House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Steyning is one of a number of really picturesque small settlements at the foot of the South Downs. It has a particular charm popular with many, and Rosebud Cottage, a beautifully converted former tannery cottage is right in the heart of this fascinating small market town.
This cottage is wonderfully bright and light. It is presented to a superb standard and has been subject to a complete transformation offering really comfortable accommodation for up to three people. The morning sunshine that floods the living room conveys a real impression of space in what is a lovely cosy traditional cottage. There is a separate fully equipped kitchen complete with dining table and at the back is a ground floor bathroom with bath and shower attachment.
Upstairs are two very thoughtfully presented bedrooms, one is fitted with a double bed, the second with a single bed. The single room overlooks a small patio garden to the rear with a small brook that flows through the town immediately behind. The owner has a passion for gardening and this garden is a display of colour each spring and summer.
Being so central to the town, the morning papers and the coffee shops are just a short stroll away. Although Rosebud Cottage does not have internet access within, the local coffee shops do, so internet access is very local for those who need it.
We have to stress that this cottage is not suitable for children under ten years of age due to the close proximity of the brook at the rear and the stair access from the second bedroom.

The West Sussex 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.
Steyning and beyond
Steyning is a pretty market town nestling at the foor of the South Downs, and within the South Downs National Park. It is a vibrant small town full of narrow streets and timber framed buildings. Its Norman church contains some of the best Romanesque architecture in England.
Steyning’s immediate neighbour is the small village of Bramber that has remained largely unchanged over the centuries and is overlooked by the remains of the castle built after the Norman Conquest and now looked after by English Heritage. Nearby St Mary’s House is a magnificent late medieval house and has interesting connections - King Charles II hid there on his escape to France and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle chose the house as a setting for one of the Sherlock Holmes stories. It is well worth visiting on a trip into Bramber.
Chanctonbury Ring is on the South Downs Way, a short distance from Steyning and Rosebud Cottage. The ring was originally an iron age hill fort and following that a Roman temple was located there. It is most famous though for the ring of beech trees planted in 1760 by Charles Goring. The great storm of 1987 ripped through the Ring and, following a second storm in 1990 the Goring family replanted the trees and today Chanctonbury Ring is regaining its former glory. At 238 metres there are fine Downland views in each direction.
