Riverdale House
Ranked #2 of 6 Alfriston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2016

Stayed in the Cuckmere room for 2 nights, large and comfortable room overlooking the Cuckmere Valley. Richard and Judy are really welcoming hosts and in addition to providing quality B & B they also allow use of the dining room, incl the microwave, should you wish to bring in your own food in the evening. Fridge to store drinks too. Really useful if you've had a busy day and don't feel up to dining in the village. A suggested improvement would be the provision of two comfortable chairs in the room in order to appreciate more fully the view over the valley. All in all a really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Worth paying for a room with a view over the valley.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights staying at The Riverdale B & B in Alfriston.

The is house very attractive set on the side of a hill overlooking the valley. It is surrounded by lovely gardens & plenty of off road car parking space.

We were made very welcome by Richard who gave us a great deal of information on the area. Suggesting all sorts of places that might be of interest.

As we hadn't booked anywhere to have dinner he managed to book us a table at The Plough & Harrow.

Our room, The Rathfinny, was very comfortable, light & airy. We slept well & breakfast was excellent. Very tasty & hot. There was a very good choice & nothing was too much trouble.

We would definitely return to The Riverdale & certainly recommend it as a excellent place to stay.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the beautiful Riverdale House, whilst walking the Seven Sisters and the Cuckmere Valley it was a super place to stay whilst experiencing the area around Alfriston. Rarely do you find a beautiful place like this with hosts who go the extra mile to make your stay very special. Thank you very much to Richard/Judy and all at the Riverdale for making our stay so relaxing and memorable. Thanks for the lovely breakfasts and all the information that you imparted about your lovely part of East Sussex.

Room Tip: Views facing the Cuckmere Valley are at the front of the house

Owner Richard is really excellent in supporting his guests in their trips. He does not push his ideas, gives good practical support, books pubs. He connects well to families.
His B&B is in a stylish house with a great view. We had the Litlington room which actually is consisting of two rooms and a bathroom: very convenient for families.
Also the breakfast is excellent.

Stayed: August 2016, travelled with family
