Imposing in appearance, the building has a notable history, with previous occupants including the artist and entomologist, Peter Buckler, and it is reputed that Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton were once guests of then owner who was the baker to the Royal Navy. Today, Lumley Mill is often the subject of local artists, keen to capture its character and charm.

There is a large bathroom which is accessed through one of the 2 double bedrooms, as well as a separate shower room. On the ground floor, there is a generous kitchen featuring a 4-oven Aga.

The dining area is open to the kitchen and can comfortably seat 8 or more for dinner. There is a very stylish sitting room with doors opening onto a private patio with the mill stream running past. There is also the benefit of a utility room.

Sat right on the Hampshire/Sussex border, Toll House is perfect for a quiet retreat away from the crowds or would equally be suitable as a holiday base for those looking to explore the attractions and stunning natural surroundings that Hampshire and Sussex have to offer.

Please be aware that the mill stream runs directly alongside the house and patio, with no barrier in some places. Guests with small children should be aware of this.

The England region

This area enjoys some of the best levels of sunshine in the U.K. Emsworth is situated right on the west Sussex/Hampshire borders, two of the most beautiful counties in England. Stunning coastlines combined with rolling countryside make it a unique mixture and it has numerous historical connections.

The nearby naval city of Portsmouth is where The Victory ship is berthed and Chichester to the east has its famous Roman connections, exxamples of which are exhibited at the Fishbourne Roman Palace.

Emsworth

Situated at the top of Chichester Harbour, Emsworth is a delightful market town popular with sailors, walkers, artists and tourists. It has two tidal mill ponds which are host to a variety of wild life. It is full of history, with a long established reputation for oyster fishing and boat building and still boasts traditional shipwrights and chandeliers.

The sailing club is a thriving centre for sailing enthusiasts and the pretty streets have a fascinating mixture of different architectural styles. A gentle walk around the village, which has superb harbour views, gives a genuine feel for the past. There are excellent road links to Portsmouth and Chichester (15 minute drive to both approximately) and there is also a mainline station to London. There is an interesting selection of shops in the town itself and there are numerous places of interest to visit in the area.

These include Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, one of the largest vantage points in Europe, the internationally renowned Chichester Festival Theatre at Chichester, polo at Cowdray near Midhurst and horse racing and motor sports at Goodwood. In addition to the sailing at Emsworth there is also a very popular sandy beach at West Wittering which attracts wind surfers and surfers, as well as sun bathers.

“GORGEOUS.”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2014

Absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I and three children and grandparents stayed in this beautiful house. The children loved playing hide and seek in all the rooms and loved the big bathroom!! My father loved cooking on the aga for all the family. We will not hesitate to book toll house again.

“Great location”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

This house is really so cute and juste perfect for a idyllic and quiet vacation-trip! It's located in a very nice smal city, not far from Portsmouth. Inside it's really cosy and very good outfitted with everythink you need for a comfortable stay! I would go there again!

So glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love for you to stay again one day too. Have a great Christmas!

“Uniquely characterful and extremely spacious”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2014

As special as any property from a Landmark Trust or National Trust brochure the huge hall, tiled floors and wipe clean sofas meant that no serious anxiety ensued from our decision to bring our large, hairy and often muddy dog on holiday, After all, it would have been a shame not to have witnessed her racing about on nearby West Wittering beach. The weather was gloomy and showery during our stay, so rather than sit outside in the statued, streamside courtyard we sat by the aga in the enormous kitchen and watched the ducks through the large windows. There is one winding, muralled staircase that leads to three very good-sized bedrooms and another staircase leading nowhere just for show. Next to that is a wonderfully spacious bathoom which reminds one of the room in 'Mary Poppins' where they float around with laughter near the ceiling. Overall, an eccentric and charming place to stay, close to so many interesting sites and lovely seaside villages, the original builder of which appears to have been a colourful character with a true riches to rags life-story.

Thank you for your review. Toll House certainly is a unique and unusual property and it is great to see that you enjoyed your stay so much. If we can be of any assistance to you in the future, please do just let us know. Kind regards, Pallant Holiday Lets

“Ausgezeichnetes Ferienhaus”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2014

Zusammen mit meinen Eltern verbrachten meine Frau und ich eine wundervolle Ferienwoche in diesem riesigen, ruhigen, schlossähnlichen Haus. Die drei große Schlafzimmer, zwei Bäder, eines davon mit einer freistehenden Badewanne, das gemütliche Wohnzimmer, die riesige Essküche und der nette, kleine Garten direkt neben dem Bach bringen mich noch heute zum Träumen. Bettwäsche, Hand- und Geschirrtücher sind inklusive. Geschirr, Gläser und Besteck sind reichlich vorhanden, ein Geschirrspüler hilft der/dem Hausfrau/-mann. Der AGA-Küchenherd ist gigantisch, allerdings nicht einfach zu händeln. Eine Waschmaschine ist bei Bedarf einsatzbereit, der immer heiße AGA-Herd trocknet die Wäsche schnell. Fazit: Wir hatten einen wundervoller Urlaub in einem der schönsten Ferienhäuser Englands.

“Charming, delightful and unusual!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2014

Very clean with everything we needed, a picturesque house with a lovely stream running by....pretty walks straight from the house and near to the town of EMSWORTH with restaurants, sea, harbour, sailing and all the small shops you need. The Kitchen was a great living area where I could cook for my family whilst enjoying their company. The bedrooms were full of character and the main bathroom like a dream.

“Just Perfect for a Country Stayaway”

Reviewed 25 May 2012

My wife and I (from Australia) and our son and his family (from USA) had a wonderful five day stay at the Toll House in Emsworth a couple of weeks ago. To our surprise we were amazed just how spacious the accommodation was, and despite a couple of small children in our party, there were plenty of areas to rest up and relax while the children could play elsewhere in the house. The standard of furnishing and comprehensive inventory of kitchen implements, plates, wine glasses etc as well as a good selection of DVDs and books to read were outstanding. A laundry and good heating were also to be found. A good range of condiments, bowl of fresh fruit and a welcoming bottle of wine was very much appreciated. All bedding and towels etc were top class. The house is part of a larger charming historic building and the owners take great pride in the accommodation and the surrounds. The location is very convenient to local pubs and other attractions which can be reached by walking. The house is in a quiet location, with friendly neighbours and lovely walks down lanes and countryside at the doorstep. The owners are lovely people who will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and provide advice on local events, restaurants etc - they were most helpful in every way. My only caution would be for people who may have trouble accessing stairs as the bedrooms and bathrooms are located upstairs but were ok for us and two small children (2 1/2 and 6 years of age). All in all, Toll House exceeded all our expectation, and we felt at home, lacked for nothing and found it to be great value for money for our stay in the UK countryside. Highly recommended.

It's great to read you enjoyed your stay at Toll House so much and we look forward to seeing you again if you would like to stay any time in the future.
