My boyfriend and I stayed in the Piggery for two nights and had a really relaxing time. Jenny and Paul were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. We enjoyed drinks by the stream and lit the fire in the cottage to make it cosy in the morning. It is in a great location where you can go for walks in Ashdown Forest or visit the local pub.
We would very much like to stay here again.

“Great couple, great accommodation, great food, great location. Great. Great. Great.”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I spent four days touring East & West Sussex, using Moss Cottage as my base. Jenny & Paul were most welcoming. They were both very friendly, and eager to do as much as they could to make my stay great. They cooked fab locally resourced food, for breakfast at a time of my own choosing. My room was the converted piggery.
A complete self contained home from home with every possible amenity you could wish for.

“Perfect cottage break”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at The Piggery for a long weekend in March and it provided a much needed break away from the city. Jenny and Paul were extremely affable and helpful and made us feel very welcome with a well stocked kitchen. The local pub, a short walk from The Piggery, did fantastic food, particularly their Sunday lunch. We look forward to our return visit in the near future.

“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in April 2014

We have been meaning to write a review for sometime. My boyfriend and I stayed here for our three year anniversary back in April 2014 for the weekend.
Jenny the owner was lovely and accommodating.
Providing us with fresh food for breakfast to eat in the piggery in the mornings. As well as extra logs for the fire. The wood burner, surroundings and the quite atmosphere is what we loved most. It's very intimate and great for romantic get always.

My boyfriend and I took a stroll into the nearby forest. We walked for many miles and came across a lovely coffee shop "Pooh Corner" which was fantastic! We enjoyed cream teas and scones at lunch time.
(Maps are provided as well in case you get lost)
In the evening we walked to the local pub/restaurant down the road from the piggery (booking in advance is recommended and taking a torch)
At the pub the food was delightful with friendly staff! The manager even offered to give us a lift home as walking in the dark with no street lights can be quite scary!
We really enjoyed our stay here and we loved playing with Jenny's dogs! Who often came and visited us in the garden.
We also had the pleasure of a tour of the main house and enjoyed looking at cars! (If your man like's cars he will be in his element)
Take a camera to capture the nature and surrounding areas. Remember your wellies if you go out for walks!

Thank you so much for a lovely stay! I hope we can return again soon.

Chelsea & Neil

“Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed 14 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Piggery at the end of last year, the place is GORGEOUS- full of charm and unbelievably cosy. Jenny the property owner was so friendly and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. the Wood-burning fire is the highlight of the place so perfect for cold wet winters so spent most of our stay curled up next to it watching movies and drinking wine! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook and even-though we couldn't seem to pick up and WIFI their were a number of DVD's we could watch. This place is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway with beautiful views over the river and a great pub just up the road. HIGHLY recommended can't wait to return again soon.
