We've just discovered we're directly on Avenue Verte - so perfect for London to Paris cycling trip!

The End Cottage was built in 17th century & has many of its original features still well preserved and intact. This is our first house & we very much enjoy the mixture of modern & vintage features.

The End Cottage is in a quiet village called Rotherfield, with towns of Crowborough & Tunbridge Wells nearby. There's number of pubs within walking distance & plenty of nice country walks near by.

The space

On the ground floor, we have a sitting room, with a big comfy sofa, which is facing beautiful wood burner (and less important TV), and a breakfast bar with two 'tractor seat' stools. Fully equipped kitchen is half a level down past the sitting room. Kitchen has a view & access to the back garden, which is equipped with seating area. We have BT cable tv, with number of various channels, including BT Sports and there's a good wifi throughout the house.

Your room is on the 1st floor. There's a day bed, which is a single during the day/night and can be extended to a double for the night too. Understandably, there's much less space left within the room once the bed is extended. There's a desk area / work area with a computer, which you're welcome to use. There's a small landing and a bathroom on the first floor too. This bathroom is shared between us.

On the second floor, we have our main bedroom, where I & my wife stay.

As you may be able to tell from the pictures, there is a lot of exposed wooden beams throughout our house. Number of these are fairly low and you will need to be careful not to hit your head if you're taller than us (I'm 175 cm and I just get away with it). Stairways are rather narrow & possibly steep, so you need to be careful & fairly agile.

Guest access

You're welcome to use anything you like, from TV, hairdryer, washing machine to wifi or coffee machine.

We have a secure garage at the back of our garden, where you can safely store bicycles & other stuff.

Interaction with guests

I & my wife live here. We may occasionally work from home, but mostly we commute to our offices in London every day.

Other things to note

We're happy to accommodate well behaved pets. We don't have any pets at the moment as our busy work schedule doesn't quite allow us to enjoy pets full time, however, we use sharemydoggy website and here and there borrow someone's dog to stay with us - this is only at some weekends.

Staying with Vil and Lucy was wonderful. They are lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home. We found the room cosy and comfortable and slept very well. The house is very clean and tidy. We used the kitchen and garden and Vil and Lucy made this very easy. They definitely go the extra mile for their guests. The village is very quaint and has a couple of pubs, a corner store and a lovely coffee shop. The area is beautiful countryside and having your own transport to explore would be advisable. We would love to stay with Vil and Lucy again.

Vil and Lucy were such lovely, helpful hosts! I was only down for one night stay, but they went out of their way to collect be too and from the station and also provided another pick up, which was above and beyond! The house is a gorgeous country house and is conveniently situated in the village. Great pub just meters away from their door. Room was immaculate, bed cosy, clean and comfortable. I throughly enjoyed my stay here and will do so again if I am in the area again. Thank you Vil and Lucy!

Vil & Lucy are excellent hosts, they are very friendly and accommodating. The room is clean, comfortable and exactly as described. The house itself is a beautiful old English cottage with tasteful modern conveniences, 10/10 would recommend.

Lucy and Vil are a lovely couple who made us feel really welcome when we needed a room at very short notice. The room itself is really lovely, and the house is beautiful and full of character. It is great to find a dog-friendly place where the people genuinely love dogs - Lucy and Vil made Monty the cocker spaniel's stay extra special with toys and a dog bed ready and waiting in the room. A wonderful room and lovely people!

Vil and Lucy were excellent communicators - we arrived 2 hours later than we wanted to because of the traffic - but they did everything to make sure we settled in. Their house is gorgeous and spotless! Vil said the bedroom was small, but even with the bed pulled out, there was plenty of space. The bed was very comfy and we were given fresh towels (we didn't use them!, they are in the top drawer). The cottage is easy to find, just along the high street and the area is very quaint. My husband and I would have loved to spend longer, but we were playing at a festival, so a very quick pit stop. Thank you Lucy and Vil, it is a clearly a home filled with love.

Vil was an excellent host, with constant communication, the ability to allow us access to the house prior to the normal check in time for a quick shower after an early morning flight, made our quick trip a lot more comfortable and the place was spotless, very cute cottage, made to feel very homey, warming and clean. Thanks again - we would most definitely stay again should we ever visit the area again!

I & my wife Lucy have used Air B&B on our travels around the world & we're finally able to set up our own Air B&B. We like bit of travelling, bit of rock & roll, few pints of ale & the occasional Sunday roast. But we're easy going and we'll try anything. We've been to some incredible places from Myanmar to Zanzibar & enjoy meeting people from all various parts & cultures of the world.
