Come to relax and recharge, perhaps write or paint. Vicky and David love having guests and creating delicious meals from local and home-grown produce; their farmhouse table overlooks the garden, or you can eat outside in the orchard or on the terrace. Bedrooms (one downstairs) are named after birds and have pretty fabrics and garden flowers; hop up more stairs to the attic twin (mind your head in the shower room!). Brighton and Glyndebourne are close; walk the South Downs Way, explore the coast, book one of Vicky’s writer retreats or winter workshops. David is making a shepherd’s hut so you’ll soon be able to sleep under the stars too.
