We had a really lovely time in this stunning, well equipped, clean, accommodation. Lovely big bed and very comfortable living space. It is ideally situated in a road off the high street which has lovely pubs, coffee shops and a small supermarket. There is a selection of takeaways as well. Easy bus journeys to Brighton or Shoreham. We only stayed 2 nights which was too short and would love to go back. The garden is also beautiful and backs onto to the owners and we had the pleasure of a visit from of one of their lovely dogs, Macy. And a welcome pack which was much appreciated. All in all, an ideal place for couples, can’t fault it!
Wonderful accommodation, faultless.
The accommodation exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully designed and the owners had thought of everything to make the experience such a joy.
Shame about the parking
Great studio dire parking . Did'nt meet owners.
EVERYTHING WE REQUIRED TO MAKE OUR STAY AS COMFORTABLE AND STRESS FREE AS POSSIBLE
5*All the way
We spent a wonderful 4 nights in the property and wish it could have been longer. Welcoming hosts who provided every comfort and attention to detail. Beautiful relaxing garden in a lovely village. Lots to do in the surrounding area as little or much as you like. Thanks for a lovely time
Fantastic home away from home
What a marvellous place this was to stay. So welcoming and with everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The local area is lovely. I loved the village, especially the bakery just around the corner. It’s a good job I don’t live there as I couldn’t resist those Belgium buns! I would then need the enormous bed 😂�
We will definitely stay again if we visit that area.
Thank you Jo
