Very relaxing
My partner and I stayed 2 nights at Robins Retreat and it was just the relaxing trip we needed. Check in is super easy, the owner came out to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed. The hut is in a great location for visiting the village (a short 5 min walk away) and an 8 minute drive to a larger town and the seaside. All in all a great relaxing trip with a beautiful view.

Relaxing cabin stay in idyllic setting
Beautiful cabin stay in idyllic settings. The cabin had everything that was needed, was very comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable and can be folded away to create more space in the cabin. The owners were very friendly and helpful with pre-arrival information and directions to nearby cycle routes. We would definitely return!

Robins Retreat
Absolutely stunning, the shepherds hut had everything you needed. Wonderful and peaceful location for a lovely romantic time away, with the added bonus of the hot tub and stunning views across the cuckmere valley. The host we’re we’re amazing and nothing was to much trouble for them. Highly recommend

Peaceful, beautiful and tranquil spot for a lovely romantic weekend.
Robins Retreat is a beautiful, modern shepherds hut with the amazing added bonus of a wood fired hot tub to use for its guests. Located on the hillside overlooking the Cuckmere River - it's a wonderful spot for a peaceful escape. Mandy and Darran are lovely hosts who were so welcoming during the stay but also brilliant at communication before arrival. The accommodation is fully equipped with everything you need and more, including items such as a radio and dishwasher. My partner and I had a really lovely two night weekend stay which was such a welcome break from our busy lives. Alfriston offers lots of nice pubs, shops, coffee places and is lovely for a stroll. We did a lovely walk from a neighbouring village all the way out to The Seven Sisters coast. The local area offers lots to explore and we really could have stayed for a whole week with plenty to do and see. I've already been recommending Robins Retreat to friends and family.
