About Caroline Beckett
We couldn't believe our luck when we finally moved into Greenhurst early in 2013. The house and cottage had been empty for several years, and we spent our first year working to restore the cottage to its former glory. As a family, we have spent the past ten years staying in various holiday cottages around Britain, and have been very lucky with the places we have stayed. We have been determined to present the cottage to a standard that we would be delighted to stay in ourselves.
Caroline Beckett purchased this cottage in 2013
Why Caroline Beckett chose Thakeham
We fell in love with this area of Sussex 15 years ago, when we moved here from Kent. The house and cottage came as a package, and were irresistible, packed with character and charm. The location is a ideal for us, offering the peace and quiet we wanted from a rural location, but with all the amenities we need to make life easy nearby.
What makes this cottage unique
With beautiful surrounding countryside providing a peaceful retreat, we enjoy walking over the nearby fields to the pub for Sunday lunch, or cycling up the Downs. The garden was previously opened to the public by the previous owners, and contains a wide variety of unusual plants that keep us busy through the year (though to be honest, mum's been here most weekends working on the garden for us!).
