Me, my uncle and my cousin travelled down south from near Manchester to ride "South Downs Epic" mountain bike event. We booked a night at Beacon Lodge which as it is conveniently located just a few miles form the course.
Arrived on a Saturday evening and were greeted by the owners Neil and Gloria, who immediately gave us a tour of our rooms. I was staying in a double room within the main house, which has it's own bathroom across the hall, and the others had use of the "family annex" which is an extension separate to the house with it's own en suite.
The house has a nice garden at the back with views out over the fields. As it was a warm evening we took the opportunity to sit out at the garden table with a drink and play with Neil and Glorias two friendly dogs. (Guests are allowed to bring dogs too if you like).
Both bedrooms were perfectly presented and clean and had facilities to make tea and coffee. The beds themselves were also comfortable so had a good nights sleep. We each had some bottled water and a KitKat in our rooms too which was a nice touch!
We were asked what time we would like breakfast the following morning and we requested half 7, as we had to be out on our bikes by half 8. I thought this may be a little early, but it they didn't seem to mind at all (sorry!).
Breakfast was very good. There was a selection of different cereals, fruit salad, yoghurt, cooked breakfast if you like, tea, fresh coffee and orange juice. We definitely didn't go hungry!
All in all it was an entirely pleasant stay and I definitely recommend this B&B to others. Neil and Gloria were the perfect hosts and are simply lovely people.
