Having stayed at the apartment before, we knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect and the weather was just the icing on the cake. Rod & Jackie. I feel that we shall be returning before too long.

Well renovated quiet country cottage

5 of 5
We wanted a quiet place to stay for 2 couples near to Lewes and this cottage is in a quiet country Lane approached via a series of twisting lanes from the main roads. There are other houses on the lane including working farms. The cottage is one of 3 conversions from the original grain store. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped and the owners, Katie and Michael were very friendly and helpful, promptly answering our questions when we had them. The cottage has 2 double bedrooms which are big enough, but not huge; comfortable beds and an en-suite shower room for each. Downstairs is open plan with a quiet corner for watching TV- we were there during the World Cup- and another comfortable sitting area at the front for those who just want to sit. The dining table was fine for the 4 of us, with space to put the foods we had bought. The fridge was quite small, but we could store other items in the freezer- we had brought some things from home to use up so it was a bit overfull at times. The garden is small but private enough to sit outside. We enjoyed the stay from where we explored the local attractions and we had good days out at Batemans and Sheffield Park and Lewes. We would return there if we wanted to come back to East Sussex.
