Best B&B I’ve ever stayed and I’ve stayed in a lot
Anybody managing or considering managing a B&B should stay here first to see how it should be done. Beautifully designed with quality fittings and comfortable beds. Ed and Rob, the owners, are fantastic - welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. All you could need is supplied from toiletries to vast selection of quality teas and coffee plus... oh joy a decent sized cup (it matters!). Brilliant breakfast at a time of your choice, freshly cooked from small but good hot selection plus toast, croissants, lovely freshly made fruit salad - and the eggs are freshly laid from their hens. Situated right by the downs, which loom over the end of the road, a couple of minutes walk to two pubs and well located to access several towns. If B&Bs have star ratings this would undoubtedly be a 5, this will now be my go to when I need anywhere in that area, can’t fault it.

Rob and Ed were the perfect hosts, the right balance between advise and leaving you to explore. The house had a very calming ambience which was further enhanced by the two wonderful dogs. Some great breakfast conversations very relaxing.

couldn't have wished for more!
We were looking for a quiet, relaxing couple of days somewhere to celebrate our anniversary and the Niche was the perfect choice. Ed & Rob are a lovely friendly couple who made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home, we were sorry to leave. Hudson and Bertie the dogs are gorgeous and perfectly behaved, we loved having them around. Our room was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We really couldn't have wished for more and have already recommended them to friends.
