I'm Katie, married to Gareth. Former townies, we moved to our home in the countryside in 2014 because we wanted to raise our family in peaceful, green, rural surroundings.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Owner chose Slaugham
Lavender Cottage is next door to our home, and we love this place because it's so green, quiet and so close to nature.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love life on the Lane - from the animals who live on the Farm nearby, to the green trees and woodlands which we love to explore, the beauty of wildflowers, and all the nature on our doorstep - rabbits, deer, foxes, badgers, owls, buzzards, pheasants to name but a few visitors.

A week in Sussex
Comfortable and nicely placed base for exploring the glories of Sussex. Within reach of Petworth, Knepp Wildland and the Downs. Beautiful NT garden at Nymans a few minutes down the road.
A lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings. Well equipped with everything we needed and spotlessly clean.
Great! Quiet, secluded and peaceful!
We were super impressed by how clean the place was and how neatly everything had been kept. Katie was very very helpful with any queries we had and left us to have a lovely week. Couldn’t have asked for anything more!
Cottage was perfect- clean, comfy and had everything you could wish for. It was a perfect base for visiting the many public/ NT gardens in the area. Welcome pack was a nice touch.
