Well equiped and good value.
The cottage (which is really a bungalow) is very well located for exploring East Sussex attractions such as Charleston Farmhouse, the South Downs Way, Herstmonceux etc. It' is in a small development of about 30 similar bungalows which was a surprise at first but it actually works very well. There is a central laundry and information point. The grounds of the manor house are freely available with a fine lake. The property is well equiped and comfortable and the price is reasonable. Dogs have to be on leads in the estate but there is a good field adjacent for a run.
Thank you so much for your comments and for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy.
We had a nice an quiet week. Perfect place to go on tour in Sussex and especially the coast.
Thank you for the kind review and leaving the cottage in the condition you found it.
Very quiet place to stay
Generally all good. However bed linen needs renewing particularly duvets and pillows. One of the beds is very soft and could do with being replaced.
Cuckoo cottage home from home
We recently spent 4 days (5 nights) at this lovely cottage. It’s quiet, scenic location could not be bettered and inside there is everything you want for a comfortable stay. It really was home from home.
Lovely place so peaceful and relaxing. The owners are fab even had a call from Gordon asking if we had arrived safely! Felt like a home from home.
Made arrangements well in advance and the owner was so great to deal with. Arrived to find a lovely little cottage in a nice quiet area not far from Polegate. The place was clean and well cared for. We only had one small issue and the owner's son fixed it for us immediately. Thanks Gordon, for the great place to stay. A lovely cottage for a small family. Hope to come back to visit again.
