Quiet cosy 1860s cottage on a footpath in the heart of Ditchling, a relaxing country escape. Contemporary design alongside woodburner, rolltop bath and comfy sofas to fall into after a walk on the South Downs or a long lunch in the local award winning pub. Cafes, shops, museum of arts & crafts, cycling and wine tasting at local vineyards nearby. Brighton, Lewes, Glyndebourne, Charleston, Plumpton Racecourse and the sea are all close; London is 55 minutes by train.

The space
In the double bedroom on the first floor overlooking the footpath, there’s a stylish, comfortable Feather & Black bed with luxurious linens, throws and cushions for lazy lie ins. A wardrobe provides plenty of hanging space and there’s a chest of drawers.

The bathroom features a rolltop bath, walk in monsoon shower and DAB radio.

Downstairs there is an open plan lounge diner with wooden floors throughout. Unwind on the comfy sofas by the woodburner; relax in front of the television or with a magazine. The comfortable deep sofa sleeps one person.

The British Standard marble topped kitchen is well equipped with oven, induction hob, fridge freezer, washing machine & dryer, toaster and dining table that seats four people.

The back stable door leads onto the sunny east facing patio with a bench and table for breakfast or lunch outside, plus a raised bed full of herbs for guests to help themselves for cooking. The long garden opens up to a further seating area to soak up the sun during the afternoon and evening.

Where you’ll be

Ditchling, England, United Kingdom

Ditchling is a really friendly, creative village at the foot of the South Downs with lots to see and do.

Awardwinning pub The Bull serves wonderful food, wine and local beers and is just a 2 minute walk.

The Green Welly cafe, again a 2 minute walk, is great for breakfast or a light lunch.

The Ditchling Museum of Arts & Crafts is well worth a visit on the village green and next door to the duck pond.

Many wonderful walks in the local countryside, either up Ditchling Beacon or along the foot of the Downs; definitely bring wellies or walking boots.

Cyclists love the area and the challenge of getting up Ditchling Beacon! There's a great cycling cafe in the next village, Hassocks.

Several local vineyards for wine tasting, especially Ridgeview on the edge of the village.
