A contemporary, light-filled studio retreat with a private outdoor hot tub, pet-friendly and secluded in an East Sussex village at the foot of the South Downs.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Peacefully secluded in Westmeston, an ancient East Sussex village at the foot of the scenic South Downs, The Garden Room is a stylish, pet-friendly studio retreat that brings the outside, inside.

Boasting relaxed, open plan accommodation generously spaced across one level, enormous bi-fold doors span the full length of the retreat, so daylight floods cheerfully throughout. On sunny days, you can open up those doors fully, for joyous al fresco living without leaving the room.

Built in 2016, the modern studio features all the contemporary, high-end features you might expect. Underfloor heating will keep you perfectly cosy on chillier evenings, as you sink into the huge sofa, and fire up the Bluetooth speakers (or turn on the Freeview TV!)

Meanwhile, the kingsize bedroom is primed for long, lazy lie-ins, with plenty of handy storage space that’s cleverly concealed by a full-length curtain. Complete your freshen-up routine in the gleaming bathroom, with its sleek tiling, and full-size bath with shower over.

The well-equipped kitchen features everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast, and you’ll find a welcome basket packed with goodies to help get your stay off to a tempting start.  

Although there’s a comfy dining area inside, why not head out to the patio instead, and savour your first meal of the day over a gentle soundtrack of birdsong and rustling leaves?

Don’t fancy exploring? That’s fine… just relax in your south-west-facing private garden with a good book, then take a well-deserved afternoon dip in the hot tub (perhaps accompanied by a glass of bubbles, if you’re in an indulgent mood!)

More information

But if you change your mind, you’ll discover two excellent pubs in walking distance, while the South Downs National Park is almost literally on the doorstep. Here you can immerse yourselves in all the charms of nature, from enchanting ancient woodland to deep, sparkling river valleys.

Jump in the car to visit nearby Lewes, home to artisan shops and markets, or if you’ve brought your bike, head out on the National Cycle Route to visit Middle Farm, with its mouth-watering deli, tea shop, and cider barn (and farm shop, should you wish to bring any goodies back!)

If you prefer the fresh sea air, you could always head out on a day trip to quirky, vibrant Brighton instead; famous for its long beach, novelty shops, and amusement-packed pier.

(As much fun as the local area offers, we know you’ll want to get back to The Garden Room in time to catch that awe-inspiring sunset… so don’t stay out too late!)

Things to note

A travel cot and highchair are available on request. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome to stay, at a small additional charge.
