  • "We were really delighted with the farmhouse it was ideal for our family get together very cosy and comforting."

    Even in the pouring rain and windy weather it was a great place to be in. The garden was beautiful and the views amazing, it was such a shame we couldn't spend time out there due to the weather conditions. I just have one recommendation, although there was only the garden and fields outside the window in the ensuite of the big bedroom, it would have been nice to have a curtain covering the window. Apart from that everything was perfect. It was a wonderful place to stay.

  • "Not at all what I was expecting from the star rating and photographs."

    If RUSTIC OLD charm is your preference then this is the place for you.

  • "Paythorne has bags of charm and is in a stunning setting."

    Beautiful garden and views. You could spend hours exploring just the grounds and the house itself. The location is great with pubs and walks nearby. The listing is not accurate - there are 3 doubles on the first floor, and a double and a triple in the attic rooms. We really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique stay that’s a bit quirky! It feels like it needs a little TLC, especially in the kitchen. It didn’t bother us as we felt it added to the charm, and we weren’t cooking much, but would not recommend to people who prefer a spotless manicured place with mod cons!

  • "We (family of 5) spent a pleasant 2-week holiday at Paythorne Farmhouse."

    The house is really well-equipped (3 fridges!). The kitchen might be a bit dated in parts, but we had everything we needed. We loved the atmosphere of the house with carefully chosen furniture. The garden is really lovely, we spent hours just gazing over the hills. We went for numerous trips around the beautiful countryside, visited castles and of course Brighton. Due to health issues we unfortunately could not go hiking in the hills. Thank you for this joyous and relaxing holiday.

  • "Paythorne Farmhouse is large family home."

    There is a very comfortable lounge, a dining room (with beautiful views of the garden and a wooded valley) along with a conservatory. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need. The master bedroom has a comfortable bed with quality bedclothes that makes for relaxing nights. The large, walk-in, power shower serves as a fine way to greet the day. The garden is beautiful and has a range of plants, shrubs, trees and flowers. On the patio is a garden bench swing where we spent quite some time once it came into the shade - the temperatures this week have been in the high twenties! It is a very quiet and peaceful place. Supplying peanuts for the bird feeder was a great idea as it allowed us to watch birds every day whilst eating our meals, the star of the show being the great spotted woodpecker feeding its young! The Shepherd and Dog pub is just over half a mile away. It serves very good food and has a wide range of beers and wine. The staff are cheerful and friendly. Well worth a visit!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Paythorne Farmhouse."

    It is clearly a much loved and well lived in family home. We loved the location, an unbeatable setting at the foot of the South Downs, we liked the age and character of the house even though some things were a little dated. A well equipped house for larger groups of people, although we were only 2 and enjoyed having the whole house all to ourselves. Gorgeous en-suite master bedroom. A special place. Thank you.

The property

Upper Beeding 3.5 miles.

This charming, period farmhouse sits a rural position in the village of Fulking, within the South Downs National Park.

Boasting a period interior across three floors, Paythorne Farmhouse is a remarkable base to call home whilst exploring West Sussex and the coast.

Spend your down time in the sitting room, featuring exposed beams, traditional furnishings and a woodburning stove set in the large brick fireplace.

Wander to the conservatory for a brighter space, with ample seating and rural views, before heading into the kitchen to conjure up a feast; the rustic AGA cooker awaits!

Carry the conversation into the adjacent dining room and appreciate the far-reaching views, before relocating to the bathrooms to freshen up.

Venture outside to the seating area surrounded by nature or head down the stairs to the large lawn, ideal for games and a picnic.

As the night grows darker, whisk away upstairs and relax in the a king-size and two double bedrooms on the first-floor, whilst there are two further attic bedrooms, accessed via two separate staircases.

Each bedroom has been neutrally presented, and there is also a handy utility room where you can keep on top of your laundry.

Your exploration can begin along the South Downs Way, which is said to be the central thread spanning through the patchwork of culture and nature that is the South Down National Park.

On your return, stop off for a pint and meal at one of the nearby eateries, choose from The Shepherd & Dog and The Royal Oak, both located within two miles.

Head into Small Dole for a further selection of eateries and the scenic Woods Mill Nature Reserve, or take yourself further afield to Henfield for an afternoon of shopping, with a host of tea rooms to while away the hours in.

Within close reach is the city of Brighton, offering a traditional coastal pier, a handful of museums, art galleries, shops and an aquarium, offering a bustling atmosphere and a welcome change of pace.

Paythorne Farmhouse provides a superb retreat for uncovering this southern part of England.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
