The space
The double height reception room of this property was built in 1880 at the top of the building, as the studio of the Victorian portrait photographer Walter Kevis.
It is an unusual room, with great character and feeling of space.

The 3 bedrooms on the first floor offer flexible accommodation for up to 6 people. We also have a sofa bed in the main studio space for an additional two guests. Each bedroom has its own hairdryer, two ultra soft cotton towels per guest (one large bath sheet and one hand towel each), Egyptian cotton sheets and duvet covers, two hypo allergenic pillows per guest, with Oxford bordered Egyptian cotton pillowcases, and plenty of hangars, Sweet Orange and Geranium hand wash, shampoo and hand lotion all supplied by local brand Artful Teasing from Lombard St, Petworth. Each guest can also relax in the luxury cotton bathrobes supplied for use whilst staying here. An iron and ironing board is ready for action for those with wedding outfits to perfect!

The studio is equipped with board games galore and a retro music system (cassettes and vinyl welcome!), books, maps, magazines, guitar and a projector with film screen.

The kitchen is ready for you to make your own breakfast/brunch/supper with equipment for 8 guests, with teas, coffee and milk provided and a range of sizes of cafeterias to make decent coffee. Or just step outside and hop into one of the coffee shops in the town.

We own and run Kevis House in the centre of Petworth. The two upper floors of the building are dedicated to the self- contained Penthouse with it's own independent access, through a pretty private courtyard and in the ground floor we run Kevis House Gallery with separate access on Lombard St. We love the town we work in and all the people here, we live on a hill just 2 miles away. We are very keen walkers, gardeners, enjoy cooking, reading, singing and listening to music, art (of course!) and even historic cars with an Austin 7 that occasionally can be spotted in town. Most favourite of all - Lucca our fox red labrador! Do come and stay...
