Your Hosts

Simon and Sara dreamed of creating a luxurious bed and breakfast home during long careers in academia and consulting which took them both all over the world. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between the HIgh Weald and the Channel Coast at Hastings, Grade II listed Boreham House presented the perfect opportunity to fulfil that dream. Whilst Simon continues in his professional career from the comfort of his home office, they both lavish their guests with the warmest of welcomes and an amazing choice of breakfast options!
