This is what a great B'nB is all about. We stayed here after visiting the local vineyard for a wine tour. It is situated in a gorgeous little village close to Haywards Heath. The room we stayed in was spacious and very comfortable. My wife and I had an excellent night's sleep. The bathroom was also a highlight with free...

We found The Eight Bells at Bolney by chance, and we are very glad that we did! The welcome from Sue was wonderful and she looked after us extremely well. We had the whitebait as a shared starter, followed by the mussels and the sea bass. The food was exceptional. The fish was so fresh and beautifully cooked, and the...

You can see why you might have a problem to get a booking here as it is a truly delightful B&B. Michaela and her team are so welcoming.

Fabulous B&B in picturesque village of Bolney, across from historic church. Beautifully appointed room with large en-suite bathroom with free-standing tub. Bar food and breakfast both fantastic. Personal touch of the staff was the cherry on top, everyone we dealt with from registration to bar staff to our entertaining breakfast server was warm, welcoming and chatty.
