Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, Surrey & Kent Cottages
Tucked away off a small, no-through road, high up on the Sussex Downs, The Stables is a state-of-the-art barn conversion enjoying incredible views across fields and to the sea beyond. If you're looking for both tranquillity and luxury from your holiday, then this really will tick all the boxes.
Conceived by the owners as an ultra-modern, boutique style retreat, it's a divine place for a large group to escape to and unwind in splendour. Big picture windows flood the large, double-height living room with light and afford stunning views across an ever-changing, open landscape. The interior has a minimalist feel with underfloor heating, super-smart kitchen, bespoke joinery, pendant lighting and clean lines throughout, yet provides all the comforts guests will need. You can choose to stretch out on the long, L-shaped sofa or cosy up in an armchair next the fire while gorgeous bathrooms and sumptuous bedding will help you relax after a busy day out.
Take a seat on the wonderful terrace with the sea sparkling in the distance and we can guarantee you won't want to move!

The area is a paradise for keen walkers and nature lovers with immediate access to the South Downs Way and to Mill Hill Nature Reserve, a recognised site for the chalk-hill blue butterfly. If you're a keen rider, there are riding stables a few minutes' walk away. The nearest beach is under three miles away at Shoreham-by-Sea, which also offers good shops and pubs in its historic centre (Shoreham Old Town), and walkways leading past yachting basins to its attractive harbour.
Brighton, the south coast's most vibrant seaside town is ten miles away, and a must for a day's exploring, with its iconic Regency, seafront architecture, almost six miles of shingle beach and a plethora of museums, pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
"Back for our annual visit and we loved it! Lovely comfortable accommodation with a beautiful view. Such lovely hosts, can't wait to book back in."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-06-19
"We stayed here for a long weekend with our children and friends. The property is in a beautiful, rural location with a stunning view of the countryside - you can even see the sea! The open plan kitchen, diner, sitting room area is really lovely, and great for a break with friends. The entire property is finished to a very high spec. and you get the impression that this was a labour of love. Even the bedroom doors are really solid and heavy which means there is little chance of the little ones being woken up. It's very close to Brighton so very easy to pop into town to see the sights and the beach. The only small change I would make is to perhaps have a blind on the large windows. The view is spectacular so I can see why this was omitted but I imagine in the summer you might want to block off the glare of the sun. It wasn't too much of an issue in winter and we didn't mind too much as the views were beautiful."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-03-07
"A group of 7 of us stayed at the Stables for two nights in November. The accommodation was fantastic - the beds were huge and comfortable, the living space was finished to a really high quality but retained a comfortable, homely feeling (the log burner is a lovely touch), and the shower and bath rooms were immaculate. The owner, Emma, couldn't have been more helpful in terms of answering any questions we had before arriving, and recommended fantastic local pubs and restaurants where the food and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. I can't recommend this place highly enough, and we will definitely be back (hopefully when the weather is better!)."Mr Muse 2015-11-01
