I stayed at Moonlight Cottage whilst walking along the South Downs Way, it was convenient as it was only a relatively short detour from the route. We arrived having been given good directions from the path by Sue. Walking into the front garden we knocked and hearing no reply walked around to the back door to find a note directing...

Hello Well an almost identical review to the previous one from Martin. Hardly surprising as you travelled with him. I will make similar comments in reply. Thank you for your review. Whilst I try not to take comments personally, it is very hard not to. As always I find it disappointing that you couldn't share your views and obvious unhappiness...

We arrived to confusing signage telling us to go round the back, then from the back to go over the road to another part of their accommodation and then we were barked at by the dogs for a while until our host arrived. Another couple who arrived later were knocking on the door and we had to tell them where...

Hello Martin, Thank you for your review. Whilst I try not to take comments personally, it is very hard not to. As always I find it disappointing that you couldn't share your views and obvious unhappiness with our home/b&b to my face and when I could have offered you alternative rooms if you were unhappy with those allocated. In fact...

A friend and I cycled the South Downs Way last week and stayed in this B&B on our first night. It is conveniently situated if you're doing the route in three days and is on a km or so north of the track. There are several rooms that can be booked and there is a residents' lounge which is a...

Situation close to the South Downs Way and within easy reach of Goodwood. Sue and Steve are excellent hosts going above and beyond to help guests. Love the breakfasts. The rooms are beautifully presented and the additional accommodation in the Malthouse opposite a delightful period house. Sitting in the tearoom window is great for 'petrol heads' to spot cars heading...

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The 'roadside' seating is always popular, especially during Goodwood events!

Really surprised at all the 4 and 5 star ratings and raving reviews about this B&B. It was Ok, nothing wrong with it, but rather average, and certainly overpriced for what was on offer compared to other places we have stayed at. There was no shampoo in the bathroom for instance, just a bottle of non-descript body wash. The breakfast...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are, however, a little perplexed by the review and comments you make which have caused us to question if you might have muddled our b&b with another one you stayed in during your walk along the South Downs Way. The reason for this is that as you point out...

The Moonlight Cottage is an excellent friendly place to stay after a long walk on the Downs. We enjoyed the superb breakfast; the muesli and fruit options were especially generous. Room very comfortable with free wi-fi. Super shower in the shared bathroom. Quiet at night. Gorgeous scenery all around.

Stayed here whilst doing the South Downs way with some friends. We had the twin en-suite room in the Malthouse which was an amazing old building. Rooms were clean and comfortable with free wifi which worked well. The shower in our room was probably the best power shower I'd experienced, though this may have been fatigue induced after walking all...

If you are looking for somewhere a little different, the Moonlight Cottage, or its sister b& b, The Malthouse (just across the road) may be for you. The owners have a great eye so each room is charmingly (and differently ) decorated and very comfortable, as are the guest sitting rooms. Great breakfast too, and there is a nice little...
