Lewes District Council granted planning permission for a replacement timber framed holiday cottage on the edge of Chailey Common in East Sussex, having overcome objection from the Parish Council.

Dilapidated barns

The new holiday cottage will replace these dilapidated barns

The new building will provide two-bedroom sleeping accommodation, plus a superb open-plan living space with vaulted ceiling, complete with log burning stove for cosy evenings, opening up year round rental potential – perfect with so many local events in autumn and winter.

Work is rapidly underway to clear the site and form the foundation slab before the weather deteriorates in the run up to Christmas, allowing off-site pre-fabrication of wall and roof panels ready for quick site installation early in the New Year, with the intention of opening for the 2014 season.
