Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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. Inside this 4 star cottage, oak beams offset the recently refurbished interior of this well-equipped, attractive accommodation. 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.

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.
