A wonderfully imaginative 'Lodge' style property set in lovely gardens. The 'Colonial', far-Eastern style decor complete with ceiling fans makes it feel like a beach house in Bali. Beautiful views over the Downs can be enjoyed with a glass of wine sitting in the Jacuzzi on the veranda. Alternatively if you turn your head the other way you can watch... More

When my (now) fianceé and I arrived at this wonderful little summer house, we were greeted by a very clean lounge, nicely decorated with far east ornaments; interesting to say the least! The summer house is small, and although it is advertised to fit four people, it would be a little snug, so it's recommended that if there's four of... More
