“You could not dream of better”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday NEW
Even before I arrived I was given a much appreciated experience of Carol’s care for her guests. Having to take a break from driving due to migraine, I sent a text concerning my new eta, and the kindness in the response actually took me by surprise! While staying at Beechwood in my all too short break (to go to Glyndebourne ), I really did forget I was a paying client and truly felt like a much cared for friend. Every little detail, from slippers, hair drier, superb choice of teas, little torch by the bed, super telly, and much more, had been thought of. Carol was there to welcome me at arrival and made me a pot of tea even though I had the most magnificent tea tray in my room. She was there again to welcome me back from the opera and sounded genuinely interested to hear how I had enjoyed it. My bed was something else! I have never, in all my travels, been in such a wonderfully comfortable, perfectly soft yet supporting, superb bed! It was amazing. The only thing that got me out was Ceri’s wonderful breakfast, and what a choice on the menu! Then there was my bathroom. Wow! This was palatial! It even had a panoramic view of the splendid grounds (garden is a mealy mouthed word for the land behind the house). Again, everything was there, beyond my expectations, and the towels.. Phew, you could suffocate in them! Best I’ve ever experienced. I can’t believe that even the showers in the Savoy could be better than the one I had at Beechwood.
Beechwood is ideally set to reach all the lovely places in Sussex. There is a good affordable restaurant in walking distance.
But the magic ingredient is the real care and genuine concern for her guests’ comfort and happiness that Carol and Ceri give. There is nothing intrusive or too concerned about it. It is something you can’t buy and cannot fake. Carol is far too good for the small minded backbiting and bug hunting of “4 in a Bed”. Her sincere concern to give the best possible care to everyone under her roof is what sets Carol in a league of her own. A stay at Beechwood is simply wonderful.

Room Tip: I think they are all good

Glyndebourne 2016 has started:

This weekend we had a lot of guests who were excited to be attending the opening night of Die Meisteringer von Nurnberg. Grippingly original. Wagner puts singing and songwriting centre stage in Glyndebournes biggest production EVER.

My guests all got dressed up for the first performance, packing their champagne and picnic and hoping for good weather. Unfortunately the weather was rather unpredictable sun, rain , heavy rain and then sunshine.

Well another fabulous performance leaving my guests spellbound by the Meistersinger.

The next morning they all sat around the breakfast table at Beechwood discussing the performance, excited exchanging views.

Beechwood B and B is literally 9 minutes from door to door. Looking for luxury accommodation where we offer the finest choices in Breakfast and coffees.

We had an amazingly well equipped room – everything you could think of in the bedroom and bathroom. Very quiet and peaceful room (Ruby) and had a great nights sleep. Ceri and Carol were very friendly and gave us a great recommendation for dinner. ( The Cock ) Breakfast was superb with an amazing choice.

Pevensey Castle East Sussex.

One of the joys of life here in East Sussex is witnessing the many attractions the county has to offer. Countless National Trust properties, the stunning South Downs, an awe-inspiring Seven Sisters/Beachy Head coastline and an array of world-renowned historical venues are a constant draw to visitors and locals alike.

Pevensey Castle, an English Heritage property, demonstrates perfectly the depth of historical content and wonderful scenery. Situated just outside Eastbourne and a maximum drive of 30 minutes from us at Beechwood, Pevensey Castle sits amongst lush green pastures, quaint historical cottages and overlooks the sea. The castle nestles within ruined town walls that are beloved to date back to times of Roman occupation. Visitors are able to walk between the Roman walls and at ultimately find the beautiful village of Westham, with 15th century cottages. The castle itself was built by William The Conqueror in 1066 as a base camp after his troops landed there and after paying your entrance fee, the sense of being taken back to the Norman invasion is palpable. The car park costs just £2 for the whole day, allowing you to visit the town of Pevensey, with its array of eating places, coffee shops or simply stroll along the beach.

 

It really is worth a visit, especially on a warm, sunny Spring or Summer day. To allow yourself the opportunity, why not stay here at Beechwood to give your visit completion.

 

Sussex countryside/Seven Sisters

Why not stroll along the South Downs, these magnificent chalk hills  with the sea beneath.

You can have a short stroll or if you are a serious walker the South Downs has something for everybody.From Birling Gap you get a breathtaking view of the Seven Sisters stretching all the way to Cuckmere Haven. you have access to the beach either at Birling Gap or Seaford Head. The views are astounding and the peace and tranquility is something you want to bottle.Beechwood B and B is  only a 25 minute drive to Alfriston where you can drive through the village and onto Birling Gap. You can jump on an open top bus in Eastbourne which stops all the way along , drop offs and pick ups. The seven sisters are eroding rapidly – so please stay safe and away from the Cliffe edges.

Stunning Beachy Head

Just a twenty minute drive from Beechwood B and B  to the stunning South Downs .

National ParkVisit Beachy Head cliffs in Eastbourne. The UK’s highest chalk sea cliff features at the western end of Eastbourne seafront in the new South Downs National Park and Seven Sisters Country Park. Visit the lighthouse, Beachy Head Countryside Centre, Beachy Head pub or take a boat trip to the iconic Beachy Head light house.

The Arlington Woods with a stunning carpet of bluebells.

IMG_2234We visited the woods at Arlington on the weekend, Amazing aromas and the blue carpet with the sun shining on the woods was stunning.
Since 1972 the Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail has developed into seven interesting walks over three working farms.

One of the walks of 2/3 mile (1100 meters) through Beatons Wood has been made suitable for wheelchair users. This is where you see white anemones followed by the vistas of bluebells, established over centuries. On this walk there are seats for you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this oak and hornbeam wood. Along the walks there are signs illustrating the flora and fauna of the countryside for your information.

At neighbouring Parkwood Farm, milking of the large dairy herd can be seen from a special viewing gallery every afternoon between 3:00pm and 5:00pm. To get there involves a walk of about 1.5 miles, and you will have to walk back!

We have pens of sheep, pigs and angora goats for the children to see close to, but remember, pigs can bite! Ensure children wash their hands thoroughly with warm water and soap at the adjoining sink if they do stroke any of the animals.
