The only thing I found a little difficult was having to decide what I wanted for breakfast, the next morning, the day before. Katie and Paul were very helpful regarding places to visit, or eat, along with directions. A very nice couple. Teddy, their dog, was an absolute pleasure.

Tips:

The food at The Cricketers, locally, was excellent. Alfriston is well worth a visit, as is Birling Gap. Lewis is a lovely town.

Katie and Paul are the most wonderful hosts, I could not have been made to feel more welcome and cared for. Thank you.

Tips:

So much to see and do in this area. Absolutely beautiful walks and in addition to Glyndebourne Opera, there is a high concentration of cultural establishments and gardens. Farleys Farm (Home of the Surrealists) being a particular favourite plus Monks House and Charleston. Berwick Church, Firle Church and Glynde Church with its wonderful Wildflower church yard project. Lovely tea room at the Post Office at Glynde. Cuckmere Haven and all of the surrounding natural beauty Spots including the Long Man of Wilmington. The Cricketer's at Berwick, The Ram at Firle are both excellent pubs. Lewes is the nearby County Town and a brilliant place to visit too.

Katie and Paul were extremely lovely and helpful. They do this B& B with all their heart, we also loved Teddy, the little dog. They were easygoing, helpful, brought us tea after a long day, it was just lovely. We stayed for one week and it felt every day a little bit like coming home.

Tips:

If you don't want to got far eat in the Berwick Inn, where they have very friendly staff and nice food. There is not a huge menu but nice and good food. Visiting Alfriston (Clergy House) or the seven sisters or the seafront. You can get anywhere. Don't miss to go at the farmers market.

Katie and Paul could not have been more welcoming and they went to great efforts to make our stay in their lovely home a pleasant one. (We also got a warm welcome from their gorgeous dog Teddy!). They also recommended a great walk and kindly lent us walk book and map.

Tips:

The main purpose of our visit was a trip to Glyndebourne but we also enjoyed a couple of great local walks (one from Firle up to Firle beacon and another from Berwick to Alciston). We did the guided tour of Charleston farmhouse which was fascinating.

Breakfast- perfect. I could choose my time. Great choice of items as well as fresh real coffee, juice etc. Owners were brilliant in every way. I've stayed twice now and will stay again if working in that area.

Tips:

Berwick Railway station is 200m up the road as is The Berwick Inn which serves great food and lovely beer. Highly recommended. It's also only 3 miles from Bede's School should you need a place to stay while visiting there.

Katie & Paul were so friendly and helpful. Wonderful hosts. The only reason that I would not recommend this B & B to friends is the lack of an en-suite. Had the place been full we would have disliked sharing the bathroom with others.

Take the train into Lewes. Interesting place to walk around. Also take an early morning walk around the reservoir. Really beautiful.

Dear Jeff Thank you for your review. It is our practice to only fill both the upstairs rooms if guests know one another and are happy to share the private bathroom. That is why we declined other requests during your stay. Our booking engine makes it clear that the Woodland View double room has private facilities not shared with us . The downstairs room is ensuite but was taken by your friends on this occasion. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

This B&B is EXCELLENT in every respect. First, it is within 200m of Berwick railway station, and same distance from The Berwick Arms which served me a brilliant evening meal. Secondly, the owner is extremely friendly and I felt at home from the minute I arrived. She was also great on communication when I emailed to say I was a vegetarian - and replied immediately. Thirdly, my room was accommodating in every way and as clean as a new pin! Tea & coffee facility. Gorgeous hot shower (with lovely choice of big bottles of shampoo - I chose strawberry). Super fast Wifi was great for the work I was doing. TV and desk for working. Curtains AND blind in case I wanted it pitch dark. Double glazed windows. Comfy bed with luxury pillows. Bedside lights that dim if needed. Finally, breakfast! I was able to choose in advance and also choose time of serving. THe meal was perfect, with lovely extras such as caffetiere coffee (decaf as requested), lots of toast, local farm-made marmalade with proceeds going to an African school charity. I am working in the area twice next year and will not consider looking anywhere else for somewhere to stay. PERFECT and THANK YOU for a lovely stay.

Tips:

The B&B is 200m from lovely pub (food & beer top quality - it is also a coffee shop & stores in the day). The pub is right opposite Berwick Railway station on the line from Lewes to Orr.

Our room (English Rose-twin en suite room) was situated on the streetside. Cars were heard passing by (most of the time) when window is open. It's a great place for dog-lovers. Katie was a lovely host who provided us with delicious breakfast and many cups of tea. She also gave us a lot of information about the area and was very helpfull when we needed a place to eat on the night of arrival.

Tips:

Berwick-Inn: good place to eat! In the nabourhood of Amarisa! The reservoir: good walking. Also in the nabourhood. Berwick-Church: lovely little church with paintings from the Bloombury group. You can walk a lot through the lovely glowing meadows to other villages

It was literally home from home. We were made very welcome and felt immediately at ease. We had a great two nights' sleep on such comfortable beds. Teddy dog enjoyed Martyn's socks.

Tips:

We went to both local pubs and enjoyed the meals. The Plough perhaps had the edge but we were hungry and grateful for the meal at the Berwick Arms. The area is great for walking - the South Downs have incomparable views. We came specifically for Airbourne and were able to travel in and out of Eastbourne on public transport.

The owners were very kind and helpfull. They have a friendly, enthousiastic dog. Great English breakfast. Although according to the legal definition for Bed and Breakfast 'a private bathroom' (as mentioned at the booking site) is one that is not shared with the owners, it suggests that as a renter you are the only user of it, which is not the case at Amarisa.

Tips:

I recommend The Plough, a pub / restaurant just a few miles from Amarisa. There are excellent walks in the environment, for instance the one to the Seven Sisters. Having a glass of wine with the owners is also pleasant.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. It was extremely comfortable and our hosts Katie and Paul very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent for visiting numerous sites of interest in the area (eg Charleston Farmhouse, Farley Farmhouse, Monk's House, Alfriston Clergy House etc). In addition it is an easy short walk to the station to catch the train to Brighton (it was Katie's suggestion we do this - we'd intended driving, but train so much easier). Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. We thoroughly recommend Amarisa and would happily return.

As we were in the area to go to Glyndebourne our stay was very short, but Katie gave us some helpful hints on local sights and places which we could visit before our return home. Altogether a very pleasant stay.

Perfect for the stay we needed. Not the sort of area we would go for in other circumstances. It would be nice to have some milk in the room to have a late cup of tea. Having said that, I'm sure that if we had remembered to ask, it would have been there! Lovely garden flowers. Thank you for the friendly welcome.

Sorry about the milk. I normally put it in the room but as you were going to be late back and up early I didn't do so - apologies. It was lovely to have you visit but as it was so short you had no time to appreciate the beautiful area in which we live!

Lovely small B&B in a private house. The rooms are comfortable and tidy. The breakfast is fresh and plenty. We felt completely at home here.

Tips:

The "7 Sisters" (chalk cliffs) are about 20 minutes away by car. Not to mention, that you can reach Brighton easily.

Good local pub and very convenient for a rail or car journey to Lewes and Brighton. Excellent base for anyone wanting to walk or tour the South Downs and local Sussex countryside.

Katie and Paul were very welcoming. We had the double room overlooking their excellent garden. We were attending a wedding reception at the excellent Sussex Ox pub nearby and Katie gave us a lift to the pub so we wouldn't have to drive. We had Katie and Pauls excellent full English Breakfast which we ate in their very large conservatory overlooking squirrels, woodpeckers and blue tits in their wonderful garden, where they grow their own tomatoes and other veg. The jams served with breakfast were excellent: fig; strawberry; and Katie's own homemade seville marmalade which was quit simply the best marmalade I have ever had. An excellent B&B with excellent hosts.

Tips:

Sussex Ox pub, Alfriston, cuckmere Valley walks, Friston forest bike rides, drusillas zoo Litlington tea rooms.

Location is somewhat subjective. We consider that we are very well located for walkers with easy access to the South Downs Way, Vanguard Way and Wealden Way. There are also many interesting places to visit nearby e.g. Michelham Priory, Charleston.

A very hospitable welcome and a comfortable stay

Tips:

If the main road is blocked you can get to Glyndebourne almost as quickly by a "back road" route. The Berwick Arms did us a good lunch, in a pleasant garden - worth a look

We both had a lovely stay at Amarisa over the bank holiday weekend. Katie and her husband are wonderful hosts. We felt very welcome. Our room was very comfortable. Katie made sure we had everything we needed, including gluten free / diary free options for breakfast, for which we were very grateful. They were also very kind to offer us a lift to some of the local attractions. Thank you so much for a fantastic first stay in South Downs. Highly recommended :) Monika

Tips:

Amarisa is located in a quiet village (Berwick) very near to Alfriston and with easy access to South Downs. Berwck has a train station with good connections to Brighton. It was very easy to get to by train from London Victoria with one change in Brighton. We did lots of great walks and made it to Charleston Farmhouse (near Firle), where the Bloomsbury Group used to live. Glyndebourne and Monk's House near Lewes are also nearby. Lots to do. Wish we could have stayed longer :) Monika

This was the second time that I have stayed at the Amarisa, which is well furnished and very comfortable. The household is peaceful and quiet with a conservatory and beautiful garden. While Katie works tirelessly to keep Amarisa spotlessly clean, Paul works hard in the garden during the spring and summer to ensure that the Amarisa has as much kerb-appeal as possible. Katie & Paul Ely do their best to be as accommodating as possible and really looked after me during my stay. Breakfasts were cooked to perfection - Paul is very precise with his cooking times. Indeed, in the unlikely event of disquiet, Paul & Katie would rather cook a breakfast again to the exact requirement rather than have a guest leave their table dissatisfied. Bird feeder stations in the rear garden attract a variety of birds from the woodland behind Amarisa. The visiting wildlife can be watched whilst eating breakfast. Throughout my stay free, reliable and strong Wifi and fast internet was available – of which I made extensive use when planning where to visit the next day. Overall I found Katie & Paul to be warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts and would have no hesitation in staying at the Amarisa a third time.

Tips:

For eating, the better pubs that I found in the vicinity of the Amarisa are The Plough at Upper Dicker, the Barley Mow at Selmeston and the Rose Cottage Inn at Alciston. Unfortunately that may not be saying much as none of the aforementioned establishments really made an impression during my stay. Will look further afield next time I visit.

We stayed here whilst down for the Brighton Marathon 2016. Katie and Paul gave us a warm welcome and couldn't do enough for us during our stay with them. A very comfortable & clean bedroom with clean & adequate bathroom. A Very well organised B&B - and they were happy to book us a table at the local pub (3min walk away), tell us about local walks in the area (some long distance trails), we were given a local train timetable (2min walk from station) and even told which time train to take to get to Brighton in time for the start of the marathon. Katie & Paul also arranged a super early breakfast for us on Sunday morning which was very well appreciated (especially being on a Sunday). We would definitely go back - the scenery is stunning and would love to explore more of the surrounding area.
