A beautiful location and a lovely property! We loved our short stay here, it is perfect for a getaway. The hosts were lovely, accommodating and checked in to make sure we were all settled etc. There are some great rural walks nearby that were perfect for our dog too (a bit muddy - but the property provides an outdoor hose for such situations!) and Read morea great local pub - The Fox Inn, which had good food and a nice atmosphere, also very dog friendly.

We really enjoyed our holiday. The apartment was great for 2 people and a dog. It was good to be so close to nature e.g. ducks, moorhens, heron, deer, not to forget the alpacas. The owner was quick to respond to our questions. Whilst the property is on the Gatwick flight line we would not hesitate to book again. A real plus for us was the use of thRead moree pool during the September heatwave. Hide

We had a wonderful holiday. The excellent location makes it easy to travel to places of interest. The apartment was clean and felt cosy. It was lovely sitting at the Juliette balcony which overlooks the pond, very peaceful after a busy day.

Gorgeous apartment, stunning views of the 'Sussex' countryside. Pool area is very well equipped, sadly, too cold, end of September, to really use it, tried it just the once but too chilly. The Hosts aren't really there, so you can come and go, as you please. In glorious isolation, too, just the sounds of passenger planes, overhead, as it is on the Read more'Gatwick' flightline, but it's not really an issue. Hide
