Stayed at the wonderful alpaca farm for three weeks while waiting for our house to complete, it was a home away from home, everything was perfect, beautiful well equipped and comfortable accommodation, a little gem in the English countryside, Chris and Vicki were great hosts, we will definitely be going back to walk with the alpacas
This self catering lodge is comfortable, well furnished and equipped with all you need for enjoying life in the countryside. It is like a luxury serviced apartment but in the pleasure of a country bungalow. I arrived in cold weather and the heating worked very well. It is easily controlled for your personal comfort. The proximity to the alpacas at the corner of a field means you wake up and enjoy their company outside every morning at breakfast. It is peaceful and immensely rewarding. Chris and Vicki are wonderful and caring people who make you feel welcome and who willingly share knowledge and time despite their very busy routines. Their thorough engagement with their animals as well as with the humans around them facilitate a deep harmony that is unique, truly special and most enjoyable. This experience has been marvellous and I will definitely return.
Beautiful, clean, modern, well equipped accommodation, amongst the best we have ever stayed in. (and we've stayed in literally hundreds of places) Our 3 year old grandson loved meeting the alpacas. Our hosts were very warm, knowledgeable and welcoming. Nearby Peacock Inn serves great food. The Lodge is well positioned for Uckfield and its amenities. Brighton and Lewes are an easy drive away. Blue Bell Railway and Sheffield Park are well worth a visit too. A perfect stay in a perfect location.Can't wait to see the alpacas again, such characters.
We spent an excellent week at the Lodge on Spring Farm. The Lodge is clean, modern and very well equipped, all the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is lovely to be able to look out of the windows and watch the alpacas and llamas in their fields. We enjoyed a cup of tea outside on the bench, watching the alpacas in the sunshine – even in October. We had a great time finding out about the alpacas, who are obviously happy and very well looked after. Vicki and Chris made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of information about the lodge and local area. The Lodge is in a quiet location, but there is lots to do only a short distance from the farm and shops, pubs etc are only a few minutes’ drive away. Can’t think of anything negative to say, it was a perfect week! We hope to come and stay again.
We stayed here for a week. Vicki and Chris were very welcoming and friendly.
The cottage was well equipped (nice bathroom, bedroom, kitchen area etc) but a clothes horse for drying clothes would have been greatly appreciated (!)
The big window in the sitting room doesn't open, as it looks out over the Alpacas' field - so it did get very hot in there.
Other than that, we really liked our stay there, and we all enjoyed the novelty of seeing the Alpacas - it made for a memorable stay.
