“Lovely house, great pool!”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Nice house and very comfortable. We was blessed with amazing weather so the pool was a godsend :)
Property owner was very nice and helpful. Some more sunbeds around the pool would have been great as there were 6 of us and only 3 beds.
House furnishings were a little dated, ie furniture and carpets, but perfectly liveable.
East Dean is a lovely little village with a good pub, The Tiger Inn, which serves good beer and good food for a reasonable price.
Would highly recommend this property. We will be back.

Thank you so much for findting time for a review and lovely to hear that you enjoyed yourself so much at The Spinney.
The pool is fab isn't it and the location takes some beating - country walks or along the cliffs - joyous!
I will talk to the owner regarding extra sunbeds - there are usually extras stored in the sun house and we want to ensure everyone can top up their tans :)

“Beautiful house in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a fabulous week at The Spinney. The house and grounds are stunning. The beds and bed linen luxurious. The pool warm and inviting. The BBQ a triumph. Spacious and comfy rooms. Splendid dining room. Close to many great towns, villages, walks, beaches and pubs.
All three generations of our family group would recommend a stay at the Spinney.

Lovely to hear that your extended family had such a great time at The Spinney and enjoyed the house, the warm swimming pool and stunning grounds.
The owners really do take great pride in providing everything to a very high standard.
I hope we can help you again

“Fabulous family home with beautiful gardens”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed for a few nights at the end March/beginning April 2013. Travelled with a 6 month old baby and two older children. Booking was easy, provision of cot and high chair very helpful. The house was large, decorated nicely and comfortably, but not so posh that we spent our whole time worrying about the children making a dirty mark! The gardens are lovely and huge and perfect for the children playing out. The pool was not in use as it was too cold/early in the year, but I'd imagine it would be fantastic when it was available. Kitchen had lots of utensils and crockery.

Booking process and deposit return was problem-free. Highly recommended

Hi there and thanks for such a lovely review.
Great to hear that you and your family enjoyed the house and the gardens.
The owners have tried to make it very liveable - thinking of the practicalities as well as the fab swimming pool which always goes down very well in the warmer months - I hope you get the chance to come back in the warmer months :)

“Great house for our family”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Would definitely recommend the house for family gatherings - bags of space, garden and obviously the pool (not huge but great fun with the children). Professional booking service through Sarah - very helpful answering questions.

Hello and thanks for finding time for the review.
We're so pleased The Spinney worked for your family break - I thought the space would be great for you to catch up and the setting takes some beating doesn't it?!
Thanks again
