Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at The Highlands. My elderly parents particularly enjoyed it as they were able to access everything easily having the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The house was comfortable and family friendly and we were lucky to have good weather and take advantage of the use of the tennis courts and the lovely sheltered garden. We would definitely consider returning to this property and have already recommended it to several friends.

Thank you

Iden is a pretty and picturesque village with a pub renowned for its food, and post office/general stores within an easy walk of the house. The historic town of Rye, one of the Cinque ports, is less than 3 miles away with its charming winding lanes, interesting harbour and the wonderful sandy beaches of Camber Sands beyond. Rye boasts some excellent restaurants, a weekly Farmers market, and a range of local shops including world famous Rye pottery. The house is well placed, between Hastings (10 miles) Tunbridge Wells (15 miles) and Tenterden (8 miles). The castles of Battle and Bodiam are also within easy reach. Ashford is 15 miles to the north with its International Station for a quick trip to France.

The Hythe to Dymchurch Light Steam Railway is also well worth a visit as it winds its way from Dungeness to Hythe all along the coast - take a picnic and stop off on the way!

Beautiful house for a big group

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a surprise 50th weekend away. It was in great condition, really clean and a very well stocked kitchen. Wish we had have been there in the summer to utilise the gorgeous garden, bbq and tennis court! Thanks for having us :)

Great property in a quiet but convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed there. The house is v well laid out with 5 good size bedrooms and good size sitting and dining rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped so great for those who like to cook. The tennis court is well maintained and the garden is spacious and good for croquet and other games.

Lovely Property but....

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely time at the property and particularly enjoyed the garden and tennis courts as we spent a family weekend celebrating a diamond wedding anniversary. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom facilities were perfectly adequate for our needs. However, some of the furniture in both the house and garden is now a little tired and in need of upgrade in terms of both comfort and safety.

Beautiful house in Rye

  • 5 of 5

Ideal property for a family break. The house was lovely with plenty of character, and situated in a quiet road. There were 3 generations of us with 2 dogs. Plenty of room and everyone loved the Jacuzzi. We all enjoyed playing tennis on our own court! We didn't get a chance to use the garden much, as we were only there for a weekend, but it's a great space for barbecues and the dogs loved the space to run around. Will definitely return, hopefully for a week next time.
