    The ceilings are very low. anybody above 180cm cannot stand upright in most parts of the cottage! I feel this should have been mentioned in the advert as a downside to the quaint 500 year old building. The cottage is 5m from the road leading to the cliff so expect about 3-5 cars speeding past every minute during peak hours. The 'garden' is minuscule and can only be accessed walking around the cottage. It is not suitable for children to play in a safe environment. As a pet friendly cottage there is the lingering smell of wet dog and hairs everywhere on the carpet and sofa. The owner lives right next door and above so privacy is limited The surrounding area is amazing. Great pub 200m away. Walks can start from the cottage past fields of horses, cows and sheep to the delight of our children ! The kitchen was well stocked with tea, biscuits, kitchen towels, detergent, bin bags etc. The Landlord was friendly and helpful. Overall the value for money was not the best.

    Lovely old cottage, comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Pretty garden at rear and nice pub five minutes walk. Beautiful countryside, coast and villages in the vicinity. On a fairly busy road but can walk from the house up track opposite.

    We were made welcome on arrival and the fresh flowers and biscuits were a nice touch. A great base for exploring the South Downs and surrounding places of interest, our dog certainly enjoyed the lovely walks right on the doorstep. The cottage was cosy and had all the necessary amenities.Despite the warnings the low ceilings claimed a few victims!! A rear access to the garden would have made things a little easier and the garden was a little on the small side. Recommend the Eight Bells pub which is only 50 yds away, the staff were very obliging and their liver and bacon with bubble was the best i have tasted.
