  • Lovingly restored 12th century cottage, with private garden with patio
  • Visit the nearby beach of Shoreham popular for windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing
  • Perfect for keen walkers and cyclists with easy access to The South Downs Way
Property code: 51150

This characterful property is ideally suited for couples or families to enjoy a great holiday. It offers comfortable accommodation with easy access to South Downs and the nearby beach at Shoreham.

The small, rural town of Steyning is the ideal spot for a romantic getaway or a family-friendly break from city life, and this property is a comfortable spot for up to four guests to stay. Set in the heart of the town, you're within walking distance of independent pubs and shops for a true countryside getaway, as well as being less than half a mile from the glorious South Downs.

 

Full of charm, this Grade II listed property is a 12th-century cottage that has been modernised whilst retaining its traditional features. Stunning exposed brickwork and ancient exposed timber beams make this property feel authentically rural, and the decor and furnishings follow suit with a natural, soft colour scheme. Make time in the evening to curl up in front of the wood burner whilst catching up on the Smart TV, enjoying a DVD or flicking through one of the books left behind. Up the cottage-style stairs, you'll find a roomy king-size bedroom with a comfortable wrought-iron bed, and a second twin bedroom which can be made up as a zip-and-link king-size bed, making it ideal for two couples to enjoy a romantic double holiday. A generous enclosed garden to the back of the property is an idyllic place to relax on a warm summer's evening.

 

Once you've frequented the pubs and shops in Steyning, head off on an outdoors adventure and soak up the impressive South Downs that surround you. You're 11 miles from the must-see area of Devil's Dyke which has a multitude of walking routes through the deep 1-mile valley. Or swap grass for shingle and head 6 miles down to the seaside at Shoreham-by-Sea, where you can enjoy kitesurfing or a long walk along the seafront. Before leaving, be sure to head 13.5 miles to Brighton to check out its independent shops and eateries.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
