"A great home from home"

It's important to understand that this is very much Mel's home: clothes in the wardrobe, food in the fridge etc. This is not a neutral, empty holiday cottage. As long as you're happy wi… More

Thank you for a very thoughtful and fair review. Please note that we clear storage space for stays of more than 3 nights. This is our first year and we are listening to feedback and making improvements as we go (but keeping prices very reasonable!). You are right, this is not a house for people who like 'bland hotel standards.' We are creative people and our home reflects that.

"Brilliant stay would reccomenrd"

Had a lovely stay at this House with my friends. Everything you needed was available and the owners were so friendly.
It was clean, and although lived in, made it feel like home.

Thank you so much for your review. We're redecorating this season so it should be even better next year:)

"Wonderful house, great location-very homely and lovely."

We loved staying in this house. The rooms were nice; especially the attic room which is fantastic! There is a cute garden; which was wonderful in the summer sunshine. It's a short walk into town and the lanes, so it is perfectly situated for what we needed. Couldn't recommend it enough and Melanie, the owner, was really helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be returning!

Thank you so much, Helen. We were honoured to have you and the other dancers from Parlor Dance staying at Mel's House whilst performing at Brighton Festival. I'm so glad you got such lovely weather and enjoyed the garden and loft room. I'm so sorry I didn't get to see the show as it sounded amazing. Anybody who loves dance like me, check out Parlor Dance. Hope to see you at next year's Festival.
