Perfect. Absolutely delightful.
I had to suddenly visit UK and London to deal with some documentation, and so my two-week stay in mid-November was somewhat reluctant and stressful. I needed somewhere within easy reach of London (via Uckfield station), and ideally, Newhaven too. As an animal lover, once I saw there was a lovely holiday let with alpacas all around, that was the deciding factor. As it turned out, I loved it there, and stayed for almost five weeks. Chris & Vicki couldn't be better hosts. Their hospitality was the best I've ever experienced anywhere, especially at what was a difficult time/Xmas for us. Waking up every morning to see alpacas wandering around outside the bedroom window was wonderful, as was seeing them just before bedtime, in their stables. There were over 100 of them, in all shapes, colours and sizes, often passing the living room windows too. They are almost silent and the whole farm is peaceful and quiet, as are the surroundings. Uckfield is a pleasant town, with free parking, only a few miles away, via some bumpy, rural back roads. The lodge itself was spotlessly clean, with all the facilities one could ever wish for. Far more than I ever needed even in 5 weeks, including a Xmas tree. The wifi was faultless. Water was immediately hot. The whole place was always warm. It couldn't be better really. If I have to return to UK in future, I'd certainly stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the farm . Coming from South West London we enjoyed the peaceful setting . The farm is so clean and the animals are cared for so well and seem happy . The Lodge itself is homely and spacious . The patio area is lovely to watch the alpacas in the sun . We did feel a bit squashed up in the bench being three of us we informed Chris who happily gave us two comfortable chairs to use during the holiday only a suggestion but for the summer the use of a sun bed lounger would be perfect . The shower was lovely in temperature but only thing was even though they have anti slip on the floor I felt it was slippy and maybe someone less able or older may have issues with it . It could be easily remedied with a cheap anti slip bath Matt . Other then this we enjoyed are stay and even though the owners are extremely busy being a working farm they took time to chat with us about the farm and also Vicki kindly opened the shop for us after the walks which I bort a beautiful handmade scarf . The alpacas are beautiful and clean and great for taking photos . The owners really care for there animals . The area is off the beaten track but things are within reach . We loved visiting fletching and the Griffin Inn was very quirky with all different ornaments etc . We really enjoyed denikar farm just up the road for food . They have a good butchers and other suppliers such as eggs milk bread cheese fruit . The sausages were excellent and we cooked them with pasta and some apples with a chilli tomato sauce . Denikar farm also has a cafe restaurant the fish and chips were excellent . If you want a big shop then uckfield is about ten min drive . We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back . This alpaca always came to say hello to us in the morning I forgot to ask Vicki the name . Would be interested to know his name he was a very curious chap always bort a smile to our faces ! See you soon Rachel , Rebecca David

Such a relaxing stay. Don’t forget your camera, those alpacas are SO cute!
What a great time we all had at Spring Farm Alpacas in the lovely Sussex countryside and pretty village of Fletching. The lodge was comfortable, well equipped and spacious and to be able to sit and see the alpacas, and their babies, just outside the window was amazing. It was also fascinating to watch the staff who took such a pride in their work. We missed those gorgeous alpacas as soon as we left! Vicki, Chris and staff were friendly and helpful and clearly absolutely love their animals. Our alpaca walk with “Rhubarb” was a wonderful experience with so many interesting facts along the way. During our stay we also visited Sheffield Park Gardens, Lewes Castle, Ashdown Forest, Newhaven Fort and walked the coastal path to Peacehaven. The day we left we enjoyed great views from Beachy Head. We were lucky to have some nice weather so we would return each day to the tranquil surroundings of the farm and enjoy a meal outside at the picnic table. My adult son joined us for this trip and used the sofa bed. We all had enough room and loved waking up to the sound of birds and wondering which alpaca may be outside our window! “ Superman” enjoyed watching us as much as the other way around I think! Would definitely recommend this holiday let. We were made to feel very welcome. It was just what we all needed. Thank you.

Very restfull - the Alpacas are very easy on the eye.
Tucked away in the Sussex countryside - a very user friendly lodge. Within easy reach of the Sussex coast and with more than enough castles, houses and gardens to visit. We more than covered our National Trust subscriptions. Would definitely consider another visit.

An excellent holiday let, could not have wished for anything better. Very well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. Chris and Vicki made us very welcome and their passion for wildlife and the alpacas is amazing. They were able to accommodate us on a walk during our stay which was a wonderful experience and a must do it you are lucky enough to stay here. The lodge is well located for visiting the innumerable attractions of Sussex. A trip to Birling gap is a must! We look forward to a return visit.

Luxury and comfort among friends
This self catering lodge is comfortable, well furnished and equipped with all you need for enjoying life in the countryside. It is like a luxury serviced apartment but in the pleasure of a country bungalow. I arrived in cold weather and the heating worked very well. It is easily controlled for your personal comfort. The proximity to the alpacas at the corner of a field means you wake up and enjoy their company outside every morning at breakfast. It is peaceful and immensely rewarding. Chris and Vicki are wonderful and caring people who make you feel welcome and who willingly share knowledge and time despite their very busy routines. Their thorough engagement with their animals as well as with the humans around them facilitate a deep harmony that is unique, truly special and most enjoyable. This experience has been marvellous and I will definitely return.

Perfect stay
Beautiful, clean, modern, well equipped accommodation, amongst the best we have ever stayed in. (and we've stayed in literally hundreds of places) Our 3 year old grandson loved meeting the alpacas. Our hosts were very warm, knowledgeable and welcoming. Nearby Peacock Inn serves great food. The Lodge is well positioned for Uckfield and its amenities. Brighton and Lewes are an easy drive away. Blue Bell Railway and Sheffield Park are well worth a visit too. A perfect stay in a perfect location.Can't wait to see the alpacas again, such characters.

Everything perfect!
We spent an excellent week at the Lodge on Spring Farm. The Lodge is clean, modern and very well equipped, all the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is lovely to be able to look out of the windows and watch the alpacas and llamas in their fields. We enjoyed a cup of tea outside on the bench, watching the alpacas in the sunshine – even in October. We had a great time finding out about the alpacas, who are obviously happy and very well looked after. Vicki and Chris made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of information about the lodge and local area. The Lodge is in a quiet location, but there is lots to do only a short distance from the farm and shops, pubs etc are only a few minutes’ drive away. Can’t think of anything negative to say, it was a perfect week! We hope to come and stay again.
