We chose the house because it was located close to Brighton, as three of us were running in the Brighton Marathon. The house was a lovely place and we enjoyed our stay there. It was just the right size for all eight of us to have our individual space, but also to have family time together. It had a nice outdoor area to relax. It was just perfect for us and we had a great holiday week here. The house was clean, spacious and very well equipped and we recommend the place.
Thank you for your kind review. You were perfect guests and left the cottage spotless.
Fantastic house, full of character.
The cottage is a beautiful traditional house with lovely furniture and facilities. We especially liked cooking on the aga, but could use the modern oven too if needed. The beds were comfy and the house nice and warm. The situation is spectacular and very wild. Great for walking and exploring. Uckfield is 5 minutes drive away which has everything. We thoroughly recommend this place.
Thank you for your review and we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay
