This doesn't feel even faintly like a rental property. My family, girlfriend and I sometimes use it ourselves when other people are not doing so. It has the virtues and defects of a real, lived-in, place. It is full of our books, games, cooking equipment and supplies etc.

The cottage is situated in the middle of a 190-acre organic farm on the South Downs, which you are welcome to explore. It is close to Chichester Festival Theatre, Cowdray Park polo, Goodwood, Petworth Park, and HMS Victory.

The space

Billy’s has been recently renovated, but without spoiling it. It is a semi-detached cottage joined to another cottage available for rent. This is now a house more aimed at grown-ups than at families with small children. It has antique rugs, old wooden floors and pretty furniture.

The kitchen is furnished with old pine cupboards, shelves and tables (not a fitted unit in sight!) and an old fashioned sink with brass taps. There is however a modern 'fridge, freezer and cooker.

If you feel brave, there is an old wood-fired Rayburn cooker which can be lit - but it is more use in heating up the room, than at cooking anything! It is more like an open fireplace with a door.

The south-facing sitting room in Billy's has little leather chairs and some other antique furniture, a card table & some occasional tables.

The sitting room opens directly onto the garden (which is shared by both cottages), and has magnificent views to the Downs. The garden is large, bounded by old hedges , and is mainly laid down to grass. If you want to escape, there is the rest of the farm!

The bathroom (which is downstairs, and opens off the kitchen via a useful lobby for hanging coats and putting muddy boots in), contains basin, bath and W.C. It has a fan heater, but can be chilly in winter.

The stairs run up the middle of the houses (between the kitchen and sitting room) and are quite steep ; so please be careful.

The south bedroom in Billy's has a double bed, bedside tables, a large wardrobe, and a little dressing table. It has a dormer window, looking south at the Downs (you will probably see deer most mornings). In a cupboard, there is a basin & mirror and razor socket. There is a decorative fire place, which you can not use.

The north bedroom in has a huge (6ft wide) double bed. There is a basin & mirror and razor socket in a cupboard, a (decorative) fireplace, and an ancient leather trunk, which is used as a table..

Interaction with guests

I will sometimes be staying in the cottage next door however I work in London and more frequently it is my brother, who lives in the farm house just down the lane, who will conduct the hand over of keys. I will always be available by email or phone to help with any queries you may have though!
