Holiday cottage, Lower Beeding, West Sussex
"The cottage was indeed almost perfect. The proximity to the wedding venue was ideal and the cottage itself was very lovely. It was very thoughtful to have provided some basics i.e. Milk, juice and a very nice cake. I have only one negative thing to say and I believe it is "fixable" and that is the shower in the ensuite bathroom is in need of a really good clean - it was quite disgusting! Overall it was a most enjoyable stay and I would certainly recommend it and not hesitate to stay there again."
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review for The Bothy Cottage. We would also like to apologise for the shower and we will ensure this does not happen again.
Short stay to attend wedding
"Stayed at Bothy Cottage for 3 days while attending a wedding to adjoining South Lodge hotel. Cottage in located a stones throw away. Cottage is spot on has everything and even more than you need to enjoy your stay"
Great family break
"The cottage itself is amazing, we all wanted to move in! It was clean, the beds were big and comfy and those of us with small children were thrilled by the quality of the curtains (properly dark!) The hotel grounds were an unexpected delight, great for walks followed by drinks on the terrace. We loved the coffee machine and there was a great selection of toiletries. Some of the family made good use of the hotel gym, a great facility."
Great for a large group
"Group of nine stayed for four nights. Cottage well appointed with everything you need and the provision of bread, tea, coffe etc was very welcome. Beds were very comfortable and lots of towels provided as well as toiletries. Large garden which was well kept and lots of room for sitting outside. Only issue we had was the poor water pressure when showering if someone turned on a tap and the shower in the master ensuite bedrrom dripped water all the time and especially if water was being used elsewhere in the house. Did not need to contact hotel during stay but surprised that when I returned the keys I was not asked if everything had been satisfactory. Cottage is old and no double glazing etc but reasonably warm despite that. Could do with a little TLC in places like window frames etc but overall I would happily recommend."
Three families with kids
"We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend at the Bothy Cottage. There was plenty of space for all of us and the garden was ideal for the kids who were aged between 22 months and 10 years old. It was brilliant to be able to roam in the hotel grounds which are stunning with lots of variety - a pond, some woodland, a huge lawn with slopes to run up and down, a tree swing and some rough grass. The men loved the pub, the ladies loved the hotel bar. The bedrooms were really lovely, particularly the spacious king size ones which the adults had and the hotel standard linens were a treat. The cottage was fairly well equipped and the things that were not there were not critical - next time we will bring our own veg peeler and sharp knives. We brought all our own games for the kids. The hotel was happy to lend us extra towels and soaps. The reception and wifi were too feeble to use but luckily we had a Bluetooth speaker and some downloaded music. A gorgeous place, I hope we can go there again."
A Family get together
"We wanted somewhere affordable to gather as an extended family. This was excellent, we were well looked after, the grounds provided some pleasant strolls, the gym was a bonus and beautiful countryside is not far away. although managed by a hotel (hence wonderful service) the cottage felt separate with own garden and exit roads."
"A fabulous cottage and location for a beautiful getaway weekend. Bedrooms are amazing and such comfortable beds!! My only suggestion would be to have more sofas as there were only two sofas but with ten people accommodated there. There is a 10 seat dining table and massive kitchen which was great. Pub in walking distance and generally fabulous area. Highly recommend. "

The living space is spacious with a lounge and completely separate dining room that overlooks the private garden. The kitchen features an Aga in addition to a conventional oven and hob. A great kitchen to plan that special meal!
This is a beautiful area in the heart of Sussex. There are uninterrupted views south from the grounds of the hotel towards the South Downs. Devil's Dyke in fact is little more than eight miles to the south via the picturesque small market town of Henfield.
To walk or cycle south along The Downs Link path from the old railway station at West Grinstead towards Henfield is a delight and you are soon enjoying beautiful views of the Downs as you head south.
Four miles to the north of Bothy Cottage, Horsham is a fine historic market town which features four historic areas, Bishopric, Carfax, Causeway and Normandy — names believed to be almost unique to the town. The Causeway is a tree lined avenue with medieval and period properties that leads down to the parish church of St Mary’s and Normandy, a quiet area found beside the church while the Carfax, originally a meeting of four ways, is now a relaxing place to stop and enjoy a coffee.
To the south east of the town and surrounding the Mannings Heath Golf Club, St Leonard's Forest is the most westerly remaining of the large forests which once formed a continuous tract across the central Wealden ridge of Sussex. Iron smelting was carried out in the Weald, and Sussex had the ingredients required — easily obtainable iron ore, timber and water. Known as ’hammer ponds’ these ponds can be seen around Mannings Heath and nearby Bucks Head. Today they appear as picturesque lakes within a wooded setting while the forest is now a patchwork of woodlands and heath covering 12 square miles affording many excellent walking opportunities.
Both Nymans Gardens and High Beeches Garden, two great gardens in the Sussex High Weald are within a ten minute drive and display a variety of colour and texture along with outstanding views to the south.
