“Excellent Hideaway”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a clean and comfortable cottage with everything one could need, including a most generous welcome package. There is a pretty, secluded patio outside the kitchen door for some sunshine and a relaxing drink. Owners most helpful but not in any way intrusive. Altogether, a very pleasant stay at Lychgate Cottage.

“Boutique hotel/guest house? No - go for the best - Lychgate Cottage!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Easy enough to find tucked away along a quiet road just a few hundred yards from Henfield High Street.
Greeted by the owner who was simply delightful who gave us a guided tour letting us know all the salient facts. Extremely helpful and a lovely touch as a lot of times you are left to find things out for yourself.We were overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the owners who had provided all sorts of goodies - all top class Deli standard by the way - including Apple juice, butter, bread, milk, cheese, marmalade, jam, eggs. cereals, tea etc etc PLUS a smashing bowl of fruit. In the bathroom were other surprises such as shampoo, shower gel and soap. Everything more than perfect.
The actual cottage was a dream - well planned kitchen with every appliance you could ever want (plus the tablets and washing stuff needed) and the added extra of being able to open the door onto the private patio. Romantically bijou!! All kitchen items (cutlery, cooker, surfaces) sparkled in the sunshine and were fantastic.
The sitting/dining room is beautifully presented with lovely comfy sofa situated bang in front of a great telly which even we could operate without any trouble. All units very comptemporary and again filled with goodies - books and puzzles and DVDs - including place mats for the well polished table and sparkling glasses for drinks.
The bedroom was of similar high standard with a super comfy bed and loads of storage space either side. Blinds and drapes in all rooms ensured a virtual blackout at night and thus ensured the perfect night's sleep.
The bathroom was equally lovely - towels fluffy as you like and everything clean and bright. Bath looked great but we stuck with the separate power shower - marvellous. Toilet and basin also sparkling clean.
The path from the private patio through the owners' garden leads to a gate to the Churchtard where we spent a quiet hour wandering around - just splendid - also gives access to the High Street in 2 directions. The Yew trees had recently been pruned so walking along a Yew lined path was like stepping back in time.
Henfield is a lovely little town and has everything you might wany to purchase food wise plus other shops to browse. By the way the Chinese is ab fab - freshly cooked and hot ( not the usual luke warm) upon collection and was really delicious and under 5 mins walk from the cottage. Good wine shop too and the wine selection at the Budgens actually surpassed them.
So...would I return ? yes yes yes - same time next year god willing.
Hidden litltle treasure for sure.

“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in October 2015

What a lovely find!!! A charming, spacious cottage, perfect for a couple, that offers all modern amenities. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and on hand to answer any questions. A very useful "Emergency Box" for those essentials we forgot to pack! The welcome pack was very informative and the box of goodies in the kitchen was a splendid addition to the cottage. I was amazed to realise that Marilyn, the owner, had made the jams and marmalades. The kitchen is well equipped and has the essentials - oil, flour, salt and pepper, etc.Henfield is a delightful village, a real hidden gem set in the heart of the South Downs with lots to do and within easy reach of Brighton, either by bus or car. Ideal for visiting Brighton, and getting to enjoy the countryside at the same time. Would highly recommend and we will return again and again.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a one bedroom accommodation but spacious and very comfortable, Marilyn was very welcoming and there if needed but not intrusive even though the cottage is attached to the main house. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and most welcome after a long drive. So many lovely touches in the cottage, flowers to welcome you, toiletries in the bathroom, everything you would need in the kitchen, lots of books and dvds. The cottage is within walking distance of the village which has plenty of individual shops which have everything you would need. A lovely place which I hope to return to.

“Delightful cottage in super location”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I stayed at Lychgate Cottage for a week in August. The property is ideal for a couple, well appointed and modern. The location is ideal and it is a pleasure to walk down the lanes onto Henfield High Street.

The owners are very helpful and provide a generous welcome pack. We will definitely return.

“A perfect gem!”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A new listing in the beautiful village of Henfield just 12 miles from Brighton. The property was designed as a granny flat and is attached to the owner's house, so the furnishings and equipment all first class and top quality.
Though only one bedroom, all the rooms are a good size with large amounts of storage space throughout the property.
The property is just a three minute walk from Henfield centre, which has an excellent supply of independent shops including two good supermarkets, a post office, banks, restaurants and a small museum. There are numerous walks in and around Henfield and the local countryside, and the South Downs and Devils Dyke are only a few minutes drive away.
The owners couldn't do enough to welcome us and make our stay in Henfield a memorable one, including a welcome basket of local goodies on our arrival and a bottle of wine to celebrate the arrival of our first grandchild in Brighton during the week.
An excellent holiday home for two people, we cannot recommend it highly enough and will certainly be coming back!
