Description

Play croquet on the private lawn - families or groups of friends will be impressed by this 18th-century former barn.

Less than an hour from London by train or car, in the South Downs National Park, this detached 18th-century former barn is set in the owner’s grounds, in the heart of this quintessentially English village with pub, green and cricket pitch. An ideal weekend get-away for families or groups of friends, it has a one-acre private garden with croquet lawn, mature specimen plants including a 300-year old cedar tree and an outside terrace with table and chairs for 10 - an ideal spot to enjoy al-fresco dining - as well as a detached games room with pool table, table tennis and table football. Inside, along with wonderful original features including exposed stone walls, flagstone and brick floors and beams, there is a wood-burning stove, an Aga and an oak dining table, whilst the bedrooms have Victorian bedsteads and deep mattresses. The 16th-century Red Lion pub, 400 yards away on the village green, is the starting point for numerous walks, cycle, bridle trails and a launch site for hot-air balloon flights. Black Down, the highest point in the National Park, with its pine and heather covered slopes is immediately accessible on foot. Within a 15-minute drive is Petworth with its antique shops, beautiful stately home, Capability Brown gardens and open-air concerts, and charming Midhurst, famous for polo at Cowdray Park. Goodwood is 20 minutes away with its motor and horse racing, as well as numerous other National Trust houses and gardens. Chichester and West Wittering with its award-winning sandy beach are half an hour away. Shops 600 yards, pub 400 yards.

    The cottage was wonderful. Very clear instructions on how to get there and a property full of character. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room meant it was very sociable and whoever was cooking could still be involved with everyone. The kitchen was very well equipped and the aga nice and hot. They even provided a basket of wood to get the fire going on the first night. It was furnished beautifully and really felt like home. The pub was less than a 5min walk away which had great food and there were also plenty of walks. It was the perfect house for a weekend getaway with friends and I would recommend it to friends and family. Thanks for a great stay Helen.

    We spent a Friday to Monday celebrating a family birthday with 10 of us staying and others coming in for the Saturday evening. The place had all the facilities we needed and it was warm and cosy, despite being January. It had a great atmosphere, slightly quirky in it's layout but that added to it's charm for all of us, including 3 young children. We were newby's to cooking with an Aga but a short brief from Helen got us underway.

    Absolutely beautiful cottage. Very luxurious, with everything thought of and very friendly and welcoming but unobtrusive owners. It really is beautifully decorated and manages to be both cosy and spacious at the same time. We were very lucky with the weather and made the most of the wonderful garden with it's amazing swing from a huge Cyprus tree. A real family highlight from this summer for both kids and adults. Fantastic pubs nearby too. Many thanks

    This property was very disappointing. It was smaller than we expected. There was not adequate kitchen equipment, for example it is not acceptable to have a two slice toaster and one saucepan when the property is supposedly suitable for 10 people. The garden area is overlooked by the house but the garden furniture is of an acceptable standard. Although the games room is a fun addition to the property we would not consider booking again and would not recommend it to others.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; The cottage comprises 2,720 square foot over two floors. The separate games room (one floor) measures a further 504 square foot. The electric 2-slice toaster is in addition to the Aga toaster which toasts 4 slices. There are 2 non-stick single-handed saucepans‎ (18in & 20in), as well as 3 stainless steel double-handed saucepans (22in, 25in & 27in) provided for large-scale cooking where smaller saucepans might not suffice. It is difficult to comment with completeness yet brevity on the remainder of the kitchen equipment, however, there are 4 non-stick frying pans, 6 baking trays, a tier of cake tins, several casserole and serving dishes (glass and ceramic), as well as assorted measuring jugs (glass and plastic) and tupperware containers. The fridge is 6ft x 3ft American-style double-door. The Aga is 2-oven. There is a combination oven in addition, featuring grill, convection and microwave cooking. In anticipation of groups of 10 (and more for parties), there are 15+ of each of the following: champagne flutes, white wine, red wine, water and pint glasses, tea mugs and coffee cups with saucers, large plates, small plates, bowls, and cutlery. The garden area is for the sole and private use of guests. It comprises a sitting/dining terrace immediately outside the Cottage entirely screened by mature trees, a 1-acre landscaped garden partly adjoining the owner's house, and a further secluded 6 acres comprising small woodland, meadow and paddock. The access drive and car parking area is shared with the owner's house.

    Great venue for our special family gathering. Wonderful to find flowers and chocolates for us on arrival!
