This stunning family holiday home has been stylishly decorated and furnished in a relaxed way throughout for memorable getaways with friends or family.

This cosy contemporary cottage is situated in natural woodland, near to the heart of the village of Framfield and within walking distance of the village pub and church. Keen walkers and dog owners will enjoy exploring the many footpaths that lead straight from the front door with great views towards the South Downs. Ashdown Forest and the Seven Sisters National Park are a short drive away. Those looking to soak up the local culture can enjoy the world-renowned Summer concerts at Glyndebourne Opera House, explore historic locations such as Lewes and Alfriston. Other local highlights include Charleston, former home of the Bloomsbury Group, and where Virginia Woolf would often visit, or the Rathfinny Wine Estate, one of Europe’s largest privately owned vineyards. Brighton is only a short drive away with its Royal Pavilion and a shopper’s paradise offering boutique shopping combined with fantastic places to eat and drink.

Step inside this property and enter into a hallway where there is space for dropping off muddy shoes and hanging coats, and then head on through into the light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with the most fantastic views across the natural woodland pond and wildlife. The kitchen area is equipped for family entertaining with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher and a breakfast bar with stools. The lounge area offers a TV with BT Vision and DAB radio and its woodland views making it the perfect spot to unwind after a busy day. The dining table with seating for four is ideal for enjoying relaxed family meals. Two small steps from the kitchen area takes you up to where you will find two bedrooms, a twin bedroom and a king-size with views across the lake and access to the decked area. The property is completed with a shower room with shower and WC.

French doors open from the lounge area out onto the decking with dining table, chairs and charcoal BBQ, perfect for toasting marshmallows whilst star gazing and wildlife spotting in the evening. A garden gate at the end of the front garden gives direct access to the local countryside footpaths. At the front of the property is parking for two cars.

We had a fantastic break with our two children. The accommodation itself was great, the location was fantastic with local amenities and things to do close by. Lovely hosts (including a couple of impeccably behaved labradors). Something tells me well be back one day!!!

Wonderful, clean cottage with easy walks available from the door to the local dog-friendly pub and recreation ground. The enclosed terrace was perfect for our dog to sit outside with us. We enjoyed invigorating morning dips in the deep outdoor pool. High-quality furnishings made for a relaxing stay. Helpful owners live in the grounds.
