A delightful cottage so quiet and peaceful.. Mrs Williams is lovely and so helpful nothing is too much trouble. When we arrived two lovely scones , a bottle of wine and milk were waiting for us. A lovely place to explore East Sussex from.

The photo on the website did not do it justice.. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the outdoor setting. We had a very hot week and it was fantastic to sit in the grounds and enjoy the shade and read. Mary was a very good host and nothing was too much troubled. We felt very welcomed and appreciated the kindness of the offer of BBQ and charcoal, plus the offers to swim in the pool.

A very comfortable studio style apartment with a good kitchen and shower room.. Ideal for a couple wanting a peaceful break. The garden has many varieties of birds and there are plenty of walks nearby. The host is on site but apart from the welcome and being available is not seen. An easy drive to a number of towns on the south coast. Our second time staying there.

We had the most comfortable and relaxing of stays at Standard Hill Cottage.. Mary was so very welcoming and we really enjoyed her scones, wines and chats. The cottage was very spacious and cosy having everything we needed for our six night stay, and the bed was large and very comfortable. The gardens were beautiful and I greatly enjoyed watching the busy squirrels gathering their nuts and as well as the visiting pheasants. We also enjoyed our walks down the lane and through the chestnut woods. Standard Hill Cottage is perfectly positioned for easy day visits to so many sites of interest such as Battle for the Abbey and the Battle of Hastings, Scoutney and Bodiam Castles, Rudyard Kipling's Jacobean home and Sissinghurst Castle's beautiful gardens, to list but a few.

My wife and I needed to get away after the busy Christmas period and be near family so we chose Standard Hill Cottage. The property is tucked behind the main building and there is amply parking for the car. It is a two person studio apartment with an excelllent shower room and toilet and a nice size kitchen. As soon as we walked in we felt at home and the owner was kindness herself with gifts of eggs, bread, milk and a bottle of wine for us. The apartment was really cosy and we were able to spend time relaxing there. We hope to return again this year after Christmas.

The cottage was comfortable and had views across the garden and the fields beyond.. There were plenty of heaters ensuring that, although it was really cold outside, it was beautifully warm. There is a walk on an uneven path from where the car is parked which is lit at night. It is somewhere that we have put on our list to return.

We have stayed at Standard Hill Cottage before and enjoyed it so much we returned.. Mrs Williams is so warm and welcoming and the cottage is equipped with everything you could wish for, it's ideal for a couple. The cottage has wonderful views over the garden and is very peaceful. We will certainly be back.

A calm, comfortable and stylish interior, plus friendly kitchen and smart bathroom.. A very friendly welcome from the owner Mrs Williams, plus milk and wine and pastries to get us started. A great sweep pf garden leading down a track to a bluebell wood. Altogether an atmosphere of peaceful contemplation. Glorious in April, we hope to return in other seasons.

With hindsight, booking a converted outbuilding for the coldest week for years with temperatures barely going above freezing when the "Beast from the East" arrived, was probably not the best choice.. But we survived. The cottage was well insulated with secondary glazing to stop any drafts and although there was only electric heating we were not cold. When out, the sun shone through the large windows and sitting inside watching the sunset was beautiful. The owner had wisely gone on holiday to somewhere much warmer and left a relative in charge. They checked we were OK in the extreme conditions and would have provided anything extra we needed. We left a couple of days early to ensure safe travel home and because the places we'd liked to have visited were closing due to the extreme weather. The cycling and walking we'd like to have done was also not going to be pleasant. We'll probably return in better weather to do the things we'd missed out on. In normal weather I'm sure the cottage would be very pleasant.

My partner and myself stayed here over the Easter weekend. The owners made us feel very welcome, wine , tea , coffee etc all there along with fresh eggs!!! They were extremely helpful without being intrusive. Grounds are gorgeous, luckily weather was lovely the first day so we could benefit from it. Would definitely recommend it and visit again.

A surprisingly spacious small cottage with lots of light and a great view. A great place to come back to.
