    Some wonderful places to visit for national trust and many other attractions in the area. Will definitely visit again next spring.

  • "Although attached to the owner's house it felt surprisingly secluded and private."

    The facilities were good but we found the beds too firm and on one bed the mattress buttons could be felt. (Memory Foam topper would be a great improvement) All in all a great location for exploring the South Coast and extremely good value for a normally expensive area. We used it as a base for visiting family.

  • "This has got to be one of the best Sykes properties we've ever stayed in, both for location (close to everything) and friendliness of the owners Nigel and Shirley."

    A thoughtful touch was the provision of tea, coffee and milk for a welcome cuppa when we arrived, much appreciated after a long journey! The Annexe had everything we coud have wanted, a real home from home, small but perfect for two people. Thank you Nigel and Shirley!

  • "The annexe was very clean and comfortable."

    It contained all that we needed in a compact and well designed space. There are walks to be had on the South Downs from the door. It is a convenient location for visiting Brighton, Littlehampton and lots of places along the south coast. It was a very enjoyable week with very pleasant weather.

  • "Generally, the property was good, as was the layout and location."

    The garden and views from the rear very good. The access is steep, but is well protected from rain and the elements by an ingenious awning. The only mentionable problem we found was the internal step from the kitchen to the dining room. At 9" in height, it makes carrying hot food/drinks awkward, possibly messy! There is adequate space for a sub-step to be installed here, which would improve the situation considerably. With this matter addressed, we would happily recommend this property.

  • "The Annexe was exactly as described."

    It had all the kitchen equipment we needed, adequate space for eating and watching TV, and a comfortable bed. The only extra thing I would ask for is a bread knife! Shirley and Nigel made us feel very welcome and I enjoyed sitting in their garden with the beautiful flowers.

  • "The annexe was perfect for our holiday, conveniently located for trips in different directions and also walking distance from the Downs, so we were able to enjoy a walk on the evening of our arrival and view a beautiful sunset."

    The hosts were very helpful, generous and made us feel welcome, leaving some essentials in the fridge and cupboards to make things easier. They allowed us to share their lovely garden with a view over Lancing to the sea beyond. We had a fantastic week, walking on the Downs, visiting gardens and seeing friends. There was too much to do in one week and we hope one day to return.

    Lovely garden, although we didn’t take full advantage of that. Very private, even though attached to the owner’s property. Owners very helpful.

  • "The accommodation was extremely well designed with access to their garden."

    It was spotlessly clean, and well provided - the extras were very much appreciated. The location was within a few minutes walk of the countryside leading onto the South Downs and yet only a couple of miles from the beach and promenade. Nigel & Shirley were very welcoming and helpful.

  • "This apartment was just fabulous."

    It was extremely clean and homely. The hosts had supplied coffee, tea, sugar, fruit, milk and orange juice and shower gel which was not expected, but much appreciated. There were also fluffy bathrobes to borrow and slippers. A heated towel rail and heating in the apartment was also very welcome, as well as use of a washing machine and dryer. Every type of cooking implement and dish was also supplied if you fancied cooking. The hosts were welcoming but not intrusive. Would highly recommend this apartment. Really enjoyed staying here.

  • "We received a warm welcome from the owner on arrival."

    There was no mention of the steps leading down to the property! The directions to the property where muddling but we mentioned this to the owner and he said he will clarify those with your office. The accommodation is below the main house and the family are unaware of the noise they make overhead of their paying guests.
