Holiday Home to the celebrated Victorian artist Edward Burne-Jones in the late 1800s and the inspiration for Angela Thirkell's autobiographical Three Houses (1931), Prospect Cottage is a cherished family home that is steeped in history. A stay here will place you at the heart of its history and you will be among the many celebrities to have passed through its front door including Burne-Jones's nephews Rudyard Kipling and Stanley Baldwin.
A picturesque escape, this stunning Grade II Listed cottage, which has retained many of its original features, stands proudly across from the colourful and vibrant Kipling Gardens which can be viewed from the decked roof terrace or enjoyed with an afternoon picnic in the delightful walled rose garden. A place where the Burne-Jones's could escape the London social whirl, Prospect Cottage remains a peaceful retreat and is perfectly situated a short walk away from the village's five traditional pubs, cosy tea-rooms, family friendly pebbled beaches, and the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park. Bustling Brighton, with its more cosmopolitan vibe, is easily reached by a regular bus service which operates a short walk away.
