We've really enjoyed the friendly feeling of this well appointed old house and the garden was a delight. V who went to the PO every day for her paper was so pleased with the genuine friendly nature of the local people and loved the fish and chip van visit on Thursday nights - what fun it all was - thank you.

A lovely cottage which we have all thoroughly enjoyed staying in especially Ella who enjoyed her morning walks from the house. We've enjoyed some super walks e.g Seven Sisters and Ditching Beacon. We had a lovely lunch at the Ram at Firle and a great quiz night at The Market, Alfriston. Many thanks to Debbie and Tom.

We had a fantastic stay, probably one of the nicest holiday cottages we/ve stayed in. The gardens are fabulous and a joy to look at and explore. We were also lucky with the weather over Easter and visited most of the recommendations listed. For dog walks we'd suggest Abbots Wood, Sheffield Park and The South Downs Trail. For fresh organic food worth checking out is Middle Farm down the road in West Firle. Food at the Ram Inn was super try the quirky Badgers Tea House in Alfriston.

We have had a lovely stay here this week. We fell in love with the house and its grounds. Leon has loved having all this space to play. We lit the fire every day. The little touches around the house are lovely, we have played games and puzzles many evenings. My mum got married during our stay which wsa lovely, the after venue was in Alfriston which is well worth a visit. Very lovely village. Spent a day at Drusillas which is a very good zoo. finished off with a visit to the beach and fish and chips. We can't wait to come back. Also, renting the hot tub for the week was a great touch.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country. We had a very nice time. Best welcome hamper ever. The shower is brill. Highlights, Batemans, Sheffield Park & Gardens, Eastbourne. I'd give Brighton a miss though apart from the Royal Pavilion which is awesome and the i360 which is pretty cool - better than the London Eye.
