About Caroline Chaplin
We moved our family to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in summer 2015 after 15 years living in London. We have settled very quickly into village life.
Caroline Chaplin purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Caroline Chaplin chose Danehill
Our idyllic location allows daily commuting to London in just over 1 hour but a restful time at home, enjoying generally very good weather (different to my native Scotland!) and the stunning rural setting of a wooded valley.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our home, Avenings Farm and White Rose Cottage next door are set in more than 9 acres of land, allowing us the space to grow our own fruit and vegetables and a local farmer to keep his sheep in our field. We also have a rowing boat which can be used on our small lake and an enclosed (to keep the sheep out!) 5-a-side football pitch with goals.

Lovely Place in the Countryside with a marvelous garden
White Rose Cottage is a very nice place for a holiday in the countryside with plenty things to see nearby. We enjoyed 9 days the very well equipped house. The garden is big and very nice. Our son (6) enjoyed the football-place and we even observed deers nearby the house. It is a quite place but many top sightseeing spots of Sussex are nearby, we visited Sheffield Garden and Park twice. There are plenty opportunities for hiking. The welcome and the service was very friendly, and we enjoyed tomatoes, potatoes, jam, eggs and apple juice direct from the farm. With a very good Pub some hundred meters away it was not even necessary to cook every evening, however the kitchen of white rose cottage has everything you need. Thanks to Caroline and her family for very enjoyable holidays.
A car, or friends/family to do the runs, as we did, is essential. Unless you are good walkers.
We were three adults and found the accommodation excellent. Everything we needed to know was efficiently documented. Also very well equipped. Housekeeping definitely 5*+, and added to this the wonderful touches of local produce in our welcome pack we're very much appreciated. The use of the outside space was a bonus.
