Beechwood Tripadvisor review

Finches
“A really excellent, personal service!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday NEW
We stayed at Beechwood for our trip to see Carmen at Glyndebourne. Carol and Ceri gave a superb personal and friendly service – staying at Beechwood combines really high standards of service with a sense of being guests in their home. If you prefer the personal touch to the anonymity of a hotel then Beechwood is the place for you. The rooms are very comfortable, thoughtfully equipped and the bathrooms are excellent. The breakfast is lovely with great choices of freshly cooked options. For Glyndebourne visitors, Carol and Ceri offer transportation door to door at times to suit you. A fantastic couple of days made special by Beechwood – definitely our first port of call when we visit Glyndebourne again!

New Tripadvisor review

WOW! Attention to detail!!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday NEW
I have stayed in a lot of places, lots of B&B’s too, but this place is tops. Not just the welcome and really nice folks, but overall everything is just right. Ceri and Carol have a beautifully decorated home, I have to admit that the missus and I have some good ideas now on what to do in our place ;-) And they have though of everything, seems more like a hotel than B&B – slippers, so plush bathrobe, soft towels, toiletries in the bathroom, a cup of tea on arriving.

Oh yeah, breakfast was great. I seem to have trouble making a hollandaise sauce, so Eggs Benedict ….. YES PLEASE! With some fresh fruit and pastries and more in the solarium. Sipping coffee on the terrace (which let me play with the dogs ) is an awesome way to start the day. so thank you Ceri and Carol, your little haven let us enjoy a nice weekend in sussex (in spite of the missus bonking on the bike ride).

Stayed June 2015, travelled as a couple

South Downs bed and breakfast near Halland, East Sussex

We are in the heart of East Sussex, close to historical town of Lewes, Glyndebourne, Eastbourne, Brighton and airports. Fantastic National Trust properties within 30 minute drive. There are plenty of walks all over the South Downs and you can visit Alfriston; the eastern gateway to South Downs National Park. We really believe in attention to detail in everything we do – to give the customer an experience that they will enjoy.

We’re helping to make it easier for our guests to leave their car at home, or if they have driven to us, have car free days once here, by offering travel information and alternative transport services to get you to and around the South Downs National Park.

Reaching us by bus and train is simple and we can help you plan your car-free days, with many accessible key walking, cycling and horse-riding routes. You can read full details of what we can offer elsewhere on this page – or simply ask us! We’re happy to help you discover another way to explore the South Downs.

-One double en-suite overlooking the front of the house.

-One double room with private bathroom that overlooks the front of the house.

Responsible travel: South Downs bed and breakfast near Halland, East Sussex
Environment
The bed and breakfast holds a Silver Award with Green Tourism and has made a serious commitment to ensure that its operations have a positive impact on the environment. We make sure to operate our business in an environmentally sensitive way, ensuring that all environmental legislation applies.

We are also becoming a more eco friendly B&B with a variety of green policies that we follow and also have information about being green available to our customers.

To save on electricity we have power saving lights throughout, buy A rated appliances, lights outside are on a sensor or are solar powered. We also have power downs fitted to TVs and computers so even if they are left on standby they will turn off completely after 30 seconds.

We save on water by having green laundry practices; with signs in rooms to encourage guests to decide when they need bedding and towels changed; using the most water efficient cycle on our washing machine; have water butts at the front and back of the house for watering gardens and we have signs in all the rooms to encourage guests to be conscious of water too.

For heat saving we make sure to maintain our boiler, have thermostatic controls fitted to all radiators and we also have a wood burner in the lounge. We have had double glazing installed downstairs, triple glazing upstairs and roof insulation and high levels of insulation throughout the property to keep in the heat.

We try to save on paper by doing everything we can electronically (We have a downloadable brochure), using less paper in marketing and buying recycled toilet paper.

We make sure to recycle everything that isn’t re-useable and monitor waste; paper; plastic; glass; cardboard; electrical items and mobile phones. We have bins in the rooms and these are emptied in accordance with recycling. We also make sure to use re-chargeable batteries.

We try to encourage people to use local transport; either buses or trains, or of course walking and cycling and we have information about public transport and local walks. We have information about cycle hire and can suggest lots of car-free activities.

We encourage wildlife into our garden; all the trees we have planted are to encourage wildlife and have bird feed in various places. The garden is mulched every year using recycled woodchips and we’ve used old railway sleepers to extend our decking. We also have birds that nest in our letterbox every year so we encourage the postman not to use is so that they are not disturbed.

Natural products used for cleaning, we are total non smoking household and we make sure to use raw materials for any work that we do.
Community
Buying locally and supporting local shops and farms is high priority at the B&B. All of our products are sourced locally, and we encourage guests to visit our local farm shops and spend money. We have regular farmers markets in our local towns and encourage our guests to visit them. Local jams are something that our guests also love to buy from us. We also inform our guests of places to buy local books that have history of the area.

We totally support our local community and beautiful countryside. We offer summer jobs to young people with a good wage and fair working conditions.

I like to recommend the local pubs that I know they will provide the whole pub experience with amazing food and hopefully they will pass this onto their friends. Some good ones to mention are Halfway House, The Old Ship, The Cock and The Kings Head. I’d also suggest heading to Lewes for a good meal at Bill’s cafe/restaurant.
Landscape
The South Downs National Park is not far from the B&B and I try my best inform all of my guests about the area and provide leaflets on our local landscapes. The area nearby is close to the South Downs Way and the trip up to Firle Beacon is particularly nice. With the fields of calk downland leading up to a beautiful view and sheep and cattle grazing over spring and summer. There are often skylarks flying overhead and you can hear them calling as them fall from the sky. You can see Mount Caburn opposite and Black Cap in the distance.

We like to chat with our guests about East Sussex and help them have a really enjoyable stay in Sussex and take away the memories that we shared. We make sure promote historical sites, walks exploring the woodlands.

There is so much to explore in East Sussex and if you don’t have enough time to see everything we encourage our guests to come back so they are able to visit other beautiful places at a later date. We hold lots of books as reference in our reception areas that we encourage guests to use and all or the guest bedrooms have folders containing all the local knowledge of when and where to visit.

We encourage guests to use the Cuckmere cycle paths that can take you all the way down to the coast.
