It overlooks open countryside from every aspect, with views of vineyards from the lounge. It is part of a working farm, so it is possible that livestock will be grazing in the field behind the cottage on occasions throughout the year.

Location description from owner

The England region

The property is within 2 miles of the Kent/Sussex border and therefore offers visitors the chance to explore both counties. There are a multitude of places to visit including BATTLE (Abbey, historic battlefield and Yesterday's World), HASTINGS (Blue Reef Aquarium, Adventure Golf, Clambers Play Centre, Fishermen's Museum, Shipwreck Museum and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery) and RYE (Castle Museum, nature reserve and Camber Castle), numerous gardens including Pashley Manor, Merriments and Great Dixter, as well as Bateman's (the former home of Rudyard Kipling), Bewl Water, Bedgebury National Pinetum and Scotney Castle. For walkers, the area is criss-crossed with footpaths. For cyclists, the roads are generally quiet and there are miles of off-road tracks for all the family at Bedgebury, where cycle hire is available. Unspoilt countryside and open-air activities abound in this area. There are also plenty of places to eat, with a wide variety of menus.

Bodiam

Bodiam is a small village boasting a magnificent castle with moat and grounds. Visitors on foot are welcome to wander through the grounds and around the castle and are usually admitted free to the many events that are held here throughout the year. However, there is a small charge to go into the castle itself.

The River Rother runs through the village and in peak season a ferry operates from Bodiam Castle to Northiam. The castle is run by the National Trust and has a tea room and giftshop. The Castle Inn offers a warm welcome and serves a wide range of excellent food.

The KESR station that is visible from the cottage hosts many events incuding The Hop Pickers Weekend. Visitors can also go from Bodiam to Tenterden by steam train. Tenterden is a charming old market town and offers a wide range of shops.

We had a wonderful time with home cooking on the excellent facilities kept very cosy and snug with the log fire and central heating with my little dog wanting to share his toys with the sheep when we had to leave Will look to book again

“Bliss!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2016

Our 3rd visit to the Old Cricket Pavilion and it certainly won't be the last! So quiet and peaceful, we feel instantly relaxed when we walk through the door. Very warm and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Lots of lovely extras are provided and it's superbly dog-friendly, our cocker spaniel Betty loves it there as much as we do!! The surrounding countryside is beautiful with lots of local walks and many places of interest nearby. Very nice food at the Castle Inn at the end of the lane. It was good to see Terrie again who is a lovely host

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

“Luxury Comfortable Peaceful”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2016

We stayed for 10 nights in this PERFECT property and it was so well equipped with everything you needed. At the end of of a private lane you only see occasionally the odd walkers. Lots of places to visit like Bodiam Castle, Hasting, Battle, Rye and Camber Sands. Surrounded by countryside and you hear he odd peep of the Steam Train which is well worth visit. The garden is perfect for pets and dog friendly, Elvis our Pug enjoyed himself running around the grass. We Will Be Back

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted the cottage suited your needs and you found the area of interest. Really pleased Elvis liked the garden!. Thanks again.

“Lovely!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

The Cricket Pavilion was just as lovely as it looked in the photos on line! It was clean and freshly decorated, airy and light with great views of surrounding countryside. The welcome was warm and friendly and the cake, bread, eggs and milk were fresh and delicious. Everything was provided as listed. The garden and patio area was very well laid out, and we enjoyed a lovely BBQ outside. The location was great for us with plenty to do and see. No complaints at all!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind comments, We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

“Absolutely fabulous!”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2012

A lovely property down a quiet lane. Fantastic views across valley and only 5 minutes walk from the most fairytale castle in England. Charming and generous hosts who not only left us bread and cake but gave up a large part of their Sunday morning to let my little ones feed the chickens and calves on their neighbouring farm. Cant recommend the old cricket pavilion enough and looking forward to coming back next year! Andy

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your comments. We are delighted your family enjoyed their stay and look forward to seeing you again.

Terri couldn't be more helpful and made us very welcome with a lovely home made cake! Bodiam has a nice pub at the end of the lane, Bodiam Castle is worth a visit as well!

We (myself, husband, mum-in-law, two children under 5 and golden retriever) stayed here for a week and loved it. The cottage has lots of character and is very well equipped, child friendly and well looked after. Mike and Terri were lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. There are great walks for the dog. We'd love to stay here again.
