I needed an overnight stay to go to a nearby party, and definitely picked the right place! What a wonderful B&B. We were given the warmest welcome, and loved every aspect of "Thimbles" from start to finish. Large and comfortable room, with an equally large and comfortable en-suite. DELICIOUS breakfast, jam-packed full of homemade produce, and the prettiest of settings... More

Sorry it's taken so long to post this. But the few months that have passed have not dimmed our memory of our wonderful stay at Thimbles Bed and Breakfast. We've stayed at many, many B & B's in the US, the UK and in Europe, and Thimbles is everything a really fine B & B should be. The bedroom was... More

I stayed at Thimbles for a night with my daughter on a London to Paris bike ride. Thimbles really represents all the best of the British B&B. Friendly, comfortable, clean, welcoming and with great breakfast. Vicky was incredibly accommodating and helpful and a lovely host. I can recommend Thimbles to anyone looking for a great B&B

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
