Here’s what people have said about their stay at Darwin Cottage:


Two couples

Had a great time here. Weather has been cold, but we have been warm and cosy in the cottage. It has been a great location from which to explore the sights of the south coast. Don’t miss Sunday night – live music and good food at “La Locanda del Duca”! Many thanks to Tanya & Paul for a super stay.



We come here for a week in March every year. This is our 7th consecutive year! Long may it continue. We love a) Darwin Cottage b) the local walks and c) L’Exquis in Eastbourne! Many thanks for everything Tanya.



We had a lovely stay, my daughter said it was amazing just like home because she has the same duvet covers! Darwin Cottage had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. For children we would recommend the science observatory at Herstmonceux, my daughter had a great time.


Mum, Grandma and children







Lovely cottage, exceeded expectations. Very comfortable, well equipped and the fresh loaf etc was a lovely touch – thank you. Lots of helpful information about local area. We enjoyed trips to Brighton, Knockhatch and Beachy Head. The children loved the toys and books. Highly recommend.

Thank you very much for the supplies. This has been another lovely holiday. We have stayed here 6 or 7 times and it is always good. Walking, Glyndebourne Opera, National Trust, all as good as ever. Very little rain except Tuesday 18th, massive thunderstorm at night.

2nd visit to this cottage, first time was in October and we liked it so much we decided to return again! We enjoy being able to walk from the doorstep and leave the car behind. Weather has been kind to us, cold but no rain. On our last day we visited Lewes, which was very interesting and the home of Harvey’s Brewery – their beers are recommended!! The local brewery at Litlington called the Long Man is also excellent. The Plough and Harrow at Litlington is good for food & beer. The Tiger Inn at East Dean is also another good stopping point on a walk from the cottage!! Looking forward to returning to the cottage next year!

Thank you for the warm and festive welcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage – hibernating, playing family games and watching films, along with a fantastic day out at Drusillas and a visit to the see at Birling Gap. Hope to visit again one day.
