With our second visit being at a different time of year, it has given us a new experience: beautiful sunny days, glorious autumn colours and leaves falling as the first frosts of winter arrived. We have put our N.T. memberships to good use, and returned “home” to enjoy a cosy evening by the log fire. Thank you for the never ending supply of wood and such a generous welcome hamper. Once again we have been blessed by our time spent here. Thank you.

Thank you for our second lovely stay here. We love all the views around the house. And there is so much to do around here. This time we tried Go Ape at Bedgebury Pinetum (which we all enjoyed) and our son tried dry-slope skiing for the first time (which was a great success). We also enjoyed visiting the Lighthouse Bakery in Ticehurst and swimming in Weald. The walk to the lake and around (just a little bit…for us) was also lovely. Today we are off to Battle to visit the site of the Battle of Hastings. It has been wonderful to have such a comfortable base from which to do all this and relax in the evenings. Thank you!

The G Family, London

We have really enjoyed our stay in the Oast House - trips to Rye, Tunbridge Wells, Herstmonceaux and the De La Warr Pavillion at Bexhill, then back to curl up in front of the log burner or walk to the Bull for a delicious meal. It is so peaceful and lovely to see so many stars and hear the hooting owl. One suggestion - a grab rail in the shower. Mum who celebrated her 87th birthday here, would have appreciated one.

Owner response: I have looked at this but the shower and bath controls are on the wall where one would put a grab rail and so sadly it’s not possible.

Beautiful and comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We had a wonderful stay and a chance to drink lovely wine with old friends by a blazing fire as well as re-visiting some favourite sites. Thank you - we will be back.

A very clean and comfortable oast house! Vey clean and well equipped. Lucky with the weather for visits to Hythe Dymchurch et Steam Railway. Visited Rye, Hastings and Eastbourne. Interesting NT visit to Chartwell and Quebec House and also Bodiam Castle. Walked from the oast to Bewl Water. Thrilled to have a green woodpecker perched under the pear tree on fence one morning!!

Thank you for a lovely stay in this absolutely beautiful house for Emma’s wedding. It was the PERFECT house to relax in when getting ready and the most stunning setting for bridal prep. We can’t wait to see the photos! We will definitely come back to this beautiful place.

C and friends, Hove, - London and Lewes
14 September 2017
A very comfortable and well equipped conversion in a historic, beautiful and peaceful setting. Especially loved the kitchen and the pear-eating sheep outside. It’s a great location for visiting lots of interesting places, and the weather, whilst fresh, has been largely dry with plenty of sunshine.
Thanks Angela and Nick for providing such a lovely place to stay.
Mr and Mrs B - Warwickshire
5 September 2017
Fabulous and relaxing - only sheep bleating in the background. Such a cosy little place with great accommodation and well equipped. Extremely clean and tidy. No real complaints and hard to fault - only suggestions are maybe more lamps/candles in the living area, napkins, pillows were a little soft - but nothing detracted from a lovely stay and would certainly come again!! Thank you.
Mrs C - Surrey
4 September 2017
What a lovely place, so clean and bright. We all loved it. The kitchen is beautiful, beds ever so comfortable! We had such fun. We would highly recommend Bakers Farm Oast to all!!

31 August 2017
A wonderful place for a short break in this lovely quiet corner of Sussex. We have enjoyed every moment. If you like gardens we recommend Pashley Manor, just a short distance away. Inevitably, we want to come back!
Mr and Mrs W, and Mrs E - Surrey  
27 August 2017
Our promised second visit. Balm for the soul no less. All has been a joy - sheep eating pears, (or other way around), arty photos of fencing and shadows. The whole place is so very easy to live in - a delight for the senses and the mind. We loved it. Thanks for providing a sensational environment.

JR & TO, Nottinghamshire
21 August 2017
A very well appointed cottage in such a peaceful setting. Loved looking at the wildlife and sheep. Lots of great and interesting places to visit. Pashley Manor Gardens the best. Good Waitrose at Hawkhurst. Welcome hamper very much appreciated - thank you.

Dr and Mrs C, Scottish Borders
12 August 2017
Fantastic holiday. Bakers Farm Oast has set the standard for any future holiday accommodation. A beautiful place to stay. Everything as described, and everything worked! Great location, so many places to to visit within easy reach. Lovely meals at The Bull and The Bell. Thank you Angela for such a warm welcome and the new bench!

Mr and Mrs M, Liverpool

Angela, thank you for a relaxing visit to your lovely oast. We enjoyed this peaceful place.

Mr and Mrs S, Rostock, Germany
8 July 2017
Thanks you so much Angela and Nick - we have had a wonderful stay in this lovely oast - everything was perfect, including the weather. Loved the baby rabbits mad hour just as the sun is setting and the busy squirrels scrumping the pears. If you sit under the hazel tree, be warned! The debris under the tree is their work!! We got lazier and lazier, so I guess we’ll just have to come back and explore the area! Fabulous!!
Mr and Mrs S, Yorkshire
26 June 2017
Another fabulous stay at Bakers Farm Oast to celebrate one year from when we stayed here for our wedding, though this time with our 5 week old baby girl! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Mr and Mrs P - Kent
16 June 2017
This is our second visit to your beautiful and pristine property. Again we have had beautiful weather (is it always hot and sunny here?). Thank you for the lovely hamper and the delicious strawberries you so kindly picked for us. We also went strawberry picking before we left for home. Don’t be surprised if you see us again next year! (My sisters were very impressed).

Mr and Mrs N, Cornwall
14 June 2017
We loved the pictures of Bakers Farm Oast from the minute we first saw it available on Rural Retreats, and so pleased to have had the opportunity to visit for a birthday celebration. It definitely lived up to our expectations. We would welcome the chance to come again as location and things to do are just brilliant - and not too far for us too!
Thank you, and hope to see you again.

Mr and Mrs F, and Mr and Mrs B, West Sussex
2 June 2017
This is our second visit and it was every bit as idyllic as our original stay last June. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you would need. We spent many happy hours relaxing in the sunshine on the patio with the gorgeous view. Places we recommend to visit: Bewl Water, Scotney Castle, Pashley Manor Gardens, Sissinghurst, Bodiam Castle and Bateman’s. We also enjoyed dinner at The George in Robertsbridge and lunch at The Greedy Goat Cafe in Ticehurst. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

25 May 2017
We have once again had a lovely few days here. We enjoyed the wildlife with squirrels, jackdaws, woodpeckers and a glimpse of a badger in the dusk. When the pace of life is so accelerated, there is a need for spots like this, where you can unwind and slow down.

L&P, Northamptonshire
20 May 2017
We had a really enjoyable stay. Bakers Farm Oast is a perfect place to stay, of a high standard and a lovely location. Really clean, and everything here that you need.

Mr & Mrs P and Mr and Mrs A, Dorset and Hertfordshire
14 May 2017
We had a fantastic stay in the beautiful property - it was so relaxing and immaculately clean! Recommend Bewl Water, but be prepared for the 13 mile walk (takes about 4 1/2 hours) - our legs are recovering today.
Thank you for such a lovely weekend.

The C Family, Kent
12 May 2017
Beautiful location, house spotlessly clean.
Very relaxing….had we not had a 2 1/2 year old to run around after!
The S family, Buckinghamshire
4 May 2017
We have been coming since 1988 once or twice a year to Great Britain for holiday, and we discovered here one more beautiful cottage. We shall certainly be back here.
We enjoyed a lovely time in this well-kept and nice cottage in a magnificent location. We visited Batemans, Battle Abbey, Bodiam Castle, Scotney Castle, Great Dixter, Pashley Manor Gardens, and have great walks to Bewl Water and in Bedgebury Pinetum.
Thank you.

Mr & Mrs S, Switzerland
21 April 2017
A fantastic property in a beautiful setting. Gorgeous hamper. Beautiful National Trust properties nearby in their full spring glory. Thank you so much.
The T family, Somerset
13 April 2017
Spent a wonderful few days in this comfortable Oast in an idyllic setting. Amazing wildlife from the window - rabbits, morons, woodpeckers and a badger!
So much to do in the area we were spoilt for choice! Fantastic boat trip from Bodiam Boating Station to Bodiam Castle, hired bikes at Bewl, visited the beautiful Scotty Castle, Rye (highly recommend The Fig for brunch), the wild Rye Nature Reserve, of course Battle (great exhibition, film, Battle walk), plus of course great walks from the Oast to Bewl, Ticehurst, and the obligatory early evening drinks at The Bull!!

Mr and Mrs D, Bristol
6 April 2017
Luxurious and peaceful. Oast House PERFECT! Thank you.

Mr and Mrs C, Bedford
3 April 2017
A fantastic property, we’ve stayed at many Rural Retreats properties and this is up there with the best! So peaceful with lovely views, yet near good pubs and places to visit. We hope to come back again. Thank you!

Mr and Mrs P, Cambridge
1 April 2017
Thanks for a fantastic stay in such a peaceful home from home. Great location for walking, National Trust properties and historic towns. Walked Bewl Water (13 miles). Visited Batemans, Knowle, Chartwell and Bodiam Castle (all NT). Bedgebury Pinetum also great for a walk or bike ride in a beautiful setting. Ate at The Bull Inn (good hearty pub food), and The Bell Inn Ticehurst (a little more fine dining, but more expensive). A great part of the world, Rye, Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Lewes all worth a visit, but great to come home at the end of the day to chill out in such a lovely cottage. Thanks again.

Mr and Mrs S, Rugby
24 March 2017
We spent a terrific and energising week in the “High Weald” countryside. Did lovely walks and runs, visited the beautiful town of Royal Tunbridge Wells.
The oast is very well located and gave us everything we could wish for. We slept very well in this peaceful environment.
Thank you.
Mr and Mrs W, Belgium
10 March 2017
A wonderful relaxing week. Many a happy hour spent in front of the wood burner with a good book! The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Fantastic 7 miles walk up to the reservoir and into Ticehurst on a lovely sunny day! Thank you for all your effort to make this a lovely getaway.
Mr & Mrs L, Cambridgeshire
1 March 2017
Our second visit, looking forward to our third. Excellent, top of the range, Rural Retreat. The Bull good food and beer. Very good conversion of an oast house - deserves a design award. Missing seeing a fox or two this year! Many thanks.

Mr & Mrs D, Buckinghamshire
20 February 2017
We woke up to snow on our first morning, and as the week went by, Spring arrived. Daffodils inside (thank you) and catkins outside. This has been a perfect rural retreat to return to after a walk at Bewl Water and to sit curled up with a book, relaxing by the wood burning stove. We leave with our batteries recharged and with precious memories. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs F, Hampshire
7 February 2017
Wonderful relaxing break with our daughter before her wedding. Oast house is beautiful with amazing scenery. Visited the quaint local pub The Bull and can recommend Spice Cottage in Ticehurst for a take-away. Rye well worth a visit. Thank you so much for everything.

The C family, Birmingham & Staffs
30 January 2017
We had a fantastic winter weekend here. The oasthouse is extremely warm, comfortable, and beautifully furnished (and amazingly clean!). This is the nicest Rural Retreats property I have stayed in. We loved the location too - absolutely quiet and peaceful, and the close proximity to lots of NT properties. We visited Scotney and Bodiam Castles, and had Sunday lunch at the Salehurst Halt after a visit to Bodiam - highly recommended. Thank you for a fantastic welcome basket and a great weekend.
PS Thank you for such a generous portion of logs.
Mr & Mrs Q, London
25 January 2017
A very peaceful and relaxing break in a first-class, exceptionally well equipped holiday property. Can recommend The Bull - good food,service, and very pleasant young staff. Have stayed at many RR properties, and the Oast ranks amongst the best!

Mr and Mrs M, Kent
16 January 2017
Had a wonderful time on our break. Beautiful surroundings, and even though the weather was freezing at times, Hastings beach was a lovely visit, along with a wide variety of museums. Nice relaxing quiet holiday :)

O & C, Essex
13 January 2017
Beautiful oast house in such a peaceful location, great walks around Bewl. Will come back again!

Have had a wonderful but too brief stay in this wonderful property. Two lovely meals in the Bull Inn. Am sure we’ll return soon!

Mr & Mrs J, Hampshire
28 December 2016
Thanks so much! It’s pretty faultless and we very much loved all the attention to detail. The ambience indoors and out is a rare blend of stimulation and relaxation - the setting wonderful. We’ll be back.

T & J, Nottinghamshire
20 December 2016
This is simply a beautiful home. At every turn, we found just the right thing for the job, in the kitchen especially. Wonderfully quiet, beautiful stars, a Christmas tree with lights and holly - all so welcoming. We would not hesitate to come back again - thank you for making a small haven for us on our visit!

Mr W, Connecticut, USA

What an amazing place. Loved every minute of this weekend and staying at this beautiful property. So well appointed, and beautifully styled and decorated. It was a real privilege and pleasure staying at the oast house.

Mr H, London
9 December 2016
A very comfortable cottage with all the amenities - a nice home away from home. Good walking, close to good pubs - a good overall location. Thanks for the starter provisions - much appreciated after a long drive from Heathrow. Quality start to finish.
Thank you Angela and Family.

The S family, Queensland Australia
27 November 2016
Very many thanks for a very comfortable weekend. Apologies again that we locked ourselves out on the first evening! Wonderful walk around Bewl Water, and thoroughly recommend The Bull in Three Leg Cross.
Mr and Mrs D, London
18 November 2016
This is our second visit to Bakers Farm Oast. We have had an amazing two days staying in your gorgeous house. The property is so well presented and makes for a very relaxing weekend in the country. Lots of nice walks around Bewl lake. Thank you for the birthday cake. See you again soon.

Mr & Mrs F, Surrey
4 November 2016
Bakers Farm Oast is even better than the photos would suggest! A superb conversion, and we have always wanted to stay in an Oast House. Well done, your hard work has paid off with a quality holiday home, tasteful and stylish interiors, and we love the kitchen! We are here to celebrate Mum’s big birthday and meet up with family and friends over Kent (we used to live in Tonbridge) so not done as much sightseeing locally as we would have liked this trip. Will have to return again and see the wonderful gardens and NT properties nearby. Thank you for the generous welcome hamper and for sharing this comfortable and well equipped RR with us.

D & S, Notts and Wilts
2 November 2016
An exceptionally well appointed, comfortable little retreat in a wonderful setting. We have had a most enjoyable time here - just too short! Very many thanks from us all.

Mr and Mrs S, Surrey, and Mr and Mrs H, Essex
25 October 2016
We have greatly enjoyed our second visit to this lovely Oast House - although rather more log fires and less BBQing! (what an excellent clean-burn the wood burner is too!) We visited The Bell and The Bull for dinner - really excellent service and atmosphere in the latter. Also cycled around Bewl Water (hard work!) and a day in Rye - a lovely town with lots of individual shops and cafes, walks and local interest. The Lighthouse Bakery is just great. Determined to come back and do a course.

Mr and Mrs M, Gloucestershire
22 October 2016
We have had a lovely stay. Thank you! Just too short! We enjoyed a walk to the lake, a splash in the local pool, a visit to Scotty Castle and today we are off to the observatory. It has been nice just to relax here - beautiful views and a great fire. Thank you again!

Mr and Mrs G, Wimbledon
18 October 2016
We have enjoyed staying at Bakers Farm Oast House. A lovely accommodation, convenient, comfortable and well maintained. We could live here and especially enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. Very well placed for visiting NT properties and we found a real treasure when we visited Pashley Manor Gardens just outside of Ticehurst. We hope to visit again, and visit during another season. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs G, Hertfordshire
14 October 2016
We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful cottage. Visited several National Trust properties, including Bateman’s, Sissinghurst and Smallhythe Place. The gardens at Hole Park and Godington were well worth a visit too. Thank you.

The W family, Hertfordshire
5 October 2016
Fabulous cottage, beautiful setting. Cottage very comfortable, 5 star, would stay again and recommend to family and friends. Lovely furnishings, everything you need. Angela made us very welcome. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs R, Australia

What a beautiful, gorgeous and relaxing weekend in an amazing house - loved it. Couldn’t have asked for anything else. We will definitely return. Thank you for your welcome and friendliness.

Mr and Mrs G, Surrey
18 September 2016
The best holiday cottage we have stayed in!! Beautiful location, with access to so many National Trust properties and more. We have had a wonderful break in this perfect “home from home”. Thank you Angela for your warm welcome. We will be back!!

Mr and Mrs H, West Sussex
16 September 2016
I booked this absolutely stunning property for my wedding weekend and what a fabulous place to stay. Would so love to live here. It made a wonderful place to spend an evening with my mum and bridesmaids and then a tranquil setting to get ready on the big day.
The welcome hamper was exquisite and Angela’s very warm welcome made a truly memorable weekend. We will return one year, perhaps to celebrate our anniversary.
Thank you

Mrs W, East Sussex
11 September 2016
The beautiful house and surroundings make this a very special Rural Retreats property. We, like many others, hope to return. Thank you Angela for your welcome, your advice, and for the way you have organised everything here so well.

Mr and Mrs L, Northamptonshire
2 September 2016
Stunning accommodation and wonderful location for all the local places of interest. So spotlessly clean we didn’t feel the need to inspect the kitchen equipment before use. Everything here is so well thought out - all requirements catered for. A perfect stay.

Mr and Mrs D, South Wales
17 August 2016
A beautiful, well equipped cottage in such a peaceful setting. We’ve had a wonderful holiday and even the weather has been kind to us for once! Bakers Farm Oast gets a gold medal from us!

Miss J, Wirral
3 August 2016
We absolutely loved it here. So peaceful and beautiful. The oast is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and we had everything that we could possibly need (we now want a circular kitchen!). We have been to so many places - Rye is lovely - do visit the town model, it’s fascinating. We walked to Pashley Manor Gardens - gorgeous garden and lunch, but we don’t recommend walking there as some of the route is 60mph with no pavement or verges! Both The Bull and The Bell are great walkable pubs with helpful staff. We loved the lack of street lighting which meant the Perseid Meteor Shower was even better than we’ve ever seen. Ashdown Forest (Winnie-the-Pooh) is worth the drive - about 40 minutes - spectacular scenery and we played Pooh sticks. We’d love to come back. Thank you Anderson family for creating such a wonderful holiday cottage/oast/heaven.

Ms A, North Wales
21 July 2016
Wonderful house and garden - enjoyed the sheep until they moved pastures. Fantastic village bakery and fishmonger on a Saturday - plus The Bull and fruit picking down the road. Enjoyed the wonderful NT gardens.

Mr and Mrs C, Oregon - USA
13 July 2016
Fantastic house and location - have had a wonderful break. Highly recommend the observatory/science centre at Herstmonceaux as well as the castle gardens - great for young and old alike! The Bull is good for food, but don’t have a starter if you want to have any chance of finishing your main! We’ve had a lovely time wherever we’ve been, and been able to chill out and relax at the end of the day. Thanks for a wonderful stay :)

Mr and Mrs R, Cheltenham
1 July 2016
A beautiful cottage that we thoroughly enjoyed. Idyllic surroundings and SO QUIET!! We only had 3 nights here and found we just wanted to stay here and relax (after 6 weeks of travelling all over England). Perfect weather for the end of our holiday. We have enjoyed all of our Rural Retreat stays and this one is certainly a highlight. We just wish our GPS would stop sending us down the narrowest tracks it can find. Thank you.

Mr & Mrs M, Sydney Australia
26 June 2016
This is certainly one of the best Rural Retreats cottages we have been to - everything clean and well organised. Enjoyed the sunny afternoons on the patio - even spotted a flypast by a spitfire! Would recommend a visit to Hever Castle! Thank you!

Mr & Mrs S, Nottinghamshire
23 June 2016
We had a fantastic time at Bakers Farm Oast, staying here over our wedding. It has been wonderful and added to our happy memories of our special day. Many thanks.
Mr & Mrs P, Orpington
19 June 2016
Immaculate, beautifully presented cottage in a gorgeous setting. Very comfortable too. Would highly recommend The Bull nearby, the Lighthouse Bakery in Ticehurst, Scotney Castle and Alfriston. Many thanks for a lovely stay!

Mr & Mrs H, Hertfordshire
12 June 2016
We have enjoyed our stay, helped by the beautiful house and surroundings. Particularly enjoyed visiting Rye and Pashley Manor Gardens (flowers superb and cakes scrumptious). The Bell Inn is very friendly with good food and an easy walk. Watch out for the entertaining grey squirrel who likes to sunbathe!

Mr & Mrs O, Cumbria
5 June 2016
We have had a wonderful visit. Blessed with wall-to-wall sunshine, so 3 full day bike rides and BBQs 5 nights out of 7 watching Mrs Magpie feed her young and later in the week teach them to fly, rabbits, sheep, ducks and stunning sunsets. Pashley Manor Gardens was a great recommendation and we enjoyed lunch at The Milkhouse, Sissinghurst. Thank you so much. The Oast House is stunning; we have slept like logs and been really comfortable. We can’t wait to return and do everything there hasn’t been time for. We haven’t even been to Bewl Water yet!! BTW the Park Run at Bedgebury Forest is a good one.

Mr and Mrs M, The Cotswolds
29 May 2016
Fantastic property! Perfect condition, and comprehensively stocked (great book collection, thanks!). Extremely comfortable and warm, even on chilly, rainy evenings. Lots of cycling around Bewl Water and in Bedgebury Forest. A couple of NT properties. Hope to return soon. Thanks to Angela and family.

The B Family, Nottingham
23 May 2016
Pristine property, and so peaceful. Lovely lunches at Beale’s Barn and Merriments Garden Centre. The Codgers Menu (over 65s) at The Bull is very good value for excellent food. We hope to come again.

Mr and Mrs P, West Sussex
15 May 2016
Excellent in every way. We intended to visit several National Trust properties, but preferred to stay put. Says it all!

Mr & Mrs B, Warwickshrie

Thanks for the warm welcome in this beautiful cottage! We really loved our stay here - the beautiful nature, cities and villages. We will definitely come back to East Sussex/Kent!
The G Family, Netherlands
22 April 2016
Thank you very much. The oast house has been a faultless haven for the week. It has all the comforts of modern life, and none of the drawbacks - noise, lights, clutter etc. We all feel very much better after our peaceful holiday. The Bull is a lovely pub. Also really enjoyed Great Dixter garden and a day in Brighton. Had two lovely pub lunches - The Bull at Benenden and The Bottle House near Penshurst. Lovely walk around the headland. THANK YOU.

H R, Derbyshire
13 April 2016
We had the best time, setting is beautiful! Kids enjoyed seeing the sheep, horses, squirrels, pheasants and rabbits so close and we enjoyed days out to Bodiam Castle, Bedgebury Forest and Groombridge. So nice to return to the oast after a tiring day. The house had everything we needed and the hamper was great (the apple juice went down well!). We can recommend The Bell and The Bull for a family pub meal. P.S. Mummy had the best 40th birthday whilst she was here. Thank you!

The Hentzen Family
8 April 2016
We have enjoyed our stay in the oast house. Also we went to lots of places - the Seven Sisters, Bewl Water, Ticehurst, and the Battle place of 1066. The house was nice to be able to come back and relax in another place. Our beds were soft, games fun, and the polished floor a bit slippery. The apple juice and biscuits you left us we ate and drank and enjoyed. We munched through nearly all of your oranges you left us to eat. Going into Ticehurst from the oast house. A pub called The Bell we went to. For breakfast we usually had your Alpen you left us. As we have so enjoyed our stay we shall recommend this oast house. Thanks for everything.

The Bruce family
22 March 2016
Idyllic pastoral setting for total chill out! Frolicking lambs and golden daffodils. Thank you.
Mr and Mrs Yeo
14 March 2016
Perfect for a family meeting place to catch up and share lovely memories together. A place of tranquility and charm. Thank you for making the Oast House a perfect, welcoming space. Rural Retreats has excelled once more. Local food was as good as your recommendations. Thank you Angela
The Shand Family
7 March 2016
Had a wonderful stay in your beautiful oast house. Beautiful house, spotlessly clean, lovely welcome hamper, everything absolutely perfect! One of the best Rural Retreats that we have been to. Thank you very much!”
Mr Dinsdale
29 February 2016
Each one of the ten Rural Retreats visited has been of a high standard. Bakers Oast ranks equally with our previous favourite in Norfolk (4 visits), so we hope to come back. The location was ideal for visiting places of interest and the scenery around is lovely
Mr & Mrs Downing

Mr & Mrs Marrill

Was brought here for a belated 50th birthday celebration - a perfect weekend! Beautiful location, excellent accommodation, and wonderful food, drink, and company. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate a ‘special’ birthday. Thank you to the best friends in the world!
The Drakesmith family
31 January 2016
We had the most relaxing and lovely weekend here at Bakers Farm Oasthouse. We’ve used the wonderful kitchen for baking and cooking and have enjoyed spending time in front of the fire. We don’t want to go home and can’t wait to come back!
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend - we loved your beautiful house and had such a wonderful time here. A beautiful place to stay in a beautiful part of the world - we can’t wait to return!

Mr Hutchinson
10 January 2016
We had a lovely weekend break here. Visited both The Bull and The Bell - both great. Had a lovely morning at Bewl Lake with our children (2 1/2 and 5 1/2 years) enjoyed playing - 2 playgrounds, pirate ship. Spent rainy afternoon relaxing in the oast with a roaring fire - lovely! This is a great place, we have lots more to visit in the warmer/drier months - we will be back!

The Weller Family
5 January 2016
Had a wonderful break at the oast house. Very well equipped, great location. Enjoyed breakfast seeing sheep outside the window. Despite the rain we got out and about. Battle was interesting although the battlefield was closed due to rain. Went to Rye and Winchelsea. Ate at both The Bull and The Bell. Enjoyed the woodburning stove and the whole novelty of this little haven.

The Whites
28 December 2015

Pleasure to work in the fantastic kitchen, beds very comfortable. In all, a very enjoyable visit. The Oast House is very well equipped, warm, cosy, and comfortable.

The B Family, London

A fantastic couple of nights. We enjoyed visiting Ticehurst and Cranbrook on the Saturday morning, and Bedgebury (including Christmas Fair) in the afternoon. And we are about to set off for some castle adventures! The Oast House is perfect. Thank you

Having already been to five “Rural Retreats” around the country we found Bakers Farm Oast to be the very best. The décor, fixtures and fittings are all so well chosen. It is such a wonderful, relaxing place to be with amazing views from every window.
Tunbridge Wells and Rye are worth visiting, also we have been lucky to be able to take in the “Midwinter Fair” at Bedgebury Pinetum – really enjoyable.
Great walks to Bewl Water and excellent meals at The Bull.
Thank you Angela for making our stay a fantastic break.

What a haven! We have enjoyed a much needed rest in this beautiful property. We even saw a pheasant strolling past the French doors at breakfast time! The property has been finished to an exceedingly high standard, with no skimping on the fixtures, fittings and accessories. We enjoyed doing the 7 mile Ticehurst circular walk which took in part of the walk around Bewl Water. Rye was worth a visit with some very quaint and quirky shops. Even bought a few Christmas gifts.
We received a very warm welcome at The Bull, just down the road, and enjoyed a couple of delicious meals there.
Thank you so much to The Anderson Family for sharing this little gem with us!

We absolutely loved our stay from the moment we arrived and saw our lovely welcome hamper with the “delicious” apple juice (our son loved it). The house is gorgeously decorated, and the attention to detail is apparent throughout. We managed to light a fire every day and enjoy the cosy autumn evenings. In fact, we can’t wait to come back and enjoy other seasons in the oast! Thank you to the Anderson family!!

The best Rural Retreats holiday we have been on so far. Lovely 13 mile walk around Bewl Water followed by a drink at The Bull. Beautiful scenery everywhere you look, perfect for a peaceful get away. I look forward to hopefully returning one day.

Excellent property, very relaxing and such a great base to explore south-east England. Loved our meals at The Bull. Did the whole 13 mile walk around Bewl Water which was beautiful. Had fantastic weather the whole time and cool enough at night to light a fire in the wood stove. Even saw a fox right outside the door. All-in-all, loved the oast and all the people we have met during our stay here.

A charmingly converted property in a beautiful setting. The nearby castles and gardens have much to offer visitors especially when the weather is as glorious as it has been these past few days.

One of the best Rural Retreats Cottages we have stayed in – beautiful unspoilt countryside.

A beautiful property in a tranquil and useful location. This is the sort of house I would buy myself. We visit this area regularly and will be back. We’ve been unlucky with the weather, but the stay has nonetheless been restful and the quiet much appreciated. Thank you for all the goodies – excellent choices and presentation. Highly recommended!

We had a very relaxing holiday here in your beautiful oast! We enjoyed the evenings by the fireplace and the silence around us. We used our second visit in England to visit some impressive beautiful gardens, castles, and houses. And we are looking forward to come back soon! Thank you for the welcome feeling we had from the first minutes we entered this oast

A fantastic property in a great part of the country. Loads of places to visit in the area and the coast is only 30 minutes away. Walk to the headland worthwhile, and if you like blackberries take a bag as there are loads!

You’ve done a wonderful job on the oast house! Quite the best kitted out cottage we have been in. We hope to return so that we can continue to explore the area for a possible move from London. A rainy afternoon at Bateman’s yesterday was really atmospheric.

Had a lovely time whilst here for the three days. Weather was lovely, and what a beautiful place you have here. Everything we could have asked for and more. Helped us make many memories. Thank you

A wonderful few days away for me and my family. The oast house is truly wonderful and decorated so tastefully. The girls loved their grown-up bedroom and couldn’t wait to get outside and play in the “really big garden”. Hubby and I enjoyed many lovely hours every evening dining outside or just relaxing and reading a good book. Lots to do for the family out and around the area. We are already deciding on the date for our return visit

Truly lovely few days. Cycling, running and resting. The peace and quiet and sheer restfulness of the place needs to be experienced.The kids didn’t wish to leave and neither did we. Thank you Bakers Farm Oast

Fantastic weekend – due to fantastic accommodation, plus fantastic weather!! Weather was so good we couldn’t light the woodburning stove L. Great walks around Bewl Water, made friends with many wet dogs! J! Would reccommend take-away from Spice Cottage, also the burgers at The Bell are top taste! Beware The Bull Sundays after 5pm – kitchen closes – no food! Don’t forget to look up – the stars are amazing!!! The peace!!!!

Thank you for the lovely oast house! We have had a lovely relaxing break. A lovely house with all the things we needed. The red wine was especially welcome after a long journey to get here.

We love the oast house! Very luxurious and relaxing. Loved the red wine in the hamper, the fabulous walk around Bewl Water, and we’d recommend the “all in one” pie at The Bull Inn.
