1 Bedroom Cottages
Why Rasshied chose Danehill
The Location is perfect - quiet rural setting in the Ashdown Forest - yet only 25mins drive to the M25 or M23. we love being able to walk directly onto the Ashdown Forest.
What makes this Cottage unique
Originally a large dairy farm, our facilities were converted and built in 2012 to offer outstanding accommodation & training for horse and rider. The location offers breathtaking countryside rides & walks. Our visitors are many and varied. Some bring horses for training, and some choose to come to walk, escape city life for a few days, visit places of interest, or attend Glyndebourne Opera. Many guests who stay with us attend local weddings at Gravetye, Ashdown Park Hotel or Buxted.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Cooking facilities and access to the facilities were poor.
Nice property well equiped so lovely I could bring my dog
The property is well furnished & has everything you could want for a short stay. I was able to bring my dog & there are lots of footpaths to explore close by. I found the underfloor heating too warm & the TV did not work otherwise a very comfortable place to stay.
quiet, calming and relaxing
We were having some building work at home so needed somewhere close by for the 2 of use and our cat. This couldn't have been more ideal for us. Big enough as to not get under each others feet, quiet enough for us to relax away from the stress of the building work, and homely enough that even our cat settled in within minutes.
On our first night we looked over the hedge and saw deer grazing wild and what with the horses (its a working stable/equestrian center and a good one by the looks of it) and sheep, it couldn't have been more peaceful and at one with nature if it tried.
I'd recommend this for anyone interested in horses for sure. I believe they offer courses or rides but that's not for me. I'd also recommend it to anyone wanting to use it as a base as its quite central to a lot of National Trust and English heritage sites. But most of all i'd just recommend it because it was so relaxing.
Staff/owner really friendly and left us to it which was nice. Easy to get to. Facilities ideal but we ate out most of the time. 2 restaurants close by (Indian and Italian) we're really good.
We would love to stay again but doubtful as its so close to where we live and only wanted somewhere close while the building work was being carried out.
Property okay but told us we would get an upgrade free of charge and did not happen
Was okay but did not respond to emails ,would not stay again
