“Wonderful accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

We recently stayed for 4 nights at Chyngton House, as we attended a wedding in Seaford. On arrival, we were greeted very warmly by Lydia, and served tea and lemon drizzle cake in the garden. We were in Juniper and it was a fantastic room, with a lovely bathroom. The double aspect, the comfy couch, the tv and radio, magazines, very comfy bed, hospitality tray, were all very welcome. But my favourite thing was the towels - lovely, big bath sheets rate 5 stars in my book!
The entire house is calming and beautifully presented. I thought I was bad for photographs but you need to see the amazing collection in this house!! They very much tell a family story. I wouldn't like to be dusting them every day - and, that said, there wasn't a speck of dust to be seen anywhere.
We did not meet Alison or Andrew but we cannot speak highly enough of their daughter, Lydia. She is welcoming, friendly, helpful - a real natural for the hospitality business. She could not do enough for us and made us feel very much at home. We would like to wish her the best of luck on her return to university soon.
We highly recommend Chyngton House - a little touch of luxury which we hope to experience some time again.

Thank you so much for your fantastic review - we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we are sorry that we did not meet you this time. However, we are delighted that Lydia looked after you so well.
Your comment about the family photos made me laugh - do we have too many?! I don't think you can ever have too many!
Hope to meet you again another time!

We stayed here before and after travelling to France (Newhaven is very close) and to be honest, needn't have even gone to France as this B & B is wonderful and we'd have been happy staying here and exploring the Sussex coast. The house is beautiful and our hosts Alison, Andrew and Lydia seem so genuinely delighted to see their guests that everyone seemed to have a twinkle in their eye and a spring in their step. Our room was clean and well equipped, better than most hotels at twice the price. There were lots of extra thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers from the garden, tons of mags, home-made cookies and fresh ground coffee in the room and the bed was divine. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better breakfast arrived. Andrew's home made, still warm from the oven, Cinammon Bread was impossible to resist, even after a full English cooked breakfast. We'll be back.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Now you know why I have a weight problem - living with Andrew and his cinnamon bread is too difficult to resist!
We hope to see you both again before too long.

What a perfect place to visit East Sussex from. A beautiful house on the edge of the south downs and a stones throw from the sea and the Seven Sisters. We used this bed and breakfast as a base to explore the homes of the arts and crafts homes of Virginia Woolfe and Vanessa Bell and to do a bit of walking. But it was always a pleasure to return to its tranquil walls. Comfort, peace and a lovely host who enjoyed whizzing up cakes in his kitchen. We would certainly go there again if we visited this part of the country once more.

Lovely listed property not too far from the town and beach although you can walk we did not try this time and only drove. We received a warm welcome by Lydia with tea and cake in the garden. House is well maintained and comfortable. The room we had was fresh, clean and well equipped with everything you need (except tissues!!) but otherwise perfect. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, plenty to choose from and all fresh and/or home made.

We found lots of places to explore in and around Seaford and we look forward to returning soon.

We were traveling on our own from the states and had heard how beautiful the white cliffs were at Seven Sisters Park in Seaford. I bugged Alison with many questions before we even arrived in England and she was so helpful. The location is perfect distance for walking to the park. Andrew was very helpful too, even washing our cloths for a small fee. Tea in china cups (Royal Albert, my favorite) was such a nice treat after touring and traveling on the train all day. They have a lovely house and everything was perfect. Just a note, however, they do have a really sweet cat (in case anyone is allergic, which my son was - but he really didn't have too much trouble at all) but there was no dander or any other evidence other than seeing him (or her) laying around.

What a fantastic place, we were greeted by Andrew who made us feel at home straight away.Tea & Cake in the garden was such a treat. We stayed in Juniper which has fabulous views , a great selection of Refreshments and Homemade Biscuits. The Breakfast was fit for a King & everything looks and tastes delicious. Don't miss out on staying here.

Room Tip: I would think any of these rooms would be great.

This fantastic B&B is #1 in Seaford! I don't even need to see the competition. My husband and I stayed here because of its proximity to the Seven Sisters Country Park and it couldn't have been better. We came from London via train and walked to the B&B which took about 30 minutes but is a beautiful walk. There were several taxis at the train station which would have only taken a few minutes by car but if you don't have much luggage the walk is nice. The family who owns this home is wonderful and while you are in their care you want for nothing. They are so helpful and are great chefs! From shortbread to cupcakes to the best breakfast we've ever had at a B&B. It's a full english breakfast and more! The rooms are lovely and more than you need and the bathrooms look brand new. I can't say enough great things about Chyngton House. Don't look any further- just book it and go and relax!
