“Outstanding BB on the South Downs”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Contrary to Kathryn M's review, we found just the opposite! We too arrived wet and cold but the warmth of the reception and hospitality of our host more than made up for any discomfort we may have felt. We very much appreciated the homemade cake and cup of tea. The wood burner was already lit, which made the living room nice and cosy - and dried our boots beautifully!

After hearty supper at the Shoe Inn we retired to our comfortable beds and had slept soundly until, tempted back to the main house, for an scrumptious breakfast - you must try eggs baked in the agar - divine!

Our thanks to Tina to a wonderful stay and suggestion for the rest of our trip.

We will be back (but in the summer!)

The Manor House B&B offerred us a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable rest bite after a day's hiking on the Downs. The cottage was cozy, the beds comfortable and the hostess was a delight.

We had a wonderful evening in the local pub which had an excellent menu and warm atmosphere. The homemade breakfast was delicious, and afterwards we were welcome to look around the beautiful garden.

We would highly recommend this B&B and look forward to retuning in the near future. Thank you ever so much Tina.

We arrived at the Manor House B&B in Exton wet and cold, but looking forward to warmth and comfort. Instead we were greeted by unwarmed rooms and nowhere warm and dry to put our wet gear. Manor House is on the South Downs Way so drying facilities are essential. An offer to collect wet boots to be placed by the Aga was not fulfilled.
The converted stables are pleasant but one couple has to walk through the living room to access their bathroom which is slightly odd. Neither bed was comfortable, so none of us had a particularly good night's sleep.
We had an excellent breakfast but were reminded that we needed to be out by 10 am. In contrast to the next B&B we stayed in, where nothing was too much trouble, we felt as if we were an inconvenience.
This is an expensive B&B so we were expecting a high degree of comfort and care: we did not feel we received this at all.

We had two lovely nights in the grounds of this gorgeous manor house. The accommodation was immaculate, lovely to stay in and entirely designed for comfort, simple elegance and relaxation. Tina was a wonderful hostess, her home-made breakfasts superb, in the conservatory of the main house overlooking the gardens. The gardens, which we were welcome to wander around, were beautiful. This is a very special place and Tina could not have been more gracious. We really look forward to returning. Thank you. (The local Shoe Inn was great for supper too).

We enjoyed a relaxing two nights in this beautiful setting with spacious, spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable accommodation. Delicious and plentiful breakfasts with home made produce in a most attractive garden room. The Shoe Inn situated in the village is ideal for an evening stroll and serves good food. We visited Portsmouth easily for the day and would have liked to stay longer to walk on the Downs. Tina's garden is remarkable and we are pleased we found the Manor House.

We just had two wonderful nights in this blissful retreat in such a lovely village on the edge of the South Downs. Tina is a brilliant hostess, very available without being at all intrusive, friendly and warm too. The accommodation is spotless and maintained to a very high standard. Breakfast is fresh and delicious. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

A fabulous stop for walkers on the South Downs Way. The tea and lemon drizzle cake were very welcome after a long walk. Tina was very welcoming and the accommodation was superb. The decor was modern and clean and the beds comfortable with fantastic White Company linen! Breakfast was in the lovely conservatory. Food was delicious and plentiful and kept us going all day! The recommendation for an evening meal at the Shoe Inn was excellent. A great B & B!
