Call us to find out more or read what a recent guest had to say,
“5 of us stayed this weekend and couldn't have had a more relaxing and spoiling time. The place is simply and beautifully decorated with an understated style, super comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Nina the owner and Aimee the manager are incredibly hospitable and couldn't have done more for us - recommending walks, where to eat and preparing two incredible suppers which they laid out in our own private room, candlelit and with a delicious array of wines to choose from. This is no ordinary B&B but a proper retreat, a home away from home. We've already booked again for next year”.

This was our second stay here with the very wonderful Nina and her superb staff. As before, we had come down to East Sussex to go to Glyndebourne with friends and we feel so lucky to have happened upon one of the most charming places in England.
The food was superb - we loved the special dinner Nina's chefs made for us on the Thursday and the picnic on Friday was spectacular, all beautifully presented full of perfect little details from the napkins adorned with sprigs of rosemary, the little menu scroll and so many more things.
Our rooms were delightful, and the kindness and helpfulness of all the staff must deserve a special mention. Overall the vibe was of a relaxed and fun place to stay where our hosts could not do enough for us. We will be back!

A wonderful stay at charming little farm house in a gorgeous location. The host was lovely and ensured we had everything we needed, offering helpful local advice. The room was tidy, cosy, tasteful and quiet - exactly what was needed after a long day walking. The breakfast was good, the coffee (which is roasted on location) was even better. This should be anyone's number one choice in an area which isn't short on bnbs for those who are after a luxurious and relaxing stay. Highly recommended.

In a marvellous position near the Cuckmere River, with very friendly and caring staff, it’s a welcoming and beautiful place where to spend a weekend. I loved the attention to the details, from fresh flowers to the interiors tastefully decorated. Looking forward to go back!
