The Whistle Stop offers excellent accommodation in the small Sussex town of Henfield. Its location is handy for local amenities. The apartment itself is faultless, offering space, comfort, all possible convenience plus many little personal touches that made the place feel a home-from-home. The kitchen was already stocked with many basics (and some lovely luxuries) when we arrived.
There is parking right outside the apartment, and Hassocks railway station is a short drive away and has a good amount of parking - an option infinitely preferable for a day trip to Brighton than driving in and queueing for one of Brighton's multistoreys! This part of Sussex also offers many pretty market towns and villages, and a landscape that is effortlessly picturesque.
Jo and Gavin made us feel very welcome. It was a delight to meet them and to stay in their rental. We will definitely be going back at some point.
The Whistle Stop is just off Henfield main street and is beautifully furnished and equipped. Parking by the front door with shops and gastropubs only moments away. Wonderful walks all around. Very helpful owners on hand for any local advice. South facing immaculate private sun terrace/garden. All in all, brilliant for a short or longer stay.
I find it difficult to believe that you could better this rental anywhere. The accommodation is stylishly modern and extremely well equipped. The extras provided are second to none and the owners delightful.. There's also a lovely garden to sit in. We wouldn't hesitate to return. Henfield itself is a pretty village providing everything you need in the way of shops and eating.
Even in midwinter we enjoyed the south-facing, garden view from the sitting room-it must be lovely to sit on the patio in summer. Comfortable sofas and bed, luxurious bathroom, efficient kitchen and a sense of space and light inside which doesn't seem possible when you look at the neat but confined entrance! Good pubs and shops just a few steps away, and interesting walks both in the town and the surrounding, beautiful countryside. We loved our stay, wish we could have stayed longer, and hope to stay again!
A modern self-contained unit. A 'home away from home' situated in the centre of a small Sussex village. Central and yet quiet and completely private, with it's own secluded garden area. This suite was perfect for me, travelling alone and needing a place of respite, yet would more than adequately suit a couple or a small family - My hosts were attentive to every detail while at the same time maintaining a sense of respectful privacy. Henfield is really a large village with everything one could need within walking distance. Very happy to recommend the Whistle Stop.
We stayed for 2 nights in August and the accommodation could not have been better. Great communication by Jo as we enquired as to whether we could book as 3 adults (this wasn't a problem, comfy sofa bed!) The Whistle Stop is beautifully decorated and everything was thought of, the little extra touches were lovely. We used the village as a base as we travelled around (Beachy Head, Brighton then on to Weymouth and Devon etc!) but would have liked to stay longer. Enfield itself is lovely and we would visit again in the future :)
