Warm & friendly reception from Derek & Monique, Excellent accommodation & quality breakfast - especially the muffins! These guys made you feel at home for sure! We fancied something different to celebrate our 25th and this did not disappoint. We will be back but not leave it another 25 years!

We recently visited Kester House for an afternoon tea experience (a voucher given to us as a present) and we thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful of the feast that was laid before us! Nothing was any trouble - constant top ups offered on tea, butter and cream. The food was absolutely delicious with such different and interesting flavours - subtle twists... More

Quirky, fun building and rooms; sumptuous and varied breakfasts (don't miss the "mini-muffins"); and hosts that could not possibly be more helpful and accommodating. If you travel through East Sussex and stay anywhere else, you will have missed something special.

Owners are very friendly, informative, helpful and make you feel very at home. I was in the most beautiful room, the Armada room. It was like I had stepped back in history, 4 poster, great wifi and lovely personal touches. I felt like I was on holiday not away on business. Would recommend in a heartbeat and so reasonably priced.... More

Very friendly, but unobtrusive hosts. Great to have a cafetierre and 'proper' coffee in our room. A very comfortable bed and although the shower was a step away down the hall we were provided with comfy robes. Everything was quality and we really appreciated the personalised touches. The breakfast was excellent - sweet eggy brioche with an orange sauce and... More

We stayed for one night in the tithe barn room. Our welcome was warm with a pot of tea and cake in the lounge. The building is fascinating and decor comfortable and homely. Our bed was comfy and the bathroom well equipped. Breakfast was taken with other guests and was delicious. All in all we felt we had been welcomed... More

My partner and I booked a nights stay in the Tithe Barn room just as a little get away for the weekend - the reviews were excellent but our stay far exceeded my expectations!

Derek & Monique are such a wonderful couple who truly show pride in every aspect of your stay. Beautiful homemade brownies greeted us on arrival (I highly recommend not declining the welcoming coffee!) the 'Armada' room was once again amazing. Rooms have toiletries, hot drinks, fresh water, hair dryer & best of all - the feeling that you are the... More

It really was such an enjoyable stay from the first moment we arrived. Derek and Monique are lovely couple, they could have not been more inviting and welcoming. The room was such a delight and the small touched and details around the house are fascinating. We had a massage by lovely Karen, went horse riding locally and visited local pubs.... More
