Pets: We provide food & water bowls plus a welcome treat.... we do ask for your dogs to keep to cottage rules. No dogs on furniture or upstairs, or to be left alone in the cottage....thank you.

The RSPB now have a marquee set up at the Cathedral in the garden of the Cloisters Cafe with telescopes and binoculars showing the birds perching on the Cathedral as well as a web cam streaming live footage that they show in the marquee. Its free to come along and you can follow the birds as their four eggs hatch, watch the parents feeding the young and the young learning how to fly. AS SHOWN ON BBC SPRING WATCH AND THE ONE SHOW.


The village of Nutbourne is mentioned in the Domesday Book as 'knutu burna' meaning 'nuts over a stream'. Not many place names that we use today appear in the Domesday Book, making the few that have survived very special.

NYETIMBER in West Chiltington, is one of England's highest-profile sparkling wine producers. Frequently served up at royal events, it was chosen for the Queen's barge during the Diamond Jubilee pageant.The vineyard is a short walk from the cottage and covers over 400 acres of rolling English countryside.

Dyke farm shop is a 8 minute walk where they have a variety of local products including: milk, bread, jams, preserves, oils and marinades, plus mouth watering home-made cakes, pies and quiches.

Our wonderful local pub, The Rising Sun is a short walk from the cottage and still runs as a 'free-house' where you can get a quick snack or hearty home-made meal. Live music every-other Tuesday.


South Downs Way, including Cissbury Ring, Chanctonbury Ring, Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. There are many lovely walks in the South Downs National Park straight from the front door of the cottage, including to Amberley, Arundel, Washington and Storrington.

Fishers Farm Park (6 miles) is the award-winning family visitor attraction located on the edge of the South Downs National Park. Open all year- a must for anyone with younger children!

We are so pleased you had a lovely Christmas in Goat Cottage and luckily the power stayed on in those terrible storms! We do hope that the dimensions of the cottage are accurately described and the price reflects the quality of a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage in an idyllic location. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Warm wishes, Tim, Tracey and family

We found this place very quiet and peaceful in the countryside. It was an adventure to get to here, and the instructions from Tracey and Tim how to get to Goats Cottage was like a “treasure hunt”… More

Thank you Louisa!
We are so pleased your enjoyed your stay! A road without a name is always a challenge!! The goats left about 100 years ago - probably best as they can be a bit smelly! We hope your family made their flight from Gatwick and look forward to welcoming you again one day.

"Wonderful location"

Goat Cottage is in a lovely rural spot backing onto delightful fields, but is also very accessible to many great places mostly within about half an hour's drive - such as Amberley, Arundel, Singleton (Weald & Downland museum) and Chichester to name but a few. There are great footpaths and the RSPB nature reserve at Pulborough Brooks is very close too. We loved having breakfast out on the patio which caught the sun in the morning. We would love to return as we quickly felt that Goat cottage was "home".

"Cute cottage in beautiful location"

We had a lovely stay in Goat Cottage for a long weekend to celebrate my parents' golden anniversary. The cottage is in a beautiful location, with a great outlook over fields towards the South Downs. There are plenty great walks nearby or from the cottage's doorstep. The cottage is very well equipped & thoughtfully decorated, making for a fun and relaxing weekend all round.

"Countryside at its best"

The owners were very helpful from the time of booking until the end of our stay. We found the amenities in excellent condition. We stayed at the cottage with four adults using all bedrooms. The location was as expected: quiet with beautiful views over the countryside. Great for walks. The pub in the village of Nutbourne can be highly recommended as well as the farm shop close by.
