My husband and I were greeted by Jen & Ray as if old family friends. We stayed in their homely, and extremely clean first floor spacious double room for two nights, and spent the evenings watching the sun set while listening to an array of classical music, provided in the room which we played softly on the lovely old fashion music stack system consisting of a tape deck, record and CD player.
The room was a wonderful haven, large, clean and every thing you need to settle soon after an arrival, as well as bedtime itself. It really felt like a farm house within a wilderness of what has to be a beautiful part of East Sussex and an artists or writers paradise.
Jen's ample breakfast kept us going well past lunch time! We had a full English on both days with scrambled eggs which we highly recommend, especially as the last order is at 10am - for those who wish an extra few more moments in bed.
Although Rye is no more than 15 minutes walk away and is a quite hamlet in itself, the real seclusion is at The Mill House where you can stroll within the large paddock attached to their garden.
We truly felt spoilt by Jen and Ray giving a five star service without the cold contemporary pretense that is so often served in what seams to be a clinical practice. They offer the comforts of a more desirable home from home, which they offer as softly as the feathers that are encased within their Egyptian cotton bedding.
We will certainly be visiting again before the end of the year.
