Stayed here with my sister for a short break. Vicki was very welcoming and we enjoyed our breakfast chats over a coffee! Room was very comfortable and bathroom we'll equipped. Garden and lake were absolutely glorious all helped by the beautiful sunshine. Great place to explore local NT houses as well.

We had a lovely relaxed stay at Thimble. Vicky was very welcoming and made us feel at home straightaway. Our room was delightful with views to the garden. Hard to add to the other fantastic reviews, they are absolutely right!

This is an exceptional find. 'Thimbles' exudes warmth, charm and delight at every corner. Vicki is a bright and engaging host at all times and her family absolutely delightful too. The room was clean and charming - and the freshly cooked breakfast was delicious and generous in size. I am a hardened city dweller ( My parent's obsession with their... More

Wonderful B&B with two rooms for B&B guests. I stayed in the single room and shared the bathroom with the family. Vicky is not only the heart of Thimbles, mother, entertainer and an incredible cook, she is also a wonderful host. She and her husband welcomed me with a cup of tea and showed me around their cozy home and... More

Just spent a lovely night away from London at Thimbles near Heathfield. We were warmly welcomed by the family who were incredible accommodating. Vicki and Simon have a knack for putting people at ease which their delightful children have inherited. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable and the whole family made us feel very welcome. They recommended we eat... More

Our first trip to Sussex and we were fortunate enough to get a last minute booking at Thimbles. The house and gardens are very interesting and clearly a labour of love. We had a beautiful room, spotlessly clean, with very comfortable bed, large bathroom and lovely views of the garden and lake. Breakfast was of fresh, home-made food and Vicki... More

This is a truly wonderful place to stay. I feel really privileged to have found it and spent the night there. Vicki, Simon and family are the most delightful people and couldn't be more welcoming. The house and gardens are lovely and the mostly home produced food absolutely delicious. My single room was large, comfortable and airy. Like those who... More
