“Ideal stopover, very friendly reception, everything you could want laid on!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had a great stay of one night in the Poppy room, a cosy twin room with full range of teas coffee and hot chocolate on offer.
Beds were very comfortable and bathroom spotless and spacious (although no mirror for shaving!).
There is a great eater that serves enormous portions just down the road.
We really enjoyed the sitting room with games and television in downstairs for guests to use.
Breakfast has been perfected!
Only downside is that you're right on a fairly noisy main road, but this doesn't bother you too much come night time.

We were walking the South Downs Way and were lucky enough to get the last minute room due to earlier cancelation. Beautiful 16th century cottage with original features (please check out the floor in the kitchen- I have taken some photos but decided best not to spoil the surprise : )
Breakfast was choice of English or vegetarian and they were both delicious.

Sue and Steve were really friendly which added to the whole experience.
Absolutely gutted I didn't get the chance to try the cakes in the tea room as they looked yummy.
Also there is a really nice pub/restaurant down the road which Sue can book for you.

Al in all definitely worth a little detour if you are in the area!

Room Tip: our room was only one with the bathroom next door which was slightly annoying as I was conscious of...

Definitely recommend an overnight stop here. Easy to find and only about half mile off the south downs way. My friend and I plus her dog were made most welcome and we indulged in a delicious cream tea on arrival! Lovely accomodation, good choice of breakfast and you can order a packed lunch.

We stayed here whilst walking the South Downs Way and were given a room in The Malthouse.
The room was nicely decorated, the bathroom was modern with a powerful shower and the view was of the rear garden.
Breakfast was served in the tea rooms over the road. The cooked breakfast was very tasty and I had the best veggie breakfast of my trip so far.
The owner was very helpful when we had problems with our baggage.
The only gripe we had was that the tea rooms were only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and we had been looking forward to having cake at the end of our walk.

We arrived late in the afternoon and expected to be told they were closed... but no way! The family greeted us warmly and the tea we had was the absolutely iconic English tea at its best!!! Warm early-summer sunshine, lovely home-made cakes and a lovely cup of tea! The garden was a teat.

Room Tip: They have a car park right next to the property... but its pretty small.

Stayed here in May 2013 while walking the South Downs. Was given a room in The Malthouse which is a Grade II listed building dating back to the 17th century. Check out the well built into the kitchen floor! Steve & Sue were very welcoming and I had a peaceful nights sleep. Breakfast was lovely with a wide choice of options cooked to taste. Plates arrived hot so good stayed warm throughout a leisurely feed. Highly recommended!!!

From the moment we arrived our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The room that we were in was full of character and despite being 500 years old it was very warm, quiet and extremely comfortable.

After an evening meal at the local pub (just 5 minutes walk away) we had our own door keys so we didn't need to disturb anyone. The breakfast was in their tea rooms and was fantastic, great food and great service.

These guys really care about you having an enjoyable stay.
