We spent two nights in Room 1 at Hill Cottage in July 2014 while attending a workshop in Crowborough and so pleased we found this lovely B&B. The hosts are lovely - the rooms are spotless and the breakfast was first class. Having the Wheatsheaf 20 yards away from the front door was an added bonus!

I had such a pleasant stay here in May 2014 that I would recommend a stay here for anyone, be they staying for one night or more. The owners are fine, sociable people and the rooms are extremely clean and tidy. The breakfast is second to none (and I've had many, in many places over the years) so I speak... More

Spent two nights June 21st and 22nd in this lovely B&B in Crowborough with a great pub right next door! ( The Wheatsheaf). The weather was glorious and great for exploring Ashdown Forest and checking all the Winnie the Pooh places; you need a car to start the walk around the places. The bed, room and breakfast were excellent and... More

Thanks very much for your review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay and what the nearby area has to offer. Your comments about the steps aroused our curiosity so we asked one of the local builders, it seems modern steps should ideally be 9" deep and 7" high, ours are 8" deep and 7" high which gives the illusion of...

Recommended as the perfect place to stay on our London to Paris cycle ride, we weren't disappointed. Ted greeted us after a weary day on the bike, slightly soaked and not in great spirits after mechanical failure after failure. Secure storage behind the house for the bikes. Room was cosy and welcoming and the breakfast quite superb. Would recommend this... More

We stayed here on our London to Paris cycle on the Avenue Verte. Hill Cottage is a delightful, old cottage in the quiet part of Crowborough. We were given a warm welcome by Ted, stowed our bikes safely behind the house and were shown to our cosy and nicely decorated room. It was quite small but clean and comfortable with... More

27/04/14 We were attending a BBQ walking distance from 'Hill cottage' and didn't want to drive home, so we booked in. It did exactly what it said on the tin. Friendly welcome, really nice room with comfy bed and a super breakfast next morning. Couldn't fault the experience. Well done!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights. The owners, Ted and Maggie, were very welcoming and made our stay extremely pleasant. Beds were comfortable, in fact we overslept and this is a great location to explore the weald country, Ashdown Forest and places like Tunbridge Wells with its Pantiles (and unfortunately for our pocket tempting shopping)....

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend Wedding.This is a lovely BnB with bags of character due to the age of the cottage. Lovely touch leaving bottles of water in rooms. Comfortable beds, very clean and nice breakfast. One small point, front entrance door sticks which proved slightly difficult entering property when arriving back in the evening,though this could easily... More

Thank you for your very nice review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. You are right about the sticking front door - Unfortunately this is due to the recent very wet weather and the door (which is very old and characterful) has swollen a bit, so sticks. Hopefully this will remedy itself very soon!! More

Really nice B & B. The room was lovely and the en-suite bathroom had a great shower. It was a treat to have a wonderful breakfast cooked for us rather than having to serve yourself from the hotplates that you get at most hotels!
