Couples will enjoy a break away at this property, which is also within easy reach of Brighton and the coast.

Cart House (ref 30636) is a beautifully presented, single-storey barn conversion dating back to the 16th century, has stunning beams throughout, and makes an ideal retreat for couples. It is adjacent to stunning manicured grounds with the tranquil lake, pergoda and seating areas. Together with two other cottages, it is peacefully located within the grounds of a stud farm where the main barn dates back to 1578, and is one of the oldest barns in Sussex. They are surrounded by 130 acres of pasture and ancient oak forests on the border of Surrey and Sussex with public footpaths from the door.
Historic Petworth House and Gardens is about a 10-minute drive, with its plentiful antique shops, beautiful stately home and Capability gardens, and where live music concerts and outdoor theatre can be enjoyed during the summer months. The small charming town of Midhurst, famous for polo at Cowdray Park is also a short drive, as are Billingshurst, Haslemere, Gatwick and Guildford. Goodwood, with its motor and horse racing, Fontwell races, Leonardslee, West Dean Gardens, Parham House, Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, and the South Downs are all within easy driving distance. Visit Chichester, with its ornate cathedral, tea rooms, extensive shopping, festival theatre and harbour tours, or alternatively Arundel, which also has a cathedral, famous castle and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The Witterings and other beaches are half an hour’s drive, and numerous golf courses, horse riding and fishing are also close by. London and Brighton can also be easily reached for great days out. Beach 25 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile. Property refs 30636, 31309 and UKC1266 can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guests.

    Very noisy cottage when wind blows. Bathroom freezing. Parking hit and miss.

    Lovely little place would defiantly come back again but in the summer, as there is very little heating for winter breaks.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We will look forward to seeing you in the summer - Happy New Year.

    Place has potential but: No greeting from owner. Cottage needs cleaning, it was not mopped and cupboards were dusty. No access to the gardens. No access to washing machine.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; When you phoned to find about the key for the cottage I did explain I might be out collecting grandchildren and I would come and say hello later. When I did get back all the curtains where shut and I did not want to disturb you. The gardens are always available to walk in and the gate code is on the literature next to the TV and the instructions for the shared washing machine access too. I am so sorry you missed it. The wooden floor was cleaned, perhaps when I was putting milk in the fridge and the homemade cakes I left a mark on the floor. I do apologise but I try very hard to make the place welcoming for my guests as I really care that they enjoy their stay at Rumbolds.

    We had a lovely time but the two elements of this property that really let it down are the views and the cleanliness. The farm is in an absolutely gorgeous location, but the actual property does nothing to exploit this. It has a lovely triple aspect of a road, some gravel and a bush. Bit of a shame. The cleanliness was disappointing. It was good on the surface but the property is in desperate need of a deep clean. There were cobwebs everywhere and all the dust really aggravated my partners asthma. Worst of all, the place was covered in dead flies. Dead flies all over the bed, on the window sills, all over the floor - it was really gross. The bath mats were not fresh and had clearly just been flipped over. Unfortunately the skylight window and blind had both been left open and we could only reach by climbing on the furniture with a stick. Despite what the info and the signs say, the only pub within walking distance does NOT do food.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am very sad to hear this review and your experience staying in the Cart House.I can only apologise and wish you had told me on your arrival and we would have corrected it immediately . We had a temporary cleaner during the time you were staying and regular girl was on holiday. The flies are always a problem on farms when the weather becomes cold they go into building that are warm if windows are left open and then die . They must have got in through the open sky window which was open after it was clean Looking back in my notes I see the cleaner came to do the cottage in on Wednesday and you arrived Friday I would have checked Wednesday and missed the open window therefore letting the flies in. Our village pub is only open for food on Friday night but we have lovely pubs in Dunsfold and Kirdford and Chiddingfold who serve food every night .
