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.

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

It is a very nice family, who are very friendly, helpful and thoughtful. They have a beautiful big garden with lots of beautiful flowers and a pond, even with a little island. They... More

We stayed for two nights at Thimbles. It was such an idyllic place, with wonderful views of the vast gardens. Nothing was too much trouble for Vikki. From speaking to her on the phone and meeting her she made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the pretty double, ensuite, which was a superb room. Great nights sleep, and very... More

A great house in a lovely setting with very friendly and helpful hosts and a nice dog! Our room was spotless and fresh with a comfortable bed and smashing bathroom. The breakfasts were terrific with home-made sausages a highlight, although the coffee wasn't half bad either. All in all a very fine and rather unusual b and b. Thank you... More
