Arrived earlier than planned, but nothing was a problem. Excellent location for exploring Sussex, and somehow arranged for Monday's storms to bypass us. Great conversation, better cakes and outstanding breakfasts. And then, beyond the call of duty, a leaving present for a personal celebration. A lovely wild meadow at the bottom of the garden with more blackberries than you can... More

I was on a business trip and stayed for just the one night. I have stayed in many B&B’s throughout the country and have to say that this was probably the best of all. I was greeted with a warm welcome by Bob & Pauline and shown to what can only be described as a “showroom” bedroom which was immaculate.... More

We can highly recommend this delightful B&B and its charming owners Pauline and Bob. The bedroom was immaculate with a lovely view over their garden. The little extras make all the difference - such as homemade cake with a cup of tea and an adaptor for foreign visitors! We also liked the delicious breakfast - with fresh fruit salad and... More

A friendly welcome, yummy cake included, a beautifully presented room, comfy bed and generous breakfast - just perfect. With a seperate entrance we could come and go as we pleased and had use if the glorious garden too. We had our own holiday accommodation for ten years so know how much work goes into maintaining such a high standard of... More

Attention to detail superb with nothing overlooked. The other reviews say it all. Would love to have stayed longer than the weekend. Pauline and Bob were so very thoughtful and caring. The homemade cake on arrival was a lovely touch.

This was truly a little piece of heaven for a weekend stay. The setting is idyllic and the warm welcome received on arrival made one feel so at home and part of the family. The room met very high standards of cleanliness and comfort. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable and I couldn't get over the silky softness of the sheets!... More

We were warmly welcomed by a wonderful couple into their lovely guest house for 3 nights. The place was spotlessly clean with all the mod cons you could need for a trip including an iPod dock, free WiFi, parking and of course one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in, in a long while. On arrival we were delighted... More

We stayed last night, our third stay in this lovely B&B, and once again had a splendid visit. Pauline and Bob made us feel so very welcome, and our room was delightful, spotless and stylish. It was amazingly quiet and relaxed, and once again we had fantastic food (tea with cherry & almond scones on arrival, and an English breakfast... More

Cup of tea and cake and a warm welcome. The Room was exactly as seen in the photos ... Superb ,with a beautiful peaceful outlook towards the... More
