We have just spent a weekend at Great Harwoods Farm and it was one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable, welcoming – we couldn’t have wished for a better stay. Thank you for a lovely weekend. We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for a lovely stay, it was a pity that it was under the circumstances that we were there. You were so welcoming and thank you for allowing us to stay longer than 10am on the day we left. Your home is delightful and the breakfast wonderful. We would not hesitate to stay with you again if we are in the area again. Many thanks, Chris and Andrew
Thanks for a really pleasant couple of nights both of us really felt at home and coupled with a lovely breakfast and good company , we’ll be back.
I stayed at Great Harwoods B and B for 6 nights. I loved my stay here. Ailsa and her family are so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the room was lovely. It is a beautiful old house with a great fire in the living room when it is cold, and a lovely conservatory when it is sunny. I would thouroughly reccommend tthis accomodation to anyone looking to stay in East Grinstead.
We have just had the most wonderful weekend with ailsa and her family. Gorgeous home and area. Breakfast to die for, particularly scrambled eggs. Loved the room didn`t want to leave so soon. Will be back.

I stayed for 2 and a half years; seriously. Anyone working away from home for any length of time (as I did) will realise the pressures and isolation it can bring but the friendship of David, Ailsa, the family and banter with other long term guests made the sacrafice of normal home life a lot more bearable; in fact Great Harwoods felt quite like home more than a second home. The farmhouse stands in beautiful country surroundings but only a short walk from some great pubs and only 15 minutes walk into town. Even the winter months are a treat with a log fire always welcoming and in the summer the garden is a delight, particularly after a long day in the office. I write this review for 2 reasons, firstly to say thank you to David and Ailsa but also as a very strong recommendation to anyone finding themselves in my position and looking for a home from home.
We’ve been coming back to stay at Great Harwoods for over a year now and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. Ailsa and David are lovely hosts who always offer us a warm welcome. The B&B is situated in a beautiful country setting and has bags of character with a very homely feel. Each of the rooms have a one off style and are very comfy and clean. I love the way Ailsa has added lots of one off touches around the farm like a grapevine going through the breakfast conservatory and hot muffins for when you arrive. The breakfast is really varied and all fresh and organic. We always thoroughly enjoy our stay at Great Harwoods and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you Ailsa and David for always making us feel at home. Looking forward to seeing you in May.
This was a delightful place to stay and we enjoyed 3 nights in the self-catering accommodation with delicious breakfasts in the sunny conservatory of the main house. Ailsa was brilliant dealing with dietry problems and went out of her way to help, and the family made us very welcome.. Highly recommended by us.

Ailsa made us feel very welcome, gave us a lovely room and wonderful breakfasts. This is a lovely place to stay, close to town yet with the feel of being out in the country. Highly recommended.

Lovely stay. Very clean and friendly with a wonderful breakfast! Will definitely be back.
We have just spent 3 fantastic nights at Great Harwoods Farm. Thankyou so much for your friendly welcome and wonderful breakfast (and muffins)! My daughter Farrell had a great time swimming in the pool. We will definately be coming again now that we have discovered you.
Thank you very much for a lovely room! I wish I could stay longer and spend whole day… The breakfast was lovely, too! It was very nice to speak to your daughter. I would come back some time soon!
Thank you for a lovely stay Ailsa, we couldn’t have felt more welcome. Clean, homely and a fantastic breakfast. A shame it was just for one night but we’ll try and come back for longer. Many thanks again.

This is an absolutely excellent bed and breakfast. Everything is sparkling and clean, the service is amazing and Ailsa works exceptionally hard to make you feel welcome and to make your stay enjoyable. I could not recommend this place enough and I will be directing anyone who needs a place to stay in the South East here.
Sadly we were only able to stay for one night and would have loved to stay longer.We were very pleased with the decor and cleanliness of the room and the extra little touches which make staying here so special. Ailsa provides such a warm welcome and a fantastic breakfast.We can highly recommend a visit to Great Harwoods Farm for a relaxing break.

Thank you for such a memorable stay. Ailsa, you were so kind and caring when Hymie was ill, making all the arrangements and appointments. I cannot thank you enough. It is a delight to be in your home, everything is so wonderful, from the most delicious hot breakfast every day, to the chocolates in the room and the roaring wood fire was the cherry on the top.I have stayed in your B & B many times before and look forward to coming again, it is without a shadow of doubt the BEST.
Angela and Hymie Rim
Recently stayed 2 nights (5th March – 7th March. Enjoyed a really relaxing stay. Comfortable rooms and beautiful, peaceful surroundings. We were made to feel really welcome during our stay and we were fed excellent home cooked food. Thank you for a lovely weekend.
Carole & Stan Hallam
What a delightful b&b. Would definitely stay again and recommend to all. The breakfast was first rate and those poached eggs were perfect!
We had a lovely stay at Great Harwoods Farm. A very warm welcome. Rooms decorated to a good standard. The muffins are the best I ever tasted! Breakfast was perfect! Many thanks Ailsa. Regards
Neil and Shona
Total perfection from arrival to departure. Beautiful location, warm welcome, superb rooms and a breakfast to die for! Check out “The Farm” next time you are in the East Grinstead area!
Our recent stay at Great Harwoods B&B was like staying with your best Aunt! Our host, Ailsa, was very warm and friendly and she had a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude about herself. Our bedroom had limited space but ok for a night’s stay and despite having a bathroom on corridor it wasn’t any trouble at all. Our room and the house was very well furnished with a modern, yet country decor and Ailsa had really gone the extra mile with her little trinkets that we discovered at every turn. The B&B also had a wonderful swimming pool but unfortunately we didn’t have a chance to try this, however I did take advantage of the Beauty Salon that is built within the house. Oh and did I tell you about the breakfast in the morning…..it was like dinning out at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants! So all in all, I highly recommend a short or long term stay at Great Harwoods Farm. *****

If I were to travel the world over I could not wish to find a friendlier or more congenial household in which to stay. Breakfast: superb, vista from the bedroom window: splendid, company: unrivalled. It is like a home from home. I would recommend the accommodation to anyone who values a relaxing stay at a venue offering warm hospitality, a welcoming family environment and especially the complimentary muffin upon arrival!!
My brother and I stayed at Great Harwoods Farm and I must say, we both enjoyed it very much, The rooms were always very warm and welcoming, clean and tidy and Ailsa cooked us the most delicious breakfast every morning and her muffins and biscuits are to die for. We found the family a joy to be with and always had time for a chat with us and a laugh. We both had a truly enjoyable stay at the farm with Ailsa,David and family and would not hesitate to stay there again. Many thanks for such a lovely time spent at Great Harwoods Farm, well done.

Hi Ailsa. Thanks for a brilliant stay this past weekend – we loved your place and the surrounding area, and will definately be back at some point. We’ll also be recommending you to friends and family – the room was gorgeous and your hospitality spot on. Kind regards,

Hi guys, I had a wonderful visit when I was with you – I felt like a part of family and would love to come back down and see you both.
