Hob Cottage is a grade II listed cottage, believed to have been built in the 16th century in a conservation area. The property boasts a number of original features including an Inglenook fireplace and exposed beams, whilst the dressing room/occasional bedroom two could be separated if desired.


The picturesque village of Ditchling nestling just under the foot of Ditchling Beacon, the highest point on the South Downs, boasts a wealth of period and historic buildings and was once a staging post on the route between London and Brighton. The village provides a variety of amenities including some shops, a sub post office, museum, junior school, cafes and a variety of public houses/restaurants.On the northern outskirts of the village and in keeping with the heritage of the area, there is a small, modern industrial centre where various arts and craft skills are still practised, commissioned and retailed to the general public. Hassocks main line railway station, which provides regular services to London and the South coast (subject to network timetables) is approximately one and three quarter miles distant and the village itself, where more extensive facilities can be found, is within one and a half miles.
