"Lovely stay, perfect for four adults and 1 teenager looking for a more relaxing way to see in the New Year. Location is great for Pooh Sticks and the coast. Attention to detail is amazing, lovely facilities and the ducks are great ! Obviously the highlight of the trip was meeting Digby."

New Year 2018

"Mission : A couple of days away in half-term to get away with the boys – accomplished. A very well furnished and appointed cottage to chill out in. Great to go swimming in October, especially by night. The cake and wine were most welcome on arrival. Thanks for a great stay."

"We had a lovely time here, The house is wonderful and provided everything. We loved the squirrels and the rabbits. The White Hart was a lovely pub ; we enjoyed the food very much. Tea in Pooh Corner was nice and Hever Castle was beautiful. Next time is Brighton on our list because we are definitely coming back."

De Vries family- August 2017

"We arrived to a most warm welcome from Jane and Mike with a lovely gesture of fresh home baked cake. The pool provided us with a number of lovely days to relax with our family in complete privacy. We are sad to be leaving but have many very happy memories of quality family time at Heath Retreat and hope to return again at some stage."

Bahl Family - April 2017

"Jane & Mike made us very welcome in this wonderful holiday cottage. The house and grounds are simply gorgeous and they were very generous in letting us use the pool whenever we wanted. We had 30 degree weather for quite a few days and it was simply glorious. Thank you for accommodating us and being so helpful with freezer space, washing machine use etc! The kids had an amazing time and we have had a very relaxing holiday. All the best!"

23rd August 2016 - Michael & Rita

"Mike & Jane have made this the perfect vacation spot. We were thoroughly spoilt from the thick fluffy towels, to the comfortable beds and bedding, not to mention all the mod cons and bathrooms. So much attention to detail was put into this cottage even the ducks & teddy's and the fresh flowers as well as books and games. The pool was fantastic, the table tennis was great fun. Unfortunately we didn't get to play tennis this time although I'm sure we will come back. Mike & Jane were on hand to answer any queries & even tell us about the area. The children all agreed that this was the best holiday ever! Thank you for everything."

18th August 2016 - Jeff & Judy

"Dear Mike & Jane, Thank you so much for opening your property up to us. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Whether it was the cosy duvets, the perfectly heated swimming pool, the extremely bouncy tennis court or the amazing kitchen appliances - we have enjoyed every minute. It certainly wasn't easy for us to find a place and thankfully we hit the jack pot down here in Sussex. Thank for being open to all our inquiries. All the best."

5th August 2016 - The Higginson Family

"We would like to thank Mike and Jane for making us all feel so welcome. What a lovely cottage! We've enjoyed swimming, tennis, eating at the local pub and played on one of the nearby golf courses. The pool has been a joy, remaining at 30 degrees even when the weather wasn't great, we've still been able to make good fun and enjoy the facilities. Thank you, we wish you all the very best."

1st August 2016 - The Thornby's

"We were in desperate need for a holiday and we were delighted to find this cottage. It had everything we look for in a cottage (pool, wifi, tennis). The hosts, Mike and Jane, were extremely attentive and upon arrival there was milk, cookies and eggs waiting for us. Mike and Jane were very helpful and provided everything we needed. We enjoyed taking advantage of the pool (going in twice a day), as well as the tennis and ping pong. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return, Thank you."

28th July 2016 - The Grewal Family

"We were having a difficult time finding the right holiday home for my family and I, luckily we found this lovely cottage with brilliant facilities. The kids very much enjoyed taking advantage of the swimming pool and outdoors, while my wife and I were more than happy relaxing and enjoying the stunning views. The moment we arrived Mike and Jane welcomed us into there home, they were incredible hosts and were very helpful when we asked for anything. We very much enjoyed our stay here, and would be very happy to return once again. Thank you - much appreciated!"
