The space
The apartment is attached to our C18th farm cottage called 'Bedham Cottage' where we live. We are located along a secluded country lane nestled to the hillside in the tiny hamlet of Bedham. Overlooking one of the oldest woodlands in South-East England, it is a perfect rural retreat, surrounded by majestic trees and an abundance of wildlife that can be enjoyed at all times of the year.

The apartment is self-contained on two levels with its own entrance. It has wood-panelled walls and solid oak floors throughout and the decoration is highly personalised with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture. The walls are covered in art and there is a diverse selection of books, journals, boardgames and toys as well as a 50" smart TV, DVD and Wi-fi.

The lower floor is an open plan living space that has a well equipped kitchen, dining area and a comfortable lounge with a large picture window overlooking the woodlands. The back door leads out from the kitchen to a paved patio with table and chairs set under a glass roof and a BBQ that is ideal for alfresco meals. A small banked garden surrounding the patio provides complete privacy and in Springtime is full of wild flowers. Another paved terrace has a chiminea that can be lit on chilly evenings to provide a little warmth whilst listening to the owls at dusk.

Upstairs is a delightfully light and airy bedroom with an en suite bathroom that has an excellent power shower. French doors lead onto a large roof terrace overlooking a semi wild garden and the woods beyond. This makes a superb spot for breakfast in the summer or evening drinks as the light fades.

Where you’ll be

Fittleworth, West Sussex, United Kingdom

We are surrounded by ancient woods within the South Downs National Park and under the protection of both the Woodland Trust and the Sussex Wildlife Trust. We are also close to the South Downs Way.
So for the nature lover, you can immerse yourself all year round; from the spectacle of bluebells in Spring to mushroom foraging in Autumn, from the incredible ‘dawn chorus’ of Summer to bracing Winter walks.

The music festival in the summer is well worth a visit.
