The Elgar Studio is the woodland hideaway in which Sir Edward Elgar composed his last four great works, including The Cello Concerto, while living in West Sussex between 1917 and 1921.
This is not a modern building - it is remote and a step back in time - and so we would advise that it is not suitable for very elderly guests and young children under the age of six.
The magnificent central Studio space has a wood burning stove, and the kitchen is equipped with an Aga.
The Studio will sleep up to eight people in four bedrooms although it is best suited for a maximum of six adults and maybe two children. Three of the bedrooms have double beds (the third double bedroom is a compact room with a mattress on the floor) and the fourth bedroom has two single beds.
There is a bathroom with separate shower cubicle attached to the main bedroom suite. The second bathroom has a bath rather than a shower.
Please note that this is a rural property which is over a century old and is therefore rustic in character. Be prepared in the winter months therefore, because although there is an Aga, a woodburning stove and storage heating, it can get cold.
The wooded gardens slope away steeply from the property offering three decked areas, a separate summerhouse and barbecue area, and the opportunity to explore wooded paths within the grounds. The woods are famous for wild mushrooms, and in the autumn offer a spectacular display of colour. Guests must accept this is a woodland garden and walkways can be slippery.
