“Wow, what a truly fantastic place”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Well the photos do not do this wonderful place justice. It was utterly fantastic. I stayed here with 3 friends this last weekend and what a cute and very well appointed place this was. I say cute but that does not indicate the size at all. The place was much larger than expected! The rooms are very well appointed with comfy beds and lovely linen. The bathrooms are modern and large. The log burner is excellent and the kitchen has everything you could ever want. The views are superb from the terrace and we will definitely be back to visit in the summer so we can make the most of that. It is lovely and remote too so if you really do fancy getting away from it - this is your place. Needless to say none of us wanted to leave but leave we must. Well done as this is EXACTLY how a holiday let should be. Great value and no hesitation in recommending to friends and families alike.

“Perfect Anniversary Weekend”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Old Workshop is perfect in every way! It is in a lovely, quiet location with picturesque views from the decking area and just a short drive from anywhere you may wish to visit.

Very well equipped with everything needed.

We were here for our 1 year anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

Thank you Jenny for the lovely welcome gifts - these were very unexpected and a lovely gesture.

Once again - sorry about the oven knob :)

Thanks again
Chris & Aimee

“A pleasant and quiet stay in British countryside”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spend 11 days at the Old Worshop in late July and August and we enjoyed a pleasant and quiet stay. The house is a bit isolated (although there are other houses near), and the distribution of the rooms makes it really comfortable. Besides you get a lot of peace, with a lot of green around and the opportunity to enjoy the landscapes of East Sussex, a really cute area that is worth seeing.

“Beautiful home with beautiful views”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a wonderful week here. The Old Workshop is well equipped, the owners are lovely, warm and welcoming, also they provided unexpected extras which were a very pleasant surprise. They also catered to our extra needs, we had a young baby with us, without any fuss or bother. The view is beautiful, the whole environment peaceful and relaxing, the neighbours friendly. Sitting out on the balcony/terrace, especially first thing in the morning I could feel all stress just melting away. The Workshop itself has been converted to a really high standard, it's very comfortable, a real home from home. We would definitely recommend a stay here and are hoping to visit again ourselves.

“Lovely countryside stay in a nice cottage”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent two weeks in the old workshop. The living room is wide open and comfortable. The establishment of the cottage is new and tasty The owners are just a walk away and very nice. Our daughter take a ride on the owners horse. There is a lot to see, but you need a car. Because we stayed longer and want to cook, we suggest to drive to Crowborough (Morrison). Visit Batemans, Seven Sisters, Scotney Castle, Brighton, Kew Garden, Camber Sands and Rye. We had recommended old workshop to a friend. Thank you Jenny. Hope we will see you again.

“Lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We hired the workshop for 3 nights. Lovely spacious open plan living room , 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All the essentials provided excluding iron, hairdryer , microwave, washing machine, oven to name a few and wifi which was a big bonus. Very secluded which we like but with the bonus of the owners just a walk away . Car is needed due to remote location but pub for a bit to eat and main shops just a short drive away . All in all a lovely short break and would definitely return again , thank you
