You are free to wander around the garden at your leisure. The Summer House has its own private patio but is set in 3.5 acres of garden and woodland with far reaching views over the Weald.
Help yourself to vegetables and fresh herbs.
You can pull as many weeds as you like too!

The summer house is a really lovely space for two people - clean, sunny and well equipped. Very practical base for hikes along the Devil's Dyke and further afield. Lovely hosts, Ngaire and John made us feel very welcome and were very helpful with suggestions. We will be coming back soon!

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely couple of nights at the Summer House over the Easter weekend. It is a perfect location for a quiet mini get away. The summer house is clean, tidy and well equipped. Ngaire was friendly and very helpful but also gave us space. The location is both perfect for walking on the South Downs way and visiting Brighton. There are many great pubs in the area within walking distance and there is also a great farm shop down the road. Ngaire had stocked the summer house with tea, coffee and milk but there was also towels, shampoo and even useful things like cooking oil. The kitchen is well equipped and it was nice to be able to eat our breakfast in the garden in front of the summer house in the Sun. A thoroughly good place to stay.

Highly recommended. Ngaire was the perfect host. The location is fantastic with easy access to the South Downs walks yet only 7 miles to the centre of Brighton. The Summerhouse has a fully fitted kitchen with tea, coffee milk etc provided, although if you prefer to eat out the local village pub is just a minutes walk away. There are other nearby eateries and food stores 5-10 min drive away. The Summerhouse is spacious and light streams in through the bank of glass doors that also enable you to fully appreciate the beautiful garden and outreaching views. Very comfy bed with quality furnishings throughout. Great WiFi connection and dog friendly. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Ngaire

The summerhouse is beautifully situated and a fabulous garden. It was packed with spring flowers when we were there. Everything is to a very high standard and Ngaire was a very responsive host - thank you.

The summer house is a lovely place in a beautiful setting. It has particularly great views of the setting sun over rolling hills. A short walk to the local pub which does great food. Also very close to a number of pictureque public footpaths. Easiest reached with a car, but we had no trouble getting taxis back in the evening from Brighton (about 15 mins). A great place to stay with lovely hosts.
