Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages

Post the Second World War in the heyday of the diminutive Ferguson Tractor, this was the tractor shed at Sutton Farm. As tractors grew in size it soon became redundant, however the Old Tractor Shed is still very much part of a small working farm set in the most beautiful Sussex village of Sutton.

This is a truly imaginative conversion that makes very comfortable accommodation for up to five people that has been equipped to the highest level. The Old Tractor Shed is on a 100 acre farm combining arable and sheep farming along with providing fabulous views to the South Downs. Stay here in early spring and the new born lambs can be seen in the barn immediately behind the accommodation, it's a very special time to be here.

The accommodation is cleverly arranged over three floors. On the ground floor enjoying full length windows is the main living room and kitchen combining as a large open space area. The principal double bedroom with a Jack and Jill shower room is also on the ground floor, while the second bedroom fitted with twin beds and an ensuite bathroom are on the first floor. The bath comes with a shower attachment although the bathroom does sit snugly into the roof space. From the ground floor head down a few steps and there is a second living space looking onto the lane. This room is fitted with a sofa bed making the accommodation ideal for a family of five or friends coming together for a break or possibly to enjoy Goodwood. Throughout, the accommodation has underfloor heating.

Outside there is a private patio that is a wonderful suntrap that enjoys the afternoon and evening sun.

Within the farm there is also stabling facilities for up to two horses plus use of a paddock. Yes it is wonderfully rural here.

The West Sussex region

This historic market town of Petworth is four miles to the north and is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The house and its grounds are now owned and maintained by the National Trust.

The magnificent country house contains an internationally renowned art collection with numerous works by Turner. Petworth itself was immortalised in his paintings.

The town is full of quaint houses and cottages, many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops and tearooms so it is worth taking the time to browse having visited Petworth House.

This is just a flavour of what there is nearby. To the east there is Amberley Working Museum and the small community of Houghton on the River Arun. The Cottage is also exceptionally well placed for all the events hosted at Goodwood every year. A short drive further on is the cathedral city of Chichester.

Staying amongst the South Downs, nothing is really that far away.

Bignor

Sutton is one of four picturesque Sussex villages along with Barlavington, Bignor and West Burton that sit in line at the foot of the South Downs in West Sussex. These traditional villages are of great appeal to visitors and the area affords much peace and tranquillity. The pub in Sutton in the heart of the village is just 200 metres away and we are sure will be an evening attraction for many visitors.

The Old Tractor Shed has immediate access onto many local footpaths and bridleways. Footpaths climb up from the village onto the Downs however if you are feeling less energetic there is a car park at Whiteways beside Bury Hill approximately three miles to the east, or you can take the lane to the Downs from Bignor and park at the top beside the South Downs Way. This is where Stane Street, the Roman road crosses the South Downs on route from London towards Eartham and Chichester giving a choice of good walking in that direction or east or west along the line of the Downs.

The village of Bignor is closely linked to the Romans. Here you will find the Roman Villa, a home and farm with world class mosaic floors that was a significant settlement in the 3rd Century AD. We include a link to Bignor Roman Villa under “Places to visit” on the website.
