Walnut Tree House is possibly the oldest property in Rustington dating from the 15th Century. Until the fifties it was a working farm but slowly the land was sold. Originally a medieval timber frame hall house. In Georgian times a new front door and portico added. The house was refaced in flint when 2 inglenook fireplaces were added.

In late Victorian times the bay windows were added and the leaded light windows. In about 1910 the house was renovated and 2 mill stones from the demolished Rustington Windmill were placed as fire hearths.

Accomodation: The accommodation is over 3 floors in the older part of this semi-detached house. Features of the property are low ceilings and beams throughout. It is a double fronted house with the Front Door to the entrance hall leading on the right to the kitchen and the Living Room on the left. A utility room and WC lead off at the rear.

The Farmhouse Kitchen has a 6 burner range, granite worktops, dishwasher, fridge & freezer. The Kitchen is open plan to the Dining Room with a large feature inglenook fireplace and a large Riley Mahogany Dining Table with seating for 8.

The Living Room at it’s largest 25’ x 12’, again has an Inglenook fireplace around which there is seating for eight on three settees. There is a television with free view channels. The study area off, has a desk and chair with facility for a computer link up.

There is a king size bed, fireplace and cupboards for clothes storage. The second bedroom is a large double with dressing Bathroom en suite.

We were a group of 9 (on a Hen weekend) and each of us absolutley loved this property, it's full of character and charm. It's spacious and very well equipt (esp kitchen), but as mentioned on previous review the fridge is tiny! We had plenty of clean towels, the whole house was very clean and tidy. Heating is fab and warmed up quickly. The garden is well kept and we made use of the table and chairs; enjoying the sunshine. Beach is about a 15 min walk and maybe 45 mins to Littlehampton. Communication with the owner was good and again met on arrival. Wireless excellent.

Rustington is a lovely village with lots of local shops. Littlehampton is nto so great but they do have a lovely restaurant called The Fish Factory, and if you fancy a thrill the Action Boat was so much fun!!

I would recommend the house and area in a flash for all ages.
Owner's Response: Thank you Charlotte. We are so pleased that you had a great holiday at our house.

Very old property, full of character and plenty of room for 10 of us and a 3 year old. We loved the quirkyness and appreciated the history. The house was clean and organised on arrival (lovely bedding and towels) and we were welcomed by Val Capon who showed us around. The kitchen, although large, is not terribly well equiped - the fridge is much too small (the owners know this!), the dishwasher doesn't work well and the washing up facilities were very cramped for such a large party. The showers and plumbing in general left a bit to be desired, but we half expected this in such an old house! The children amongst us loved the funfare and the East Beach Cafe in Littlehampton. Would certainly recommend this house and be happy to visit again. Lovely for a family gathering
