“One of the very best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

This was our third visit and we very much hope that it won't be our last. The old farmhouse and its tranquil setting are just perfect. The welcome from Susie and Mike is warm, friendly and entirely genuine. They go out of their way to be helpful. The rooms are comfortable (spectacular in the case of the four-poster room) and impeccably presented. Breakfasts are fantastic. Once settled in, guests are left alone to explore and enjoy the extensive grounds but have only to ask if there is anything they need.

I can't see b&b getting much better than this.

Spent a weekend at Clayton Wickham with friends for a wedding, we had most of the place booked out for both nights. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, they were great conversation and company too. Their home is beautiful, their gardens even more so. They're short on rules and long on enjoyment and the breakfasts are far better than the vast majority of good hotels. It may cost a little bit more per night but for an individual, beautiful and enjoyable stay ditch the generic Travelodge nonsense and go for this. You won't regret it.

Quite simply the best B&B I have ever stayed at. The owners were most welcoming and we instantly felt comfortable and at ease in their lovely home. The rooms were extremely comfortable and the breakfasts amazing. I would recommend going in the spring/summer as the garden is fantastic and a great place to relax. And there's the tennis court if want some activity. I thoroughly recommend this venue and I will be going back in the future.

My husband and I have finally dicovered the place of our dreams for quiet holidays near Brighton. The house is so charming! It is ideally set in the typically British countryside (we are French). How delightful it is to be woken up by birds singing! The room we stayed in was ever so romantically decorated and the bed was very comfortable (for once, I had no backache when I woke up!). Breakfast is served in a charming room and we enjoyed everything from the cooked breakfast to a fresh fruit salad, toasts and locally produced jams.
The owners, Susie and Mike, are very welcoming and ready to do anything to help you. They gave us advice about the most suitable restaurants or pubs according to what we felt like eating each day. As we love hiking, we followed Susie's advice so we discovered a walk in the Downs that we would never have found on our own.
It took us only 10 or 15 minutes to drive to the centre of Brighton. The location is also very practical for garden lovers who would like to visit all the famous gardens around.
I would definitely recommand this B and B both for the setting AND the warm welcome.

I must be one of the travelers who did not find the charm of this admittedly beautiful farmhouse and surrounding area to my tastes, sadly the over decoration of the actual B&B made myself and my partner feel as though we could not be as relaxed as we would of liked, and although the owner/operators tried to come across as friendly we felt very much ill at ease and that the friendliness was almost forced. The rooms were adequate, while decorated way beyond either of our tastes, and the breakfast again while adequate was again just too much, and while the owners seem to 'mask' their feelings and appear friendly it was apparent on more than one occasion the wife felt we should of appreciated more the service and quality that was provided. I wouldn't go back again, or recommend it, I prefer somewhere perhaps more homey where myself and my partner can relax and enjoy ourselves without feeling uncomfortable.

We have stayed a couple of times before with Suzie and Mike in their lovely farmhouse. The gardens were, as always, immaculate and the hosts very welcoming. A lot of effort has gone into making this idyllic rural farmhouse as comfortable as it can be - tea on demand, biscuits in the room, shampoo and conditioner you can actually get out of the bottle, clean and comfortable. We had the roomy four poster bedroom and had the luxury of an extra hour there as the clocks went back! If you are a cat lover, their burmese chinchilla Jambo is as friendly and welcoming as his owners. Nothing was too much trouble - but if you are over 6' remember to duck through the doors as this farmhouse wasn't built for modern head heights.

I can only repeat what has been said before and just add that nothing was too much trouble including showing me how to use the Aga in their kitchen so I could make a very early cup of tea (the tea /coffee things were in the pretty outside dining/sitting room) and bringing us plates ,glasses, candles so that we could enjoy our picnic supper in their beautiful garden.
