"A truly special place"

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 from Brussels 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 a charming farmhouse”

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.

"Perfect spot"

Spent two very happy, comfy nights at Saltmarsh earlier this week. One could not find a better place to prepare for and then recover from lengthy walks down the Sussex coast. Lovely rooms, comfy beds, (slept in the room someone complained of noise from below stairs. I was completely unaffected). Nina the owner was amazingly attentive helping me make the most of my stay in every way. Nic the resident artist was excellent company as well as very helpful with great advice. The breakfasts are huge and delicious and the staff at the cafe very professional and looked after me very well. Excellent pubs reached by lovely walks all well described by Nina. Highly recommended. Plenty to do all within easy walking distance.
