It's perfect for couples wanting a peaceful break, visitors to Glyndebourne or walkers/cyclists to rest after a long day on the South Downs! 'What Knot' is only 100m from the South Downs Way.

The space
'What Knot' retains many of its original features like the natural brick floor and internal wooden cladding which were removed during the conversion and lined with layers of sheeps wool and other natural insulating materials before being replaced. One wall in the downstairs room has been painted with a mural by a local artist.
The kitchen area is equipped with microwave/convection oven, toaster etc.
The following will be provided to get you started: tea, coffee, milk, sugar, eggs, cereal, bread, butter, jam, oil, s&p, w.up liquid.
