5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I booked this holiday cottage last minute. What a find! It is situated in a very idyllic setting, with the South Downs literally on your doorstep. The fixtures and fittings are exceptional, nothing has been overlooked. The 'extras' that welcomed us; home made scones, preserves, and local honey, along with tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread and butter, were fully appreciated. The owner also provides toiletries and dishwashing and laundry detergents.

“Fabulous cottage - perfect for young children”

We have just returned home after 3 nights staying in 2 Moatside Cottages and had a fantastic stay. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was particularly well equipped and it's clear the owners have put thought into the finishings and details. The open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge space was larger than it appeared in the photographs and was plenty of space for a family. The beds were especially comfortable! We liked the addition of the shower/ sink area in the main bedroom. We didn't use the outside space due to the weather but there is seating and a fenced garden area. It is shared with the other cottage. The extra touches such as the cake, jam, bread, butter and milk were really appreciated as were the dishwasher and washing machine powder!

There's nothing negative to say about Moatside Cottages. It is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The one floor works really well for families with young children as we didn't need to worry about stair gates and we could tend to our baby really easily in the next room in the evening. Both bedrooms are next to each other, we don't always find this is the case with one floor properties.

The cottage is a really good location for Brighton and surrounding areas, we hope to return again in the near future! We will be definitely be recommending Newtimber Holiday Cottages to our friends.

“Well equipped and comfortable cottages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Seven friends and I rented both Moatside cottages for a three-night stay. Couldn't fault the cottages. They are newly refurbished and kitted out to the highest quality. Great kitchen facilities, comfortable beds and good TVs. Very warm and cosy. The owners had also left us a Victorian sponge and lemon drizzle cake (which didn't last long). Only fault was that the water for the shower could have been hotter - and there aren't too many great walks nearby the cottage.
