"Everything you need, clean and comfortable."

A friend and I stayed at Rosebud Cottage for a week while we were walking in the South Downs. The cottage has a very well equipped kitchen, a nice bathroom, comfortable lounge with plenty of books on … More

So pleased to hear you would definitely stay at Rosebud Cottage again. Part of the charm of these mid nineteenth century cottages is the rather quaint right of way through back gardens – fortunately the neighbours, who may use this right of way, are very discreet & considerate. Another typical feature of these early Victorian cottages is steep stairs, so as a precaution, I have put in a handrail to make them safer. Regarding parking, guests are always informed they can leave their car day & night at the local pub car park where there is always space available. This is just across the road, one minute from the cottage.
