My wife and I booked a single night at Burghurst Lodge as we needed to be in Haywards Heath the following day. The location is excellent - being only a short distance from the main road but in a quiet, rural spot.
The owner, Jessica, was very welcoming and struck a fine balance between being friendly and interested in you without being intrusive.
The accommodation itself is a detached annexe to the main house and is like your own one-bed studio apartment. You have a large sleeping/living area, a kitchenette and a shower room. The whole place looks to have been recently renovated and with impeccable taste from the good quality bed and linens to furnishings. It's one of those places where we both looked at each other and said 'nice'.
Normally I like to include any negatives we found just to provide some balance but really, there was nothing to complain about. Especially when at £65 I think it offers excellent value for money. By the way, it's worth paying the optional tenner and going for the cooked breakfast - spot on!
