Thoroughly enjoyed our escape from COVID mundanity to this magnificent Elizabethan manor. Inevitably COVID guidelines meant changes to usual arrangements but Sally was very upfront about this before we booked. Our suite of historic rooms and cosy log fire was like nothing we have stayed in before. We also enjoyed a tasting of Charles Palmer wines from the very knowledgeable Chantal. We will definitely visit again

I came here with my boyfriend to replace our trip to Italy and it was everything I wanted and needed! The location is absolutely incredible and the owner was so accommodating, helping us with walking/cycling routes and filling our fridge with breakfast goodies. Would definitely come here again for a peaceful, active country getaway! I recommend renting a bike from Rye ☺️

I felt I had to write this review in contrast to one of the previous reviewers criticisms . As a regular visitor .We have Just had a marvellous Stay in our favourite Bed and breakfast in the south , I’m writing to support the wonderful hostess Sally , still doing amazing things in these difficult times, I Noted a couple of unusually grumpy reviews , I was made aware before I booked ,that due to covid ,Sally has had to separate the house for safety reasons, and ,now sadly, is only able to supply a basic breakfast in your own individual dining area ,instead the normal slap up full English ,due to having to initiate a one way one system in this iconic medieval Manor House. I felt I had to say something as Sally made me aware on arrival , how upset she was by her previous guest ,having looked at his review (dock brief) One point about his stay,what he left out was, he had informed Sally ,that, as he had already contracted covid ,(so basically ,he was so selfish and disinterested in other guests he wanted his breakfast whatever the cost to other guests ) he couldn’t understand what’s the problem was over breakfast ,even though he was pre warned on booking the situation , with regard to his beef On pricing for the room , we are all getting more available private space , in my case and mr grumpy’s case , both guests ,as opposed to three available rooms pre covid , we now have an extra lounge ,dining area and two double rooms extra, within the price , a bargain !

We originally stayed at Wickham Manor. B&B after personal 5star recommendation. It was better than expected. This time it was our second stay and we preferred the new arrangements. We hope to come back. If you like four posters Inglenook fire places in a beautiful 16C Manor with plenty of personal space you don't need to look anywhere else Dr. Fossil

We stayed here 4 nights. First it must be said that this is a beautiful manor house of real charm. The house itself is Tudor and our bedroom (called Tudor) was magnificent, particularly the huge and very comfortable bed. The house is set amidst gardens, pasture and vineyards just outside Winchelsea. The approach, down a tree-lined lane and through a medieval town gate is really superb. The views all round are wonderful. You couldn’t ask for a more serene and lovely location. Now the Gripe. You have to pay in full before arrival. The website says £115 a night “including full English breakfast”. The various agencies quote £110 a night. We were charged £540 for our 4 nights - that’s £135 a night. No explanation given. But worse was the absence of breakfast - I think put down to COVID - although I can’t really see why a virus should prevent breakfast from being served, hot or cold. We’ve stayed in other places recently where suitable precautions have been taken and magnificent breakfasts supplied. Our host advised when we booked that cooked breakfast was not being provided. Instead she said that the house was divided into suites and that we would have our own dining room where we could eat. She said that she would be providing bread, cereals, butter, jam and milk. I somehow imagined a groaning smorgasbord of good farm produce - a nice rustic loaf, homemade jams, and maybe some fruit, fruit juice, yoghurt, muesli, eggs, cheese and ham... all standard fare in a luxury B & B. When we arrived we found that a fridge and a microwave had been installed in the dining room. Inside was “breakfast”: a small sliced Warburton’s white loaf (already on its Best Before Date). There were some pats of butter and a pint of milk. On the side were some miniature pots of jam and a few sachets of instant coffee and tea bags. Oh, and a couple of biscuits. And that was it. I exaggerate not. When I enquired about the cereals our host went and fetched a single portion box of rice crispies - displaying a date of manufacture of October 2019. Not out of date, but just signalling that they hadn’t been bought for our benefit. Over the rest of our stay we were never offered anything else, nor were we asked how we were getting on with our mean little loaf and cereal packet. There were no kitchen facilities, so even had we bought our own food, there was nowhere to cook it, save the microwave - not a very useful tool for breakfast, and all the less so when you have no pots or clingfilm to work with. Our host did kindly leave a bottle of Fairy Liquid in the bathroom - so that we could at least wash up our crockery in the bathroom sink. So what it comes down to is this: We paid £20 a night over the advertised rate, didn’t get any breakfast, and instead were provided with the cheapest little loaf available, and a single portion of Rice Krispies. This was breakfast for two adults for 4 days! We were obliged to drive off to a local café for our breakfast each day and were left feeling like we had been rather badly fleeced and neglected. Tragic really, as you ought to come away from a beautiful place like this feeling joyful and content.
