Stylish bed and breakfast accommodation in a sympathetically refurbished old village school. We invite you to stay in one of our luxurious ground floor bedroom, with a double bed and en suite shower room. We want you to enjoy a memorable stay, and visit us again.

Just 1.5 miles from the centre of Chichester, The Old School is ideally located for attending events at Goodwood, and we are just a short car journey from Fontwell Park Racecourse and Arundel with its lovely shops and restaurants.

The space
Built in 1839 under the patronage of the fifth Duke of Richmond, the Old School is a well known and cherished local landmark. The school’s foundation was connected with a concern for social improvement at the time. The building’s academic life came to an end in 1967, and it has since been a residential property. The Old School retains many of its original features, and in recent times has been tastefully and sympathetically refurbished. A more detailed history is available in our welcome literature.

Guest access
Breakfast is included in the price, served in the conservatory looking out onto our enchanting garden. Our menu includes freshly cooked hot breakfasts, with vegetarian options, fruit salad or compote with yogurt, porridge, and we have a delicious vegan menu. We are happy to cater for people with special dietary requirements, please discuss with us in advance so that we can ensure we have appropriate ingredients in stock. Please note, all the major allergens are present in our kitchen.

Our guests are welcome to make use of the garden where there are pleasant places to sit and relax, or you may want to play a game of croquet on the lawn. You will also have use of the comfortable and welcoming sitting room, with a roaring log fire in the winter. Free wifi is available throughout most of the house.

Free off-road and on-street parking are available. Access to The Old School B&B is via the conservatory at the rear of the building, which can be seen from the off-road parking area. Unfortunately we are not able to offer guest access to the kitchen. A generous hospitality tray can be found in your room, with fresh milk and water in a nearby silent bedroom fridge. We are more than happy to make a tray of tea for you to drink in the communal guest areas or garden.

Other things to note
Please note we have a large deep pond in the garden, and a number of small steps on the path and patio.

At The Old School the comfort and safety of our guests is always paramount. We have taken the following actions in response to the COVID-19 crisis:

We have enhanced our already stringent cleaning regime following the most up to date industry guidelines for cleaning and sanitising guest bedrooms and communal areas. For example, this includes wearing protective gear, using the right disinfectant products, and providing our guests with sanitising amenities such as hand gel.

We are carefully managing occupancy to enable social distancing. All guests are asked to observe social distancing requirements. We have opened up an additional dining area and offer different sittings so that guests from each room can breakfast separately. You can also breakfast alfresco in a number of different areas in our enchanting garden, weather permitting!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or if you have suggestions about how we can give you further peace of mind.
