House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
If you like to chill and relax then Echo House is perfect for you. This wonderful detached home overlooks the South Downs National Park and the stunning Pulborough Brooks. The RSPB Nature Reserve is only one mile away and glorious walks across the Brooks start straight from the front door.
This three bedroom home is just beautifully presented with a fabulous kitchen and living space around a warming central fire, a real highlight. Sky Movies and Sky Sports are on the big screen in this room! The kitchen here is comprehensively equipped with a dual range oven to top it off. Just off the kitchen is a dining area that is neatly offset. At the front is a glorious living room perfect for quiet relaxation and reflection on the day just gone!
The house will sleep between five and six guests. There are three bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king sized double bed and an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom is fitted with twin beds that can be linked if required into a super king sized double bed. Please let us know how you would like this room set up for your holiday, as it will be set up as a twin room unless you request the beds be linked. This room also has a third bed available where extra accommodation is needed maybe for a young family or friends. Bedroom three is a single room. There is a full family bathroom with bath and shower above and downstairs there is also a full shower room.
The gardens rise behind the house with views towards the South Downs and with plenty of space to eat outdoors it's a great place to be in the summer.

The South East England region
Three miles south east in the direction of Storrington and nestling at the foot of the South Downs is Parham House, a magnificent Elizabethan home that is a real jewel. Again it is featured under 'Places to visit' - a half day there is time well spent.
Heading northwest from Pulborough is the historic market town of Petworth. It is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The house and its grounds are now owned by the National Trust. The magnificent country house contains an internationally renowned art collection with numerous works by Turner. Petworth itself was immortalised in his paintings. The town is full of quaint houses and cottages, many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops and tearooms so it makes the ideal place for a stroll following a visit to Petworth House and Park.
The South Downs National Park is literally the other side of the road from Echo House. The Pulborough Brooks, here forming the Park's northern boundary is a deliberate flood plain for the River Arun as it flows south towards Arundel. Periodically it becomes a spectacular lake totally transforming the landscape here. There are many excellent walks across the Brooks and along the banks of the River Arun offering uninterrupted views south towards the South Downs. Part of the Brooks contains one of the RSPB's major reserves in the south. We carry a link to the RSPB reserve within 'Places to visit' on our website.
Also nearby is the West Sussex Golf Club which is regularly judged one of the outstanding inland courses in Britain with 'a priceless oasis of heather, sand, heath and trees beneath the Sussex Downs'. For any golf lover, staying at Riverside is very convenient indeed.
