Quality Traditional Countryside B&B
Very approachable host, individually furnished rooms have their own characters, excellent breakfast.
Good value. Enough said.
Cleanliness of room
During our stay we felt the sleeping accommodation was very good however there were several areas where cobwebs were visible.
Some might say it adds to the charm of the building but general housekeeping in my opinion needs to be reviewed. We didn't feel overly welcomed and as though our visit was valued. The owner went through the welcome motions on our arrival and even took payment before being taken to our room. when leaving there was no sign of anyone and no goodbye,almost feeling we were an inconvenience to their day. Hardly customer focused and the owners manner could be taken as being rather abrupt. Breakfast was excellent and the choices were very good for a small B&B. Unfortunately we felt rushed, for the sake of ten minutes the owner announced that she was clearing the breakfast buffet before we had even finished. Were we just an inconvenience to her?
What a relaxing place to spend some quality time.
Beautiful views and surroundings. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed. So pleased we found it.
Well done Sally

Fantastic 16th Century House
We this a wonderful place to stay.
You get a real feel of the country as you drive down the minor (some single track depending your route) roads, to the beautiful location, this enhances the whole experience.

Friendly and efficient hospitality in very comfortable surroundings with a delicious breakfast!
BN27 1QJ When visiting east Sussex for the night Like some migrating bird that’s on the wing, And Herstmonceux appears within your sight Why not attempt to perch at Cleavers Lyng .
This ancient English Grade II listed pile
Has seen a wealth of history unfold -
An inn in the Elizabethan style
With stories by the hundred to be told. The décor’s fine with bedrooms all en suite;
The breakfast’s an unqualified delight;
The nearby castle is a certain treat;
The Levels an elucidating sight -
And while Bexhill and Eastbourne might impress
Old Hastings snatches victory from success.
A Gentler Pulse and a Fresher Awakening
The house is situated near the end of a rural cul-de-sac straddling the Prime Meridian, where no through traffic disturbs the visitor's sleep and where the Greenwich Observatory found a site from which to observe the night skies unpolluted by the lights of the city.
So the visitor feels as if they are resting on the principal artery of the world, yet where, for the length of one's stay, Greenwich Mean Time relaxes it's insistent pulse and allows the sounds of the woodland and the singing of birds to set a slower rhythm. Inside the house, classical music gently welcomes the guest and the lower ceilings of another century wrap you in fresh linen and give you a deeper sleep and a fresher awakening. Sally's breakfast is unhurried, generous and offers the kind of choice you would never expect at an early hour, and if you have time, as we had, you may leave your car at the house and take a stroll to Herstmonceux church, which stands on a site of pre-Christian wonder and worship, and commands a view accross the fields to the site of England's last invasion. I'm not surpised that when they had marched accross Pevensey Levels, and found shelter in this ancient forest, the Normans decided that this is where they would make their new home. A special place to rest a while.
Still good second time round
Breakfast deserves a rating off the scale.
Superb location, excellent standards, and dogs allowed.
Lovely place, lovely stay
