The Details...

The Artisan Bakehouse is comprised of two 16th-century farmhouse cottages in 5 acres of beautiful gardens. It can be found just north of the beautiful Sussex village of Steyning on the edge of the South Downs National Park.

The cottages are available for weekly rental from Friday until Friday, or short breaks from Friday until Monday. Minimum 3 night stay.

The Brewhouse sleeps four people and the Milkhouse can three to four. The properties connect via an interconnecting soundproof door which can be opened so that the property can be used as one larger cottage. These adjacent cottages can be hired separately or together to make the ideal base for exploring the idyllic Sussex countryside.

The Brewhouse living room is dominated by rustic beams and a huge inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove, the perfect combination for a cosy night in. The kitchen is equally homely, with a centrepiece Aga alongside a dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. An en suite double bedroom with king-size bed and a twin room can also be found here, as well as a TV, DVD player, iPod dock and Wi-Fi.

The Brewhouse prices range from £850-£1025 for seven nights and £475-£625 for short breaks.

The Milkhouse has the use of a large conservatory, looking out over the garden to the woods beyond. A bathroom with beautiful roll-top bath and a children’s suite with a single and roll-out bed are among its special features, and you will also find a king-size double, a kitchenette and feature fireplace in the living room.

The Milkhouse prices range from £800-£975 for seven nights and £475-£625 for short breaks.

Both the Bakehouse cottages have use of a private garden with outdoor furniture and, from May to September, guests can also enjoy a heated outdoor swimming pool. You can truly relax with a pampering visit from a beauty and massage therapist, while the children can burn off energy on the swings and trampoline, or make friends with the chickens or cute pet rabbit.

The Artisan Bakehouse is so-named because, in addition to its charming accommodation, it also offers bread and pizza-making workshops, and afternoon tea in its delightful tea barn and garden. Bookings for these can be made by arrangement.

Less than 3 miles south, pretty Steyning is within easy reach and bears all the hallmarks of a small Sussex town, and acts as a gateway to the glorious South Downs. They’re also little more than 30 minutes’ drive from the south coast’s most exuberant city, Brighton. The Artisan Bakehouse is perfectly placed to offer as much relaxation or adventure as you can handle.
