Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about Hummingbird House below:

Hummingbird House exceeded our expectations in every way. Exploring every nook and cranny on arrival and opening the delicious hamper of goodies is always one of the highlights of staying in a Unique Home Stays property. Hummingbird House did not disappoint. The soft furnishings were divine, fires and the aga kept every room in the house toasty warm on very cold days, the separate living and media rooms allowed for plenty of space, and the garden, despite being winter, was an absolute delight to explore. Many thanks again Unique Home Stays for a fabulous stay. We look forward to booking our next luxury holiday in the UK.

We have had the most wonderful of weekends at this lovely house. Seeing the house clad in wisteria as the gates swung open, the giant clipped topiary and the prettiest of fishponds, we knew we were in for a special stay. We adored the house, the interiors and the special ambience that exists at Hummingbird House. It was so lovely to see the owner and thank her for the hamper, cake and fresh produce. We had wonderful food at The Griffin Inn and enjoyed our visits to Great Dixter Gardens, Charleston Farmhouse and Sheffield Park Gardens. The Eggs and Apples Farmshop at Hurst Green is superb.

Hummingbird House has been by far one of the best rental properties we have stayed at over the years. It has totally exceeded all expectations and had everything one may need to feel at home. The property was tastefully decorated with exceptional attention to detail and the facilities made us feel very welcome. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. It is totally unique and you can tell the owners and the housekeeper really take pride in looking after their home, and its guests!

Hummingbird House is the quintessential country home. It is the perfect location near both Uckfield, Lewes, many places of interest and local pubs. We had a lovely time during our three week stay with family and friends. The beds were very comfortable with superb linens and towels and the kitchen was fully equipped. We would love to return in the winter so that we could light the fires and snuggle up!

We had a wonderful, relaxing week for the half-term holidays. We locked ourselves in for most of it due to feeling so happy in the beautiful house and gardens. Lazy hours in the Jacuzzi will be much missed on returning to work! Such attention to detail with the interior design, a very well appointed home. Thank you for the fabulous memories.

We thought the property was stunning. Exactly as the photographs suggest, and super super comfortable. There was nothing that we could have done with which wasn´t provided. Really lovely. If we could pick it up and move it somewhere else for next year´s weekend away then we would.

We have had a wonderful week at this stunning estate. Especially our children who enjoyed the extensive garden and the tree house. Most of the time we gathered in the tastefully furnished kitchen. We will be back.

We have had an absolutely wonderful week, a perfect get a way for our family! We have especially enjoyed the discovery of the delightful garden with the most welcome fruit trees, pears, cherry plums and figs. The house is equipped with lovely touches, making us feel at home. Thank you.

We have had a lovely week here. Wonderful weather the first weekend.The house is really well equipped and well stocked. The garden was a delight to discover, especially the tree house and the large fish pond. Thank you for a lovely stay.

What an amazing house with all its little features. I have had a perfect hen weekend full of luxury and elegance, given to us in the form of Eades place. Particular highlights, include the hot tub and the discovery of the tree house. Lots of laughter has filled these beautiful rooms and much appreciation for the well equipped kitchen. The hamper is something I will cherish along with many photos from this weekend. Thank you.

Excellent facilities, including hot tub, table tennis and a tree house. Beautifully stylishly furnished - a real Unique Homestay! Personalised non-intrusive attention from the owner helped to ensure a successful family weekend

We´ve had a fantastic weekend from the magical moment when the gates first opened and we will be very sad to leave. Three generations in one beautiful house with lots of dreaming about how we could swap the daily commute or find jobs that would allow a country retreat. We had a lovely morning in Lewes, a great Sunday lunch at The Blackboys, lots of table tennis tournaments, tree house adventures, late nights by the chiminea and generally having a lovely time in this superb house. Thank you so much for sharing, we loved it!

Thank you for letting us stay at your humble home to celebrate our Mother´s landmark birthday (50+10) What an escape from reality! Your attention to detail is immaculate and we have been thoroughly spoiled. The memories from this weekend will last forever. Thank you once again and we will be back!

Three generations of our family have enjoyed a wonderful week in the seclusion and tranquility of your lovely house and garden. We visited many places and attractions nearby but we always enjoyed the adventure of returning to this magical place.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. You have thought of everything! We loved all of the little touches and wonderful interiors and the children had hours of fun in the garden, as we all did toasting marshmallows on the fire! The weather was glorious too so we really didn´t venture far - there was too much to experience right here! We are so sad to leave but have made some wonderful memories at Hummingbird House. Thank you!

Well what can we say? Simply WOW! This is one of the most wonderful houses we´ve stayed in - full of character, warmth, homely style and personality. Fabulously appointed and has everything you could wish for. A perfect place to create special memories with friends or family. We definitely didn´t want to leave, surrounded by nature, this is truly a ´unique´ stay that would be hard to beat. Tip: Don´t skip the hot tub, in moonlight it was truly brilliant! Thank you and we´ll see you again!

What a fantastic week we have had here at Hummingbird House, a truly beautiful, comfortable and welcoming home. Stunning decor and a fabulous garden. We celebrated my birthday in grand style with family and friends who were also able to enjoy being here and we had so much fun! The hot tub was well used as was the hammock, we had lunch at Bills in Hewes, but really just wanted to be here, and really didn´t want to leave! Thank you so much and we hope to return one day!

We would like to thank you for sharing your magical home for our perfect getaway. Home from home but with far better facilities! It has all been very luxurious and we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Each time we thought "Ah that would be nice to have" we found it tucked away somewhere for us to find! Exceptionally well thought out from marshmallow trident to the tree house with plugs! Awesome! We will miss this home for sure and are already thinking about our next booking and who else we can share this perfect paradise with. We loved it, thank you!

Our stay at Hummingbird House was fantastic – from the moment we entered through the garden gates and saw the house - we fell in love. The kitchen is so snug and cosy with the Aga and we adored the Media Room with the big sofa and fantastic TV – Our favourite room was the master bedroom with its amazing vaulted ceiling and its huge marshmallowy bed and not forgetting the quirky downstairs cloakroom with the train ticket wallpaper! – The hot tub and huge gardens were fantastic and we loved our trips to Glyndebourne and Charleston Farmhouse too – Can’t wait to return again!
