Sadly we only had one night's stay in this superb B&B. We were given a very warm welcome accompanied by a lovely cup of tea. Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed a great night's sleep in very quiet surroundings. Breakfast was really delicious -everything home produced. The garden is a delight to wander round. Vikki and Simon are... More

Vicki and her family were brilliant hosts, made us feel welcome and at home. We particularly enjoyed the musical aspects -wonderful and still vividly remembered concert with both kids participating- as well as the pretty garden, the animals -thanks, Lotti!- the swing and the culinary discoveries. Just a pitty that the temperatures were a bit cool, but still had a... More

"Thimbles" is a beautiful and charming B & B set within a lovely garden in a quiet country lane with safe off-road parking for cars and bicycles. It is an ideal geographical location to visit many famous heritage homes and gardens; explore Ashdown Forest and the South Downs or enjoy an opera at Glyndebourne during the festival season. The hosts,... More

Thimbles is located a short walk away from the centre of Heathfield, ideally placed for the restaurants there - (but oddly, no pub on the High St!). Rooms ******** We had the double room (the blue/white one you see in the photos here) and it was perfect. Large room, leading onto a very large ensuite, with a very large bath... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely night's stay at Thimbles. The owners are extremely warm and friendly. The house is set on a very quiet road with a lovely garden that produced the most delicious homemade jams. Very quaint and picturesque place, would highly recommend!

We were on an organised tour of 3 local gardens including Sissinghurst and Great Dixter, both close to Heathfield. We were recommended to stay at Thimbles. It turned out to be a great choice. Vikki and her husband Simon were charming hosts, and the room and breakfasts were excellent. The garden, huge and beautiful, with its own lake, was peaceful... More

A lovely warm welcome. Comfortable, bright and spacious ensuit double room in a charming family home. The beautiful gardens that surround the house make wonderful viewing and are worth taking time to stroll around. The host family are all very friendly and quite charming. We will definitely stay there again.

We were given a very warm welcome by Vicki and her children and given a cup of tea upon arrival. Our room was very spacious and pleasantly decorated. The en-suite was also very spacious. Our bug was that we stayed for two nights and our room had not been touched after our first night. We returned after a day out... More
