More about The Chalet
The Chalet sits on top of a steep hill with magnificent views towards the South Downs. Ponds have encouraged a myriad of wildlife, including newts, frogs, grass snakes, ducks and herons and a Badger sett. Deer and their fawns are seen regularly enjoying the plants on the terraces! Woodlands and grasslands attract owls, sparrowhawks, kestrels, woodpeckers, black caps, gold finches and numerous other birds. Wild areas of buddleias, thistles and nettles lure a variety of butterflies. Visitors can enjoy walking around the extensive grounds and then enjoy delicious homemade cake and tea on one of the terraces. There will be a variety of entertainment for the whole family including birds of prey, owls, vintage cars, all day music and theatre, fun for the children plus lots lots more. This is a real celebration of Spring.
