    We loved staying at Serendipity. The cottage had a good feel to it - with comfortable furniture and a very cosy living area. The rooms were a good size and the heating and log burner all worked perfectly. Beds were comfortable - we took our own pillows as a previous reviewer had said the pillows were uncomfortable but we did not need to use them as the pillows were wonderful. The next door neighbour was very helpful and friendly. The location is superb - especially if you enjoy walking. The local pub is extremely welcoming - the food is truly excellent and they are also dog friendly. The only downside we could come up with was the parking situation - although the owner says to park against the wall outside the property, all the neighbours consider the bit outside of their house as their own space, so were not happy when we parked there. However, there is plenty of parking around the corner on the village square so it doesn't really present a problem, but it makes for better neighbourly relations if it is clear from the start that there really is no parking outside the cottage.

    Great cottage, excellent to stay, so beautiful inside! We were there with 3 cars and to park them, we had a problem. There is nearly no parkingspace for "normal" or "big" cars near the house. But that's the only problem we had. Great beds, great sofa's, ... top!!!

    Just returned from a very enjoyable week at Serendipity with family and dog. Lovely cottage in peaceful village, lots of good walks in beautiful scenery nearby. Also took the short drive down to the coast to dog friendly beach, watched a game of polo at Cowdray park and took the Watercress Line steam train. All dog friendly, as are many local pubs and restaurants. My only suggestions for improving the cottage would be to get some thinner summer duvets and invest in some new pillows ... but these all minor points weighed up against all the positives. Would definitely recommend.

    A very clean, comfortable cottage in a very peaceful village setting. The cottage is very well furnished a modern well equiped kitchen and very comfortable lounge / diner with big comfy sofas and a nice big dining table and patio doors onto a lovely garden. The bedrooms are bright and clean with very comfortable beds. There is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer should you need it and a downstairs loo. The lane outside the cottage is very narrow where you can park but I parked a very short distance away on the edge of the green. The village is very quiet the green is just behind the cottage with a small children's play area. There are plenty of public footpaths around with some very pretty walks. There is a cricket pitch with pavilion and a bowling club. Stedham polo ground is only a stones throw away.

    The house was well located and in perfect order.The garden was well maintained as well and information about the local area were available. The only thing that could be improved is the equipment in the kitchen. More pans, saucepans, cooking dishes would be useful. All in all we had a lovely time and will happily come back.

    This comfortable cottage was well equiped in a peaceful and beautiful location. It was ideal for all our family. My husband enjoys parking in difficult narrow places but there is plenty of space to park at the Green as prefered by a nephew coming to dinner one evening.
