Clayton Wickham Farmhouse
Reviewed August 12, 2013

What a gorgeous setting to spend a weekend! Please ignore the bogus reports if you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area as it was a very special place. The rooms were very spacious and well presented with everything on hand, and the rest of the property has a British charm about it that you just can't fake. The gardens in particular are magical and absolutely stunning, with lots of little areas to discover, a thai inspired pagoda to relax in, and a tennis court if you're feeling energetic. Susie and Michael couldn't have been more welcoming and we had a thoroughly lovely weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: The Seaside room/suite was truly lovely

We stayed here for two nights as we had a wedding to attend and a BBQ on the following day. It came highly recommended by the brides parents and we were delighted with our choice. It was actually even better than the photographs. The owners Susie and Michael Skinner were very welcoming. nothing seemed too much trouble. Great full English breakfast and fresh fruit salad. Beautiful house, beautiful situation with magical gardens.Gorgeous Thai garden room which was recently built by Michael and his son, and so lovely to relax in overlooking the south downs. The only downside is that we couldn't stay longer, but we will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the barn area, which is separate from the main house so I can't comment on the othe...

The owners turned their noses up at us as we entered the farmhouse. Very rude. Mike was nasty, and we were woken up at 2am by him shouting in the bar downstairs.
2 nights - very poor and overpriced. Made us feel very unwelcome.

Please disregard this review as the reviewer did not, and could not have stayed at our property, as we were away for a few days on the relevant date!

I'm sorry to write this review but this b&b is currently overpriced and overrated.
Allthough the owners try to act normal and helpfull it is clear that we as clients are just tolerated.
Room we stayed in was not clean at start , later on it improved with a daily change of towels and cups and glasses however i feel this b&b is in need of a major cleanup and a change of furniture.
Since we stayed at the sunflower room the double bed (ikea ?) and it's matras have seen better days thus a restfull night is a long way from your dreams and if the room upstair is occupied the peace and quiet is long gone. Breakfast is average , i will not go any deeper in this subject as what happend to us is hopefully a one off .... One pointer for the owners , rather then stuffing every bit of free space full of trinkets the same applys for the breakfast area, keep it clean let the rosepebbles in the garden were they belong and give the place a good cleanup !
Our rating is overpriced, not clean and poor sleepcomfort.

We have just had a wonderful 5 days stay with charming hosts Susie & Mike. A beautiful house & warm welcoming home. Delicious breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble for Susie. The house is in a lovely setting & there is lots to "see & do" in the area. We had the Four Poster Bedroom & it was very comfortable. Thank you Mike & Susie!

Thoroughly enjoyable two-nights stay in the four-poster bedroom in this glorious farmhouse. Mike and Susie are very welcoming hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They have furnished the house to an extremely high standard and our bedroom was comfortable, spacious and with the triple aspect windows we had glorious views over the countryside. Breakfast was just lovely with the choice available very extensive. Susie's cooked breakfasts were to die for and the plate and table decorations were an extra special touch. We would thoroughly recommend Clayton Wickham Farmhouse for your next quiet and relaxed B & B stay.

thoroughly enjoyed my weekend with mine hosts Susie & Mike. The house & gardens are an absolute joy and nothing was too much trouble. I was visiting my sons in nearby villages , so it was an ideal choice. I would certainly recommend this unique farmhouse,as it is so rare to have such peace and quiet, coupled with such wonderful surrounings. It is also ideally placed for the many places of interest to visit. Thank you
