“Relaxing base to explore East Sussex”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Julia and Paul were great hosts, a warm welcome and very informative. Set in beautiful countryside The Byre was well equipped and comfortable, an ideal base to return to after a day exploring the area. A very relaxing holiday.

“WHAT A LOVELY PLACE”
Reviewed April 30, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have stayed here on 3 occasions and each time , the welcome here has been tremendous .Pattletons is situated ,firstly down a country lane , and secondly down a track to the accommodation. This means is is very secluded and the only noise in the morning is the bird song . What more could any one want . In the guest book , visitors return time and time again . Book in quick .

“Superb, what more can we say”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a fantastic week in this lovely cottage with our dog. Paul and Julia were very accommodating, letting us help ourselves to their lovely fresh vegetables direct from their allotment. Julia also kindly looked after our dog one afternoon when we went to visit a local house and garden.
The woods that they own are suberb and very secure. Maggie had a wonderful time scampering around with her new best friend Welly. She also became very pally with their other dog Ghilie. We will definitely be putting The Byre on our list to return.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This whas our third stay at the Byre and once again it was fantastic. Julia and Paul are always willing to help you to find places to go to, where to find the best tearoom or a good pub. Special thanks for letting us eat so many vegetables and fruits from your garden, i never new that broadbeans could taste so delicious! Our dog Paddy had the best time ever with Wellie, they have worn eachother out every single day. The Byre is very well equiped, the bed is the best one i have ever encounterd in any cottage, as i am 1.92 meters that is a challenge. The Byre is situated in a very quiet area but a Sanesbury's superstore and a Tesco's superstore are only 10 minutes away, for good meat the's Archers' in Westfield.
