Thank-you Fiona and Alan, we had a really lovely stay. The house is in a gorgeous location in a very private lane surrounded by trees. The room is spacious and comfortable with a lovely view of the garden. Fiona and Alan are wonderful hosts and made us feel completely at home, and we loved interesting, quirky, old town Hastings!
We cannot recommend the secret garden retreat enough. Calm, laid back and very welcoming atmosphere in a beautiful setting. Fiona and Alan were so lovely, accommodating and perfect hosts. We felt comfortable immediately. The breakfast was delicious and made with love and care. My son (4.5) wanted to know why we could not stay another night and why Fiona and Alan didn't eat breakfast with us. It was a relaxing and cool retreat from London and we would absolutely return. Highly recommended.
We stayed with Alan and Fiona in their lovely woodland home for two nights
with our two year old daughter. The room was very nice, spacious and
tastefully decorated and they were most welcoming and accommodating of our
needs. We had a pleasant sleep and awoke to the sound of birdsong.
Breakfast was varied with toast, cereal, fruit and pancakes, and an even
more varied selection of teas. Our daughter loved their chickens and we all
enjoyed the beautiful hillside gardens and winding path down to the front
door. Alan and Fiona could not have been nicer to us and we had a really
lovely stay. Highly recommended.
