Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Completely refurbished to a high standard, this listed, Georgian flint cottage is situated to the south side of a large 18th century country house, 2 miles from the centre of the walled cathedral city of Chichester and close to the little village of East Lavant with its Saxon church. There are unimpaired rural views from all the cottage bedrooms across the Lavant Valley up to the Goodwood race course on the South Downs and, for keen walkers and cyclists, the cottage is situated on a footpath, which gives access to a whole network of bridlepaths. For those attending the Goodwood Vintage Racing Revival, the circuit is only a 20 minute walk.
Approached by a long private drive, South Cottage has its own parking area and entrance and offers accommodation of a high standard. It is furnished and equipped very much as a home and a complimentary bottle of champagne awaits visitors' arrival.

Chichester itself is steeped in history going back to Roman times, while the main parts of the cathedral are some 900 years old. Chichester also has a flourishing theatre and a summer festival. Historic houses and museums in the area include Goodwood, Uppark, Petworth, Fishbourne Roman Palace, as well as H.M.S. Victory and the Mary Rose in Portsmouth. There is sailing at Itchenor and Bosham, horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell and easy access to the south coast beaches at East and West Wittering and Bognor Regis. For vintage car enthusiasts, there are two major events of the classic car calendar, the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival meeting.
