We had a wonderful time at this beautiful country house, and Ruth was an excellent host. The house is really well equipped and is only a short drive away from shops and near by towns. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and outside the garden area is just beautiful and a perfect setting for midsummer barbecue feasts.
My family and I travelled from our home in Australia to spend time with family and friends in the UK. The cottage in Henfield was the perfect setting for family gatherings over Christmas and New Year. Nothing was too much trouble for Ruth; we arrived to the house being fully decorated for Christmas - stunning tree and decorations. Ruth immediately offered help with laundry upon arrival, provided us with gifts of local wine and was extremely friendly and engaging.
The house is fabulously equipped and superbly comfortable. We will most certainly look to stay here again when next visiting the UK. Thank you Ruth for being so welcoming to myself and our huge family and friends!
This a fabulous country cottage in a beautiful scenic area, very good access to Brighton, London and gatwick airport. Loads of character and indoor out door space.
For Americans it has a lot of bathrooms! Almost one per bedroom. Although built in the 1920s it has a lovely old worldly feel but with great modern facilities. Lots of lawn and pretty fish pond and views over the downs. The owner is pleasant and very helpful.
This house has it all. Great location, so well equipped and perfect for a family or group gathering. The 3 ensuites meant each couple had their space and 2 of us had a wing each with our daughters, The large, lovely kitchen/dining room and living room was big enough to accommodate us all comfortably. The owners we on hand to welcome and wave us goodbye and nothing was too much trouble. They even provided toys for the kids which was a hit as well as things in the garden.
We'd love to make it our annual visit and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a large house gathering. The nearby farm (Washbrooks) was good too and would be even better in the summer with all the outside climbing equipment and sandpits etc. Thank you Ruth we will return!
We just had a wonderful weekend at the house celebrating my 40th birthday. The house is absolutely charming and spacious but still cosy with a cottage-feel. It is located just 20 minutes from Hove seafront and a stones' throw from the South Downs. There is a large, safe garden with plenty of games equipment to entertain young and old. I would love to go back again and would definitely recommend it to others.
