“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2011

What more can I say that hasn't already been said about this absolute stunner of a B&B? There aren't enought superlatives to describe the wonderful, kind, thoughtful, considerate hosts that are Wendy and David, not to mention their lovely staff.

Wendy very kindly booked us into two separate restaurants on consecutive nights and very kindly dropped us off at the first one - the Italian previously mentioned by other reviewers - as it was in town. What service! The restaurant is also highly recommended as it too has very high levels of service, and very agreeable staff. Wendy also indulged us in light and amusing conversation at breakfast, which was much appreciated as we were the only guests over the weekend in question, probably due to its proximity to xmas (i.e. the weekend before).

We will definitely be returning in the not too distant future, hopefully to see the garden in all of its glory.Thanks you Wendy & David :-)

Room Tip: Be sure to make use of the 10% reduction on your bill at the Italian restaurant recommended by the h...

We stayed at Ocklynge Manor B&B for a couple of nights mid-December to do a bit of walking and could have easily stayed longer. The house is absolutely lovely - very warm, welcoming, and peaceful. Wendy and David are great hosts - friendly and helpful.

If you want a break from London but don't want to travel far, this is the place for you.

Beautiful house with sizeable gardens. We were welcomed with lemon cake and tea, and Wendy was even kind enough to drop us off in town for dinner. (We ate at a lovely Italian restaurant and got 10% off of our bill for being Ocklynge Manor customers). The bed was warm and comfortable, and we really enjoyed our breakfasts (including home-made bread and jam, alongside a full spread) the next morning. We came for a one night stay and regretted having to leave so soon. Definitely one of the top B&Bs we've ever stayed at.

Our weekend holiday at Ocklynge Manor was so perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Wendy and David made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through the door, and provided so many helpful tips to make our trip more enjoyable (including an excellent Italian restaurant recommendation). The gardens are exquisite and we spent many hours walking around after breakfast and before dinner. The location is great for exploring the area, perfect for Beachy Head as well as Glyndebourne. We will most definitely be back and we will send all of our friends!

Unexpected visit to Eastbourne to visit a relative in hospital - picked Ocklynge out of Tripadvisor and luckily a room was available. From first contact, Wendy and David could not have been more helpful - and the beautiful gardens, great breakfasts and local advice made the whole experience really enjoyable. A little gem of a place and a real find, fully deserving its rating.
