What a superb property! A beautiful and peaceful location within walking distance of a great pub! A 13 mile walk around Bewl Water, train to Bodiam Castle and Ightham Mote all memorable highlights of a fantastic break. We will return as there is so much more to explore! Thank you Angela

Thank you for a super stay at your lovely oast house. The peace and quiet were most welcome after the hurly burly of Bath. Village charming. Mine host at The Bull charming, and fishmonger at The Bell on Saturday morning a rare treat; best potted shrimps ever!! Another treat the wood burner.

We have has a delightful stay in the Oast House. Have enjoyed the setting and the house itself. We have walked on the marshes at Rye and surrounding valleys, as well as visiting Sissinghurst and local churches. We hope to return. The English Spring beautiful despite hail and rain (and some sun!).

Yet another lovely break in E. Sussex/Kent, but really enhanced this time by your beautiful and comfortable oast house, peace, quiet,rabbits,horses, etc,etc!!

Yet another wonderful and relaxing stay! Great cycling around the lake. Good food at The Bull Inn. Oast house just perfect, and spotless as always!

K&H, Southampton

The Oast House is in a great location - we loved seeing the little bunnies in the garden and the horses nearby. Cottage has everything we need - kitchen very well kitted out. The whole place is spotless - thank you for the effort and thought gone into making this a wonderful place to stay. We walked (part way) round Bewl Water, had a fabulous (and windy) day at Camber Sands - the beach is amazing, and went bike-riding at Bedgebury. P.S. The scones were delicious - thank you so much
The T Family, London

Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful cottage. We really appreciated all the amenities, especially the log burner. Great pubs within walking distance - couldn’t be better! We’ll be back!

The J's, Devon
15 March 2019
Lovely break, despite storm Gareth! Cottage very welcoming. Can honestly say the best equipped and hamper with Rural Retreats. Visited Brighton - pavilion worth a visit. For individual quirky shops try Rye and Old Hastings. Sad to be leaving. Thank you.

K&G, Norfolk
10 March 2019
Such a lovely property and a wonderful relaxing stay, lovely hamper and Angela was so helpful when we had a min power cut. Bodiam Castle was a lovely fairytale place to visit and Battle added some more history to our stay. The local farm shop (Eggs to Apples) was brilliant and had everything we needed. Dinner at The Bell in Ticehurst was lovely, but even better was Sunday lunch at The Bull, a really lovely family pub environment - everybody so welcoming. We will definitely be back. Thank you :)

Charming Property - homely and well loved. Prefect for an early Spring break. Great days out and nights by the fire at home or at The Bull. Knole House is designed for a wet and windy day!

Our 4th visit - next year is a leap year - good excuse to stay for an extra day all being well. We love it here - thanks Angela.

Had a great few days with perfect weather too. Enabled us to explore and then come back and relax.

Mr & Mrs R - West Sussex
6 February 2019
Our first stay here, the best RR accommodation by far. Everything you could want in the kitchen and my dream came true to see 2 horses so close by. Excellent meals at The Bell and The Bull. Hope to come back further into the year though the snow made the Oast House even more magical.

Mr & Mrs B - Hertfordshire

Our first stay - will be back. One lovely place, very restful. The Bell and The Bull great food. Thank you (5 stars).

Perfectly relaxing stay! Thank you for the hamper and bits - they were really handy. We had a truly wonderful time. Would recommend The Curlew - food was fantastic. We also ate at The Bell which was wonderful. Rye is certainly worth a visit - really beautiful and well kept.
We look forward to returning soon! Thanks again! Merry Christmas!

The A Family - London
14 December 2018
Had a lovely, relaxing, pre-Christmas stay. Beautiful location and a beautifully presented property. Enjoyed a walk round Bewl lake, cut out most of the road walking by taking a water taxi from Ferry Point to the opposite shore. Rye worth a visit for the historic buildings, Scotney Castle lovely and enjoyed wine tasting at Hush Heath winery. Had a meal at The Bull which was OK, but wouldn’t rush back. Merry Christmas!

Mr & Mrs F - Dorset
11 December 2018
Our first stay here and it was lovely. The weather wasn’t great so we made full use of the log burner! The house was perfectly equipped. Thank you for a lovely weekend.

7 December 2018
Our 4th visit and still as good as the 1st! Thanks again Angela for making us feel so welcome. We enjoyed a nice lunch at The Bull Inn and it’s so handy to be able to walk there, as well as being able to walk to Bewl Water. We will be back to enjoy the peace and quiet once again! Thank you.

Our first visit to this lovely and tranquil oast house. Thank you for the hamper - went down a storm and a nice touch. We hope to return here in the future. Many thanks.
P.S. Thanks for supplying us with the cot, highchair and stair gate for our 14 month old, who loved looking out for the horses and sheep!

The G Family - Surrey
16 November 2018
Another marvellous stay in that lovely and well-kept cottage (5 star!) in a quiet place. An ideal place for walks to Bewl Water and NT properties nearby.
Many thanks to Angela. We will certainly be back soon.

28 October 2018
A lovely return visit to Bakers Oast - a home from home. Very lucky this time with the weather, and much less mud. Would recommend The Bull for pub food and the Pinetum is certainly worth a visit. Thank you for your thoughtful hospitality.

S & D, Kent
22 October 2018
Gorgeous cottage and location. Very comfortable and quiet. A really lovely place to stay for my husband’s birthday. Loved the scones, log burner, and comfy bed!!!

What a lovely place to stay in a stunning area - we have loved our weekend at Bakers Oast, thank you so much for the delicious scones and hamper of goodies. Thank you Angela. Recommend Eggs to Apples farm shop, Sissinghurst, The Milk House, Great Dixter, Rye, Scotney Castle and Chapel Down vineyard. Thank you - it’s been lovely.

We stayed here before in 2015. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and decided to do a “greatest hits” tour of some of our favourite places to go back to. The oast house was saved for last because we enjoyed it so much before. Angela has been so nice and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

This is a fabulous place. You’ve done yourselves proud by the restoration and rejuvenation of Bakers Farm. It has been a joy to go to sleep here, wake up here, and return after days of exploration of this exceptionally beautiful part of the world. It has been a wonderful joy to connect the “dots” of John’s family history and ancestors here at Bakers and in the locale. Thank you so much for sharing a little bit of yourselves with us and showing us John’s ancestral home. It has been awesome. We are so pleased to be able to share the drone shots we took of Bakers Farm with you and also some of the details of the Field family who once were tenant farmers. We wish you well.

Mr & Mrs C, Canada.
13 September 2018
We’ve stayed in many Rural Retreats and this one is simply the best! we enjoyed Bateman’s, Tunbridge Wells, and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway, lovely little steam trains. Going to Pashley Manor Gardens today. Loved this house, quiet, comfortable and cosy! Thank you.

Mr & Mrs W, West Sussex.
31 August 2018
A wonderfully relaxing house that was a great base for touring the local area. The house was sometimes a little too appealing, as our 4 year old son couldn’t wait to get back to it!
A lovely place to stay!

The A Family, Hampshire.
24 August 2018

Lovely comfortable house. So peaceful which is what we truly loved. Opening curtains to see horses in the field and outside the back door squirrels running along the fence. We visited Bewl Water, Bedgebury Forest, Tunbridge Wells, Camber Sands and Rye and Hever Castle. Lovely area and friendly people

10 August 2018
Two weeks of unbelievable English summer sunshine! How did you do it? Rain on our final day was a welcome relief! Much to celebrate in our fortnight here - but the best bit of the holiday was first this house. It’s pretty much perfect - comfortable and private, quiet and picturesque. Thank you so much.

Mr & Mrs S, York.
27 July 2018
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful cottage, we will miss the quiet, the view, and especially the sheep! They love the pears and our daughter enjoyed feeding them. It is a perfect spot to discover the area, near castles, beaches and London. The Bull is our favourite pub nearby.
Thanks again for these great memories and we hope to come back to use the stove!

J, B, J & A, Switzerland
14 July 2018
What a wonderful time we’ve had in this idyllic place. We’ve met up with family and friends - a perfect return to the UK for this get-together. Pashley Manor was stunning and Scotney as charming as we remember. We were lucky enough to see a badger at dusk! Thank you for sharing this beautiful part of your home - we leave with the happiest of memories.

An enjoyable three day break in this delightful, well appointed, interesting property. A warm reception on arrival with a lot of goodies awaiting our attention.
All three evenings a gentle walk to the Bull Inn restaurant and pub with a friendly atmosphere and a dining experience worthy of five stars.

The oast house is wonderful - so beautifully restored with tasteful decoration and modern facilities. We loved the kitchen! It is so lovely and clean, homely, and felt so relaxing. The splendid hamper was especially welcome, as were the delicious scones. We are already planning when we can return! The best RR we have stayed in. Thank you, it was a pleasure meeting you Angela.

M&K, Hertfordshire

We intended to visit NT properties but the weather put paid to that (OMG 29 degrees). Bewl Water was great, so sorry Nick and Angela, will have to return to this 5* property.

What a wonderful place! We have had such a great time in your lovely retreat which has everything one could wish for. The care and attention to detail is exceptional. Our holiday has passed all too quickly. The highlights include the fab walk around Bewl Water, and our visit to Pashley Manor Gardens (café superb too!). We will definitely be back next year to further explore the area, and of course to relax and chill in Baker’s Farm Oast. Thank you so much!

The T Family, Yorkshire
8 June 2018
How lucky we are to be staying in this beautifully renovated oast, surrounded by such peaceful countryside, with squirrels, rabbits, hares, pheasants and a woodpecker for company. If you enjoy gardens, Sissinghurst in June is a feast for the eyes and Pashley Manor Gardens, an unusual and relaxing visit. There is so much to see in this beautiful area. And thank you for the delicious scones!

Mr and Mrs F, Staffordshire
3 June 2018
Thank you. We had a lovely stay in this gorgeous place. We would love to come back here one day.

The S Family, Bedfordshire
28 May 2018
The oast house was perfect for a lovely relaxing stay in a lovely (sorry that’s two “lovelys”) part of the country. I had to control myself from wolfing down the delicious bread and scones all on day one. We return to the madness of London with our souls restored by birdsong, the incomparable English countryside and air so clean had forgotten what it was like. Even the “Mother of All Storms” last night only added to the beauty (sorry about the gorgeous tree by the gate though…).
Thank you .…you’ve certainly worked out the key to living a good life here!
Thanks and all best wishes x

19 May 2018
So nice here, I am back for a return visit with husband and mum-in-law this time. A very comfortable stay in your lovely oast house. Great days out and very lucky with the weather. Been to Pashley Manor Gardens, Merriments, Batemans (NT), Chartwell (NT), Great Comp Garden (between Maidstone and Sevenoaks - A20) and a walk to Bewl. Enjoyed seeing bats outside! Best meal at The Bell, not so good at The Bull. 10/10 for a lovely break in a lovely holiday home.

We have been blown away by this stunning idyll, and definitely hope to return. A morning walk along the peninsula has proved an unexpected delight too especially in such sunshine! Worth visiting for art lovers - All Saints Church, Tudeley where all the stained glass windows are by Marc Chagall!! Who knew? Everything has been exceptional - thank you Angela and Nick.

C&M, Buckinghamshire - D&F, Kent

We arrived with excellent weather: sun, clear blue sky and warmth. We were prepared for typical English weather and so we had our second day. Although it’s raining, it’s still so beautiful around here. We love the place, very luxury, nice details and a lovely welcome basket. Even the sheep were welcoming us! The walk to the lake was long enough for our three year old, and Rye was pretty. Thanks for having us!

M, S and F, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Really enjoyed our stay, a great location and the oast had everything we needed. Great family days out at Bodiam, Bedgebury, Birling Gap. Got our city kids loving squelching through the mud in their wellies!

My family and I loved our stay at The Oast. It is truly a beautiful spot, surrounded by grazing sheep. The wood stove was especially enjoyed. The house was very clean and had everything we needed.

Had a lovely stay here, I’d recommend it as there’s lots of logs for the fire! It was very cosy.

James, aged 8
12 March 2018
Chillin’ in front of the fire, if that’s not a contradiction in terms, was top notch. It was lit.
Top tips:
1. Do the Spitfire jigsaw and spot the oast.
2. Hever Castle very interesting, loads to see.
3. The Vineyard at Lamberhurst has good meals and a nice atmosphere.
4. Did part of the walk around the lake, very muddy but very enjoyable.
5. Do not make eye contact with the sheep.
6. Do not challenge your child to a game of “Line Up 4”, it will be very intimidating.

Our third visit - we love The Oast House and feel very relaxed here - thank you Angela. Looking forward to coming again.

Mr D, Marlow.
17 February 2018
Everything about the Oast House is lovely - thank you. The walking in the area was most enjoyable with the added bonus of winter sunshine. We look forward to returning to the area, but most of all to the beautiful accommodation. Thank you for the very thoughtful food hamper.
Mr and Mrs O, Kent
12 February 2018
Had a lovely three day break here. The house is so lovely, and comfortable, and well equipped. We had some great pub grub at The Bull, and Sunday roast at Chapel Down Winery. We’ll have to come back and stay here longer! Thank you Angela and Nick for a lovely house.
The G family, London
26 January 2018
What a lovely place! Despite being January we found plenty to do and enjoyed coming back to the Oast House for cosy evenings. Would recommend without hesitation. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs H - Staffordshire
7 January 2018
We have very much enjoyed our stay here at the Oast House. The house was very welcoming on our arrival (and clean!). Our two young daughters loved all of the books and boardgames, as did we. The house is very well located and we had some wonderful adventures at Scotney Castle, Bateman’s and at Bodiam Castle. We all loved our cosy evenings together around the woodburning stove (the only thing missing was a little stash of blankets to snuggle under on the sofas!). Thank you Angela and Nick for a fantastic stay! We would not hesitate in coming back and we’ll be sure to recommend you to everyone! À bientôt!

The A Family - Surrey

Had a lovely New Year and 60th birthday celebration in this beautiful house. The location was perfect for a relaxing break and the house was beautifully decorated and every home comfort was supplied. We are leaving with very happy memories of a wonderful stay.

Had a lovely family Christmas week. Many, many trips to The Bull pub which was cosy and festive. Day trips to Bewl reservoir and Bodiam Castle. Great cottage, superb log fire. A great Christmas had by the entire family.

The W family - London
18 December 2017
We’ve really enjoyed our weekend break in this lovely house and its fabulous location. A great place to spend a birthday! We loved our short (and muddy) walks to the village via the footpath and to Bewl Water - both culminating in a pub visit! Mainly we enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire, eating, chilling and drinking. We would love to come back soon!
M & J - Isle of Man/Berkshire

Lovely stay which went far too quickly. What a lovely place - thank you. Will be back in 2018 without a doubt.
Ms W - Surrey
6 December 2017
This is our third stay in this beautiful oast house and it won’t be our last! Thank you Angela for making us feel so welcome. Can recommend The Great House in Hawkhurst and The Bull Inn, and a walk around the lake is well worth it.
Mr and Mrs J - Essex
24 November 2017
We really enjoyed our second stay here in the Oast House. Thank you Angela for your warm welcome. We will come back.

Mr and Mrs P, Belgium
13 November 2017
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.

Mr and Mrs F, Hampshire
29 October 2017
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
25 October 2017
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.

The C Family, Oxford and Chelmsford
9 October 2017
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.

Mr and Mrs A, Massachusetts, USA  
26 September 2017
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!!

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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!

Mr and Mrs J, Essex

Mr and Mrs B, Warwickshire
30 December 2016
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
30 September 2016
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
6 May 2016
Lovely property, beautiful area with lots to do. We also had perfect weather - what more could we ask for? Would definitely come back. Thank you.

The N Family, Cornwall
30 April 2016
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
21 February 2016
We’ve had a lovely weekend in the oast. Thank you for a lovely hamper! The oast is very well equipped and beautifully done (and spotless!). We hope to come back. Thank you.

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
We had a perfect Christmas here. Thank you for all the little (and big!) things that made our stay easy and delightful. We even saw a woodpecker!

The Marshalls

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
22 November 2015
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
Ms Wolstenholme
20 November 2015
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.
The Carroll Family
12 November 2015
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!

Mr & Mrs Breakspear
30 October 2015
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 Caveney Family
15 October 2015
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.
Mr Schofield
11 October 2015
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.
Mr & Mrs Huber
3 October 2015
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.
Mr Brewer
29 September 2015
One of the best Rural Retreats Cottages we have stayed in – beautiful unspoilt countryside.
Mr Willis
20 September 2015
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!
Mrs Story
16 September 2015
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
Mr & Mrs Buchholz
7 September 2015
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!
The Harraway Family
1 September 2015
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.
Mrs Pollock
19 August 2015
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
Mrs Shepherd
13 August 2015
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
Mrs Chilvers
11 August 2015
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
Mrs Gardner
8 August 2015
A lovely cottage, had a great stay. Lots of wildlife; saw two woodpeckers. Had great walk around the headland and tasty meal at The Bull Inn.
Mrs Anderson
8 August 2015
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!!!!
Mr Carter
27 July 2015
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.
