Charmant cottage dans un magnifique village
Un séjour parmi les plus mémorables : le cottage est idéalement situé au cœur des paysages à couper le souffle. Les southdowns offrent de multiples possibilités de balades et de randonnées et Amberley est à lui seul un petit bijou.the Roost est un logement charmant, extrêmement bien rénové avec tout le confort et les équipements attendus. La terrasse donne sur le jardin et les collines, l’endroit est paisible et idéal pour le repos.Sandie et Geoff sont des hôtes à la fois très attentifs à notre confort, très accueillants, appréciant la conversation et aussi très discrets. Ils ont été d’une aide très précieuse pendant notre séjour. Bien que très calme, Amberley est à 20 ou 30 minutes de route de très belles villes animées (Arundel, Chichester, Petworth…). : architecture, commerces, antiquités, pub et typiques tea shops…La mer et les plages sont tout prices également…en 2 semaines, nous n’avons pas encore tout exploré !

Un havre de paix au cœur d’un magnifique coin d’Angleterre

En 15 jours, nous n’avons pas encore tout exploré. The Roost est à recommander sans aucune hésitation.

We've already stayed here twice!
The Roost is a beautiful cosy barn conversion, well appointed, with the advantage of a pretty, well-tended back garden and a stunning view over the rolling South Downs. Hosts Geoff and Sandie (who live in the house next door) give you a warm welcome and are on hand for anything you need. It couldn't be better situated to explore the lovely village of Amberley and the surrounding countryside and villages. We were so taken with the tranquillity and charm of it all it that we came back for a second stay a month later! Highly recommended.

Lovely place to stay
Very comfortable little place to stay in a beautiful village. Sandie and Geoff were very friendly and helpful. The patio at the back of the cottage was a lovely place to sit on warm evenings, when we weren't admiring Amberley's thatched houses or in one of the local pubs. Lots of places to visit in the area and the South Downs are on the doorstep. If we lived closer we would definitely visit again.

A rare find!
We spent 4 blissful days at this idyllic setting. The Roost is an intimate and beautiful place with a lovely garden. We spent a lot of time in our lovely terrace enjoying the sunshine and the flowers. The pub next door was excellent and the walks fantastic. Our hosts were perfect, very welcoming, kind and accommodating. I cannot recommend this place enough! We are definitely coming back!

An idyllic retreat in the Sussex Downs
Ann, my wife, and I have just spent a splendid week staying at The Roost in the charming village of Amberley in West Sussex. The accommodation is perfect for a couple: comfortable & cosy and with all the amenities you're likely to require. The owners, Sandie & Geoff, live next door and are very friendly & helpful without being intrusive in any way. There is an excellent pub, The Black Horse, about 200 metres up the road whose food is gastropub standard but not pretentious e.g a home made steak and ale pie was superb. Altogether, we had a great week and we thoroughly recommend The Roost to any couple looking for a stress-free comfortable break.

A lovely few days in Amberley
We stayed at the roost for a week and it was lovely. Sandie and Geoff greeted us with a warm welcome, the roost is stunning and in a fantastic location if you enjoy walking, the South Downs way is easy to find and wonderful to explore. Arundel is not far away and has some lovely spots for breakfast and cakes! We enjoyed dinner out at the black horse in Amberley, the George at burpham and also the Italian in Arundel! We hope to return!

Thank you both very much for your positive review. It was good to have you visit us here in Amberley and although the weather over your stay was a tad variable it didn't prevent you from enjoying the lovely Sussex countryside .......we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
