Kester house is a lovely place to stay - a beautiful old house and it's owners, Derek & Monique could not be more welcoming. We stayed in the Armada room, which is a very cosy room with a four poster bed. It was the little touches that make Kester House so special, like the scented candles and good quality coffee... More

The service here is very personal, especially the welcome you receive, and the breakfast was superb. The room was totally unique including a lovely four poster bed and original features including tiny doors! The village is delightful and the lively and welcoming pub is within walking distance. Just what you want out of an idyllic Sussex village. The location is... More

We had 2 rooms for a Saturday night the Armada and Brede rooms. Both extremely comfortable and immaculately clean, with extra touches of fresh flowers and scented candles. Derek and Monique were very welcoming, we sat in the pretty walled garden with a glass of wine and nibbles, a lovely start to a quality weekend. We all slept soundly in... More

We stayed here for our first wedding anniversary and loved it! Our hosts were very welcoming and the home made cakes are amazing. The quality of the breakfast was fantastic and definitely not a nasty greasy fry up! We were made to feel really special and hope to go back and visit again in the new year. Thank you so... More

Stayed for a Saturday night a couple of weeks ago whilst the children were away on camp. The b&b is a beautiful old building in a picturesque village a couple of minutes from the A21. We stayed in the Armada room; all doors to bedrooms were about 4ft tall! There was a 4 poster bed and en-suite and it was... More

Everything about this charming place was outstanding. Derek and Monique are lovely, friendly and informative about the area. The bedrooms are perfect, with lovely touches like fresh flowers, candles and face-cleansing bars. There is also a lovely little garden and two downstairs rooms in addition to the dining room, where you can have cream teas, drinks and play games. And... More

Firstly, apologies to Derek and Monique for taking SO long to write this review!

This was our second stay at Kester House, albeit in a different room. As before, Derek and Monique were charming hosts, with nothing too much trouble , delicious breakfast and a host of lovely little extra touches, such as welcoming afternoon tea when returning from a day out. They make you feel entirely at home and valued as a guest.
