Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Perfect little stay... The host are extremely welcoming. But keep themselves very much out the of way unless needed! Jan 2012.
  2. Ideal location for local pubs which served excellent food & village of Amberley where the museum/pottery etc was - a very good day out. The local tea rooms also served a very nice afternoon tea with a beautiful view overlooking the river. Local people very warm, friendly & welcoming - very relaxing mini break. Sept 2011.
  3. The cottage is ideally situated for walking holidays with fantastic countryside all within easy reach. Local pub is a bit pricey but others are available not too far away. March 2011.
  4. Cosy romantic, with flowers from the garden in every room, an idyllic getaway. The best folder of local information we’ve ever seen. Feb 2011.
  5. Compact but very cosy. We liked the log fire burning when we arrived and fresh flowers were very welcoming. Lovely rural garden with large variety of birds. Feb 2011.
  6. Small but very cosy. July 2010.
  7. Set in a beautiful village, quiet, lovely garden, good for walking. April 2010.
  8. Very pleasant cottage, a lot of character, liked the log fire, owner very helpful and welcoming. April 2010.
  9. A charming cottage with a very warm feel to it. Log fire burning when we arrived, flowers in the rooms, small and cosy but with all the basics you’d need. The owners greeted us, showed us in and then left us alone (very nice friendly couple), for a first time of renting a cottage it all went smoothly and i have no hesitation in recommending this as a romantic getaway. April 2010.
  10. Very cosy, an ideal and intimate retreat for two. The log fire was very warming and creates a comforting atmosphere. An inviting bedroom with a very comfortable bed. A great bathroom too, a good sized bath with plenty of hot water. Dec 2009.
  11. Very small cottage but well equipped and warm. Lovely fire. Dec 2009.
  12. Lovely open fire. Nov 2009.
  13. We arrived on a wet and windy afternoon to find the fire lit and the cottage warm & inviting! It was a wonderful start to the weekend! Nov 2009.
  14. Just perfect size and facilities for us. We wanted somewhere to relax and use as a base for exploration and this was perfect. The owners were close by but not intrusive - a fire was lit ready for us and fresh flowers too. Oct 2009.
  15. Good location for the major attractions. July 2009.
  16. Very pretty accommodation - nice and clean. Good location 3 pubs / restaurants within easy walking distance. June 2009.
  17. We returned to Martin’s cottage after an excellent break 19 years ago, and yet again, we were not disappointed - the holiday lived up to our expectations all over again. Feb 2009.
  18. A perfect romantic getaway in a quaint thatched cottage set in the tranquil village of Bury. The real log fire made it feel very snug and cosy. Beautiful walks right from the doorstep. March 2009.
  19. Great location for walking eg Sussex Downs and walking along the river. March 2009.
  20. Lovely cottage, beautifully presented, great fun! Feb 2009.
