A tous les français qui souhaitent venir chez Mike, allez y de bon coeur, la maison est spacieuse, très bien agencée, impeccable, cuisine plus qu'équipée pour faire de bons plats, jardin très beau, à 5 mn de la mer et du débarquement en arrivant de Dieppe. Proche de Londres et position centrale pour visiter le sud de l'angleterre. Mike a été charmant, belles attentions à notre arrivée (sapin de noel et décoration pour que nous puissions passer noel comme à la maison et c'était le cas). Bonne adresse à garder et à recommander. Nous étions 4 (2 adultes et 2 enfants) en provenance de Provence. PS : ce n'est pas un bungalow (ca veut dire de pleins pied en anglais), bien équipée pour des personnes a mobilité réduite location ++++
The bungalow is well equipped,the owner having considered every need.It was really clean and tidy,the beds were comfortable and the bed lined of good quality. The garden was delightful with lovely plants as well as a nice outside seating area.We could not fault the accommodation at all.The area is a working town so not a tourist spot ,we drove to places of interest and there are good transport links,especially the bus.We didn't eat out in Newhaven,so can't pass on any recommendations.
10 jours passés dans cette très agréables maison en briques (ne pas en rester au terme de "bungalow", inapproprié en français). Maison bien plus grande que les photos ne le suggèrent, tout le reste est parfaitement conforme à l'impression dégagée par les photos. Grandes et lumineuses pièces, cuisine et équipement magnifiques pour qui - comme nous - aime cuisiner, sur le jardin. Ce dernier est extrêmement bien entretenu, beaucoup de petits recoins tranquilles et sans aucun vis-à-vis. Nous confirmons les petits renards le soir! Charming. Très calme. Bien situé un peu en retrait du centre cette petite ville de Neaheaven m
We are a Swedish family of four who stayed in this lovely spacious house for two weeks. The place is clean and much effort has been put into the house to make sure the stay is as comfortable as possible. The garden is absolutely beautiful and the view magnificent. We will defiantly return and give our highest recommendations. Thank you Mike for your service and hard work to make our stay so comfortable.
The place is an absolute wonder. It's charming, the kitchen is well-stocked, alls of the rooms are clean and bright, everything has been thought of and provided for our comfort and happiness. We will very happily stay here again when we are back in England, thanks to Mike and Karen, who also managed to arrange the weather for our 6 week stay. :) Thanks so much!
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans la maison de Mike qui est ravissante, plus grande que ce que l'on voit sur les photos,en très bon état, avec un très beau jardin. La maison est bien située, possibilité de faire ses courses à pied, visites de Brighton, Londres, château de Harundel ( superbe), Seaford, les villages typiques avec leurs brocantes et j'en oublie. Le temps était de la partie , nous avons pu prendre tous nos repas sur la terrasse ( en compagnie parfois le soir de renard des villes!). Vacances reposantes, dans un cadre agréable.
After 7 Long hours on the road from Cornwall we had a heartfull wellcome from Mike, who has waited for us patiently. The house ist beautufull from the in- and from the outside. Mike showed us around and we felt home instantly :-). There is everythin you need for cmfortable stay and even more. It was great to get everythin shown by Mike, so we did not have to search for our selfs. The rooms are beautiful furnished (oppinion of us-parents- and the "Kids" -15/18/19) with plent of room for everyone to feel comfortable. So ist the garden: wonderful grown - we even had fresh rasberrys in the morning - different places to relax and feel good. Everything was clean and specially the many towels in the bathroom were wonderful with us traveling with 3 big Kids! Mike also told us alot about the surrounding and showes us a lot of brochures to look at, so we were all prepared for our week. We have only been in "The Ark", a Little Restaurant at the Harbour - nice Food, good Drinks and nice to sit! Alfriston is a very beautifull old and little english town nearby. Your final words: We loved to stay in this house, felt at home and looking Forward to be back soon.
Das Haus verdient wirklich jede positive Beschreibung, die sich hier findet. Sehr bequem, gemütlich und hübsch, absolut sauber. Die Ausstattung ist hervorragend, der Garten herrlich. Newhaven selbst hat außer dem Fort nicht sehr viel zu bieten, die Lage ist aber ideal für viele herrliche Ausflüge an der Südküste von Portsmouth bis Hastings. Mike, der Besitzer, ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich war mit 3 Kindern im Alter von 11 bis 15 Jahren hier und wir haten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt. Danke Heike Schmidt
We are a family with three teenagers (12, 14, 17) and stayed for ten days. The property is really great. Three spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. The main bedroom offers a fantastic view into the garden. The huge kitchen is completly equipped. Washing-machine, dryer and dishwasher are in really good condition. Wifi made travelling with three Teenagers much easier. Just the sofa in the livingroom could be a bit harder. Mike gave us many extra information about travelling by bus and train in advance what made the planing of our trips much more easy. And we saved a lot of money. Special thanks for that. There is an excellent bus-service, so we could leave the car in the parking space. We visited Brighton, Eastbourne, Seaford and Lewes by Bus. The double decker busses offer great views to the landscape (the green Brighton&Hove busses offer free wifi 8-) ). We reached London by train in about 90 minutes. (The fare for an adult including all transportation in London (busses, tube etc) was about 22 GBP.) Newhaven itself is - as someone has written below - a ferry port and there are some areas that are not really attractive (But you will find unattractive areas in nearly any cities won't you?) Mikes property is situated in the upper part of Newhaven that is really in good conditon. Supermarkets are not to far away. thanks Mike for the wonderfull time. I guess we'll come back.
Mike and Karen's property is just what I needed: a beautiful clean space, all the amenities one would need or want (from kitchen appliances to a complete 4 piece bath and extra toilet to washing machine and dryer), a large and comfortable garden, parking space, close to Brighton, Lewes, Seaford, the Seven Sisters and the Downs. I travel for a living and unfortunately have severe allergies (pets, dust, mould, mildew), which means I'm very particular about where I stay. This house was the perfect match for me! I stayed for 12 nights and wish I could've stayed longer :)
This house is perfect. Every room is in a very good condiion. Kitchen is huge and perfectly equipped. Bathroom as well. Sleeping rooms are fine as well. There is a lot of space in the living room as well (the sofa could be a bit harder). The garden is wonderful and has a lot of space; there is w barbecue as well. We spent almost every day outside - even our evening meals. We recommend this house 100%; perfect for 4 persons. Thanks a lot to Mike. I guess we will come back sometime (for the 3rd time).
Das Haus ist in einem sehr guten Zustand und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet - alles ist in sich stimmig und der Garten lädt zum Verweilen ein. U. a. ist die Küche komplett eingerichtet mit allem, was man benötigt, genau wie in der Beschreibung aufgeführt. WLAN erleichtert den Urlaub mit Teenagern. In der Umgebung gibt es viele Dinge zu sehen und zu besichtigen, wie zum Beispiel die Seven Sisters oder Brighton. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine à Newhaven. La maison correspond tout à fait à la description de l'annonce. Elle est très bien équipée et très confortable. De plus le propriétaire est sympathique, disponible et donne volontiers des conseils pour visiter la région. La maison est pratique lorsque l'on arrive de Dieppe par le Ferry car elle se trouve à 5 minutes en voiture. Bon point de départ pour visiter Londres, Brighton, Lewes, Seaford & the seven sisters, Eastbourne.
The owner has really thought about the facilities in this property. It had every comfort you could require. As a foodie and someone who enjoys using local ingredients, the kitchen had every utensil you could think of. The raspberries and tomatoes in the garden were an extra treat. The bed was very comfortable (we only used the main bedroom as there was just the two of us). And the linens very good quality. The facilities in the garden were great and positioned to catch the sun all through the day. The owner met us on the first day and gave us a very comprehensive review of both the property and the surrounding area. If I have a criticism it's that the area really needs smartening up. It is a ferry port and therefore not particularly attractive and the general area is one of degeneration. This of course is no fault of the owner and should not detract from visitors booking the property. There are some lovely places around to visit, Lewes, Brighton, Eastbourne, Seven SIsters Park and Seaford just to name a few. The bus service to all these places is great if you don't want to use a car. On a scale of 1 to 10 we would give this a worthy 9. Thank you Mike.
House and garden are beautiful and well kept. The kitchen is the best eqipped we have ever had in a holiday home. It is a pleasure to have breakfast in the garden (morning sun at the table). The owner is very friendly and helpful and gave us a very warm welcome. The town of Newhaven in contrast is not very well kept, but it is worth taking short trips to other towns or - which we enjoyed most - going hiking near the cliffs (Beachy Head, Seven sisters). A lot of information material is provided, among other a guide on hiking tours with very exact descriptions. For our family of five (children of 16, 13, 8) it was a wonderful holiday in this lovely house and garden.
We had a exciting week in this house. The house is very nice, especially the garden. Everything you need was in the house. It´s easy to go on a trip by bus or train. Lot´s of flyers for sightseeing were in the house. We were in Brighton (by bus) and Lewes (by train). From seaford we took a walk to the cliffs. The beach in Newhaven is very quiet. That is also wonderful. The whole family became a sunburn. The supermarkets are not far away. The owner provides us a greeting paket. That was very kind of him. So we felt very well.
the bungalow is - especially concerning the equiment and the technique - well maintained and up to date. The garden is lovely and so is the interieur. The house is a good starting point for trips to Brighton, Eastbourne and London.
A beautiful house and the reception of the owner was better than expected, really warm and helpful. We are considering to go here again in 2013 since we simply loved the place. Brighton and Eastbourne are just around the corner and the taking a train from Lewes (10 km away from the holiday home) to London to see a musical was also perfect.
The bedrooms are spacious, the livingroom a warm and nice family area and the kitchen has all the equipment and space you need. We had a lovely Christmas meal in the dining room and the bathroom has a shower which is so nice you simply can't stop.
Even though the weather was windy and rainy we didn't mind because being inside made us forget about the weather. If I would have to score 1-10, it would get a 9.5.
Newhaven is hardly the bustling hub of East Sussex, but all the necessary facilities such as post office, supermarkets, bus and train stations are within walking distance. If you don't like to stay in a noisy environment, this place just is fine. Newhaven is the perfect starting point of everything where the fun is, like Brighton, Eastbourne, Lewis and much more highlights.
The bungalow is equipped with all the possible facilities like you're used to at home and why should you settle for less? That the bungalow is including WiFi and countless channels on the TV is a big plus. You can see that the owner has taken great care to make it the guests as comfortable as possible.
I would recommend this location to all my friends and acquaintances.
- Search on the internet for all the car boot sales and fleamarkets in the area, they are definitely worth to visit.
- Coming from over the Channel, you should download an app that converts kilometers into miles. Most of them are free and it's easy to stick your iPhone just above your rear view mirror. The GPS module in your phone gives you your current speed in real-time... in miles.

A very spacious bungalow with lovely big bedrooms and plenty of living space. The kitchen is big and well equipped and it is very easy to operate and maintain the house. The garden has lots of different seating areas where you can get some quiet time if you want to. Easy to get to the South Downs and to visit all the lovely coastal towns... lovely walks everywhere. The owners are kind and very helpful - we were there at Christmas and they had put up a lovely tree for us. Highly recommended.
We had a perfect familly stay in this lovely bungalow, well equiped, with spacious living space and georgeous garden located at the door step of Brighton and South down coast overlooking the Seven sisters. It has direct access to French Channel and is a short drive away from everything with direct train access to London. Very good sleeping facilities, large lounge with Hill views and fully equiped kitchen made our stay very comfortable and relaxing. Ideal for group of friends and families stay. The owner is trustworthy and made us feel at ease and nothing was spared with quality of equipement and furniture. I would highly recomend this property and will defenitely come back.
Das geräumige, komfortabel ausgestattete Ferienhaus ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt zum Besuch der nahegelegenen Seebäder Brighton und Eastbourne; London ist in ca. 1 1/2 Stunden erreichbar.
Durch die erhöhte Lage des Hauses hat man einen einzigartigen Blick über Newhaven.
Ein sehr freudlicher Vermieter und die gut funktionierenden technischen Einrichtungen wie z.B. 42-Zoll-TV, WLAN-DSL-Router, Waschmaschine,, Trockner, Gefrierschrank, Gartengrill etc. lassen keine Wünsche offen.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway.
good location to visit Brighton, the chalk cliffs and the South Downs, all the interesting sites (artists homes, castles, gardens etc.) were within reach, nicely situated in a quiet area, nice view towards South Downs, beautiful and blooming garden, very well-equipped and nicely decorated bungalow, everything was clean and well-maintained, owner was very nice and helpful, food for the first day and tourist information about the entire area were provided, owner changed bedsheets and towels during our 10 days stay once, a bit more expensive but totally worth its price, Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Sightseeing, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
