Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

Over 150 years ago The Potting Shed was central to a 27 acre orchard located on the south facing slopes in the tiny hamlet of Little Bognor that look straight to the South Downs. For it was here that workers gathered to collect their wages from a downstairs office that is now the main bedroom in this beautiful cottage.

Today it is a most charming oak clad and stone two bedroom detached holiday cottage within the South Downs National Park. The cottage shares the grounds of the owners' home and is laid out with the living room and kitchen area on the ground floor and the two bedrooms and bathroom below. Double doors from the living room open onto the outside terrace which gives the cottage much natural light. A feature woodburning stove which although gas gives a focus to the room and a cosy warm glow in winter.

The cottage is very comfortable and comprehensively equipped. The kitchen and dining area is also bright and spacious and sits at a slightly raised level to the main living room. The main bedroom below is fitted with a king sized bed while the second bedroom is fitted with three foot bunk beds. Since this room is smaller there is the option of using a sofa bed in the living room should flexibility of accommodation be needed. There is an additional charge for use of linen when the sofa bed is required. The main bathroom is fitted with a bath and shower attachment above and there is also a cloakroom on the main floor.

The West Sussex region

Little Bognor is a tiny hamlet that enjoys peace and seclusion yet is perfectly located to explore this beautiful area within the South Downs National Park. Consisting of just a few houses an old mill and a letterbox! there are outstanding views towards the South Downs and every opportunity to enjoy lovely walks from the doorstep.

Three miles away the Pulborough Brooks fall on the boundary of the Park and incorporate the River Arun flood plain. It is in fact a deliberate flood plain, so periodically it becomes a spectacular lake totally transforming the landscape. 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 and just five miles from the cottage. 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. It is five miles from the Potting Shed so for the keen golfer is very convenient indeed.

Six 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.

A short distance west from Little Bognor 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.

This area of West Sussex has a variety of events that occur through the year from Goodwood racing and the Goodwood motorsport meetings, to the Petworth Festival, racing at Fontwell and polo at Cowdray. Details on all of these are found under our 'What's on' heading.


Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester Harbour and Emsworth in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.

The chalk downland of the South Downs National Park cover a large part of Sussex from where they meet the sea at Beachy Head in East Sussex through to the Hampshire border near South Harting in the west.

Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex and Brighton and Hove on the Sussex coast is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Arundel and Lewes are two historic towns within the county both have imposing castles and are popular towns to visit.

The climate enjoyed in Sussex is above the average for Great Britain, which makes it ideal for visiting throughout the year.
