    This is a beautiful little place. The photos don't do it justice. We really enjoyed our weekend here and cooked both nights in the lovely kitchen. It is in the middle of the countryside but close to another converted farmhouse. It is nowhere near shops which we knew from previous reviews and were fine about. However, I would recommend you pack for all eventualities (if you don't plan to leave the peace and quiet of the countryside) as we ended up having to drive 20 minutes to find a pharmacy on one of the days. We enjoyed a lovely walk on the Sunday morning in the picturesque countryside nearby. The host was friendly over the phone, and check in was painless. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing weekend break.

    Cottage was lovely in a very quiet location with lovely grounds, you definitely need a car the only local pub is a good 35 mins walk, could do with Wi-Fi as there is hardly any phone signal

    We really enjoyed our break here. The accommodation is small but was fine for a couple. Very peaceful location. No shops nearby, but East Grinstead only a 10 minute drive away where there is everything you need.

    The location was great, but the directions were not so great. We spent an hour finding the cottage. A sign or two would have been welcome, and the directions and map could stand to be improved.

    An excellent cottage perfect for two, in a very peaceful location. East Grinstead 5 mins drive away for shops and restaurants. Easy access to woodland walks from the cottage. Everything we needed, BBQ used most evenings.
