Our beautiful 18th century flint cottage with it's pretty courtyard garden, is in the heart of the beautiful West Sussex countryside - perfect for families with children, walkers and cyclists. Just 10 minutes drive from the sea and 20 mins to the centre of Brighton. You can enjoy the peace of the South Downs National Park, but are close enough for a day trip to Brighton or London.
The cottage can sleep up to 6 adults, plus 2-3 children and we can provide travel cot, high chair and safety gate.
The cottage has a cosy living room, with wood burning stove and a large bright conservatory with a dining area and sofas. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a modern bathroom upstairs and another bathroom downstairs. There are two double bedrooms, plus a single room. There's also a loft bedroom (with access via first floor double bedroom) which has a double futon which can sleep two adults, so the cottage can sleep up to 6 adults, plus 2-3 children. (NB: There is a small additional charge for extra guests if more than 4 adults staying, but there is no charge for children under 12).
This is our family home and is ideal for families or walkers and cyclists, looking for a base to explore Brighton and Sussex. Availability is mainly during the school holidays and weekends and while we will not be there, some of our possessions will be but we are very happy for children to enjoy playing with the toys and make themselves at home!
The house and garden are all fully open to guests. There is on street parking by the cottage.
We are happy to give advice and local tips and information - we have a wealth of knowledge of low cost family activities to keep all ages happy!
Please note: Guests will be provided with cupboard and wardrobe space in bedrooms and kitchen etc – but some of our possessions will be in the house while we are away such as books, photos etc.
I'm a outdoors lover, sea swimmer and occasional gin drinker! I love exploring new places and cultures with my family - and I think you get the most out of somewhere new when you stay with locals and get a real experience!
