Stylish holiday home in peaceful wooded surroundings in South Downs National Park
Overlooking one of the oldest woodlands in south-east England, Treetops is nestled to the hillside in the hamlet of Bedham, surrounded by trees and an abundance of wildlife. Its location makes it a perfect 'hideaway' that can be enjoyed at all times of year.
This holiday home is a self-contained annexe on two levels, attached to a traditional country cottage. It is timber clad in oak, blending well with its surroundings.
As you come in through the front door, you have a choice of a few stairs down to a large open plan living area or a few stairs up to the bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area and a comfortable lounging space with a picture window giving views of the surrounding woodlands. Upstairs is a lovely bedroom with French windows leading onto a large roof terrace overlooking the garden and woods. This makes a superb spot for breakfasts in the summer, or evening drinks as the light fades. The ensuite bathroom has a large power shower.
The back door leads out from the kitchen to a paved patio with table and chairs set under a glass roof that is ideal for alfresco meals. Another paved terrace outside the sitting room window has a chiminea that can be lit on chilly evenings to provide a little extra warmth whilst listening to the owls at dusk. The main garden is semi wild but is used by the owners of Treetops who live with their family in the attached cottage. So if you are bringing a dog, please do not let it wander away from your side.

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 National Park 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.
With the importance of the woodland here it is understandable that Bedham is within the boundary of the South Downs National Park. From Bedham Annexe there is the opportunity to walk locally either enjoying the views to the north over Wisborough Green and to Flexham Park, or by climbing the hill behind to take in the views to the South Downs. There are plenty of footpaths to enjoy and a good map will open up all sorts of opportunities.
Three miles to the east is the town of Petworth. This historic market town 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 makes the ideal place for a stroll following your enjoyment of Petworth House and Park.
