A spacious guesthouse with all mod cons set in 68 acres of ancient woodland and farmland in the stunning Mid Sussex countryside, close to the villages of Fletching and Newick. . A short drive to three country pubs, one gastro pub, tandoori restaurant, village bakery and shops. Great base for exploring Sussex - 15 minutes to Lewes, 30 minutes from Brighton; 2 minutes to Sheffield Park and Bluebell Railway, Borde Hill, Glyndebourne, Ashdown Forest and The South Downs a short drive away.

The space

Badgers Rest is one of two semi-detached cottages which were converted from original farm buildings 10 years ago. Having been recently refurbished, they offer stylish and comfortable guest accommodation. The cottage is located on River Farm which is currently being used as a livery yard. Clean well behaved dogs are welcome. Horses are welcome by separate negotiation to be housed in stables or field.

Interior space contains two large leather sofas, dining table, comfortable beds with memory foam toppers, down or hypoallergenic pillow and quilts, pure Egyptian cotton bedding and shower room. You will find a welcome pack of a selection of teas and coffee and a jug of milk in the fridge. I also provide soap and shower gel and lots of soft fluffy towels to make your traveling lighter.

Guest access

There is a washing machine for sole use of guests in the cottage. A tumble dryer and washing line are available for use situation in a separate building.

Interaction with guests

We live next door and are on hand to make recommendations and help where necessary.

Other things to note

Badgers Rest is situation down a short private country lane. Ample free parking can be found directly outside the property.

If you are arriving late, I am more than happy to stock the fridge with your choice of produce from the local farm shop and bakery (at an extra cost).

It is a lovely place, surrounded by nature and beautiful horses. The house is very comfy and had everything we needed. Michele is very kind and made sure everything is fine. We arrived late night, so we got a bit lost. So, it's better if you can go during the day.

Michele is very nice and friendly, there are lots of beautiful horses around and the dogs are shy but very friendly. We had a warm greeting and Michele showed us around and she also left us a unexpected welcome basket in the kitchen with different types of teas and coffee. Also sone shortbread biscuts and milk which was so lovely. If you are going very soon there is road works going into town at the end of Newick hill lane so if you go up to the two mini roundabout's and do a left u can still go to places like Uckfield or Lewes just follow it down until you get to a main roundabout then follow the signs. The Bluebell Railway is well worth a visit starts from Sheffield Park Station and is a lovely 90 train ride through the country side. Sheffield Park Gardens is also worth a look with beautiful grounds big ponds/lakes and waterfalls. If you are going with children there is a great indoors play area in Tonbridge called Wear Them Out I highly recommend it. It's clean fun and good value for money, there is food and drink sold on site which is reasonably priced.

Highly recommended stay. Michele is a great host and we really enjoyed our mini break. Great base to explore local venues such as Sheffield Park, Wakehurst or drive down to the coast. Thanks again :)

We are happy to recommend Badgers Rest. Michele was very welcoming, the house was quite, comfortable and well equipped, and the beds were unbelievably comfortable. The kids (aged 4, 7 and 9) enjoyed being on a farm and visiting the beautiful horses. You need a car to get to Newick, but it's a short drive away.

A dog friendly cottage with charm. Michele welcomed my partner and I and recommended a fantastic gastro pub only a 10 min drive away. You will need a car but pubs and shops are a very short drive away. The accommodation is on a farm but it's quiet. The bed was amazing, beautiful bed linen and so comfortable. Plenty of clean towels and added extras like shower gel, teas and coffee and even a jug of milk in the fridge for us all meant a lot. Wifi was excellent! We will be back :-)

I have a passion for horses and currently have 4 of my own. I love to keep busy and always have a project on the go. I live and work at the farm but like to go out in the evenings to the gym or a local pub, we have some excellent ones around here. I have two small dogs, Badger a…
