    This was a great cottage and location for us and our one year old spaniel. Lovely countryside and walks straight from the house.

    A fantastic cottage which was a wonderful base for friends catching up. Susan has made the cottage very cosy and welcoming. We liked the sitting room, dining room and kitchen very much, and really enjoyed sitting out in the front garden. Well equipped and very clean, we would really recommend staying here!

    Lovely warm and cosy cottage, comfortable with enough headroom for my 6ft 3in frame! Only downside is the lack of a local shop, the owner is very nice and friendly, will definitely stay again.

    We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely, cosy cottage in an idyllic village. Very warm and comfortable with everything provided. A great location for exploring the area, such as Lewes, Brighton, Cuckmere and South Downs.

    This is a beautifully presented cottage, with charm, character, good taste, and great comfort. We enjoyed a week exploring the countryside nearby, and trips to Brighton and Lewes. We also had a BBQ enjoying the glorious gardens, both at the front and rear. It was very hot weather, but due to the thick stone walls, we kept cool - and you would equally keep warm in the winter. The beds were comfortable, so no problem getting good night's sleep. There was also a very generous and delicious 'welcome basket' for us when we arrived. We'll certainly be returning to this delightful home.

    Very much enjoyed our stay here. We particularly enjoyed eating outside in the pretty gardens as the weather was so good. The cottage was very well-equipped and provided everything we needed.



    out of 10

    A lovely welcoming cottage which proved to be a great base for walking the South Downs Way and doing a “Bloomsbury Group” trail. There was a great welcome pack of food which was invaluable on arrival, heating was generous and effective, all our needs were well met. A perfect place to be introduced to Sussex.

    Wonderful place to spend a holiday! Beautiful garden, peaceful spot, lovely cottage.



    out of 10

    We loved the cottage. It is very comfortable and has a pretty garden. It is in a beautiful location just near to the Monk's House and with access to lots of lovely walks. It is also great that it's not too far from Southease Station. It had everything we needed, with a great supply of books and games. We had a lovely Easter weekend, with a great walk across the downs to Firle and a trip to Brighton. We would definitely recommend and hope that we can rent the house again.

    What a beautiful cottage. Lots of original features. I just loved it.



    out of 10

    Excellent character cottage complete with beams. Clean, well equipped and interesting. Parking good. Didn't use any local amenities. Brighton & Lewes very accessible. Village location, but seemed a very quiet and countryside setting.



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage. Plenty of room for 5 adults. Stairs are quite steep to first floor but there are handrails on both sides. Situated down a beautiful lane. Would definitely recommend it.



    out of 10

    Excellent all round!
