Cosy and quaint self-catering bungalow in rural lane, Eastergate. Located 6 miles to beaches and South Downs National Park. Numerous open Houses and Gardens. It has the highest sunshine records for the mainland. We recommend walking round Amberley village, 8 miles, with amazing thatched houses and cottage gardens. Do visit the walled tea garden mid week.
Eastmere kitchen and living room are sunny and well equipped, and close to outdoor sitting area. Parking for 2 cars alongside cottage.

The space

In a quiet location, surrounded by fields and horses, between Chichester and Arundel, and 6 miles from the South Coast beaches, Eastmere is a self-contained timber bungalow.
There is secure off-road parking for two cars. The Cottage is situated in a country lane that runs between Eastergate and Walberton. It is near the Downs - between Arundel and Chichester, 6 miles north of Bognor and 22 miles from Brighton to the east and Portsmouth to the west.

Guest access

Eastmere is well decorated, furnished and fully equipped. The light and airy living room has two recliner chairs with stools, and two high-back comfortable Parker-Knoll arm chairs , dining table and 4 wheel-back chairs, flat screen TV and DVD Player, free WIFI.
In the kitchen we provide a wide range of utensils, cupboards and work surfaces, stainless steel sink, a large fridge/freezer, microwave, new electric cooker, Zanussi washing machine and access to drying facilities.
The bathroom has a bath with flexible shower head over, hand basin and WC. The hot water cylinder cupboard contains a vacuum cleaner, iron and board - not that many guests appear to use the latter!
One double bedroom has a comfortable double bed and a spacious antique wardrobe. Then there is one twin bedroom with two comfortable 3ft wide beds, double wardrobe and deep chest of drawers. Bed linen, pillows, duvets and towels are provided. Heating is via a central heating boiler with thermostatically controlled radiators; cooling fans are also available.
We accept children but there is insufficient space in bedrooms for a floor travel cot.
Electricity is included in the price quoted. The cottage is fully insulated and has double-glazed windows.
There is direct access to a sitting area with patio furniture

Interaction with guests

We are happy to assist with any questions and suggestions for visiting the local area. When in the garden we, Jean and Bernard, are happy to put down a wheelbarrow of weeds and have a chat - as we live just to the East of the Cottage.
Neighbours, some distance to the West, are about 10 horses in well-tended livery stables. Stable staff may be seen working and riding.

Other things to note

The cottage is suitable for less able or elderly people who can manage a 3 inch (8cm) step and standard width doors within the cottage. Outside the ground is level.
We welcome walkers and cyclists - their bicycles can be stored in a lockable outbuilding. We often loan ordnance survey maps of the South Downs. Some visitors take their car to one of the strategic car parks high up on the South Downs and walk short sections of the South Downs Way. We are approximately a mile from the South Downs National Park.
In June 2015 Visit England Quality in Tourism Assessor arrived unannounced.
His report includes: "Eastmere has retained the Three Star Self Catering rating with the overall percentage safely placed for the Three Star grade. All guests receive a personal welcome with a tour of the cottage....."
Our 3* grading was increased by 5 points.

Wifi was intermittent on 1st evening but was corrected by next morning with full reliable signal. The shower area is clean but is situated beside the WC! Extractor fan works with light switch or open window.

We received a very warm welcome by the host and were given a guided tour of the property and were explained how things work, ie hot water, kitchen utensils etc. There was a great booklet with all relevant information regarding the surrounding area, places to visit, shop and eat. The hosts were lovely. The property was lovely, with all the amenities that one needs. It was secure and loved the fact that we could park the car right outside, enjoyed the seating area outside and the beds were comfortable. We felt it was a home away from home.

Response from Bernard:
Thank you for your kindly thoughts on your 6 days in our Cottage. The changeover, ready for our visitors to the Goodwood Revival Festival from Arizona, went smoothly as you had left the property in such good order. As we were ready in good time, we invited them for tea in the garden and decide on an evening meal at Binsted village restaurant-pub.

I am a retired industrial chemist. Spend my life doing DIY on our property! I also endeavour to lose weight - without success.
My wife Jean organises the self-catering cottage and tends the hanging baskets and pots of flowers. We both enjoy gardening including vegetable growing.
We have spent ten summers in Australia - where our daughter lives in the Barossa (wine) Valley. Now we have decided to remain in UK as the journey is becoming uncomfortable. But we miss the blue skies and excellent wine. We both enjoy meeting people from all over the world and have recently retired from B & B in our house. We take part in activities at Walberton Anglican parish church and village events.
