“Perfect for a couple and dog”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The studio was a good size, well equipped, clean and comfortable. The shower was excellent too. The private patio was pleasant and the rest of the garden was interestingly planted. Our hosts, Joy and John were extremely pleasant and helpful and their little dog is a cutie.
The place is very conveniently place beside a good and quiet pub/restaurant and is sited away from the busy A26 road.
In all, with the luck of brilliantly sunny bank holiday weather made an extremely pleasant getaway.

“A delightful 'getaway'”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This property is in an ideal location for getting to know East Sussex. It is set in an idyllic garden and the property has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Joy and John are most welcoming - of my dog, too - and the home-made scones on arrival were an added treat!
I would definitely like to visit again.

“The perfect place to stay”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Joy and John have thought of everything to make The Getaway a perfect place to stay. We were welcomed with homemade scones and jam which was such a lovely touch. The studio is so well equipped, it's comfortable and quiet. The shower is amazing! Also, it is great value for money. Can't fault it - 10 out of 10.

“Wonderful place for 2!”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Beautiful cottage in lovely grounds with very welcoming owners - Joy & John who provided delicious scones on our arrival. Despite it being Dec/Jan the cottage was lovely, warm and cosy. Everything you could need was provided. It's set in a beautiful area with easy access to many great walks and Beachy Head, Seven Sisters and Brighton are all within easy reach.

“Delightful and relaxing!”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived home yesterday from a lovely few days break at The Getaway. We had such a relaxing time in the beautiful cottage and surrounding gardens. The owners Joy and John were so helpful and welcoming. Arrived to yummy homemade scones! They cute little dog Cara is friendly and adorable. The pub next door "The Cock" also had really nice gardens and delicious food.
We will definitely be going back!
