A paradise for walkers, it also has the benefit of being 10 mins drive from Hastings Old Town with its famous fishing community, eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, beach and rail link to london and brighton. 15 mins in the other direction takes you to the beautiful clique port town of Rye and the white sand beach at Camber beyond.

About Karen Harrison

Our family bought the cottage four years ago,we love this area and we never tire of coming here. We all enjoy a shopping trip to Hastings especially my teenage daughter, as there are great vintage shops and a bargain can still be found!!! Fish and chips at 'Maggies' in an old fishermans hut is a must. (definitely the best we've ever tasted) . Rye is also a favourite this time with my younger son, as it has two old fashioned sweet shops to choose from, and an amazing church tower to climb. But for views you can't beat the cottage and I often find my self staring out of windows entranced..... On a clear night you can see the lights of France twinkling across the sea. Last but not least, 'Stanley'our dog is in heaven chasing rabbits along the cliff top, and the birds across the beach.

Amazing cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is easy to find. Its location is unique! Clifftop views from the French coast line over to Beachy Head. The master bedroom under the roof is great, as the sun wakes you up and the sunset lets you start dreaming. Inside you will find cozy rooms, exactly like you see on the pictures. We spend a relaxing week there and were blessed with sunny days and a cool breeze. One car can be parked in front of the cottage. The garden is beautifully located westwards and hosts a bench-table for 4. The welcome-gift was appreciated after a long journey. The wide land across the cliffs is just a step outside the cottage, where you can walk the unleashed dog.

It's truly a secret gem. We would like to come back asap, as we liked it so much! Thanks a lot for your hospitality, Karen!

Great walks and views

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely decorated cottage in a quiet location (little terrace of 4 coastguard cottages) by the cliff. Great views and walks from the house and a lovely cafe just up the road for a well earned breakfast! Pett Level beach definitely worth a visit - for fossil and dinosaur footprint hunting!

Wonderful cottage in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Approaching the cottage we thought we are totally wrong until we ended up on the very top of the cliff at a couple of small houses. One of the middle ones is this amazing cottage. The moment we entered it, we loved it. It is simply beautiful, cosy, tidy and just perfect. Karen put so much love in all the details, and there is everything you need to have a comfortable and relaxing vacation. Karen even thought about adapters for the electricity for people like us, who come form the continent, although we brought some of our own. We love cooking and found everything we needed. The weather was great, so we also made good use of the barbecue in the garden. From the rooms in the first and second floor you can see the sea, and my wife loved it to take a bath and enjoy this stunning view at the same time. The area is perfect for hiking and spending days out in the nature. But it is also only a few minutes drive to the next grocery shop. The wifi was of top quality, which was important for our daughter, and also our little dog enjoyed the stay. We spent ten very relaxing days in this wonderful cottage and are very open to return at another occasion. We can highly recommend this cottage and would like to thank Karen for her swift and efficient support while booking.

Perfect clifftop cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has the advantage of a fantastic location with views of the coast for miles front and back. However, the cottage itself is beautifully finished and furnished, and makes it easy to be at home straight away. All the information supplied and the little touches of bread, jam etc. just make for an excellent experience. Would love to come back sometime.
