“5* Holiday at a 5* property”

This was one of the best weeks we have had. We went for Christmas in 2013 and had such a lovely time. The property itself is situated behind the main house were the landlord lives so it is nice a quiet away from the road traffic (not that there is much)

We went with our 2 children, our 4 year old boy and 6 month old son, they both really enjoyed it. Our eldest liked looking at the geese which are in the field next to the property.

The property has everything you will need with the main bedroom having an on-suit bathroom as well as the shower room. The kitchen is small, but we were able to do 2 full Christmas roast's without much trouble, so it isn't as small as it may seem.

there are 2 pubs fairly close, the two sawyers is the closest situated literally meters away so a nice short walk if it’s raining or cold. we went here once to grab a sandwich and have a drink before some Christmas films were on, but unfortunately was rudely met by a waitress, who didn't seem to want our custom so we decided to try another pub (the royal oak) down the road, we were welcomed here with open arms and went back another 2 times as they were very nice to our children and us. The food here was really nice although we only had sandwiches and chips.

The drive into Pett was quiet daunting as it took us through all the lanes after we had a really bad week of rain so it was very watery but it was worth it.

while we were there on Christmas eve there was a power-cut that lasted the whole day, the landlord was nice enough to keep coming and checking on us and even offered for us to come into his property for shower and to keep warm with his fire he had going. This was extremely nice of him and will nether forget the hospitality he offered throughout the visit.

I would recommend this property to anyone you will be treated brilliantly by the landlord and also have lots of fun while you are there.
