The detail

Set amongst the olive trees in a secluded, quiet and peaceful location, Olive Tree House is a unique, oak clad, romantic bolt hole boasting stunning rural views. The village of Ripe is within walking distance and the historic town of Lewes and the Sussex coast are both just an easy 20 to 30 minute drive away.

Tastefully decorated in a traditional rustic cabin style, Olive Tree House has a cosy authentic feel with internal timber clad walls, floors and ceilings throughout. The living space is open-plan and has all you need for a relaxing stay. The kitchen is well-equipped including an electric Aga and the dining and sitting area is complete with a cosy wood burning stove. French doors lead out onto the landscaped deck, which overlooks the beautiful gardens. When it's time for bed, slide back the barn door to reveal the romantic bedroom suite with its own doors to the terrace. Here you can soak in the decadent slipper bath before climbing into the comfortable cast iron super-king size bed. The owners have really thought of everything, there is even a wall mounted fire in the bedroom to keep you toasty and warm on cooler evenings. After a refreshing night’s sleep, the invigorating rain shower in the en-suite wet room is the perfect way to start your day.

Outside, enjoy the breath-taking rural views from the raised, balconied terrace or climb down to the wood fired, eco hot tub to soothe away the day. As night falls, light the fire pit and enjoy starry evenings and the sound of nearby wildlife.

Don’t forget your walking boots as there are an array of wonderful country walks and woodlands to explore. Ripe has an excellent village shop providing an abundance of fresh produce, a good selection of wines, a café with homemade treats, a pop up pub; and there’s also a fish and chip van that visits the village on Thursdays.

The historic market town of Lewes offers restaurants, cafés, independent retailers, antique shops and a farmer’s market on the first Saturday of every month. The glorious Sussex coast can be reached in under half an hour’s drive where breath-taking cliff top walks and stunning seascapes are waiting to be discovered.

What a gem! We spent the most glorious week here at Olive Tree House, it was the perfect spot to celebrate our 20 years together. The cabin and the gardens are beautiful, you can really feel the love that Debbie & Tom have put into the place. It is choc full of everything you're going to need and the hosts are very friendly, welcoming & accommodating; you won't want for anything. It's a fab location for exploring East Sussex and there's also plenty of walks on your doorstep if you don't fancy heading out in the car. Or even to just sit on the deck with a glass of wine enjoying the view is heaven. The kitchen is great, we had fun getting to grips with the aga. The fire is gorgeous. The bed is huge and super comfy, we slept well. The bath is lovely and the shower was fabulous! The village has a brilliant shop where we topped up on goodies a few times and they have lovely coffee too. On the Thursday night it transformed into the local pub for a night which was wonderful; it's such a nice community. One day we walked over to a neighbouring village in Upper Dicker to their Village Shop & Cafe. It was brilliant and we were thrilled to see a selection of vegan options, the vegan breakfast was cracking! We can't rave about this place enough, it's an absolute beauty. A perfect holiday home to find some peace, to relax and to recharge. Thank you Debbie & Tom for a delightful stay, we loved it and hope to return in the future x
