We found our stay here a great family getaway in a beautiful part of the world, just far enough away from Brighton to be a perfect base camp for our days out. The owners were so friendly upon arrival and you could tell how proud they are of this place by the way they showed us around the grounds. Breakfasts... More

We had an amazing week in the South Downs and the cottage within the grounds of Tovey Lodge was (almost) the perfect location to base ourselves. We didn't have that much to do with Roy and Diane, the owners, during the week because we were out most days, and when we're on holiday, we don't really want to converse with... More

We had a wedding at Old Pangdean Barn and decided that rather than stay in Brighton (which we regularly do) we'd go for something a bit more rural and also get a more luxurious trip for not much more money. The setting is beautiful and the room (Poplar) was lovely. There's a lot of attention to detail - from the... More

I didn't stay here - I lodged an enquiry online and was phoned back by a gentleman who was very rude when I explained that I had found somewhere else to stay. "So you're not interested in our five star luxury experience then?" He got more and more petulant with me as I thanked him for phoning but explained I... More

Nestled in the South Downs, only a short drive from Lewes and the south coast, this is a delightful bed and breakfast set in 3 acres. At about £170 per night for the upstairs room, this can by no means be considered a 'bargain' place to stay, but the amenities (including an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna) are exceptional.... More

we planned to stay for the night of a wedding and were expecting to arrive by 8pm. We called 24 hours in advance to say that we were expecting to arrive around 9pm because of work commitments and the distance we needed to travel (around 150 miles). This prompted an astonishing reaction from the owner who told us that our... More

We had a 4 night-stay at Tovey Lodge just before Easter in April and thouroughly enjoyed everything, the amazing location at the foot of the South Downs, beautiful grounds, the comforts of the accommodation, the hospitality and lovely sharing nature of the owners Roy and Diane and great breakfast.

I have not stayed at Tovey Lodge, nor do I now wish to do so. I did make a tentative booking for a date over three months distant. It was for two couples, one of whom was disabled. Through unforeseen medical circumstances I had to cancel the booking within about 12 hours. I was then informed by the owner that... More

Myself and my friend have just returned from a 5 night stay in Tovey Lodge. We were on a training course in Haywards Heath, so unfortunately didn't have chance to see the beautiful hills, walks and countryside! Having read some of the awful reviews on here we were more than a little nervous…. but both Roy and Diane went above... More

A very good experience from speaking to the owners to book to the moment we left. Very nice spacious room with a comfortable bed. Shower room not large but perfectly adequate and very well fitted. The gardens and general scenery are lovely. Very glad to have found Tovey Lodge as we travel to Brighton regularly and this is very convenient... More
