Set in a beautiful location with great views and plenty of country walks but also only a short drive to the coast. Welcome was genuinely warm and welcoming. Room was very clean and tidy and the breakfast marvellous. One of the best B&B experiences we have ever had and so intend to return and stay longer.'

'We had a 9 day stay at Cleavers Lyng with our little son. The room was all we could hope for; big, clean and beautifully kept. The breakfast is of high quality. The service in general was more than expected. The owners are very helpful in every way possible. Cleavers Lyng is very idyllic placed in a quite part of the East Sussex country side, however it is not remote or disconnected from the rest of Sussex, which makes it a great place to stay and drive to what you may wish to see in Sussex. We would very much like to have another stay at Cleavers Lyng. Maybe next time it may just be mom and dad.'

The kids had their own beds (an extra double and a single), and their own TV! The Top room has a living space, which we didn't use, but would be handy for longer stays. Breakfast was really good, and they accommodated by wheat intolerance, by providing gluten free bread, and a fab gluten free banana cake!)'

Mini break at dog friendly guesthouse
5 stars 5

'Researched this Guest house specifically as we wanted to take our Border collie away with us. We were not disappointed. Ticked all the boxes for all of us. Beautiful building with history, great ambiance, clean, welcoming and relaxing. Despite the bath being on the small side in the French Room, the lovely smellies made for a relaxing time after a day of sight seeing. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, milk, coffee cream, sweets and bottled water replenished daily and towels changed every 2 days. There were areas of garden which our dog was positively invited to use whatever time of day/night. We had a front door key so no awkward seeking out owners to let us in and out. There is woods opposite the house (surrounding Herstmonceaux Castle) so we were able to start and finish our day with walking the dog without getting into the car. The breakfast was a truly relaxing and enjoyable event. Freshly cooked food from a good choice of menu. Sally was a perfect host, polite, friendly, competent, no intrusion and quick to tend to us. Another plus with Cleavers Lyng was allowing our dog to come to breakfast with us. Yes you need a car to get around to see the sights...Eastbourne, Lewes, Hastings, Battle, Beachy Head (all the places we visited) but returning to Cleavers Lyng in the evenings was something to look forward to. We had the French room which was wonderfully furnished in keeping with the period. (& allowed dogs in!) There is a choice of rooms and if ever we come back to these parts, we will certainly try all of them out.'

The hospitality tray was stocked to the brim! When we returned from our meal in the village we sat on a sofa by an open log fire with a bottle of wine and a book. A complete chill out. Breakfast was very good. We both had a superb full english breakfast but choices ranged from cereals, fresh fruit salad, homemade cakes and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs! Also unlimited coffee which pleased us. Bella, sat with us at breakfast and Sally gave her a treat while we were eating! There were numerous walks from the front gate and one led to Herstmonceux Castle. Beautifully kept house and gardens with excellent hosts.'

We and our chocolate labrador received a lovely warm welcome, enjoyed the comfortable and plentiful space in the upstairs suite and relished the delicious breakfasts each morning. I can't recommend Cleavers Lyng highly enough and will definately be telling my friends about it!'

'My wife and I stayed at Cleavers Lyng for our 25th Wedding anniversary and used it as our base for exploring the surrounding countryside. We had the "Sunny Room" which lived up to its name with dual aspect views over the lovely gardens and the south downs that allowed the September sun to flood in. The room was well appointed with nice luxury touches throughout and very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful and Sally was very friendly and helpful suggesting places to eat and providing a recommended taxi to get to and from the village if you wanted to have a drink or two (its @ 1.75miles from the house to the restaurants and pubs). We ate in the Sundial Restaurant (pre-booked) for our anniversary dinner and had one of the best meals ever. Overall a lovely few days spent in the Sussex countryside.'

A hidden gem!
5 stars 5

'We stayed here for a night while attending a wedding at the castle and church next door. How I managed to find this place at the last minute when the rest of the guests had to book hotels in, and travel back to Eastbourne will forever remain a mystery to me! - I was offered many times the price we paid to surrender this room during the reception but having seen the room, no amount of money could persuade me to! :) The entire experience was delightful - 2 minute walk to the wedding, a lovely spacious room and incredibly comfortable bedding (I NEED those pillows!) not to mention a delicious and obviously free range, no expense spared freshly cooked breakfast the next morning served by a friendly waitress! Bliss! We had a wander around the grounds after breakfast (Not sure if we were supposed to?!) and discovered an incredible vegetable patch out the back where the tomatoes and eggs we'd just eaten obviously came from. As an aspiring / not very successful gardener, I found it a treat to spend time in such a lovely productive and well maintained garden. We both agreed on the drive home that it was somewhere we'd love to return to, and that we felt we'd had a holiday almost from the hectic lives we live as 30-somethings back in London. If I have my way, we will return! :) Thanks for making us feel so welcome. Jen'

'We arrived at Cleavers Lyng feeling worn out and frazzled. We left 4 days later feeling all but reborn, thanks to the beautiful room, heavenly location, and exceptional hospitality. Doug and Sally even made sure our exuberant Shih Tzu had a wonderful time. He is now saving his pocket money for a return visit! He simply can't wait to go back - and nor can we. Our only possible criticism? The publicity materials actually sell the place short. It's even more charming than it looks.'

Breakfast was wonderful and we had two very comfortable nights stay. Thank you for all of your help (with taxis as well), Megan and Nick'

A Super Stay...
5 stars 5

'We, and our Beagle Yogi, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cleavers Lyng. Made welcome from the second we arrived the room, service and building was fantastic, with a very comfortable lounge area for those odd damp days. As for the garden views...superb. The whole area was far beyond our expectation as well, we usually head westwards to Devon, but this stay has completely altered our outlook east and we shall certainly come this way again...so much to do here. The breakfast was probably the best I've had anywhere and it was nice that well behaved dogs are allowed to accompany their owners at all times including at breakfast. On a wider basis the food available for evening meals at local pubs (The Merrie Harriers and The Horse & Groom warrant a particular mention for the friendly welcome of the staff and wonderful menus) is great. All in all we would heartily recommend Cleavers Lyng and surrounding area...'

Wonderful Retreat

'Cleavers Lyng is a haven of peace well off the beaten track. The accomodation is a wonderful old building full of character and situated in an extremely secluded spot near the foot of a quiet country lane. The views are stunning across a landscape which must be largely unchanged over tha past few hundred years. The upkeep of the beautifully kept gardens must be a full time job for someone. The accomodation is clean and comfortable with an excellent choice of breakfast menu. The hosts and staff are friendly and helpful.'

'We loved Cleavers Ling. A beautiful house with an uninterrupted view across the South Downs. Quality accommodation with all the little extrasneeded, and discreet good service. We bought our small well behaved dog who was made welcome too. For non dog owners you would be pleased to know that the rooms were immaculate and clean with no sign of dogs being allowed. Will definitely return and have already told my friends about it.'

Relaxation
5 stars 5

'My wife and I had the good fortune to stay at Cleavers Lyng whilst on business in the area. We stayed in a "French-themed" room, which was absolutely wonderful, and it had the most comfortable bed in the universe. The house and grounds are beautiful, and the owners charming and very accomodating. We had a meal at the Indian Restaurant in the village, which was excellent and good value for money, and a few pints of cider at the Brewers pub, again which was an excellent pub with a great village atmosphere, friendly and welcoming. After half an hour we had become locals, and had a great night. In all I would rate this venue as one of the best i have stayed in for many a year. We wanted a relaxing weekend, with good food, good beer, nice surroundings and a plush place to rest our heads. I'm happy to say we found it all at Cleavers Lyng.'
