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. It was... More

Thanks for your review, and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Shoyswell Cottage. Tiny & Lola always respond well to strokes, hugs and, if needed, a little bit of bacon rind! We look forward to welcoming you to Shoyswell again in the future. Regards, Jolyon More

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. As well as... More

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. But low and behold, Jolyon the host, had forgotten that we were arriving earlier than the stated check-in time and wasn't there! I called him and... More

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?! I certainly look forward to seeing you at Shoyswell Cottage... More

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

Shoyswell Cottage is a nice place with a great garden, nice hosts and comfortable tasteful rooms. The breakfast is delicious with homemade bread and marmelade, cheese, eggs etc. We enjoyed aour stay very much.

The Shoyswell Cottage is advertised as a B&B, it's better described as being welcomed into Jolylon and Lawrence's home as that's certainly what it was. From our welcome to our send off our visit could not have been more perfect. The garden, rooms and the hospitality were second to none. An hour from our pad in London we'll certainly be... More

We had a wonderful couple of nights here. Well placed for visiting the downs and the coast. It is much more luxury hotel than "bed and breakfast". The owner could not do more to make you welcome and comfortable. Breakfast is whatever you would like.... Do not hesitate to visit this hotel.

Booked two rooms in this pretty cottage for an overnight stay when visiting Sissinghurst Castle. It was a perfect Spring day and we made the most of the sunshine by relaxing on the terrace overlooking the sweeping gardens. It was a true delight. We were lucky enough to see the baby moorhens and ducks on the fabulous pond, surrounded by... More

We stayed only and sadly for 1 night. The house is magical and the welcome is warm and sincere. The interior helps you truly relax and the surroundigs add an extra touch to refresh and recharge after a busy week in London. The cherry on top was our absolute free range breakfast egg from the chicken walking up and down... More
