About Brenda Haines
Richard and Brenda Haines have been running holiday cottages for more than 20 years now, starting with Froglets Cottage in central Rye. Along with Joan, their longstanding family housekeeper, they personally look after them and are proud that all have achieved the coveted Gold Award from EnjoyBritain. Richard grew up in Rye and there is little he does not know about the area, (many of his stories having become family myth or joke!) and since both he and Brenda, along with their children and grandchildren who also live close by know the area so well, they are a mine of local information to help guests enjoy their stay. Richard and Brenda love their gardens and spend a lot of time tending the plants, many of which were planted way back in time and are quite unusual. Nonetheless, it is a family home, with pets and grandchildren, sheep and baby lambs in the springtime, free ranging chickens in the field, and lots to be enjoyed.
Brenda Haines purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Brenda Haines chose Northiam
Before purchasing historic Morley Farm, Brenda and Richard had lived in a 17th Century property just up the road in the village of Newenden, but with a growing family, a larger property soon became necessary! A property with a lot of character was essential to them and when ancient Morley Farm was offered for sale, there was no hesitation. The outlook was stunning, the gardens stocked with glorious shrubs and plants, the buildings simply oozed character and history, and there was also the exciting prospect of a long history awaiting discovery. Having already enjoyed the Rye holiday cottages, Morley Farm also had the benefit of a small detached cottage which could soon be offered as a holiday cottage, and an ancient barn to convert, all within a lovely sunny walled garden.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sixteen years on, all is long finished, the buildings carefully restored to their original glory. Recorded history has shown that Morley Farm dates back some 600 years with further stone remains being dated as Norman in origin, and the whole has a wonderful happy family atmosphere. Before Richard and Brenda owned the property, the previous family owners had lived there for nearly 100 years, it is indeed a much loved home. The gardens remain pretty, and are enjoyed by guests who come not only to sunbathe or enjoy a barbeque, but to visit nearby Great Dixter, in the village, with the late Christopher Lloyds beautiful gardens. There are often lines of newly purchased plants on one of the terraces! Morley Farm is also ideally situated for visiting numerous other famous gardens nearby, along with the many historic National Trust properties that the 1066 area is so famous for. Children can enjoy being close to and even feeding the animals. Rye, with its many attractions is only 15 minutes away, and Battle (the site of the Norman Conquest) just a little further, and both offering a complete contrast, and not least, the famous beaches at Camber or Winchelsea close by - in all a perfect place both to live and holiday!
