Great place, really enjoyed exploring area! Hayloft is comfortable and convenient base to explore West Sussex, loved it and would like to visit again.

Excellent place and wanting for nothing. Thanks for the lovely eggs and marmalade and advice on places to go, & we’ve been to some nice places in the country, from Lewes (East) to Bognor (West). Hope to see you again.

Joyce and Dennis, Cleethorpes, United Kingdom

We had a marvellous time here – rain or shine – no matter. The accommodation was lovely. We enjoyed the beautiful views across the fields and the magnificent stars at night! We will never forget taking pictures of the stars at 3am! Thank you so much for the eggs and marmalade – delicious

Lovely weekend break.   We didn’t need to use the car as there was plenty of walking straight outside the door. Very comfortable accommodation. The downstairs room was a bonus for our wet and muddy boots.

Clive and Sue, Eltham, United Kingdom

Fantastic accommodation! We had a great few days despite the weather! Thanks for the cot, highchair and stairgate and especially the extra toys.

Nick and Kirsty, Sale, United Kingdom

Thank you for a wonderful 3 weeks!  Thanks also for all your help - hot water bottle, travel cot, le creuset pan etc …!  We had loads of wonderful walks, and visited some beautiful parts of Sussex.  At 3 months old it was our daughter Phoebe's first holiday, and what a nice one!

Thank you for a warm welcome, had a fantastic time was very relaxing and the surrounding area and views were wonderful, stayed just two nights but will be back in the summer to stay longer and will be recommending to friends.  Was a great way to spend Valentines, very cosy and romantic setting. Thank you!

So nice to spend some time walking, eating and sleeping.  Should be 5 stars!  Thank you so much for a lovely time.  We will be back!

Being Dutch, both children settled in the UK and our first grandchild born, the question was where do we stay?  The Hayloft turned out to be the very right place for us.  Lovely house where we quickly felt at home.  Wonderful countryside and great bird watching.  A priviledged stay that we would like to enjoy again.  Thank you

Livia and Jan, Vorden, Netherlands

It has been a pleasant stay, thank you for the welcoming tea on arrival and for the eggs and marmalade. The cottage was clean, comfortable and warm. The walks were good, even in the cold, and the snow was the cherry, or should I say icing on top! Thank you we know where to stay if we come again.

Brenda and Terry, Stilbaai, South Africa

This place gave me such a haven. I stay in cottages all the time and I was so happy here. Thank you for making me so welcome and at the last minute!

Rebecca, Nottingham, United Kingdom

What better place to get snowed in?! Comfortable and relaxing base following the arrival of our second grand daughter. Thank you so much for helping us to get the car out!

Susanne and Derek, Somerton, United Kingdom

It was grand to be back at the Hayloft and visit with Kirsty and her family. We had a super time exploring new areas. Thank you Kirsty for the eggs & marmalade. Kirsty pays so much attention to detail, not only is the kitchen well appointed and the cottage bright and airy.

Sheldon and Judy, Florida, USA

What a wonderful week! The weather was fantastic, so the short drive to the beach meant the Hayloft was ideally placed. Thank you for the homemade marmalade, it was lovely.   The teabags and milk were a life saver on our arrival! Thank you for providing such a clean and lovely accommodation. The facilities are fabulous too. I loved having a washing machine – essential with a new baby. I will definitely be recommending this place to my friends and family.

Elizabeth and Jon, Stockport, United Kingdom

Our second stay – thank you for another lovely and comfortable week! Perhaps see you next year again!

Sophie & Alvise, Messina, Italy

A lovely relaxing week in an ideal location. The Hayloft is excellent and has stunning views. The fine sunny days were bonus. We give you 9/10 Thank you.

Pete and Barbara, Birchington, United Kingdom

Relaxing, nice walks, lots of deer by Knepp Castle, great views at Devils Dyke, Steyning and Lewes worth the visit. The Hayloft was just what we were looking for. Thanks

Graham and Enid, Mudeford, United Kingdom

After a very busy week in London I think the Hayloft was the perfect way for Carol and I to ease back into a more rural lifestyle that we are used to in Canada. I had almost forgotten how wonderful the British countryside is. The surrounding oak trees are an absolute joy! Thank you.

John and Carol, Nova Scotia, Canada

We came here to unwind, visit ‘The Lanes’ to buy a ring and get engaged..we achieved all three. The Hayloft was the perfect venue and in the perfect location, it will live in our memories forever. 

Adrian and Chrissie, Whitstable, United Kingdom

Came to unwind, catch up on some sleep, not cook, cycle, walk and eat pub meals (would recommend the Crown). The Hayloft was able to provide all of the above. Thank you.

James and George, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

Thank you we have really enjoyed our stay. The Hayloft is comfortable and ideal for the two of us. Lovely walks, lots of wildlife to watch. Enjoyed seeing the deer each evening.

David and Karen, Honiton, United Kingdom

Another wonderful relaxing stay on this our second visit. Lots of great walks and many memorable encounters with all sorts of classic British wildlife including foxes, fox cubs, deer, stoats and adders. Thank you for the eggs and marmalade but especially for the superb high standard of accommodation. Hope we will return again soon!

Phil and Lynne, Gwnedd, Wales

Thank you very much for the welcome pack, it was a good start to our break in The Hayloft. It’s a lovely, clean and well equipped place in a peaceful setting. Thanks for the weather report and information on places to visit too – it helped us plan our tour of the local area. Our one year old boy loved playing in the garden too!

Susan and Trevor, Southampton, United Kingdom

After selling our house this was the perfect way to unwind and relax whilst enjoying the English countryside before emigrating to Australia. The Hayloft had everything we needed. Thank you.
