“GREAT HOLIDAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here in August two adults and one child aged two.
The cottage was very comfortable and the facilities were of a high standard and very clean upon arrival. The kitchen has everything that you would need and the owners leave all basics (washing up liquid etc) which is a nice touch as many cottages that I have visited have nothing like this.
Also upon arrival the owners left milk, bread and a cake which was really nice.
Bedrooms very comfortable and bathrooms / showers all new and of a high standard.
Outside you have your own patio with furniture and we used this on a couple of occasions to eat out as the weather was good, the only draw back is that when you eat outside the guests staying in the other cottage look straight out of their lounge at you so no real privacy.
Visited Brighton, Worhting and Lewes whilst on holiday and would recomend them all.
All in all had a great family holiday.
The cottage is in a rural location so a car is needed to get everywhere as there are no pavements on the road into Ponyings.

“Excellent cottage and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Absolutely beautiful cottage with everything you could wish for and in a great location. Decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard it makes you feel comfortable immediately. Welcomed with a lovely lemon drizzle cake along with a few bits like milk, bread, butter, home made jam,marmalade and honey. The surrounding area is lovely and peaceful with nice woodland walks and spots for just sitting and enjoying the countryside and house moat. We had rabbits visiting the garden, saw deer in the woods and had buzzards overhead most days. The location of the cottage was perfect for us as Brighton was 5 mins away as was the A27 which gave easy access to both east and west Sussex. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would love to revisit and would happily recommend to anyone. 5 stars..

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I booked this holiday cottage last minute. What a find! It is situated in a very idyllic setting, with the South Downs literally on your doorstep. The fixtures and fittings are exceptional, nothing has been overlooked. The 'extras' that welcomed us; home made scones, preserves, and local honey, along with tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread and butter, were fully appreciated. The owner also provides toiletries and dishwashing and laundry detergents.

“Fabulous cottage - perfect for young children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned home after 3 nights staying in 2 Moatside Cottages and had a fantastic stay. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was particularly well equipped and it's clear the owners have put thought into the finishings and details. The open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge space was larger than it appeared in the photographs and was plenty of space for a family. The beds were especially comfortable! We liked the addition of the shower/ sink area in the main bedroom. We didn't use the outside space due to the weather but there is seating and a fenced garden area. It is shared with the other cottage. The extra touches such as the cake, jam, bread, butter and milk were really appreciated as were the dishwasher and washing machine powder!

There's nothing negative to say about Moatside Cottages. It is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The one floor works really well for families with young children as we didn't need to worry about stair gates and we could tend to our baby really easily in the next room in the evening. Both bedrooms are next to each other, we don't always find this is the case with one floor properties.

The cottage is a really good location for Brighton and surrounding areas, we hope to return again in the near future! We will be definitely be recommending Newtimber Holiday Cottages to our friends.

“Luxurious Cottages in a peaceful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Myself and 7 friends stayed for a weekend in both Moatside cottages. The cottages are beautiful and both furnished to a high specification. The beds are comfotable, all showers are power showers and everything was spotlessly clean The kitchens are well equipped and all appliances and equipment are of a really high quality. There were homemade lemon drizzle and sponge cakes on arrival that were so good and didn't last long with our hungry group of friends!

We cooked one night in the cottage and the following day we ate out at a local pub, The Royal Oak. The food here was beautiful and really high quality. We walked which took about half an hour. The cottages are fairly remote but we managed to get out and about but if you were wanting to explore the surrounding area a car would be beneficial.
If you just wanted to stay in the cottages there are lots of books, smart tv's so you can get catch up, wifi and i pod docking stations.

The only minor criticism was that a few people in the group said the hot water in the showers was a little sporadic.

All in all a very comfortable stay, the cottages are beautiful and feel very luxurious!

“Well equipped and comfortable cottages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Seven friends and I rented both Moatside cottages for a three-night stay. Couldn't fault the cottages. They are newly refurbished and kitted out to the highest quality. Great kitchen facilities, comfortable beds and good TVs. Very warm and cosy. The owners had also left us a Victorian sponge and lemon drizzle cake (which didn't last long). Only fault was that the water for the shower could have been hotter - and there aren't too many great walks nearby the cottage.

“Peaceful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Moatside cottages have only opened this year and were originally horse stables. The renovation has been done to a very high standard. We had everything we required and the owner even baked us a cake! It is a beautiful peaceful location with lots of great walks on the doorstep. Henfield the closest village is a 10 minute drive away and has everything you will need. We will definitely stay again.
