An idyllic 3 bedroom cottage in the heart of the South Down National Park, with incredible views over the Sussex Weald. Coopers Cottage is a beautifully decorated and wonderfully comfortable converted 18th century farm building, with its own small private garden and stunning views. It is ideal for walking in historic Petworth Park and Ebernoe Nature Reserve, visiting Petworth House, award-wining local pubs and shops, Goodwood Festival of Speed, polo at Cowdray and is great for cyclists.
This charming cottage is surrounded by countryside, ancient woodlands and truly magnificent views. It is ideal as a romantic hideaway for two, a family holiday home for 6, or a stylish getaway for friends. Coopers Cottage is a 18th century farm building that has been carefully restored and reconfigured into the perfect holiday cottage. The cottage has been stylishly and elegantly decorated, and has been designed to give you a truly comfortable stay. You have your own parking area for cars and bikes, and a small fenced private garden with a table and chairs, with a short brick path up to the front door. The double height sitting room has old stone walls and original beams. There are two sofas with beautiful silk Ikat cushions and a shearling throw to cuddle up with, as you sit and relax, or enjoy the view. There is a collection of books, binoculars, games, sky TV and Wifi. The modern kitchen is light and airy, with a large farmhouse table and chairs. The Master Bedroom has a King sized French Sleigh bed and an en suite bathroom with a roll top bath. There is a double bedroom with a Queen sized brass bed and a good sized twin bedroom, which share a family shower room. The beds are made up with crisp white bed linen and warm bed throws, with smart fluffy towels.
The views from the kitchen, sitting room, master bedroom and bathroom are simply stunning...miles across the Sussex Weald, which is breath taking and uplifting, even on a chilly February day! The view changes throughout the year, in Autumn the colours can rival New England and in Spring the woods are full of bluebells. You will find a well-positioned table and chairs in the garden, overlooking the view, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee, or a glass of wine in the evening! From here you can watch buzzards and kites soaring across the sky and at certain times of the year, you can hear nightingales in the surrounding woods.
Coopers Cottage is accessed up the farm drive, past the host's house, with your own parking outside the cottage garden. There is a brick path up to the front door.
