About the property

The Straw House - sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

A design by Ben Law who often sources his material from the Cowdray Estate. This unique property has its walls as the name suggests with straw, so it is exceptionally well insulated and traditional in feel with its thick walls. A special place to stay just north of Steyning, it will sleep up to six guests in three bedrooms although one of the rooms with twin beds is a mezzanine level from the main room. It is a feature room built around a fascinating frame structure.

The two other bedrooms are on the ground floor. The principal bedroom has a king sized bed and is next door to the family bathroom with both a shower and a separate shower cubicle. The second bedroom has twin beds and an ensuite shower room. The house is wrapped with a terrace and has it own private garden area. It is part of a working farm where guests are able to see the farm by arrangement.

Steyning area

Just three miles to the south, Steyning is a small market town that sits right beneath the South Downs and is full of pretty listed buildings. It is perfect for those who enjoy walking either along the South Downs Way or walking north on the Downslink path that eventually links with the North Downs. Steyning is close to Brighton and Hove, the cosmopolitan city on the south coast coast with its many attractions form the Royal Pavilion, diverse shops, the pier and theatres. Due south is Worthing a more traditional seaside town. On top of the Downs there are great walks to Chanctonbury Ring and Cissbury Ring.

The straw house is beautiful, lovely decor, nice and clean. Just what we were looking for.

Brownies and fresh flowers were on the table when we arrived. The owner was a lovely, friendly lady and the cottage had everything and more that you could need.
