“A Country escape”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Orchard Cottage is a little gem nestled in the South Downs, with easy access to Brighton and surrounding area. A beautifully appointed 3 bed all with en-suite cottage situated in the walled kitchen garden of a Country House, close to and with easy access to the A23.All amenities in the cottage washer/dryer, dishwasher and all you need...just bring the food and drink. Excellent welcome pack of cake, milk , butter and preserves was much enjoyed and the Hosts are extremely friendly.
A definite return is needed!

“lovely accommodation”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The cottage was lovely - very clean, spacious, well equipped. It was in an ideal location, beautiful walks and only 7 miles from Brighton. The children loved it and we are all looking forward to a return visit. The preserves and lemon drizzle cake were a lovely touch on arrival. Thank you for a very memorable stay.

“Outstanding accommodation”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Set in an outstanding country location just north of Brighton this property is furnished and finished to a very high standard. The excellent provisions provided allow you to settle in without an urgent trip to the supermarket.
Whilst you cannot hear it from inside the house the road noise from the nearby A23 might disturb you if you spent a lot of time in the garden.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and will definitely return. Highly recommended.

“Great Family Accommodation near Brighton”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We booked Orchard Cottage for a weekend break in February 2013. The cottage is in a wonderful location, about 7 miles north of Brighton, in the grounds of a moated country house called Newtimber Place.

The cottage was comfortably furnished and provided plenty of living space for my wife and I and our three children aged 1, 2 and 4. The master bedroom is very generously sized, with a large en-suite and the other 2 bedrooms are also very good sizes. The kitchen was very well equipped, with plenty of crockery, glasses and untensils as well as excellent appliances which all aided in making our stay very comfortable. The central heating was excellent - and much needed over a particularly cold weekend!

We enjoyed looking around the grounds of Newtimber place, walking in the woodlands, beside the stream, and we were all excited to see a fox running about in the cottage's garden.

The cottage is close enough to Brighton to make visiting the city very easy, but secluded and remote enough to feel very relaxing, quiet and calm.

We would highly recommend Orchard Cottage and look forward to visiting again in the future!
