Could not find fault with anything at matchbox. SO IMPRESSED that we can not wait and book again for another 2 weeks next January. Clean and cosy. Home from home everything you may need is here ready for you to use.

Super location within easy walking distance of two great pubs and walks on the South Downs. Also easy walking distance to the Weald & Downland Museum (they have a great new cafe which you can visit without paying museum entrance charges) and the West Dean Gardens in the grounds of the college. These gardens are really worth a visit and include a nice arboretum walk as well. The cottage itself has everything you need, including parking, and is clean and well equipped - even includes some basic provisions so you don't have to hunt for shops before you can relax and unwind. Highly recommended and look forward to visiting again.
