The first building was recorded here at the Manor in 1066, however, there are historical references going back even earlier to King Edgar in 966.
We think the cottage location is fantastic, not only for us, but our guests too: so close to fabulous beaches, Chichester and the South Downs and yet a very rural and private setting. The local area is ancient with many areas of historical interest some going back as far as 3000-years to our early ancestors. The Roman city of Chichester is famous for the Chichester Festival Theatre, Pallant House Art Gallery and the Norman Cathedral with a free-standing Medieval tower. Kingley Vale, nestling in the South Downs National Park, has some of the oldest yew trees in Europe, some estimated to be 2000yrs old and on the top of Kingley Vale you will encounter stunning views sweeping across the English countryside and English Channel. Special Sites to visit: Fishbourne Roman Palace, the most important Roman Palace north of the Alps; Arundel Castle built by the Normans in the 11th century; Portsmouth and its selection of historic ships including Admiral Nelson's the Victory and Henry VIII's ship at the Mary Rose Museum; the Weald and Down Museum; and the stunning West Dean Gardens and Arboretum to mention a few.
If you have bikes, we recommend bringing them if you can. They are a wonderful way to explore the immediate area with extensive off road access without having to get into your car.
