Live the country life in this charming tile-hung cottage. The views from the windows overlook downland and woodland. From the gate, walk straight onto a myriad of footpaths leading in various directions – all with beautiful vistas. The area abounds with wildlife, including deer, badgers, buzzards and red kites. There are many varieties of owls in the area which are a delight to listen to in the early evening. Although the surroundings are the countryside at its best, there are two fully stocked and excellent village stores within a short drive, plus easy access to the main cities of Chichester and Portsmouth and all the attractions they offer.

No attention to detail has been overlooked, from the pretty patchwork quilts in the bedrooms, to the authentic Indian carpets on the floors and the sleek lines of the bathroom with its power shower.More

We were really impressed by the location of Gardener's Cottage. It was really easy to find using the instructions from Cathy and Ranjit. As noted by the owners, this is a mobile blind spot, so there is no way to contact anyone (or be contacted)...More

It is a lovely cottage, beautiful location, immaculately presented, spotless, fully equipped, and the hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful. Cottage is near the beach and other attractions, I would highly recommend this cottage!

Lovely cottage to explore the local area. Good food from the pub down the road and Tea on the Green at Rowland's Castle. About 20 minutes to get to Chichester and some very interesting old churches nearby - especially St Michael at Up Marden.

Additional amenities & feature info
The light oak kitchen houses all the modern conveniences you would expect, enabling you to knock up a quick snack to eat al fresco, or a full meal for serious dining if preferred. Alternatively, the village pub is within easy walking distance (three minutes) and serves excellent food in the bar or restaurant. The light and airy lounge has double aspect windows and a characterful solid fuel stove that provides a traditional focal point and extra heating if required. The antique pine dresser holds a good supply of books, magazines, DVD's and tourist information. The lounge lights have been sourced from a Welsh mining lamp company with a central light and one over the dining table. The washing machine is in a separate utility room off the rear lobby, with space for outside gear. Both bedrooms have bedside cupboards and Persian rugs beside the beds, whilst the tiled bathroom floor is supplemented by a deep pile bathmat.
