The property is in a lovely location at the end of a cul-de-sac in a charming small village. Excellent walks through fields and on the South Downs are available from the doorstep. It's a terrific venue to stay for Glyndebourne which is less than 15 minutes away. The property is beautifully equipped with modern appliances, an excellent kitchen area, more than adequate storage and a comfortable settee. There's a pleasant garden with lovely views.

We were very pleased with the property and it provided a good base for the sort of holiday we were looking for; walking yet not too far from a town. A pub a short walk away helped. We would certainly consider a return visit.
