A very good place to stay in & certainly one of the best that we have used. Ideal for a couple, very well “kitted” out. We have nothing to complain about. Good location for Brighton etc
Short stay for wedding and the rugby
Only a short stay as this was intended to be for a wedding and the rugby at Twickenham. The standard of the property was of an extremely high standard which we could not fault. The owners Jo and Gavin were very helpful with information about facilities such as taxis and local hostelries. Jo was on hand to welcome us and ensure everything was in place and again on our departure but was never intrusive. The welcome pack was very thoughtful and most useful. Did not explore the area due to our commitments but is certainly ideal for the Downs and Brighton and with London an hour by train. Would highly recommend.
Welcoming, clean and well kept accommodation. Lovely hosts - welcome pack.
Great location for exploring the South Downs, surrounding market towns and south coast. Henfield is a small market town but had everything we needed - pub (meals out) supermarket, downs link way. Quant old church and surrounding buildings. Would have no hesitation is staying again. Highly recommended.
Very comfortable, stylish and well maintained accommodation; ideally situated for accessing the many delights of West Sussex and the surrounding area.
The Whistle Stop Henfield
A rare gem! Accommodation very comfortable and well thought out in a tranquil setting. All the 'goodies' and extras were much appreciated.
An exceptional place to stay in lovely countryside.
Fantastic peaceful property with welcoming helpful hosts
We stayed over the Easter weekend and were blessed with beautiful weather which allowed us to take advantage of the gorgeous garden. The studio is beautifully laid out and was immaculately clean. Jo was so welcoming and really helpful with hints and tips on local restaurants and parking and so on. But never intrusive. Superbly located for the South Downs and Brighton but in a lovely village with a fab pub serving delicious food. Would definitely recommend for those looking for some rest and relaxation.
