“Complete comfort and charm in secluded peaceful countryside.”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We received a warm welcome from Joan, a relaxed but thoroughly efficient host.
Pippins is a lovely retreat with everything we needed. Probably the cleanest place I ' ve stayed in - a well kept, tastefully furnished, very comfortable and happy home from home.
The huge bed was super comfortable and firm enough for my dodgy back,great quality bed linen, absolute peace at all times of day and night as Sunnymead is secluded, the surrounding area is peaceful beauty ; a walker ' s paradise filled with birdsong,rolling hills, lush greenery
picture postcard villages and well designed buildings.
We self catered, but the nearest pub looked rather lovely and Sussex seems to cater for fussy - picky people who like quality! Whatever you want won' t be too hard to find.

Most liked thing? It was just wonderful, everything was great, and no plug in air fresheners or overwhelming cleaning smells (a personal hatred of mine ) , the comfortable bed was an A - plus.
Least liked? At a push........a really hard push,there was no clothes airer but there is a washing line, also a washerdrier so I AM struggling to find fault!
A delightfully peaceful break, we left Sussex feeling relaxed, happy and would definitely return to Sunnymead.

“Fabulous cottage in wonderful location with the warmest of welcomes”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

Pippins is a fantastic little cottage which is beautifully kept and furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The attention to detail is noticeable making it a real home from home. The location is wonderful particularly for wildlife lovers and walkers but it is also near enough to Crowborough (where the relatives we were visiting live) to make access to other amenities easy. You could not wish for a better welcome either. Our hostess was kindness itself and welcomed us with homemade cakes to have with a cup of tea, for which everything was already laid out on a tray for us. The cottage was warm and cosy (just what was needed for a February break) and the bed was so comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. I can't recommend Pippins highly enough.
