Garden-lovers will be happy here. Admire brimming borders and pots of colourful flowers, choose a sunny place to sit. Margaret gives you tea and homemade cake on arrival, either on the terrace in fine weather or next to the fire in the sitting room.
Ground-floor bedrooms are cosy and quiet. Breakfast is in the dining room overlooking the garden – fresh baked bread, home-grown fruit, homemade muesli and yogurt, and locally sourced eggs and bacon.
Margaret is a mine of knowledge about this beautiful corner of East Sussex. Set out on walks, visit National Trust houses and gardens. Glyndebourne is only 10 minutes’ drive away, Lewes 20 minutes, and you can stroll to the village pub, The Six Bells, for supper.
