The Pilstyes is a Grade II listed village house situated in the north end of Lindfield High Street close to all the village amenities, including 5 pubs and many local shops within easy walking distance. It’s a great place to do nothing and unwind, walk in the countryside, visit Brighton, or go to London to a show. National Trust properties and gardens abound in the area and the Bluebell Railway is only 10 minutes away.

Fab place to stay and a great couple. Roy and Carol were warm, friendly, and informative. Roy went above and beyond in helping me fit stuff in the car. Carol had great anecdotes and a very welcoming manner. Roy and Carol are a credit to the B & B business
