  • What a wonderful place!

    Posted by Carmen R. on 18/08/2021

    We have just returned from a lovely stay at Boarzell with extended family which will linger happily in the memory. The house is beautiful, with huge charm, comfort and great space. The layout worked perfectly for a large family and the pool, tennis court and pool table were a great draw for the younger family members. The owner could not have been nicer or easier to deal with. All in all, the stay exceeded our expectations in every respect and we hope we will be able to return. Highly recommended.

  • Fabulous!

    We had such a wonderful stay at Boarzell. What an incredibly impressive house and home. David was very helpful and communicative before we arrived, met us to show us around, and even offered to get some left belongings back to us after we left. The grounds are just beautiful and every room in the house is lovely. Highly recommended!

  • Fab!

    Posted by Stuart on 18/12/2019

    Fabulous house. Great entertaining space.

  • Stunning views, extremely comfortable, wonderfully spacious

    Posted by Emma on 04/06/2019

    What a place! The entrance hall alone made my holiday. We were warmly greeted by David who was easy to get in touch with although everything was perfect so we didn’t need to. We were three families with grandparents and plenty of young children. Everyone had a very comfortable and fun time. The layout and number of rooms mean that you can easily tuck yourself away but never feel too far from it all. The kitchen is a wonderful heart of the house and there are comfy chairs everywhere. We would definitely return.

  • Fantastic!

    Posted by Rosemary on 13/03/2019

    The house was fantastic. All the rooms were excellent. David the owner was a very nice man who showed us around on arrival. The bedrooms were superb with beautiful bedding and mattresses and pillows. The views were excellent and we wish we could have visited in the summer when all the garden was in full bloom. A great time was had by all our family to celebrate sons 50th birthday and our 55 years of marriage A+++

  • Incredible!

    Posted by Amanda on 25/01/2019

    We booked the wonderful Boarzell in late November for a weekend away with friends. The booking process was simple and as it was for a birthday, we were even able to request champagne on arrival from our host, the owner David. What a lovely touch!

    The house, simply put, is incredible. It more than lived up to expectations with its vast entrance hall, grand rooms and expansive gardens. We were somewhat unlucky with the weather, however lounging by the open fires with a glass or two of claret was an experience in itself. We made good use of the facilities including the snooker table and table tennis and my children had an incredibly fun time exploring the gardens in their wellies. With a large kitchen and views to die for, the group was easily catered for in the house, however we also ate at The Bell in Ticehurst, which is in close proximity to the house as are many other eateries and places of interest.

    We didn’t want to leave at the end of the weekend and I am already looking forward to our next visit to this fabulous property. Thank you very much David and family!
