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.
