Cottage
Lovely 200 year old cottage on the South Downs. Exposed wooden beams. Wooden floors. Two log burning stoves. You'll need to light them if you get cold. Three double beds; two iron and one brass (very high). A lovely garden with a large timber frame undercover area for eating outdoors whilst you look over the fields around you. Fabulous views. Very cosy and snug. Parking. A true sanctuary....Lovely 200 year old cottage on the South Downs. Exposed wooden beams. Wooden floors. Two log burning stoves.

Loved The Sanctuary - so comfortable & well thought out. Crammed with character /artwork. Set in beautiful countryside - great garden to relax in/BBQ. Book it if it’s available - it’s a lovely haven.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Very good to know you enjoyed staying at the cottage. The cottage has been here for 200 years, so if you want to return one day, hopefully, it will still be here :-)

About the neighbourhood
The Cycle Sanctuary is located in the South Downs National Park, on top of the South Downs, 100 metres from the South Downs Way long distance footpath and cycleway. It is set in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). It's a beautiful part of the world. The cottage is in the small village of Beauworth (Pronounced 'Bew-worth') which has just 90 residents. It is the second smallest village in Hampshire with just a church and a 400 year old pub, The Milburys, just 200 metres from the cottage and serving delicious food and beer. When the weather turns cold, the pub has a huge open fire to keep you warm. It also has a cat called Bob, who's clearly eaten too much, a very friendly landlord and a 100 metre (300 feet) deep well. The well is amazing. The cottage is surrounded by open co...
Getting around
If you see a bus go past the cottage, you're not staying in the right place. You really really do need your own transport. Bicycle, motorbike, car, motorhome, will all work well. You could get a taxi to the cottage from Southampton Airport or from Winchester Train Station. Have your food delivered by on-line shopping and just walk on all the beautiful trails around us. The South Downs Way. The Wayfarers Walk. The Monarchs Way and many many walking paths.
