We have been staying at Netherwood Lodge every year for the last eight years for our trips to Glyndebourne. Accommodation is top notch. We always have the double room with a very comfortable bed and our own bathroom. The gardens are delightful, everywhere is decorated to a very high standard and the bedrooms have everything you could wish for, including tea/coffee, bath robes and slippers etc. Breakfast is always delicious, with plenty of choice. Homemade yoghurt, jams and marmalade too. Margaret is a wonderful host. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Highly recommended.

From her warm welcome until your departure Margaret Clarke makes you feel comfortably at home in her pretty bungalow cottage. The twin bedded room is very comfortable and the en suite bathroom spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are tempting and delicious. Her garden is a joy. We stay when we are going to Glyndebourne but there is much else to see and do in the area and, when sought, Margaret offers ideas for making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We highly recommend Netherwood Lodge.

What a wonderful welcome and we were so happy staying with Margaret Clarke. She took care of all our needs and made us so comfortable in her delightful home and garden. We look forward to our next opportunity to stay with her again.

Margaret is a fantastic hostess right from the welcome at the door to the extreme comfort in her lovely home and beautiful garden. We have just experienced a return visit which wasaseoutstanding as ever. Everything is there for gusts needs in the attractive bedrooms organised by Margaret to the minutest detail and the weloming tea and homemade cake and the locally sourced breakfasts are a perfect delight. We throughly recommend this charming location and the hostess without reservation.


For the first time I spend my holidays together with my family in England and could not have chosen a better place to stay. My boys loved right from the start the extensive typical English breakfast and the cosy beds as well. And my wife and I enjoyed the long walks and after it a good cup of tea and a nice chat with a well informed hostess who showed us what English hospitality means.
