“A wonderful find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This was just an overnight stop on the long journey back from Cornwall and of particular interest to my N.Z. family staying with me in England for only a short time. I couldn't have picked a better B&B. Comfortable, friendly and so many little extras - for example - tea and delicious cake when we arrived and fresh milk for early morning tea - all so much appreciated. I stayed in many B&B's on my S.W.Coast path walk a few years ago but this tops them all. Thank you Sandie and Brian.

We had stayed here previously and it is just as nice as before. Clean rooms, great breakfasts
with a variety of choice. Sandi cooks really tasty breakfasts. Very nice, considerate hosts.
Lovely small village. There's a pub next door with good meals. Great for tired travelers.
Brian spent an hour on the computer with me trying to sort out an airline reservation issue.
Always found a parking place right in front from the B&B. We hope to return someday soon.

My husband and I stayed for an overnighter. The b & b is on the main road. I was concerned re road noise so requested a room at the rear. This room was very good, no road noise, and it was lovely overlooking the garden. The only noise you could sometimes just hear was a plane flying out of Gatwick. Bear in mind we sleep with the windows open, you probably wouldn't hear anything if it was shut. The double glazing is very good.
Sandie and Brian decored the room beautifully. It was quite a big room, with nice big chairs where you could sit and relax. Not very often you get that, so was greatly appreciated. The bathroom looked new, and was also extremely clean. Very well presented.
Its lovely when you have such a nice welcome after a busy day in the car, and our hosts certainly did that. We enjoyed a cup of tea and a piece of Sandys cake - very yummy. Nice thought.
Our breakfast was also very nice, and plenty to choose from. Parking was right out the front. We enjoyed a dinner next door at the local pub. Not bad, but there are a few places to eat not far away in the town of Petworth. A town we didn't get to explore, will next time. Very cute.
Thank you.

Back in Stockholm and reflecting on our journey in south England during the Easter, we have chosen the Old Pond Cottage B&B to our trip's top accommodation. The quality of the room, the range of the breakfast, Sandie's kindly helpfulness. The fresh milk in the morning outside the door for the cuppa was an evidence of the hostess concern for the guests. The value given far exceeds the price for the stay. Besides, a nice pub with decent food is close to the B&B, very convenient.

My boyfriend and I spent one night at old pond cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, spacious and cosy. We were welcomed with home-made cake and a cup of tea and in the morning fresh milk was left outside our door for a morning cuppa! The English breakfast was delicious, the b&b is also next door to a lovely pub which has really tasty food at reasonable prices. Overall, Brian and Sandie were great hosts and we'd certainly return. Thanks!

The best B & B we have ever stayed in! Wonderful hosts, room and breakfast. The family room was perfect for my husband and myself and 10 year old son.
The location is fantastic, our only sadness was that we only stayed one night! Can not recommend highly enough! We will be back...

We couldn't fault anything about Old Pond Cottage, hosts Sandie and Brian are friendly, welcoming and helpful and the cottage is pristine. (More so than many so called 4* hotels we have used!) We arrived late and left early, and wished we could have spent longer there, breakfast was delicious, lovely homely touches everywhere.
We also used the Three Crowns pub next door for a late evening meal, which was excellent.
Thank you for a very pleasant stay, hospitality at it's very best!
Carol and Paul.
