“A Different B&B.”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

A warm welcome awaited us ahead of 2 days' walking along the South Downs Way. Our hosts could not have been more helpful. We were walking with another couple, so the arrangement for breakfast in the Annexe was excellent and suited us perfectly. The fridge and kitchen was stocked with everything one would need for the right start for a day's walking. Our hosts obviously are meticulous about details and the standard of the bedroom and shower room/loo reflected that. The sitting area was small but very comfortable, as someone has said, more a small flat than a studio annexe.
We chose to eat in Lewes (Sunday evening and the local pub serves only a limited menu) and can recommend The Pelham Arms.at the top of the High Street...our supper was delicious.
Deep Thatch Cottage is an excellent B&B, very good value, and we would certainly return if in the area.
PS Our host must own one of the few remaining Peerless cars in the country which incidentally was in very good condition!!

Really well appointed accommodation with an unexpected degree of privacy. Our room was described as the studio, a new build over the garage, but it was far more than a studio: apartment/flat would be more appropriate. There was a separate lounge/kitchen/dining area in addition to the bedroom and ensuite. The kitchen was amply stocked with everything you could possibly need for a continental breakfast and all items were top of the range rather than basic buys. At £85 this was £5 more than the other B&B's we stayed in whilst walking the South Downs Way but the provision of the kitchen enabling you to cook if you wanted to more than justified the price. Carol was welcoming and very helpful.

We stayed in the studio for 3 nights - our second stay here. You couldn't want more. For £80 a night we had an open-plan living room, dining room and small kitchen (which included an oven with grill and hob, a fridge and a washing machine); nice sized double bedroom with wardrobe and chest of drawers plus roomy bedside cabinets; and an en suite shower room. The continental (prepare it yourself) breakfast included croissants, bread, butter and sunflower spread, a large selection of marmalades, jams, marmite, peanut butter and honey; a selection of cereals, fresh fruit (including melon and grapes), yoghurt, and three different fruit juices. Apart from good quality instant coffee, three different types of teabags were provided - and two packets of biscuits. Had you wanted to prepare a cooked breakfast you had only to ask for the ingredients to be provided.
We chose to prepare our own evening meals on two of the nights which all worked out well - but, as you are warned, the smoke alarm is sensitive so some nifty footwork is required to turn it off! A delightful, relaxing, stay.

Room Tip: There are also two annexes at Deep Thatch which would be equally comfortable but the studio is above...

A two day stay was a joy. The proprietors were very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was as described and very clean a real home from home with plenty of room. I would definitely use this lovely B&B again.

I stayed in the Annexe for four nights and it is a perfect place for a business traveler like me. There is a fridge and a table and a microwave and all the necessities for a good breakfast are provided. I like being left alone during my trips as well as the conveninece of eating at 6 AM in the morning if I want to and not having to wait to be served breakfast. The bedroom is a bit tiny but perfectly comfortable with a TV and a hairdryer. You can hear noises from the owners kitchen from time to time but it wasn't intrusive. The owners were delightful, helpful and very kind. The village is gorgeous. I took a walk one sunny evening down a lane with thatched cottages and into the churchyard. Magical!

Room Tip: If you are travelling alone then the annexe is perfectly adequate, A bit small for a couple I would...

The 'Annexe' is the smallest of my rooms, anyone wanting more space should also look at the 'Old Stable' or 'Studio'.

Stayed in the studio above the double garage for two nights, really well equipped accommodation. Peaceful location with great walks on the doorstep!! Lewes and Brighton nearby. Friendly welcome great if you want a bit more space than a standard B & B.

We have just arrived back from a weekend at the Deep Thatch Cottage, Stable Block.

Carol, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and for your kindness and understanding about our very late arrival.

The beds are COMFORTABLE, and, the rooms were incredibly clean, and cosy warm. It was wonderful also, getting up in our own time for breakfast. What a very good selection you gave us to choose from.

We will most certainly be coming back, and wandering up to 'Pub' to test the menu again.

We will also highly recommend people we know to stay with you.

Kind regards
Valerie and James London
