About Saxon Cottage

A charming historic cottage in the pretty market town of Steyning with shops on the doorstep.

Add a little heritage to your holiday when you stay in this charming thatched-roof cottage. You’ll be staying in a property that was built during the reign of Mary Tudor in the 16th-century, where much of its original character remains today. Low ceilings, a large fireplace, wonky beams and latticed windows add to its historic charm. Outside there’s a small enclosed garden that’s a real sun-trap in summer.

Saxon Cottage sits in the historic market town of Steyning, where you’ll find other historic buildings and windings streets brimming with independent shops and cafes. It lies on the edges on the South Downs National Park, so you’ll be in perfect countryside walking territory. 

Hop on your bike and cycle to Devil’s Dyke, the longest, deepest and widest 'dry valley’ in the UK. Or drive just 30 minutes to the quirky seaside town of Brighton for its winding lanes and Victorian seafront.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
