This lovely holiday home is set in the Sussex village of Turners Hill, only a few minutes’ drive from Ashdown Forest, West Sussex.
Above the owner's double garage and over two floors, this spacious accommodation is beautifully decorated, tastefully furnished and equipped to the highest standard, making this into a highly desirable self-catering holiday home.
The light, bright open plan living area with its contemporary kitchen makes this an ideal choice for families and couples to get together after days out exploring the walks and woodlands that are so popular in this part of Sussex.
The large master bedroom is off the living area and the family bedroom, which can accommodate up to four, is on the floor above, making this an ideal choice when larger or extended families or couples are holidaying together, and with both bedrooms each having their own en-suite shower rooms privacy is guaranteed.
If you prefer to dine in a more formal setting, perhaps you have a special event to celebrate while on holiday or you wish to enjoy long lingering dinners over wine and soft lighting, then this cottage also has a separate dining room.
French doors lead from the sitting room area out onto the raised decking with views over the lake and woodland, where guests can relax and unwind while watching the wild-life swoop and fish swim in the lake just below.
If the sun becomes a little too strong, no need to return indoors there is an extending canopy to protect you so whatever the weather you can still enjoy the outdoors without leaving your wonderful home from home.
The village of Turners Hill is only a short walk from the door and here you will find all that you would expect from a true Sussex village.
Two pubs overlook a village green, each serving delicious meals and offer local ales, so no need to prep and peel, roast and stir, just make for The Crown or Red Lion and then enjoy someone else’s hard work before walking back to the welcome of your holiday cottage, and maybe a glass or two sitting watching as the moonlight dances on the lake below before you retire to bed, perfect!

Turners Hill is a quiet, peaceful village in rural Sussex, full of old world charm and character. Due to this the village centre has been designated as a conservation area and is picture perfect in every way with a central village green and with it's local shops and pubs forming the focal point. There are two excellent pubs one overlooking the village green,The Red Lion and The Crown, both serve local ales and delicious home cooked meals with produce sourced from farms nearby. If dining out is part of your holiday experience then you will certainly be spoilt for choice in this location! You can sample everything from a Sussex cream tea to dining at a grand Michelin Star, three rosettes restaurant and almost within walking distance! Many of the buildings surrounding the village date from the 17th and 18th centuries and a number are listed, so take time to explore the village before setting off to discover the Hundred Acre Wood that Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and all their friends trampled through created in the books by A.A.Milne and based in the Ashdown Forest only a few miles away. Ashdown Forest, originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times is really more heathland with several scattered villages dotted around. Full of exciting places to visit including National Trust Properties, Heritage Steam Railways, Art Galleries, Theatres and Museums. Here there is fun and activities for the whole family: cycling, canoeing, climbing, bush craft, survival skills, golf, walking and wine tasting, to name but a few. Ardingly is only a few miles from Turners Hill and is probably best known for hosting the annual South of England Show held in June and offers events and exhibitions over a three day period. Of course, it does lie dormant during the rest of the year, but puts on everything from Christmas and International antique and collectors fairs to dog shows, cycling events and even Moonlight Balls. So check out what is on while you are in the area.Turners Hill, a quiet piece of rural Sussex, but certainly never boring!!
