Nice place for a quiet seaside holiday. Found it comfortable for the 2 of us. Plenty to do for outdoor types! Bonus of a mature wildlife garden outback on an uphill slope with different places to sit. Nice open views out the front where you can watch out towards the sea, the train and the ferries going into Newhaven from the little sun room.
