“Lovely overnight stay on South Downs way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed 1 night in the Annexe whilst walking a chunk of the SDW. The location is fab for walkers - half a mile off the SDW and a 2 minute walk from the local pub.
The Annexe is a great space for a couple with its own shower room and kitchen area where you can prepare and eat your Continental breakfast. We had toast, cereal, pastries, fruit & yoghurt as well as juices and preserves. It's a great idea and lets guests just get on with breakfast as and when they fancy it.
The place is super clean, tastefully decorated and combines English village charm with practicality. Winner!

We stayed here for one night part of a birthday celebration, and absolutely loved it.

It is impeccably clean, and fantastic value given the space and freedom you get.

The rooms were peaceful, private, brilliantly appointed, and only a short stroll from Monk's House, which was our reason for visiting the area.

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming, without being being over bearing.

In short, it was exactly what we wanted and I would recommend Deep Thatch Cottage to anyone!

We decided to stay in Rodmell whilst visiting family in the area. The village was unknown to us but was charming and set in lovely countryside. Our accommodation was a self contained 1 bed flat on the first floor of a barn/garage. The cleanliness and quality of the decoration and finishes were very good as were the comfortable bed and quality bedding.The supplied breakfast was generous and we were able to prepare what we wanted to eat in the kitchen area.

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and made a very good recommendation to the nearby Abergavenny Arms.

This is an excellent self-catering B&B and we are delighted to have found it. Of its sort, it is the best accommodation I have seen. We stayed in the Old Stable which is a large suite consisting of sitting room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It is clean and the twin beds are very comfortable, the decor is neutral. The bathroom is fairly small but well-equipped and with a good quality shower. I had been expecting very basic catering facilities and breakfast materials, but in fact there is an extremely well-stocked breakfast kitchen with several good quality juices, a range of teas, nice bread, croissants, a wide variety of spreads and cereals, yoghurt, and fresh fruit. The accommodation gives you the privacy and independence of a small self-catering cottage at B&B prices – we paid £90 which is excellent value for the area. There is a TV and a range of books if needed. There is a courtyard with seating outside and parking is easy. The village setting is beautiful and the host is very pleasant and helpful without being intrusive, and it is clear that the whole undertaking has been very carefully thought through and well-managed. Booking is easy and efficient. In all, an outstanding base for visiting nearby, or as stop-over for the Newhaven ferry – or for that matter it would be fine for a more extended holiday.

We stayed for only one night in the Studio but wished it had been longer. It is a very quiet location. The Studio is clean, cosy and very well-equipped with everything we needed and more. Really appreciated the thoughtful extra touches such as the furry hot-water bottles! Would hope to visit again.

Writing on behalf of my in laws who have stayed here twice now. They said carol and Gerry the owner were so welcoming and friendly. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious and had everything they needed. The house is set in the beautiful village of Rodmell and they intend to stay here during every future visit and wanted me to thank you very much for such an enjoyable stay.

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!!
