Other nearby attractions include the Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park, Michelham Priory, the White Horse at Alfriston and Long Man at Wilmington.

It's on a tiny little lane with trees meeting over the road in places. There are lots of public footpaths including one that goes through next door's land and down through fields to the woods.

Treetops is an ideal retreat or lovenest - it's wonderful space for getting away from it all and right into the countryside; to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature; to heal, create music or art or to study. It's very much a cosy country property rather than a stylish hotel setting but it's nicely and very comfortably furnished in rustic style. Horses clop along the lane outside and birdsong fills the air. There is a farmer along the lane who has equipment in use and large vehicles during the week sometimes so it's more reliably peaceful at weekends. The owner is a music teacher who lives in the main house with one child. There's a pergola with a built-in barbecue and seating which you are welcome to use or share should the owner be there at the time of your visit. It's possible to have the fridge/freezer stocked with a variety of locally sourced food on request including meat from the farm shop and wonderful cheeses and vegetables. Similarly should you require a bottle of chilled champagne on arrival this can be arranged with the owner.

For children over 5 the owner has 2 temporary beds (foam folding chairs with sheets, pillows and duvets) which can be made up in the eaves and which have occasionally been used for extra adult guests. The garden is ideal for kids, with a brick-built Wendy house and a wooden climbing frame/swing/slide set and more swings and hammocks from the trees, including one suitable for adults from the major oak in the front garden. There are two ponds protected by mesh and fencing respectively. Babes-in-arms are also welcome. A high chair can be provided on request but there are no stair gates so it's not suitable for toddlers. There is a £10 per head per night charge.

Music (piano, guitar, ukulele, singing & theory) lessons can be arranged onsite as well as art and crafts activities in the owner's spacious new art studio. If you would like to have an art/music holiday for a larger group there is room for camping in the garden and a campfire area with logs to sit on - please inquire for further details.

Although smoking is not allowed inside, it is permitted on the balcony.

Treetops has just been redecorated and carpeted so it's slightly different to the photos - new photos to come ASAP - it's similar but nicer and cosier now :)

“Quirky property in beautiful location”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Treetops and it was an ideal base. The view is gorgeous and it's very quiet. The balcony was perfect for an evening glass of wine and There's lovely pubs nearby so no need to cook! I'm sure we will visit Treetops again.

“perfect”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

This was just what we needed. A self contained happy tree house in (what felt like) the middle of no where. There is a lovely village nearby and lots of sites in the area. The treehouse was perfect, wish the weather had been a bit better but the windows are enormous so we were able to enjoy the view from the inside. Slept like a baby. Mrs S is lovely. Couldn't have asked for more - would definitely go back and stay for more than a night. Loved it and were just sad we didn't have more time to just chill there. Kate and Rebecca

Thank you, this is exactly what I like to hear! You are very welcome any time. x

“Superbly quirky romantic hideaway in a delightful garden in the heart of the bucolic Sussex countryside.”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

We were enchanted by this place; essentially an attic conversion over a double garage, superbly executed, with the kitchen and bathroom at ground floor, and a spiral stair taking you to the living and sleeping accommodation at first floor.Then, French doors lead from the first floor out onto a balcony, amazingly literally built around an old horse chestnut tree (hence 'Treetops'). It had great charm and character, was delightfully designed and decorated, and surprisingly spacious. And set in a lovely garden, much treasured by the owner Sam, with panoramic views over the bucolic countryside of West Sussex. Peace and tranquillity prevail. The ultimate romantic hideaway. We long to return, especially as our brief visit was curtailed by the need to dash across country to my partner's daughter who'd been suddenly rushed into hospital in Exeter.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this, it's such a shame your visit was cut short. I look forward to welcoming you back under less stressful circumstances! You have a base in the South East whenever you need it - if you would like to join in any art or music activities or let me know - I've also found a very good masseuse who will visit. Hope she's healing well. Best wishes to you both :)

“A real find ~ A relaxed treehouse ~ style retreat, beautiful countryside, ideal for a couple.”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

Oh what a discovery this was!... A tree~top studio, in a lovely English garden in Sussex. .We only had three nights, but it certainly made an impression. The weather was perfect and it was just like playing treehouses, only more comfortable and very romantic. For somewhere really unique and different it is not at all expensive...and it is looked after by a very friendly and talented young Mum who is a singer/performer/ music~ teacher. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the wooden balcony with our books and glasses of wine ~ a leafy, relaxing and private little outdoor retreat. There's a tree growing through the platform~ in fact it partially supports it~ and peaceful views over the garden.. The balcony is accessed through French doors at one end of the main upper living room.. The main room is a generous loft ~ style space, with a pine bed, and small pine table/dining area plus squashy sofa. Its an easy place to get settled if you only have a short time for a break. The main feature here is the fabulous view from two huge Velux roof windows which you can fully open for more of the outdoorsy, treehouse vibe! The span of Sussex countryside visible is just gorgeous. A spiral staircase leads down to the cute kitchenette (well equipped and modern) and pretty, spacious shower room. The front door is an old~fashioned, split stable door which adds to the fun aspect, and from it you see the base of the big old tree that supports the balcony above, and have immediate access to, and use of the lovely garden. The setting is also leafy and lovely, down an unspoilt, tree ~ lined country lane with only a couple of houses and farmland all around.The whole of the South Downs is at your reach (you do really need a car for this place) and the coast and lovely villages very nearby..We only scratched the surface of what there is to do! ...Visited Herstmonceux, Pevensey Castle and Beachy Head. We came away thinking we will definitely return again and again ~ it would be perfect as a place to unwind at any time of the year (there's central heating) and so fun for a primary age child and parent(s) ~ or just big kids at heart, like us! Thank you to Sam for making us welcome : )

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this and writing such a glowing review. We'll be delighted to see you next time you visit. All the very best to you both.
