Located on the South Downs, this lovingly decorated cottage in an idyllic peaceful location ideally suited for couples wanting to explore the Sussex coastline, all just a short distance away.

This bijou romantic retreat is perfect for a couple seeking an idyllic break close to the Sussex coast with their four-legged friend. With miles of glorious walks in the surrounding South Downs as well as on nearby Shoreham beach, it is perfect for romantic walks in the sea air with your waggy-tailed pal.

This intriguing little property is beautifully furnished, with a smart kitchen downstairs and a studio-style living space up the steep stairs to the first floor.

Outside, the picturesque and secluded courtyard is a lovely spot for a romantic meal for two with a glass of something chilled.

Set on the edge of the beautiful South Downs National Park, you and your four-legged friends will be spoilt for choice when it comes to walkies. The pretty village of Steyning (5 miles) has several dog-friendly pubs ideal for a leisurely lunch after a stroll in the fresh air. Head out to famous Devil’s Dyke (12 miles) for superb views of the surrounding countryside or take the short drive down to Shoreham-by-Sea (5 miles) and Brighton a bit further afield, where your beloved pet can run in the waves and enjoy a few games of fetch on the beach.

Excellent location for walking with a range of walks including the South Downs, woods and valleys all from the doorstep. Lovely cottage cleverly designed to make best use of the compact space. Courtyard offered outside space for the dog as well as al fresco dining. Helpful suggestions for walks and eating out.

Perfect location, close to shop, pub and walks from door. Lovely, secluded courtyard to enjoy in good weather. The sloping walls in the main living area would be restrictive for tall people. Compact, but fully functional.

Steve was great, very friendly and welcoming. He explained their new and improved cleaning processes to put our minds at ease and gave us local pub recommendations. Nice little touches like complimentary cookies, milk and fruit juice. There is really everything you might need, including a fan which we used both nights. The enclosed courtyard is lovRead moreely and perfect for al fresco dining, complete with BBQ. Hide

Little Oakwood is wonderful and was the perfect location for our week exploring Sussex and the south coast. Chris and Steve were amazing hosts and were always available if we had any questions. The cottage itself was incredibly clean and comfortable - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again! Keep up the great work!

We had a very pleasant stay at Little Oakwood. Chris and Steve will do all to make it as comfortable as possible. The location in Small Dole is very near to the idyllic South Downs, and near to Brighton and the beaches. It is also very close to many of the National Trust properties. This cottage is a real hidden gem.
