Little gem in the beautiful countryside
Lovely lodge perfect for a couple. Huge comfortable bed and we'll equipped kitchen. Had air con which was amazing. Slept better here than I do at home😁� Owners Rod and Gerry very helpful but unobtrusive. Close to beautiful countryside and 20 mins from Brighton. The village of Hurstpierpoint is well served with pubs shops and restaurants. Nice place.
Thank you for such a lovely review. You were what we call 'perfect guests' those who enjoy all that the surrounding area has to offer. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am so pleased that you had such a lovely break. We look forward to hosting you again sometime.
Lovely property with everything you need & great location!
The property was lovely, bigger than it seems in the pictures & had everything that you could need. The location is great with several good places to eat & drink within easy walking distance & others within a short drive.
Excellent location for lots of walks & good information pack in the property about the area.
We had a really lovely & relaxing break. Thank you!
Thanks to our lovely guests, who enjoyed our Lodge and all the surroundings. Sussex has a lot to offer, and it’s always good when we are visited by lovely people who make the most of what is around. We look forward to seeing you again.
Small but perfectly formed!
The Lodge is very cosy, but everything you need has been incorporated, we even had a gift box of gluten free chocolate biscuits which I really enjoyed! The velux roof light has its own roller blind so the lodge can be made totally dark at night. Comfy garden chairs were provided so we had breakfast in the little courtyard garden on a couple of sunny mornings. We used the DVD to watch one of the selection provided but only tried to watch the television once and somehow didn't manage to follow the instructions but that didn't matter as we didn't particularly need to watch. The washing machine did a great job and is very cunningly hidden away under the breakfast counter. We didn't need to use the dishwasher but everything was provided for using it if we had wanted to. For some reason we couldn't identify the switch to turn on the heated towel rail but in mid summer we were able to dry the big fluffy towels provided on the drying rack cleverly tucked away beside the wardrobe( inside which were an ironing board and iron). The village is charming, I found a bakery selling gluten free bread there too - a real bonus in a tiny village. We definitely recommend this charming retreat near a Brighton for a relaxing two person break, and we're delighted to be so kindly welcomed by the owners who gave excellent directions to enable us to find the Lodge.
Very nice, clean and comfortable! Nicely welcomed by our hosts!
Stylish and well-equipped
Greeted by owner who was very pleasant and chatty. The accommodation was like a very large, beautifully fitted out hotel room with attached kitchen and shower room (although I would have liked a bath). Everything you need in holiday accommodation was provided. The bed was enormous and the white linen was spotless. Although it was very close to the busy High Street it was peaceful, and the patio area was charming.
A couple of minor problems. The radiator/towel rail leaked oil on the bathroom floor when turned on. We put a pot under the leak and told the owner first thing the next day, expecting it to be fixed when we returned in the evening. It was not fixed then, or at all. The pot remained and we were reluctant to turn the radiator on to dry our towels. On our last night there was a heavy rain storm. The velux skylight started to let water in, which dripped on the side of the bed. We pushed the bed as far as possible out of the way, and eventually the rain stopped. So did the drip.
Given the above, and the lack of a bath, I feel the cost was rather excessive.
Thank you for the positive aspect of your review. Regarding the problems with the radiator, we did explain to the quest that we had ordered and fitted a new element. However we hadn't tightened the fitted enough therefore creating a "very small "leak, which dripped into a very small pot. Sadly we didn't realise that was the problem and so reordered another element which hadn't been delivered in the time the quest was staying. We did apologies for this inconvenient, and thought that as the weather was warm the towels could be dryed by using the supplied airier. As for the skylight that was supposed to be leaking in the rain storm, it was in fact left open on the first catch. Had it have been closed at the time it would not have dripped on the bed. As for the lack of bath, we dont offer or advertise such a facility only a large walk in shower. We are sorry this quest wasn't completely safisified but all in all it was perhaps only the towel rail that was faulty. These things happen in the lifetime of a holiday rental, but we pride ourselves in providing a well kept and well maintained property. We hope all future guest will enjoy the continuing high standards that we pride ourselves in providing. However we are always here to help when things dont go to plan.
