Our apartment offers the perfect weekend break or holiday. Soak up the peace and quiet, enjoy the majestic beech woods, relax surrounded by nature! Set within the South Downs National Park and only 50 miles from London
The apartment is attached to our C18th farm cottage where we live. We are located along a secluded country lane nestled to the hillside in the tiny hamlet of Bedham. Overlooking one of the oldest woodlands in South-East England, it is a perfect rural retreat, surrounded by majestic trees and an abundance of wildlife that can be enjoyed at all times of the year.
The apartment is self-contained on two levels with its own entrance. It has wood-panelled walls and solid oak floors throughout and the decoration is highly personalised with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture. The walls are covered in art and there is a diverse selection of books, journals, boardgames and toys as well as a 50" smart TV, DVD and Wi-fi.
The lower floor is an open plan living space that has a well equipped kitchen, dining area and a comfortable lounge with a large picture window overlooking the woodlands. The back door leads out from the kitchen to a paved patio with table and chairs set under a glass roof and a BBQ that is ideal for alfresco meals. A small banked garden surrounding the patio provides complete privacy and in Springtime is full of wild flowers. Another paved terrace has a chiminea that can be lit on chilly evenings to provide a little warmth whilst listening to the owls at dusk.
Upstairs is a delightfully light and airy bedroom with an en suite bathroom that has an excellent power shower. French doors lead onto a large roof terrace overlooking a semi wild garden and the woods beyond. This makes a superb spot for breakfast in the summer or evening drinks as the light fades.
There is enough space for 5 cars to park alongside the lane but it’s informal and we have two cars ourselves, so consideration should be made when parking up.
There are a number of steps leading down from the lane to the apartment (to the left of our cottage). It is important to consider this if you struggle with steps because there is no handrail.
We are very sensitive to the needs of our guests allowing total privacy. However we're available to offer help and advice about the area such as local walks and things to do. We have a welcome pack listing good places to buy quality food or places to eat and drink including local maps of the area.
There is a sofa bed downstairs ideal for a child or an extra adult. We charge £10 per night per child over the age of 5 years old ( includes bedding)

There is an extra charge for dogs, please enquire to confirm details.
