Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Chichester

Single storey 1 bedroom house to sleep 2-4 people with sofabed.

Set on a working farm in the Rother valley within the South Downs National Park, the Cart Shed has uninterrupted views of the Downs, so it is the ideal place to get away from it all, stepping straight into perfect walking, cycling or riding countryside. Farm centrally sited at the end of a long scenic drive, it is the most southerly farm building, enjoying its own separate well fenced garden, with patio and furniture to enjoy the views in complete privacy. The VisitBritain 4 star rated house includes a lounge/dining room containing the sofabed and an extra settee, plus double doors onto the South patio; a well fitted kitchen, with a breakfast area, is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer; a kingsize double bedroom is furnished with tasteful antique pine furniture; a fresh white bathroom contains a bath with shower, a toilet, tumble dryer and airing cupboard. The glass panelled entrance has a large coat and clothes cupboard with a handy boot rack for walkers.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for all the thoughtful fine touches here. Our stay has seemed all too short. We enjoyed one of your suggested walks in your Local Walks file to the Devil's Humps, a beautiful viewpoint over West Sussex. We hope to return soon if possible.

A wonderful long weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Cart House was a beautiful, restful, home from home. We had a wonderful weekend exploring the area with our puppy and felt very welcomed by Pamela. The guest walking guides and maps were very helpful and we sampled many of the suggested walks and views. Thanks you very much- we will be visiting again!

Owner's Response: It is always so good to have spontaneous feedback from new guests about what they think of our farm environment, especially when we are lucky enough to live here all the time. Thank you to our guests for their generous comments, it is so satisfying to know that they were able to enjoy our beautiful valley with their lovely dog. It would take many visits to the Cart Shed to see all we have to offer in the South Downs National Park and these guests would certainly be most welcome again.

Lovely property in a great area

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, had everything we needed. Although close to the neighbouring farmhouse, from the terrace and garden at the rear all you see is countryside and horses in the nearby field. The property had all the facilities as described and is well looked after by the owners. The property is in a lovely area with good pubs and many attractions within a short drive.

Owner's Response: We are always very pleased when our guests spare the time on their return to write a review, thank you to our guest for doing this. It is always the first-hand experience of others that future clients want to hear. Indeed our cottage has an amazing location, which gives peace and tranquility to people who come from more urban locations. It is also an area with much to offer in the way of places to visit and beautiful landscapes to walk through. Our guest files provide much information to help you choose which of these special locations to visit.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Keith and Pamela go out of their way to make this cottage an supreme venue. It is cosy and very well equiped. The views from the backyard are beautiful and the area is great for walking. Plenty of Explorer maps available if you don't have any. We stayed for 14 days and would be glad to come again. Hopefully the weather will be as good as we had this time. But theb again we always have good weather. England is great. O, and do visit the pub in Selham: the three moles. Great atmosphere and lovely people. Until next time!

Owner's Response: How very kind of these guests to spare the time to share their impressions of the Cart Shed with others. It is so good to feel that we had provided enough information about our local district, that they were able to explore it at length and in great detail. Even after a fortnight with us there were still places to be visited and explored. Thank you to these guests for their generous comments about our cottage.

April 2014 4 night break

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, clean, cosy, lovely cottage for a short break! The views were amazing and certainly made waking up much easier every morning. So peaceful with endless walks on your doorstep, great local pub with high quality food and friendly staff and beach walks a short drive away. Fully equipped kitchen (better than my own!), clean linnen and towels and a very well kept garden - all in all no complaints and will definately be returning again! Thank you to the welcoming and friendly owners who made our stay even nicer.

Owner's Response: We would be very pleased to welcome our guests and their family again, their visit was easily arranged at quite short notice. It was our privilege to introduce them to the lovely area in which we live and for them to explore our many local beauty spots. It was so rewarding to hear that we meet our guests needs within the Cart Shed and that they left the accommodation as they found it. Thank you very much!

Lucky break

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pamela, Very comfortable, well equipped barn. Lovely location for walking and a quiet break. We were very lucky to have a bright day considering bad weather before and after our weekend away. Hope to return for a long summer weekend.

Owner's Response: With the untoward weather we have been having in recent weeks, it is lovely that our guests' break from home had not been entirely ruined by the unpredictable forces of nature. Thank you so much to our end of year guests for their kind comments. We look forward to welcoming them back in the summer, when they can further enjoy the scenery of the Rother valley, hopefully in better weather.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our guests sampled what we are lucky enough to have around us all the time and enjoyed our location as much as we do. Thank you for your generous compliments and for giving such an accurate picture of our beautiful valley with such lovely walks, but also viewpoints for guests who want to use their car to share these landscapes. We provide two files at the Cart Shed that outline our district's attractions, as well as local walks of varying lengths to give the best choice for our visitors.Thanks also to our guests for the lovely way they left the Cart Shed, it helps us so much to maintain the highest standards for future visitors.

Our property is best suited to 1-2 smaller children who could use the cot provided or the sofabed. A high chair is available and expected to be used for toddlers, in order to retain the high standard of cleanliness within the Cart Shed. A supplement of £50 per extra guest is charged for the use of the sofabed and cot. This includes the linen for the sofabed and extra towels, together with extra kitchen chairs. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times around the farm for safety reasons and they may not play on the bales as this is most dangerous. Dogs must be kept on their leads around the farm buildings as we have a working cat pack, who do an excellent job and do not appreciate being chased! Dogs are charged at £35 per week for each dog, they should not be left unattended during their stay. We require that all dogs should be kept off the furniture and will provide throws to protect our linen sofas and give you peace of mind, whilst re-assuring our non dog owning guests
