SPRING COTTAGE, AMBERLEY, SUSSEX
Spring Cottage is a much-loved family home which has been decorated in traditional English style with pretty colours and antique furniture. The country kitchen (with Smeg fridge, Lacanche range cooker and dishwasher) offers all facilities to prepare your own meals if you wish to eat at home. The dining area in the sitting room features a large Georgian mahogany table and chairs and grandfather clock. There is a large fireplace for colder evenings flanked by comfortable armchairs and a beautiful Liberty’s chaise longue with a television, DVD player and internet-based film and TV streaming. Two double bedrooms are served by two bathrooms (including showers and roll-top bath) and there is a third bedroom/sitting area upstairs, it is small but has a double bed, so can be used either as a dressing room or as a third bedroom sharing the bathroom with the master.
A secluded courtyard leads off the kitchen and glazed doors open from the dining area to a large terrace with swing-seat and the terraced garden overlooking Amberley Wildbrooks Nature Reserve. The views from here and from the upstairs master bedroom are wonderful and you can sit for hours watching the wildlife and enjoying nature. The pretty garden is not overlooked so offers complete privacy. Steps lead down from the terrace and on each level, you can stop to cut your own flowers or maybe sit in the hot tub while you enjoy those views.
When it’s cold you can light the fire in the sitting-room and enjoy a cosy winter evening with a good book or maybe drink a glass of English wine or beer under the stars from the warmth of the hot tub. We cater for all weathers by offering our guests a selection of umbrellas, jackets, scarves and wellies during their stay.
Your local representatives will be waiting to greet you on arrival. Our concierge will answer any questions and advise you – not only recommending restaurants and local pubs but also can organise your visits to cultural or sporting events, theatres, musicals and many other events.
