Room/s with private bathroom/s in large and characterful writer's home in the ancient village of Robertsbridge. Ideally sited for walking, cycling and exploring in the glorious Sussex High Weald - and for sampling the delights of the on-site organic café

The space

The house is light and airy with high ceilings and loads of space and character, including a spectacular stairwell over three floors. Every bedroom has a bow window set within a curved wall, and has been restored with an eye for period style. The private guest bathroom is adjacent to the guest bedroom, and features a luxuriously spacious shower with excellent water-pressure. Overall, the house reflects the owners' passion for books, pictures, and lovely old things. It's a lived-in house, with all the quirks of a two-centuries-old building and some minor restoration still ongoing, so don't expect pristine paint surfaces or hotel-style conformity. That said, we can usually offer a choice of beds - soft mattress or firm, double or king - and pillows, as we're quite fussy about those! All bedlinen is high-end 100 per cent cotton.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use our Wifi, or watch the television in the music room. Accomplished pianists may ask to play the Steinway model B grand piano. Tea and coffee, light lunches and snacks are available between 8am and 5pm in the organic bakery a few steps from the front door. Your airBnB breakfast will be offered in the café.

Interaction with guests

The host is happy to make recommendations for your stay, or leave you to your own devices. We have waterproof jackets and wellies in a range of sizes to lend if you've come unprepared and want to sample one of the fabulous round walks accessible from our front door. We can lend a book with detailed directions, too.

Other things to note

The owners also own and run the popular village bakery and coffee shop - it occupies one corner of the ground floor, but from inside the house you don't know it's there. It sells organic artisan bread, croissants, patisserie, Italian coffee and other delicious things. Your Airbnb breakfast will be taken in the shop (a mere few steps from the front door), or, weather permitting, at one of the outdoor tables on the High Street. Equally, you may take your café breakfast in the verdant and secluded garden.

Huge thanks to Jenny for a wonderful stay! We were made to feel very welcome, the room and facilities were excellent as was the B&B breakfast. Jenny's recommendation of a local pub was perfect for the occasion as was the beautiful walk to it. We cannot recommend this highly enough, many thanks once again.

We absolutely loved our stay with Jenny. She made us feel very welcome in her lovely house which was beautifully decorated and had everything you would need. The room was large and comfortable with a good double bed and a view of Robertsbridge High Street with its attractive houses and shops. Good books and magazines in the room and breakfast in Jenny's coffee shop and organic bakery was excellent. We would certainly make a return visit.

Response from Jenny:
thanks Peter for taking the trouble to write. It was great to meet you both and I'd love Paul to meet you too - I think you'd have a lot to talk about! We don't get away together nearly enough so perhaps I can persuade him to take a weekend off and head Dorset-wards. At risk of seeming ungrateful for your lovely review, if it were possible to tweak 'double bed' to 'kingsize bed' that would tally better with my description of that room on the site. If it's a hassle to do that then not to worry. Jenny
