A sweetly renovated little brick and flint Dairy building which shares a rustic courtyard with the owners’ large barn – and its own dear little shepherd’s hut. Inside you’ll feel private and cosy, views are over the orchard and garden. Walk straight in to a roomy porch with oak boarding and the kitchen with its original brick floor, an old pine dresser with pretty china, pale blue cupboards and plenty of stuff for even the most demanding cook. The white-painted bathroom is off here, with painstakingly-restored terracotta floor tiles, a proper big white bath and a window. The open-plan sitting room has white walls with a dash of warming red, a white wooden painted floor, comfy sofa, lots of interesting books, an electric wood-burner and an antique chair. Sleep like a log in the squishiest bed with feather and down; your buttery yellow bedroom has one exposed flint wall and thick fabrics. Creative Jinks (who designs and makes jewellery and runs courses) leaves you fresh eggs, flowers, fruit and some basics, but you can walk along the footpath all the way to Ditchling. Breakfast in the east facing courtyard, spend evenings in your own garden with views over the South Downs or bunk down in the thoroughly authentic shepherd’s hut.
