Small but perfectly formed!

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is very cosy, but everything you need has been incorporated, we even had a gift box of gluten free chocolate biscuits which I really enjoyed! The velux roof light has its own roller blind so the lodge can be made totally dark at night. Comfy garden chairs were provided so we had breakfast in the little courtyard garden on a couple of sunny mornings. We used the DVD to watch one of the selection provided but only tried to watch the television once and somehow didn't manage to follow the instructions but that didn't matter as we didn't particularly need to watch. The washing machine did a great job and is very cunningly hidden away under the breakfast counter. We didn't need to use the dishwasher but everything was provided for using it if we had wanted to. For some reason we couldn't identify the switch to turn on the heated towel rail but in mid summer we were able to dry the big fluffy towels provided on the drying rack cleverly tucked away beside the wardrobe( inside which were an ironing board and iron). The village is charming, I found a bakery selling gluten free bread there too - a real bonus in a tiny village. We definitely recommend this charming retreat near a Brighton for a relaxing two person break, and we're delighted to be so kindly welcomed by the owners who gave excellent directions to enable us to find the Lodge.

Stylish and well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

Greeted by owner who was very pleasant and chatty. The accommodation was like a very large, beautifully fitted out hotel room with attached kitchen and shower room (although I would have liked a bath). Everything you need in holiday accommodation was provided. The bed was enormous and the white linen was spotless. Although it was very close to the busy High Street it was peaceful, and the patio area was charming.

A couple of minor problems. The radiator/towel rail leaked oil on the bathroom floor when turned on. We put a pot under the leak and told the owner first thing the next day, expecting it to be fixed when we returned in the evening. It was not fixed then, or at all. The pot remained and we were reluctant to turn the radiator on to dry our towels. On our last night there was a heavy rain storm. The velux skylight started to let water in, which dripped on the side of the bed. We pushed the bed as far as possible out of the way, and eventually the rain stopped. So did the drip.

Given the above, and the lack of a bath, I feel the cost was rather excessive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive aspect of your review. Regarding the problems with the radiator, we did explain to the quest that we had ordered and fitted a new element. However we hadn't tightened the fitted enough therefore creating a "very small "leak, which dripped into a very small pot. Sadly we didn't realise that was the problem and so reordered another element which hadn't been delivered in the time the quest was staying. We did apologies for this inconvenient, and thought that as the weather was warm the towels could be dryed by using the supplied airier. As for the skylight that was supposed to be leaking in the rain storm, it was in fact left open on the first catch. Had it have been closed at the time it would not have dripped on the bed. As for the lack of bath, we dont offer or advertise such a facility only a large walk in shower. We are sorry this quest wasn't completely safisified but all in all it was perhaps only the towel rail that was faulty. These things happen in the lifetime of a holiday rental, but we pride ourselves in providing a well kept and well maintained property. We hope all future guest will enjoy the continuing high standards that we pride ourselves in providing. However we are always here to help when things dont go to plan.

Beautiful accommodation, lovely village

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage in the village of Hurstpierpoint had everything you need. It was very clean and well maintained. Although no parking on the property we were able to unload then park nearby with the parking disc provided. It is central to a lot of places with a choice of supermarkets approx 5-7 miles either direction. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Rod and Geraldine.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay, perfect !!!

Everything you could wish for is in this property..... it's so well furnished & equiped yet its compact but with a spacious feel because so much thought has gone into it. All mod cons, excellent bathroom, lots of storage space, including places to hide suitcases away whilst staying there ( big pine chests ) comfy beds & seating.

I would recommend The Lodge without hesitation!

From after eight mints to dishwasher tablets...everything has been thought of.

It's so well insulated that we had to let some of the warmth escape through the roof light !!

There are many good restaurants in Hurstpeirepoint & nearby, it's a good base for exploring this part of Sussex & for those of us with a bus pass it's opposite the stop for the regular limited stop bus in Brighton!!!

So thank you Rod & Gerry we really enjoyed our stay, your property is so welcoming, clean & well maintained.

We really enjoyed meeting you both as you're such kind & welcoming people.

We'll be back.
