Dairy Byre

Many thanks for an amazing cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, and it was especially nice to return to this lovely place every evening. This was truly our best stay yet in England and will definitely be back very soon.

Janet and Dan

Mouse House

Mouse House is a cosy quiet base for exploring this part of the world. The excellent shower and comfortable bed add to the comfort of this little gem. Stunning countryside and many places of historic interested have made for a busy week. Petwoth house, Arundel Castle, Goodwood, Mary Rose and The Royal Pavilion at Brighton are all well worth a visit. 

Ian and alison

Mouse House

We really enjoyed our stay in the Mouse House and were treated to a display by Red Admiral butterflies every morning basking and flying round the courtyard before feeding on the Buddleia. This is a lovely part of the countryside and a week is just not enough to see it all, so we hope to be back sooner rather than later! Many thanks.

Bulls Box

Wonderful stay in a very well appointed cottage. Lovely touch of home made cake and fresh flowers on arrival. One of the best self catering cottages we have ever stayed in. A true gem in West Sussex.

Wirh, Switzerland

Bulls Box

We could not have asked for more, a very comfortable and clean cottage with all you need, a nice patio to read, relax and dine with good weather. As Swiss people are known to we loved the hikings a lot along the bridleways and South Downs Way with amazing views to the sea.
We also liked the pubs and beer a lot and the friendly people. Thank you so much.

Mouse House

We have had the most wonderful stay in the 'Mouse House'. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and equipped to the highest standard. We have loved the walks alond the bridle path and through the woodland with exeptional views to the Downs. Thank you Val for being a welcoming host who could not have done more to be helpful.
