  • "We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay."

    The cottage is very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen and has a very pretty outside sitting area. The decor is much more contemporary/modern than the photos show. The shower is excellent. We’ll located for days out to local National Trust properties and Bolney Wine estate. Many thanks.

    The cottage would benefit from some TLC, a good deep clean is needed and redecoration required.

    We enjoyed the roaming pheasants, male and female, who seemed to own an area close to our cottage. The hosts were very friendly but non-intrusive. We had a great week.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Willow cottage."

    It was lovely and warm and comfortable for the whole week even though the weather outside was not kind. The cottage was very central to the area we wanted to visit but out in the country where we like to be. It was very easy to find. The whole house was well appointed with everything we needed. The only drawback was the intermittent internet but we managed to cope. There was reasonable wifi that we could receive the internet on instead. Christine and Allan were very nice hosts and made us very welcome. We highly recommend Willow Cottage.

About the location


Hickstead 4 miles; Brighton 11 miles; Lewes 15 miles.

Bolney is a pretty village in the heart of Sussex, perfectly located for visits to both the east and west of the county. Set to the west of the main A23 dual carriageway which runs from London to Brighton, this quiet part of a rural landscape offers much more than can be seen at first sight. Bolney can trace its history back to Saxon times and still has many timber-framed houses dating back to the 16th century. The All England Jumping Course at Hickstead is an equestrian sport centre only 4 miles from Bolney, principally known for its show jumping and dressage activities. As well as lots of outdoor activities and pursuits, Bolney also has its own award-winning winery that offers guided tours and tastings; just the place to choose a bottle of wine to complement that special dinner! This part of Sussex is perfect when looking to explore; after all, you can be in London in less than 45 minutes, standing by the shore in less than 20 minutes or drinking coffee in France in just over 90 minutes - not many locations can offer so much in a day!
