The village of Lavant is conveniently located for those who enjoy the great outdoors, being close to some of the prettiest walks that Sussex has to offer and close to Centurian Way, with a foot and cycle path that takes you into Chichester.
Within a couple of minutes' walk, is The Royal Oak public house/restaurant, offering excellent food and a pleasant garden to sit in. The Earl of March also offers food of the highest quality, and is also in the village.
For keen walkers there is stunning countryside surrounding the village, and a favourite local landmark, Seven Points, which is a very good vantage point from which there are panoramic views, is accessed up Chalkpit Lane, just up the road from the cottage.
An obvious attraction almost on the doorstep is The Goodwood Estate, with two golf courses, and the annual Festival of Speed, Glorious Goodwood horse racing and the Goodwood Revival.
From Chichester there are links along the coast by bus and train to Portsmouth and the Historic Dockyards and Brighton, while London can be reached via the railway station at Chichester.
The beautiful and historic city of Chichester, with its world famous cathedral, is only just over two miles away. Along with a very varied shopping centre, and good parking facilities, it offers the renowned Festival Theatre with stars from all over the world appearing in productions all year round, a variety of restaurants, cinema and bowling complex and canal.
In addition to the beauitiful surrounding countryside, the area is blessed with some of the finest beaches in Southern England. The sandy beach at West Wittering attracts visitors all year round, but particularly in the summer months, and there are several famous sailing villages nearby, such as Bosham and Itchenor. Cowes Week is also an immensely popular event, and ferries from Portsmouth, approximately 15 miles away, can take you to the Isle of Wight. Other events and places to visit include the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in Singleton, which is only a few miles away, polo at Cowdray in Midhurst (about 10 miles to the north), and the annual Arundel Festival.
