This detached thatched cottage is situated in the Upper Beeding (Hyde Street) Conservation Area; part of The South Downs National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its origins date back to the 17th Century, when the original 2 rooms were used as clerical cells used by monks from the nearby Tower Convent. The building was subsequently extended and converted to form the 2 storey dwelling house, with the more recent rear addition constructed about 25 years ago in matching materials. The gardens extend to the side and rear of the building, with 2 Historic yew trees that are Listed in the Doomsday book.
