“Everything you could wish for in self catering accommodation!”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Spotlessly clean, well-equipped accommodation in a tranquil location. Ideal for visiting Lewes, Brighton and NT properties - Batemans and Sissinghurst well worth a visit. Excellent nearby pubs.
The welcome pack provided was an added bonus. Would not hesitate to recommend Rock House Mews.

“Lovely Little Annex, Lovely Location!”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This little annex is really lovely, it has been decorated beautifully and was spotlessly clean! We arrived to a lovely welcome basket with fresh eggs (From they're own chickens!), milk, butter, bread, a little bottle of rose, all sorts! This was very helpful and a lovely little treat. The location is great, close to shops, in the country side but also close to the seaside! I would suggest a car being needed to get around as it could be a long walk to some places.
The Annex is very spacious with everything you will need to stay. The owners are very nice too. The garden is wonderful! Los of chickens and a few sheep which were so lovely to have right on the doorstep.
We would recommend this lovely place and have already done so too a family member! We will be back at some point for sure :)

“A little Gem.”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Where do l start, I was blown away by Rock House Mews, the apartment is spotlessly clean, light and airy and the decor is beautiful. The kitchen is fully equipped with every thing you would need for your stay. The bathroom and shower again spotlessly clean and lovely shower. Plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom and the bed is so comfy such a bonus. The
views from Rock House Mews are to die for, sheep in the field and chickens and views across the hills of Sussex. It is about thirty minutes to East Grinstead or Lewis from the apartment and the bluebell railway is seven minutes away all of these are well worth a visit. If you go to Lewis you must visit the Flee Market and also a great place to eat is Bills (over the bridge bottom of hill) we had a great lunch there. Our hosts Jill and John are lovely people so friendly and helpful, when we arrived there was a welcome basket with Milk, bread, fruit, fresh eggs and a bottle of beer that went down so well after our hot journey. I would highly recommend Rock House Mews and we hope to be back.

“Perfect weekend hideaway”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Just returned from a weekend at this mews
The apartment is very well thought out , great use of space and well decorated .
Jill was very friendly on arrival even though it was late in the evening , (having been caught in Friday traffic) a marvellous welcome hamper , including fresh eggs and a bottle of wine was waiting for us.
The only downside to note is that the spiral staircase in the pictures is the ONLY access , so could be difficult for those less able and also if you have lots of luggage , although Jill does help carry this.
That said , we booked thus as an alternative to a premier inn , which we normally use for sporting competition weekends and we were not disappointed.

“As comfortable as home”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My family (Wife and 2 children, 9 and 17 years old) and I visited UK to spend Christmas with my family in Brighton and Eastbourne. The location of this apartment was ideal as it is about 30 minute car journey to Brighton, Eastbourne and the Airport.
As it was Christmas and we would be spending more time than usual in the apartment , we wanted something that was clean, comfortable and relaxing but at a reasonable price. The pictures of the property looked really nice and upon arrival we were not disappointed. The place was clean, warm and felt homely right from the start. The double bed in the bedroom was nice and comfy with crisp clean sheets and the children had not complaints sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room. Jill had even put up a Christmas tree and stockings for the Children. Our 9 year old was excited to help John collect eggs each morning and made friends with Panther the farm cat who tried on occasion to invite himself into the apartment. Christmas morning was perfect for a walk so we headed out to find a geocache that was nearby. There are numerous footpaths that you can follow for a lovely walk in the country. We found Jill and John to be very nice and they were always happy to help with any requests. Now we have found this gem of an apartment this will be our first choice whenever we are visiting the UK.
