This is a terrific cottage in a wonderful location. We particularly loved the access to the south downs just up the path, and cosy evenings inside in the snug living room, as well as relaxing in the back garden!

Smoking is not permitted in this property.

There is a week-long minimum stay and bookings run from Saturday to Saturday in peak season, although flexible arrival days and shorter lets may be possible out of season.

Costs include the weekly rent, a £30 booking fee and a returnable £200 security deposit. To book requires an immediate, non-refundable deposit of £200 per week booked (booking fee and a portion of the rent) and then the balance, including the security deposit, is due by no later than six weeks before your arrival. For stays of three weeks or more, you may be asked to pay a higher security deposit and/or booking deposit.

The checkout time is 10am on the day of departure – a fine may be applied if you do not leave on time. Please leave the property in good order – dispose of rubbish in external bins and wash up any pots/dishes before you leave. If the accommodation is left in an unreasonably messy or dirty state, requiring deep cleaning, the cost for this will be deducted from your security deposit.

Well behaved adult neutered / spayed dogs are considered on a selective basis and, if approved, a supplement will apply. Please contact the Exclusively team to discuss your pet if you wish to bring them.   Any pet given permission to come must not be allowed on the beds or furniture or left in the property alone.  They must only use a pet bed and pet bowls that you bring with you.  You will be expected to clean up after your pet and are liable for any damage it causes. Please bring a separate towel for your dog to wipe muddy / sandy paws before entering the house.

The security deposit will be returned to you within 1-2 weeks of your departure, minus any deduction for damage, loss or excessive cleaning required.

The property can only be used for the maximum number shown on the booking correspondence. It must not be used for improper, illegal or immoral purposes.
