The property

Small Dole 2.5 miles.

An inviting, semi-detached dwelling, offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and an idyllic base from which to discover Sussex, 1 Paythorne Farm Cottage is wonderfully suited to families or groups of friends seeking an escape in the South Downs National Park.

In a rural position, with the nearby village of Small Dole offering all the essential amenities for a self-catered stay, this charming cottage is sure to be a base you'll want to return to.

The modest-sized sitting room offers a homely aura and a lovely spot to spend your evenings with your loved ones in front of the warming electric fire, a family-favourite film on the television, or enjoy more formal moments together within the dining room where you can tuck into a tasty home-cooked meal or even use this space to play board games brought from home!

Move through into the well-equipped kitchen and let the beautiful aromas of your favourite foods fill the room, the television offering your entertainment while you get to work with the good range of utensils and appliances at hand.

The front patio makes the perfect spot to dine alfresco as you soak in your remarkable views, your canine companion at your side at the end of another wonderful day.

Climb the staircase to find the two bedrooms laid out as a double and a twin, offering a lovely layout for a family of four, while the wonderfully spacious family bathroom can be found on this floor too, letting you prepare for your fun-filled days in style.

The local village of Fulking makes a beautiful base, with the Beeding Hill to Newtimber Hill Site of Special Scientific Interest and the National Trust wonder of Devil's Dyke on your doorstep, there's plenty of scenic walking routes to discover here, as well as a welcoming pub and The Dyke Golf Club being within easy reach too.

A wider selection of pubs and eateries can be found in nearby Small Dole, where you can also find the wonderful Woods Mill Nature Reserve, or if you're seeking a more challenging ramble, explore the surrounding area of the South Downs National Park, home to rich heritage and culture, stargazing amongst the International Dark Sky Reserve, wildlife spotting and so much more, it makes a fantastic family day out with walks and cycling routes for all abilities.

Venture to Henfield for a day of retail therapy, with plenty of tearooms to while the hours away in for a tasty treat and a leisurely day out with your loved ones, or venture out to Brighton, a bustling city with a traditional coastal pier, an aquarium, a scatter of museums and art galleries and so much more, there's something here for every taste.

About the location


Henfield 2 miles; Poynings 4.5 miles; Shoreham-by-Sea 7 miles; Hove 8 miles; Worthing 10 miles; Brighton 10 miles; Arundel 15 miles; Gatwick Airport 20 miles.

Small Dole is a village in Sussex only two miles from the larger market town of Henfield. This village is set right on the edge of the South Downs National Park, making this a very popular location for visitors wanting to stay somewhere rural and rustic, but with all the amenities of a much larger village. The Fox pub is a well visited establishment offering a full and varied menu for lunches and dinners, as well as a good selection of real ales and local bottle beers. Definitely a pub that should be on your holiday agenda! For those visitors who enjoy exploring the countryside, whether it be a cyclist or on foot, then this part of Sussex is a perfect choice either for a weekend or a longer stay, and whatever the weather, the walks, wildlife and nature trails will have you coming back time and again. Some walks start right from the centre of the village where Woods Mill Nature Reserve, which is part of the Sussex Wildlife Trust, is based. Why not look them up before you arrive and find out all the information in advance, including facilities, length and expected time of walking, as well as how easy or difficult the terrain can be? Of course it will be the views of the South Downs that will have you gazing in admiration, and if you find you are a little breathless, well that may be also due to climbing the Downs! For some quaint-style shopping then Henfield is only two miles away. With tea rooms and shops selling all sorts of local produce, pubs and takeaways, bistros and bakers, Henfield also has a library and museum. So why not take a stroll along the high street and see what you make of this perfect example of Sussex country life. Small Dole may be small in name, but never in what it has to offer!
