5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Superb rural getaway
Secluded cottage behind the Dorset Arms, in the grounds of the Buckhurst Park estate. Large, tastefully-decorated rooms, peace and quiet, and sweeping views. Food excellent. Parking also very easy and convenient. Plenty of good walking routes in the Ashdown Forest a short drive away.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
We booked two twin rooms which were situated right above the actual pub (which we were not aware of). We have two young kids who could not rest and we all had a terrible nights sleep. It was extremely loud and noisy and the set up was not family friendly at all. The water flush in the toilet of the shared bathroom was not functioning properly. The staff room was next to our rooms so we heard a lot of service personnel walking along the hallway and getting stuff from that room. We had to request to be moved to other rooms which were a lot more expensive. We were not offered a discount and were still charged for the first night. Very disappointed about this. The rooms generally looked very clean but we found marks on the linen and the bath robes. The staff were friendly. If you book I would definitely recommend to ask whether the rooms you are considering are in the Cottage or above the Pub.
