My fiance and I stayed here for one night for a friend's wedding nearby. The owners could not have been more helpful - we were offered a cup of tea on arrival and our luggage was carried up into the beautifully appointed bedroom, which had stunning views over the hills towards Bodiam Castle. They even offered to lend us torches for walking home from the wedding and driving us back to the wedding venue to pick up the car the next morning! After a night of fun, we came home to the house, which smelled wonderfully of freshly baked bread - which we were served at breakfast the next morning! Breakfast was amazing - a wide selection of homemade and local foods that made us feel spoilt rotten. Through the open windows, we could hear birds sing and watch pheasants explore the garden. Although we only stayed for one night, it is a place that makes you feel you are on holiday as soon as you set your foot into it, and we were sad to leave. Congrats to the owners - you have created a wonderful haven of tranquility and beauty!
