The neighbourhood

The first building was recorded here at the Manor in 1066, however, there are historical references going back even earlier to King Edgar in 966.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.

Getting around

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.

Other things to note

The cottage has a sofa bed which can be set up in either the sitting room or very large 2nd bedroom. The sofa bed can be a double or 2-single futons.

Gail's place was perfect. In a beautiful idyllic spot. Surrounded by beautiful gardens very relaxing and the two trampolines kept our children happy for hours. The beds were super comfy and the house was very clean and wonderfully eclectic and stylish. Gail was very friendly and helpful, we will definitely come again.

Gail's lovely country-home and amazing grounds is unparalleled! The home has lovely furnishings, comfortable beds and linens and light streams into the house. The gardens are beyond beautiful! We enjoyed nearby Chichester (wonderful playground) and Arundel Castle for the historic town / castle. Brighton also made a great day trip. Thank you for a memorable weekend!

Great if you fancy a walk down the canal - as tow path right outside the house. Close to Wittering beaches and Chichester town - so best of all worlds. You do need a car if you want to get around outside of local walking or cycling. Lovely host, and lovely property.

The cottage is absolutely beautiful! Even better than described. Very clean and everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is set behind the owners house and is very private and quiet. Great communication from the owner Gail who is so lovely and friendly. We arrived late and the cottage was well lit and heated ready for us. The plus points of this gorgeous place is that it is very spacious yet still has a cosy homely feeling. We loved it and will definitely return. We recommend the Blacksmiths pub 2 minutes away for a lovely meal.

We stayed at this cozy cottage during Christmas and we all had blessed time. The cottage is very specious with a very well equipped kitchen and online pictures don't do justice to this place, it's truly magical house. Highly recommended!

Really spacious cottage which was ideal for family nights in and exploring Sussex and the new forest from. Nice and secluded, and although we didn't get to enjoy it, looked awesome for summer barbecues. Highly recommended.
