We stayed last week on the first night of a week away in Sussex. What a mistake!
Once you have stayed here everywhere else will seem second best. It really is extraordinary; perched on the cliff at Beachy Head.
The greeting from Ian, the manager, made us feel that the place belonged to us.
Our room looked over the rolling South Downs, but the views from the first floor lounge and light room at the top were fantastic. Take a walk around the outside if you dare
We had a great time chatting with the other guests, as we drank champagne and watched the world go by, from sunset to darkness, with the lights of ships in the distance.
Great location, accommodation, food and company, what more could we have asked for. Thanks.
