  • "Hop Cottage is a lovely holiday, 'home from home’."

    We loved the quirky design of the house and the cosy interior. The kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms are very comfortable. Zoe was helpful in providing instructions about the house and the local area. We are very glad we chose to stay at Hop Cottage. Three Oaks is also a peaceful and pretty area with lots of places to visit in East Sussex.

  • "We absolutely loved Hop House - it was perfect for 3 friends and two labradors - and somehow managed to combine wonderful coziness with complete practicality - we would definitely recommend it to anyone, and especially families with dogs, looking for a stress-free stay!"

    The location was quiet, and the enclosed garden was very spacious. We cooked in the well-equipped kitchen every night, and enjoyed relaxing in the living room in the evenings - and the beds were lovely and comfortable, too. Zoe (the owner) was great, and recommended some fantastic places to visit - our favourites were beautiful historic Rye, and Winchelsea beach.

  • "We had a lovely stay, a very comfortable place with a very well equipped kitchen."

    Zoe was on hand for support. We stayed for the Christmas holiday and the house was decorated lovely, a great tree and lots of cute little Christmas touches around the place. On arrival Zoe had left some essentials such as milk, eggs and mince pies, again a lovely touch. On arrival the cottage was lovely and warm and continued to stay warm though our stay. Good showers , lots of hot water. We didn’t really venture our much, it rained a lot but lovely to be so close to Rye and Hasting places we know well -we live in Brighton- so not far away! A couple of things that didn’t go so well for us, we couldn’t get any signal on TV but we had a amazon Fire stick and internet worked ok on all our d3vices. Also the single bed was very soft and bouncy so we had to put my elderly mum in one of the doubles as she tumbled out in the night, thankfully no major injuries! Would definitely recommend Hop House and would return for another stay.

    It had everything you need for a comfortable stay and the garden is just great for sitting out in & having afternoon tea - it's also nicely enclosed so dogs can wander about in safety. Would highly recommend staying here & with a super pub not far away it's definitely one not to miss!

  • "For most of the past 15 years our holidays have been in the UK and therefore we've experienced our fair share of self-catering properties."

    This has to rank amongst one of the best we've had the luxury of renting. Spacious yet cosy, well equipped and comfortable; decorated in a nice "country" fashion and with a lovely quiet enclosed garden for the dog - and to sit out in. During our week we were visited by a rabbit, a heron, a squirrel and even a fox (not all at the same time!) and it was a lovely base to return home to after our days out - or even to just sit around in and do nothing! The wi-fi was good enough for our boys (who are teenagers or almost) to be able to stream their favourite games and shows when they needed to. The location is beautifully quiet yet close enough to Hastings and the sea to not feel like you're in the middle of nowhere (though the small lanes and the speed at which some drivers use them was a bit of a challenge at times!) And the Three Oaks pub is well worth a visit - though a good idea to book at weekends and busy times. The only thing which would have made it even more perfect was if there had been some instructions on the various appliances - in particular the heating (which we did need on one evening).

  • "Hop House is a lovely house with a well-kept generous garden - perfect for two adults and three kids."

    The house was immaculately clean when we arrived. The kitchen was one of the best stocked for self-catering we've come across and the beds were amazingly comfy! Zoe and her dad were great hosts and made sure that we knew where everything was. Zoe even called the day after we'd arrived to check we were settled in and happy. The area is perfect, a short drive to all attractions - we did lots of hiking, swimming in the sea and enjoying the sunshine. Aldi is a five minute drive away. In all, we had a great time, thank you.

  • "Cottage is beautifully laid out with a real, appropriate uniqueness for all the pictures, ornaments, cushions that make for a special holiday."

    Location is ideal for country walks but close enough to Hastings for the necessary town stuff. Truly dog and child friendly. The only thing wrong was the fact we didn't book a second week.

  • "The cottage was perfectly located, warm, comfortable and well equipped."

    The owner met us on arrival, explained a few things and left a small welcome pack. Firewood was included which was a bonus when coming back after a day in the rain. The kitchen had everything we needed, the double beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for the great downstairs shower. I am 6ft 6in and, although the property has beams, they were not an issue for me. Highly recommended if you want a base for exploring south/east Sussex.

  • "Lovely house, and very comfortable."

    We and our greyhound, loved the garden. Were able to sit out, when the sun shone. Surrounded by open countryside, very pleasant to walk around. House inside, had everything we needed, plus Netflix on the tele. Nothing to criticise. Would have loved wider beds, as used to a super king, but the rooms, though lovely, might not be wide enough. Would certainly like to return. Well situated, for Hastings, Rye, and Camber Sands. Mad Monday, at the ThreeOaks, 2for1 meals.

The property

This beautiful cottage forms part of the oast house that stood in lush countryside in Three Oaks near Hastings.

The cottage has been transformed into a lovely holiday home where couples, friends and families can now enjoy time together in this peaceful location.

Immaculately presented throughout, there are three charming bedrooms, a bathroom upstairs and a wet room on the ground floor making this cottage the perfect choice for a family holiday.

The large, modern kitchen has all that you need to make it easy to prepare everything from a quick snack to a delicious dinner, so you can gather together around the table planning days out over breakfast, or catching up with the events of the day over an evening meal and a bottle of wine, perhaps from one of the two local vineyards.

Then settle down for a good night's slumber with only birdsong to disturb you from your beauty sleep in the morning.

On chilly days, the lure of the woodburning stove together with the deep, comfy sofas will have you settling down to relax the day away, or if you are holidaying in warmer weather then take a book, some sun lotion and settle yourself in the garden, sit back and drift away breathing in the country air.

From just outside your cottage in Three Oaks you will find numerous walks across fields and through forests, along twisted paths and into quaint villages.

The medieval town of Rye is close by as are the historic towns of Battle and Hastings, divided by only a few miles and joined together in 1066 history.

If you are looking for a home-from-home holiday experience, what could be better than a beautiful setting, a cottage full of character and a warm welcome?
