“AN EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were warmly welcomed by Julia and had a tour of this fantastic cottage which is in an absolutely lovely situation in the middle of the Sussex countryside. We we're provide with bread,eggs, milk, tea and coffee. Julia and Paul are a lovely couple - they always were hard at work but always had time for a chat about what we had done and where we had been during the day. We would totally recommend this cottage to anyone - the problem is that the cottage may get fully booked with no slots for us to use it .

So pleased that you will be staying for two weeks next year and that the dates are in our diary! Such a pleasure to welcome you back each year-just wish the years did not fly by so quickly..is that a sign of age!!! Good that the later journey home worked well, especially at the Dartford tunnel.
We await news of your granddaughter! Julia,Paul & Ghilly

“Another wonderful stay at The Byre”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our second stay at The Byre. Last year we went for two weeks, this year only one. Next time we will book two weeks again. Paul and Julia are the hosts every cottage should have, they now the best places to visit, where to get the best cherries etc. etc. One week is simply not enough to see so many things. The Byre is all you can wish for if you look for a countryside holiday. The Byre is well maintained and equipped with good quality furniture and above all, a fantastic bed. If you bring your dog along, the Byre is unequaled, 30 acres (12 Ha) private land, a public footpath crossing the estate and half a mile from the public road. Although on the countryside, a big Sainsburys and a enormous Tesco are within ten minutes. Westfield Butcher "Archers" will provide you with the best meat in the area. Paul, Julia and Ghilly, thank you for a great week and we hope to see you soon.

Dear Sicco,Paula & Paddy,
It would be fantastic if you could stay for 2 weeks and Ghilly would be delighted. Ghilly is now fully recovered from his tooth extraction..he had to have 6 teeth removed but he has got 34 left!! Following your suggestion, we have put a large comfortable Laura Ashley sofa in the Garden room!
Hope to see you all again in 2015
