“This is a B&B for people who would not normally enjoy staying in a B&B. It is a Grade II listed manor house, furnished as such (oil paintings, antique furniture) and set in a large and beautiful garden with hard tennis court and heated swimming pool. Only three bedrooms (two with baths, one shower). The feeling of being a friend rather than a customer will be heightened if you have dinner in, as can be arranged. Sarah Burgoyne is a passionate French-trained cook. The honey served with her famous breakfasts comes from the beehives in the orchard. And she will make you a picnic hamper if asked; perfect for Glyndebourne which is only 10 minutes away. A special place.”
