We stayed in Michelle’s other cottage a couple of years ago for the New Year so we knew cleanliness or quality would never be in question and we were right. The cottage was quaint with everything we needed on hand or within easy reach.
The village has 2 pubs which are very different, The Bull that is renowned for its fine dining (personally I was disappointed, frozen peas don’t quite warrant fine dining and the fish was tasteless too). On the other hand the White Horse was excellent, friendly bar staff, a gentleman of a landlord, the scallops and steak far outshone their neighbours food.
The ease of the frequent trains from nearby Hassocks makes getting in and out of Brighton (a must for all visitors) easy.
Would have no qualms about returning to either of Michelle’s cottages and will be returning a lot sooner than the 2 years we had previously left it.
A great place to stay in the middle of a lovely village and area. Loads to do around and about, walking, places to see. We were visiting Virginia Woolf locations and it was perfect. The coast is very near too. The cottage was compact but had everything we needed and it was comfortable and very convenient. There are two great pubs on the doorstep and we loved Ditchling. Hope to come back.
Stayed here for a total of 5 nights prior to and after our wedding day at pangdean barn earlier this month. The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and very quirky. The cottage provided a brilliant setting for preparing for our special day, had adequate space for hair and make up artists to come in to get all of my family/bridal party ready on the morning of our wedding. The beams and quirky decor provided a great backdrop for our professional photos and Michelle was always just an email or a text away. The bubbly and card on arrival was a lovely thoughtful gesture. Would love to come back one day and would highly recommend this accommodation. Five stars.
2nd stay at this cottage for Brighton marathon weekend (stayed a week in 2016). Lovely, homely, clean cottage. Great access to Hassocks train station for easy travel into Brighton and great location to explore the beautiful surrounding South Downs countryside. Great food can be found in the village at the The White Horse just up the road which is also very friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at this cottage and the owner is very helpful and friendly. Will probably have another stay here in the future!
The cottage had everything we needed for a weeks stay. Very cosy and lots of character. The kitchen was well equipped and was nice to have a bath with good pressure on shower. - my partner very pleased about this! Ditchling we found out is not great for mobile phones,(although we did get reception in a corner of one of the bedrooms) however there is internet at the Cottage. The bedrooms were both light and airy and the beds huge and very comfortable. The house is tastefully decorated and very clean. The patio outside has charm and is secluded. Ditchling is a beautiful village, we were spoilt for things to do, being close to both Brighton and Lewes (a must to visit). Michelle was great and nothing too much trouble.
