"We have never been to East Sussex before. We realy enjoyed ourselves. Could not do all the things we would have liked. But that leaves us a return visit. Many Thanks. Ron and Clare Baker from DEVON. XXXXXX"


"A very well appointed cottage with good quality furniture and equipment. We had a very pleasant week here in June; very peaceful and comfortable. A good location for visiting many of the National Trust and other sites in Sussex. If you enjoy good food then the Curlew restaurant (about 5 miles North) is worth a visit."

Peter & Carolyn Lambert- June
