About the property

The Cottage at Deerleap - a cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

The Cottage at Deerleap is a beautifully presented courtyard cottage set in the grounds of an impressive period house in the delightful Hampshire village of Rowlands Castle. The cottage is all on one level and so has easy access. There is a very comfortable sitting room with a large sofa, TV and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard.

The kitchen to the cottage is open plan to the dining area. It is equipped with a cooker with hob, microwave, fridge (with small freezer section), washer/dryer, as well as all the equipment and utensils you will need. There are 2 stylish double bedrooms. One of them has its own en-suite shower room and a pair of comfortable armchairs. The second bedroom has a sofa (which can be used as a sofa bed) and is next door to the second shower room. This is an ideal cottage for 2 couples to share.

Guests of the cottage have access to the peaceful orchard garden to the main house. There is secure parking on the gravelled driveway which is access through electric gates.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Deerleap Cottage is a special place for a family wanting a bit of space to relax while touring the area. It is thoughtfully and well equipped, very comfortably furnished, situated in a beautiful setting on an estate with use of a private guest garden, with friendly, helpful owners nearby. A generous welcome basket awaited us on arrival. Many conveniences lay in the village just outside the gate, such as shops, pubs, train station, and we managed to fill an entire week plus with delightful activities in the vicinity--Arundel Castle, beaches, the Mary Rose in Portsmouth, market day in Chichester, and more. Our family, 3 adults and an 11- year old, were reluctant to leave this lovely rental, one of the very best in the past 10 years!

Nice and comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at Deerleap Cottage. It is nicely furnished and well equipped with all you need for an extended holiday. The Cottage at Rowlands Castle is ideal for tours to Portsmouth or the Isle of Wight and even London is only 1.5 hours away by train from the local railway station. Picturesque castles, stylish manor houses and gardens all nearby. My wife and I enjoyed our holiday very much.

Great choice, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property! Private, secure, clean, roomy - everything you need. The grounds are beautiful and the cottage is very well presented. It was great after a month of travelling to have so much room and all the facilities of your own home. Owners were friendly and approachable, they are on the grounds but don't interfere with your stay. Security deposit was refunded in good time and the property manager - Laura was professional and easy to deal with.

Ein schöner Frühsommer in Südengland

  • 5 of 5

Allein schon die Einfahrt von Herrenhaus ist was besonderes . Der Empfang war herzlich und zuvorkommend .

Das Häuschen ist wunderschön , sehr sauber und gepflegt .

Von Roland Castle aus kann man gut ganz Südengland erkunden . Selbst ein Ausflug London war kein großer Aufwand.

Wir waren mit dem Auto aus Süddeutschland unterwegs und es ging selbst mit zwei Kindern alles gut .

Die Unterkunft bedingungslos zu empfehlen .

Car: recommended

Deerleap is a landmark in the desirable Hampshire village of Rowlands Castle. It is located directly opposite the village green and is within yards of the local shops and village centre pubs. Rowlands Castle also benefits from a mainline railway station, with London Waterloo just 90 minutes away.

A little further afield, the cities of Portsmouth and Chichester are within easy reach by either road or rail. Portsmouth is famous for being home to the Royal Navy and also offers excellent shopping, restaurants and bars at the Gun Wharf Quays waterfront development. Chichester is an historic cathedral city with it origins dating back to Roman times. It also offers a great selection of shops and eateries set in the attractive city centre. The famous Goodwood Estate is just to the north of Chichester and is about 10 miles from Deerleap. Goodwood is as famous now for its motor racing events as it is for its horse racing. The Goodwood Revival, the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Glorious Goodwood are all firm favourites on the international social calendar.
