The space
Time to stand still and breathe.....Surrounded by the inspiring beauty of the natural world and the great outdoors.

We have stylishly designed, created and built The Hut ourselves, with care and attention to detail to ensure beauty and function in every detail. A haven to relax and escape from the modern world. During your stay you will no doubt also meet our friendly retriever, kitten, cockerel and hens!

Together, we have encapsulated our vision of simple living.

Sheltering in a magical, peaceful setting in a secluded corner of our garden beside a small stream with wild brown trout, damsel flies, mayflies and the occasional glimpse of an iridescent kingfisher.

The modern hut is a spacious 5m by 2.4m (18ft by 8ft) furnished with a daybed which converts into a comfortable king size bed with storage, kitchenette providing all kitchen essentials, en-suite shower room with powerful hot water shower, hand basin, flushing loo, heated towel rail and mirror. A light and airy private space overlooking the stream and a wild meadow field, where you are immersed in nature and may see deer, foxes and badgers. Equipped with wine glasses, tumblers, plates, bowls, mugs and cutlery. There is a fridge with freezer compartment, kettle and induction hob. A hamper of delicious breakfast goodies (free-range eggs from our hens, croissants, bread, fruit and yoghurt) will be provided on arrival. Further hampers can be requested to order. In warmer weather sit beside the stream, or there is a fold-down table and chairs within the hut. Comfortable and cosy all year round with sheep’s wool insulation, heating, hot water bottles and warm blankets. Stylish touches with fresh flowers, sumptuously soft towels and beautiful striped bed linen.

EXPERIENCE
Stunning sunsets, magical moon rises, immense skies, cloud watching, starry nights, fresh air, wild flowers, space, silence, owls, birdsong.

The simplest and purest of style captured in the heart of the South Downs.

"In each day, wherever you may be, there is always waiting for you some beautiful discovery......
It is waiting to be found, to be made. It waits for you". Katie Daisy

Guest access
We live in the main house which is about 30 metres from the hut. We also use the garden ourselves, but there is plenty of space.

Other things to note
The daybed will be made up as a sofa unless a late arrival is expected and we receive a request for the bed to be made up. We can provide information on wonderful places to visit, walks and cycling in the area. Well behaved dogs are welcome. There is an OS map of the area in the hut, and information leaflets for what is available to see and do in the vicinity.
We are happy to accommodate a child and can arrange for the natural handmade cotton roll out mattress to be made up. Please note care and supervision of children is needed at all times due to the bridge, stream and steps. Please ask when making your booking.
There is a hairdryer provided along with hot water bottles and extra blankets.
The hut has WiFi but signal occasionally a little weak. Wifi is also available in the pub across the lane.
Please let me know if you have any special dietary requirements.
