Stay in this cosy, contemporary grade II listed cottage in the pretty village of Pett, with beautiful coastal walks close by and the Medieval Town of Rye only a 15 minute drive away.

You enter Rose Mullion through the back door, into a small boot room, with a downstairs cloakroom and ample coat hanging space, very handy when returning from bracing walks with muddy boots.

The well equipped galley kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay relaxing and home from home. The lounge has a large inglenook fireplace and creates a warm cosy feel on those cold winter nights. Beautiful exposed beams & cosy throws, cushions and seating for 7, make this a delightful room to snuggle up and watch a movie on those chilly days! From the lounge you have the single bedroom, with an outlook onto the garden. The dining room, with large inglenook fireplace and seating for 6 is delightful. Exposed beams and chunky furniture make this a great entertaining space.

On the first floor bedroom two overlooks the garden, and although typically cottage size, has hanging space and additional clothes storage can be used in the principal bedroom. The principal bedroom overlooks the front of the property and is a large room with ample space for a travel cot and good inbuilt storage. The main family bathroom is reached through the principal bedroom and is modern and contemporary, with a large bath with overhead fixed shower.

The front of the property has a small ornamental garden with a picket gate and footpath leading to the front door. The owners do not use the front door, as the key is a very large old brass key (about 12cm in size), which would be a nightmare to carry around when out for the day, but will be in the property if you wish to see it. The large rear garden is fully enclosed, mainly laid to lawn with a paved terrace for enjoying those summer BBQ's and lazy evenings.

Pett and beyond

Rose Mullion is situated in the village of Pett, with a village Post Office selling general provisions, two pubs and a church. In the vicinity are spectacular cliff top walks, local nature reserve and bird sanctuary. Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve, stretching from Hastings to Cliff End, Pett Level where it gives access to the beach, is a unique 660 acre area of maritime sandstone cliff with a cliff top area of grassland and heath, woodland, glens covered with gorse and trees, nature trails and spectacular walks, one of which leads to the coast at Fairlight Glen. Set in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most of the park has been designated a special Area of Conservation and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The Medieval town of Rye is 5 miles away and a visit to the Heritage Centre is a must, where you can watch the Town model's 'Sound and Light' show, which goes into detail about the history and the colourful past of Rye and its inhabitants. Or amble around the many antique shops in the Strand Quay and hunt out a bargain!

The town of Winchelsea is a ten minute drive away, and like Rye has a rich history and link to the days of smugglers. One of the many cellar tours that take place during the year is a worthy visit and a chance to see parts of the town that are not normally on show. With far reaching views over the marshes and out to sea, it really is a pleasant way to spend a few hours.

Just 10 minutes drive away is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you can walk along the sea wall and out on to the marshes to enjoy flora and fauna. You can choose to walk out to Camber Castle, originally located on a shingle spit and where once it protected the towns of Rye and Winchelsea before the sea receded. Although no longer open to visitors it is still a striking landmark worth a visit. The beach of Camber Sands is just a short drive away and has miles of sandy beach and dunes to explore. Or visit the rock pools at low tide on the pebbly beach at Pett Level, just a 5 minute drive from Pett.

The Towns of Hastings and Ashford are around a thirty minute drive away and here you can get main line trains to London, if you wish to explore the capital for a day. If you wish to take a day trip to the continent the Eurostar can be picked up from Ashford International station and trains to Paris, Lille and Brussels are available. Alternatively the ferries run from Dover just 45 minutes away or the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone a 45 minute drive.

Mixed feelings

"We stayed for a week in this cottage for our family holiday in July 2018 with our three young children. We had a good time, but that was not especially thanks to the property, which is ok, but can improve on quite a few points. Reservation and payment went smoothly and the instructions on how to get the key were adequate. The directions to the property were good, but we did miss it twice before we saw it. Perhaps a sign by the road would help. The cottage is located in a quiet neighbourhood: we hardly heard any noises and only a few cars drove by. At night it is very quiet. Despite this remote feeling, everything is nearby: supermarkets in Hastings are only a couple of minutes away by car, as is the Pett Level Beach. Other tourist destinations are also easily reached by car. You enter the house through the garden. The garden is well kept and a nice place for the kids to play in. They loved the very big (and safe) trampoline. The ladder to reach it was not safely attached however and though the place under the trees gave it a lot of welcome shade in the hot weather, it also filled the trampoline with a lot of leaves. There is also a nice place to sit outdoors. The garden shed was a mess: it contained a lot of stuff, but it was all stacked on top of each other and some toys were broken. The first thing we noticed when we entered the cottage wasn?t very nice: downstairs (and in the entry hall in particular) we noticed a damp smell, which was quite astonishing if you take the long period of drought before our stay into account. We didn?t let it ruin our holiday, but it was unpleasant. We suspect the building has some structural problem or something of that kind, although the vapour hood emptying in the hall instead of outdoors doesn?t seem to help either. The house was cleaned, but it wasn?t done properly. The kitchen was particularly dirty: there were sticky handles on the cupboards, nor were they very clean inside, the oven?s and the microwave?s insides looked as if they hadn?t been cleaned for quite some time. On the other hand the kitchen was well equipped. The living room and dining place were cleaner (although there the damp smell was combined with the smell of the fireplaces, which didn?t make it better). In the living room we missed a coffee table (a minor issue), but the sofas need replacing soon: they weren?t comfortable anymore at all and looked unclean too (although they probably weren?t). The dining room was nice with a beautiful table. It was just a pity there was no possibility to for the owner to provide a high chair for our youngest. We had to bring our own. Upstairs was cleaner, too, but we didn?t like that all rooms were covered in carpet, which is much harder to keep clean than other materials. The carpet was pretty rough too and not pleasant to walk on barefoot. The bed sheets were clean and smelled freshly washed. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of clean towels. The bathtub showed it has been there for some time (the back panel was loosened and taped back on to the tub) and doubles as a shower too, although the shower head doesn?t go up high enough (because of the low ceiling) to take a shower if you are over 1.75 m tall. The information provided by the owner about the surrounding area is good, as is the one on how to use the wifi, but we lacked proper information on how to use the television (we didn?t manage to turn it on and had to watch the world cup football final on our laptop). There was information on how to use the rubbish bins, but if you are not used to the English system (we are from Belgium) it is too general. Overall, we had a lovely time in England, but the cottage was a bit of a disappointment. It has potential, but serious maintenance is needed. "

Thank you for taking the tine to give a comprehensive review, room by room. All points have been noted and we only wish you had made contact at the beginning of your stay, so that we could have tried to address some of your issues. We try our best to provide as much information in the welcome folder at the cottage without over loading guests. We have had many nationalities stay without any issues working the TV or understanding the clear instructions on rubbish and recycling. Again if you were struggling, contact numbers are provided and a quick call, could have remedied this. We are glad you found the location of the cottage a good base for your holiday. The cottage is very lucky to have a large, safe enclosed garden and we are glad your children enjoyed the trampoline, despite the leaves! The garden shed should have been locked and is not for guest use. Rose Mullion is a much loved family holiday home and consistently scores 4.5 rating or higher, and the housekeeper prides herself on her presentation and clean before each guest.

Rose Mullion Cottage July 2018

"This was our second stay in the cottage this year. The cottage has everything you require, and is in an excellent location for exploring the area. Our son came with us this time, he has an intolerance to Gluten. We were concerned that we would not be able to find pubs that served suitable meals and accepted dogs. All the pubs we visited, including the two in the village, went out of their way to meet his needs and provided delicious food. The weather was excellent and we were able to enjoy long walks next to the coast. We particularly enjoyed the walk around Rye Harbour and visiting the independent shops in Rye and Tenterden. We will be back."

Rose Mullion Pett early March 2018

"We booked a five night break unfortunately we had to delay our journey by one day due to the weather. The house was very warm and welcoming when we arrived and the owners had left coffee, tea, biscuits and chocolates for us. The nearest shop for general groceries is a few miles away so these were very welcome. They had also left coal and logs so we were able to light the fire when the weather became particularly cold. The local pubs are very welcoming, with log fires and provide very good food at reasonable prices. They also allow dogs in the bar. Take a torch with you, there is no street lighting in the evenings and the footpaths do not extend to the whole length of the road. We enjoyed long walks at Pett Level and Rye harbour and would recommend the area for dog owners. South east water turned the water off early on day one, fortunately the nearest pub continued to serve food and the water came back on mid-afternoon. We had problems with the electrics on day two, but the owner sent an electrician within 40 mins of being informed so we were able to enjoy our stay with minimal inconvenience. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

We will be back!!

"Lovely cosy cottage with a gorgeous inglenook! very comfortable sofas (no throws were there but we brought 2 for the dog!!) The bed was probably one of the most comfortable we have slept in! The kitchen was very clean with 99% of things that you would need (no corkscrew however!!) The bathroom was great with a large bath. The heating worked very well which was good as it was a cold weekend! The owner was extremely helpful when we contacted him at the beginning of the holiday, and was so kind to leave a birthday card and sweets!! There were lots of walks a stones throw from the cottage and the pub across the road was so welcoming. All in all we cant wait to go back!!!"

Lovely Cottage - small niggles

"The cottage is beautifully decorated, comfortable and in a very good location. Lovely friendly pub within walking distance serving an excellent menu and excellent food. A car is essential as the village has no shops or petrol stations in the area. Large garden nicely kept. Cosy and warm once you have mastered the heating boiler. Large lovely bathroom. Quality bedding. Unfortunately the welcome/information folder supplied by Amberley House had no information about the heating system or any of the kitchen appliances although it said they were enclosed. Although the area is flooded with good brochures/flyers about interesting activities and places to visit, again there was nothing in the folder. A cruet would have been welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rose Mullion Cottage and the niggles could easily corrected by Amberley House"

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and found some of the information on location and things to do useful in the Amberley House Cottages Welcome folder. Although we supply information for the folder, we do heavily rely on the owners providing information about the house, like heating etc we have asked that they add the necessary information for future guests.
