Very Good

“Wonderful weekend! Best cottage we have ever stayed in.”

Reviewed 10 May 2017

We have stayed for couple of nights in May. We had such a lovely time. Couldn't ask for more! Fantastic property, very clean with an amazing garden, indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. Great place for walking, on the edge of Hastings country park nature reserve. We will definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends.

“Lovely little long weekend away”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2016

We stayed at Swallows Nest for a short break to celebrate our anniversary and we was certainly not disappointed. The cottage was lovely and very well equipped, the owners were very welcoming and very helpful. We was provided with maps of the local area, which was very handy. We highly recommend doing the dripping well nature walk, the area was absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately we never got around to using the swimming pool and the hot tub. However we will definitely be returning, and we are looking forward to going back again very soon. We will definitely be recommending this cottage to family and friends. Thank you Chris and Erick for making us feel welcome, we didn't want to leave.

“Fantastic property, location and hosts”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2016

Top notch facilities within a great location. Super hosts who would happily go the extra mile if you need it. Furnishings and facilities are great quality and clean. Perfect location for walks, especially for dog lovers. Will definitely be going back later on this year!

“Wonderful location for dog walkers”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2016

We were made to feel very welcome. The conditions were very wet and muddy but we still got out and about. The Coastguard Tearooms serve a wide selection of food and dogs are allowed. So it was great to be warm and well fed inside with our dog of a change. The addition of the hot tub at Covehurst Bay Holiday Cottages was just what we needed. A lovely relaxed stay - we would love to come back when it's a bit dryer under foot! There were plenty of places to get food in Ore (5 minutes by car) including KFC and Pizza Hut - just what you need with a teenager in tow. Plus a Tesco Express and Co-op.

“Wonderful retreat”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Swallows Nest cottage, the cottage had all mod cons and a lovely comfortable bed. The pool was fabulous, the kids absolutely loved it. Great location. Chris and Erick were great hosts, they let us know the tide timetable and left some delicious muffins for our arrival. They left us to it and if we ever needed them, they were more than happy to help.

“beautiful location and well appointed property”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2015

place looks just like the photos. Lots of great parts to it and the bed was like a giant marshmallow and very comfy. I didn't cook much there but could have done easily and the kitchen has everything you need. Sofas were comfy too and the whole place felt like a home from home. I even saw a fox right outside the front door on the first night which was a treat. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
