Cosy farm cottage in pleasant countryside setting.
We offer a comfortable, informal and friendly B&B in a quiet, rural position in a no-through country lane surrounded by open pastureland. The cottage with wood-burning stove, is just one mile from Halisham and is open all year. Our full english breakfast includes our own and locally sourced produce. We belong to the Sussex Breakfast initiative helping farmers keep Sussex beautiful and the rural economy thriving. Special diets are catered for and a refridgerator in the dining room is provided for the use of our guests.

Hailsham has a charming old cinema restored in recent years, while Eastbourne, 8 miles, boasts two excellent theatres, a cinema complex, museums and a wonderful promenade complete with pier and live band-stand where a nostalgic evening can be enjoyed.
