Good Hotel Guide Review

The ‘wonderful atmosphere’ makes this ‘delightful’ B&B popular with visitors to nearby Glyndebourne. ‘Warm hosts’ Rowena and Barry Gittoes have filled their Grade II listed Georgian former rectory with interesting prints and comfortable spots to relax in. Well-appointed bedrooms have ‘real coffee’ and Fairtrade teas; a DVD library provides entertainment for guests looking for a quiet night in. Breakfast in bed or in the spacious dining room: an ‘excellent spread’ includes fresh fruit, cereals, honey from local bees; home-grown salads; smoked salmon from a fishery half an hour away. Explore the ‘well-kept’ sub-tropical gardens before striking out to visit beaches nearby. Evening suppers and picnic hampers can be arranged. 5 miles E of Hailsham.
