The cottage was spacious and comfortable. Wonderful walks with bridleway starting just outside the cottage. Our dog enjoyed exploring new footpaths as did we. Excellent village shop and cafe just down the lane. We visited Uppark House, South Harting Down, West Dean Gardens, Kingley Vale Nature reserve and took the dog down to Littlehampton West Beach (where dogs are allowed) at low tide - his first trip to the seaside. The Octagon Walks book can be obtained from the village shop and contains 8 local walks - we completed 2 of them. Beware a lot of the hills are quite steep. When we arrived the heating was not on (as the heat wave had just ended), we phoned Gerard and he came within 20 minutes to help us get the log fire started and turn on the storage heaters. Wifi in the house great but little or not mobile signal when out walking in the hills!
Beautiful little cottage. Sadly needing TLC. The area is wonderful for walking. Compton villages all friendly. The cottage has a lot of water damage and needs a good clean. We aired the cottage and cleaned before we were able to settle in. The guest loo was out of bounds for my family, see pictures of water damage and mold on the hand towel.
As a 2 dog owner, its difficult to find anywhere that makes you welcome, Pepperpot Cottage owner Gerald C loves them. This is an ideal location for fantastic walks, including one right from the front door. Open fire, very warm and cosy, large rooms but maintains a cottage feel, well equipped, very hot water, wifi, even the neighbours are welcoming. We love it.
If you dont like the countryside, dont appreciate what is available in this country, dont enjoy the peace and quiet, then dont come.
This is perfection to us.
Negative!!!! "its a long drive for a bottle of wine on a Sunday Night!!"
Will definitely come back,
