We stayed at Jessie for a few days in November whilst visiting relatives in the area. The location was absolutely perfect for us, so quiet and peaceful. Even a local power failure in the area on our first night could not dampen our enthusiasm for a most enjoyable stay at a lovely Shepherd's Hut. We will almost certainly be paying a return visit.

I had a really wonderful time staying at Jessie and discovering the area. Neighbours were lovely (the sheep!) and the wood burner made for some delighfully cosy evenings. The hut is equipped with everything one might need (and I mean absolutely everything), and comes with helpful tips for enjoying the area. I would absolutely recommend, and come back myself.

Lovely little hideaway. So peaceful, lovely view. Highly recommended.

A rural, scenic and quiet getaway - perfect to unwind.

1st class break highly recommended

We LOVED our stay, everything was absolutely perfect. Even Storm Anthony didn't dampen our experience.

It was a fantastic cosy home from home. Even in the summer, seeing a beautiful fire made the evenings so comfortable and romantic. Everything we could have asked for.

Absolutely loved our stay at Jessie. The owners have thought of everything. It's beautifully decorated, well designed, spotlessly clean & very comfortable. Everything you can possibly need is supplied. It's a lovely spot and we particularly liked the feeling of privacy. It's just you & the wildlife, which we saw plenty of. We decided within 10 minutes of arrival that we definitely wanted to come back and straight way booked another stay for the autumn. We had a minor electrical problem early on in our stay but one call to the owner & it was sorted out very fast & efficiently. Very much looking forward to returning.

We had such a lovely stay in Jessie. We stayed for two nights which was a perfect amount of time for such a warm and cosy space. It was beautifully presented, clean and very comfortable. The bed mechanism was easy to use and therefore a clever way to make the most of the space. The countryside views were wonderful with plenty of wildlife to spot. Even though the weather was not kind on this trip it felt so cosy inside listening to the rain on the roof. A perfect long weekend destination. Classic Cottages were, as ever, a delight to deal with from start to finish.

Jessie is a fantastic little property, with every piece of equipment you could possibly need for a short break away and more. We loved how quiet it was, that it was in a completely dog-proof orchard, the thoughtful touches like dog towels, dog bowls, the food essentials and toiletries and overall, how comfortable it was.
The surrounding area is fabulous to explore - there are vineyards, lovely country walks with lots of wildlife to spot, and it's not far to the sea. We loved it!

Jessie was the perfect get away for my wife and I. We enjoyed walking through the local trails. If you need some peace and quiet with all modern comforts. Jessie is just the place to stay.

We have just returned from a long spring weekend in Jessie. The shepherd's hut was immaculately presented and welcoming, making for a very relaxing stay. We were able to walk 7 miles from the front door into the beautiful East Sussex countryside, but also use as a base to visit local attractions. Highly recomended.

We had such a wonderful stay at Jessie - the hut was so cosy! Literally the only people there so it felt so private and secluded. We loved lazy mornings watching the sheep in the opposite field. There's lots of lovely country walks and it's close to Battle & Rye (which are definitely worth a visit). Everything you could possibly need is provided, and it's lovely and clean. Also great that dogs are allowed! Thanks for a fab stay, we didn't want to leave :)
