We spent 2 nights in this fabulous house, located in beautiful countryside, with lots of opportunities for sight-seeing, shopping, walking or just plain relaxing. Our host, Jolyon, was warm but unobtrusive and we were made to feel very much at home. Our other hosts, Tiny and Lola, were an absolute joy! If you like country living with a touch of... More

The house and grounds are beautiful, and the hosts were very friendly and made us feel right at home in their house. Our room had an amazing view of the grounds and surrounding countryside, and the room itself was very comfortable and very nicely decorated. We ate dinner at the nearby Curlew restaurant, which was great (must book taxi in... More

Stayed with them earlier in the year for a brief escape from the city. The missus was in love with the decor and took numerous pictures. Truly they have a keen eye and good taste. Both Jolyon and Lawrence did everything they could to accommodate and made our stay with them a great one, albeit too brief! The breakfast, using... More

Thank you. Now I'm smiling as well thanks to your kind review. To be honest, Lawrence is the one with great interior design taste, but I'm more the Chef. I am pleased to see that my four-legged companions are taking their roles as the meet & greet committee with the utmost seriousness. We look forward to welcoming you back to... More

We have just returned home after staying at Shoyswell Cottage B&B where we were made very welcome by Jolyon and Lawrence. Having greeted us we were then offered a cup of tea in the lounge and told to make ourselves at home. Jolyon and Lawrence have made this into a beautiful house and is in a fabulous location.

We have just got back from a wonderful stay at Shoyswell. I can honestly say that the only negative thing was that we couldn't stay for longer. The accommodation, house and grounds are beautiful and styled impeccably. We felt incredibly well looked after thanks to the amazing hospitality and it really felt like a home from home.

We booked for 4 nights from July. Given a warm welcome by Jolyon (and Tiny and Lola). We were shown to our room and then provided with tea and coffee on the patio. This overlooks the expansive garden and duck pond. The downstairs is free for all the guests to use and has some interesting features. Superb breakfast, cooked by... More

Well what can I say? A lot actually! It's all good, so keep reading. My other half and I arrived on Friday with just enough time to get ready for a wedding in Ticehurst.

Hello again! Thank you for being so understanding about my fruit-fly memory, and the fact that I wasn't there when you arrived; and also for being so forgiving about my, ahem, demeanour when I did put in an appearance - I think it all went uphill from there, didn't it?!

We had the pleasure to stay at the Shoyswell B&B for four nights. After a busy week in London it was great to discover this gem in the english countryside. We got a warm welcome from both Jolylon and Lawrence, and as others say, it felt like visiting great friends! Fantastic house, bedroom, bathroom, garden++ Thank you for having us!!... More
