An award winning farmhouse

Originally built in 1764 Coldharbour Cottage, long since derelict but now completely restored to its former glory. Many of its original features and characteristics of the rural farmhouse have been saved for you to enjoy. We found so many gems, a huge inglenook fireplace a bakers oven, hidden cupboards, numerous artefacts from old postcards, games and a smoking pipe – all now on display in the cottage!

Reviews and comments from guests staying at Coldharbour Cottage.

Our stay at Coldharbour Cottage was amazing, we all loved it. The cottage was beautiful, warm and cosy and I loved reading the interesting information signs. The local area and views were stunning and we all enjoyed our windy walks! I've asked mum and dad if we can come and stay again :-)

We were so excited to arrive on Christmas Eve to a super cosy and inviting cottage which our hosts had kindly decked out in Christmas decorations and a beautiful tree, as well as going above and beyond to leaving gifts for both us and our children. Despite the harsh windy and wet weather we had a great time and enjoyed the amazing change of scenery, from London, and our favourite room was the library room with it's own "widescreen" view of the grazing sheep and some amazing sunsets and cloudscapes. Everything is also so close, Rye and our favourite beach at Pett level were just a short trip away as well as the lovely 3 Chimneys Restaurant. We will be back.

Our family enjoyed this cosy cottage immensely. It was the perfect getaway from our usual every day hustle and bustle. Andrew was an excellent and thoughtful host and I will be recommending his cottage to my closest friends.
