Get the Best Night’s Sleep

If you’re planning a hotel stay in one of our beautiful country style pub bedrooms – or even if you aren’t – we’ve put together this little guide to help you make the most of your visit to Ditchling, and details on getting a bumper slumber​.

Walk the Downs

Visit the famous Mac’s Farm to feed their chickens, or amble over to neighbouring nature hotspot Ditchling Beacon, which is the perfect place to go exploring nearby. Slip on your walking shoes and take the dog out for a ramble to blow away the cobwebs. there’s nothing quite like exercising amongst nature to really build up an appetite for a hot dinner and a good sleep.

Don’t Go to Bed Hungry

Nobody can get a proper rest over the noise of a rumbling tum and we find the best kip comes after a hearty, wholesome dinner.

You’ll be delighted to see some of your favourites on the menu – big steamy bowls of vegetable soup with crusty bread, rich chicken & mushroom pie, and Apple & cinnamon crumble with hot custard. Scrumptious.

Swerve post dinner coffees and plump for a glass of deep, dark Argentinian Malbec also known by our landlord Phil as a ‘put you to bed red.’

Time to Relax

Down time is vital, but idle scrolling and laughing at funny animal videos is counter intuitive to a good night’s kip, so ditch your mobile. ​​Instead, snap on your bedside lamp, pick up a travel guide and plan a day of exploring Sussex, perhaps visiting nearby Brighton, or meandering around the quaint village of Ditchling.

Or  why not simply have a good old fashioned flick through a book to relax?

Do Not Disturb

Finally, let’s talk about pillows. Our opinion is the more the better, and a plump feather pillow is best, but we know the subject can be  divisive.So, pile up as many as you fancy, take that phone off the hook, pull up the snuggly duvet and rest your weary head. Our​ bedrooms are so quiet that the only noisy thing in there is the wallpaper, so slumber away undisturbed.

​​Sweet Dreams.
