The property is fairly compact, bit quaint. It lends itself to an adult holiday, rather than a family holiday, there is limited wardrobe or drawer storage on the property, perhaps suggesting a short stay is advisable. The bathrooms were immaculate and the property was very clean, there were lovely fresh flowers waiting on arrival. The tennis court is a good asset to the property but is fairly untended and looks run down. The kitchen has basic provision, but does not lend itself to self catering. There was a lovely coffee machine, but it didn't work and there was no alternative caffeteire provision. To operate the TV one person had to stand one end of the lounge, whilst the other stood the other end, because the layout of the room blocked the signal from the controller to the TV box, perhaps demonstrating the property hasn't been tested for practical use.
We enjoyed our stay, we enjoyed playing Tennis with the kids and relaxing in the evening after a day in the fresh air.
We stayed at Pirate Lookout for three nights over New Years as a party of 6 adults. The house is in beautiful location, very peaceful and great views with coastal walks within minutes of leaving the property. We ventured out to Hastings for dinner on our first night which was less than £10 by taxi. The other nights we stayed in and cooked and the kitchen in the house is well stocked with most items needed to cook with. We did forget to bring one or two items which Cecilia did kindly bring over to us. The house has a good communal space and we felt we had plenty of room with 6 six adults, we had one person sleeping in the living room, three in the main bedroom and two in the downstairs double.
The road leading down to the house is a bit rough but I made it down and back a couple of times in my Vauxhall Astra with no damage so it is definitely do-able. The house has no phone signal (which for the most part is a good thing) but did make it very difficult ordering a taxi into town. But if you are more prepared you can book ahead or arrange something over the wifi.
All in all we had a great weekend and really enjoyed our stay at Pirates Lookout.
Spent 3 nights here as a family of 3 adults and 1 toddler; the cottage was near enough perfect for our needs. We had everything we needed provided by our hosts on arrival and the cottage was spotlessly clean. Bed and bath facilities were first rate; All in all, a very memorable stay indeed.
You can pretty much find everything you need for a stay-cation in the property and the massive balcony will be amazing for during the summer. I was there as a party of 3 but the property is definitely big enough for more people. Highly recommended and will definitely go back again!
Had an enjoyable weekend at the property. Excellent area for dog walking and very private and peaceful. My only criticism is the track leading down to the cottage is very narrow and bumpy. We had an SUV so were fine but for anyone with low profile tyres or low down chassis, i would advise extreme caution as potentially you could damage the underbody, exhaust etc of your vehicle.
