Peace and serenity come to mind when we think of Douglas Fir… a wholesome hut quietly nestled beneath an ancient oak tree in rural west Sussex. Every inch of this bespoke hideaway has been thoughtfully created by the lovely owners, from its calming emerald green interiors to the clever design, which utilises the inside space perfectly. Douglas Fir warmly welcomes your four-legged friend, who will love to roam the lush green garden as you pour a glass of your favourite and settle into the unique alfresco seating area. Complete with cosy blankets, plush cushions and firepit to keep you nice and toasty. There is also underfloor heating in the hut, for those out of season escapes.

Step Inside

The hut itself invites you inside with its welcoming aura, you will feel utterly at home from the moment your bags hit the floor. In keeping with its enchanting woodland surroundings, forest green tones fill the hideaway, with pretty plants and leaf prints completing the space. The comfy double bed cleverly folds down from the wall. During the day, you can make use of the lovely dining area for a spot of breakfast or board game (should you be kept inside by the weather). As night falls, pull the bed down from the wall and drift off into a peaceful night's rest. Wake to the sound of birdsong, open the blinds and admire nature’s paradise as you sip your morning brew…bliss! The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything you’ll need to rustle up an intimate dinner for two. Including a gas hob and oven, Belfast sink, fridge, toaster and kettle. The sleek shower-room provides the perfect place to freshen up after exploring the South Downs. You are promised to feel well-rested and content after your stay at Douglas Fir.
