Outstanding accommodation Park Road, The Whistle Stop, Henfield
Date of Stay: 22 Oct 2016
My partner and I stayed at the Whistle Stop for a few nights and absolutely loved the accommodation. It is one the best places I have stayed! The log fire was beautiful, the bed was very comfy and the DVD player was an added bonus! It is extremely clean, tidy and welcoming and has absolutely everything you could think of to make your stay comfortable. The welcome pack was very generous of Jo and Gavin and we absolutely loved it! I will be recommending the Whistle Stop to all of my family and friends and look forward to visit in the near future. Thank you,  Jo and Gavin.  Best wishes, Ellie and Alex

Title: Whistle stop is the place to be
Date of Stay: 24 Sep 2016
Als je aan de voordeur staat zie je de studio absoluut niet. Het is een verborgen parel. Gezellig appartement, smaakvol ingericht met goede zetels, mooi meubilair en vooral een goed bed en... houtkachel(Joepie). Ik stond in bewondering voor de hanging baskets, die rijkelijk bloeien en de mooie tuin. De slager en de groentenwinkel "Jeremy" in het dorp verkopen top producten dus kan je steeds lekker eten in de studio. Ook het restaurant " The white hart" in Henfield maakt lekkere gerechten klaar. We kwamen naar Henfield om de "GEOTOUR" van Geocaching te doen en zagen de allermooiste plekjes van de streek. Dus ik kan alleen maar zeggen " Ga ervoor"

The Whistle Stop, Henfield, BN5 9DS
Date of Stay: 17 Sep 2016
The property was second to none. Luxury bathroom and well designed and spacious living area. It was also very well equipped and more !  The welcome package was very much appreciated from the lovely owners, Jo and Gavin. It was tucked away in a side street off the High Street, so very convenient for the shops and walk to restaurants and pubs. A pretty garden to relax in after a day's outing was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended .

Title: A delightful, light and airy, modern apartment
Date of Stay: 10 August 2016
We really enjoyed staying in this private, comfortable and well equipped apartment. It is conveniently situated right in the heart of the village yet seemed not to be disturbed by outside noise. Coming from the tropics, we really appreciated the light and airy indoor and outdoor space.  We were also lucky with the English weather and were able to take advantage of the pretty garden setting and occasional passing visits from the owners' non-barking dog Macy. Very importantly we were looked after and made very welcome by Jo and Gavin in their unobtrusive way. The only drawback is the limited parking area and driving a small car would make life easier in this respect, but one soon gets the hang of it. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

Title: Time out at The Whistle Stop
Date of Stay: 08 August 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at the whistle stop. Jo and Gavin were perfect hosts. We were made to feel very welcome and on our arrival we were greeted with a generous starter pack and a lovely bottle of wine. The accommodation was very tasteful in decor the kitchen was a generous size and the comforts of home supplied in the living accommodation. Although the garden was shared it was enjoyable and the presence of Jo and Gavin’s Jack Russell Macy' added to the holiday. Overall our stay was very enjoyable. Our location was also very convenient to Brighton Public transport was also at regular intervals. Henfield village was a quaint place and very friendly. We found very good pubs to eat in and it also offered a variety of shops to meet your needs. We would recommend The Whistle Stop and we would love to stay longer the next time.

Title: The Perfect Getaway - Impeccably High Standard
Date of Stay: 09 July 2016
You will not be disappointed with this gem of a property. First impressions upon arrival will blow you away; along with the hospitality of the owners Jo and Gavin. They have considered many aspects of self-catering and adapted them into this property along with a traditional touch too. You will find the property is furnished to a high standard thought; which will only make it harder to leave at the end of your stay! We honestly felt that we were home from home for the entire week. If you are asking the question "how private will the property be"; rest assured that the property is quite secluded from the main house and unless you want to meet Jo and Gavin for a chat you could quite easily forget they are there! However, they were on hand for us to make enquiries on the local area and the best places to visit. The garden is segregated with beautiful landscaped beds flowing with colour; and there is a patio complete with BBQ with the rental. The property also has a private main entrance and parking for one family sized car. (you will not need to pass though the main garden to the property - this was something we wondered about before booking) All in all we would advise you to add this property to your short list as we are sure it will get booked up pretty quickly!

Title: Beautiful Gem of a Property
Date of Stay: 7 July 2016
We had the most wonderful (sadly short) stay in a beautifully kept and very welcoming place.  A true gem.   Everything about this property has been carefully and cleverly put together to create comfort, welcome and the basis for a superb "away from it all" break. Jo and Gavin were incredibly helpful and we loved meeting Macy. We are definitely going to return to this haven of peace, comfort and tranquillity. Well done Jo and Gavin. You've absolutely got a winner property there.

Title:Quality at first sight
Date of Stay: 30 June 2016
From the moment you enter this property it is obvious that a great deal of time and consideration has been given to this magnificent accommodation. The presentation of the property by Jo leaves nothing to be desired, from the welcome pack of gourmet bread and spreads, wine of your choice to the quality of the furnishings and fittings, this is a first class affair. Jo and her husband went out of their way to make sure our stay was most enjoyable, There is a bus stop almost out the front for a short trip to Brighton together with the choice of dining options and a supermarket if you need anything to self-cater.

Title: What a lovely place for a break!
Date of Stay: 9 May 2016
The Whistle Stop is a very clean and very comfortable place to stay with friendly owners, not forgetting to mention Macy the Jack Russell who visited regularly. There was a very big comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom with an excellent shower. Everything you could possibly need and more was provided. The welcome pack was second to none with wine, bread, butter, homemade jams, biscuits, eggs, tea, coffee and milk. Jo even texted to ask red or white wine and which milk we preferred. The high street is just a few yards away with shops, cafes and pub restaurants. We would certainly revisit.

Title:A very comfortable and well equipped holiday home
Date of Stay: 8 April 2016
We spent 4 nights at The Whistle Stop accommodation.  It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The apartment was very light, the bed was extremely comfortable, and both kitchen and bathroom had modern fittings and appliances which worked! We had come from overseas, and the accommodation provided everything we might need when away from home. In addition a very generous welcome pack was provided, plus supplies of some cooking necessities. The location of the apartment was very convenient - 2 minutes from the High Street, where there were 2 small supermarkets, and several pubs. The White Hart pub in particular provides good food. The owners, Jo and Gavin, were extremely pleasant and helpful and we hope to return for another visit.

Wonderful - great accommodation, ideally located for the village and surrounding countryside. We rent a lot as we have the need to move around the country quite a bit. This property really was something special - everything thought of and all the finishing touches done well.

Excellent property, huge bed , fantastic powerful hot shower, two sofas, welcome pack inc. wine, lovely bed linen and towels.  Very handy for Henfield shops and pubs esp. White Hart. Brilliant and very helpful host Jo -nothing too much trouble.  Enjoyed South Downs and Devils Dyke, Brighton Prom and Pavilion, London/Kew Gardens for the day and Steyning walking.  Book this Studio and you won’t be disappointed.

Title: Such a lovely getaway
Date of Stay: 29 January 2016
Absolutely gorgeous accommodation with nothing missed out!  We felt welcome and as if we were at home as soon as we walked in. I was nicely surprised by all of the little things that were included such as the earbuds & tissues! And the small touches that made the accommodation warming. Loved all of the board games that were on offer and the log fire was just delightful.  All appliances easy to use and such a nice use of the space.  Bed was so comfy and the shower was lovely and relaxing :) loved how close the shops were closely located but still felt nicely secluded. The owners were always at hand to help.  Will definitely be coming back.
