Stayed at Shoyswell for one night. Lovely location and fantastically decorated house. The room was a little small, however it was modern, clean and the bathroom was excellent. I would highly recommend!

This is a fantastic property in the most beautiful surroundings with its own lake and a resident duck population! Excellent and most comfortable stylish room and a charming attentive host. Excellent breakfast two and I understand that evening meals are available if booked in advance. We would very happily stay there again.

I had a wedding recently in Wadhurst and managed to book Shoyswell Cottage at the last minute. The guests are amazing and very welcoming, the room and en suite were fantastic and comfortable. The gardens and lake are so relaxing and a very welcome break from London, I will 100% be visiting again and recommending to my friends. Overall great... More

What a wonderful place to stay, we were made very welcome and it is so homely, so much so that I had the urge to clear away the breakfast dishes. The bedroom was fabulous and the grounds immaculate.

Stayed at Shoyswell Cottage earlier this month (June) , as visiting the area for a family celebration. It was delightful from start to finish. We were welcomed warmly by the owners and felt relaxed and comfortable staying there. Our room was beautifully furnished and elegantly provided everything necessary for a relaxing stay, (apart from a full length mirror which would... More

Thank you for your kind words about Shoyswell Cottage, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. A couple of the rooms do have full-length mirrors, but due to the quirky nature of the house, we can't get them into every room, sadly. I will put my thinking cap on and see if there is a solution, and many hanks... More

This charming bed and breakfast is perfect in every way. Where do I start? The accommodation is beautiful, lovely bedrooms set in a beautiful house, set in beautiful grounds. For once the pictures on the website do really show a property as it is and it is really as lovely as it looks on the website. The owners of the... More

I have stayed in many B&Bs and I can quite honestly say this is the best! From the moment of arrival to saying farewell everything was faultless.

This was our second stay at Shoyswell Cottage. It's more than a cottage and B&B. Made to feel welcome by our hosts, Jolyon and Lawrence. Great breakfasts cooked by Jolyon. We belong to the National Trust and there are quite a few to visit near to Etchingham. We would not hesitate to recommend Shoyswell for a relaxing break. Eric and... More

Lovely to see you again, and thank you for choosing to stay at Shoyswell for the second time. As I mentioned during your stay, we ARE smack in the middle of some of the great houses and gardens of England, more by co-incidence than by any prior planning on our part, but it certainly does make for great convenience if...
