We were warmly welcomed to this lovely accommodation. The setting was wonderful - lovely spring oak woodland, birds and birdsong. The National Park started at the end of the garden and a nature reserve is a short distance away. Steyning, the local town, is a little jewel. Our hosts were keen to ensure that we had what we needed and were comfortableRead more. We would happily return. Hide

A lovely, well-equipped little cottage, in a beautiful and peaceful location. The cottage courtyard is really charming and great for bbq. We visited with a puppy (unable to go for walks yet), and the courtyard is an ideal space to let a puppy run around whilst you relax. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful too. Overall a great experience!

A delightful, cleverly designed, attractive apartment with kind and friendly owners and in an idyllic location, particularly for South Downs walking. Quite small so probably more comfortable for two than four.

The cottage is situated over two floors with the bedroom doubling as a living/dining room and the kitchen/bathroom downstairs so all very compact. However, it is well designed and quite comfortable. It is well situated for exploring the beautiful Downs, and Steyning village nearby has a good independent grocery as well as several tea/coffee shops (Read moreand don't miss the museum). The owner was very helpful and provided some excellent tips for local pubs with good food. Hide
