About The Jam Shed

The Jam Shed is a barn style annexe that has been lovingly designed with contemporary colours and soft furnishings. Light and airy inside, there are views onto a delightful patio and lawn with fields beyond. Good quality wooden furniture makes for a lovely outside eating area which is bordered with lavender bushes and seasonal flowers.

A perfect bolthole for cosy nights in or a summer retreat, the Jam shed offers open plan living with a well equipped kitchen, comfy sofas and TV. Stairs lead to a loft bedroom with a kingsize bed and views across the garden to the pond.

The Jam Shed is located on the outskirts of Plumpton Village within walking distance of Plumpton train station with direct line via Gatwick to London Victoria, a racecourse and an excellent village shop selling fresh bread and croissants, local produce and quality meals to take back to the Jam Shed if you don't fancy cooking. Alternatively, why not walk across the fields to The Jolly Sportsman pub, a former Victorian alehouse now well known for its food.
