Fantastic place in a great spot; we loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had at a great stay at Pixies Croft. A very original and quirky place which suited us and our dogs beautifully. The terraces and garden are an added bonus; being fully dog proof. A very relaxing place to be. The Hastings Country Park at the end of the road lets you walk along the cliff and has wonderful views.

Beautiful family Christmas break.

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a family of five with 2 small dogs. Our arrival on Christmas Eve was met with the surprise of a decorated Christmas tree - a lovely touch for our children who were a little concerned as to where Father Christmas would put the presents!

The beds were very comfortable, the roll top bath a luxury at the end of the day and the kitchen had all the necessary equipment including a dishwasher with detergent.

The layout is well designed with screens and well placed furniture to accommodate a family, despite there not actually being separate bedrooms.

The location is idyllic with views over the country park, and to the sea. There is also access to the private meadow where we were able to walk our dogs and see the pigs and sheep.

The outside terrace was perfect for the dogs with a gate at the bottom so that they were safely enclosed when let out at night. We had fantastic weather and were even able to eat lunch outside on the terrace in Boxing Day!

We couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay whilst visiting nearby family for Christmas. We definitely hope to return again in the future.

Holiday Hideaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had our mini moon stay in this cottage recently and had a fantastic stay. Property is a very restful spacious place, immaculately cleaned, well maintained and fitted with all the amenities you could want. The Pirates Lookout offered fantastic sea and cliff views. Very secure fenced in property which we really appreciated with our young dog. Would recommend to all, to be honest we didn't want to come home!

Delightful spot well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location, previous comments about the access road are fully justified but we did'nt have any problems with our new Honda Jazz providing you drive slowly. We live in an rural location and are used to bumpy roads but accept that some city dwellers would be wary of the road surface

Fantastic views across open countryside towards the sea

Unique hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice property . Clean and tidy . Very well equipped . Peaceful

Location .


Qwerky interior . Lovely bathroom

Would visit again

One difficult area to navigate was the lane leading to the property it is deeply rutted and wouldn't suit all types of vehicle .

But overall a great break

An absolutely fabuolous cottage... Perfectly peaceful with stunning views of hills and sea!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Pixies Croft for the bank holiday weekend! What a beautiful little cottage... With fabuolous decor the owner had made the best of quite a small space. The main sleeping area was delightful, comfy and very tastefully decorated. Bathrooms were beautiful! Just a small lounge/dining area but perfect for the two of us with our dog. The kitchen was so well equipped.

The private garden, patio and balcony were lovely with furniture for us to use. The sun shine through out our weekend and we had breakfast on the balcony watching the shimmering sea in the distance each morning. So many walks in our doorstep so if you have a dog it's ideal. Location is great & we ventured off into beautiful Rye which is very close by.

The owner was great, provided a few extras which made a difference in our arrival... We'll

Most definitely return to this fabulous little hide away!!

Fairlight is a coastal village in East Sussex under 2 hours from London, Heathrow & Gatwick airports, under one hour from Folkstone & Dover and less than half hour from Rye, Battle and Hastings. The cottage is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with extensive country & sea views at the door step of the huge coastal National Country Park. Canber Sands and Winchelsea beaches are nearby. Take a walk through Battle Castle, the fire hills of Hastings, or the winding cobbled lanes of Rye. Just across the border of Kent is Tenterden, a town of elegance and has the attraction of the Chapel Down Winery. There are lovely villages and stately homes and gardens near by such as the world famous Sissinghurst Castle, Great Dixter and medieval Bodiam Castle. Take a picnic using the Kent & East Sussex Railway pulled by steam locomotive through the beautiful country side. Unwind the day in the tranquil environment of the cottage with its private meadows, gardens, terraces.
