Sally invited us in and before I could put down my case my visa card was taken from me and kerrrching, £95 was processed from us and that is without even getting to see our room! So much for trust then.This was followed by the statement "if you find anything wrong tell me so this can be put right." Now... More

Stayed the night for our 38th wedding anniversary, this country house oozes charm & is immaculately presented. The breakfast is to die for, I had the scrambled eggs & smoked salmon, hubby had the full English. Wish we had had longer to enjoy, definitely recommend. 10/10.

Thank you for your candid review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at Cleavers Lyng. I agree that the Sunny Room although has a kingsize bed and double aspect views is on the smaller size to our other bedrooms, which is the reason it is our cheapest room in our range. Having said that it does... More

I had chosen the four poster room as it was our 30th wedding anniversary during our stay and I liked the character of the place. Situated almost at the end of Church Lane, you only have passing traffic going to the church, so for a front of house facing room, it was quiet. Sally explains how things work in the... More

Told it was hard to find, but the satnav took me to the front door with the post code. The first sight was breathtaking, and the interior was just as good. Very warm welcome from Sally, and shown to the four-poster room (free upgrade), which was awesome. Breakfast was superb, virtually anything you wanted, all freshly cooked, and as much... More

In a location that just cannot be beaten, we had an excellent and comfortable room with every facility. Our hosts were friendly and prepared to be flexible with breakfast times. Great value for money and I would certainly recommend it as an alternative to another night in another chain hotel!

Our Daughter arranged this as it was within 10 min to the Castle where she was attending university. Upon arrival I thought wow we are off the beaten path. However the place turned out great. Part of the structure was very historical but we'll maintained. Our walks to and from the castle were quite enjoyable. Great countryside views. Room was... More

Cleavers Lyng is one of the finest guest houses my wife and I have stayed in. We had 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the Tudor architecture (although the low ceiling beams had to be watched as I am 6'4"), the fine breakfasts and the absolute peace of the Sussex countryside. Thanks, Sally. We ate in two local pubs and one... More
