Lovely short break in Robertsbridge
Cute cottage that had everything we needed, including being dog-friendly. Centrally located for visiting Battle, Rye, Bodiam and Camber Sands. We had a very relaxing break.
Wonderful time at The Dairy. Beautifully decorated property, lots to see and do nearby. Lovely owners. Perfect stay.
OK but a little disappointing. Our first not fully positive review...a shame really...
Before arriving we received good communication from the owners about how to access the property and all was as described.
On arrival it was cold, however it took over 2 hours for the under floor heating to start to make any difference in the property. Then when nice and warm it takes many hours to cool back down, not normally a problem however we prefer it cooler at night so sleep was disturbed by heat.
The property is described as luxurious and with no expense spared. To have only one footstool for the reclining chairs, a TV with terrible sound and many channels not watchable due to poor quality, no potato masher, black mould on the grout of the wet room floor tiles, yellow stains on the shower curtain, a non-working heated towel rail, and a dirty utensil left in the dishwasher does not scream luxurious and no expense spared to me.
The bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful. The view was lovely when you look past the owners house who have their blinds down the whole time on one side of the property to give holiday makers their privacy.
