About The Twitten

An ideal escape to the Sussex countryside for those seeking a relaxing break or romantic retreat. Rich in history, the former mill workers cottage has now been tastefully decorated creating a cosy and stylish self-catering home.

With a sitting/dining room and separate kitchen downstairs, and a bright bedroom and bathroom upstairs, The Twitten blends original features with bijou style to retain the charm of this 18th Century building.

The name 'Twitten' derives from the old Sussex word meaning a path between walls or hedges. As you walk through the arched passageway into this quiet haven, you will hear the bubbling millstream which fed the old mill just up the road. Surrounded by countryside, right on the edge of the South Downs National Park and with the South Downs Way only a mile away, there is good access for walks up onto the hills right on the doorstep.

With the centre of Steyning and it's convenient amenities a few steps away, The Twitten is a great base for walkers looking to stretch their legs!
