B&B in a recycled cabin in East Chiltington, rural Lewes, and in the South Downs National Park, where the focus is on macrobiotic and whole foods.
Experience a truly bespoke recycled cabin with whole food breakfast (accommodating vegetarians, vegans, & those with specialised diets). Situated in an area of outstanding beauty in the South Downs National Park, the accommodation lies in the gentle, rural hamlet of East Chiltington. Here, you can walk, cycle or horse-ride along the South Downs Way, enjoy traditional ales & high quality food at the local Jolly Sportsman or Half Moon pub, visit Plumpton Agricultural College or Plumpton horse racing, and the artist's community of Ditchling.
Within a 30 minute drive are many other local attractions: the historical towns of Lewes and Brighton, the Universities of Sussex and Brighton, the internationally renowned Glyndebourne opera, the spectacular Seven Sisters coastline (e.g. Burling Gap, Cuckmere Haven); the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry is nearby and there is a fast train connection to London at Plumpton, in the neighbouring village.
Recycled from a de-comissioned Sussex barn, the cabin is something akin to an old fashioned railway carriage with a contemporary twist. It sits in a corner of the garden, & although is in sight of the house, it feels very cosy & private inside. With an abundance of wooden features it has a real grounding & nurturing atmosphere. Very conducive to a good night's sleep.
It is surprisingly spacious, comprising a double cabin bed with natural fibre mattress and bedding, en-suite shower room & w/c, with fridge, butler's sink, washing machine and kettle with complementary herbal teas. Wi Fi connection available. Breakfast is prepared by resident macrobiotic cook. Lunch boxes, lunches and dinners plus macrobiotic cooking tuition are all available on request.
B&B single occupancy: from £35 per night
B&B double occupancy from £65 per night
