The space

A basic but comfortable single room. No mod cons, just home comforts.

This is the smaller cosier bedroom of the 2 that I offer.

Shared bathroom and kitchen for light meals.

Garden & courtyard with outside seating.

We have 3 dogs that will make you welcome.....and share their hair with you! There are often canine guests here too.

Free wireless.

Your stay can be flexible:
Room only - £22 per night.
Room & cooked breakfast £32 per night
Evening meal - I am happy to rustle up supper if given notice - £15

Guest access

Shared bathroom - leave clean after use ready for the next person.
Limited use of the kitchen - prep of cold food, microwave for heating food, & a kettle. Please note - food is not permitted in the bedroom & it is expected that you clean the kitchen areas that you have used ready for me or the next person to use.
(Breakfast is available at an additional charge - please indicate this on your booking).
Use of the garden or courtyard for al fresco eating or drinking.

Interaction with guests

You can have as much or as little communication or interaction as you like.
Some guests want to share conversation, experiences, wine, beer, whilst others are more private and prefer the tranquillity of their room.
If you prepare or have meals here, I ask that you eat downstairs and not in your room.

The neighbourhood

Yapton is ideally located for Goodwood events - 15 mins drive.

The lovely medieval city of Arundel is a 6 min drive or train journey away, with a great castle to explore as well as plenty of good cafes and restaurants.

We are 5 mins drive from Climping beach and 10 mins from the South Downs......plenty of beautiful walks.

Local footpaths that you can use for walking or running are close by.

There is a Co-op convenience store in the village centre where you can buy all basic food provisions.

Getting around

If exploration by bicycle does not appeal to you, then.....

Travel to London from Barnham station (5 mins drive, 10mins cycle, 25 mins walk) 1hr 20mins direct line to Victoria. 6 mins to Chichester or Arundel. 45 mins to Brighton. Train travel is probably the better option for exploring, travelling to work or study.

A local bus runs to Littlehampton, Bognor Regis & Brighton.

Other things to note

Please note - breakfasts & a shuttle service to & from the Festival of Speed or the Revival are charged in addition to the room price. The payment will be collected at the end of your stay.

House Rules
