Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Flintstone Cottages are a collection of 5 newly converted light, airy and modern self-contained holiday let apartments based only 2 miles from Chichester and 5 miles from Goodwood House. These apartments have been converted to a very high standard from the out buildings of the Victorian Flint knapped Sussex Farmhouse.
The 5 apartments combined offer beds to sleep a total of 22 people (11 couples)
In addition, each unit provides a King-size sofa bed so naturally this can be ideal for an additional couple or children and therefore utilising these, sleeping accommodation could be provided for a maximum of 32 guests.
Flintstone cottages would be ideal location for a large family group wishing to meet up (whilst still retaining an element of independence) or alternatively, booked as a convenient rural base for an individual or couple to have a quiet get away.
Open Barn style parking is available adjacent to the apartments and the apartments are very secure and private being half a mile down a remote farm track towards the Railway; yet very close to Chichester and the surrounding amenities and attractions.
All our units have “Free Sat” television, DVD player and free Wifi

The South East England region
Chichester is a beautiful cathedral city in West Sussex, within the historic County of Sussex, South-East England. It has a long history as a settlement; its Roman past and its subsequent importance in Anglo-Saxon times are only its beginnings. It is the seat of a bishopric, with a 12th-century cathedral, and is home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in Great Britain.
Chichester today is a local government stronghold, with three levels of government being administered there. It is the centre for culture in the region, with a Festival theatre and two art galleries. Nearby Chichester Harbour, together with the South Downs and the city walls, provide wonderful opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
Below are just a few of the many attractions the area has to offer.

What can we say, Goodwood has to be one of the most spectacular, exciting and pro-active Country Estates in the UK.

"Lovely modern conversion with thoughtful touches. Would recommend."
I can't fault this place. A modern (new) conversion decorated to a very high spec with lots of nice touches. The Barn shares the estate with several other holiday-lets as well as the owner's property, but has been laid out in such a way that you have privacy despite being in a communal arrangement. The owners are very friendly and helpful and have given a lot of consideration into ensuring you have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. I thought the addition of fans in the bedrooms was a really nice touch during hot weather and the Wi-Fi and a smart internet-TV ensured the kids were happy!
One thing to point out is that there is a train-line running past the rear of the property, however these are infrequent (as far as I noticed) and do not disturb the tranquillity of the place.
You will really need a car if staying here as the location is fairly remote, however there's plenty to offer within a 20minute radius by car (West Wittering beach, Arundel, Chichester & marina, Tangmere museum to name a few).
