“Excellent accommodation in a spectacular area”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The house was wonderful. Very oldy wordly with fantastic views of the Downs from most of the rooms. It's a little remote but you can just walk out of the house along the path to Plumpton for the train (about a mile) or straight up on to the Downs. Very quiet area. Lovely big garden. All the rooms were quaintly decorated. Loads of games in the cupboards in the lounge and nice big table we could all sit around.
We got a taxi in to Ditchling one evening - cost about £15 return and had a lovely meal at the White Horse pub.
The owner, Eve was very helpful throughout and even left us some cake on arrival.
All in all, this is a great place to stay if you like peace and quiet and brilliant views. I would recommend it to anyone.

“Perfect Location, Lovely House !”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely cottage in Ditchling with my husband and 4 children. The location of this cottage is just stunning ! Amazing views of The South Downs and lots and lots of beautiful walks on your doorstep. The cottage is just lovely, really perfect. Eve is the lovely owner and she was so kind to us, she came to meet us and explained the central heating, washing machine etc, left a fire ready to light and some local wine and yummy biscuits and tea to start us off. I recommend this cottage highly and only wish I could have stayed longer !
