Reviews

We have had a lovely time here in Little Orchard. The accommodation is excellent, clean and fresh. We have felt very at home here. It has been a great base to stay in, allowing us visits to Rye, Bexhill and Bodiam Castle. We had mixed weather but we expected it for this time of year. We loved coming back and putting on the log burner. We would have loved to attend the fireworks on Saturday but the rain kept us away. We had 2 lovely meals at The Squirrels Inn near Battle on Saturday evening and a carvery Sunday lunchtime. We hope to return to the area and will definitely look to book this accommodation again.

Previous Customer,

Exceptional property, home from home. Extremely high standard of cleanliness and furnishings. We had an enjoyable family holiday, and the dog came too! Great woodland walks from the door, although the weather was too wet to attempt it, but it did not spoil our break. Easy to use website to book accommodation, with loads of information and true photographs. Would both use this company again and definitely return to this property.

Mrs Annette T,

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Beautiful decor throughout with everything you could ever need. The welcome hamper was the best we have ever received - thank you again for a wonderful holiday

mrs S H,

Wow, what a stunning home Little Orchard is. Beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The welcome basket was the best we have ever had. We were expecting a forecasted week of rain but the weather was surprisingly good. We visited Eastbourne, Rye, Battle, Herstmonceux Castle and Hastings - the old town is lovely with lots of cobbled streets with little roads and interesting shops and boutiques. Loved watching the girls ride the horses every day. Thank you once again for a lovely stay.

Past Customer,

We really enjoyed our stay at Little Orchard. Things we particularly enjoyed about the property were how nicely it was decorated with nice homely touches, loved the candles and toiletries, and the welcome pack. Dingo particularly enjoyed the walks in the woods and the dog stuff was very much appreciated as we have not had that before in dog friendly properties. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Amazing place with the most wonderful hosts.

Mr Peter E,

We stayed at little Orchard for Christmas and we've had a truly wonderful time. From the moment we walked in we felt we were at home. The owners are fantastic hosts and extremely welcoming. We went for loads of nice "muddy" walks in the area and made it to broomhill sands on Boxing Day ( the dogs loved it!). The house is amazing and the area is fantastic and we will definitely recommend Little Orchard to our friends and family. Note: We had a fantastic great time from M. age 6.

Family E,

We thank you for the wonderful time, which we were allowed to experience here. There was nothing missing and we felt safe and welcome. It is decorated with so much love. There was so much to discover and the environment is just adorable. Thanks for the wonderful days, we dill definitely recommend it.
