"E is for Exceptional"

It is a pretty big statement to make but nonetheless, I would rate our one night stay at White Lodge to be the best B&B by a country mile that we have ever stayed in. Afternoon tea and lovely homemade cake as soon as we arrived and weather good enough to enjoy in the garden. White Lodge is beautiful- the beds and linen are superb, the bathroom appointed to the highest standard and within the room, everything has been thought about and provided and then some. Breakfast so delicious and comprehensive - I could go on and on but suffice to say that Ann and Martin are motivated to make every single element of their wonderful B&B the very best experience it can be and it is. Ray & Sue, June 2017

"Not enough superlatives"

There are more than a few hoteliers from so-called 5-star establishments who could learn a thing or two from a stay at White Lodge. Ann and Martin have excelled themselves in everything from service to design. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed in a fresher looking property – it feels like you’re the first guests ever there. Nothing has been skimped, from the exquisite bed-linen to premium sanitary ware, cutlery and crockery. Afternoon tea on the patio was accompanied by delicious home-made cakes (where does Ann find the time?) and kicked off our all-too-short stay in the perfect mood. Breakfasts are superb and my scrambled eggs were the best I’ve ever tasted. The rooms are huge, bright and airy and the bathrooms gorgeous. This business is clearly a labour of love and it shows.

"White Lodge the best!"

We've just returned from four days and night at White Lodge – what a treat! Anne and Martin have created a 5 star B&B which combines in equal measure comfort, modern design, idyllic surroundings, great breakfasts and unobtrusive attention to the detail of their guests’ needs. If you are looking for a traditional, chintzy English cottage with roses round the door then White Lodge is not for you. However, if you delight in modern design, spare but beautifully executed interior décor and outstanding craftsmanship you’ll love it. Breakfasts are substantial, generous and locally sourced – great scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, eggs Benedict, homemade sourdough and delicious Irish wheat bread (Anne will give you the recipe if you ask). You’ll be greeted with tea and cake on your arrival, supplied with a chocolate brownie in your room when you get back from Glyndebourne (“just in case you are hungry”) and brought iced water, elderflower cordial and a fan to keep you cool on the hottest day of the year. You’ll be provided with maps of local walks in the ancient beech woods surrounding the property, as well as driving routes to local pubs and the opera house, and there’s a wealth of local information and advice available. I can’t recommend White Lodge too strongly. Richard & Meg, Glyndebourne Guests


Very friendly, beautifully appointed home with a delicious custom cooked breakfast! Lovely touches like the cake left in the room for a midnight snack on our return from the opera. Super comfortable beds, would highly recommend White Lodge. Jane & Dominic, Glyndebourne guests, June 2017
