What a calm oasis after a stressful few days. We had to make a trip to London from our home in Dorset. The weather was hot and sunny and we really didn't want to go away from home. We decided to turn the trip into a jolly and booked up at Thimbles for a treat. We are so glad we... More

We stayed in the twin room which is beautifully furnished with unbelievably comfortable beds. Vicki was a fantastic hostess and made us feel so welcome. Her... More

We stayed at Thimbles again this year as it is so nice, and Vikki makes us warmly welcome. Great room and surroundings. There are some lovely places to visit in the area and good pub restaurants nearby. We'll doubtless be back next year, say no more!

On a short two day trip in the south of England, I tried to show my 10 year old son some typical English country life. Nothing planned, no time-table to respect, no hotel booked... it is by chance, no, by pure luck that we ended up in Thimbles. This surpassed our expectations ; excellent room (now this is what you...

An unexpected overnight stay in East Sussex turned into a mini holiday! A wonderful welcome in a beautiful home. I had a fabulous room with very comfortable bed and stunning bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and the peace and quiet very rejuvenating. A treasure of a place!

I needed an overnight stay to go to a nearby party, and definitely picked the right place! What a wonderful B&B. We were given the warmest welcome, and loved every aspect of "Thimbles" from start to finish. Large and comfortable room, with an equally large and comfortable en-suite. DELICIOUS breakfast, jam-packed full of homemade produce, and the prettiest of settings... More

Sorry it's taken so long to post this. But the few months that have passed have not dimmed our memory of our wonderful stay at Thimbles Bed and Breakfast. We've stayed at many, many B & B's in the US, the UK and in Europe, and Thimbles is everything a really fine B & B should be. The bedroom was... More
