Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect location, perfect house and very pet friendly.
We needed accommodation near to Lewes,this fitted the bill perfectly with the added bonus of oodles of things to do right on the doorstep. Very relaxed property, both beautifully and comfortably furnished.Owners super friendly and helpful, and although right next door, not at all intrusive. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Wet weekend
We picked the only rubbish wet weekend of the summer. We managed to find finches after some assistance with direction from Chris and Jo. Lovely accommodation very clean and games and dvds for bad weather!!,there was a massive field for us to take our 3 dogs to burn off some of their energy. A really nice touch of a welcome box of goodies and fresh eggs. On the Saturday we ventured out to have to come back as weather so bad, so we went to the tearooms with not a lot of hope of anything good to come out of our day. We were pleasantly surprised a lovely cooked meal served by one of their daughter who was lovely. Oh how could I forget we had a lovely homemade pudding too. I would highly recommend finches as a quiet retreat and very friendly hosts.

Beautiful modern barn conversion
We had a wonderful stay at Finches. The cottage was immaculately clean and well equipt, and Chris and Jo were very helpful and friendly both before we arrived and during our stay. There was plenty of room for our family of 6, and our boys loved the games room. It was located close to beautiful villages and pooh corner, and was also close enough to other big centres for day trips. Thank you for a lovely stay in this pretty part of the world.

Relaxing break
We spent 4 nights at The Finches with our children and dogs. It is a lovely, comfortable place which was very clean and well equipped. There are good quality fixtures and fittings and very comfortable beds. The children enjoyed playing in the under cover games area and the dogs loved running around in the large field. It’s only a short drive to a range of pubs, shops and take aways, however we spent most of the time in and around the property. The owners were on hand if we needed them but very much left us to enjoy our time there. I would recommend this as a great place to relax or as a base to explore the surrounding area.

Absolutely ideal
Chris what a lovely man well spoken helpful and friendly him and his partner got a few little projects going on lovely to see. We (my colleagues and i) 3 of us hired the cottage for a week best move since working in Kent wish we found it sooner and currently here for our 2nd week and hopefully get 2 book a 3rd. Was created by Chris personally I had problems with air B&B but he couldn't do enough to combat this and help us. We had cake eggs Apple juice all supplied from their own produce. Piano games tv HiFi it's a home ! WiFi wheelchair friendly It's just 5minutes from the town of heathfield just enough off the beaten track so to speak.. I'm not saying to much coz u might steal my little gem of a find !

Made to feel welcome with a welcome box of provisions, fresh laid eggs, fresh apple juice, home made cake.
The accommodation was comfortable in a peaceful country location close to the pretty small town of Mayfield where there are a few shops cafes and a pub. The towns of Tunbridge Wells and Heathfield are close by.The owners made us welcome along with our puppy. On arrival there was a box of provisions for us fresh laid eggs, fresh apple juice and home made cakes. There was privacy during the stay and a self contained garden to the property which the dog was able to use. I would recommend Finches as a good place to stay.

Beautiful and quiet
Finches is in a lovely spot, the hosts, Chris and Jo are lovely. Arriving at the house there was a lovely welcome box of home made cake, wine, milk etc. The house is spacious, enough for two teenagers and there is an ample technology for them to be happy: wifi, cd player, tv and dvd player. We had a lovely week and would go back another time.

Thoughtfully prepared,comfortable barn conversion in pretty location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Finches. The property was well appointed, clean and comfortable. We appreciated the cakes, wine and freshly laid eggs left to welcome us. The owners were friendly, contactable, but never intrusive. The surrounding area was attractive, with amenities close by. A great place for a family break.
