The Print Studio is a perfect hideaway in beautiful surroundings just outside the village of Compton. Set within the Owner's grounds, the cottage is surrounded by the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park.
The cottage has a natural and welcoming decor which is accentuated by the multitude of artistic prints which reflect the Owners' graphic design background showing both local and Asian influences. The kitchen is well equipped and welcoming with all the requirements for a short break away and the option for both inside and outside dining. The ground floor bathroom has a bright, fresh feel with a shower cubicle, basin and WC.
The bedroom, with an option for a super-king or twin beds, is a tranquil, spacious area providing direct access through patio doors onto the cottage garden area. Upstairs, you will find the cosy TV viewing lounge with two comfortable armchairs to relax in after your days' excursions.
The south facing terrace at the front of The Print Studio provides a lovely seating area for a morning cup of coffee while the garden at the side catches the afternoon sun. On occasion, you can spot the Bantam chickens roaming across the Owners' garden in front of the cottage and there are friendly sheep in the fields behind.
There is parking provided in an open door garage area at the rear of the cottage which then directly leads onto public bridleways to walk out over the Downs. Given the beautiful rural location, please note that there is limited mobile phone signal.
