    Lovely place - quiet and peaceful location. Is a very rural so for anyone wanting bright lights of an evening it wouldn't be suitable. We found the accommodation very good - high quality kitchen appliances. The reason for lower marking were the sofas - very low and very deep seats. People did struggle to get out of them. Place was immaculate throughout. Lovely homemade cake on arrival - thank you. Bit disappointed with a note in the bedrooms saying dogs shouldn't be allowed in the rooms when you pay for a dog to stay there. Everything on the one level so was ideal for older party members - except the sofa. But we had a fantastic week. People at the site were very helpful and friendly. Was a lovely quiet and relaxing week away.

    This property is very new, clean, warm and tidy, and very well supplied with cooking utensils and other amenities. The beds are comfortable. It is in a very quiet and peaceful position at the end of a country lane which is seemingly used more by horses and dog walkers than vehicles. We used it as a centre for driving to some of the many National Trust/English Heritage in East and West Sussex, and for this it suited very well. Our only reservation concerned the partially-obscured glass door on the bathroom, and with the skylight in the en-suite shower, which made the bedroom quite light at night even with the blind down.

    We loved the cottage and it was very well equipped . Everything worked and we would have given a 10 - except for the sofas! One large , deep , low and saggy sofa is not too bad if there are other seats available , but when there is no alternative it made it almost impossible to sit comfortably and relax in the evenings. The beds on the other hand were very comfy!

    The cottage was warm, comfortable and clean, really enjoyed it and planning to re book. Didn't get to really meet the owner, and not as much information in the cottage as we are used to, but brilliant wi fi connection and mobile signal made up for that.

    Absolutely loved the barn and how it has been fitted out - it was everything I hoped it would be. Jo, nick, Laura and Mike were very kind and welcoming. I would stay at the barn again.
