We met up with parents and stayed for two nights in this nostalgic cottage. It's roaring fire and homeliness helped make for a very enjoyable stay. In many ways, this is an idyllic location; you throw open the curtains on a morning to behold the stunning views of an equestrian centre. This was certainly a pleasant surprise - and it's little surprises like this that help recommend this cottage to those who want a quiet, picturesque escape from the pace of bothersome modern life
Moreover, Betty's cottage is nestled at the end of a old,bumpy road in the beautiful village of East Hoathly. If you want rural - this is it! The village itself provides excellent provision for basic needs with a comprehensive post office, a pretty decent pub and other amenities including a coffee shop and hairdressers.
I'm one of these who needs to de-tune and detach from the hustle and bustle of life. Even with two accompanying young daughters (sharing the same room) I slept soundly on a really comfortable double bed (with a single bunk for the youngest above me).. Put it like this: when she went for her usual for forage around the bedroom for missing "Blanky" at 3 o'clock in the morning, I wasn't disturbed in the least, such was the comfort I was experiencing: This is rare.
Many thanks to the owners for providing the perfect pre-Christmas retreat; they really do think about attentions to detail.
