Further details indoors

The living space is filled with natural light, two large patio doors look west and open out onto a patio area equipped with summer barbeque, so a great space to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. A wonderful vaulted ceiling just adds to the impression of space and a wood burning stove makes a nice focus on winter evenings. The main bedroom has an en suite shower room, while the second bedroom is right beside the bathroom so effectively you have two bedrooms with two en suites! The second bedroom has both a double and a single bed allowing for added flexibility and also a travel cot can be provided on request.

Further details


The South East England region

Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester Harbour and Emsworth in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.

The chalk downland of the South Downs cover a large part of Sussex from where they meet the sea at Beachy Head in East Sussex through to the Hampshire border near South Harting in the west.

Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex and Brighton and Hove on the Sussex coast is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Arundel and Lewes are two historic towns within the county both have imposing castles and are popular towns to visit.

The climate enjoyed in Sussex is above the average for Great Britain, which makes it ideal for visiting throughout the year.


West Burton is one of four very picturesque villages that sit below the scarp slope of the South Downs close to Bury Hill. Bury is a mile to the east, while Bignor and Sutton are both within two miles to the west. There are two fine local pubs to be found as well, the Squire and Horse at Bury is the nearest by a smidge and there is the White Horse in Sutton. Both offer local ales and good hospitality.

The Cottage has immediate access onto many local paths and West Burton is certainly well placed for enjoying the South Downs. A footpath climbs up from the village, however if you are feeling less energetic there is a car park at Whiteways by Bury Hill 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 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.

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.
