Old Whyly

East Hoathly, Sussex
Bed & Breakfast

All the luxuries that make a B&B very special - wonderful food, smart rooms and a garden replete with pool, orchard, tennis and lake. Bliss


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Breakfast in a light-filled, chinoiserie dining room – there’s an effortless elegance to this manor house, once home to one of King Charles’s Cavaliers. Bedrooms are atmospheric, one in French style. The treats continue outside with a beautiful flower garden annually replenished with 5,000 tulips, a lake and orchard, a swimming pool and a tennis court – fabulous. Dine under the pergola in summer: food is a passion and Sarah’s menus are adventurous with a modern slant. Glyndebourne is close so make a party of it and take a divine ‘pink’ hamper, with blankets or a table and chairs included. Sheer bliss.

Lovely house & setting & very welcoming atmosphere. Sarah is a wonderful host & cook. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our bedroom was beautifully furnished & the large bed was very comfortable. We had a bijou en suite bathroom with a great shower. The breakfast was delicious & it felt as though nothing was too much trouble. The gardens are stunning. Puzzle Sarah's dog is a delight & very friendly and help make the lovely house into a real home.
