My husband and I stayed for an overnighter. The b & b is on the main road. I was concerned re road noise so requested a room at the rear. This room was very good, no road noise, and it was lovely overlooking the garden. The only noise you could sometimes just hear was a plane flying out of Gatwick. Bear in mind we sleep with the windows open, you probably wouldn't hear anything if it was shut. The double glazing is very good.
Sandie and Brian decored the room beautifully. It was quite a big room, with nice big chairs where you could sit and relax. Not very often you get that, so was greatly appreciated. The bathroom looked new, and was also extremely clean. Very well presented.
Its lovely when you have such a nice welcome after a busy day in the car, and our hosts certainly did that. We enjoyed a cup of tea and a piece of Sandys cake - very yummy. Nice thought.
Our breakfast was also very nice, and plenty to choose from. Parking was right out the front. We enjoyed a dinner next door at the local pub. Not bad, but there are a few places to eat not far away in the town of Petworth. A town we didn't get to explore, will next time. Very cute.
