High standards all round. Fabulous rooms delivering on the promise from the website. Beautiful location. Wonderful breakfast. Sandra and Miles could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. We went to Glyndebourne and the property could not be more convenient. Massive standing ovation all round for our hosts and the whole experience. Thank you both so much
Question - What is your criteria for choosing a perfect bed and breakfast? If like me you seek immaculate accommodation, in a serene location, with second to none service... look no further! Little Norlington Barn simply won't disappoint. From the moment we arrived till the time we departed, Sandra and Miles were utterly welcoming, attentive hosts. A simply superb stay... ticks every box!
Over the years we have stayed in at least 9 different hotels or B & Bs when going to Glyndebourne but for the second year running we have been to Little Norlington Barn and now would not consider anywhere else. It is only about two or three miles from the opera - we were back within 20 minutes of the curtain going down. The rooms are first class ,but not fussy ,with everything you need provided and very comfortable beds. It is down an attractive lane and is peaceful and quiet. Excellent breakfast which you can have outside weather permitting. The owners Sandra and Miles and charming and do everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. My only concern in writing this review is that it will encourage too many people to stay there and it might be fully booked when we next want to go.!…
It's the best place to stay for Glyndebourne, you don't have to rush off after the opera but can sit in the grounds and finish your champagne knowing Sandra's delightfully comfortable home is just over the hill (actually walkable if you end up over the limit). And they'll help you get your picnic ready and into your glad rags. Delicious generous breakfasts with locally sourced fresh ingredients, you get the use of this imaginatively converted Sussex barn and the run of the beautiful gardens. Incredible value compared to a hotel room, and most likely cleaner and more luxurious. Plus Sandra and Miles are friendly and fastidious hosts. (We left a little cushion behind & went back to Australia. They kept it for us until we returned 2 years later).
Norlington Barn is in a fantastic location for amongst other things: Glyndebourne; Lewes; the associated Bloomsbury Set buildings (Charleston House and Berwick Church especially) and much more. Add to this the lovely building conversion of the Barn; the view from our room and the peace and quiet of Norlington Lane. Sandra is a great host; knowledgeable of the area, superb breakfasts and owner of adorable staghounds. Do not look any further for a Sussex B&B: this is the one!
