About our home

Our home is a beautiful 16th century cottage in the South Downs National Park. From our garden we have a great view of the spectacular Wolstonbury Hill and there are lots of beautiful countryside walks - through the woods or up on the hills - from our front door. We are down a very quiet country lane, popular with riders and walkers, so it's very peaceful, and yet we are only 7 miles away from the cosmopolitan city of Brighton. We are close to a lovely village with lots of little independent shops and pubs. There are some lovely pubs nearby and we are walking distance to a pub.
We moved here a year ago and are in the slow process of renovating it. It's quite rustic but very comfortable. We have an amazing inglenook fireplace and huge old refectory table in our dining hall and a wood burning stove in the living room. The bathrooms are quite basic but adequate. We have a one acre garden.
We are just five minutes to Hassocks train - this can get you into central London in an hour or into central Brighton in just 10 minutes.
