“Beautiful cottage, lovely surroundings”
Reviewed April 16, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

2nd stay at this cottage for Brighton marathon weekend (stayed a week in 2016). Lovely, homely, clean cottage. Great access to Hassocks train station for easy travel into Brighton and great location to explore the beautiful surrounding South Downs countryside. Great food can be found in the village at the The White Horse just up the road which is also very friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at this cottage and the owner is very helpful and friendly. Will probably have another stay here in the future!

“Superb cosy Cottage in South Downs”
Reviewed December 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The cottage had everything we needed for a weeks stay. Very cosy and lots of character. The kitchen was well equipped and was nice to have a bath with good pressure on shower. - my partner very pleased about this! Ditchling we found out is not great for mobile phones,(although we did get reception in a corner of one of the bedrooms) however there is internet at the Cottage. The bedrooms were both light and airy and the beds huge and very comfortable. The house is tastefully decorated and very clean. The patio outside has charm and is secluded. Ditchling is a beautiful village, we were spoilt for things to do, being close to both Brighton and Lewes (a must to visit). Michelle was great and nothing too much trouble.

“Miss”
Reviewed November 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Lovely cottage in the heart of Ditchling village, compact but cosy with good facilities. Within seconds of local tea rooms and great pubs. Road can be quite noisy but you do get used to it. No allocated parking but never a problem parking either on side roads or at free local car park. Owner Michelle is lovely and will help with anything you need. If looking for a place to stay in a beautiful Sussex village I would definitely recommend 10 High Street.

“A stay in Ditchling...”

The cottage is in a lovely village and quite well presented.

The negative points are:
1. As mentioned by other reviewers the cottage is on a very busy road road with many large lorries squeezing past. Parking is also tricky.
2. Cooking and dining facilities are less than ideal:
1. The kitchen is poorly equipped: there was no potato peeler, there was only one rather blunt kitchen knife, no egg cups, teflon was peeling off the wok, few saucepans had lids
2. only two dining chairs, however there were a further two plastic chairs in the cupboard under the stairs which had been exposed to decorating
3. The bathroom is inconveniently located at the far end of the kitchen which is a rather long walk if one needs the bathroom in the night.

Management Response

I am saddened that this guest has only given 2 stars. I wish that she had told me that there was a problem as I would happily have bought along more kitchen utensils - unfortunately I was not aware they were missing. With regard to the dinning chairs they are kept in the cupboard to allow more space in the lounge as are not always needed. I think only one other person has mentioned the traffic - however like they said it was no problem at all at night. The cottage is in the High Street of a beautiful village - it has the benefit of being very central, but with that does bring day time traffic. I would urge people when reading this review to take a view and look at all the other lovely reviews. I have worked very hard to ensure that everyone has a lovely time, and the cottage is very clean and beautifully decorated. It is sad that this guest has chosen to look at anything negative and not positive ...

“Perfect little retreat”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lovely cosy and well appointed cottage at the foot of the South Downs with lots of beautiful walks and good local food close by. Convenient for Brighton and London with a train station 5 minutes away at Hassocks.
Michelle (the owner) was always very helpful and readily available to answer any questions. A lovely little retreat that we would highly recommend.
