Many thanks for your review Kellie, I was a little surprised about the kitchen and so had a chat to ask you and you explained it was the food storage that was the issue. I explained that apart from the larder fridge and freezer there is a separate pantry with plenty of storage, (I will let people know in the instructions incase they too do not realise what is behind that door) I would like to add a few reviews we have received from other sites where we have been hosting for some time which mention the kitchen:
‘From the moment you set eyes on this beautiful house. You feel at home. All the bedrooms are lovely and comfortable. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. A lovely welcome pack when we arrived.
Just one problem, we weren’t there for long enough. The weekend wizzed by much too soon.’
‘A beautiful house with a warm, homely feel. The owners have thought of everything, the kitchen has all the equipment you could possibly need. There are board games and outdoor games to suit every age and taste. The house and furnishings are beautiful and the location excellent. We enjoyed a lovely day in nearby Brighton and a walk around the local area.We loved looking out over the beautiful gardens. We would thoroughly recommend this as a wonderful holiday retreat and would like to return ourselves one day. We also appreciated the welcome pack of local cheeses, cake and wine. Thank you for a lovely, memorable, happy weekend.’
‘We used the cottage for a family celebration weekend and it proved to exceed our expectations. The weather meant we could be outside most of the time enjoying the large garden and all the lawn games including all weather table tennis. The large adjoining field was perfect for rounders and a large outside table made a perfect breakfast/lunch spot with BBQ. Plenty of indoor games too should they be needed.
We were going to explore the area around the cottage but as my sister said 'it is too nice here to go anywhere else' so we didn't!
But for the hostess the kitchen was just right and refrigerator large enough for all the beer, wine, champagne and food for 10. Beds comfy, views to the garden lovely and each couple had their own en suite which meant we all felt unhindered by 'queues'!
A welcome pack of goodies by Ruth and her care and her care and attention was absolutely in character for a wonderful stay.Thoroughly recommend the cottage we were sad to leave.'
