The Stables

This is the larger of our two units and was recently converted from an old brick building which was used as stables. The ground floor is open plan with a generous seating area and fully equipped kitchen. The shower room on the ground floor also has a WC. Towels are provided. The seating area has a double sofa (can be used as a sofa bed) and armchair. There is also a small bespoke dining table with two Windsor chairs.

Upstairs, on a mezzanine floor, is the bedroom with a 5 ft. double bed, plenty of storage, and a WC and basin. The bedroom has wonderful views over the farm to the South Downs and this window also provides plenty of daylight to the sitting area downstairs. Egyptian cotton bedding is provided.

Some store cupboard basics are provided and fresh milk, bread, butter and fruit will be put in on the day of your arrival.

For your entertainment  there is a 40″ internet-connected TV and free wi-fi, plus a selection of books.

The cost of renting the Stable is as follows:

2 or more nights         £85 per night

5 or more nights         £75 per night

Chair Making Courses

No previous experience is necessary to successfully complete a Windsor chair making course and yet experienced woodworkers will still be fully challenged. Individual guidance and assistance will be provided as appropriate, and every effort will be made to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable course.

Chair Making Book

Written by James Mursell, this book was the first new book about the making and design of Windsor chairs for over 10 years. It was written with a broad readership in mind and is aimed at existing Windsor chair makers and also at those who are contemplating making their first chair.

Tool Testimonials

“This tool is phenomenal. I bought two, one for myself and another for my Windsor chairmaker instructor. Compared to the other travishers I have used, yours is very good to work with and everyone who has tried it loves it. I just ordered a second one and your two spokeshaves which I trust will be as enjoyable to use. Thanks again for making such great tools.” LG (USA) 2015
