Perfect for exploring Sussex.

"We loved this little cottage. The kitchen and seating area on the ground floor were very well equipped and it was lovely to be able to open the french doors onto the sheltered outside seating area. Upstairs the bed was very comfy. The upstairs sitting room was a bonus for some quiet web browsing. Lots of public footpaths literally from the door take you around fields, along streams and through woods. The lane from the road to the cottage seems longer than you expect and is a little narrow and needs care but this just adds to the charm. All the surrounding villages are worth exploring and we particularly liked Steyning and Hurstpierpoint. "

Comfortable Cosy Cottage in Beautiful location

"Wow! What a beautiful little cottage. Spotlessly clean and very well-equipped with everything you could need from washing-up liquid to salt and pepper. The cooking facilities were excellent and the bed was comfortable. The second sitting-room/study was very useful. Ann and Lawrence the owners who lived adjacent to the cottage were helpful and friendly without being over-intrusive during our stay. The cottage is in a beautiful peaceful location and has direct access onto a bridlepath leading to many glorious walks and also the Downs Link, making it an excellent base for walkers and cyclists. Just over a mile away there are several nice pubs which serve food and a very good village store, bakery and fish and chip shop/takeaway."

Delightful cottage in a peaceful setting

"We had a wonderful stay at Little Lock Cottage. The cottage was very cosy and well-equipped. The furnishings are nice, the kitchen had a good amount of space and utensils and also quality appliances. The hosts, Ann and Lawrence, are congenial and made sure we had everything we needed. The location is great for exploring Sussex & Surrey as well as London. The cottage itself is sited on what was once a large farm and is now tranquil countryside. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. "

sussex cottage

"the cottage was clean and comfortable but might be a bit isolated for some people. A car is a must have. We didn't see the lady owner even though she was home some of the time but he was friendly."

Perfect location

"Beautiful cottage with good facilities. What was really nice was the fact that you had lots of walks directly from the cottage without having to drive anywhere. There was a beautiful river just down the road and the garden was peaceful."

"Absolutely fabulous!!! From the welcome Ann gave us, to the vast range of equipment inside....we couldn't have asked for more. Ann went above and beyond with Little Lock, it was fantastic. The location was ideal for what we wanted. So many thanks to Ann for a lovely weekend!"

A lovely cottage for two close to the South Downs and Sussex Weald – ideal for walkers and cyclists

Little Lock Cottage is adjacent to its owners’ house in the midst of an arable estate and one mile down a private lane serving the farm and the cottages and houses located around it. There is an open plan sitting room and kitchen on the ground floor, with French windows opening out onto a sunny south facing patio area. Upstairs the cottage has a bedroom with a 5' wide double bed. This bed can be split to form two small single beds 2' 6" wide which are recommended as best suited to children. Also upstairs there is a second sitting room/study, and a shower room. All of the upstairs rooms have sloping ceilings and dormer windows giving a very cottagey feel. The upstairs sitting room and bedroom are both dual aspect and very bright and welcoming. This is an ideal cottage for keen walkers and cyclists, being surrounded by bridle paths and footpaths, and within a very short distance of the Downs Link long distance path between Guildford and Shoreham. There is an outside tap for hosing off bicycles after any muddy outings, and secure storage is available for them in one of the owners’ garages.

The patio outside the sitting room has a table and chairs for enjoying outside meals and barbecues, and a Lutyens designed bench for relaxing in the sun. Although this area is close to the owners’ house it is well screened and offers seclusion.

Partridge Green and beyond

Little Lock Cottage is very centrally situated to enjoy a lot of Sussex. West Grinstead Station on the old railway line between Horsham and Shoreham-by-Sea is now part of the Downs Link. It features a railway carriage just beyond the old platform that displays information on the local nature and wildlife in the area. The Downs Link offers excellent walking and cycling opportunities and if you head south from the old station you will soon enjoy beautiful views of the South Downs as you head towards the market towns of Henfield and Steyning.

The South Downs are within easy reach and the popular vantage points of Chanctonbury and Cissbury Rings are due south from Little Lock Cottage. They are both Iron Age hill forts although Chanctonbury Ring is the more famous of the two because of its ring of beech trees originally planted in 1760. To walk between the two rings is a distance of about three miles providing wonderful views over the Downs and out to sea while on clear days Chichester and the Isle of Wight are easily visible from Cissbury Ring.

Heading north the market town of Horsham has good shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. It has retained much of its heritage with fine architecture on view, in particular along the Causeway which is lined with medieval homes that lead to the parish church of St Mary’s, while the Carfax originally a meeting of four ways is now a relaxing place to stop and enjoy a coffee.

There are historic houses and gardens nearby including Parham House and Gardens, Nymans Gardens, High Beeches and Wakehurst Place. Wakehurst Place is an outstanding botanical garden with the world's largest seed conservation project, leased and run by the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

Do take a look at all these and all of the other ‘Places to Visit’ on our website.
