“Stunning views, great accommodation, a wonderful place to stay with dogs.”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Staying at The Old Cricket Pavilion was a wonderful experience, one which will definitely go down in our memory books. The accommodation is modern, clean, warm and cosy and our two dogs had a great time strolling round the garden. The views are absolutely stunning, and being able to walk down to the pub and the castle is a real bonus. We felt very welcome and didn't want to leave. We have already booked another stay for 2016, so that says it all!

“Perefct in everyway - Faultless”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Perfect location. Wonderfully spacious cottage. Fabulous outlook. Peaceful at a dead end road. Pub 5 min walk away. Perfect for the dogs to run in the garden and lots of nearby walks including the best castle in England at Bodiam. The cottage kitchen has every utensil you would need. Great coffee machine. All the white goods. Comfy beds. Comfy sofas. VERY efficient heating and very hot water at an instant. Solid wood fuel burner . SKY TV, DVD player.......the only thing that didn't work was the radio....not the end of the world! A huge thank you for the cake, bread, eggs and jam for brealkfast!! Awesome customer service. Terri and team were magnificent with all their communications, and keeping a well manged and spotlessly clean property

Thank you for your kind comments. Sorry about the radio. I think we will change from digital as it doesn't always get a signal.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.

“Wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The property was so well equipped and spotlessly clean, very comfortable and beautifully furnished.
We had great welcome and very friendly staff.
The Castle inn is 5 minute stroll away and dog friendly, their menu is varied and they are so well organised they can cater for large groups of people, nice place to eat.
We enjoyed sitting in the old cricket pavilion garden, relaxing and looking for the little owl who lives in the barn.
So many places of interest nearby, I thoroughly recommend this property , our only regret was , we didn't book for 2 weeks, we did not want to leave!

“Bowled us over!”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely place with everything you could want there. Clean and cosy. Terrie even made sure lights were on for us when we arrived late. Lovely goodies as well. Great views towards the steam train. Quiet lane for walking dogs with a choice of walks straight from door. Would recommend but would love to keep this place a secret so it would always be available.

“AMAZING, FANTASTIC, BEAUTIFUL, DIDNT WANT TO LEAVE.....”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I cannot praise this property enough. It is amazing and just what we were looking for. Terrie the owner is a great host and suggested this property to us last year when we stayed at another of their properties. We were looking for quiet, tranquil and peace in the countryside without being a million miles form amenities should we want anything. The cricket Pavilion fitted the brief perfectly. I had my mother and husband and 6 year old son plus our dog Molly with me and our long weekend felt like an eternity. It consisted of playing, feeding the nearby pigs, building fairy houses, visiting the castle grounds for a picnic which doesn't cost anything, walks in the sunshine, watching the steam trains arrive in Bodiam Station across the fields, watching the wildlife which our highlight was the barn owl hunting in the field to the rear of the pavilion on evening which is a treat I haven't seen since my childhood in Sussex. We arrived home on Monday and I had booked another long weekend for next year by Monday afternoon. 5 star on everything and we will be back next June. Thank you x
