The cottage we stayed in was just as it was advertised, it was very well equiped, with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The hosts were very attentive with just the right level of contact while we were staying there, the location is very good, just a few minuets from the shops and beaches, The cream tea on arrival is a very nice touch. If we travel in that area again we would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful straw house in a beautiful surrounding. Our dog loved it walks are amazing. Spent Christmas week here would highly recommended it. The owners are lovely very helpfully. It is a working farm and if you ask the owners you can look around the farm. Would love to visit. Again.
We had a delightful 4-night stay at Daisy Byre. Very comfortable cottage, clean and modern, with everything you need for an enjoyable, relaxing break. We received a very warm welcome from the owners and were made to feel at home right from the start. Lovely hospitality by all, including the staff working on the adjacent farm. The complimentary passes to the farm were a bonus (as was a delightful evening in the theatre located on the farm watching a production of 'The Wind in the Willows'). A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The village of Wisborough Green and the surrounding West Sussex area has ...more
We can honestly say that the cottage was the most perfect one that we have ever stayed in. Louise and James had thought of every detail to make our stay comfortable and welcoming.
The owner was very pleasant and helpful, we found the accommodation very comfortable and had everything we needed and also exceptionally clean. It is in a good location and there are plenty of Places of Interest nearby to visit.
We cannot recommend this place enough. Brilliant accomodation, thoughtful touches & friendly owner .
Warm welcome on arrival with fresh homemade cakes on the table in the kitchen. The owners and staff were very kind and helpful throughout my stay. Plenty to do and see and well located for visits out. I definitely want to go back it’s such a good place to be. Many thanks to Mandy persuading me to see the animals even though I had my dog with me, just loved it. Thank you everyone.
Little Marshfoot is comfortable, cosy, very well equipped and ideally located for exploring the surrounding area. Pat was a friendly host who made us feel very welcome, suggesting attractions we might enjoy visiting nearby and recommending places to eat. Little Marshfoot is beautifully decorated and the little extra touches such as the fresh flowers and wine made this place even more special. We had a very relaxing break and hope we can return in the future.
Jubilee House is a great place to stay as it is so handy to shops and theatre and surrounding attractions in West Sussex. I recommend it highly.
The House is very clean and great equipped, except for a stove there is everything you need to feel comfortable. The Landlords are very nice. I highly recommend this property.
Everything at The Old Workshop was as described. We used it as a bolthole when helping our son to move house and it was a perfect haven of calm. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and provided some extra little touches that were much appreciated. Located in a pretty little village with a pub open walking distance. We would definitely use again.
Beaufort Barn is a lovely place to stay. Everything seemed new and was spotlessly clean. Lovely linens and towels, very well stocked kitchen, super power showers in the bathrooms. The countryside setting is so peaceful with easy and challenging walks from the front door. We’d love to return in the summer months too.
Beautiful location and property. 20 minute walk through peaceful countryside to reach the Griffin pub..really good pint of Sussex ale. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and gave us some good pointers. We went to Burling Gap on their recommendation and as a family who aren’t keen on crowds, really enjoyed this part of the coast. My family and i found this property very relaxing to stay in and would definitely stay again.
This is a lovely cottage. Much thought has gone into making a newish build look 300years old. Clever quirky bits inside and out, even in the brickwork. It showed the thoughtfulness of the owners even as they were renovating. There are mod cons where you want them in the kitchen and bathroom, but they were tastefully done to fit the building. Beds were very comfortable. Heather was very friendly and attentive to our needs even though Roger was very ill. The courtyard planting encouraged butterflies. There were wrens just outside the window, and a cleverly placed mirror meant I coul...more
Clean, well appointed and comfortable with many thoughtful extras including basic groceries, ice, toiletries and an awesome tv with movies included. We had a lovely chilled out stay- many thanks to Ann the owner who was both friendly and entirely unobtrusive.
Eve’s cottage is lovely and is even better than the photos show. Ian was great to deal with and have us lots of recommendations for walks and eating places. The cottage is immaculate and was spacious enough for the 6 of us. It is extremely well equipped and we especially enjoyed the wood burning stove. It is well situated in the centre of Arundel where there is lots to do and explore. I would definitely recommend it !
Just back from a very comfortable stay. Although the weather was a little mixed, we had everything we needed in the accommodation. Kitchen was well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, cloths, tea towels and some cleaning products. Good heating and plenty of hot water. Parking outside was fine, if a little busy at school time with parents parking to collect children from school. The village shop had all the basics, the Cricketers pub was friendly, but the other pub was temporarily closed. We did one walk from the village, but generally we explored further afield. The deer park at Pet...more
Beautifully clean and fitted out cottage in a lovely village. We came here to escape a new bathroom being installed at our home and we feel so lucky that we chose to come here. If it was possible to give it more than 5 stars we would .
A lovely house extremely well equipped. Close to country walks and NT houses and the coast. Very hospitable hosts. Delicious cakes on arrival. Toys books and games left for guests. We had a lovely week.
I've stayed in many holiday cottages, but The Barn at Tillington has to be one of the very best, if not the best by far. You can completely trust the photos of the property, and in fact the reality is even better. It's beautifully designed, decorated, and furnished. The facilities, fixtures and fittings are excellent, lovely kitchen with excellent quality appliances and kitchenware. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with lots of light and wonderful views. It really is a cut above. And the location is perfect, so quiet and peaceful. Petworth Park is just across the road, and beautiful Petw...more
I've been to Beacon Cottage before - loved it last time and loved it again this time. It manages to be both compact and roomy and is well-equipped and immaculately turned out. Always snug too. I was using it as base for a weekend walking on the South Downs, for which its situation by the foot of Ditchling Beacon is perfect, allowing me to start my walks from the front door. Although in quite a quiet place, it is only a few minutes off the A23, so is easy to get to, and only a few miles from Brighton. The owners are so kind and friendly too, and always make me feel welcome. Highly recommended.
Great little property that was not very little. Whilst only set up for two, with just the one bedroom, there was plenty of room for us and it felt almost spacious. Very tastefully fitted out with decent quality furniture and an excellent bed. Pippa was a delightful host and made us very welcome. Location good in a lovely part of the country. We had a great week.
We had an excellent fortnight in this quality property. We look forward to returning in the near future.
This was our second visit to the cottage. It’s a charming place in beautiful surroundings and the hosts are lovely.
Excellent cottage with stunning views. Luxurious comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen made this very homely. Lovely skies during sunrise and sunset and lots of stars at night. Very efficient log burner and underfloor heating made our stay very cosy. Would love to visit again another season!
We loved our stay in Longwall House at the weekend. It's a cosy house in a great location with stylish features and all mod cons and we were extremely comfortable there; it also had lots of considerate additions and helpful notes from Nick the owner. Please pass on our compliments.
A very clean, comfortable and well stocked property. Lovely towels and fluffy dressing gowns. Kitchen equipment and accessories excellent. Your really don't need to bring anything with you. And there was a lovely Christmas Tree. We had a lovely New Year in Rye with friends - would highly recommend Little Willow.
The title says it all. Also we will return next year for a longer stay because the accommodation is so good.
Lovely neat comfortable cottage. Adjacent owners helpful but not obtrusive. A quiet hideaway location with great walks from the door. No local facilities, but walk to pub across fields possible.
An excellent barn conversion with stunning views over the countryside. Really comfortable, cosy cottage with everything you could need and furnished to a very high standard. Owners Carol & Peter provide a warm welcome and are very helpful. As birdwatchers we loved it, we seemed to see more wildlife from the cottage than we did at the nearby RSPB reserve. Location is great with lots to do nearby both in good and bad weather. Lovely village setting with a good local shop, tearooms and pub. Will definitely be returning.
This is a lovely comfortable cottage, perfect for one or two people. Very good position to explore Storrington and the South Downs area. Would highly recommend it.
The Cottage is very spacious and comfortable in a beautiful location. We were attending Goodwood Revival and it was a lovely peaceful haven to come home to. We loved sitting outside watching the wild life. The hosts, David and Lucy, were very welcoming. We will definitely be back. Dave and Grace Stevenson, Allithwaite
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautifully modified granary building which every modern comfort you could wish for. The setting and grounds are magnificent. We had a very warm welcome from the owners and enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing and peaceful stay.
This is our second stay at the Stables. Everything was excellent except the weather! Vyvyian on hand if you have any queries or problems, which we didn’t. Highly recommended.
The cottage is in an amazing location with such a spectacular view from the living room couch! The property had everything we needed for a short stay and was very clean and well laid-out. The owner was super friendly and helpful and made sure we felt at home in the cottage. Even though the cottage is in the middle of beautiful countryside with incredible views, it is still easy to access with it only being a couple of miles up wide country lanes from the A27. Arundel is a short drive away and has plenty to see and do, including Arundel cathedral and castle which I would highly recommend visiti...more
Very stylish house, great interior, design bathrooms, very clean and in a superb location right across the Arundel castle site.
A very well equiped apartment which was comfortable and clean. Well positioned for seafront and shops. A wide range of resteraunts to suit all tastes within easy walking distance. Parking was ok but could be a little aukward at busy times like the airshow. A very considerate welcome pack on arrival along with a very useful personal greeting. Overall a great stay in an apartment that I would recommend.
We stayed at Rosemead cottage over Christmas. It was perfect for our needs with a lovely garden and cosy sitting room. The owners are really friendly and helpful and the house extremely well equipped with everything that was needed to cook a Christmas dinner for 6. We would definitely stay there again.
We loved almost everything about our Christmas stay at this beautiful lodge. It was the cleanest we think we have ever stayed in, there are some beautiful touches that make you feel very comfortable and we would highly recommend. (These two very small things should be known to future bookers - consider carefully if you need reliable WiFi (we had to reboot the router regularly and couldn’t get WiFi downstairs in the bedrooms) and be aware that the owner is overlooking you (mainly in the main bedroom and the lounge) as the property is attached to the main house through quite a thin connecting do...more
We really enjoyed our stay in The Lakehouse. We liked the stylish decoration and the comfort of the property, which gave us plenty of space to relax. The views are wonderful as the lake itself is picturesque and has tasteful artworks, and beyond the lake are just fields and woods. At night the view from the large patio doors is just wonderfully dark, as you cannot see any lights from anywhere. This is such a treat for city-dwellers. The owners are extremely hospitable and friendly, they provided all sorts of lovely welcome items, and were just next-door if we needed them for anything. The...more
This was our third stay at Brooke's Cottage, which rather indicates that it is a great holiday home. It is certainly a super comfy base for walking the South Downs Way, which is literally on the doorstep. There are also other walking opportunities too in Jevington. The weather for our holiday was also perfect, as well as the views from the cottage. Also, there was no fear of getting chilly at Brooke's Cottage: it is certainly a cosy base!
An excellent property, in a great central location within the ancient citadel. Very clean and well furnished.
The property was in a great location, very accessible, and was very well maintained. All facilities were available and it really was a home from home. The village had all amenities close at hand.
Sea Loft is a cosy, characterful holiday home which we really enjoyed staying at. Despite being behind the Seaview pub (where the food is good) its a quiet location, apart from the occasional seagull, or dog walker going by to the beach which is 100 yards away. A two minute walk will take you to the Clockhouse or the Tudor Tavern pubs, an Indian and a Chinese restaurant, a decent fish and chip shop, the local small grocery store, and two cafes. Brilliant! And a bit further up the road is a great Indian restaurant called the Masala Lounge. Despite the horrible weather we had a great time, and ...more
This apartment was great for 2 people. Plenty of space and good facilities. It was nice to have your own car parking space.
Our third Autumn break in Sussex, and by far the most welcoming cottage - well stocked kitchen and comfy rooms. Good location for walks and very interesting museums at Amberley, Fishbourne and Tangmere...and Petworth House within walking distance. A very pleasant stay!
lovely area to stay with a lovely cottage xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
We booked Rose Cottage as a base while we negotiated on a new home, having sold our house in Cornwall. It proved an excellent choice, providing a very comfortable and well equipped base to return to each day. Pat and Nick could not have been more helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this as a great holiday home.
We stayed at Fig Tree Cottage to celebrate Christmas with our son and his family who live in Sussex. The facilities and equipment in the cottage were excellent enabling us to cook Chrismas Dinner for 7 with ease. There is a quirky side to the cottage but this added to its charm. James the owner could not have been more helpful providing more cultery and offering additional chairs when he realised the number of people we were catering for. We will definitely be back.
Spacious and beautiful house, great views, secluded, but close to South Downs Way and local villages.
This was a repeat visit by popular request from all the family. It was excellent again. A very good, quiet location with helpful hosts. Very close to Petworth shops, restaurants, pubs etc. Petworth House and Park are just across the road with extensive walks.
The cottage was lovely, big enough for us and our three children. It was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was really well stocked, all the home comforts you need on a self catering holiday. It was a real home away from home, we had a brilliant time and hopefully will be back next year!
On arriving I was shocked, I knew the house would be beautiful but it was far beyond my expectations! We had fabulous weather so spent alot of time in the charming pool. The gardens are gorgeous with speaking hills for miles and the house interia is full of amazing art. The perfect house for a large group with lovely kitchen and lots of compfy nooks to relax in. Could not have enjoyed our stay more, would love to come back! X
This converted garage has everything two people may ask for: it is quiet, spacious and sparkling clean. The owners are delightfully friendly and helpful. It has a kitchenette with two bar stools - while we did not use it, it is equipped for i.e. breakfast or simple cooking. Good bed, though not too large. The bathroom is somewhat on the small side and there is not much space for your cosmetics, no shelves apart from the mirror's. Decent towels. However, the shower is large. No bathtub. WIFI is stable and fast enough. There is a sofa and a large enough TV, but we did not use these.
It was a real pleasure coming back to the cottage each day while exploring Sussex. Our 16-month daughter loved the walled garden and was fascinated by all the art. It was great being able to borrow a high chair as well. We hope to come back again next year.
An excellent base, roomy and well laid out. An ideal spot for walking, cycling and chilling out. Road access to Maidstone or south to the coast is good and generally trouble-free. Headcorn the next small village is quaint and worth visiting for shopping and eating.
Excellent property run by very helpful and thoughtful family - thanks for the Lemon cake! Great location to explore West Sussex, with an abundance of nearby vineyards, quality pubs and historic towns all on walking routes.
We had a lovely week, the cottage was lovely, the kitchen well fitted and the welcome pack very well received. Hilary was very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday
Ideal quiet cottage with lovely furnishings, gorgeous garden, french windows, glassed in roof just as in web pic. Wi fi available, small TV, lovely bedroom and flowers arranged beautifully for you, with welcome cake and fruit. Book lover's paradise, books for every taste. Helpful and friendly hosts but may be selling so check you get Liz and Chris! Own parking, very relaxing place to stay.
Thank you SO much Paul & Lesley for yet another wonderful stay at The Lambles- we feel so at ease when we stay with you. Everything we needed was there- and more....and you are such good hosts. We will be back- hopefully in the Summer when it's a bit drier! A perfect place to stay for us and Oscar!
Very nice cottage in an inspiring and amazing landscape, 100% old Engeland. Perfect view on the Arundel Castle from our bedroom window and beautiful in the early morning with a misty ribbon above the Arun river.
Mallards is an excellent cottage, comfortable and with a wonderful hostess. Beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended.
We were here for the second time and again we were not disappointed. Beautiful, well equipped home. Great walking opportunities and close to Hastings, Rye and Winchelsea. Very helpful and friendly owner next door.
This was our 3rd or 4th stay at Tail End Cottage, and remains a firm favourite. The cottage is small, so ideal for just 2 of us, and is perfectly located in the centre of Rye. The kitchen is very well equipped, and although the bathroom is small, it is well designed. There were new sofas in the sitting room since our last visit - very comfy indeed. The open fire was made up ready for us to use, and although it wasn't particularly cold we did use this in preference to the central heating.
Croft Cottage is charming, and so quiet. Plenty of room for the 2 of us, and very comfortable. There is lots of very useful storage space. The heating, much needed at this time of year, was very efficient, and there was plenty of hot water. We liked the garden too. The local shops were all interesting and within easy walking distance. Seaford is an attractive seaside town, and it was lovely to be able to walk to the esplanade and breathe the fresh sea air. Wonderful! Wifi would have been a bonus.
Yet another very enjoyable stay at Lazy Meadows. Wonderful location and comfortable house. Surprisingly peaceful spot
The Apartment was exactly as described on website and supplied details/ photographs. Close to the station.
Quiet restful holiday break in very pleasant surroundings. Excellent accommodation. Warm welcome from Mrs Wiseman set the tone for the holiday.
Had a fantastic long weekend. Beautiful location with the countryside and amazing walks right on your doorstep. Ideal for those with dogs.
Our second time at this cottage which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will no doubt return at a future date
Beautifully furnished extremely comfortable and very well equipped cottage. Great location Highly recommend.
Well placed for visiting family. Comfortable place to stay Enjoyed the eggs for breakfast. Everything we needed
We have been coming to this cottage for the last 15 years and it is always a home from home to us . The owners are very warm and helpful and the welcome pack they provide when you arrive is outstanding and most appreciated. The cottage is well equipped should you need the washing machine, tumble drier etc and is ideally located for visits to Brighton , Arundel , Eastbourne and Hastings. Locally Lewes Town centre is worth a visit if you are interested in Antiques , collectables etc there is the Flea Market and a couple of Antique shops. Middle Farm a short drive away is a working farm ideal ...more
Both my partner and I thought that the apartment was wonderful. We both enjoyed staying there. It is very well laid out.
An excellent week at this lovely cottage.We used it as a base whilst walking the South Downs Way.Very peaceful and quiet and the owners were extremely helpful.
A pleasant cottage in a quiet location with good access to local attractions. Fabulous outlook from the cottage and we especially enjoyed the activities of the resident kingfishers. Owner very helpful. Would recommend.
Set down a mile from the main road and surrounded by fields, a lovely warm cottage, ideal for relaxing.
Where to start with Priors Barn - probably one of the nicest, most peaceful stays we've had. The barn itself is tucked away down a winding country road within Maresfield and surrounded by huge conifers, which makes it all the more peaceful and tranquil. The amount of outside space is just right with a good sized gravel drive and an amazing decking area with a small stream running below. This was the perfect place to have a coffee/breakfast in the morning, or a BBQ in the evening. It has all the mod cons you could want, even down to an Amazon Alexa device, which was actually extremely han...more
Lovely cottage in a quiet, rural location. Everything was pristine and we were extremely comfortable to the extent we have already booked again! Warm and attentive welcome from the host but not at all intrusive during our stay: a perfect balance. A pleasure to watch the animals on the estate. An excellent property: highly recommended. Also beautiful hamper, a lovely Christmas treat, thank you!
Roomy and comfortable property in a good location. Hosts very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive.
We spent two weeks at Selden Black. The studio was very well equipped with everything you might need. Owners were very lovely and helpful and on hand if you have any problems. We had a lovely time!
Wonderful cottage that sleeps 10 comfortably with lots of space inside and out for a family occasion.
Great cottage that had everything we needed. Helpful owners who where there if we needed them but left us alone.
Great 5 days over Christmas. Lovely house, ideal for a family Christmas. Kitchen perfect for cooking lunch for 8. Owners helpful and friendly and house was prepared immaculately. Nice touch was Christmas tree decorated and in situ for our stay. Lots to do in area, good shops and easy access to seaside.
We highly recommend staying at Lychgate Cottage. We were there over Christmas and the owners had done everything possible to make the cottage festive - lights and decorations, even Christmas presents! The cottage was warm, cosy and very comfortable, especially the pillows and duvet. Lots of extras were provided - many more than usual in our experience. And the location was perfect - we enjoyed the church bells on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
We had a great stay at walnut tree cottage Wonderful location,beautiful cottage & lovely owners Would not hesitate to recommend.
My husband and I were very happy with our stay at Calceto. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and recommended some good local restaurants and pubs. The apartment was very comfortable, clean, quiet and well-equipped. It is also conveniently located, a short walk from Arundel station and just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Arundel, which made it easy for us to explore the town. There are also some nice walks close by along the River Arun.
We have stayed here 8 times whilst visiting friends and family in Sussex and think of it as 'our cottage'! It is always very welcoming and in a lovely location. The only non positive I can think of is that the lane to it is quite a ride being very pot-holed but that wouldn't put us off staying again.
Happy Days at Brewery cottage.lovely to feel part of Arundel’s history in this wonderful cottage. To spend Christmas here was a real treat. Felt at home immediately in this cosy well located home. Thankyou.
Lovely house, everything we needed for a comfortable and practical base for the beach and exploring the areas attractions.
A most welcoming accommodating and considerable host. Bungalow in excellent condition with everything functional and in excellent working order. We had a great nice relaxing stay. In short walking distance from some excellent South Downs walks. Brighton is an hour away; a nice country side drive especially on a rainy day. Amenities- Tesco, Sainsbury’s & Waitrose all in 3-4 miles driving distance. A very nice countryside retreat.
Great base, cosy and comfortable. Lovely welcome from the owners. Spent the week catching up with family and friends, the afternoons at Goodwood races.
Brilliant stay at Regency House. Lots of character and comfort in a great location! Great space easily catering to a large group. A little worried about parking but we all found a space just outside. Definitely recommend!
We reccomend this beautiful place in UK ! Very nice Place to spend holiday time and Ideal place for artist !
Lovely location within walking distance of everything in Arundel. The cottage was very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Beautiful views from the top bedroom. Parking tricky during the Festival, but we enjoyed joining in with lots of events.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Great base to explore the wonderful countryside of the South Downs.
Lovely place to stay very peaceful and perfect garden for our little dog. Owners very welcoming and helpful, good base for exploring the area from would definitely recommend.
We have stayed in numerous cottages all over the UK and this one rates very highly indeed. It was exactly as described in the brochure, very comfortable and very clean. The owners were both welcoming and helpful. It proved to be an ideal centre for what we wanted with the bonus of having a good number of National Trust properties within striking distance. As an added bonus the village pub was good and served excellent meals
We enjoyed our stay at Tarante. It is a comfortable and spacious flat with easy parking. Well placed for enjoying Arundel, and all the town offers. The owner was very helpful and considerate. We make regular family visits to this part is sussex and will be very happy to return to Tarante again.
Lee Cottage is truly the most welcoming, spacious and well-equipped house you could ever wish to rent. Choosing a place to host Christmas for family and friends is a daunting experience, especially when planning a full Christmas dinner and trimmings in a kitchen that you don't know, but we actually flew through the process; finding everything we needed. Everyone that visited us at Lee Cottage, left saying it was the best Christmas they had ever had; actually laughing and crying with joy. The house made them feel cosy and loved; nobody actually wanted to leave. We would certainly recommend sta...more
it is a perfect place for us and nigel to stay and to meet the owners who are very nice.we will be coming down again in june.
Perfect location to get around the area. We had a lovely relaxing time at Clare’s Cottage. We were given a warm welcome by the owners and they had treated us to a lovely ‘fresh farm welcome pack’ - eggs, bacon, bread, butter and milk. The cottage had lovely soft beds and bedding. We loved stoking the fire in the evenings for extra cozy feel, although the underfloor heating was lovely and perfect temperature. Our son loved the chickens in the farm and visiting the farm shop to buy their fresh eggs. We visited the local pub lovely food - a great plateful! If you love castles (as we do) this is t...more
Great location.Close to places of interest. Owners of property very approachable.Helped us sort out a minor problem.
Very clean, comfortable and well-provisioned cottage in great location for Rye, Dungeness and Camber Sands itself. Quiet, though with easy access to a couple of shops and pubs.
Property is good for short term stay 2 - 4 days. Cooking facilities limited and suffered problems Fine if you are eating out in the evening Stairway access difficult if you have heavy luggage Fantastic gardens and view
We had a lovely time at this neat and tidy cottage. We had everything we needed - and more - and the house is great for a family of 5 like us. Perfect location, we hope to be back!
A spacious house with a very well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room. Loved the fire in the kitchen. It would be good to stay in better weather as the garden, with numerous sitting areas and bbq, would be well used. We intend to stay again.
A delightful homely cottage, clean, light and spacious and very well equipped. Would highly recommend this cottage which is ideally situated in the beautiful South Downs.
As we have traveled all over Great Britain during the last years, and have seen many cottages, we can judge the quality of a cottage within the first 30 seconds. We can be short about this cottage: excellent! - Remote and quiet location - Friendly owners - Large enough cottage for 4 grown ups. - Countryside and lots of trees, plants and flowers surrounding the cottage - Interesting places to visit close by - Perfect locations for walking - Supermarket close by - 2 Hour travel distance from Dover (if you come from abroad by car) - No WiFi though, but if that is the only minor we could...more
Wonderful in everyway. It is a beautiful location and cottage. Amazing,
Enjoyed our family stay, grounds stunning and suitable for letting dogs explore the forest. House warm and welcoming with very comfy beds. Host greeted us on arrival which was a nice touch Thank you
Really lovely, cosy cottage with a friendly and helpful owner. We would definitely come back. Highly recommended.
We all enjoyed our stay at River cottage the location was excellent to visit several National Trust gardens , it was also a very peaceful location with no passing traffic, the added bonus was the short walk to the river which was a wildlife haven we saw barn owls on several occasions flying early evening and late morning , two badgers and deer. The walk along the river was wonderful all you could see were meadows and the South Downs we would definitely return as the property had a nice atmosphere and was light and airy.
Generally very clean and well presented, beds very comfortable, sofas not so much. Heating worked well when it was on, unfortunately arriving on a chilly October day to find out from the owner that the heating didn't come on until two hours after we arrived, so we entered the property which is quite cavernous and was quite chilly and was a bit disappointing, not very welcoming; it also unfortunately went off during the day, OK if your out but not so good if your in.The main entry door could do with some draft proofing However we enjoyed our stay and would probably return at some future date.
A very comfortable barn conversion in an excellent location for visiting places of interest around the Sussex Coast and South Downs
Third time coming and we feel very at home. Everything is looked after. Excellent housekeeper. Absolutely comfortable
Very quiet rural and comfortable location. The barn was lovely and was everything we wanted . The location meant the whole family could easily visit from the coast and from London . The train station was only a short walk away. We would certainly love to come back. The barn would be 101% perfect with a microwave
Two couples wanted to complete their walk of the South Downs Way from Amberley to Eastbourne, and the location of this cottage, a few minutes drive from the trail, and about the middle of the walk, was ideal. The cottage is very clean, comfortable, well-equipped and tidy, with everything we needed for our stay. In fact, there were quite a few "extras" which enhanced our stay. Not only a large and useful collection of books and maps of the local area, but thoughtful touches like the welcome pack of wine, coffee and biscuits to help us settle in. The village has decent shops and faciliti...more
Really lovely cottage. Owners provided great information on Rye & where to go, what to see as well as tea, coffee and welcome hamper.
Whilst it is a nice cottage and well maintained the bed is really not suitable for two adults. It is far too small and very soft. We spent 3 nights of having really disturbed sleep before giving up and going home early. Advice to management - invest in a bigger bed!
We were given a very warm welcome from the owners of this lovely clean and cosy cottage. There are so many walks and places to visit that our only regret was not to be staying longer..
Lionel met us on arrival, told us what we needed to know and then left us to it. Perfect. The cottage is lovely and was really clean. There's plenty to do near by. We had a great time and would like to go back.
Harbinger's large, airy living space with its Eames armchairs, its B&O tv and beautifully designed log burner make relaxing, after enjoying the many delights of the South Downs, a real pleasure. The property is placed within easy reach of the many seaside resorts, not to mention Petworth, Arundel, Chichester, Goodwood etc. There is so much to see and do that I found that a week is no where near long enough to fully appreciate this astounding area.
We had a very pleasant stay in this flat overlooking the church and Petworth House. The location is very convenient for the shops and restaurants in Petworth and for exploring further afield. The owner made us feel very welcome and left us treats and ideas of places to visit. The flat was extremely comfortable, the only drawback is the lack of a parking space.
This cottage is excellent. Everything spotless. Beautiful garden. Is in a lovely village. Would definitely recommend a break in this cottage.
We had the most delightful stay in Martins Cottage. Though quite small, it was extremely comfortable. Well equipped and everything of good quality. As a ‘senior couple’ we did find the shower handset slightly difficult to use. Rosemary, the owner, made us so welcome and offered much helpful information. Bury, is lovely little village, and is a really good center to explore the Downs, without having to travel far. The local pub, The Squire and Horse, served lovely meals. If we ever came to this area again we would definitely stay in this charming cottage.
A lovely setting in a working farm. Great walks for our dog, lots of fresh air, and, above all, peaceful. Only a short distance from the city and a host of shops and a wide variety of interesting places to visit. We fully intend to return one day soon.
A comfortable stay and met our needs .We were made to feel very welcome. Comfortable and clean bed ensured we had a good night's sleep
Excellent short stay accommodation, very hospitable friendly accommodating owners. Easy access to the property and well suited for travellers to the Sussex downs and the cities of Chichester and Guildford. Unpretentious but unique property of good value.
We loved our stay in this beautiful old cottage. We had fires in the log burner, played board games, went for pub walks and explored Arundel. There's lots to do locally and we had a great time. The cottage was well kept and equipped - perfect for us.
This was our second stay at Apple barn. The barn is spacious, clean and very welcoming. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. It is equipped with everything to make your stay enjoyable. Although in a rural location it is not far from the towns of Arundel and Chichester. Our hosts, Becky and Simon are only too pleased to be of help. Thank you very much for the food gifts,which were much appreciated. We look forward to visiting again in the future!
Annie and Phillip are excellent hosts and make you feel really welcome. The location of the cottage is great for exploring West Sussex and it is a only short walk into Arundel, and an event shorter walk to the station. It's close to the A27 and the railway but you don't hear any noise in the cottage from either, so don't be concerned. If you are talking a dog there is a short walk you can take through a paddock and field without going on a road. Perfect for that early morning or late afternoon stroll. The view towards Arundel from the field is lovely. The cottage is well equipped and we enjo...more
We have enjoyed our stay at the Truffle Cottage very much and were happy to stay in and spend time "home" as the weather was not always inviting. The entire place is very charming, the fire place, the (partly) low ceilings and the wooden / stone floor as well as the shape of the building and the interior make this place very cosy. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The location is convenient as it is only a little walk to the city center. Shopping areas were easy to reach by foot and car. The owner was a very nice and helpful lady who was happy to welcome us even on sh...more
We had a very warm welcome from the owners of Roo Cottage and it is in a beautiful, quiet setting. The cottage had most things you would need, the kitchen was well equipped, the wi fi worked well and the bed was big and very comfortable. We found it an excellent base from which to explore. There are lots of stately homes, gardens, the seaside and pretty market towns near by. We enjoyed our stay very much!
There was nowhere to store food, other than the fridge, and a lack of cooking pots. However, we did enjoy our stay and will be happy to return.
Double bed uncomfortable and a spring poked through the mattress which could have caused injury. No facilities for drying washing indoors, only a rotary dryer behind garages enclosed by walls so little sunlight or breeze to dry washing. A clothes airer would have been most useful. Double room has no mirror or anywhere to sit to dry hair, apply makeup, etc. Twin room has no hanging space, our daughter had to share our wardrobe, which wasn’t ideal. Single room has no mirror for hairdrying etc, very important for a teenager. No shelf space in en-suite bathroom or in shower, which meant bending do...more
We had a great stay at Lavender cottage Alfriston. The cottage was warm and cosy on arrival. Full of character. The furniture is old but comfortable enough. Kitchen and bathrooms modern and clean. We had a problem with the upstairs shower , We informed the housekeeper and a plumber came out on A Sunday . Great service. We managed to find free parking locally , unloading was awkward , only because we had a great deal to unload with it being christmas . Although everything was good with the cottage we were disappointed with the lack of a christmas tree , or any christmas decorations . This is th...more
Very disappointed with this property located in a family compound where guests needs were very much secondary. Heating not on when we arrived and none in the bathroom at first until we asked the owner to check and it was adjusted but this should have been done beforehand. There were no instructions on how to regulate the temperature. Mattress was well past its due date to be changed. Insufficient noise barrier between property and adjacent garage and pool area where children played very noisily. Informed that someone left for work at 5.15 every morning and started car in garage ri...more
A very short walk to the sea, fresh seafood, comfortable cottage - very cosy and sea-sidey. A very cosy and sea-sidey cottage only a few minutes stroll from the beach and seafood vendors. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. We were a party of three so had ample space, but I do not think it would be suitable for 6 adults (only 1 bathroom/toilet).
The cottage was clean, modern & mostly comfortable. Poor lighting in the living area especially nighttime. Bed in the main bedroom was so close to the floor difficult to get in & out of. If an elderly person had been staying they would have found it awkward. Needs new mattress. We felt the kitchen needed more equipment...cups, mugs, cutlery. If there had been more of us staying we would have run out of things after every meal. Good spot for visiting Lewes, coast, NT properties, Charleston & Monks House. There was road noise but as we had a fan going at night....it was warm...we didn't real...more
This is the third time we have stayed in this cottage - but we were a little disappointed this time. On arrival the cottage was really cold. The downstairs bedroom has no radiator or additional heater and never really warmed up. There had been an invasion of masonry bees, which were dead and dying on many surfaces - we vacuumed them up a couple of times. Several features are tired and in need of some attention: the shower head in the upstairs shower wouldn't stay put; the shower leaked water into the kitchen; there were dozens of cobwebs; the handrail on the stairs was falling off; there was n...more
Very comfortable especially the huge bed. It was very nice to find the place lovely and warm when I arrived. Great place to stay if you don't have a car as big co-op couldn't be nearer and countryside walks on the doorstep. I did have a problem getting in and out of the rather steep sided bath as joints not what they were. My one criticism is that some of the cutlery and crockery needed washing before I could use them. Perhaps they could be checked between visitors? Otherwise lovely little place to stay.
We had a great time at the Farthings for a late summer getaway. The property is in a fantastic location near to West Wittering beach. The pool and games room are hidden gems in the cottage and we enjoyed the garden and outdoor living.
We had a very enjoyable stay at House on the Brooks. The layout was very good to accommodate our party.
We stayed at Oak House over the Easter weekend, it was perfect. Oak House is a gorgeous house and perfect for our family gathering. We were welcomed by a basket of goodies which was lovely. Great location for exploring Rye town and the surrounding areas. We cycled down to Camber Sands and Rye harbour with the kids. Will visit again. Thank you John
We had a great time at Shannon cottage. It’s a beautiful little cottage, and perfect for a couples get away. The cottage is in great condition and the bed was lovely and so comfy. The walks over the local downs and to towns nearby were gorgeous and Telscombe is a lovely little village. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I only have two tips for future guests...firstly the smoke detectors are super sensitive (not a terrible thing, nice and safe, but they would go off as soon as we used the oven or toaster), so make sure you use the extractor fan and window before doing any cooking. Also, some o...more
Very friendly and helpfull owners Plenty of room in the Shed. Needed an intensive cleaning after weeks of renting
We had a lovely stay. The photographs do not do the property justice. It is ideally located, quiet and well-laid out, decorated and furnished. A welcome bottle of wine and box of biscuits were a nice touch. During our stay, the owner got back to us straight away with answers to any questions we had. Would thoroughly recommend.
After busy Londen we (family with two adolescent children) wanted a couple of quiet days in the country. In France Cottage we found what we were looking for and more. The cottage has everything you need (dishwasher, washingmachine, oven, microwave etc etc) and lots of character. Proprietor Sara is a wonderful host, who told us much about the history of Patching and surroundings. Gave us good tips as well, i.e for swimming and visiting a bizarre church nearby, where a local artist has copied the Sixtine Chapel! Really special. Patching is lovely, we had some great walks there. Sara makes you fe...more
We liked the house a lot - clean, warm and comfortable. We had difficulty getting the tv going but the owners were helpful when we called them about that. The lighting in the sitting room is not very good and we couldn't work out how to get the fire to produce any heat; a new veg peeler is needed. Apart from that, difficult to criticize. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We absolutely loved this special cottage in Pett, which was spotlessly clean, toasty warm in winter, perfectly proportioned and very hard to leave. The hearth is a marvel, and the local pubs welcoming and hearty. We went on several different walks around the surrounding landscape, including a circular walk to the sea. The master en suite is very comfortable indeed, and the kitchen has all you could need. We will be back!
We had a 4 night break with friends (and the dog). We were all delighted with the standard of the cottage which is very well equipped and in an excellent location for visiting the local area.
A lovely house by the sea with garden and open fireplace. Very light and comfortable. Great for quiet, relaxing break away from the city.
Property worked very well for a weeks stay, our only concern was keeping elderly parents warm in the winter which was slightly challenging. I would recommend requesting the Rayburn be turned up before arrival and taking plenty of wood for the open fire.
We booked Little House as it was near our son's home, we live in Cornwall and our other children live in Essex and Hong Kong. We all wanted to be together for Christmas and so the location was ideal. It was spacious downstairs with two bedrooms and a bathroom all of a good size and a further ensuite bedroom upstairs (couldn't work the heating upstairs so it tended to be cold). The open plan kitchen and living room allowed a very sociable space. The games room is a great addition when you have a lot of people around and is equipped with a table tennis equipment and a few board games. Al...more
What a find. Small but beautifully formed and in a location almost to die for. A walkers / dog owners paradise; clean and tastefully renovated; well equipped kitchen; good shower over bath. It suited us and our puppy as we used second bedroom for our clothes. Go there now!!!
Lovely place, shame stairs were steep and bedroom window had 1 of its handle broken. Location meant easy access to town which was great as it rained the whole time. Parking was ok but a challenge on market day.
One of the best showers we've come across in a cottage. A great kitchen too. The TV in each room and Wifi available were also nice touches. The customer service was very friendly and helpful, when we had questions there was always someone available. The location next to Fishers Farm Park, plus nearby pubs and towns was perfect for our family.
Unfortunately for our party, it rained every day of the week - The Studio is definitely a place for holidaying in warmer weather. I can certainly imagine that with some heat and sunshine it would be lovely to sit outside on the wooden decks or down by the summerhouse. In the spring and summer the grounds would be lovely - but this was not the case for us. The wooden decking was slippery - and certainly we wouldn't have gone onto the upstairs balcony where the wood was rotten! Fortunately the Aga through out some welcome heat and was a joy to cook on - and I appreciated the various store-cu...more
Stunning house a real cosy family home to enjoy in the beautiful countryside with the most unbelievable enormous swimming pool.
Quite comfortable and clean. In my experience overpriced compared to other properties we stayed at. Good base.
Stayed here for 10 days in August, this apartment is in need of updating . It is advertised as wheelchair accessible which it is to enter . The bathroom consists of a bath with overhead shower. Most people in a wheelchair would find it difficult to get in and out of a bath , a walk in shower would be a big improvement. There were not enough towels provided for five people and the one`s that were there smelled musty as if they had been stored for a long time . Could not fault the agent who was quick to provide some more clean towels for us. All things considered would not stay in this apartment...more
Saxons was in a pleasant location and there was a nice patio area to sit outside on the whole the rooms were clean and comfortable. However I felt bedding and towels had been well used/washed and the towels particularly were 'thin' and needed renewing.
House was spotless and warm when we arrived. It was safe for our 15 month old baby. It is clean and comfortable with fabulous views and an excellent garden. Will hopefully stay again in summer to make more of it - thank you.
The hosts were lovely and very helpful. We loved the cottage and it was plenty big enough (despite other reviews) for two of us and we have definitely stayed in more than a few smaller places! The fact that the (large and bright) bedroom was separate and the sitting room area was upstairs made it more like a cottage than a studio. The outside area to sit with the friendly chickens and have breakfast/drink tea or wine and breathe in the countryside peace was wonderful! It was so quiet too with owls gently hooting at night and we slept like babies. Perfect location for plenty of walking too.
We were delighted with our stay at the apartment. The location was perfect, and everything was spotlessly clean and looked brand new. The beds were very comfortable & the kitchen very well appointed. I loved my stay here - all the little touches made it feel like a home and not a holiday let, and my better half loved the smart TV. Would certainly try to book again next time we visit the area, which will hopefully be soon as we now have family relocated there. Thank you.
Like the cottage very old and creepy, Think the kitchen and bathroom needs refurbishing. Also couple of really comfy chairs.
Lovely quirky looking interior however we didn't sleep very well through the whole stay. First night we tried the steps up to mezimen bedroom but the noise from the fridge freezer which is so very close starting up all night was too much so we tried making up the sofa bed for the rest of the stay but that wasn't very comfy on one side so apart from lack of sleep we did enjoy the surroundings and the quiet privacy that The Well House has to offer.
We spent 6 days at the end of October at Beach Reach. 4 adults and 2 children. The location is fantastic and even in October, access to the beach from the back door is fantastic. Waking up in the 1st floor bedroom to the amazing view is a real treat. There is loads to do in the area and we can highly recommend the English Heritage sites of Battle Abbey and Dover Castle as well as the fantastic bike tracks around Bedgebury Pinetum. The house had everything we needed and was a comfortable and cozy retreat each evening. Having a real fire was a treat. The only observation I would make is that ...more
Good except we found the bed very hard: key for front door mortice lock erratic: stairs not easy to negotiate.
Cosy,comfortable little cottage in an excellent location for a dog friendly break.Very quiet and fantastic walks nearby
Hallo Nutzer Dies war wirklich eine schöne Woche in Hastings, das Haus ist sehr zu empfehlen und für 4 Personen echt gut. Trotz (oder gerade wegen des englischen) Kontakts lief alles Reibungslos. vielen Dank
Modern house well equipped. Shame about the limited parking. In general house style suits only 2 adults and kids due to only one shower and small kitchen/dining area. Office/lounge extension was a plus.
