Lavender Cottage is an attractive detached village home of ancient origin with later additions. The elevations are principally brick with some flint work to the rear and leaded light windows under a pitched and tiled roof. The original heavy timbering is displayed internally and the oak plank flooring, ledge and brace doors and fine Inglenook fireplace create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A charming porch with stone bench seating opens to the delightful dining hall which enjoys a double aspect with a bow window to the west. A door to the side of the deep brick fireplace leads to the cosy inner sitting room which is the heart of the house with an impressive Inglenook fireplace, exposed timbering and panelled wainscoting. The kitchen/breakfast room has a more generous ceiling height than the original cottage, with exposed ceiling joists, modern units and gas-fired Aga. Beyond is a utility area and bedroom with adjoining cloaks/shower room, and there is a further ground floor bedroom or study overlooking the street. The first floor is approached by a delightful hand-painted timber staircase and there are two double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom fitted in a classic French theme with a roll-top bath on claw feet, furniture unit with marble surface and inset basin, w.c. and shower cubicle. A five-bar gate gives access to a spacious parking area to the rear of the property with attractive flower borders, and a pedestrian gate leads to a secluded and enclosed garden laid to lawn. Timber studio/garden room. There is gas fired central heating to radiators.

Bramber is well known for its ruined Norman Castle and spectacular earthworks. It is a small village built upon a natural causeway which runs from the Castle to the river. Local shops are just across the River Adur, and Steyning with good shops and schools is about a mile away. A by-pass has largely removed through-traffic and Lavender Cottage is in the Conservation Area.

The village lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park about five miles from the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea (main line railway station to London Victoria) and eight miles from Worthing. Brighton is about 11 miles and Horsham 14, and Gatwick Airport can normally be reached in about 40 minutes by car
