The Old Stables Cottage is a luxury, single-storey property with vaulted ceilings, on our working family farm in the downland village of West Marden, Nr. Chichester, West Sussex.

In high summer guests staying at the cottage have the shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool, and a large lawned and walled-in garden, which is ideal for children.

Lovely walks or bike rides may be taken straight from the door. The village pub is only a 75 yard short stroll and a village shop with a tea room is within a mile. Our three cottages, The Old Stables, Keepers and Barley Cottage can accommodate 12 guests in total and therefore ideal for family gatherings, walking groups and wedding parties as the wonderful wedding venue, The Tithe Barn at Ditcham is just over a ten minute drive.

Further details indoors

The charming open-plan accommodation is very spacious and equipped to a very high standard. The kitchen has plenty of workspace, adequate cupboard storage and a generous size fridge/freezer. The property is very cosy and fully centrally heated. Each radiator is individually thermostatically controlled. The addition of a woodburner adds a lovely glow and comfort on those chillier evenings. An initial big basket of logs is provided and thereafter further baskets of logs can be requested and paid for, as and when required.

We have a list of kitchen products that you will find in the cottage and will very happily email this to you if you are coming to stay, to avoid duplicate packing!

Further details outdoors

The Old Stables has its own very large and private patio with garden furniture and a charcoal barbeque. It's mediterranean in style, with a long border of shrubs and pots and window boxes of colourful geraniums in the summer. A sheltered sun-trap and ideal for al fresco dining! You can walk straight from the door into some lovely countryside. There's a very good local village shop and tea room just a mile up the road (another very pleasant walk!) and our local pub, 75 yards down the road where good pub food is served. Just a short stroll!

Further details

The heated swimming pool is available for those residing at the cottage, and on our booking form, in high summer, from Monday to Saturday inclusive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The pool is in a sheltered walled-in garden and has pool loungers for relaxation.

The South East England region

The South East of England is in great demand and plentiful in experiences. Diverse landscapes from the rolling South Downs National Park to the stunning coastline with some charming towns and villages. The area is steeped in history and offers something for all ages.

Chichester

The Roman city of Chichester, just a 15 minute drive from West Marden, has a wonderful Norman cathedral and famous Tudor Market Cross. Great shopping, stylish restaurants, pubs and cafes, catering for most tastes.

The internationally acclaimed Chichester Festival theatre stages many different productions. There are galleries and museums and within a few miles, National Trust properties to visit. Fishbourne Roman Palace houses the largest collection of in-situ mosaic floors in Britain. Many of these were laid at the time of the construction of the Palace, around AD75-80.

Around Chichester are some picturesque coastal villages, such as Bosham and Emsworth and the Isle of Wight is just a short ferry trip from Portsmouth. West Marden is just a 20 minute drive from the Cross channel ferry terminal at Portsmouth. The cottage is located in a pretty downland village and benefits from a local pub which is just a short stroll from the property.
