I have Lived in Pyecombe for 25 years and absolutly love living in this unspoilt village. I live in Stable Cottage with my partner and 19 year old daughter, and not to forget our two resident adorable Chocolate Labs that love attention. I love cooking, walking and the occasional Pint in the local Plough. Stable Cottage dates back to the 1890’s and was the original “Three Greys Riding School”. Just up from us is the original School House, the Chaple and the famous Forge and Church.
We visited in April for a night away to the seaside with Brighton just a short journey away. It was perfect in every way the lodge itself is stunning with everything you could need. The sky movies was a great extra as we were able to curl up with the little ones and watch a movie. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice cereal , crossaints and fresh juice to mention a few. We will defiantly visit again and not forgetting to mention how brilliant Keith is whom answered all of our questions and is so accommodating . Thank you for a fabulous stay !
Nothing was to much trouble. One of the nicest places I have stayed in. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed. The setting is superb and although I did not use the hot tub it looked fantastic.
Everything was as advertised but better. Breakfast arrangements perfect for my purposes and location ideal for my visit to Shoreham the following morning. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking peace and quiet
We had only a short visit to Sussex and needed to be in this area. After a long walk over the beautiful Downs we were glad to get to our B&B and find is warm and welcoming. Duck Lodge has been designed with style and comfort in mind. It is also very private and suitable for any season of the year. In good weather you could also sit outside by the French windows, and have a go the hot tub! Breakfast was an ample, continental style affair with plenty of hot coffee and tea. You help your self from fridge so again your privacy is not compromised. A short walk away was a very good pub for dinner – nice not to be getting in the car again to go for a meal. The village is small but very pretty. There is a lot of noise from the roads that surround Pyecombe but once you are in the cabin this is not intrusive. Keith is a very friendly and helpful host.
A fantastic room with everything needed for
a really comfortable and private stay. Keith is a fantastic host who has clearly thought of everything. My mum and dad said they wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
It took me a while to find somewhere outside Brighton which had a sense of luxury to it and this is just the place. Even more important, Keith welcomes you so warmly and is such a helpful and kind host. He’s thought of everything. Breakfast is included in your night away PLUS use of the incredible jacuzzi – blissful after walking in the Downs. Loved it!
I stayed at Duck Lodge for one night on my way to an interview. The warm welcome from Keith on my arrival (after a long journey) was fantastic. The room was perfect, and included a very comfortable bed, freshly baked croissants for breakfast and brilliant facilities. With a hot tub available for guests to use as well, I will definitely be making a return visit on my next trip to Brighton.
We loved our stay at duck lodge on our recent 3 day break in Brighton and the South Downs.
The exclusive log cabin lodge is immaculately presented and furnished to a very high modern standard, With the latest sky Q, Bose sound system and modern furnishings. Keith is a lovely host and very helpful. The use of the hot tub in the garden is a lovely plus point with great views over the South Downs. A great stay and we will definitely be back soon!
After a lovely day of wet and windy walking, we were so pleased to see Duck Lodge. It was so warm and comfortable with everything we needed for a relaxing overnight stay. We enjoyed having our own space, but greatly appreciated the welcome we received from Keith who was the perfect host (and even drove us to the fantastic Bull Pub in Ditchling).
Keith has taken great care with this cabin, it is beautifully decorated and generously equipped. The bed is comfy, the towels are big and fluffy, the cabin is warm and Keith provides very generous supplies for a diy breakfast and tea/coffee and biscuits. He was really helpful on arrival and gave us a great recommendation for where to eat. There are lovely views from outside the cabin over the downs and the path to the cabin is well lit – but he even supplies a torch in case you need extra help. A great stay and thoroughly recommended.
This was Just right for walking the South Downs Way. Very good and friendly. There’s even a hot tub. Good pub just five minutes away. I stayed while walking the South Down Way from Winchester to Eastbourne.
We stayed at Duck Lodge and were very happy with the facilities. The Lodge is modern, cosy and complete with everything you could need to make your stay comfortable (shower toiletries, dressing gown, hair dryer, towels etc). The Lodge location is great, we travelled easily by bus into Brighton and by foot across the South Downs. The host Keith is helpfuld and friendly, he offered us advice on local pubs we could walk to. One minor point is that the hot tub is very close to the main house but this didn’t matter too much for us. I’d definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Keith!
My fiancé and I needed a night or two in accommodation whilst we walked the South Downs way this week and found this excellent lodge in Pyecombe, a lovely village with a very pretty church and local pub serving great food. On arrival Keith the amiable host greeted us warmly and took us down a pretty paved garden path at the rear of the main house to the wooden lodge house at the foot of the garden.
A warm, cosy, welcoming space greeted us. Keith took the time and trouble to show us all the facilities and talked enthusiastically about Pyecombe and gave us great tips for walks and local pubs.
After setttling in after a long day we took his advice and had a fantastic late afternoon meal at the local pub The Plough just down the hill and returned to relax with a bottle of wine in the amazing hot tub which is more near the house than the lodge but has wonderful views to the Downs.
A very high standard of accommodation, spotless, friendly knowledgeable host, a great breakfast, a fantastic location.
We will be back!
I stayed at Duck Lodge for one night on a mini break/ walking weekend and I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The location is perfect for walks on the stunning South Downs and it’s also near Brighton and various wonderful little villages with excellent walks, pubs etc. Pyecombe village itself is lovely with a beautiful church and a pub/ restaurant. Duck Lodge is a charming Scandinavian style cabin with a double bed, en-suite (shower and WC) and a sitting area. It is beautifully decorated, warm and cosy. A luxurious accommodation but still feeling relaxed and comfortable. There is television, tea and coffee making facilities and a delicious continental breakfast! Next to the cabin is a shed where you can hang your coats, leave your muddy boots, crampons and walking sticks etc. I stayed in Winter but there is also a beautiful mini court yard style area outside the cabin with table and chairs, perfect for the warmer months. The cabin and shed are secure and well lit.
Keith, the owner greeted me warmly and was friendly, welcoming and relaxed and also extremely helpful with great knowledge of the area. Nothing was too much trouble, he made sure my stay in the beautiful Duck Lodge was enjoyable and very memorable! I honestly didn’t want to leave the next day and I will definitely be back!
