Reviewed 3 days ago for a stay in August 2017

This property is in an ideal location for getting to know East Sussex. It is set in an idyllic garden and the property has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Joy and John are most welcoming - of my dog, too - and the home-made scones on arrival were an added treat! I would definitely like to visit again.

Management response:

Thanks for the lovely review. Looking forward to seeing you and of course Ted again.

Joy and John have thought of everything to make The Getaway a perfect place to stay. We were welcomed with homemade scones and jam which was such a lovely touch. The studio is so well equipped, it's comfortable and quiet. The shower is amazing! Also, it is great value for money. Can't fault it - 10 out of 10.

Management response:

Thank you so much for the lovely review. It's really great to get such positive feedback.

Beautiful cottage in lovely grounds with very welcoming owners - Joy & John who provided delicious scones on our arrival. Despite it being Dec/Jan the cottage was lovely, warm and cosy. Everything you could need was provided. It's set in a beautiful area with easy access to many great walks and Beachy Head, Seven Sisters and Brighton are all within...

Management response:

Thank you for the lovely review. We always hope guests have a good time, whatever the weather or time of year!
