Stayed in the Milk house with our 10 month old baby for a short break recently. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and tasteful decor in the cottage which is situated in a terraced row. The gardens are lovely with fruit trees and friendly chickens and a useable clean outdoor pool. Nice touches on arrival including eggs from the chickens and cookies and bread baked fresh by the owners which all tasted fantastic. Les and Louise opened the bake house to the public during our stay for the local food festival but this was in no way intrusive and allowed the purchase of even more delightful baked goods!
It is a great location to explore Sussex including the coast but also just a great place for quiet relaxation.
The accommodation had all we needed to be baby friendly but cooking facilities are limited which although didn't bother us on a short stay may affect some guests.
Overall a wonderful cottage in a pretty setting with lovely owners (and amazing bread!)
