmine plus lovely weather."

    A couple of points which could be rectified The toilet seat in the shower room was loose Seat around dining table could be reupholstered Either a plug point added near the mirror on the landing for a hair dryer or a mirror instead of the tv near a plug point Something done about the squeaky floor downstairs Otherwise all good and the towels lovely and soft and well equipped kitchen

  • "All good. Really lovely place to stay."

    Very quiet as no guests in adjoining property. Comfortable beds. Linen/ bedding was good. Well equipped. A few maintenance jobs need attending to ( for owner reference-toilet seats, outside decking area), but nothing that would put me off returning. We made use of the tennis court- great fun. Local walks- long and short. Great location for exploring area.

  • "Slightly tired in places ripped furnishings e."

    G. dining seats and one bedroom chair. Kitchen well stocked with utensils and very grateful for washing machine, although a drying rack would have been nice. We ended up using hangers and the hat stand braced over the empty plant pot. Shame about outside furniture, which was very tired. Parasol broken and unusable which was unfortunate in the 39c heat! Owners may want to take note and monitor the bonfire activity of the neighbours; during the period when fire brigade specifically asked people not to light anything and the news reported major fires and loss of property; the charred grass spreading from the bonfire site towards the hay barn outside the property shows how close it came to an incident! While we appreciate this is not owners fault in any way, it was an unsafe and irresponsible act which they should be aware of. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "It was very difficult to shut, unlock and lock the front door as it took a lot of effort to turn the key in the lock."

    An electric socket next to a mirror would be great for drying hair. Tv is just basic channels so a usb cable to plug a laptop into it would be really helpful for streaming Netflix etc.

  • "Jasmine Cottage is a comfortable And well equipped property."

    However I understand that the barn has recently been converted into 2 cottages. The soundproofing between the two properties is totally inadequate. Frankly in the kitchen/living space we might as well have been sitting in the same room as our neighbours in the adjacent cottage. We could hear everything they were saying and apparently they could hear us. Their dogs barked pretty often when downstairs. Luckily ours didn’t. I really feel the property needs to be properly soundproofed if it is going to be rented out as a holiday cottage. The outside garden furniture also needed cleaning

Both properties share access to the fantastic double tennis courts, with Jasmine Cottage boasting a woodburning stove and Honeysuckle Cottage offering ground-floor living with an elegant ground-floor four-poster bedroom.

From here, you can walk along the shoreline of Camber Beach or spend the day in the historical town of Hastings, home to ruins of a castle, a three-mile long seafront, unique double-decker promenade and the pretty Grosvenor Gardens, there is certainly plenty of things to do here. Keen walkers can look forward to exploring the number of walks in the area, including the four-miles long walk which takes in the famous sights of Battle Abbey and the 1066 battlefield or the five-mile walk beginning at Stonegate and taking you through villages, rolling landscapes and parklands.

About the location

IDEN

Rye 2.6 miles; Tenterden 8.9 miles; Hastings 15 miles.

Enjoying a countryside position in East Sussex and located just yards away from the border of Kent is the small village of Iden. The pretty village plays host to around 400 friendly residents as well as a welcoming pub, which serves food and real ale. The village, which overlooks the Rother Levels, also has a church, a hairdressers and a riding school, in addition to the village shop where you can pick up everything from dry cleaning to lottery tickets. As you meander through the village, you will discover the 15th century hall house ’Oxenbridge’ and is by far the oldest building, as well as many typical ‘Kentish’ style brock cottages branching off the main road, making this a truly charming location. With its location in the High Weald AONB, you can don your walking boots and explore the numerous footpaths and lanes taking you across the countryside and down to the Royal Military Canal. Slightly further afield is the small town of Rye, which is considered to be one of England’s best-kept secrets. This well-preserved medieval town hosts picturesque houses, cobbled lanes, ancient inns and a castle, which has a varied history with roles including defence, private home, prison, mortuary and now museum. Be sure to take the time to climb the castle tower to soak up the views over the town and out to the river Rother estuary before heading to the coastline to enjoy a walk along the beach. Camber Sands is located 6.5 miles away from the village and is a glorious two-mile stretch of sand dunes, plus opportunity for watersports. Also within driving distance is the seaside town of Hastings, where you will find ruins of a castle, a three-mile seafront and a town centre packed with amenities and things to do. With so much to do within the area, Iden makes a wonderful base for touring.
