Ideally situated close to the centre of the stunningly beautiful village of Ditchling within the South Downs National Park.

The space

Our open plan first floor studio flat comfortably accommodates two adults with a double bed (memory foam mattress), sofa, TV, wifi, well equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven, hob, microwave (washer/drier available for a small charge) and shower room. The flat is accessed via your own front door and a staircase.

Guests will be provided with towels, bedding, hair drier, tea and coffee making facilities and a welcome treat, as well as essentials such as loo roll, kitchen roll washing up liquid etc. There is also an iron & ironing board. A mid week towel change can be arranged on request. For longer stays we can arrange a mid week cleaner for an additional charge.

Babies are welcome but you will need to bring your own cot etc. Please note there is no stair gate.

The space is located above a workshop/our garage so some noise should be expected during the day.

It was a last minute decision to spend our last days of a month long visit in the UK in the village of Ditchling. Karen was most gracious in making the arrangements to make our stay possible. The unit was as advertised, well supplied with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and convenient. The hospitality displayed by the entire family made us feel most welcome. The area around Ditchling is beautiful with a wide variety of walks and outdoor activities available. We discovered a lovely little shop called The Larder where we were able to purchase many of the staples we needed to prepare our own meals. All communications with Karen were informative and immediate.

Karen and Charlie were the perfect hosts; they made me feel incredibly welcome with tiny little riches. And the flat was absolutely perfect: modern, private, and gorgeously done. Couldn't recommend more highly!

I would definitely recommend Karen and Charlie's Apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Ditchling :) They were so welcoming and friendly and I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay! Everything that I needed was there and it is beautifully furnished. I would definitely stay there again :).

We had a lovely time at the studio flat in Ditchling - very clean and well equipped, and a lot of effort has gone into making it aesthetically pleasing. Highly recommended if you want to explore that area of the country or if, like us, you needed a base for a wedding weekend. Sorry we didn't get to meet Karen, but Charlie was charming! Thank you so much. Katrina and Peter

Although we didn't get to meet Karen, Charlie was very pleasant and helpful on arrival. We were very impressed with all the little touches the flat had to offer and we feel as though our needs were catered for which made it feel very homely. The only issue were lots of flies and big spiders, however we appreciate this is beyond their control. Overall a lovely place and nice stay.

Response from Karen & Charlie:
Dear Becky, thank you for your honest review. Unfortunately there's been a lot of flies this summer with the warm wet weather. We have contacted the council to let them know. We agree they are a neuisence and hope they will depart soon.
