The perfect holiday retreat in a tranquil Sussex village in the heart of the South Downs. In the heyday of the diminutive Ferguson Tractor this was the tractor shed at Sutton Farm. As tractors grew in size it soon became redundant, however the Old Tractor Shed is still very much part of a small working farm set in the most beautiful Sussex village of Sutton. This is an imaginative conversion; it is very rustic and provides comfortable accommodation for up to five people. The Old Tractor Shed is located on a 100-acre farm combining arable and sheep farming along with fabulous views to the South Downs. Stay here in early spring and the new born lambs can be seen in the barn immediately behind the accommodation.
The accommodation is cleverly arranged over three floors. On the ground floor enjoying full length windows is the main living room and kitchen combining as a large open space area. The principal double bedroom with a shower room is also on the ground floor while the second bedroom, fitted with twin beds and an en-suite bathroom is on the first floor. From the ground floor head down a few steps and there is a second living space with sofa bed looking onto the lane. Outside there is a private patio that is a wonderful suntrap that enjoys the afternoon and evening sun. Within the farm there is also stabling facilities for up to two horses plus use of a paddock.
Sutton is one of four picturesque Sussex villages along with Barlavington, Bignor and West Burton that sit in line at the foot of the South Downs. These traditional villages are of great appeal to visitors and the area affords much peace and tranquillity. The local pub in Sutton in the heart of the village is just 200 yards away and is open for breakfast lunch and dinner. It’s a free house serving local cask ales beers and wines together with locally sourced high quality traditional British pub food with a contemporary accent. There are many local footpaths and bridleways and footpaths climb up from the village onto the Downs, however if you are feeling less energetic there is a car park at Whiteways beside Bury Hill approximately 3 miles to the east or you can take the lane to the Downs from Bignor and park at the top beside the South Downs Way. This is where Stane Street the Roman road crosses the South Downs on route from London towards Eartham and Chichester giving a choice of good walking in that direction or east or west along the line of the Downs. The historic market town of Petworth is 4 miles to the north and is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown, and the house is now owned by the National Trust. The magnificent country house contains an internationally renowned art collection with numerous works by Turner, Petworth itself was immortalised in his paintings. The town is full of quaint houses and cottages many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops and tearooms so it is worth taking the time to browse having visited Petworth House. To the east there is Amberley Working Museum and the small community of Houghton on the River Arun. Beach 15½ miles. Shop 3 miles, pub 200 yards, restaurant 4 miles.
