Guestbook comments from the owner

Booking this house was one of the best ideas we ever had. The house itself was quite awesome, the garden was great to spend time in the sun or have a lunch/dinner with the whole family in. A big thanks to Mike!. The equipment of the house is really great. We are sure we will come back again!

An outstanding holiday house with a fantastic hill view, very good positioned for trips to the surrounding area, well-maintained as it should be. An absolutely recommendable place!

The owner is extremely nice and helpful. Mike, your kind customer service was fabulous, thank you very much for this. We will surely recommend your house to our friends!

Lovely, spacious bungalow set in beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was a home from home with everything with could possibly need. The beds were extremely comfortable and the window seat in the master bedroom, with views overlooking Newhaven, was a lovely surprise. There are plenty of seats dotted around the beautiful gardens and wrought iron table and chairs for that spot of alfresco dining. There is also stuff in the shed but we didn't use this.

All in all, a very enjoyable holiday - even the weather was kind.

I would recommend Seaford beach (pebbles) if you are looking for free parking away from the crowds as you can park on the front.

I would highly recommend this holiday accommodation 😎

Owner's Response: Karen and I are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay and hope you will come again. Seaford Bay and beach and Seaford Head are very pictuesque. There is a fantastic view of the beach, and also of Newhaven Marina and the River Ouse where it meets the English Channel, from the cliff top where Newhaven Fort is situated. The parking area adjacent to the pebble beach at Newhaven costs £2 per day and is much used by anglers.

Maison adorable - impeccable - très confortable

  • 5 of 5

A tous les français qui souhaitent venir chez Mike, allez y de bon coeur, la maison est spacieuse, très bien agencée, impeccable, cuisine plus qu'équipée pour faire de bons plats, jardin très beau, à 5 mn de la mer et du débarquement en arrivant de Dieppe. Proche de Londres et position centrale pour visiter le sud de l'angleterre. Mike a été charmant, belles attentions à notre arrivée (sapin de noel et décoration pour que nous puissions passer noel comme à la maison et c'était le cas). Bonne adresse à garder et à recommander.

Nous étions 4 (2 adultes et 2 enfants) en provenance de Provence.

PS : ce n'est pas un bungalow (ca veut dire de pleins pied en anglais), bien équipée pour des personnes a mobilité réduite

location ++++

The bungalow is well equipped,the owner having considered every need.It was really clean and tidy,the beds were comfortable and the bed lined of good quality.

The garden was delightful with lovely plants as well as a nice outside seating area.We could not fault the accommodation at all.The area is a working town so not a tourist spot ,we drove to places of interest and there are good transport links,especially the bus.We didn't eat out in Newhaven,so can't pass on any recommendations.

Agree indeed with all previous reviews!!

  • 5 of 5

10 jours passés dans cette très agréables maison en briques (ne pas en rester au terme de "bungalow", inapproprié en français). Maison bien plus grande que les photos ne le suggèrent, tout le reste est parfaitement conforme à l'impression dégagée par les photos. Grandes et lumineuses pièces, cuisine et équipement magnifiques pour qui - comme nous - aime cuisiner, sur le jardin. Ce dernier est extrêmement bien entretenu, beaucoup de petits recoins tranquilles et sans aucun vis-à-vis. Nous confirmons les petits renards le soir! Charming. Très calme. Bien situé un peu en retrait du centre cette petite ville de Neaheaven m
