Alison was very welcoming and provided useful information about Lewes and the surrounding area. We would happily recommend this accommodation. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

The perfect location for visiting our family. It had a lovely relaxing atmosphere, and Alison and Vladimir made us feel very welcome. We will definitely come back.

Tips:

‘Trading Post’ for coffee. ‘Bill’s’ for casual meals. ‘The Rights of Man’ for something more special. ‘The Needlemakers’ for buying a gift that is different! All of these places are within walking distance.

4th July 2019:

On day 1, other guests staying at Garden Cottage allowed us to go for breakfast first due to an early engagement that day. We thought there was some friction in the kitchen whilst breakfast was being prepared and the scrambled eggs were somewhat underdone. In return we switched to have a late breakfast the following day as a compromise - although we then ended up rushing up the motorway to catch a train. There's a notice in the room which says if you'd like sausages, mushrooms or tomatoes "please ask!" - but when asked, these weren't available (except if we were happy with the sausages being defrosted), and there was an additional charge too - which we found hard to believe for tomatoes and mushrooms, particularly when we were paying £50/person/night. It would be have been nicer if we'd been told unfortunately they aren't available today, but I'll happily give you an extra portion of bacon (I.e. more customer focused). The fresh fruit and yoghurt for breakfast was delicious.

Tips:

We enjoyed Bill's restaurant by the river.

Your home is lovely. Bedrooms are large, peaceful, charming, clean, comfort so it was really perfect for us. we all slept very well Very nice breakfast. And you are very welcoming and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

Tips:

Nice shops around, nice food at Bill's. I think it is the name of the restaurant. We came for a training in Wild perfumery at AS APOTHECARY in Lewes. The public garden is beautiful. Antiques shops. It was wonderful and this little town is just so nice.

I wasn't there as a tourist but Lewes is fascinating to walk round, back and forth in history via the different types of architecture.

Lovely comfortable room with good beds, excellent linen and en-suite bathroom. We had a really good nights sleep! Breakfast was delightful and set us up for the day. We met our hosts who were charming and very welcoming. Will definitely visit again. Thank you very much to Alison and Vlad.

Tips:

Parking is a little tricky if coming by car but excellent train and bus services in walking distance from cottage. We were only there for a night but the town has much to explore, antiques, good food and interesting shops.

Compact with everything you need. Warm, clean and well decorated.

Tips:

Even in winter Lewes is a buzzing, picturesque, historical town with lots of independent shops, restaurants and antique stores as well as some of the usual chains. The castle sets the scene. 17 minuets on the train to Brighton, £5 return, regular trains about every ten minuets.

Very quiet but convenient location, surrounded by greenery but just a few minutes from Lewes high street. Friendly welcome, and Alison is very helpful about places to visit and other tips. Excellent scrambled eggs! Decoration in bedroom is a little bit tired but very clean, and very comfortable bed.

Tips:

Le Magasin is an excellent local bistro. We did a lovely coastal walk from Seaford with views of Seven Sisters (thank you to Alison for recommendation!), and visited Berwick Church for Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant paintings, and Virginia Woolf's home at Rodmell. Lewes itself is a lovely town with plenty to see there.
