    Inadequate clothes hanging but otherwise well equipped. Very nice barn conversion but located 1.5 miles down a narrow lane.

    Absolutely loved the fact that phone and internet services were poor. A very peaceful and restful week. The owners were very friendly and helpful, would definitely return.

    Calmness, tranquility, dark skies and wildlife, this issue wonderful location and thank goodness for no phone signal, although WiFi was useful and worked perfectly well. The setting is lovely and the barn is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We turned the sofa round to permanently watch the woodpeckers and other wildlife! Only things we didn't like were the very uncomfortable dining chairs and would have preferred both bathrooms to have showers rather than a roll top bath, but appreciate that's very subjective. Beautiful part of the world, hope to go back !

    Very comfortable and well equipped. Remote position meant it was peaceful and relaxing with lots of wildlife. Lots of amenities available within 1/2 hour drive which we expected

    We had a really relaxing holiday . The cottage was in a very quiet area but it took us no time at all to get out and about to other places . Our only disappointment was that there was no internet and there hadn't been any since 10th of January apparently . We feel we should have been informed of this as my husband did need to do some work whilst he was there . There was also no phone signal which is nobody's fault but without either we were struggling at times !!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your response. The Old Carthouse finally went live with the Internet in the middle of April, so it would seem you just missed it, sorry. It is not a brilliant signal, but we are thankful for anything at all as they have been trying since January!!

    I spent four weeks in the Old Carthouse so probably am more qualified than most shorter stay clients to give an assessment. It became my home for those four weeks and I found it a very comfortable house with all the amenities I needed not too far away. I loved the village of Steyning. Everyone in the many delightful shops was so friendly and dog tolerant which is important My dog Bella and I had many walks directly from the house in lovely woodlands. I was pleased to be able to let her off the leash which was not possible at my next letting. Mr & Mrs Hammond were very helpful and their dogs were great playmates for Bella. All in all a very pleasant stay.
