1 bedroom luxury holiday cottage.
The Byre is a gloriously colourful and bright 1 bedroom retreat on our farm. Downstairs you have an open plan living room with a modern, extremely well equipped kitchen.
Upstairs you enter a beautifully vaulted ceiling under which sits the bedroom and its modern luxurious bathroom. Outside you have your own private courtyard. Relax on the farm, or pick up the country trail at your front door and venture out. The vineyards, beaches, country pubs, and the glorious South Downs National Park beckon you.
As you enter the oak clad Byre you are greeted by colour, comfort and an array of mod cons.
Relax in front of the TV on the wonderfully comfortable Ercol sofa and chair, connected up to Amazon, Netflix, Youtube, BBC and more. Or light up the wood-burning stove, throw on some logs and let the flames enchant and warm you. Or spoil yourself and do both! If you’re feeling a little peckish then step into the well-equipped kitchen – microwave, induction hob, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and a full complement of crockery, glassware and cutlery. It’s all there.
As you wash up looking out of the kitchen window don’t be surprised if Nellie and Maggie, our two shaggy Shetlands ponies, aren’t up at the gate some 20ft away beckoning you to come over and visit with a cheeky carrot or three.
Off the kitchen, you will find a delightful cloakroom, one of the two toilets, with its feature vessel basin on a rustic table with legs hand-painted legs in teal (its actually Vardo – one of those fancy names paints from Farrell and Ball!).
Heading up the oak staircase you come upon the beautifully vaulted ceiling under which sits the bedroom with its eclectic mix of old and new. From stripped back oak floorboards with divine underfloor heating to a 50-year-old Ercol armchair donned in vibrant teal velvet to antique pine cupboards to a contemporary luxurious double bed, this is the perfect place to recuperate after a day in the great outdoors.
A quirky oak door leads to the enticing shower to invigorate yourself. Oak and pine cupboards give you all the space you need to store all your bathing and beautifying bits and bobs.
Head back down and out of your back door onto the courtyard where you can breakfast, lunch or dine in the company of Nellie and Maggie or fire up a BBQ for some flamed grilled delights.
Every bit of floor, upstairs and downstairs has underfloor heating – even the understair cupboard just in case you want to stay warm whilst hiding there playing Hide and Seek!
For the eco-warriors amongst you will love the solar panels, eco flush toilets and double glazing throughout, high spec insulation and air tested to the most demanding regs and external power points to enable you to charge up your electric car.
Across the courtyard, within one of our barns, you will find a laundry room with washing machine and dryers. There is also a recreational space including a Bonzini football table that came out of a Parisian café some 15 years ago. Enjoy! Some spare wellies and coats are available here in case you forgot to bring some.
It goes without saying all heating and hot water is provided together with linen and super soft towels.
Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are supplied as is free WiFi.
Mingle with your fellow holidayers – there is an equally luxurious cottage next to yours - or do your own thing and venture out and explore glorious West Sussex.
You have direct access to footpaths and bridleways which take you through our farm and out into the beautiful countryside beyond. As you venture out of the farm you will notice our ponies. We run a private stud where we breed native ponies. If you are lucky you may even see a foal!
As well as our ponies we have 4 dogs, 4 farm cats, 2 sheep and many chickens so a lot going on around the Byre.
