  • "A beautiful location and comfortable cottage with everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday."

    Reviewed by JuliaOct 2021

  • "Lovely cottage in rural setting yet convenient to the coast and beautiful rural villages etc."

    Good facilities, welcoming and more than adequate in every way. The little wood burner was extremely effective. I was very happy

  • "The owners need to address the following: Milk and tea on arrival."

    Better signage to cottage at end of drive. Outside light not working. Flies in garden coming into the conservatory. Very hard towels in bathroom. Underfloor heating difficult to understand and control. I would have raised these issues with the owners on the day we left but no one was around to speak to.

  • "Lovely setting."

    Good location. But major problem with having no dustbin at the property. Apart from compositable vegetables there is no provision for the disposal of rubbish until the end of the visit when you should leave the bag from the very small pedal bin in the porch when you leave. So we were forced to take daily rubbish with us and look for car park bins. No instructions for some appliances which caused problems with unusual microwave. Poor lighting in conservatory and small soft bed.

  • "This cottage is beautifully furnished."

    The owner is a talented designer with a real flair for interior design which shows in the enormous attention to detail throughout the cottage. The location is perfect: very quiet, away from any main roads and with its own huge natural garden with a small pond and orchard and lots of outside seating which was great for eating out, as was the large attached conservatory which effectively doubles the size of the downstairs space. Perfect for a couple with a lovely bedroom and en suite bathroom. It’s also ideally located for exploring the Sussex Downs, the South Coast great destinations like Brighton and Rye, famous gardens like Sissinghurst and Great Dixter and numerous National Trust properties.

  • "Really sweet, lovely and clean cosy cottage in great quiet location - ideally placed for both coast and countryside."

    The Three Cups Inn mentioned as being within walking distance of the property is very close by but is no longer open which might be disappointing for some. It is also not clear when travelling to the property from the north (from Heathfield) that the building was a pub if using this as a landmark.

  • "A lovely cottage,very quiet and had a lovely conservatory to eat in."

    I did not use the wood burning stove but wood is available on site to buy. Kitchen was just right,very good wifi and the bedroom is so cute! As it was winter I did not sit in the garden but imagine in summer it must be idyllic.Not far from Heathfield town for shops.I did not have a car so used taxis when I needed to get about. The owner greeted me and afterwards unless I needed to ask anything( I didn't) was left in peace and quiet. Pretty lights in the conservatory and nicely decorated interior.

  • "Really good location for our planned visits in the area."

    With underfloor heating the cottage was always warm and comfortable, all the facilities were there to fulfill our needs. The nearby pub (app.200 yards) was very good and served us well. Access to the nearby PO in Rushlake Green also was a plus point.

    Wouldn’t stay there again.

  • "The cottage is an absolute delight."

    The fixtures, fittings and furnishings are of a high quality. The bathroom has an excellent shower and a heated towel rail, something which many cottages lack. The kitchen is adequate for 2 people and contains all the equipment you can imagine. The sitting room has comfortable seating and the conservatory is a joy to be in on a warm summers day. There are many places to visit nearby and a pub serving good food within easy walking distance. I recommend a visit to Wood Glen for a thoroughly enjoyable cottage break in tranquil countryside that cannot fail to be enjoyed

    Cottage perfect for a couple looking for a 'get away from it all' break. Lovely walks from the cottage. Great pub only a two minute walk. Plenty to do, close drive to a number of attractions.

  • "This cottage was perfect for a quiet break in November."

    Although the weather was bitterly cold the cottage was very warm and welcoming, infact I was reluctant to go outside on some days. It's location suited me as it enabled me to see a lot of East Sussex and the beautiful woods surrounding the area were stunning in Autumn. I would definitely like to visit here again as I felt totally relaxed from the minute I arrived.
