Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Cottage at Friston Down is a delightful three-bedroom annexe to a larger house - set within beautifully maintained, expansive gardens and with shared use of a swimming pool.
The annexe has its own private entrance and is set over two floors. Upstairs, in the eaves of the cottage, is a huge master bedroom with views over the South Downs, a walk in wardrobe and TV. This room can easily accommodate a cot or a camp bed for an extra child (both can be provided). Across the top of the stairway is a large family bathroom, complete with bath, separate walk in shower, toilet and bidet.
Downstairs are two further bedrooms - one double, one twin - plus another family bathroom, again with separate shower and bath.
There is a spacious, comfortable lounge with views over the gardens and French doors leading to your own private terraced area - perfect for summer BBQs or an evening drink. With a large screen TV with Sky TV, DVD player, stereo, free WiFi and even an iPod docking station, you're perfectly equipped for a relaxing break.
The dining kitchen is equally well equipped for a self catering holiday. There's another TV, plus a fridge, double oven, microwave, dishwasher, table and chairs and plenty of pots, pans and crockery. A separate utility room houses a washing machine and separate tumble dryer.
Set within the lovely grounds is a swimming pool which opens during the warmer months of the year - and you'll have set times each day where you can enjoy exclusive use.
With central heating throughout, this is a cosy hideaway in winter as well as a fabulous choice for a holiday in warmer weather. All towels and linen are provided, and while you'll feel completely independent in your own cottage, the owners are nearby if you need them, to answer any questions about the area or property.
There is plenty of parking in the wide gravel driveway leading to the cottage. All towels and linen are provided, along with enough tea, coffee and milk for welcome drinks on arrival.
