    This cottage is brilliant in all respects Except 1, which |is explained below The lack of connectivity via Mobile or Internet. There are many areas of rural Sussex that have poor or no mobile coverage by any network, this is one of them, if you walk around outside you can if you are lucky get service but once you get service don't move !! Otherwise if you move 99% of the time it drops out. Reading the visitors book this is mentioned by almost all visitors and equally the lack of any form of Internet connectivity WiFi hot spot etc.. Obviously the owner can do nothing about the Mobile coverage but the owner could create a wiFi access for this and the barn conversion on the site. I am sure visitors would be quite happy to pay a small fee if they required connectivity we certainly would have, we didn't want a high speed link rather just a reliable link so we could use email to contact family. We live abroad and family in UK wanted to come and visit us while we were in UK without connectivity we had to go to great length to find WiFi or mobile access points to make these arrangements and that spoiled what was an idyllic location in the sussex downs.

    A very good base for visiting the surrounding area. Only gave a 6 for cleanliness as although at eye level everything was very clean, there were a lot of cobwebs around the ceiling area. Also, the cottage is very dark, having to put the lights on even first thing in the morning. Could do with extra uplighting. Having said that, overall it was a very nice place to stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for your feedback, we are glad you found the property to be clean. We do take great pride in ensuring our cleaning is to an extremely high standard, however we do get the odd cobweb from time to time. With it being a converted barn with very high vaulted ceilings, with the amount of beams, in addition we are in a rural spot close to the woodland, so they can appear overnight. We are onsite so we are always available to come and clean them away. We have plenty of spotlights in the barn, as well as side lights, so it’s a shame you felt the lighting could be improved. We have switched to LED recently which may make them very slightly dimmer but do take on board your feedback and hope to see you back here again.

    This is a lovely cottage, warm, welcoming and well equipped, with glorious views of beautiful woodland rich in wildlife. It is well positioned for all the main attractions in East and West Sussex whilst offering a peaceful (if potentially rather muddy) rural location. Our sole reservation was the total lack of either a mobile signal or wi-fi, which for us, staying to be near someone who was in hospital, was a significant nuisance. However, if your aim is to 'get away from it all' this is a very comfortable and perfectly relaxing place to stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for your feedback, we do realise that mobile signal is not great here due to our rural location (although vodafone works well). We offer free use of our wifi and there is also a payphone that all guests can use. We are on site and we do explain this to guests, many of whom enjoy the peace for a restful break!

    We had a lovey stay here and the location is perfect if you want to get away from it all but still be close enough to visit nearby towns, national parks and coastlines. Our time was cut short by 1 day due to the weather so it was a shame we were unable to get to the coast as planned however we were able to get out and about (you need a car) during the 2 days we actually spent here. The only issue we had was we couldn't figure out the heating as it seemed to come on during the middle of the night and we were unable to manually put it on when we needed it. It was not a big deal as we only stayed 3 (actually 2 in the end) nights. Overall great place, great location and enjoyable stay

    We opted for this holiday let as we wanted a peaceful, secluded holiday...and it 100% fitted the bill! Super friendly owners, beautiful and accessible local area with lots of charm and things to do. We spent most evenings relaxing on the lovely terrace and the accommodation itself was kitted out with everything we needed. Our 3 year old daughter was so sad to leave (as were we)...our only regret was we didn't book for two weeks!

    Super location for our week. We walked The South Downs Way, but almost wished we weren't so we could have spent more time enjoying the area near The Old Packhouse! Our hosts were secretive fairies who we hardly met but were there if we needed them. The good weather gave us the chance to enjoy all our meals al fresco on the decking. The cake and milk was unexpected and most welcome. Our dog loved it too - it was a quiet, safe place to be.
