Barley Cottage's patio area is a real sun-trap in the afternoon in the summer. Ideal for barbecues! There is also a large lawned and gated garden for guests use which is great for the children to run around in too. For those keen on walking, this is a good area and plenty of great circular walks which could incorporate a country pub or tea-room for refreshments!
The pool is only for the use of guests residing at the cottage and on our booking form. We regret that visitors are not permitted to use the pool or pool garden at any time. In high summer, the pool times are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
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.
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.
